With shooting of the fourth season of The Hills about to conclude in a few weeks, Audrina Patridge is addressing speculation about the show’s future.
“There is going to be a fifth season,” Patridge said. “We just found out.”
Patridge, who recently filmed thriller Sorority Row with Rumer Willis, adds that despite all the drama she and her co-stars have a good time filming the show.
“We have fun with each other and we’ve stuck it out this long, so we might as well do another one," Patridge said, admitting that The Hills' cast members' divergent interests have made filming difficult in recent months.
“At one point, all of us were like, ‘No, we don’t want to do another season,’ she says. “I wanted to do more movies, and Whitney moved to New York and she’s doing her own spin-off. And Lauren’s dating [My Boys actor] Kyle Howard but he can’t be on the show because he’s on another show, so that makes it hard.”

Something else that wasn’t easy: Recent buzz that Lauren Conrad had a fling with Patridge’s on-and-off loser boyfriend, Justin-Bobby.
“It was really hard - one of his best friends that told me that, and I called Lauren and she hangs up on me,” Patridge says of the (false) rumor.
“And then once I sat them down and talked to them, I was like, ‘Okay, this is all I needed!’ You’ll see it on the show. It was very emotional.”
