With the series finale of her reality show, The Hills, looming large on July 13, Lo Bosworth has already planned her next move. Yep, BFFs, Lo is sticking to what she knows best – TV!
“I’m transitioning into television hosting instead of reality TV,” the 23-year-old starlet told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles July 7. “I have a show in development now – it’s a lifestyle show, so fingers crossed that it gets picked up!”
Additionally, Lo, who is currently promoting Nivea’s Goodbye Cellulite challenge, is launching her digital media company, the lowdown.com, on the same day as her show’s finale. “We’re talking about relationships, health and fitness, beauty and style. We’re really trying to create a community and have a conversation. I have a book coming out in January, also appropriately titled “The Lodown” and that is a relationship guide for girls,” she said.
But will Lo return to reality TV? It depends on the program. “I would NOT be on The Bachelorette – I have a boyfriend [lacrosse player Scott Hochstadt],” she said. “I’m done with the docu-soap thing. The Hills is over for me; I’m not going on any other reality shows. Dancing With the Stars really freaks me out. I would only do it for the challenge, to sort of prove myself wrong, to be brave enough to do it because it’s just terrifying to me. But that’s it – I’m moving on.”
With all the projects she has in the pipeline, it’s no wonder Lo is pooh-poohing appearing in the film adaptation of BFF (and current roommate) Lauren Conrad’s best-selling book, “LA Candy.”
“No, no, no, no! Absolutely not planning on it!” she laughed. Although the project is shrouded in mystery, Lo did let us in on one little secret…”We hoped that the [main character] would be played by an unknown – just like when we were all unknowns when we first started on Laguna Beach way back when. I think that’s the best way to go about doing it.”
