Patridge grew up in Yorba Linda, California. In August 2008, she purchased a house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Dell neighborhood. On February 22, 2009, Patridge's home was robbed by two unmasked thieves.
In March 2008, nude pictures of Patridge were published online. "They were taken when I was just out of high school and beginning to model", Patridge has explained. "I was naïve, overly trusting of people, and inexperienced."
Patridge alongside Heidi Montag are mentioned in the 2010 UK number-one single "Pass Out" by Tinie Tempah
On May 28, 2009, she confirmed during an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest that she was leaving The Hills to star in her own reality-based program documenting her life outside the Hills. Her final episode of the series aired on December 1, 2009, but surprisingly, she signed on for the sixth season of The Hills while her new show, The Audrina Show, produced by Mark Burnett, set to air on MTV in mid 2010, was put on hold due to The Hills.
After graduating from El Dorado High School in Placentia, Calif., Patridge, an aspiring model and actress, is approached by MTV producers of Laguna Beach spin-off, The Hills, starring good-girl Lauren Conrad. "The executive producer came up and started talking to me about a new show. He said it was kind of like Sex and the City and he really liked what I had going on," Patridge tells Sydney's MX newspaper. "They had me go in and meet the other directors and they all loved me. It just fell in my lap, but it was good timing. It was fate."
Needless to say, we'll take Audrina Patridge over Heidi Montag. But soon enough, Audrina and LC had their own problems. Eventually, Audrina moved out of Lauren's guest house. Oh well. She got her own house and that's probably for the best!
Audrina has a job at Epic Records, as shown on The Hills, but aspires to be an actress and model as well.
She has two sisters, Samantha and Casey Patridge. Casey just had a baby with her fiance and has many tattoos!
In March 2008, Audrina became the subject of scandal when naked pics of her were leaked online (as we mentioned earlier). She admitted that they were, in fact, Audrina Patridge nude photos and that she had tried out for Playboy at age 19. Sure. We bet they were "leaked" accidentally. Mmm hmm.
Hopefully she can rise above the scandal (or use it to her advantage if that's what she's after) and go back to being the good friend we know on The Hills.
