Season Three of The Hills is out on DVD this week and Season Four premieres in less than a month. To commemorate both momentous occasions, the L.A. Times spoke with Audrina Patridge while she was en route to get her hair done. Really.
LAT: Is Lauren Conrad your friend?
Audrina Patridge: We live together, so yeah, we see each other a lot while the show is taping. Sometimes I see her when it's not.
LAT: But is she your friend outside of The Hills ...
Audrina Patridge: We don't have a lot of the same friends, but we try to reserve one night a week to hang out. In the fourth season, you'll see our fight gets cleared up. Basically, I start doing my own thing separately from her and Lo [Lauren Bosworth], and get busy. But you know, things change and friendships do drift apart. Lauren Conrad and I aren't not friends, we're just not as close as we used to be.
LAT: What about Lo? Do you blame moving in together with her and Lauren for the rift in your friendship?
Audrina Patridge: I do think living in that separate guest house of mine was definitely the cause of the tension between Lauren and me. We were used to being right next to each other in our apartment. I don't really blame Lo, though. She and Lauren have been friends for a long time.
LAT: Do you think you're portrayed accurately on The Hills?
