Lauren Conrad's 'The Fame Game' hits Boston

Lauren Conrad, known for her long-running stint as "L.C." on MTV's "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills," had a massive turnout of mostly college-aged and teen girls at a book signing for her new tome "The Fame Game" 6 p.m. Thursday, April 5 at the Barnes & Noble located at 890 Boylston St. at the Prudential Center mall.

The book follows a 19-year-old reality star Madison Parker who plays the nice girl next door on a hot reality show called "L.A Candy." In Conrad's latest page turner, fame-hungry Parker has to deal with the new nice girl in town, Carmen Price, who comes from Hollywood royalty.

Sound familiar? Reportedly, Conrad's work isn't based on her stint on reality TV. However, her back-stabbing protagonist could easily be Kristin Cavallari from "Laguna Beach" or her former friend turned nemesis Heidi Montag from "The Hills."

"One thing I really wanted to do was take the mean girl, the girl who just clearly loves fame, and sort of explain why she is that way," she tells MTV News. "I think there's something very interesting about people who just really seem to enjoy everything that comes along with being famous, because — and it doesn't apply to everyone — but this character, it was something that fills a void in her life. So I liked that."

Meanwhile, legions of die-hard fans waited hours in line to meet Conrad at the Boston book signing. Ankita Patel and Amanda Guilmette (pictured above), both students in Boston, waited almost six hours in line to have an up-close-and-personal meeting with "The Hills" star.
