Entertainment behind the scenes
Reality star Audrina Patridge from MTV show “The Hills” (that’s her on the left in the photo with co-star Lauren Conrad) has a new project – catching a couple who Patridge says broke into her home and burglarized her.
Patridge on Tuesday posted surveillance video at her Web site of a man and woman walking around in her home and grabbing a pair of bags. This comes after Patridge on Monday said she came home the night before and discovered that she had been burglarized. “Most of the items are replaceable, but they took off with a few very sentimental things too,” Patridge wrote.
In the surveillance video, the man and the woman do not appear all too menacing. At one point, they come across something that appears to surprise them, and the man doubles over with the kind of exclamation usually seen in teen girls. Then the two scamper off together out of the camera’s frame.
On her Web posting, Patridge has given the number of the Los Angeles Police Department in the hopes that anyone who can recognize the man and woman tip off investigators.
Has Lauren Conrad had enough of life as a reality TV star?
“It’s coming to a point where I love this show so much, but I’m ready to kind of walk away…I’ve been doing it for five years now. Five years on TV is a really, really long time,” Conrad, 22, said of life on MTV’s “The Hills” and its predecessor “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County”.
Asked by Extra about the media attention on her relationships, Conrad said; “It makes it more difficult. It’s more difficult when not only everyone knows about your problems, but they make them worse because things escalate and things get twisted…. It’s hard to have an actual friendship be torn apart in the media.”
With Monday’s premiere titled “We’ll Never Be Friends,” it was clear that the fourth-and possibly final-season of MTV’s “The Hills” would not disappoint in the drama department. When we left off with the girls, the roommate situation with Lauren, Audrina and Lo was on thin ice. Last season’s final episode ended with Audrina telling a tear-jerked Lauren about how Lo had come between their friendship, and Monday’s season premiere ended much like that last episode.
Lo ditched Audrina’s birthday party to play with a puppy, and Audrina was understandably mad. When Lo tried to smooth things over, Audrina would have none of it, finally telling Lo: “We’ll never be friends!”
Reality TV star and fledgling fashion designer Lauren Conrad, 22, told celebrity television show “Entertainment Tonight” that her reality program “The Hills,” which will premiere its fourth season on Monday, will have plenty of personal drama in its new season – with a couple reconciliations thrown in the mix.
The show, which follows the lives of young women in Los Angeles, will be all about real emotions, at least as far as Conrad is concerned because the California native said she can’t act.
“I tried (acting) when I first moved to L.A.,” Conrad said to ET. “I took a couple of classes. Awful. Any opportunity you have to make fun of yourself I think is fun to do, but acting is an art and I don’t think I have a talent there.”
Maybe it doesn’t matter. “The Hills” is, after all, a “realilty” show and while she admittedly can’t act, Conrad truly has her eye on designing clothes. She will attend her first Emmy Awards ceremony on Sept. 21, but for her acting. Conrad is designing gowns worn by Emmy presenters.
ET’s interview with Conrad airs on Wednesday night.

After her clothing line was yanked from all Los Angeles’ Kitson boutique stores, “The Hills” star Lauren Conrad is getting a new chance at showcasing her fashion design skills in a major way. The 22-year-old has been tapped to design a couture gown for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards trophy girls who hand out U.S. television’s top honors.
“When the show approached me, I was so excited,” Conrad said in an email to Reuters. “I love designing dresses and I can’t wait to see my own designs on the Primetime Emmy Awards. The dress will be elegant yet simple with a Lauren Conrad Collection vibe.”
