Her world turned upside down by nude photos, Audrina Patridge is responding to the naked pics of her that were leaked onto the Internet Wednesday.
"Regarding the photos that someone released to the public today without my consent, I wanted you to know they were taken when I was just out of high school and beginning to model," Patridge said in a MySpace bulletin.
The sexy shots of Audrina Patridge nude, which were allegedly submitted to (but later rejected by) Playboy, were supposed to be "artistic and not in any way provocative" and "not meant to be seen by the public," she said.
"I was naive, overly trusting and inexperienced," said the 22-year-old star of The Hills. "I thought to be a model you had to be comfortable in front of the camera. I'm not ashamed of these photos, but I don't want my fans to think they have to do what I did. I hope people can learn from my inexperience. It's been almost five years since I posed for that shoot, and during that time I have learned many lessons."
We just hope Lauren Conrad can forgive her... not for the nude pics, but for going behind her back to befriend Heidi Montag again. WTF girl!?
