Heidi Montag loves fame, and everything it has to offer -- until now.

A year since The Hills' finale, the cosmetically-enhanced blonde has stayed out of the spotlight. And my, how fast time flies!

Heidi is putting herself right back in it by starring on the new reality show, On Reality Food, alongside ex-Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, and ex-Real Housewife of New Jersey, Danielle Straub.

We caught up her Wednesday evening at the opening of new a restaurant, Lemon Basket, in West Hollywood, along with some other celebs (click through to see who else showed up).

Heidi recently told reporters about her desire to maintain her privacy being back in Hollywood:

    "From now on, I'm going to keep my life a little more private ... I enjoy my privacy. I'm just kind of getting my feet back into Hollywood."

For future reference, Ms. Montag, if you enjoy your privacy, don't do a reality show!
