Give Lauren Conrad's camp an A for effort, because they are undeterred in their quest to make her seem like a fun, oats-sowing single gal in the wake of her summer split from Kyle Howard. Following dead-on-arrival rumors linking her to Derek Hough and Colton Hayes, the starlet, 25, is now being paired with "Gossip Girl" eye candy Chace Crawford.
Seems Us Weekly spied the longtime pals "making out" at a Los Angeles house party on Oct. 29.
"There's always been an attraction between them," says a source. "[But] Lauren is just enjoying herself. She's not taking anything too seriously!" Reps for both blondes deny any saliva was exchanged.
