Jason Wahler Reaches Out To Lauren Conrad After 1 Year of Sobriety

Jason Wahler has been clean one year and says he's a changed man. Now, The Hills and Laguna Beach alum Jason Wahler – who had a string of drunk driving arrests and stints in rehab – is making strides with his personal life as well.
"I wanted to make amends with Lauren [Conrad]," he says of his ex-girlfriend. "She was a big part of my life and there's stuff that happened in the past with my drunken ways that I needed to address."
Wahler, 24, currently works in Costa Mesa, Calif., at National Therapeutic Services as a mentor and sober companion. "It feels good to give back," says Wahler, who contacted Conrad recently after feeling more comfortable in his recovery.
"She's an incredible person and so supportive of anything I do to stay clean," he says. "But the timing had to be right before I reached back out."
Conrad, who was "impressed" with Wahler's achievement in sobriety, was "more shocked at what I'm doing for work," says the former reality star.
"I needed to humble myself a lot," he says. "A lot of those [Laguna] people knew me before all the bad stuff, and thankfully I've been able to rekindle a lot of my old friendships."
So will Wahler return to Hollywood now that he's sober? He says he'll never go back to the day-and-night party scene of Los Angeles, but he did celebrate his sobriety last week with a bash at 31 Ten Lounge in Santa Monica, Calif.
Wahler's Celebrity Rehab costars Janice Dickinson, Jeremy London, Jason Davis and Leif Garrett showed their support and attended the party, which was sponsored by Sober is Sexy and Body Armor. His new girlfriend of a few weeks, Ashley Slack, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, was also there to support Wahler.
Says Wahler of his new life, "I think being clean and having my boundaries and my limitations, I have a much clearer head."
I'm happy to hear he finally got his act together!
I thought it would be fun to include a few photos of Lauren and Jason in happier days. These were promo pics for the first season of the Hills and were taken in 2006. Cute, huh? :)

Kristin Cavallari Isn't Letting Her Engagement Breakup Keep Her Down

Newly single Kristin Cavallari puts on a smile as she runs a few errands on August 3, 2011. The former "Hills" star isn't letting her engagement breakup keep her down, happily going about life as usual.

In light of her devastating breakup with Jay Cutler, we can't even imagine how tough it's been for Kristin to keep it together in front of the media, especially since Life & Style magazine recently released pics of her trying on wedding dresses! On July 29th, the newly single beauty ate dinner at STK then headed out to Trousdale nightclub, where she met up with--you'll love this--Ben Savage. (Yes, of "Boy Meets World")
K-Cav tried to sneak out of the West Hollywood hot spot unnoticed, but those omnipresent paps were of course there to take pics of, er, K-Sav. Breakups are tough, so we're definitely not blaming the girl if she's chosen to cope via a rebound!

Anerson Cooper Calls Out Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt

If we didn't love Anderson Cooper before, we sure as hell do now!
Last night on AC360, Anderson inducted Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag onto his RidicuList. We couldn't even begin to be as clever as he was with his schtick, so rather than even try, we'll just share it with you so you can join in on the laughs!
Watch as Anderson SLAMS Speidi in the clip (above).
There really is nothing sexier than a man who in the same breathe can argue the war in Iraq and the downfall of fake celebrities.
Hilarious! : )
