When MTV’s reality show “The Hills” hit the screens in 2006, it was an instant cult hit. The show followed the personal and professional lives of several young adults living in Los Angeles and catapulted cast members such as Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad, Spencer Pratt and Brody Jenner to stardom. While “The Hills” rebooted in 2019, many of its stars have since moved on to other things. Conrad – who shares two sons with her husband William Tell – has kept busy raising her children, running her non-profit organization The Little Market and designing her clothing line LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s. Conrad’s former bestie, Patridge, has appeared on other reality shows and even briefly starred in her own series, aptly titled “Audrina,” according to Insiders. She also married and divorced BMX rider Corey Bohan, with whom she shares a daughter.
Fans may recall that Patridge and Conrad lived in the same apartment complex on “The Hills,” though it seems their friendship hasn’t stood the test of time. Patridge told ET in 2019 that “no one really got spoken to [Lauren] since the finale,” adding that the cast “everything went [their] totally separate ways” after filming wrapped in 2010. Still, it seems like things are cordial [a] Disney on Ice event and we caught up for a second,” Patridge told the OK! Magazine. But after years of distance, the surface-level interaction might be all that’s left of these former besties’ relationship.
Audrina Patridge called Lauren Conrad ‘controlling’
On July 26, Audrina Patridge released her memoir, Choices: To The Hills And Back Again, which details everything from the behind-the-scenes secrets of The Hills to the end of her relationship with Lauren Conrad. “Unfortunately, one connection that didn’t last was my relationship with Lauren, who doesn’t really speak to anyone from the old cast,” Patridge wrote (via Page Six). Partridge recalled the occasion when she moved out of the apartment she once shared with Conrad and Lo Bosworth, citing “riots … which we couldn’t talk about on camera at the time.” Patridge went on to call Conrad “controlling.” Patridge added, “When you’re in her circle, you have to do and say what Lauren does or says. Otherwise you are out.”
A source of potential tension between the women was Patridge’s tumultuous relationship with Justin “Bobby” Brescia, chronicled in The Hills. As the cameras rolled, Brescia and Patridge didn’t get along. Brescia told the Daily Mail that he felt Conrad was “fucking twisted”. [by fame]”She wasn’t the most down-to-earth,” she added, especially compared to other co-stars like Heidi Montag. For her part, Patridge wrote in Choices that Conrad betrayed her when it came to Brescia. “When Justin and I broke up, Lauren met him in Vegas and according to a good friend of mine, she ended up dating him,” claimed you. It doesn’t look like Conrad and Patridge will be fixing fences any time soon.
