Lauren Conrad says The Hills was totally real. Mostly. Sort of.
In the new issue of Allure, the 26-year-old former reality star says, "I think the story they told wasn't a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was."
"They aren't going to be there for everything. Sometimes two characters will get into a fight, and that's important to the story line. The [producers] need that reenacted."
Most of the drama was based on reality, however. Including LC dating Brody Jenner.
"[We] did date," she says. "It was pretty brief. There was definitely editing to drag it out."
Conrad, who is currently dating musician William Tell, shares what she loves in a guy:
"You don't want a slob, but you don't want a guy who is constantly borrowing your tweezers ... The last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it's slim pickings."
Now that the celebrity fashion designer and Lauren Conrad Beauty author has gotten used to the spotlight, she's learned not to take things so seriously.
"I think anyone in the public eye is going to be hated, and a lesson that I needed to learn quickly is that it is impossible to please everybody," she says.
"One person will call you classy, another will call you boring."
"People felt that a lot of the things I had were undeserved, maybe because I didn't have a specific talent. I was more of a regular girl and maybe didn't deserve the attention."
