Lauren Conrad Makes Her ‘Hills’ Return On Finale Aftershow

'I'm just really proud,' LC says of her five seasons on the show.

Immediately after [url id=”/shows/the_hills/season_6/series.jhtml”]”The Hills”[/url] ended its six-season run on Tuesday (July 13), the show’s original star, Lauren Conrad, stopped by its aftershow to reminisce about her time in the spotlight.

“I’m just really proud I was able to be a part of it,” she said. “It was a fun show to do. … There’s never, like, a moment I really regret. When you choose to share your life with an audience, you share it all.”

And that includes the bad times, like one dark day during her stint at Teen Vogue. “I think that my worst day was — and I feel bad saying it, because she’s here now — the day I met Kelly Cutrone and she made me cry [when I needed tickets for a fashion show],” she said. But all is well now between the two: “I love Kelly,” she added.

Not only did working at Teen Vogue give LC the chance to meet Cutrone, it also gave her one very famous label: the girl who didn’t choose Paris and instead chose Jason Wahler. What would she do if faced with that decision now? “Always choose Paris! Always!” she laughed.

She added that she learned “a lot” about herself while with Jason. “You go through lots of different relationships, [and I realized I should] be a more independent person. Don’t lose yourself in a relationship. Always choose Paris.”

It wouldn’t have been a “Hills” aftershow if the topic of Heidi Montag didn’t come up, and LC remained loyal to her onetime bestie, although she was a bit wistful. “I think there’s only so much you can do and you have to let go,” she explained. “You have to give your friends your blessing and let them live their lives.”
