Lauren Conrad just can’t get enough of living in front of the cameras! She reportedly left all the mishigas on “The Hills” to take a break from the craziness of life in the spotlight, and has since tried her hand at launching a clothing line (the line initially failed, but has since been repackaged for Kohl’s stores, and shockingly there are NO petite sizes available in her line, missy sizes only). Well, it seems that she is ready for round two, beacuse the 5’3″ petite fashionista is headed for a new reality show on MTV, which apparently focuses on her career.
I’m not sure we can call her a “star,” although she has certainly gained some level of celebrity and most of us know who she is. Conrad is one of the new breed of pseudo characters/personalities that reality TV programs have spawned over the last several years. Despite the notoriety, some have argued that these reality celebrities are a far cry from real “stars,” given their lack of actual acting talent. All we can say is that the standard for being a star in Hollywood has certainly been lowered. It seems these days anyone can end up a celebrity these days. Hopefully Conrad’s new series will show audiences something new, so she can silence the doubters.
In a recent interview on HollywoodScoop.com Conrad says:
On her post-TV life:
“A lot of the craziness is over. It’s the calm after the storm.”
“When you are working really hard and you’re really focused on your career, a lot of other things suffer. It takesa lot of effort to have a successful career, have great relationships in your life and have a healthy lifestyle. It’s just about compromise.”
On staying grounded:
“One way to stay grounded in the entertainment industry is to surround yourself with very good people that will constantly remind you how uncool you are. It helps that I have an amazing family and I have really great friends that I’ve had since I was a little kid and they’re all still around me, reminding me how lame I am.”
“You know, the next thing I’m probably going to do is getting into producing. For it’s more about finding the time that I really have to dedicate to the beginning stages because I want the first project I do to be something really special.”
On her other upcoming projects:
“Right now, I’m working on putting together my next book series; working on the Kohl’s line…which has taken up a lot of time and has been really, really fun to do.”
On her success as a writer:
“A little bizarre but really cool.”
On taking on a dozen different projects and squeezing in workouts with her beau:
“It helps if your friends and boyfriend like to work out because then you can kill two birds with one stone.”
On her kickboxing sessions:
“Any way to make a workout feel like playtime is great. The stress just melts away.”
