Lauren Conrad explores 'rock bottom'
Lauren Conrad commiserates with the protagonist in her book series.
The former The Hills reality star released her first novel L.A. Candy in April. The tome details the life of fame-hungry Madison Parker, a young woman who scores a reality show and is intent on never losing her celebrity.
Lauren understands why her character Madison is obsessed with maintaining her status.
"I think there's definitely times, I think, especially when you're younger and you're working in the entertainment industry, it feels very much like high stakes," she told MTV News. "So, I think it's hard and a lot of people-it's something that happens a lot in Hollywood is that people hit rock bottom."
Lauren did her best to portray Madison comprehensively.
"I think that the biggest challenge is to take a love-to-hate character and really humanise her," Lauren explained. "So I knew where I wanted her to start, and I knew where I wanted her to end up and along the way I kind of wanted her to hit rock bottom. So that's where I'm at right now, sort of taking her along her own journey."
Lauren second book in her novel trilogy will be released in November.
