Wait, Why Is Lauren Conrad a Person We Talk About Again?

Lauren Conrad. Okay. I have absolutely nothing against LC. She seems totally nice, quiet, mauve, and weirdly solemn—she doesn't offend me or bother me or piss me off. (One glorious time she did make me laugh my ass off, but that seems like a one-off production.) Obviously she has some level of marketability, because… » 9/25/12 10:00am 9/25/12 10:00am

Lauren Conrad Takes Down Book-Shredding 'Craft' Video After Learning…

Okay, first of all, I actually really really like Lauren Conrad. I think she seems like a genuinely nice (if harmlessly shallow and sometimes clueless) human being. But second of all, this fucking video—in which LC, published author, informs acolytes that "a great way to display books" is to completely destroy all… » 8/16/12 8:45pm 8/16/12 8:45pm
