From MTV Stars To Self-Help Gurus! 5 Former Hillzies Doling Out Advice

Earlier this morning we learned that Lauren Conrad, whose empire continues to grow at an astounding rate, locked down a writing gig at Forbes Lifestyle. She'll be sharing her tips on how to successfully run a business and website, write a book and produce a fashion line (not all at once, we hope). Since we're simply in awe of her burgeoning career (and slightly curious about why so many of her former costars are now on the self-help circuit), we've rounded up other past "Hills" casties who've dabbled in the advice game.

Spencer Pratt
