As reported yesterday, Lauren Conrad has been the target of many rumors after attending a charity event and supposedly not coming through with her end of the bargain by ditching out early.

Well, The Hills reality star is setting the online gossip-mongers straight in the most efficient way possible - with a blog post, of course!

"I agreed to pose for the cover of the magazine, host the event, do press at the event and donate clothing, all of which I did. I was not aware of any other commitments," said Conrad. "I was not paid to attend the event...I also made a voluntary donation to the Humane Society for more then the cost of my airfare so there would be no expense to the charity." Conrad also went on to express how "hurt and disappointed" she was with the woman in charge of the event, Wendy Diamond, for going to the press attacking her "with untrue statements."

So now it's Conrad's word versus Diamond's. Who do you believe? Or do you think the whole thing is just one huge miscommunication that got blown out of proportion? - Gina DiNunno
