Lauren Conrad: The Hills Wasn't "Dishonest"
How "unwritten" were the breakups, feuds and fights on The Hills?
If you ask Lauren Conrad, the MTV reality series that made her a household name wasn't as fake as many have assumed.
"I think the story they told wasn't a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was," the Paper Crown designer, 26, tells the November issue of Allure.
Clarifies Conrad, who shared her messy love life and equally complicated friendships on the series from 2006 and 2009 (the series was itself a spinoff of Laguna Beach, on which Conrad also starred).
"[The cameras] aren't going to be there for everything. Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that's important to the story line," the author continues. "The [producers] need that reenacted. Their thing was always: It did happen. They're not making this up: you just didn't see it."
One of those legit storylines included Conrad's romance with costar Brody Jenner. "Brody and I did date," she says of Jenner, 29. "It was pretty brief. There was definitely editing to drag it out."
"You don't want a slob, but you don't want a guy whose constantly borrowing your tweezers," she says of L.A. men. "The last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it's slim pickings."
The star also opens up about her anti-fans -- i.e., her haters.
"People felt that a lot of the things I had were undeserved, maybe because I didn't have a specific talent; I was more of a regular girl and maybe didn't deserve the attention," she says. "I think anyone in the public eye is going to be hated, and a lesson that I needed to learn quickly is that it is impossible to please everybody. One person will call you classy, and another will call you boring."
The November issue of Allure is on sale Oct. 23.
