While Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad consider rekindling their relationship on The Hills, Conrad is already getting the go-ahead from Jenner’s parents.
At a recent celebrity golf tournament hosted by the Entertainment Industry Foundation, Bruce Jenner told PEOPLE, “I wouldn’t watch [the show] probably if it wasn’t for Brody. But I try to get in as many [episodes] as I possibly can.” And it’s proven to be a good way to keep a close eye on his son’s romantic entanglements.
Though Jenner says he has a “hard time trying to keep up with all the drama on that show,” he admits he’s tuned in enough to make a judgment call on whether Conrad would be a good person for his son to date.
“I have no problem with that,” he said. “Brody’s a good kid. He’s dated a lot of girls and yeah, Lauren would be very good.”
When asked how she felt about getting Mr. Jenner’s approval at the launch party for the new videogame “Assassin’s Creed” Tuesday night, Conrad laughed, before revealing that he wasn’t the only one she’d impressed.
“When I kissed him on his birthday, his mom [Linda Thompson] was there, and walked over and gave him the double thumbs,” she tells PEOPLE. “I almost died!”
