Heidi Montag wants to get in touch with her inner nature girl again. She also longs for her old BFF back, and nostalgically watches repeats of The Hills.

The plastic princess, who was inexplicably booted off the show in its final season and recently filed for divorce from Spencer Pratt, is lost these days.

Assault Weapons Ban

Her family and what few friends she has left can't get in touch with her, and she's been oddly absent from her beloved celebrity sites' photo galleries.

What's she been up to?

"Watching old Hills [episodes]," the 'Tag Tweeted at two of her former MTV co-stars. "I miss you @AudrinaPatridge and most of all @laurenconrad."

Neither Audrina Patridge nor Lauren Conrad responded to the Tweets.

LC & HEIDI: Many moons and plastic surgeries ago.

Former roommates and best friends, Heidi Montag and Conrad's relationship famously cooled thanks to controlling boyfriend-turned husband Pratt.

LC accused the gruesome twosome of leaking a rumor about a sex tape starring herself and Jason Wahler. When Heidi Montag attempted to mend fences with her, Conrad brushed her off, quipping, "I want to forgive you - and forget you."

Might they rekindle their friendship now that he's out of the picture? We wouldn't count on it, but separating from King Spencer can only help the cause.

Citing irreconcilable differences, Montag filed for divorce from the mountain man in Santa Monica, Calif. Spencer Pratt didn't seem too sad, saying:

"Well, some say if you can't handle the heat get out of the kitchen. Heidi couldn't handle King Spencer's fame so she got out of the marriage."

Lauren Conrad is ready to re-enter the fashion scene.

After halting production of her first clothing line last year amidst the recession and a bleak retail landscape, LC has a new contemporary collection underway.

With the affordable Lauren Conrad Collection already being sold at Kohl’s, the former star of The Hills is starting a new line with several of her best friends.

“It’s a contemporary women’s line,” she said. “Where Kohl’s is a lot of daywear, it’s a lot of basics. This will be more specialty basics, more of a boutique line."

"It will be at a higher price point. It will be very different.”

Lauren Conrad's California style is a hit with teens and adults alike.

While the 24-year-old said her new collection is just getting started, but she can’t contain her excitement when it comes to working on a line all on her own.

“It’s one thing to work with a huge retailer like Kohl’s and there is so much you get to do, but there is a little more of a thrill of doing it yourself,” she said.

With greater responsibility and pressure comes greater reward, a fact that the budding designer is somewhat intimidated by, but mostly excited about.

Adds LC, who's also planning a new novel series, “It’s a lot more work, and it’s more stressful, but it’s something I love doing so I’m looking forward to it.”

So are we. Way to go, LC!

Lauren Conrad is going rogue.

The L.A. Candy author says that for her next work of literary mastery, she's planning a darker spinoff of sorts featuring one of her current characters.

"I'm going to take Madison from the book and do a darker series," she said at The Hills finale party. "I already wrote a little bit and it was really fun."

L.A. Candy focuses on Jane Roberts, a young woman who moves to Hollywood, gets a job with an event planner and eventually lands a reality show.

That all sounds vaguely familiar ...

For Lauren Conrad, L.A. Candy is art imitating life. Or The Hills.

Like LC, Jane isn't always happy with her fame and the attention it brings, while her friend Madison takes the opposite approach and just eats it up.

Again, feels like we've heard this somewhere.

"I think it would be really fun to do it the other way, with someone who loves it," Conrad said. "Someone who loves fame and plays the game well."

She certainly has enough real-life material to draw on.

Lauren is still working on the third book in the Candy series, but we're already looking forward to reading the exploits of crazy Heidi Montag ... er, Madison.

Given their history, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad may never be BFFs. But The Hills stars aren't exactly feuding, either. The two are "cool," Kristin says.

The two Laguna Beach beauties famously dated the same guy, Stephen Colletti, on the hit MTV reality show that spawned The Hills, which starred Conrad.

In a hilariously contrived move, Cavallari replaced LC as the protagonist and "narrator" of the series in 2009, when she decided to leave after five seasons.

Following The Hills series finale this week, the two reunited along with the whole cast, past and present, at the live after-show bash at the Roosevelt Hotel.

Despite what some think, the two don't hate each other at all.

A rare joint Lauren Conrad-Kristin Cavallari photo op!

"I saw her at the wrap party on Saturday and we caught up," Cavallari said at the after-show party, explaining that they're now cordial, but that's about it.

"We are not going to lunch together and I don’t have her phone number, but we are cool," adds Cavallari of Conrad, who's kept a low profile this past year.

Both girls also dated Brody Jenner at some point.

Speaking of that guy, whose fake relationship with Kristin was a primary, bogus story line this season, he's now with Avril Lavigne - but still close to Kristin.

"Our friendship is the most important thing and I don't think that anything will ever get in the way of that," says Cavallari, who's dating Miguel Medina.

Nice to see Kristin and LC on good terms. But if you had to pick ...

The entire cast of The Hills, minus the vanquished Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, but including alumni Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, commemorated the hit MTV series' final episode Tuesday night with one last bash in Hollywood.

So much has changed between The Hills finale and what began as a Laguna Beach spinoff 102 episodes ago. But it was great to see LC back, since she started it all.

On hand were the likes of Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and Audrina Patridge, along with bit players Justin-Bobby, Lo, Stephanie, that Stacie girl and many more.

Lauren Conrad is finally returning to The Hills ... right after it ends.

One week from tonight, the girl who made the MTV reality show a hit will be on hand for the Live Reunion Show after the now-sagging series mercifully goes off the air.

Lauren Conrad Smiles in Blue

The reunion will immediately follow the series finale of The Hills and the season finale of The City. Whitney Port reported the LC news, as well as her own attendance:

"I am so happy to tell you all that I will be attending the reunion, as will Lauren!" Whitney wrote on her official site. "I am so excited to see everyone and catch up."

"I am so excited to see what's next for them," the former Hills star and current City leading lady continued. "It's been so long since we have all been together."

REUNITED: For one night and one night only, next Tuesday.

What remains unclear is whether Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, exiled from the show in recent weeks without notice, will appear between now and July 13.

The gruesome twosome was featured prominently in the first part of this season, but then Spencer went haywire, they supposedly broke up in real life, etc.

It's not clear why, but there has been no explanation of their vanishing from the series. Tonight, the penultimate episode of The Hills airs, followed by The City.

The former will likely focus on Kristin and Audrina's predictably boring romantic drama. Sigh. We can only hope Speidi returns to liven things up one last time.

Body By Milk has been doing its iconic "Got Milk?" mustache campaign for what seems like decades. Miley Cyrus may or may not wear underwear, but she definitely wore the milk mustache recently, as have stars such as Usher and Taylor Swift.

The latest to receive the 'stache is Lauren Conrad, former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills. We've really missed her on the latter, especially lately.

All the more reason we were happy to see her wearing a belted navy blue dress and her signature curled hair - glass of milk in hand of course:

GOT LC? Body By Milk does. We're a little jealous of that glass.

The Californian revealed her national Milk Mustache ad at The Grove yesterday, after the 24-year-old fashionista’s ad was selected by fans via online voting!

Speaking of online votes, even though she hasn’t been on The Hills this season, LC is somehow up for Female Reality Star at the Teen Choice Awards. Woo!

In any case, she'd win our vote - for reality star or beverage spokeswoman. Click to enlarge lots of Lauren Conrad pictures from her new milk campaign ...

We cover a lot of celebrity fashion all-stars, but if you had to pick a star to emulate, you can't go wrong incorporating elements of Lauren Conrad's summer style.

Not only can she dress for any occasion, her basic philosophies on accessories (sunscreen is #1) and makeup (less is more) are brilliant in their simplicity.

Contrast that with Heidi Montag and her ilk, or even to a lesser extreme, the many celebrities who feel they need to lather on layer upon layer of makeup 24/7.

Rather than the bimbo route, take your cues from a girl who knows how to do more with less, but still manages to look stylish in a wide variety of looks ...

SoCal native Lauren Conrad knows how to dress for summer.

She's a natural beauty, that's for certain. For more on the former Hills star's many warm-weather looks, click to enlarge tons more Lauren Conrad pictures ...

The Hills returns tonight for its final season ... most likely. It could be extended a bit. Regardless, here's a look back at some moments that defined its first five:

FORGET PARIS: In the first season finale, Lauren Conrad made a brutal mistake that would haunt her for two more years, choosing to spend the summer with tool Jason Wahler over accompanying Teen Vogue editor Lisa Love to Paris.

Bearded

Fortunately, Whitney Port stepped in and fast-tracked her fashion career. Not that LC is hurting for cash, or boyfriends. Kyle Howard's a big upgrade over J-Wahl.

FALLING DOWN: As a Teen Vogue intern, Whitney endeared herself to millions after what could have been her worst moment, falling on stage after Vogue tapped her to model Hilary Swank's Oscar gown on Good Morning America.

The way she composed herself and handled the embarrassment with grace and dignity only impressed the higher-ups more, though (sorry to rehash this, Whit).

Two prominent former loves of Lauren Conrad.

THE LC SEX TAPE: It did not exist, but boy, did it spark a lot of celebrity gossip. Spencer Pratt (and in turn, THG) got so much mileage out of this twisted rumor.

BABY MAMA DRAMA: More than once, Heidi Montag has effed with Spencer regarding pregnancy. All a big hoax to watch him squirm? We're all for it even if so.

KISSING BRODY J: Everybody does it at some point, but Lauren and he had such chemistry. Still, despite the Las Vegas birthday hookup, Brody Jenner and Conrad determined they work better as friends, which they've remained since.

THE TRANSFORMATION OF HEIDI MONTAG'S FACE: Enough said, and ongoing.

WORSE THAN HEIDI: LC accused Audrina Patridge of insinuating she hooked up with Justin-Bobby - and that Audzo is worse than Heidi Montag as a result.

A shot from Heidi and Spencer's wedding - the non-staged version.

CAREER EVOLUTION: The show began with a focus on young women and careers in L.A., then became about quasi-celebs whose careers were being on The Hills.

THE WEDDING: Heidi and Spencer's wedding had something old, new, borrowed and even blue ... the dresses worn by both Lauren Conrad and her old nemesis, Kristin Cavallari, who replaced her as the star of the show. Cold, MTV. Cold.

F*%KING PIRANHAS: Kristin didn't wait long to stir up trouble, calling out Audrina and Stephanie Pratt and declaring "you f*%ked with the WRONG girl."

GROSS LOVE TRIANGLE: On a list of things we didn't need to spend a full season watching, Kristin and Audrina fighting over Justin-Bobby would be tops.

Lauren Conrad returning to The Hills is a long shot at best.

But that doesn't mean fans wouldn't love it, former bosses aren't advocating it and the show's producers aren't trying to figure out some plan for it.

"The show gave her a great run," Teen Vogue editor Lisa Love, who managed LC and Whitney Port, said at Diego Della Valle's MOCA fundraiser.

"She should definitely come back for the series finale."

The Hills creator Adam DiVello, in the news this week after being accused of harassing Heidi Montag (a claim MTV and Lauren Conrad deny), is up for it.

In fact, he's already been thinking of the ideal scenario.

Lauren Conrad's signature expressions made The Hills a hit.

Conrad's final appearance on the show came during Speidi's wedding, when she was officially replaced as the leading lady by Kristin Cavallari.

MTV would love to film her at another wedding - her own.

DiVello says his dream is to have Lauren walk down the aisle in the last episode, but clearly that's not happening, unless Kyle Howard already proposed and the show is prepared to pull off a huge surprise this summer.

Doubtful. But, "It'd be fun if Lauren and I caught up in Paris," Love said. "I think they could find a way to make it work with her coming back."

You can bet your bottom dollar they'll at least try. Follow the link to check out the final season trailer for The Hills spoilers and teasers galore.
