Audrina Leaves the Door Open For Corey Reconciliation

Audrina’s episode of the Wendy Williams aired this morning.  Leave it to no filter Wendy to ask Audrina about the one topic she doesn’t want to talk about– her mother’s video rant. Wendy even brought up Lauren’s name.  In the show – which Audrina has creative control over – Lauren’s name was edited out of the rant.  Ever the professional, Audrina gave her thoughts on the video, again.

Audrina and Wendy also bonded over dancing with Tony Dovolani and losing Dancing with the Stars.  Also, while Wendy was on Dancing, she stayed at The Palazzo where Audrina and Lauren used to live.

In shocking news, Audrina left the door open on a possible reconciliation with Corey Bohan.  After a bad breakup, Audrina said that in the future, “who knows.  We love each other a lot.”  We wonder what Corey has to say about this?

Audrina is still embracing the bright color trend, wearing sherbet colors on Wendy this morning.  She nicely paired a bright orange skirt with a pink tank top.

Audrina’s Cover Girl Turn

Audrina Patridge

As a former Maxim cover girl, we know she can do sexy shoots, but Audrina is now moving more into the fashion arena as the cover girl for Runway Magazine’s Spring 2011 issue.

Here’s what the magazine had to say about Miss ‘Drina:

It feels like 25-year-old Audrina Patridge has been a regular fixture on the L.A. scene forever. In actuality, it was just over five years ago when the 5’7” stunner started making a name for herself. Like a modern Hollywood fairytale, sometimes a chance poolside spotting can truly catapult a girl to household-name status.

Audiences first met Audrina when she was introduced as Lauren Conrad’s wide-eyed roommate on MTV’s The Hills in 2006. Since her “role” on the popular reality show, fans have watched her morph into one of Hollywood’s most graceful, and refreshingly tolerable, crossover entertainers.

After Audrina appeared in more episodes than any other series regular on The Hills, immersed herself in YOBI.tv’s international web talent search, and waltzed with Tony Dovolani on season 11 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, we were thrilled to get word of her latest collaboration with Mark Burnett and VH1. Set to premiere Sunday, April 17th at 9:00 PM ET/PT on VH1, Audrina will give viewers a more personal look at the balancing act of this burgeoning actress’ professional and personal life.

Recently, our spring cover girl discussed her journey from a small town in California to the #12 spot on Maxim’s Hot 100 List – and essentially reawakening the gold bikini fantasy of every male’s inner Jedi.

Six Members of New “Dancing” Cast Revealed

TMZ was able to confirm more than half of the new cast members on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars as well as which pro dancers they will be paired with.

They are:

  • Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke
  • Lil’ Romeo & Chelsie Hightower
  • Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel
  • Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani
  • Disney star Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas

The other five cast members have been speculated, but not confirmed.  The cast seems pretty boring to us, although we are excited to see Wendy Williams dance.

The full cast will officially be revealed on ABC during The Bachelor tonight.

Stick a Fork in 2010, But What Will We See in 2011?

With 2010 almost at an end, it’s that time of the month again where we sit down and carefully think about what we’ve accomplished this year and what we would like to see happen next year. For 2011, we hope to…

  1. Ask Audrina to hook us up with discount dancing lessons with Tony
  2. Tell Whitney to get Ben out of The Buried Life and into The Actual Life
  3. Encourage Brody to wear something other than XL versions of Avril’s wardrobe
  4. Get a gym referral membership from Kristin
  5. Hear of someone else getting married so that there’s another relationship other than Speidi’s to follow
  6. See Kristin star in “Football Wives”
  7. Pluck JoHotness away from Olivia
  8. Watch Jayde amuse us with more honest paparazzi conversations outside of clubs
  9. Find Lo another boyfriend, stat (we hear Zac Efron is available)
  10. Become BFFs with Lauren, or at least watch her new movie

What are your new year’s resolutions?

Happy New Year, Hills2Citiers!

Audrina is Too Sick to Attend “Dancing” Finale

Audrina won’t be missing much.  This season of Dancing with the Stars has made a mockery of true talent competitions.

Still, considering that Audrina was one of the most talented dancers this season, we’re sad to hear she’s too sick to attend the big finale event, which some are speculating may be too close to call right now.

“I’m miserable at home in bed today, and super bummed that I can’t be there for the finale or wrap party tonight,” Patridge told PEOPLE from her Los Angeles home Tuesday morning. “I was excited to see everyone and looking forward to one last dance with Tony – he’s been the best partner ever!”

Tony received word yesterday that Audrina had caught the flu on Sunday at couldn’t attend the finale.  Tony was understandably heartbroken.

We’re sure Audrina will have her TV glued to ABC tonight to watch the results live, or just go on twitter to see the East Coast tweeters spill the beans three hours early!  Get well soon, Audrina!

Fashion Fauxfile- Audrina Patridge

Audrina's Jimmy Kimmel Look

On Wednesday, October 27, Audrina was on Jimmy Kimmel Live with her Dancing with the Stars partner, Tony Dovolani. We really loved her look that night, so decided to find some similar items online that you (and us too of course) can use to get a little bit of Audrina-goodness into your wardrobe.

We’ve used a mix of designer and high street pieces, so you can splurge on the essentials and save on the trend items.  Save a little on the leopard print top by Topshop, the Bandage Mini Skirt (which is very Herve Leger) is from ArdenB and you can splurge on the Jimmy Choo gladiator heels at Bergdorf Goodman. We also found some fantastic accessories for you – a Lanvin lizard & python cuff from net-a-porter, a vintage skinny belt from Topshop, a pyramid cross two finger ring (very rock & roll) from Alex & Chloe and the simple heart locket from Forever 21.

Start shopping girls – and don’t forget to show us what you got!  Also, have any looks you’d like us to create a Fauxfile for?  Let us know below.

Tony Joins Republicans in Support of Bristol

Audrina Patridge’s former Dancing with the Stars partner Tony Dovolani is supporting Bristol Palin after heavy media criticism, at the KIIS FM Gifting and Broadcast Suite on Friday, November 19th.

“I’m excited for [Bristol]. Everyone always says to me, ‘How can we get an everyday average person on the show?’ And I feel like she represents that. I’m glad that she made it to the finals, I congratulate her.”

Tony also said he would be happy if Bristol won the show. “Why wouldn’t she have a chance to win? To me, I hope the person that deserves it the most wins.”

While his words may raise some eyebrows with Audrina’s fans, it’s great Tony can swallow his pride and support his former competition!

Make Way for Bristol Palin’s “Dancing” Upset

Brandy’s elimination from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday, November 16th has been the most shocking exit of the season, and Brandy herself is still in shock.

“I am numb. I mean, I gave it everything I had. And I don’t have any regrets at all. I’m so proud of me, and I say that humbly.”

Brandy’s dancing partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy is saddened, but said it was “unfair” to discuss whether her elimination was the most shocking exit of the season as there were several other contestants who didn’t deserve to go.

“Tony’s elimination with Audrina was shocking and Rick Fox’s elimination was shocking — and think back to Mario Lopez back in the day … I feel like every season there are a couple of shocking eliminations.”

Always the trooper, Brandy is determined to take the exit in her stride and is thankful she was given the opportunity to star on the show in the first place.

“I just wanted people to enjoy our dancing and be inspired,” she said. “That’s why I have no regrets. I can walk away knowing that I gave everything that I had to give to this competition, and it feels really good to know that you guys are behind me.”

We have to say that Brandy did not deserve to get eliminated as she’s consistently been at the top of the judges score boards. We guess the Hockey Moms of America have more power than we could ever imagine. Cough cough Bristol Palin.

It’s becoming ever more clear, that Bristol is likely going to win.  We believe what many are saying.  Dancing with the Stars has gone political.  We doubt that people have fallen so in love with Bristol, who doesn’t have the most likable personality.  Not that she’s not a great girl, she just doesn’t come off as friendly.  So if America hasn’t fallen for Bristol and they haven’t fallen for her dancing (that’s a given!), it must be a love affair with her mom, right?  We understand the power of the vote, but we also understand the concept of rewarding the best dancer in a dance competition.

Audrina and Tony Say Good Morning to America

Vodpod videos no longer available.

After the news of their elimination broke, Audrina and Dancing with the Stars partner Tony Dovolani have been hitting the news circuit lately to discuss the major upset, as the pair were favored to be one of the strongest teams this season. They are, no doubt, extremely disappointed at the surprise decision. Audrina, especially, was emotional as she took to her Twitter the morning after on Wednesday, October 27.

“Could not sleep at alll… About to head to hair and make-up for good morning america in a couple hours”

Audrina explained further about how left-field this was on Good Morning America.

“We were baffled Monday night after what the judges said. I still don’t understand. I’m really sad to be off the show. I just know that I had so much fun, this entire experience. I felt like I was really pushing it and trying to give more character, but I guess I couldn’t tap into that.”

Tony remained positive and said that having Audrina as a partner was “like a breath of fresh air. We had a blast through the entire process. We left with a smile on our face.”

We’ll miss you both!
