“Hi, I’m Lauren. I grew up in Laguna Beach — a small town with big drama. But now, it’s time for me to move on. I got an apartment with my good friend Heidi, I’m going to fashion school and I scored an interview for a killer internship with ‘Teen Vogue.’ This is my chance to make it happen – in the one city where they say dreams come true.”
– Lauren Conrad, The Hills
Cannot bear very much reality.
