Lauren Conrad hasn’t forgotten her roots.
The former Hills star has become a best-selling author, clothing designer and much buzzed-about fashionista, but she now is returning to the career that made her famous – reality TV star.
Conrad, 24, spoke about starring in a new MTV reality show about her life as a clothing designer on KIIS FM’s On Air With Ryan Seacrest Friday. When Seacrest asked if the rumors of her return were true, Conrad coyly said, “It’d be safe to say [yes] … It would follow my career, set in L.A.”
MTV later confirmed the news to PEOPLE.
