Lauren Conrad is Lucky magazine's July cover girl and we're thrilled! More than any other reality star, we have a soft spot for Lauren. We cheered for her on The Hills, shook our fist at MTV when they didn't pick up her show and just generally like her.
Lucky grilled Lauren on everything from reality life to her budding fashion career. Here are some clips from the interview:
On why she signed on for The Hills:
I never wanted to end up in entertainment; that wasn’t the goal. I was doing the show to end up in fashion. But I’m totally aware that without The Hills, I wouldn’t be where I am.
On launching her new line, Paper Crown, without the help of MTV:
It’s easier to launch the line without MTV. A lot of people in fashion don’t want to be linked with anything that has to do with reality TV. Showrooms were turning us down.
On why MTV deemed her show too “highbrow”:
It didn’t feel like a perfect fit. t’s difficult to compete with all the Jersey Shore—type shows out there. Besides, there weren’t any scenes of me getting drunk or fighting, so what’s the point?
On why she hates the gym:
I’m just not a fan of the gym. In fact, I hate it. I understand loving the feeling you get after working out—all those endorphins. But going there? It’s the worst.
On how her eating habits have changed:
I’m now focusing a lot more on my health. I no longer eat pork, I rarely eat beef, and I don’t like chicken now because my mother keeps four hens as pets. I’m not kidding.
