  • Torii

    Trey was hotter when he had longer hair

  • steph

    why does she always wear that red sting?

  • [~Famous~]

    We get one of these EVERYDAY? Seriously??

  • ksf

    what resturant is she eatting at?

  • Taylor

    The only reason the ratings were so high is because of the feud with Spencer and Heidi. L.C. is sooo boring. I think the whole feud is just for the cameras, anyway. No one will watch that crap without internal fighting going on within the show on camera.

  • laurensucksbeefcurtains

    Yay, Trey.. unfortunately we have to see that peice of shiiitttt LC with him.

  • Anonymous

    #10 on here appears to be Spencer.

  • Anonymous

    People watched in spite of Heidi and Spencer.

  • Mmmmm

    3.6 million … who are these ppl?

  • Jason

    LC looks gorgeous. Yeah… that is trey. I miss the old gang.

  • bianca

    I love Trey. LC is gorgeous but overdress for a lunch with an old high school friend. She is so down to earth that is why she keeps all her friend.

  • Fat an fuggy

    Man she’s so fug. What show is it again?..Brush your teeth beefy. Fat @ss.

  • tracycutie

    i want the laguna season1 crew back…except kristin…

  • ash

    lol @ all these hate comments. if you don’t like her or the show, why comment? idiots. she looks fabulous, i love her hair and make-up. she’s a classy girl.


    Geez… trey got himself a beer belly. still hott though!

  • Notbusy

    Spencer is making a fool out of Heidi and is only with her because of the camera’s following her. Notice the money signs he had painted on the wall… That’s all she is to him. Heidi and Spencer deserve each other. I hope they get rid of Heidi and replace her with Lo on the show.

  • http://- Joanna [Poland]

    wow, i like that guy!

  • janet

    She seems to like NYC.

  • zena

    Everybody wanted to watch the fight between Lauren and Heidi. Trey from LB 1, he looks so different.

  • grace kelly

    Number 10 and 13 are haters, don’t hate her because she is pretty, and successful, hahaha

  • apple

    Wow, she looks so much like Kate Middelton in the second picture.

  • zach

    I watch the show because of Lauren. I don’t watch it because of Heidi and Spencer. I actually change channels when I see these douchebags on my screen. As a matter of fact I could care less if those two got hit by a bus tomorrow. Heidi should be replaced with Lo. More Lo please.

  • brian

    She has these so called weird expressions because guess what, they are not staged photos, they are candid shots. This is what makes her real. Love her, Team LC.

  • eddie

    Ash, I agree with you. Don’t watch the show if you don’t like her, it’s that simple. She rocks in my book. I can’t wait for her fashion like to debut.

  • abigail

    Where is she filming in NYC? I live in NYC and would love to meet her.

  • trent

    The guy in the blue shirt looks like Marc Jacobs.

  • macy

    Reunited and feels so good.

  • mercy

    Is she the IT girl right now?

  • jason

    More LC, More LC, thanks Jared, you rock.

  • jayden

    Trey looks like he is 30, what happened to him? He used to be hot.

  • caitt

    i dont understand why people waste thier time commenting if they hate her/the show & have nothing nice to say aboutt them,
    like dont waste your time, or someone might start to think youre jelous.

    i love lauren, ever since the beginging of laguna beach. season one had like the best people (LC, Lo, Stephen, Trey, Dieter…)

    i love lauren’s hair & clothes and shes absolutly gorgeous !


  • Julia

    wow trey looks different haha

  • steph

    ok what is with the red sting?

  • leslie

    LOVE these pictures!! Trey was my fave guy from LB! He’s goodlooking AND has a brain – a deadly combination ;) I’d love to know what he’s been up to since LB…anyone know?

  • jenna

    oh yay! i love trey!

  • Chris

    i love her outfit and hair. perfect setup!

  • micheal

    The red string is something to do with her anorexia therapy. She suffers from the disease when she was younger and now she wears this bracelet as a reminder.

    She looks gorgeous as usual. What a lovely face.

    I do fear that LC is being over exposed then their will be a backlash since this is how hollywood works. She needs to tone the spotlight off a little.

  • http://huiisasy d

    Lauren looks mad nice here as always the haters who call her fat perhaps no actually you must be some fatass loser who has no life and is ugly.

    Wait what the hell is she doing in NYC anyway she’s is there more than one day now does she live here or something.

    P.s. to the one whom asked were is this restaurant it’s in west village it was already said above read it.

  • Tanya

    Maybe…just maybe she’s in NYC for press. She was on Regis and Kelly Monday…and did stop by MTV – ya know the little tv station that sort of produces the show she’s on… ya, that ;)

    People post as hates because they want attention. They show off here but in real life they are usually shy and won’t even stand up for themselves when push comes to shove.

    I really hope Trey makes an appearance on the show…if not for only 5 seconds. Would be nice.

    And it is so annoying with everyone out there wanting a shot or to sell their stories/pictures. It allows for over exposure and all that overloading.

  • diana

    she is a pretty girl. I do not like the outfit though. good to see that all the attention has not went to her head and can hang with her old friends.
