Here is what the 26-year-old television personality and “Starstruck” author had to share with the mag:
On her haters: “People felt that a lot of the things I had were undeserved, maybe because I didn’t have a specific talent; I was more of a regular girl and maybe didn’t deserve the attention. I think anyone in the public eye is going to be hated, and a lesson that I needed to learn quickly is that it is impossible to please everybody. One person will call you classy, and another will call you boring.”
On how ‘real’ The Hills was: “I think the story they told wasn’t a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was. They aren’t going to be there for everything. Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that’s important to the story line. The [producers] need that reenacted. Their things was always: It did happen. They’re not making this up: you just didn’t see it… Brody and I did date. It was pretty brief. There was definitely editing to drag it out.”
On dating in LA: “You don’t want a slob, but you don’t want a guy whose constantly borrowing your tweezers… the last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it’s slim pickings.”
