Lauren Conrad covers the July issue of Marie Claire in which she opens up about her past role on The Hills and her relationship with beau, William Tell.
She admits that she doesn't hit the Hollywood club scene anymore with gal pals Audrina Patridge and Heidi Montag.
"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 fans of the hit MTV show that judged her:
"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," Conrad says of her career as a writer. "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."
She ignored negativity, especially online saying:
"You realize it doesn't matter," Conrad says. "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."
And on her current love-life with William Tell, whom she met on Vantentine's Day of 2012.
"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."
Success with her clothing line and other products is what has kept the star relavant today!
