People always say "just be yourself" and that is exactly how Lauren Conrad became a household name. The California girl starred on the MTV reality show Laguna Beach opposite romantic rival Kristin Cavallari before getting her own show, The Hills, in 2006. Three seasons later, Lauren's feud with former bestie Heidi Montag and a sex tape rumor started by Heidi's beau Spencer Pratt surrounded the show in scandal that audiences couldn't get enough of! In 2008, LC launched her debut fashion line before leaving The Hills the next year when she also released her first novel, L.A. Candy. Lauren's romantic exploits with fellow co-stars Jason Wahler, Stephen Colletti and Brody Jenner also helped LC gain a reputation as a girl who loves the bad boys before she settled into a three year relationship with My Boys star Kyle Howard.
