In the new issue of Cosmopolitan, Lauren Conrad describes how she finished her last day of shooting for The Hills, and if you're a fan of the series, it should come as no surprise that the emotional LC cried as she said her goodbyes.
But the tears have dried, and she's ready for a fresh start.
"I've always had another season to look forward to, but now life is a little more unplanned," the lovable 23-year-old says. "It's really exciting."
The star, whose last episode of The Hills airs Sunday, says the awkward talk she had with former BFF Heidi Montag only told viewers half the story.
According to Conrad, the producers of the show kept pushing her to meet up with Montag throughout the fifth season, knowing it would be her last.
“I’m trying to move on, but they won’t let me," Lauren Conrad said.
"What they didn’t get is that I didn’t want to fight with her anymore. It’s hard to look at somebody who used to be your best friend and say, ‘We can’t be friends. Too much has happened.’ When someone keeps pushing you into the same position, you get upset.”
Now that her reality TV days are over, the often-glamorous star can look forward to more of what she prefers - a more low-key life with beau Kyle Howard.
"I feel sexiest with him when I'm in sweatpants and no makeup," she says of her boyfriend of about nine months, who stars on the TBS show My Boys.
"They are really good together," pal Lo Bosworth says. "Sometimes it takes somehow who treats you right to show you there's something else out there."
We'll certainly miss her, but look forward to finding out what she gets up too next. Click to enlarge more Lauren Conrad pictures, past and present:
