Audrina Patridge was born in Placentia, California, and grew up in nearby Yorba Linda. After moving to Los Angeles, she began working as a receptionist at Quixote Studios. She joined the MTV reality series The Hills when she became friends with Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad, and her roommate Heidi Montag. Patridge went on to become one of the more recognizable faces in the series, appearing from the second to sixth seasons of the show.
On the back of her success on The Hills, Patridge launched her Hollywood career, making her acting debut on the straight-to-DVD film Into The Blue 2: The Reef. Her first major film, Sorority Row, was also released in 2009. Patridge also recently joined the ABC series Dancing with the Stars, becoming one of the more popular couples until her surprise elimination in the sixth week.
Patridge has since been slated to appear in a reality series called Audrina, which documents her life after starring on The Hills. She then appeared on the film Take Me Home Tonight and the YOBI.tv "Dream Maker" webseries.
