Lauren Conrad always had her eye on the big picture.

Ten years ago, as a teenage member of the Laguna Beach cast, she likely had no idea the stardom she would attain through the show and its spinoff, The Hills.

What she did know is where she saw herself in 10 years, a milestone the MTV show has reached as of this week. It turns out, LC was eerily prescient ...

“Hopefully living in this area, probably married and doing something that makes me happy,” Lauren mused, asked where she envisioned herself in 2014.

That was 2004, and boy has she achieved that dream.

The blonde beauty just bought a beach abode in her small California hometown, returning to her roots (she also has places in L.A. and in Beverly Hills).

Not only that, Lauren Conrad married William Tell earlier this month, tying the knot with the love of her life in a romantic ceremony for the ages.

Laguna Beach premiered 10 years ago Sunday, September 28, introducing us to the world of Lauren Conrad, Stephen Colletti, Kristin Cavallari and company.

The TV world was never the same, and we're not even being facetious.

Nestled in Orange County, Laguna Beach was inspired by the small town of that name as MTV's real-life take on The O.C., which had just premiered on FOX.

What transpired was a reality TV first. The show simply followed the lives of the young, rich high schoolers, rather than putting them in scripted situations.

That came later on The Hills, but that's a topic for another time.

Laguna was purer, in a sense. No scripts, no confessionals, no new people cast as love interests. Just love, emotion, drama and Hilary Duff’s “Coming Clean.”

Neither The Hills, The City or any other show has accurately recorded of a group of young people coming of age, or document a love triangle quite like this.

After The Hills and Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad married William Tell Saturday, she heard from an unexpected old friend from back in the day:

Heidi Montag.

The wife of Spencer Pratt reached out to her friend slash frenemy via social media, offering her heartfelt and mispelled well wishes on this magical day.

"Congratulation @LaurenConrad on finding true love and your soul mate! Sending you love and blessings! The best is yet to come! Love you," she tweeted.

  • Whoa! Never Saw That Coming!
  • Lauren Conrad Earthly Bohemian

The two famously feuded on their hit MTV reality series, but have let bygones be bygones by now. Or at least one half of the former BFF duo has.

Lauren's feelings toward Speidi are far less clear at this point.

Montag, who may or may not have been invited to the nuptials, did not attend them ... because she was busy offering her services at another wedding.

Her sister Holly Montag married her fiance Richie Wilson!

For Lauren Conrad, the hills are now alive with the sound of wedding bells.

That's right, the former MTV reality star is married!

LC and William Tell exchanged vows on Saturday in an intimate California ceremony, insiders confirm to Us Weekly. They were surrounded by close friends and family members.

"What a perfect way to start our lives together; surrounded by the people we love most," Conrad and Tell said via statement.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag shared the story of their rise and fall from fame in an E! special Monday, and there were some interesting revelations.

From 2006-2010, "Speidi" became household names, starring on MTV's The Hills as the villains to Lauren Conrad's nice girl on the Laguna Beach spinoff.

Now they're nearly broke, having blown through $10 million, they revealed on After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, although their marriage has stayed strong.

Spencer Pratt, 30, and Heidi Montag, 27, certainly have a story that's unique.

"I regret playing the villain so hard with not saving my money," he told E! "I would be laughing all the way to the bank being a hated multimillionaire right now."

Lauren Conrad is going from The Hills to the altar.

Oh yes, the former reality star is engaged!

Conrad made the exciting announcement herself today via blog, writing to fans: "I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend."

"I am beyond thrilled!"

The Laguna Beach native, 27, included along with her message a pic of her diamond ring, which is anything but small (check it out after the jump).

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."

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.

"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.

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