Former reality star and current author and fashionista Lauren Conrad explains why she became an author and why she's over the club scene.

In a new interview with Marie Claire, the former star of The Hills also dishes on boyfriend William Tell.  Here's a small glimpse – the full interview will be on news stands June 18th.

On why she started writing: “I only ever got to tell half of my story. People are very quick to judge these days, especially behind the anonymity of a screen name. It’s very easy to say, ‘I hate her, I hate what she wore, she seems mean.’ But you’re only seeing a small fraction of her life.”

On bitchy cable-TV shows and the club life: “It feels done for me. I’m OK with it being done…I destroyed my voice when I moved to L.A. There are polyps all over my vocal chords because I was in a lot of loud places. If you listen to the first episode of Laguna, my voice is completely different.”

On boyfriend William Tell: “He is very good for me because we have a lot in common as far as where we grew up. It’s the first time I’m with someone and I’m not explaining things. He also has experience in the entertainment industry, so he understands a lot of things that people don’t always get.”

On negativity: “There is always gonna be a little bit of…negativity, which just comes with the territory. You realise it doesn’t matter. It’s so simple, but it’s a very hard lesson to learn. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really affect you in any way.”
