As promised, appeared on "" for the last time at the after-party held right after the season finale aired on MTV Tuesday, July 13. The original star of the reality show turned back her previous statement that it was a fake show, saying she is "proud" as part of it, had "fun" while filming it and never regretted a moment of it.
A season 1 reel was then played, showing Lauren as a bleach blonde, applying for a spot in Teen Vogue. Asked which moment she considered the darkest while working there, Lauren said, "I think that my worst day was, and I feel bad saying it, because she's here now, the day I met Kelly Cutrone and she made me cry." But she quickly clarified, "I love Kelly."
