“People were like ‘You have fake boobs!’ And I’m like, ‘No I don’t, but thanks. I take that as a compliment!’”

Audrina Patridge
By E.C. Gladstone

Life as a reality television star means having to constantly reveal yourself. But as The Hills’ Audrina Patridge realized recently, sometimes things can get a little too revealing. Earlier this year, Patridge had to face the embarrassment of not one, but two nude photo shoots being leaked over the internet—and people believing that Audrina was personally responsible.

“I am not an attention whore,” the 23-year-old starlet insists today. “I’m not going to release naked photos of myself just to get attention. I’d rather get different attention and be respected.”

That may come in time. But first, Patridge has to clear the air about those pics.

“I was just out of high school,” Patridge explains of the first session, which include shots of a young Patridge in a Catholic school girl skirt, and little else. “They were never supposed to be seen.” The second, more tasteful, but still revealing, series was done only last December. “One of my good friends who is a makeup artist, it was her friend who was the photographer, “ Audrina explains. “’It’ll be like a Maxim thing,’” she says he told her. “It was for a European agency. But he ended up selling all of the photos I had never seen, the photos that you think get deleted, because they show a bit of nipple or something.

“It’s so crazy how once you’re a celebrity in the spotlight, what people will do for money,” says Patridge, both unashamed and uncompromised.“Where they act like your best friend to your face and they’re ‘always there for you’–they will turn on you in a second.”

Still, what’s perhaps most interesting about Audrina is how little the controversy has affected her overall outlook. Meeting her at a Hollywood event this past March, I was impressed by her charm, candor and class. She gave no indication that she was facing an almost constant barrage of criticism for the photos, which had just come out.

“People were like ‘You have fake boobs!’” Patridge says now, with a smile in her voice. “And I’m like, ‘No I don’t, but thanks. I take that as a compliment!’”

Not everything Audrina has to hear about, though, is so complimentary. If it seems like The Hills girls lead a charmed life on their MTV “reality” show, Patridge is here to tell that there is a dangerous undertow to the wave of fame.

“It’s so surreal, all the paparazzi and all the questions, and everybody knowing your business ,”she says, sharing laughs about meeting Brazilian fans in the Miami airport, and getting stopped by grandmothers with advice in the mall. “There’s rumors all the time. Somebody asked me if I was pregnant! Uh, do I look pregnant?

“We’re constantly being judged on everything we do, say, wear–everything,” she continues. “I’ve never watched a show and then gone on the internet and been like ‘She has big teeth,’ or this or that. Who are these people?”
