It's been more than a decade since MTV's The Hills first graced our TV screens. The show followed Lauren Conrad, previously from MTV's Laguna Beach as she navigated life after graduation. As early as 2018 The Hills officially got the green light to restart, and the new show premiered on June 24 – without Lauren Conrad. How much is the MTV star-to-fashion mogul worth today and why does not she return to the show?
Conrad was the original star of & # 39; The Hills & # 39;
When The Hills first premiered, it was essentially a spin-off of MTV's hugely successful teen-reality show ] Laguna Beach . Conrad was one of the protagonists of Laguna Beach and she was constantly in a teenage drama, including boy problems with Stephen Colletti and beef with Kristin Cavallari. When Laguna Beach came to an end, MTV kept the crowd on their toes by giving Conrad her own spinoff show. The Hills premiered in 2006 and was loaded with new characters and new drama. But by the end of the show in 2010 Conrad was not quite finished with many of the show's characters. They even said that they will not miss them when they restart in 2019.
She has her own fashion brand, which she has focused on for several years.
Since Conrad was at Laguna Beach she wanted to enter the fashion industry. And when The Hills began, Conrad finally got the opportunity to work at fashion magazines and finally started her own line. She has launched both Paper Crown and LC Lauren Conrad, a partnership with Kohls. She has been working in the fashion industry for more than a decade and her lines are largely responsible for her current assets. They are also the main reason why she left The Hills in 2009. She wanted to pursue other career opportunities and the producers had put pressure on them with storylines she was not satisfied with.
Conrad is also a writer and is currently expecting her second child.
In addition to Conrad's successful fashion lines, she has also achieved success in writing books. She is a bestselling New York Times editor and has published nine books. In 2014, Conrad married her boyfriend William Tell, who is the former guitarist of Something Corporate. The two have a son together and Conrad is currently expecting her second child.
During the first round of The Hills a lot of drama took place, and when a restart was announced, Conrad did not want any part of it. In addition, she is no longer able to operate reality TV between work and family. Her former co-stars do not seem to miss her, so perhaps it's not a bad thing she decided not to return to the show.
Conrad has an estimated value of $ 25 million.
Conrad's business activities have earned her a solid net worth of $ 25 million. Her books, clothing line, and general advertising helped her make a lot of money. So she definitely does not need reality television to be relevant. The Restart of The Hills premiered on June 24, and it will be interesting to see how the show reinvents itself without Conrad or Cavallari.
