Breanna Christine Conrad (born August 23, 1989) is an American television personality and fashion designer. Born and raised in Laguna Beach, California, she attended Laguna Beach High School. Breanna is the younger sister of Lauren Conrad, who came to prominence after being cast in the reality television series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and its spin-off The Hills, which documented the lives of her and her friends.
During its third season, the former program was revamped to showcase an entirely new group of current students. Consequentially, the younger Conrad was hired as part of the replaced main cast. However, the casting adjustments proved unsuccessful, and the program was cancelled upon the conclusion of the season.
Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County
Breanna Conrad first appeared on MTV's Laguna Beach in season one during a family dinner. After the show's success in the first two seasons, MTV renewed the franchise for season three with an new core cast, including Conrad.
One of the plot lines on season three of Laguna Beach followed the relationship between Conrad and her childhood best friend Raquel Donatelli. Conrad and Donatelli had a falling-out sometime prior to the start of season three. For the better part of the filming, Donatelli was close friends with Tessa Keller, season three's main character and narrator. Conrad and Keller did not get along with one another, in part because they were attracted to the same guys. Conrad was usually shown with other friends, including Lexie Contursi and Kylie Barela. In episode four Conrad and Donatelli went to lunch and talked, but they did not make up and resume their friendship until the final episode of the season. As of December 2006, Conrad and Donatelli continue to be good friends.
Laguna Beach was not renewed for a fourth season; according to Breanna's official MySpace page, she had already decided not to return for the projected fourth season of Laguna Beach before the show's cancellation.
