J-14 hung out with Lo Bosworth right before The Hills' finale aired live this week, and we got all the scoop on how she really feels about the end of this season and live without Lauren Conrad -- on camera.
J-14: What were you most excited for in the finale?
Lo Bosworth: I'm really excited for Audrina [Patridge]. She's going to have some definite closure in her life -- a long time coming, so I'm really proud of her. We got so much closer this season, so I totally back her decision.
J-14: Was it weird not working with Lauren this season?
Lo: We live together, so from the beginning we had this personal life that was always the same. That hasn't changed at all. Our work atmosphere has changed -- we started filming Laguna Beach when we were still in high school! For me it's more about making new friendships this season, and I'm so much closer to Audrina and Stephanie [Pratt] now. It makes me comfortable to go to work with them because for a few weeks there, I had that new kid at school syndrome, like when you lose your best friend. But I've become a lot closer with the other girls so it's still really nice.
J-14: How did you deal with some of the criticism that comes from being on a reality show?
Lo: We have so many amazing fans, but we have just as many people that think we are a joke. I don't like to get caught up in all the drama because I don't want people to see me that way. I went to UCLA. I'm normal. I stay out of it because I want a future like after The Hills.
