If there is one girl that doesn't need no further introduction, that is Lauren Conrad. The gorgeous 25-year-old former reality-star-turned-designer and NY best-selling author graces the cover of 'Lucky' magazine, the July 2011 issue. As usually, Lauren flaunts a flawless smile and beautiful long tresses. On the cover she wears leather shorts and a blazer from her new clothing line 'Paper Crown'. Lauren shares some interesting things in the interview speaking about MTV cancelling her show, hating the gym, but also about 'The Hills' and her new collection 'Paper Crown'.

"It’s easier to launch the line without MTV. A lot of people in fashion don’t want to be linked with anything that has to do with reality TV. Showrooms were turning us down," Lauren told 'Lucky' about launching 'Paper Crown' without MTV's support.

Lauren announced in September last year that she will be doing a new reality show for MTV which was supposed to focus more on her work as a fashion designer rather than her personal life. Still, MTV cancelled the show saying that they "didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it". Speaking about this, Lauren told 'Lucky' that, "It didn’t feel like a perfect fit. It’s difficult to compete with all the Jersey Shore-type shows out there. Besides, there weren’t any scenes of me getting drunk or fighting, so what’s the point?"

Lauren Conrad became famous due to MTV's reality series 'Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County' and 'The Hills'. Now, the young star admits that 'The Hills' helped her a lot in launching her career as fashion designer. "I never wanted to end up in entertainment; that wasn't the goal. I was doing the show to end up in fashion. But I'm totally aware that without 'The Hills,' I wouldn't be where I am."

Whether she's wearing a casual, daytime outfit or sporting a stunning red-carpet dress, Lauren always manages to make a flawless appearance. And this requires a lot of hard work. She might not be the uber-skinny type of girl, yet she looks amazing. Still, Conrad admits she hates going to the gym. Why? "I'm just not a fan of the gym. In fact, I hate it. I understand loving the feeling you get after working out all those endorphins. But going there? It's the worst," she told the magazine.

However, she tries to compensate this by adopting healthier diet and she admits she has changed her eating habits. "I’m now focusing a lot more on my health. I no longer eat pork, I rarely eat beef, and I don’t like chicken now because my mother keeps four hens as pets. I’m not kidding," Lauren says.
