    Whenever Lauren Conrad travels to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, something inevitably goes wrong.

    As viewers of Laguna Beach and The Hills know, drama typically ensues when the fashion designer is in town. Such was the case Thursday night when Conrad kicked off her bachelorette party weekend with former co-star Lo Bosworth, ex-roommate Jilli Hendrix and Little Market co-founder Hannah Skvarla.

    The group of gal pals visited The Office on the Beach but promptly left over the restaurants alleged anti-gay policy. "The Office in Cabo does not allow same sex couples to participate in couple games. Had to walk out. #equality #StopTheHate," Conrad told her 3.25 million Twitter followers. Bosworth echoed her BFF's sentiments, tweeting, "If you support #equalityforall don't eat at The Office in Cabo San Lucas." Hendrix and Skvarla shared similar messages via their social media accounts.

    However, a manager for The Office tells E! News otherwise: "We invite all diners to participate in our games. We've never had an issue before with homosexual couples. We are not homophobic at all. We have waiters, runners and a chef who are gay. We've never had a homophobic incident at The Office."

    The manager was not present for Conrad's party, but she believes there was likely a miscommunication. "We hire an MC who runs the games," the manager explains, "and I don't know what he may have said or how he addressed the crowd, but it must have been a misunderstanding."

    Conrad's bachelorette party started off on a much more positive note. "Let the games begin..." recent law student graduate William Tell's fiancée wrote in an Instagram photo caption. "#donttellmrtell."
