Audrina Patridge Hopes Teen Burglars "Face the Consequences"
Audrina Patridge is happy that a group of celeb-obsessed teens - who have been charged with felony first-degree residential burglary for robbing her and a slew of other stars - have finally been busted.
"I know they're trying to justify what they did by saying it was a mistake, but they need to face the consequences," the reality star, 24, told Usmagazine.com at the I Dream Of Audrina" party at the nightclub Dusk in Atlantic City, NJ, over the weekend.
Alexis Neiers, Courtney Ames, Diana Tamayo and Roy Lopez Jr. -- who range in age from 18 to 27 -- are suspected of stealing more than $3 million in designer clothes and jewelry. Prosecutors also added five burglary counts against Nicholas Prugo and have named Rachel Lee, 18, as another suspect. (Prosecutors have declined to file charges against her pending further investigation.)
All the suspects are due in court next month.
Los Angeles police officer Brett Goodkin has said the teens repeatedly went after celebs because "they thought it was fun, kind of an adrenaline rush."
Patridge told Us she doesn't by the robbers' excuses that they made an error in judgment.
"It's not a mistake if you do it more than once," she told Us.
Meanwhile, Patridge said she isn't sure she is leaving The Hills after all. She previously told Us that she thought was leaving the show after the current season.
"I don't really know, but everything is being negotiated and renegotiated," she said. "Right now I'm really looking forward to my new show."
But she told Us she has her own upcoming show to look forward to. "It's going to be a whole different tone," she said. "It's very raw and real. It's not a soap documentary like The Hills. It's more about Hollywood, what really goes on behind the cameras."
Since splitting with Australian BMX rider Corey Bohan, she said she is "not even worrying about" finding a guy right now. "I'm just kind of focusing on myself," she said. "I have my family and my friends that I've been with, and I don't want to just date anybody. I'm very picky now, and I'm not just going to date anyone."
She said she loves "manly men, but also [guys who have] a fashion sense. He has to have respect, a good sense of humor and be very spontaneous." She said they also have to know "when not to be funny and when not to cross the line."
