Born in 1985 and raised just outside the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in Orange County, Calif., it isn’t a surprise that Audrina Patridge aspired to be an actress and model at a young age.
Best known for her appearances on the MTV reality smash The Hills alongside Lauren Conrad and the gang, the brunette beauty achieved her goal of fame in the forum of reality TV. During her time on the show, she worked as a receptionist at Quixote Studios and at Epic Records.
The reality TV star had multiple high-profile romances chronicled on the small screen. Most notably, Patridge dated Justin Bobby Brescia on and off throughout the series, and courted singer Ryan Cabrera on the sixth and final season.
After the reality show originally came to an end, the California native competed on season 11 of Dancing With the Stars in 2010, teaming up with pro Tony Dovolani. The pair were eliminated in week 8 and came in 7th place overall. The following year, Patridge scored her own Hills spinoff series, Audrina, which was canceled after one season. She then pivoted to a fictional series, starring in YOBI.tv’s Dream Maker, also in 2011.
The Sorority Row actress returned to her reality roots in the intervening years, hosting 1st Look from 2014 to 2015 and starring on the Hills reboot, The Hills: New Beginnings, in 2019.
Patridge became a mom in 2016 when she gave birth to daughter Kirra with then-fiancé Corey Bohan, whom she married that same year and later divorced in 2020. Patridge released her debut memoir, Choices, in July 2022.
