NEW Couple Alert! Lauren Conrad and Derek Hough!

What a cute couple, right?!  Lauren Conrad (The Hills) and Derek Hough (Dancing With The Stars) tried to sneak in a date to the Playhouse nightclub in Los Angeles last night, but of course the paparazzi caught them.  You can’t hide from them in that hot spot!

How serious are things?  Since it’s the early stages, I’d say they are just having fun, but I can definitely see them getting serious.  Lauren has been single since June, so she’s definitely had enough time to get back on the dating horse.

What do you think?  Will these two stay together and make it serious?
