Lauren Conrad has gone back to blonde. She told Chelsea Handler on E!’s Chelsea Lately that it's because of a poll she ran on her website to let fans decide.

“I did a poll on my website I just launched, of whether I should stay brown or go blonde, and blonde won,” she said, although she doesn't look blonde.

Conrad went on to explain that her newly dyed locks - a blend of different colors - were meant to emulate "surfer-girl hair." Chelsea was a bit envious:

Wearing a dress from her Paper Crown holiday collection, Conrad revealed that she’s currently writing the first in her second series of three books.

LC also discussed MTV's decision not to air her new reality show, which got Handler going on 16 and Pregnant, the Kardashians and so on.

Despite having a job at E!, Chelsea has no qualms about shredding some of the network's other stars ... or whomever else she wants. It's great.

Looking beautiful as ever and wearing a blazer from her new clothing line, Paper Crown, Lauren Conrad covers Lucky magazine’s July 2011 issue.

With her new reality show was turned down by MTV, the former star of The Hills began focusing exclusively on her first love these days - fashion.

Here's what she had to say about it:

On launching Paper Crown sans MTV: “It’s easier to launch the line without MTV. 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 negged her show: “It didn’t feel like a perfect fit."

"It’s difficult to compete with the Jersey Shore-type shows out there. Besides, there weren’t any scenes of me getting drunk or fighting, so what’s the point?”

Lauren Conrad is launching a site called The Beauty Department. She certainly knows a thing or two about that department, so it sounds like a nice fit.

TheBeautyDepartment (dot) com is a collaboration between the former star of The Hills, her hairstylist and makeup artist, Kristen Ess and Amy Nadine.

After the news broke this February about her new reality show getting the boot, it's nice to see that LC has taken her expertise to a different medium.

Don't take it from us. We <3 the girl! That's what Lauren Conrad, always more grounded and serious than given credit for, says about herself in Allure.

“They called me “reality show talent” and I’m like, ‘What’s my talent?’” deadpans the budding fashion designer and author, who also denies she's sexy.

“I’m not a sexy person. I’m OK with it. I’ve never been a sexy girl," she says. "Whenever I’ve had a boyfriend, he’s always been like, ‘Oh, you’re cute.”

Okay maybe. But we'd say ridiculously cute at least ...

These days, she's over The Hills and is content living a private life as a successful businesswoman, designing clothes for Kohl's and her new line, Paper Crown.

More than ever, LC's trying hard to keep her romantic relationship (with actor Kyle Howard) off-camera. For that, we can only respect Lauren Conrad more.

Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad are so in a fight. Unfortunately, it was not caught on tape, nor does is it involve any pajamas and pillows.

Though close pals on The Hills, the two have gone their separate ways.

Why!?! "Whitney is upset because she thinks that The City was canceled to make room for Lauren's new reality show," a source tells Us.

  • Former Hills Legend

"Whitney feels like she got the shaft," from LC, insiders say.

If that's true, it's ironic, as Conrad's latest MTV reality venture was scrapped as well after the network deemed it too high brow for its current lineup.

Basically, Jersey Shore brings in the ratings and the network thinks the former Hills duo is apparently too boring, or at least their fashion careers are.

Either way, Whit skipped Lauren's birthday party. Make of that what you will!

Last fall, MTV decided to bring back The Hills and Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad for a new reality series focused on the young star’s burgeoning fashion line.

Yesterday, in a bit of a surprise, Conrad's series was passed on by the network.

So Many Choices

“We decided not to go ahead with the show,” Head of Programming David Janollari said. "It was a great attempt but just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us."

Lauren Conrad personally explained why that is in a statement to EW ...

“We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life."

"We agreed going in that this would be an aspirational show, focusing on my career and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”

Conrad says the series was more a documentary than a glossy soap like The Hills. Interesting that she walked, rather than put her personal life back on display.

Basically, Jersey Shore is the new MTV flagship and this didn't fit the bill. Are you disappointed they nixed LC's show? Or did it sound boring anyway?

There's a rumor going around that Lauren Conrad is engaged to longtime love Kyle Howard. The star's reps have already come out and denied this. It's not true.

It is her 25th birthday today, however. Happy birthday, LC!

While she became famous because MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills, the California girl is a bit of an anomaly, seeking LESS attention and bowing out on her terms.

Waving to LC

Choosing to focus on her personal life and branch out career-wise, Lauren left the show that made her a star and has lived largely under the radar for 18 months.

She did top the N.Y. Times Bestseller List and boost her credentials as a celebrity fashion designer, though, and may return to reality TV soon in some capacity.

When she does, it will again be on her terms.
