On Saturday, November 12, Lauren Conrad, looking pretty in all black attended the dual birthday celebration for Sophia Rossi (former Hills producer) and Liz Meriwether at Rock & Reilly’s Irish Pub in West Hollywood.
Fellow guests including Zooey Deschanel, Nicole Richie, Jamie-Lynn Sigler & Couger Town's Busy Philips danced to classic rock and roll hits, took photos in Reilly’s photo booth and enjoyed cocktails throughout the night.
In case you haven't read it yet Sophia recently did a terrific interview with the The Daily Beast where she discussed everything from 'The Hills' to her website Hello Giggles. Check out an excerpt below:
"Rossi’s real break came with The Hills. As a talent producer on the show, she had to cajole, calm, listen to, and at times persuade the show’s stars to do things they might not want to do. It was perfect: she was essentially being paid to be friends with people. She and Conrad became particularly tight.
“There was a trust factor,” Rossi says. “Lauren and I are still really close, but I’d be really honest with her. I’d be like, ‘You have to go to the birthday party. You can leave early, but you have to go.’
“The hardest part for me was having to be so emotional. If Lauren was crying, I’d cry. If she and Audrina [Patridge] were going to fight, I’d cry … I was sort of like a double agent. I’d know they were going to fuck with Lauren. I’d know they were going to send Heidi [Montag] in. So I’d tell Lauren, ‘Lauren, something’s going to happen.’ And she would trust that so much more.”
Working on The Hills, Rossi says, “I was always nervous. Everything that could go wrong was on me.”
