Kristin Cavallari says The Hills was fake. Knock us over with a feather.

Her beef with Lauren Conrad, however, was at least partially legit. Kristin discussed her old reality show days last night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

Andy Cohen asked her if her "distaste" for her former Hills and Laguna Beach cast-mate was scripted, to which she laughed loudly and shouted, "No!"

Kristin Cavallari then clarified, "I do feel like [MTV producers] put things in our heads. I mean, we were 17 and 18. They made it a lot worse than it was."

"Never go to the animal shelter 'just to look.'" - Lauren Conrad

It seems that the former star of The Hills learned this lesson the hard way ... and the CUTE way! She just adopted an adorable puppy that she named Fitz:

Lauren Conrad, Puppy

Of course, Fitz had to meet Conrad's other four-legged family member, 4-year-old Lab mix Chloe, also a rescue dog. Fortunately, it looks like that went well.

Lauren Conrad is no mean girl. Asked to say three nice things about her former Laguna Beach and Hills rival Kristin Cavallari, she came up with them easily.

"I'm just trying to get more specific. She dresses really nicely."

Lauren Conrad says The Hills was totally real. Mostly. Sort of.

  • Lauren Conrad in Allure Photo

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."

Lauren Conrad and William Tell, a law student at USC, are apparently dating. Who saw that one coming? Wow, look at all those raised hands!

LC, whose exes include Stephen Colletti, Jason Wahler, Brody Jenner, Kyle Howard and Derek Hough, has now gone the non-famous route.

Probably smartest.

In addition to being a law student, the 32-year-old William Tell is also a former guitarist for the rock band Something Corporate. Pretty cool!

Conrad, 26, has been dating Tell "for a few months," a source recently told Us. The pair, who both hail from Orange County, met in February.

"She hopes he's The One!" a Conrad pal said of Tell.

Here's hoping he is! Only time will ... you know.

We've admired Lauren Conrad's beauty for years. Now there's a book all about it!

Between her signature winged eyeliner and experimentation with colorful hair hues, the former star of The Hills has proven that she can teach her fans a thing or two about beauty just as well as any magazine editor.

Thus, the best-selling author is now coming out with a style guide.

Lauren Conrad Beauty

The 26-year-old's follow-up to her 2010 fashion how-to book Lauren Conrad Style is all about hair and makeup, and will be titled Lauren Conrad Beauty.

The publisher, Harper Collins, said in a release.

"In her first guide dedicated exclusively to beauty, Lauren covers everything you need to know to maximize your own beauty potential."

"From tips for creating a strong foundation and maintaining healthy skin and hair through diet, exercise, and all-around wellness to everyday makeup techniques and tricks of the trade for special-occasion looks, Lauren Conrad Beauty provides the advice you've been waiting for."

Lauren Conrad showed up to a signing of her latest young adult novel, The Fame Game, last night at The Grove in Los Angeles, sporting a surprising new hairstyle.

Or hair color, to be more specific.

Gone are LC's trademark long, blonde locks ... at least the bottom third of them. The back of her head was hot pink! This has become quite the hairstyle trend of late.

From Katy Perry to Diana Agron, Willow Smith to Britney Spears and even Amanda Bynes' mug shot, everybody's thinking pink. Tell us if you like LC's new look below:

Reality star, fashion designer and best-selling novelist Lauren Conrad poses topless in the May issue of Glamour, revealing a beautiful body in white bikini bottoms. File this under:

  • Things You Didn't See Coming This Morning
  • Things That Should've Happened Years Ago

Ironically, Conrad admits she's normally shy about showing off her body, so much so that she doesn't even wear swimsuits to the beach. Modesty is overrated, LC:

Lauren Conrad Topless

"On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I'm just petrified," says the former star of The Hills.

"A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it personally. I haven't worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years."

Although the California native and author of The Fame Game (on sale today) isn't planning a return to reality TV, she does spill some secrets about it:

"During shooting, the producers would send us quick texts telling us what to talk about ... They couldn't walk through the shot so they'd just text me, like, 'Hey, say something quick about this story line.' That's why we were always checking our phones!"

Surprisingly brilliant, Hills.

Most people would be shocked to learn that Lauren Conrad of Laguna Beach and The Hills fame is a New York Times best-selling author, several times over.

Lauren Conrad is one of those people.

“We were doing the inside cover of the beauty book I’m working on, and under ‘also by’ it listed all my other books. I was like, ‘When did this happen?’”

Three years after she made her writing debut with the L.A. Candy series, she’s back on shelves with the first book in a new trilogy, The Fame Game.

In Love With Lauren

In stores tomorrow, it follows Heidi Montag-like character Madison Parker, another Audrina Patridge-like character, and two other Hollywood hopefuls.

As they star in a new spin-off series and adjust to life as reality TV stars, obvi.

There’s a soap opera’s-worth of drama, a fake-it-for-the-cameras relationship, and a whole lot of mascara-tears. How much of it did she pull from real life?

Quite a bit. The entertainment value in Conrad’s page-turners is about separating the moments based on LC’s behind-the-scene anecdotes from fiction.
