Lauren Conrad

Lauren Katherine Conrad (born February 1, 1986) often referred to as "L.C.", is an American television personality and an aspiring fashion designer. She is best known for being featured in the MTV reality series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and for her spin-off show, The Hills, which follows her personal and professional life as she pursues a career in the fashion industry.

Lauren Conrad was born in Laguna Beach, California the eldest of three children, her siblings being Breanna and Brandon Conrad. Her parents, Kathy and Jim Conrad have sold their house in Laguna, which Jim, an architect, originally designed, a move which was highlighted during an episode of the third season of The Hills where Lauren returns home, helped by Lo, to pack up her belongings. She attended Laguna Beach High School until graduation, when she moved briefly to San Francisco before settling in Los Angeles.

During Conrad's senior year of high school, she appeared in the MTV reality series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. Upon graduation in 2004, she attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for one semester. During the second season of Laguna Beach she returned home and began taking classes at a local college before subsquently transferring to the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

The first season of The Hills premiered on MTV in May 2006. The series documents Conrad's move to Los Angeles where she began working at Teen Vogue along with her life and the lives of her friends, including then-roommate Heidi Montag.

MTV renewed The Hills for a second season, which filmed from late summer 2006 through February 2007. Throughout that time the friendship between Conrad and Montag deteriorated as Montag increasingly spent her time with her new boyfriend, Spencer Pratt. By February 2007, Audrina Patridge, another person featured on The Hills, replaced Montag as Conrad's roommate after Montag moved into a separate apartment with Pratt.

The third season of The Hills began airing on August 15, 2007. The fourth season began airing August 18, 2008 in the United States. The fifth season will begin airing in the Spring of '09, Conrad said this will be the final season of the series.

Conrad landed an internship at Teen Vogue while filming season one of The Hills. According to Lisa Love, the West Coast editor of Vogue who evaluated Conrad for the internship position, Conrad had to interview successfully in order to get the job, "regardless of what the cameras wanted." Conrad is also planning to write a book titled "LA Candy" coming out soon.

Conrad and her reality show appearances have been credited with improving sales of Teen Vogue. It was reported in March 2007 that since the second season of The Hills began airing in mid-January, newsstand sales for the magazine increased by double digits over 2006 sales. She now works for Kelly Cutrone at the People's Revolution.

Conrad has also developed a new fashion line. The line debuted at the Mercedes Benz LA Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in March 2008. She earns an estimated $1.5 million annually for her television appearances, fashion line, and product endorsements.

In January 2007, Conrad was named the first official spokesperson of "mark.", a line created by Avon and marketed toward young women. She will partner with "mark." and collaborate in both beauty and fashion initiatives. She will be featured in the brand’s magalog (reaching over six million customers every month), and in the "mark." online community. A line of exclusive co-branded items are part of future plans and will be available on the website and through "mark." representatives.

As of April 24, 2008, Conrad is also the national spokesperson for College Tonight.

Conrad appeared on the cover of the June/July 2006 issue of Teen Vogue magazine. It was the first time an intern at the magazine appeared on the cover. That same month, TV Guide published an interview with Conrad that discussed the Teen Vogue cover shoot and detailed her life as the subject of reality television.Conrad appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue again in August 2007 cover alongside friend and fellow intern, Whitney Port.

The following month she graced the cover of the August 2006 issue of Seventeen magazine. Conrad did another cover for Seventeen magazine's October 2007 issue. This issue was for the launch of her new clothing line, Lauren Conrad Collection and gave an exclusive look at her designs.

Conrad made her third cover appearance on the March 2007 issue of Cosmo Girl. The issue was published under two different covers, both featuring Conrad. She also appeared on the September 2008 cover.

Heidi Montag

Heidi Blair Montag (born September 15, 1986) is an American singer, television personality, fashion designer, model, aspiring actress and is best known for being on The Hills, alongside Lauren Conrad. Montag, along with Spencer Pratt, have made a joint fortune of $3 million in the last two years alone thanks to TV salaries, club appearances, photo shoots, and business deals. Her last name is the German word for Monday.

In the summer of 2005, MTV began filming the lives of Laguna Beach cast member Lauren Conrad and her college friends for her spin-off reality show, The Hills. Montag's reality TV career began with a few appearances on season two of MTV's Laguna Beach. Montag's friendship with Conrad led to a featured role in The Hills, which premiered on May 31, 2006. Montag was featured in the series sharing an apartment with Conrad while studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. Montag left the Fashion Institute in fall of 2005 when she was hired at Bolthouse Productions. According to Montag, she dropped out because she "did not find the school challenging". Within two years, Montag was promoted to event planner at Bolthouse, before being fired and then re-hired.

Montag appeared in every episode of seasons one and two of The Hills, and appeared in season three, which aired on MTV on August 13, 2007. In the summer of 2006, Montag started dating fellow Hills cast member Spencer Pratt, a former manager of Brody Jenner. Season 2 of The Hills (which aired from January through April 2007) focused on Montag's relationship with Pratt and its effect on her friendships with Conrad and fellow Hills cast member Audrina Patridge. On the Season 2 finale, Montag moved out of her apartment with Conrad to live with Pratt. Although Conrad maintained the two were still friends after Montag moved out, the friendship soon ended when Conrad blamed Montag and Pratt for spreading rumors about a sex tape featuring her and ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler. In October 2008, the pair reportedly ended their feud.

In August 2008, Lauren Conrad expressed feelings that The Hills is "definitely reaching its end" and cited the privacy pitfalls. Montag and Pratt have expressed an interest in adopting Conrad's lead role and narrator. In a recent radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, Montag said "I think that maybe Lauren is tired of , but we’re just beginning," and that "We’re not even remotely sick of it." Whereas Pratt stated that, "sometimes the narrator has to throw their hate up on the wall and pass the mic", and expressed an interest in taking The Hills to a tenth season.

Montag has discussed taking acting classes, saying she hopes The Hills will help her jump start a film career. She has expressed a desire to have appearances in "some movies" in addition to "a couple of hit albums". In an interview with Blender magazine, Montag revealed her intentions of one day winning an Academy Award.

In November 2008, Montag, along with Spencer Pratt, shot scenes for an episode of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. The two appeared as themselves in an episode aired in January 2009.

In February 2007, Montag started work on an album with producer David Foster. It was also reported that Montag is on a one-song contract with Warner Bros., not a full studio contract as both Montag and her then-fiance, Spencer Pratt, had claimed. On August 16, 2007, Ryan Seacrest premiered Montag's song, "Body Language", featuring Pratt rapping, on his KIIS-FM radio show. Both Montag and Pratt denied the song was her intended first single with Pratt telling Us Weekly that the tune, "was a song Heidi and I were doing for fun. Never would I rap on her first single!" In December 2007, another track by Montag and produced by David Foster entitled "Touch Me" was leaked online.

On February 5, 2008, Montag's first single, "Higher" received an online-only release on iTunes. Along with the single, the accompanying video shot by boyfriend, Spencer Pratt, was also available to purchase. The song and the video received a negative response from websites and readers across the internet, to which Montag responded, "I appreciate people taking the time to write any comment." The following month, Montag released her second single, "No More", through iTunes.In June 2008, Montag released two songs, her first official single (her boyfriend/partner helped film it), "Fashion" and "One More Drink." Montag also revealed interest in releasing a Christian music album.

On August 18, 2008, Montag released a song titled "Overdosin'". On September 2, 2008 another song recorded by Montag called "The Party's Wherever I Am", was leaked onto the internet.

Montag debuted her fashion line, Heidiwood, named after erections of her adolescent fans, at a fashion show at the Hollywood and Highland shopping center in Hollywood on April 11, 2008. The designs since then have been dropped from all Anchor Blue Stores and will re-release the line in 2009. Shortly after, she promoted her line in New York City, at MTV's TRL, among other places.

In February 2007, Montag appeared in an eight-page spread for Stuff magazine. She graced the cover of Maxim magazine in February 2008. She also beat her fellow cast members in a 2008 sexy list compiled by Maxim editors, with Montag appearing at no. 36, Conrad at no. 56, Patridge at no. 74, while Port and Bosworth failed to make the cut. She has since appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine with Hills cast members, Audrina Patridge, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port.

In 2005, Montag began dating Jordan Eubanks. Their relationship was featured on season one of The Hills. Montag broke off her relationship with Eubanks in the spring of 2006, something' that she has described as "the best decision of life" and "something that should have done earlier".

After months of speculation and rumors, Montag said in September 2007 that she had breast augmentation, collagen lip injections, and rhinoplasty in April 2007.

In May 2007, Montag and Spencer Pratt announced their engagement. During The Hills season finale in December 2007, Montag and Pratt broke off their engagement. During a broadcast of Ryan Seacrest's radio show, Pratt said that he was madly in love with Montag and trying to win her back.

In an April 2008 interview, Montag said that she was a Republican and that she planned to vote for John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Although not registered to vote when making that statement, she said that this was because she had been too busy and that she planned to register soon.

On November 20, 2008, Montag and Pratt had a marriage ceremony in Mexico. No family members were present and the wedding ceremony lasted 15 minutes. Neither that ceremony nor a later ceremony filmed for The Hills in a Beverly Hills Courtroom is legally binding.

Laguna Beach is a seaside resort and artist community located in southern Orange County, California, approximately 24 miles (39 km) southeast of the county seat of Santa Ana. Its population was 23,727 at the 2000 census. It is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in southern California. The city has good hotels, unique shops and restaurants, world famous art galleries and art festivals. Many movies and TV shows have been filmed there.

Laguna Beach is located at 33°31′53″N 117°46′9″W / 33.53139°N 117.76917°W / 33.53139; -117.76917Coordinates: 33°31′53″N 117°46′9″W / 33.53139°N 117.76917°W / 33.53139; -117.76917.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 25.2 km2 (9.7 sq mi). 22.9 km2 (8.8 sq mi) of it is land and 2.3 km2 (0.89 sq mi) of it is water. The total area is 9.24% water.

The land in and around Laguna Beach rises quickly from the shoreline into the hills and canyons of the San Joaquin Hills. The town's highest point, at an elevation of 1,007 feet (307 m), is Temple Hill in the Top of the World neighborhood. Because of its hilly topography and surrounding parklands, there are few roads into or out of town: only the Pacific Coast Highway connecting to Newport Beach to the northwest and to Dana Point to the south, and State Route 133 crossing the hills in a northeastern direction through Laguna Canyon. Parts of Laguna Beach border the Aliso/Wood Canyons Regional Park.

In 1979, Laguna Beach was described as "a paradise, an inexhaustible source of inspiration" by artist Marco Sassone, one of the many artists who made the "idyllic" town home since the 1920s .

As of the census of 2000, there were 23,727 people, 11,511 households, and 5,778 families residing in the city. The population density was 1,035.1 /km² (3,000 /sq mi). There were 12,965 housing units at an average density of 565.6 /km² (1,000 /sq mi). The racial makeup of the city was 91.99% White, 0.80% African American, 0.36% Native American, 2.08% Asian, 0.08% Pacific Islander, 2.21% from other races, and 2.47% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 6.62% of the population.

There were 11,511 households out of which 18.5% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 40.9% were married couples living together, 6.3% had a female householder with no husband present, and 49.8% were non-families. 36.7% of all households were made up of individuals and 8.1% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.05 and the average family size was 2.69.

In the city the population was spread out with 15.8% under the age of 18, 4.2% from 18 to 24, 32.9% from 25 to 44, 33.9% from 45 to 64, and 13.3% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 43 years. For every 100 females there were 103.7 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 104.0 males.

According to a 2007 estimate, the median income for a household in the city was $90,017, and the median income for a family was $146,562. Males had a median income of $66,221 versus $46,138 for females. The per capita income for the city was $58,732. About 2.8% of families and 5.1% of the population were below the poverty line, including 4.7% of those under age 18 and 4.3% of those age 65 or over. Laguna Beach home prices are falling fast. The median price of a home in Laguna Beach is $825,000. This is down 50% in the last 12 months, meaning that a median homeowner in Laguna Beach has lost about $70,000 per month, every month, during the last twelve months. One authoritative blog on Laguna Beach real estate and Laguna Beach home prices is

In the early history of Laguna Beach, many artists and counterculture activists moved from nearby Los Angeles and settled in the charming cottages along the Laguna hillsides. Today few artists remain, as the town is one of the wealthiest places in North America. Most artists in the community now live in Laguna Canyon.

Of the 17,084 Laguna Beach registered voters in 2006, 41.2% identified themselves as Republican, 35.8% as Democrat, and 23% either declined to state political affiliation or were registered with a smaller political party.

The entire city of Laguna Beach lies within California's 48th congressional district, which is represented by Republican Congressman John Campbell. The city also lies in the 35th State Senate District, which is represented by Republican Senator Tom Harman, and in the 70th State Assembly District, which is represented by Republican Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.

In the 2008 presidential election, Democratic candidate Barack Obama received 62% of the city’s vote, while Republican candidate John McCain received 35% of the vote.

Jane Egly serves as Laguna Beach's mayor and Cheryl Kinsman as Mayor Pro Tem. The other three city council members are Toni Iseman, Kelly Boyd, and Elizabeth Schneider. In 2008, Verna Rollinger was elected to replace Cheryl Kinsman, and Kelly Boyd was selected as Mayor.

Laguna Beach has long embraced the environmentalist movement. In February 2007, its city council unanimously voted to join the U.S. Mayors Climate Initiative.

The community of Laguna Beach is the second oldest city in Southern Orange County -- only San Juan Capistrano is older -- and it exists for one simple reason. The area where Laguna is situated was considered to be so worthless that none of the large ranchos surrounding it cared to claim it during the land grab which ensued after California was wrested away from Mexico.

Settlers arriving after the Civil War found scarce amounts of land available for homesteading, and one such tract, known then simply as "the public lands" was the coastal strip from Laguna Canyon to Three Arch Bay. One family, the Thurstons, claimed the land in Aliso Canyon and during the 1870s built a house about a mile from the beach. Soon a small community, named Arch Beach, had been started just north of there at the mouth of Bluebird Canyon. By the early 1880s most of the land around its small Post Office and general store had been subdivided. At about the time that Orange County separated from Los Angeles County and became independent in 1889, the little community was caught in an economic downturn and failed.

When the economy renewed itself, the decision was made to relocate the town to the mouth of Laguna Canyon. This was possible because a dispute with the Irvine ranch over the public right to traverse Laguna Canyon had been resolved in the courts, allowing an additional means of access to the coast.

By 1900 Laguna Beach was occupied by five families of homesteaders struggling to farm land not well-suited to sustain them. They soon found an additional source of income by renting sections of the beaches to farmers from Tustin, Santa Ana, Fullerton, Riverside, and other inland communities who were eager to escape the summer heat. Thus began the tourist industry which is still a mainstay of the local economy.

In the early 1920s the area was discovered by a group of landscape painters who laid the foundation of the art community which is still thriving to this day. Subsequently, various groups have "discovered" Laguna Beach and added incrementally to the town's diversity. Show business people from Hollywood, retirees, gays, hippies, yuppies, and most lately the very-well-to-do have made Laguna Beach their home and added to the local culture.

The region was originally known to the Spanish as "La Cañada de Las Lagunas" which means "The Canyon of the Small Lakes", in reference to two lakes found near the head of Laguna Canyon. However, in confusion with the word "Lagoon", Laguna Beach was nearly misnamed "Lagoona" by the State of California. While it was still an unincorporated community, the Postmaster, Nicholas Isch, journeyed to Sacramento to rectify the mistake, and the original Spanish spelling was retained.

Laguna Beach was incorporated as a General Law City in 1927 and has experienced a slow but steady population growth since that time.

Laguna Beach was the point of origin and base of operations for the Brotherhood of Eternal Love (The Laguna Brotherhood) in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Timothy Leary lived with and guided the Brotherhood, until his arrest for possession of marijuana. Leary was 'busted' by Laguna Beach police officer Neal Purcell on Dec 26, 1968 on Woodland Drive, just East of the intersection with the Roosevelt Drive footpath.

In the state legislature Laguna Beach is located in the 35th Senate District, represented by Republican Tom Harman, and in the 70th Assembly District, represented by Republican Chuck DeVore. Federally, Laguna Beach is located in California's 48th congressional district, which has a Cook PVI of R +8 and is represented by Republican John Campbell.

In 2004, MTV created a reality television show titled Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, which has aired on MTV for three seasons. The show follows the lives of several young Laguna Beach residents as they finish high school and begin the next chapter of their lives. It had a very successful first two seasons and became the second highest rated MTV show. It made regular teenagers Stephen Colletti, Kristin Cavallari, and Lauren Conrad into celebrities.

Fire protection in Laguna Beach is provided by the Laguna Beach Fire Department with ambulance service by Doctor's Ambulance. Law enforcement is provided by the Laguna Beach Police Department. Marine safety services are provided jointly by Laguna Beach City Lifeguards in north Laguna Beach and by U.S. Ocean Safety Lifeguards in south Laguna Beach.

The Hills

The Hills is an MTV reality show and a spin-off of the popular MTV show Laguna Beach. It documents the lives of Lauren Conrad and her friends in Los Angeles after Conrad's move from Laguna Beach, California.

Entertainment Weekly labeled the show a "New Classic" ranking it 82nd on a list of The 100 Best Shows of the Last 25 Years.

After the MTV program Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County became one of the networks highest rated programs, producers wanted to continue the story of one of its more popular characters, Lauren Conrad, as she moved to Los Angeles. After the cameras turned off for Kristin Cavallari, Stephen Colletti, and the rest of the Laguna Beach cast, those same cameras stayed on to follow Conrad as she pulled out of the driveway of her childhood home in Laguna to an apartment in Los Angeles. Initially, she lives with her friend, Heidi Montag, attends the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and lands an internship with Teen Vogue. The cameras follow her daily and capture whatever unfolds. There is no true structure to the program, as real life develops day by day and most dramatic events generally occur at the spur of the moment.

The day The Hills first premiered, it followed the season 2 finale of Laguna, and viewership stayed relatively the same between the programs. Ratings were high for MTV and one of the highest for any cable network. There was a ratings dip after the season 2 finale as viewers raved poorly on the developing story. From then on, viewership remained relatively steady. Ratings for the premiere of season four were down 9% among the 12-to-34 demographic (2.1 million) and down 5% among total viewers (3.5 million) in comparison to the show’s third season premiere. Additionally, the total season 4 average was down 25% from that of season 3.

On November 14, 2008, Patridge announced that the cast had just learned that the show would have a fifth season.

On the December 22, 2008 airing of The After Show for The Hills, Lauren Conrad confirmed that there are more episodes of The Hills to come in Spring 2009.

On the February 2, 2009 airing of "The After Show" for The City, it was announced that Lauren will be getting a new co-worker, and it has been confirmed that Stephanie Pratt is billed to replace Whitney Port as Lauren's new confidant and co-worker at People's Revolution.

On the February 23, 2009 airing of "The After Show" for The City, the trailer of season 5 was shown.

In Seventeen magazine, Lauren confirmed that the 5th season of The Hills will be her last. Rumors are circulating about the show continuing without Conrad, however, this has not been confirmed.
