Despite calling Brody Jenner scum — in two languages, no less — on last week’s episode of The Hills, Lauren Conrad and her one-time reality TV show crush happily coexisted at the Spring 2008 launch party for Rowdy, designed by music producer Dallas Austin. Jenner insists, “Oh, we’re friends. We shot a bunch of episodes so that was just one that was in the past and it was dramatic, but we move on.
Conrad summarizes the making-up process: “Awkward phone call!” She explains, “He called me after the first episode, and he was like, ‘So I’m scum?’ And I was like, ‘I mean like at the time I was mad, sorry.”
Jenner brought along his girlfriend Cora Skinner, while the single Conrad roamed around the Lisa Kline Men boutique with childhood pal Jilly, who sometimes appears in the background on the show.
“I’m dating but not one specific person, as usual,” she said. “I’m never dating anyone! Every time I start hanging out with someone I kind of step back and like, ‘I don’t want to commit because just like the feeling of being in a relationship and being like I couldn’t date anyone else. I’m too young. Unless you find someone who’s really special and worth it.” –Jenny SundelSara Jaye Weiss/StartraksPhoto; George Pimentel/Wi
