As one of the web's leading purveyors of The Hills gossip, we admittedly weren't too crazy about Audrina Patridge when we first got to know her. We pegged her for a Kristin Cavallari-like alpha girl - not a positive presence in LC's life.
We thought she wasn't being too genuine at times, and wasn't super nice to Lauren Conrad. But in Season 2, the two got to be pretty close friends, with Audrina even moving into her apartment during The Hills season finale.
Here, they're seen at the Celebrity Grand Slam Paddle Jam, an event that drew many hip young stars together. It's cool that Audrina Patridge and LC seem to be building a real friendship.
Good riddance to Heidi and Spencer (Prontag? Spiedi?).
