But on Friday night, the former reality star proved she had a sense of humor about the MTV show.
"Private Practice" star Kate Walsh spoofed LC at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre's "The Hills: A Staged Reading" on Friday in Los Angeles, E! Online reported – and the real-life Lauren was spotted in attendance cracking up.
Kate reportedly voiced such "Hills" nuggets as "Tell me if he's cute 'cause I'm drunk" and "I want to forgive you, and I want to forget you," Lauren's famous line to frenemy Heidi Pratt, formerly Montag.
The MTV show will go on this fall with its sixth season, with "Laguna Beach" star Kristin Cavallari joining the cast following Lauren's exit.
But life away from the cameras seems to suit LC – in addition to Friday night's laughter, the sporty star has been spotted in recent days cheering on the Los Angeles Lakers with boyfriend Kyle Howard and throwing out the first pitch at the LA Dodgers' game on Saturday.
