(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
We're just glad she's feeling healthy enough to open up!
The 29-year-old took part in a Q&A with mommy blog Momtastic on Monday where she got pretty candid about the filming process for both Laguna Beach and The Hills.
"Laguna Beach was really our lives being manipulated, [we were] put in situations we never would have been in normally.
I looked at [The Hills] strictly as a job — we filmed three different scenes, three days a week. I had my life on-camera and a completely different life off-camera. I knew the character they wanted me to play, and this time I was game. Since I looked at it as a job, it was fun to play up the villain character."
Still, she may have hated it then, but we don't see her complaining about being famous nowadays!
Just kidding, we love ya, Kris!
