She was the woman who once told us "If You Have To Cry, Go Outside." And, this week, Kelly Cutrone drops her advice book, "Normal Gets You Nowhere."
The book not only has pearls of wisdom from the People's Rev founder, but also includes anecdotes from her life that are humorous, heartfelt and honest. But as it turns out, her publisher had a different idea of what she should do this time around.
"They wanted me to rewrite the Ten Commandments… like 'Kelly's Commandments.' [But] I did do a really fun chapter in the book called 'If You're Not Getting F---ed By Midnight, Go Home.' And I think that that’s worth $14.99," she laughed. "Just knowing that as a young woman when you're out at a club if you just remember at 11:59 [p.m.] if you're game ain't happening, it's time to go.
After being whisked away on a surprise trip to Cabo by boyfriend Jay Cutler, Kristin Cavallari returned to the States with a big, shiny smile on her face...and a bigger, shinier engagement ring on her pretty little finger, according to People. Aww! We love it when MTV alumni find love. And while we wait for Kristin to announce her upcoming wedding date (and leak a photo or two of the reportedly 5.2-carat rock, because come on), we thought we'd check up on the marital status of her fellow "Hills" co-stars. What's happening in the love lives of our favorite California girls? Check it!
Lauren Conrad has been happily coupled with boyfriend Kyle Howard for more than two years—though she's in no hurry to walk down the aisle. The star of "The Hills" has repeatedly squashed any rumors that the two are engaged, claiming that she's way too busy with her professional pursuits as an author, designer and style icon. (Psh. BORING.) Still, our money's on Lauren as the next one to tie the knot.
Last year, "The City" star Kelly Cutrone let some of her biggest fans know one thing about growing up and getting a job: "If You Have To Cry, Go Outside." The book—part memoir, part advice tome—became a bestseller, and Kelly, who was first introduced to MTV viewers as the sassy People's Revolution head honcho on "The Hills," is ready to preach some more words of wisdom in her new book, "Normal Gets You Nowhere."
"The book's called 'Normal Gets You Nowhere,' and I really believe that there's all this emphasis right now on young people to be normal, to get it together and I think that’s the worst advice," she explained to MTV News about the book, which drops on May 3 and is available for fans to pre-order right now.
With one fashion line, four books and two reality-show roles under her belt, Lauren Conrad has accomplished more by her mid-20s than most people will in their whole, sad, sorry little lives...not that we're jealous or anything. And since today is Lauren's big 25th birthday, we've put our heads together to come up with a list of five great gifts that could make the next year her best yet. So, what do you get for the girl who has (let's face it) everything? Here's hoping that Lauren's birthday brings her some fab stuff like...
1. A lifetime supply of oversized sunglasses
The reality star's big, '60s-inspired sunnies are one of the most recognizable elements of her distinctive style—so clearly, her birthday should bring on a truckload of 'em.
2. A successful spin-off
Lauren's latest book project is a follow-up to her "L.A. Candy" series, focusing this time on the villainous character Madison. Although her first foray into publishing already scored top honors with a spot on the New York Times Bestseller list, a second showing would still be nice.
3. Some bling for That Finger
We've heard an unsubstantiated rumor or two that Lauren is getting close to making it legal with boyfriend Kyle Howard. Just gossip? Maybe! But let's just say that if we were Kyle, we'd be eying a certain sparkly something to give L.C. for her B.D.
Lauren Conrad's New Year's resolution? To go dark, apparently! The former "Hills" star attended this week's 50th anniversary CoverGirl celebration having bid her blond locks bye-bye in favor of a brunette 'do.
Us Weekly spoke with Lauren's stylist, Kristin Ess, who explained the starlet's new look. "It was just time to go for it," she said. "We've done so many variations of blond in the past and it's fun to do something new." Though it is a new look for the reality star, whom we've known as a blond since her TV debut on MTV's "Laguna Beach," we bet this soft brown shade more closely matches her darker, natural roots.

When "Glory Daze"'s Drew Seeley asked followers on Twitter today, "New Years is sneaking up quick! What are your resolutions??" plenty of people chimed in with what they plan to change in 2011. But it seems some celebs have no intention of making any whatsoever, including singer Rob Thomas who wrote, "my new years resolution this year is to not make any resolutions." Same goes for "The Hills" star Kristin Cavallari (pictured) who wrote, "I'm not making a new years resolution bc I never stick with it...but if I did, it would be to stop swearing. That'll never happen!"
While many stars may not be making any changes for the new year, there's one thing they are all doing as of late: watching Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis totally bring it in "Black Swan"! Rocker Gavin Rossdale urged, "Black swan is completely brilliant- check it out" and it seems like plenty of moviegoers have already taken his advice. Actress Sophia Bush admitted, "Spent my first 10min awake this AM staring out the window thinking about Black Swan. And I'm still thinking about it! Must see it again..." while "So You Think You Can Dance" finalist Lacey Schwimmer has already viewed it for a second time, telling fans, "Black Swan round 2 was even better! I actually got to see the real story! Beautiful!"

First "The Hills," now "The City." After two seasons, Whitney Port's New York City-set reality show will not be returning to the MTV airwaves. Let's pour out a Cosmo in its memory.
Okay, now that the mourning portion of this post is over, let's look to the future—cause that's what Miss Port's doing. When she stopped by Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Monday, the leggy blond told the less-leggy, frosted-tipped blond that she has plans. "I'm working on some other things," Whitney hinted. "It's okay. One door closes and another opens." Though Whitney was a bit vague about what's waiting behind those doors, we've got a few ideas of our own. Check out our suggestions for Whitney's new gig and vote for your favorite!
In the aftermath of "The Hills," the post-production exploits of the show's stars have really run the gamut from low-key, to high-profile, to... well, has anyone even seen Spencer lately? But if (when?) it comes time for a five-year cast reunion, there's no question: Lauren Conrad will be the post-show success story for everyone to envy. Looking confident and poised in an azure Nanette Lepore dress, Lauren is sitting pretty on the cover of this month's Teen Vogue—and dishing about her new fashion line and love life.
It's common knowledge that Lauren's been keeping busy; the star has already penned several best-selling books, collaborated on a clothing line for Kohl's and is hard at work launching a new label called "Paper Crown," which is all about the fun of dressing up. The line is her latest contribution to the fashion scene, but don't be expecting any major changes; Lauren's signature, ultra-feminine, go-big-or-go-home style will be on display in all its glory. She tells the interviewer, "They were like, 'Do you want to do sunglasses,' and I said, 'Only if I can do them big!' Then they were like, ‘Do you want to do shoes?' And I said, ‘Only if I can do them tall!'"

Pull those "Team LC" T-shirts out of storage, because everyone's favorite reality star is returning to the small screen. The network that transformed high school student Lauren Conrad into LC, the TV star, author and designer, is at it again, as MTV partners with Lauren for her third reality series. In this documentary-style show, Lauren will show off her entrepreneurial skills, as she builds a fashion house from scratch.
Lauren's already flaunted her style savvy, launching several fashion lines including the Lauren Conrad collection, which debuted at 2008's L.A. Fashion Week and a casual wear line for Kohl's. Add to her credentials, bestselling author, and there seems to be no end in sight for the 24-year-old's success.
Conrad, who has had a six-year relationship with MTV, beginning with "Laguna Beach" followed by "The Hills," told The Hollywood Reporter that she is "happy to be back." We feel the same way, Lauren. What do you think, Crushers? Do you plan on watching her new show? Vote in our poll after the jump!
OK OK, we get it already, many people are sick of vampires. They sit there hoping the fad will pass, just like they hope M. Night Shyamalan will never direct another film and Michael Cera has stopped trying to perfect awkward (Jesse Eisenberg so does it better… yes, they are different people).
But did the creators of all those terrible spoof movies really have to make a film called "Vampires Suck," hot off the heels of last year's "Transylmania"? At least that one targeted the vampire fan specifically, but "Vampires Suck" takes a genre that should be easy to mock (like there aren’t enough vampires in pop culture?) and muddles it with jabs at "Jersey Shore," Lady Gaga and "Alice in Wonderland." Please connect those dots for us more than "they all were popular this year."
Maybe if they decided to mock some things that deserved to be mocked but aren't, people might stop sighing as spoof movie trailers pop up in theaters as well. Here are our suggestions.
