Looks like she missed the spotlight: The Hills alumna Lauren Conrad, who famously dropped out of the faux-reality show because she was getting too much attention, is back on teevee. She's just inked a deal to star in an MTV series about the launch of her newest fashion line. "I am so excited to be rejoining the MTV family," she told MTV News. "The new project will follow me as I develop my new contemporary line and also touch on my other businesses."
After Conrad's first eponymous clothing line failed, she launched a collection with discount retailer Kohl's. Last month, Conrad announced she would re-launch a higher-priced contemporary women's collection. A reality show just might help move the produce. "I've always been open to doing reality again," she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. "Just under certain circumstances. As long as you have a separation, then it works. You have your personal life and you have work life; when they're combined, it's difficult."
