Lauren Conrad on the set of "The Hills"

The Hills star revealed some gripping details about her new book L.A. Candy yesterday. The book is the first in a series of three, giving Americans three valid reasons to stop reading completely.

According to her MySpace blog: “They will tell a behind-the-scenes story of a young girl who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show.  The books will be loosely inspired by my own experience and are definitely influenced by my own life.”

Sweet Jesus, that sounds compelling. Here I was thinking her talents stopped at acting, fashion design, and constipated pre-commercial-break facial expressions. Guess I can add “master storyteller” to that list. Sometimes God just picks somebody and gives ’em all the gifts.
