Lauren Conrad Will Re-Team With 'Hills' Colleagues On Her New Show

'I haven't gotten to see them in a while because they're all very busy people,' Conrad says.

NEW YORK — Fans are excited about the chance to see former "Hills" star Lauren Conrad back on the small screen for her newest MTV reality show. And LC promises that the show will be much different in tone and direction than her previous TV efforts "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills." That may mean we won't see any of those now famous mascara-streaked tears.

"Well, I never was completely done with reality. It was just reality based on my personal life," she told MTV News on Tuesday evening in New York City. Conrad held a book signing for her two latest efforts, her final "L.A. Candy" novel, "Sugar and Spice," and her aptly titled style manual, "Style." "So this time around I'm involved with producing," she continued. "I love the style they want to film it in."

Of course, the biggest change fans will notice is that instead of giving viewers a peek into her personal life, Conrad will document the challenges of starting up a fashion line from scratch. "It's focusing on my career and all the things that I love to do," she said. "So I think it'll be a very different show. So that'll be nice."

And going back into production means that Conrad will also get the chance to work with some familiar faces. "I'm excited because I get to work with some of my old crew, which is really cool," she dished. "I haven't gotten to see them in a while because they're all very busy people, but hopefully I'm going to get some familiar faces. I already have a couple of the guys from 'The Hills.' "

When the show was announced late last month, the reality TV darling gushed about returning to the network. "I am so excited to be rejoining the MTV family," she said. "The new project will follow me as I develop my new contemporary line and also touch on my other businesses."
