Lauren Conrad Clears Charity Controversy

Lauren Conrad Clears Charity Controversy

Lauren Conrad recently attended Animal Fair Media’s 2008 Annual “Paws For Style” at Arena in New York City on Tuesday. Since then, controversy has erupted as to whether or not the charity funded her trip to New York City.

Lauren responded on Wednesday via her Myspace Celebrity blog:

“I would like to address some of the internet rumors regarding what happened at an event I attended in New York on Tuesday. I was invited by Animal Fair Magazine to attend a charity event, ‘Paws For Style’ fashion show. I have always been a supporter of animal causes. I own 2 rescue animals and this sounded like a great event. I agreed to pose for the cover of the magazine, host the event, do press at the event and donate clothing, all of which I did. I was not aware of any other commitments. I was not paid to attend the event and my hotel room was donated to the charity. I also made a voluntary donation to the Humane Society for more then the cost of my airfare so there would be no expense to the charity. I have always been responsible and keep my word on all commitments. I am extremely hurt and disappointed that Wendy Diamond would go to the press and attack me with untrue statements. Anyone who knows me, knows this is not the kind of person I am or who my parent’s raised me to be. It’s just embarrassing that people are saying these things about me. I was trying to do a good thing and help out a charity by doing everything I agreed to do. I continue to support the Humane Society, as it is a wonderful organization.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about the doggy debacle?!?!

    That it’s a tempest in a teapot. If they raised money, they raised money.

    Google the Red Cross and United Way if you wanna get bent over inappropriate use of charitable funds.

    Wendy Diamond looks and sounds like a ******. Obviously Lauren was not obligated to walk in the show and she did so much for free. She donated money and clothes, hosted the event and even talk to the press, what more did they want. Plus, she went and lied to everyone stating that she was paid tons of money what a loser. TEAM LC

    Hmm Says:

    First off, I’m sick of seeing this girl. She’s some chick from a cheesy reality show that for some reason tons of people watch.. when really the show is about everyday people type sh*t you could be doing instead of sitting in front of the tv.

    Second, I think they did comp her airfare and hotel and I’m pretty sure that’s one reason.. in addition to her “love” for animals she went. Then I think after the backlash, a publicist or whoever has the brains in her camp told her what to say and how to cover her a*s. I mean she just said her donation to the ASPCA was because they paid for her airfare. She should have let them know they didn’t have to get her airfare from the get go.. same with the hotel. And you know they got her first class tickets because she doesn’t seem the coach or economy type.

    Girls got enough money to foot her own bills and expenses and do charity work the right way. And if she doesn’t her rich peepaw and mama do.

    Sick of celebs getting kick back for something they should do for free and them justify in by saying their involvement will bring more money to said charity.

    Hmm, WTF… Lauren is well spoken, choosy about her charity work (nothing at all like Speidi) and should not be criticized for the effort she has made for this cause. People are foolish to look to stir up issues that don’t exist. Go LC!!

    remember da truth Says:

    Lauren ought to know, like anyone with the barest amount of schooling, that “parents” are plural, not spelled “parent’s”. How illiterate is this stupid rich girl?
    People who can’t spell a word when there’s more than one of something and simply add an “s” to it should not graduate high school. Hell, they shouldn’t get past third grade!

    McQueen Says:

    It’s not like she would need to be paid to be at the charity any way she is extremly wealthy. Besides, the charity was able to make some money for their cause that is all that really matters.

    I agree with #4 and #6 thanks for pointing out the spelling issues.. that was funny!

    “parent’s” would apply ownership kiddies “parents” refers to more then one of the people who created you.. duh.

    ekaterina Says:

    Um, Wendy Diamond is a bloody idiot. She got angry that the event has now been made to be all about LC?!? Um, yeah because you stirred it up! Going out and saying all these nasty things about LC’s involvement only directs the attention further towards her and further away from the event. It’s simple pr! She should have known better. I have sympathy for someone so stupid. There was no reason to release all this information to the press. Now no one cares about the actual event and rather about LC. Team LC just for Wendy Diamond being such a complete idiot.

    Yum! Says:

    Wendy Diamond is a total liar. Everyone that works with her has been screwed by her in one way or another and that crazy beeatcchh never pays HER bills. Ask any photog that has worked with her.

    I’m not a fan of LC but I can tell you that she is probably telling the truth here!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Lauren Conrad on many occasions and know her personally. In my experience, Lauren has been not only professional, but kind hearted and helpful. Allegations to the contrary are bad excuses for publicity.

    Mary Says:

    She said in her blog post that she donated money so it can cover her cost of airfare ( so there will be no expense to the charity) meaning the charity paid her to come to the event and in return she donated money so it looked like they didn’t pay her.

    Lauren and her Publicist are pretty freaking smart!!!!
