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.

Audrina Patridge's drunk mom tried to start $h!t, but Lauren Conrad says she's not in competition with Audrina. There's room for two reality shows to coexist!

There's been no comment from Audrina on her mom's drunken rant (for which she later apologized), during which Lynn Patridge called The Hills girls "tramps."

Lauren Conrad Curls

Regarding her new reality show, Lynn said her daughter would fare better than Lauren Conrad, whom she called a "b!tch" who does "frilly fashion $h!t."

Lauren Conrad says it's all good with Audrina.

Lauren doesn't see eye-to-eye with Lynn, fortunately, saying there's no bad blood whatsoever and that she doesn't view Audrina Patridge as competition.

LC's new reality show is also coming out soon.

Asked on Monday about Audrina's newly-picked up VH1 show, Conrad told Us, "I think it's good for her. And no, I really don't think about it like that at all."

Regarding the rant itself, LC smiled and said, "I really don't have a comment on that right now, thanks." Good to see someone knows how to keep it classy.

Lauren Conrad used to look great at Teen Vogue, when she worked there and The Hills filmed her life. Now she looks fabulous in the magazine as its cover girl!

On making a name in fashion, LC says that “I’ve sacrificed and worked very hard to get where I am now. I’ve been working every single day since I was 17."

"I’m also faced with a different set of challenges. I go to meetings, and people have this preconceived notion of me that I didn’t work hard to get where I am.”

Riding to Greatness

Lauren Conrad rides off with her pdog. And our hearts.

As for her former co-stars' paths' such as Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery and Jason Wahler joining Celebrity Rehab: “They’ve moved on to a different life now."

"Being on a show like that is a lot more than people think. You’re thrust into the spotlight. There’s all this pressure to act a certain way. It’s hard to adjust."

On her new reality show: “It’s going to be very different. I’m doing it on my own terms now. I get final editing approval. That was the only way I agreed."
