Lauren Conrad appeared on two of MTV’s biggest reality shows: “Laguna Beach” and, later, “The Hills.” While she introduced herself to the world on “Laguna,” it was her starring role on “The Hills” that helped launch her from small-screen starlet to full-on star and mogul.
Conrad left “Hills” in 2009 to make room for former “Laguna” frenemy Kristin Cavallari to lead the charge on the show, but did return in 2010 to say goodbye to the series’ finale event . With several years behind her, MTV News wondered whether she would ever consider a one-off reunion special.
“I don’t know, because I catch up [with] anyone I still talk to from the show. I get to see [them] regularly anyway,” Conrad explained while in New York City on a book tour for her latest piece of fiction, “The Fame Game.” “So, that just happens on a Friday night, but it’s a game night at my apartment, which is so much more fun [than a reunion special].”
Conrad also shared that any reality TV, at this moment, isn’t on her agenda. Though she had been in talks to star in a new MTV series in 2010 that would focus more on her work life, it never came together. These days, she’s focused on her work as a writer and fashion designer.
“I’m just really happy with where I left off,” she said. “I think if you’re going to do a reality show, you have this obligation to share your life with people, and I did it for as long as I could, then I kind of reclaimed my own life. So, no plans to right now, but you never say never, and you always listen to ideas.”
