Heidi Montag Ends Two-Year Estrangement With Her Mom!

Two years ago, Heidi Montag and her mom, Darlene Egelhoff, were in a very dark place.
"Heidi and I aren't speaking to each other right now," Egelhoff told Us Weekly on Mother's Day in 2010. "I've been writing to Heidi, trying to reach her, but she's not responding."
he state of their fractured relationship wasn't exactly surprising, given the way Egelhoff reacted to Montag's new face and body when she revealed her new look on The Hills. (The reality star received 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, including a chin reduction, brow lift and breast augmentation.)
"How do I go and say that of course I thought you were more beautiful before? I thought you were younger, I thought you were fresher-looking, I thought you were healthier," Egelhoff told Montag as MTV cameras rolled. "What's done is done, so that's a terrible thing for me to say but, yes, that's how I feel. I felt that you were much more beautiful before and I hope that some of this will fade away."
Montag's husband, Spencer Pratt, 28, also helped drive a wedge between the mother-daughter duo. "She's not god. She didn't make Heidi," Pratt sniped on the May 11, 2010 episode of The Hills. "She's just a vagina!"
Through time, however, Montag and her mother have been able to forgive each other and work towards rebuilding their relationship. And on June 13, 2012, the pair bonded during a wine tasting at the Demetria Estate in California's Santa Ynez Valley. The two women even stripped down for a Swedish massage, giving Montag an excuse to show off her much-talked about body.
These are so staged but I'm glad to see Heidi is finally reconnecting with her family again! I hope it lasts and it's not just another PR stunt...who wants to bet that Spencer is the one behind the camera! ;)

Lauren Conrad's Secret to Success? Balance

These days, Lauren Conrad is one (very) busy lady. The former star of MTV’s “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills” has two successful clothing lines, a fictional book series, and a must-have style guide — with a beauty guide soon to follow. Oh, and then there are all of those television appearances, charity work, and launching her own beauty line based on her awesome beauty blog. So we had to ask her…how does she do it all?
Recessionista: We see you all over the place at book signings, launch parties, television appearances…but then we see photos of you having fun with friends, too — where do you find the time to have a life?
Lauren: Like any working woman it is important to maintain a personal life that is your own and not make life only about work. I find by taking trips with family and friends and spending some quiet time it only helps me with my writing and designing.
R: What kinds of things do you pick up on your travels? Other than fab souvenirs, of course…
L: Traveling can help expose you to different types of people, environments and aesthetics and I find other cultures inspiring to my designs.
R: We couldn’t put down the first book in the Fame Game series…is there more coming? Help a sister out!
L: I have two more books coming out in October of this year. The first is the second in my Fame Game series…
R: …so we’re in luck! What else do you have cooking?
L: In addition I’m releasing Lauren Conrad Beauty. Similar to Lauren Conrad Style, the book is a how-to and everything guide to beauty. It was one of the most time-consuming books I have written but contains such wonderful information and I am really excited to share it with my fans!

Olivia Palermo: City Chic

She's not known to dress down for the cameras.
So it was no surprise when Olivia Palermo stepped out looking stylish as ever as she walked her dog with her boyfriend, Johannes Hueble last weekend.
The former The City star, 26, dressed up in denim shorts and a knitted top with bold accessories for a polished, pulled together look.
Taking to her website on Sunday evening, Olivia blogged: 'Happy Sunday! Today I went bicycle shopping in NYC.
'I am wearing shorts by Ann Taylor, top by Reiss, beaded necklaces by Charming Charlie, bag by Furla, and ballet flats by French Sole.'
In other news, Ms, Palermo was recently named the ambassador of the Maasai Project for Pikolinos. Below Olivia is pictured with Kikanae Ole Pere, the Maasai community leader, showcasing Pikolinos' summer 2012 collection.
