Fiction book based on Reality TV

Lauren Conrad has snagged a film deal for her debut novel, LA Candy. This is going to be one of those classic, but hopefully good, versions of a classic Hollywood story.

Lauren Conrad's LA CandyConrad's LA Candy is loosely based on her experiences growing up in the shadow of Hollywood and the ending up on not one, but two of the most successful reality television shows of all time.

The pop culture landscape would not be the same without Laguna Beach: The Real OC and The Hills.

Believe it or not, Conrad's prose has captured the fancy of millions as LA Candy has made itself comfortable on the New York Times bestseller list for three-and-a-half months!

The 23-year-old starlet has scored a deal with Temple Hill Entertainment, according to Variety, that is worth somewhere in the six figures.

The news is beyond fabulous for Conrad as she has already admitted she plans two more novels in the series.

"Lauren, who became an icon in that reality show world, came to us with a structure of how to tell the story in an interesting fashion that was separate and apart from the book. We loved her take.
