The Hills bestaat bijna 10 jaar(!) - jep, we worden oud - en om die mijlpaal te vieren beantwoordde Audrina Patridge een paar prangende vragen over de show op haar website. Ze vertelt dat ze op Twitter nog steeds non-stop vragen over de show krijgt, en besloot ze maar eens op te helderen. Zo laat ze weten dat heus niet de héle show nep was, maar er waren wat 'blurred lines':
'There were a lot of blurred lines. In the beginning, it was about 4 girls becoming friends, living in LA, having fun, dating, and working and that was pretty genuine. But towards the end of 2nd season and into the 3rd is when it started becoming more and more blurred, especially when the men became a big part of the show. Everything kind of shifted and it only escalated when Lauren left because they needed to bring in new people and scenarios and manipulated situations. It turned into a real/fake version of our lives.'
Ook vertelt ze of die verhaallijn, waarbij ze dacht dat Justin Bobby en Lauren Conrad een fling hadden, echt was. En het antwoord zal je verbazen:
'That was actually a real rumour. A mutual friend of ours called me and told me that he was there and didn’t want to tell me but knew he wouldn’t be able to look me in the eye if he didn’t come clean. I was devastated and couldn’t believe it at first. Then, neither of them would call me back or respond to my texts and the producers, of course, wanted me to talk about it on camera, which took some pushing. That friend has since passed and I really don’t care about what happened anymore. I’m happy where I am now and the past is the past!'
En nee, ze heeft geen contact meer met Lauren. Alleen met Kristin, Heidi en Brody. Wél heeft Justin Bobby zijn excuses aan haar aangeboden:
'There were some very blurred lines with us and I’ll spare you the details. He did apologize to me years ago for the way he treated me on the show and how everything played out. Justin has a good heart and I wish him the best!'
Enne, of Audrina nou zelf ook met Spencer heeft gedatet? NEE:
'Absolutely NOT!! That was the first moment I knew I could no longer trust the producers. I was on my way to the airport with friends for a Vegas trip and they called me that morning asking me to stop at Pinkberry on the way and said it would only take a few minutes. I did and they had me sit at the table by myself outside and I had no idea what the heck was going on. Then all of a sudden I see Spencer walking up with roses!!!!! I was like omg your kidding me!!!! I gotta go….
Soon after that night, we headed to a new club Heidi was working at and we were all in a group, but Spencer and I were held back so we would be seen walking in together. I was not into the fabricated drama at all, but it sucks viewers in and people love watching that stuff.'
Audrina is inmiddels heel gelukkig met Corey, die we ook in The Hills een paar keer langs zagen komen. Ze verwachten hun eerste kindje samen:
'We kept in contact and reunited toward the end of The Hills. I didn’t want to throw him into the drama because I knew he was a good guy and he had no idea what he would be getting himself into. Corey actually went with me to the finale of The Hills and we became a solid couple shortly after.'
