Lauren Conrad Can't Step Away From The Jersey Shore!

Lauren Conrad may not be keeping up with Kristin Cavallari and The Hills -- but the former reality star says she hasn't missed a single episode of Jersey Shore!

"I love it," she told UsMagazine.com last weekend. "We [had a doubleheader] last night and it was the highlight of my week. It was awesome," she gushed, giving a special shout-out to Ronnie (and his right hook). "[H]e's all, 'one shot kid.' And the guy [from the boardwalk] is out!"

So does that mean Ron Ron's her favorite J. Shore cast member? Well, according to LC, she's also partial to JWOWW ("I really like [her] just because she can throw a punch."). But -- unlike Kristin (who says she's Mike's number one fan) -- Lauren's just not sure she's feelin' the Sitch.

"I have a love-hate [relationship] with The Situation," she told Us. "I'm like, 'you are not that cool, but then I am like, 'Uuugh you are so entertaining!'"
