Days before the Monday debut of the continuation of The Hills‘ third season, two mini-scandals conveniently and coincidentally popped up.
First, the show’s star, Lauren Conrad, was rumored to be pregnant by a thinly veiled blind item posted on a blog. But her publicist told OK! Magazine that’s not true. “The only person pregnant in Lauren Conrad’s life is her publicist and you can quote me on that,” she said. The original item was posted on Crazy Days and Nights, a blog I’ve never heard of and that was nearly impossible to find because no one likes to attribute sources anymore, preferring instead to just copy and pasted with reckless abandon. Anyway, the item said, “This Hills and/or Laguna Beach star is pregnant. Now if we could just figure out the daddy.”
Regarding the photos that someone released to the public today without my consent, I wanted you to know they were taken when I was just out of high school and beginning to model. I intended them to be artistic and not in any way provocative. The photos were for personal and portfolio use only and not meant to be seen by the public. I was naive, overly trusting of people and inexperienced. I thought that to be a model you had to be comfortable in front of the camera. I’m not ashamed of these photos, but I dont want my young fans to think they have to do what I did. I hope people can learn from my inexperience. It’s been almost five years since I posed for that shoot, and during that time I have learned many lessons about this business.
