If you ask what every starlet wants, Lauren Conrad has gotten it, check, check, check, right down the line.

Starring in your own show? "The Hills." Check. (no matter how real/unreal it is).

Fame and fortune? Check, check.

Your own clothing line? Check.

A three-book deal with Harper Collins? Check.

But really? Why would a starlet with all this other stuff on her plate want to write books? Isn't she busy? Exactly what stories might a 22-year-old television actress want to tell? She told "People Magazine":

It's definitely influenced by my own life. The books are about a girl who moves to L.A. and stars in a reality show, so obviously there are some similarities.

So it's a three-book semi-autobiographical series about a girl who stars in a semi-reality series. My head is spinning. This could get really heavy. But wait, it's going to be titled "L.A. Candy" -- heavy, not so much.

Conrad went on to tell People, "Honestly I haven't told everyone." Well, they know now.
