Lauren Conrad's Robert Pattinson Connection

Forget The Hills. That reality show is so, like, totally last year for Lauren Conrad.

Just today, Ms. Conrad launched a new clothing line for Kohl's department stores. And yesterday, it was announced that she has struck a deal for the movie adaptation of her debut novel, L.A. Candy.

"I've had a good week," Conrad told me as she was getting ready for a party tonight celebrating her Kohl's collection.

That's putting it mildly.

Her partner in the movie deal is Temple Hill Entertainment, which also happens to produce—get ready for this—the Twilight flicks!

Read on to find out what L.C. told me about working with Kohl's, appearing in the L.A. Candy movie and meeting Robert Pattinson…

Your Kohl's line is really affordable. Was that important to you?
When I partnered with Kohl's, I knew that I was going to be able to do a collection that would be offered at a lower price point. It was one of the main appeals...To be honest, if you are a great designer and you know what you're doing, you don't need to make very expensive clothing.

Is a couture line next?
Well, right now we're focusing on Kohl's [laughs]. It's a lot of work. I've been racking up miles flying to Milwaukee where the Kohl's headquarters is. There's a whole new delivery every month. It's always something new so you never get bored of it.

So, you're going to be working with the producers of Twilight. Not bad.
I know, right? I don't think you can get much better than that.

Does this mean you get to go on all the Twilight sets and meet Robert Pattinson?
That hasn't been discussed…yet. I feel like I need to wait. I've never read the Twilight books. I saw the movie, though, and it was really cute.

Are you going to be in the L.A. Candy movie?
We've talked about doing a funny cameo. I would never be a main part or anything.

And I'm not going to ask you if you've been watching The Hills.
I purposely didn't read about it or watch it, because I was like, I don't want to have an opinion. No opinion is best.
