Lauren Conrad may be The Hills' biggest breakout star, but her time on the show definitely had some dark moments.
Her worst memory during her run on the hit MTV reality series? Read on to find out. Plus, get the details on her father's shocking reaction...
"Worst time was when there was a rumor I had a sex tape," Conrad told me last night during our exclusive one-on-one sit-down at the series finale party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. "And the worst part of that is you have to make one really uncomfortable phone call to your parents."
Fortunately, things turned out just fine.
"I was crying on the phone with my mom and then my dad got on the phone," Conrad remembered. "I was scared to tell him this was going around, and he says, 'What's the big deal? Everybody has sex.' He was the most mellow about it!"
In other shocking news, Conrad, who left The Hills a while ago, says she was quite surprised to be nominated this year for a Teen Choice Award for Female Reality/Variety Star.
"It's a little strange," she said, smiling. "It's really cool, but unexpected."
However, she doesn't think she'll be going home with the surfboard, because she's up against a certain Jersey Shore starlet. "Hands down," Conrad said, "Snooki will win."
Snooki twittered me this morning, "Aw haha I love lauren !! We shall see!"
Conrad has yet to meet the Jersey Shore cast. "I wasn't at the Movie Awards this year because I had to work in New York, but Lo [Bosworth] called me like in the middle of the night and she put DJ Pauly D on the phone with me," Conrad said. "That was pretty exciting for me."
