No, this isn't an article from 2007 that we misfiled.

The Hills and Laguna Beach alum Jason Wahler, whose DUI arrests, fights and stints in rehab kept us busy for several years, says he's a changed man.

As such, "I wanted to make amends with Lauren [Conrad]," he tells People. "She was a big part of my life and there's stuff that I needed to address."

Now 24 and sober for over a year, Wahler currently works in Costa Mesa, Calif., at National Therapeutic Services as a mentor and sober companion.

"It feels good to give back," says Wahler, who recently completed Celebrity Rehab, and contacted Lauren Conrad after feeling comfortable in recovery.

"She's an incredible person and so supportive of anything I do to stay clean," he says. "But the timing had to be right before I reached back out."

Is Lauren Conrad moving on from Kyle Howard?

A source tells Us Weekly that the former star of The Hills and current author / fashion designer is "enamored" with Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes.

Apparently it's mutual. The two shared a table at the HTC Status phone launch on July 20, and sources say there was a "flirty energy" in the air.

While an LC insider says "they are friends and have known each other forever," a witness is more affirmative: "She was into him, and vice versa."

"They went to a club afterward."

Haynes actually appeared on two episodes of The Hills when Conrad interned at Teen Vogue, so there's a history there. But there's a catch ...

A source says Conrad still speaks every day with Kyle Howard, who she split up with after three years, in May: "They may get back together."

Three year of blissful dating came to an end last week, as Lauren Conrad and Kyle Howard shocked the celebrity gossip world by breaking up.

What happened?!?

"He saw the relationship as distracting from his goal of being the next Robert De Niro," an insider says in the latest issue of Us Weekly. "He wasn't supportive of her career."

With an upcoming role on Royal Pains, and a critically-beloved turn on My Boys, Howard does have a bright acting career in front of him. He reportedly felt like LC's reality star roots weren't an appropriate fit.

"All of her friends can count on one hand the amount of times they've seen him," said a source, adding that "Lauren is heartbroken... She wants to be married and have kids."

Lauren Conrad and Kyle Howard have broken up after three years of dating.

People confirmed the split late Friday, though neither party has commented.

The former reality star, 25, and actor, 33, deliberately kept their romance far away from cameras. But they have been spotted out and about all over Hollywood since they began dating in 2008 and never seemed anything but happy.

It's sad news, obviously, whenever a good relationship ends. But another will come along. When one door closes, another opens.

Remember, LC, today is when your book begins. The rest is still unwritten.

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.

Mya Fashion Choice

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.

Beautiful Lauren C.

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 ...

  • We <3 You Lauren Conrad
  • Behind the Scenes With Lauren Conrad

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.

  • Prettiest Port
  • 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?

Lauren Conrad Quotes

Someone with a great sense of humor is the most important thing, and someone who really supports me in everything I do... I don’t ever want to make an excuse for trying to work hard and having my own life. I love a guy that supports that and loves that.

Lauren Conrad [on men]

I don’t feel girly without long hair! There is something so sexy about having long blonde hair. It’s so feminine.
