FormerHillsstar, Lauren Conrad has moved on to bigger and better things. Lauren is now working on a movie deal for her debut book L.A. Candy, whichhas been on the New York Times bestseller list for the past 14 weeks, since its release in June.
Similar to Lauren’s life, L.A Candy follows a 19-year-old girl, Jane Roberts who relocates to Hollywood and becomes a famous reality star.
“Lauren, who became an icon in that reality show world, came to us with a structure of how to tell the story in an interesting fashion that was separate and apart from the book,” Temple Hill producer Marty Bowensaid. “We loved her take. Her book is an honest portrayal of what it must be like to set out to be normal, then sign on to become famous and eventually realize, wow, this isn’t at all what I’d planned for myself.”
According to PEOPLE, Lauren has no plans to act in the movie. She also plans to write two more books in the series and will serve as the movie’s executive producer.
Kristin managed to rub practically everyone the wrong way. The biggest conflict came when Kristin faced off against Audrina Patridge, who accused her of going after her on-and-off fling Justin Bobby.
In a new interview with USWeekly, Kristin dishes on Audrina and what she thought of the sixth season’s premiere episode. “I think that Audrina and Stephanie [Pratt] were very judgmental and just wrote me off right away without getting to know me,” Cavallari, 22, said on Tuesday at an event in West Hollywood.
Kristin however played coy on her reasons for going after Audrina’s ex, Justin Bobby, saying — “You’ll have to see it on the show” — revealing “the love triangle” gets “pretty dramatic” as the season progresses.
Something tells us Kristin went after Justin Bobby because the Hills’ script called for it. Kristin also manages to get a swipe in against Audrina when asked about what she thought of Audrina’s appearance, “I’m not commenting on her plastic surgery,” laughed Kristin.
It seemsKristin Cavallarihas good reason for joining the cast The Hills. 90,000 ones to be exact as a new report reveals she earns a whooping $90,000 per episode!
Kristin’s $90,000 per episode is however $10,000 less than what her co-stars Audrina Patridge, 24, and Lauren “Lo” Bosworth, 22, earn, as each rakes in $100,000.
As for the rest of the cast, Heidi Montag, 23, nets $100,000 an episode, while her douchebag husband, Spencer Pratt, 26, gets $65,000 an episode. They are both however able to make up to $30,000 for personal appearances. The article also states Heidi earned $375,000 for her recent Playboy September cover shoot, despite the fact that she didn’t take it all off.
Lauren Conrad, who is no longer on the show reportedly earned a whopping $125,000 per episode during her heyday. Her deal stipulated that no other star’s salary could match hers. Brody Jenner earns the least at $45,000 a show.
The same report states the stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives series receive a reported $30,000 a show, though some other reports claim it’s $100,000 per season. The new season of the Hills premiers Tuesday, September 29th.
Audrina however denies this report, saying “They offered me a presenting spot and I declined.”
And what does Kristin think of her new promo proclaiming her devilishly laughing in front of a sign that proclaims, “The Bitch Is Back”?
“It’s fun to play the bad girl on TV,” Kristin says. “I think it’s really funny because anyone who knows me, my good friends, would never say I’m a man-eater, a boyfriend-stealer like they’re making me out to be.”
Kristin however admits she is not friends with Audrina, “We literally just don’t see each other,” she toldUS. “I don’t have a problem with her. If she has a problem with me, that’s a whole other story.”
Kristin— who made her reality show debut at age 16 on MTV’s Laguna Beach — also says it’s fun to be back in front of the cameras.
“It’s been such a great experience for me and brought me so many opportunities,” says Kristin. “I definitely have a personal life. I only film three days a week, so I don’t put my real friends on camera because it will ruin friendships.”
Is this really going to be your last season on The Hills? Why? You know, it’s just something that I felt inside. I’m an adult now, and I don’t need all the petty drama and drinking and fighting. I’ve done that, and I’m ready to move on.
Can you spill anything about The Audrina Show? The producer is Mark Burnett, who executive-produced Survivor. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at my life in L.A.—the movies and shoots and parties. It’s not as glamorous as it appears, plus it’ll actually feature people I know. It’s, like, real.
The trailer for the 6th season of The Hills is here! Judging from the trailer, it seems the new bitch star of the show is none other than Laguna Beach alum, Kristin Cavallari.
In what is likely to be Audrina’sfinal season, we get to see Kristin stir up some drama when she begins dating Audrina’s ex, Justin Bobby.
Other storylines to come this season will include newlyweds, Spencer and Heidi Pratt, contemplating whether or not to have a baby. Yes the thought of those two breeding is pretty scary to us as well.
To sum it up, the Hills’ stars get to put their acting skills to the test in this upcoming season. It’s pretty obvious the show is very fake by now, and you can’t really blame some of the stars for faking it, as it was reported that Kristin earns an incredible $63,000 per episode.
Audrina also plans to continue pursuing her acting career, and credits The Hills for helping her, “I feel like it’s helped me a lot going to auditions and sitting in front of the camera… blocking the camera out and just getting into character.”
The new season of The Hills is set to premiere Sept. 29 on MTV.
