Brody Jenner and Ryan Cabrera "have had some issues in the past."
Or at least since The Hills writers decided to rewrite history, anyway.
Frankie Delgado and Brody Jenner, in a completely unstaged preview from tomorrow's episode, can be seen gossiping about Ryan and whether Brody will try to hit it with Audrina Patridge when the crew all meets at an upcoming party.
While he doesn't go into much detail about said issues, Brody and Frankie do attempt to trash talk Cabrera, but their jokes are as off as his jumpshot.
"It's cool that they're together and stuff because they have a lot in common," Jenner says. "They can borrow each other's jeans ... hair gel." Clank.
A Brody Jenner love triangle is brewing. Does anyone care?
Audrina Patridge and Ryan Cabrera have been together for a few months now ... and we know he's hooked up with her in the past, but watching Brody pretend to care so much about their relationship just comes off as awkward here.
Come on, Hills writers. Can't you feed these guys some better lines? Please try, or just leave the trash talk to Kristin Cavallari, she's the only one with the versatility and track record to do it convincingly week in and week out.
