Family Guy Sneak Peek: Lauren Conrad Is a Genius

Lauren Conrad is gettin' fancy! Not only does her animated self get busy with Brian Griffin (not every celebutante can say that!) in the May 3 episode of Family Guy, but she also reveals that she's smarter than the average reality bunny.

Lauren says of her Guy gig, "The idea in the episode is that they make fun of me for being dumb and then discover that I'm actually a genius, and that [Lauren Conrad is] kind of a character I play [on TV], because America likes dumb people."

And how did L.C. handle the challenges of playing a cartoon genius?

She says, "I hired an acting coach just for the day because a lot of the lines later on in the episode are very complicated. I'm talking a lot about history and theorems and conductors, and there's a lot of facts and a lot of big words, and I had to say it as if it was coming to me very easily, so I had to learn the lines ahead of time rather than just reading them. I actually had to research some of them because the acting coach told me that if I really understood what I was talking about, it would come through a little more true."

Do you think she'll be able to pull it off? How do you feel about this commingling of The Hills and Family Guy? The comments are yours.
