Lauren's LA Candy and Tonight Show Segment


I was watching the Tonight Show a few nights ago and Lauren Conrad was one of the guests. She was there promoting her book, but also talking about her experiences over the last five years being one of MTV's main chicks.

A story that was particularly of interest to me was one of the last episodes of this season's The Hills. We all know that the show is staged; however, I was a bit caught off guard to find out just how fake it is...and from a [previous] cast member (since they are usually tight-lipped).

Lauren explained that the infamous telephone apology between her and Spencer was a fraud. No, I don't mean he wasn't sincere. That's a given. I mean she wasn't even on the line with him. According to LC, she didn't even know about the fake apology until the show aired. Holy Hills gossip! So is any of the show real at all? I am not so naive to think the program is real, but I thought the things that happen are staged. After Lauren's story, I can't help but wonder how many of the scenes are actually spliced together after the fact that the cast doesn't even know about, or agree to.

Watch Lauren's segment on the Tonight show.


I know I am 25, but reality TV is a guilty pleasure for me. Therefore, I am kinda interested in getting a copy of Lauren's book "LA Candy." She said that it is based on a character with similar experiences as her true life. Hmm...I recall Nicole Richie saying the same. I have her book, "The Truth About Diamonds," and can say that it is "loosely" based on Mrs. Joel Madden's life. The names may be changed but she's not fooling anyone! It was the best Hollywood gossip that I have ever experienced. She talks ish about Paris, Kelly Osbourne, Kimberly Stuart, and so many more celebs. Seriously, I read it in a day and highly recommend it.


I am hoping that Lauren's ghostwritten book is just an entertaining!

Has anyone picked it up?


P.S. You have to give it to LC, she's looking great at all of these interviews. Her dresses are stunning, the tan is fabulous, and her body is clearly in great shape.

I don't care if the whole of The Hills was made up, it's still wonderful tv to curl up to lol. And I shall always have a soft spot for LC. I may actually be tempted to pick up a copy, I wonder how good it will be?

that sounds a little crazy to me- like you said, I didn't think the show was 100% reality but 0% seems so extreme!

also....I definitely own a copy of The Truth About Diamonds...........

I was never really into LC but I do agree.. she does look great at those interviews! She looked amazing at The View in a purple dress.

I love that LC came and admitted that the show is staged. As for the book, although it sounds interesting and I am curios to find out if it is any good...i don't know if I am willing to read celebrity "novels".

I have to say I am a Hills Junkie, not that I believed everything was real, I am quite disappointed to hear this news.

As for the book, yes I picked it up and if you want you can read it after me.

Thanks for the great post!
