Lauren Conrad on friends, fame and her pretty, pretty hair

lauren-conrad-glamour-cover.jpg Lauren Conrad may have left "The Hills," but she's not disappearing any time soon. This month, she's ... well, just about everywhere. She's been on a book tour to promote her new novel "Sweet Little Lies" (about a reality TV star, what else?),she just released her Spring 2010 collection for Kohls, and she's on the cover of Glamour's friendship issue.

On BFFs Lo Bosworth and Whitney Port: They're my support system. When I'm upset they build me up, and if I'm getting a little too involved, they bring me back.

On writing: I didn't realize that you had to do an overview, then a chapter outline. Then it comes down to filling in the blanks. At night I can write for hours.

On fame: I get very uncomfortable with people watching me. [Now] when [I'm] in a movie theater and [I] can hear the whispers, it's like that really bad dream where you go to school naked. You feel so self-conscious.
