It's been exactly two years since Lauren Conrad left "The Hills," the MTV reality show that made her a household name.
Since then, she's become a bestselling author and is launching her own fashion line, Paper Crown, in July. In a new interview with Lucky magazine, L.C. gets candid about her time on "The Hills," why the network didn't pick up her new reality show idea, and why she avoids eating chicken! But first, check out the glamor girl's cover and her most memorable looks:
On why she signed on for "The Hills":
“I never wanted to end up in entertainment; that wasn’t the goal,” explains Conrad. “I was doing the show to end up in fashion. But I’m totally aware that without 'The Hills,' I wouldn't be where I am.”
On launching her new line, Paper Crown, without the help of MTV:
“It’s easier to launch the line without MTV,” she says. “A lot of people in fashion don’t want to be linked with anything that has to do with reality TV. Showrooms were turning us down.”
On why MTV deemed her show too “highbrow”:
“It didn’t feel like a perfect fit,” Conrad says. “It’s difficult to compete with all the 'Jersey Shore'-type shows out there. Besides, there weren’t any scenes of me getting drunk or fighting, so what’s the point?”
On why she hates the gym: “I’m just not a fan of the gym. In fact, I hate it. I understand loving the feeling you get after working out -- all those endorphins. But going there? It’s the worst.”
On how her eating habits have changed: “I’m now focusing a lot more on my health. I no longer eat pork, I rarely eat beef, and I don’t like chicken now because my mother keeps four hens as pets. I’m not kidding.”
