What Will Lauren Conrad From ‘The Hills’ Be Up to in 2019?
It’s hard to believe it’s been over a decade since the MTV hit, The Hills, first aired. Thanks to Laguna Beach, fans were already familiar with Lauren Conrad, as the show was narrated by her as she completed her senior year of high school in Laguna Beach, California. The Hills then followed Conrad and her friends as she made her big move to Los Angeles and entered the workforce while navigating her interpersonal relationships with friends and boyfriends. And now, fans of L.C. and her friends are wondering what the MTV star is up to now that The Hills has been off the air for years.
Conrad is enjoying married life and her 1-year-old baby
Fans didn’t get to meet Conrad’s husband, William Tell, on The Hills, but Us Weekly reports she actually met him when she was 16 years old. She was sitting at a Something Corporate concert at the time, a band William Tell was a part of. Then, 10 years later, the two were set up on a blind date and fell deeply in love. By 2014, they confirmed that they tied the knot in California — and they’ve seemingly been going strong ever since.
As for more recent news for the couple, Tell and Conrad welcomed a baby in July 2017. This past year, the happy couple celebrated their son’s first birthday together, as seen on Conrad’s Instagram. We’re sure in 2019 we’ll get even more adorable photos as baby Liam grows.
She’s continuing with her ultra-successful fashion lines
Just because she’s a new mom doesn’t mean Conrad has given up on her fashion lines, however. Back in 2009, the designer launched the LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl’s, and she continues to be the lead designer for her line now. The clothing is marketed as having “modern silhouettes, softly feminine details and inviting home decor” for a “chic, effortless lifestyle.” One source confirmed to E! News that Conrad was continuing with her fashion, too, as they said, “Lauren is concentrating right now on her Kohl’s line and her charity work, which she is very passionate about.”
Her partnership with Kohl’s is going so well, in fact, that she’s worked to expand her collection beyond just clothing. As stated on the Kohl’s site, home decor is now part of the LC line, and she also has jewelry, accessories, and handbags featured on her website that you can purchase through the retail giant.
She’s working on her co-founded business, The Little Market
As if one super success wasn’t enough for Conrad, she also has a nonprofit business called The Little Market. According to the website, it’s “a nonprofit founded by women to empower women” — and it expanded rapidly in the fall of 2018. An insider told E! News that Conrad was working on “opening her first store for Little Market right now” back in August, and since then, it appears that Conrad made her dreams come in true. You can now visit the Little Market brick-and-mortar store in the Pacific Palisades, California.
Will she be a part of The Hills reboot in 2019?

I feel so lucky to be a part of everything we do at @thelittlemarket, but even more lucky to get to do it with a best friend! I’m so proud to have @hannahskvarla as a partner and co-founder. I will never stop being impressed with her kindness and willingness to give so much of herself to others
In case you haven’t heard, The Hills is set to reboot in 2019 — and that means plenty of the original cast members will also be set to join the cast. Can we expect to see Conrad on the show? It appears not, as her family, business ventures, and new storefront in the Pacific Palisades are all keeping her way too busy for television, E! News reports. She’s not the only original member who fans won’t be seeing either, as Lo Bosworth has also condemned the show on a podcast by stating, “I don’t want any association with any of those people. The dissociation from all those people is what I’m hungry for. I think everybody actually feels that way about their coworkers, which is really what the The Hills was.”
Even without Conrad on the show, we’ll still get to keep up with her thanks to her frequent social media presence and beautiful designs. As for everyone else from The Hills, we can (hopefully) look forward to seeing them on the show.
