As many of you have surely heard by now, 22-year-old Lauren Conrad from MTV’s reality show The Hills got a book contract today from Lisa Sharkey at HarperCollins. Is it a tell-all she’s going to write? No! Try three novels for teens, the first of which, L.A. Candy, "tells the behind-the scenes story of a young girl who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show." It’s kind of like when Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl wrote a short story for The New Yorker, except, like, the other way around!
Actually, "behind-the-scenes" is pretty funny, all things considered. And besides, it’s not like Ms. Conrad is the first fictional character to write a real-life book. Most famous among them is probably JT Leroy. Also the lady from All My Children, Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks, and the cartoon baby from Family Guy.
