Lo Bosworth is really coming in to her own! Once known just as Lauren Conrad’s best friend, she’s now a businesswoman in her own right! Hollyscoop caught up with Lo for an EXCLUSIVE interview, and she gave us the scoop on her upcoming book, her future in TV and her secret to getting so skinny!
Her latest foray is with Nivea, who approached her few weeks ago to participate in their “Goodbye Cellulite” challenge. She tells Hollyscoop, “I was a little hesitant at first. Nobody wants to go out there and say they have cellulite. It turns out that 9 out of 10 women do. I’m just going to be brave and say yes its true, and there is something you can do about it.”
Bosworth applies the Nivea anti-cellulite lotion first thing in the morning, and then again at night. She’s also giving her fans updates via her Twitter account @LoBosworth. But she says the real results come by hitting the gym! “In terms of fitness, I already do cardio up the Ying-Yang,” she tells us. “I spin; its 500 calories in an hour and do that 2-3 times a week. I have also added kettle bells.”
As for her other big project in the works, Lo has a new website coming out, as well as a book. She says, “I’m launching a digital media company next week on July 13th. It is called the lodown.com. It is a lifestyle and advice website. We are talking about relationships, health and fitness, beauty, style the works. We are really trying to create a community and to create a conversation that people are interested in having. We are not dictating, it’s a friendly place at the lodown. We are trying to make friends.”
Lo says creating her own company came easy to her, and was the next logical step in her life. “For me it’s all about the business. I went to school, I have the tools and I am planning on using them to the fullest degree,” she explains.
In addition, Bosworth is turning her philosophy into a book, which will also be called the Lodown, which she says is “a relationship guide for girls,” and comes out in January. She hopes it will be turned into a movie or TV series, like it’s rumored that Lauren’s series will. Lo adds, “I think that I would like to give advice in relationships. The things that people have questions about. For some reason I’m able to do that job. I hope people start to see me in that way.”
Sounds like a lot of work and no play, but Lo intends on relaxing reeeeaaaal soon. “Immediately when the show goes off I am going on vacation. I am really excited and then just back to work, back to the daily grind. I have this incline that I am going to be busier than I have ever been, it’s a little overwhelming but I’m really excited about what the future holds,” she says.
Above all, Bosworth is thankful she’s remained the humble girl she always was. “It’s just that I am normal,” she explains. “I just live my life the way that I want too.”
As for how she avoided becoming like Lindsay Lohan in this town? Lo tells us, “I don’t really think it’s a by-product of Hollywood. I think you can fly under the radar and live the life that you want to live. It’s easier to have a longer career when you are comfortable with yourself and stay true to yourself. You don’t get wrapped up in all the bull that this town produces.”
“Stay healthy and happy” is her message to jail-bound Lohan. “I tend to have faith in people more than anything else. I think she is going to be fine.”
Let’s hope Lindsay can learn to be a little like a new favorite The Hills castmate. Thanks for the Lodown, girl! Check out our exclusive interview below!
