Playing for charity on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire last week, The Hills star and best-selling author Lauren Conrad proved she was up to the trivia test.

Appropriately, she was given a celebrity gossip question.

After she correctly identified the name of Prince William’s girlfriend (Kate Middleton), LC’s new foundation became $25,000 richer. What can’t she do?

Sure, this wasn’t the toughest mental task in history, but nor is making change for $7.50, which flummoxed Everybody Loves Raymond‘s Patricia Heaton.

Heaton received a number cruncher that had fourth-graders watching at home howling at the screen: “If a Euro is worth $1.50, five Euros is worth what?”

Her choices: 30 quarters, 50 dimes, 70 nickels or 90 pennies. Too hard, apparently. Lauren Conrad would’ve nailed this in about 10 seconds, we’d guess.

“I don’t know, I have no idea,” she said, and immediately elected to use the lifeline of calling her husband because he’s European … and he was no use.

Host Regis Philbin finally walked Heaton through the question and, through process of elimination and a few rounds of applause, they got the answer.
