The Hills: Where Are The Cast Members Now?

Following the personal and professional lives of young men and women in Los Angeles, ‘The Hill’ focused initially on Lauren Conrad’s journey in the fashion industry. The show was released in 2006 on MTV and showcased glitz and glamour. The series did not just follow the professional and personal lives of young people in Los Angeles but also set the precursor for a generation of culture embedded in fashion and aesthetics to boom.

With a carefree premise that didn’t rely heavily on drama, ‘The Hills’ was one of the many reality television shows that people find hard to forget. The reality television show’s widespread acclaim even earned it a reboot called ‘The Hills: New Beginnings.’ Naturally, many must be wondering where the group of friends living fashionable lives are now. So, if you’re also wondering where’s the cast of ‘The Hills’, worry not because we’ve got all the answers!

Lauren Conrad is Now a New York Times Best-Selling Author

Delving deep into Lauren Conrad’s career and relationship, ‘The Hills’ featured Conrad until her exit after season 5 in 2009. The reality TV star had originally attributed her exit to exploring other career options. However, in the ‘With Whit’ podcast with former castmate Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad opened up and said that she needed to emotionally recover from her time on the reality show, and as such, moved out of Los Angeles.

It wasn’t long before Conrad became a fashion mogul and launched her lifestyle brand. From a designer, Conrad catapulted into sharing her tips on cooking, crafting, fashion, beauty, and decor on her website. Over time, she has also expanded in jewelry, accessories, ornaments, and fragrances. While her brand can be found exclusively at Kohl’s, it was her writing journey that fans engaged with immensely.

After signing multiple book deals with Harper Collins, Lauren released a series of young adult novels and became a New York Times best-selling author. In addition to her ventures, Conrad also dabbles in philanthropy and founded The Little Market, a non-profit for women empowerment.

In 2014, Lauren tied the knot with lawyer and musician William Tell. The couple had first met onstage at Tell’s concert when Lauren was just 16. However, it wasn’t until they were introduced to each other on a blind date ten years later that sparks flew. The couple shares two sons in addition to a flourishing career.
