MTV had its share of reality superstars, from the trouble-stirring Puck of "The Real World" (1992- ) to the rocker-turned-family man Ozzy Osbourne of "The Osbournes" (2002-05). But no one ever captured the attention of millions of viewers simply because she experienced the dramatic highs and lows of high school and post-high school life more than Lauren "L.C." Conrad, who starred in the massive hits, "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County" (2004-05) and "The Hills" (2006-10). In the end, a surprising businesswoman who used her fame to further her own fashion aspirations with her clothing line, this television den mother to a series of overly dramatic girlfriends was a hard one to figure out. But there was no denying the level of admiration and identification her female fans of all ages felt for the ever dependable L.C. as she navigated the choppy, shark-infested waters of growing up in Southern California.
