Lauren Conrad Gears Up For Life Beyond The Hills

The stars of The Hills have hinted that Season 5 will be their last -- and leading lady Lauren Conrad's not doing anything to dispel rumors that the show's finally run its course.

“My biggest thing with the show was that I wanted to walk away from it while it’s still a great thing,” she reveals in the latest issue of Seventeen magazine. “I always want to remember it that way. I gave MTV a deadline and said, ‘This is as long as I can do it and stay sane.’"

So what will everyone be doing post-Hills?

Audrina wants to act. Lo wants to host TV shows. Whitney has The City. I'll have more time to write. I’ll have the clothing line to focus on more. And I’m really interested in working behind the camera and producing,” said Conrad, who's currently working on three novels (loosely) based around her life in L.A.

And as for Heidi and Spencer? "More music videos? Ha! I don’t know," Conrad laughed. "I do believe they plan to take over the world."
