The bad news: The former “Hills” star and her boyfriend of three years Kyle Howard have gone their separate ways. The good news: For the next four months, Lauren Conrad will have a personal column for Forbes to talk about her experiences as a young entrepreneur. On top of running multiple clothing lines, she is writing her own book and managing two websites. Here are a few highlights of her first article that went live last week:

"Many of you are probably wondering why you should take a person like me seriously as an entrepreneur. For me, it’s pretty clear: I run two clothing lines, two web sites and a book franchise on top of directly managing my brand and endorsement deals. I’ve made a career out of allowing cameras to capture my personal life but that doesn’t make me “just another reality star” looking to start a clothing line. People often forget that I am a person who was documented for more than six years while pursuing a dream to make it in the fashion industry. The friends, the drama, the adventures, unfolded around that."
