Public Appearances > Kohl’s LC Lauren Conrad Redesigned Denim Presentation (August 8, 2018)
When Lauren Conrad decided to leave her era-defining MTV series, The Hills, in 2009, she got a lot of pushback. One person who was unequivocally in Conrad’s corner, however, was her mother. Not only was the elder Conrad supportive, but she also apparently has a knack for predicting business success: Her daughter’s pivot from reality(-ish) TV to lifestyle brand owner was a huge hit.
In the intervening years, Lauren Conrad has had a hand in everything from clothing lines to books, cultivating a uniform aesthetic along the way. More recently, she has focused on the nonprofit she founded with best friend Hannah Skvarla, The Little Market. The women-empowering company works with female artisans all over the world, especially in areas where women have more restricted rights, to help them sell their wares, which range from handbags and accessories to home goods and baby gear. It’s a business model Conrad could better appreciate after hitting a recent milestone in life.

MTV is reportedly thinking about a “Hills” reboot.
The show was a spin-off of “Laguna Beach.”
If it were to be brought back, star Lauren Conrad would reportedly not return.
“The Hills” might be coming back to MTV, but there’s one sad catch. Sources told Us Weekly that MTV is considering a “Hills” reboot without the show’s star, Lauren Conrad. “The rest of the crew is all still friends besides her,” one source said. “Everyone else is down to do it.”
The hit reality show, which aired from 2006 to 2010, was a spin-off of “Laguna Beach” and followed Conrad as she pursued a fashion career. It chronicled her life and relationship with friends Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Lo Bosworth, and Heidi Montag as the crew partied, worked, and dated in Los Angeles. Conrad and Montag famously had a falling out due to Montag’s now-husband Spencer Pratt. It was filled with dramatic fights and memorable quotes, like Conrad’s iconic “homeboy wore combat boots to the beach” line when Justin Bobby ditched Patridge.
But Conrad eventually left in the middle of season five to pursue her career. Her former “Laguna Beach” co-star Kristin Cavallari replaced her for season six. Without Conrad, the show was quickly canceled. Patridge and Port both told Us that they’d be willing to reunite. “I’m not opposed to it,” Patridge said. “It would really depend on what it was going to be. So, we’ll see.” Port admitted that it would be “hard” but “it’d definitely be something fun.”
Conrad has since gone on to become a successful fashion designer and lifestyle blogger.
