"This is like... I feel like we're back in high school with this! How long have I been friends with you.... What a bitch!" - Brody Jenner

Ah yes, the sage wisdom of the great Brody Jenner. Try as he did to talk sense into childhood friend Spencer Pratt, he couldn't it get it through the oily one's head to cool it in regards to Brody's rekindled friendship with Lauren Conrad.

Buffoons

As a result, as Brody himself said, "Spencer broke up with me!"

That was the focal point of last night's new episode of The Hills, in which Lauren Conrad helped her ex-boyfriend (and possible friend with benefits) realize that life can actually be (gasp) a lot more fun without Spencer Pratt.

A stunning revelation, we know.

At the episode's onset, however, the focus was on Audrina Patridge and former flame Justin-Bobby (real name Justin Brescia) who had drifted apart in the last episode, only to get back together again in a true reality TV stunner.

Justin-Bobby tells Audrina that he's "hesitant to put labels on things" and wants them to become "best friends" before lovers, then accuses Audrina of being too sensitive.

Riiiight. Lauren Conrad's take? "[Audrina] wasn't being over-sensitive. He was being over-a$$hole!" Said as only Lauren can. You tell her, girl!

Shortly thereafter, at work (yes, she has a job) Heidi Montag learns that Brody and Lauren have been hanging out again from her boss, club promoter Brent Bolthouse... at a staff meeting. Yeah, MTV doesn't stage this show at all.

Heidi was taken aback, and in typical fashion, Spencer reacted to the news with a sneer. Betrayal. It hurts. Almost as much as having to stare at Spencer Pratt's scraggly-ass blonde beard for much of the show. Take a shave, bro.

Meanwhile, at Les Deux, Brody and Lauren party - with her girl Lo and his boy Frankie Delgado. LC then invites herself over for an "after-party" at his condo. Both deny hooking up the next day, calling it just a "friendly sleepover."

Regardless, they're on good terms, and that's plenty enough for Spencer to shun his childhood pal. When Brody dials Spencer up to shoot the $h!t, Pratt rips him a new one for fraternizing with the enemy - and says that makes him the enemy.

Brody tries to explain, and calm him down, but it's a moot point. As we all know, there's no rationalizing with this conniving, insecure, acne-riddled Devil.

You might not know it, but Nicole Scherzinger, the only recognizable or even semi-hot of the Pussycat Dolls, and Audrina Patridge of The Hills have a lot in common.

Nicole Scherzinger is currently dating Talan Torriero, who, like, went to his Laguna Beach prom with Kristin Cavallari, who was totally in, like, the rival clique of Lauren Conrad - who's now Audrina Patridge 's roommate! Woo!

The Hills' fabulous trio - Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port - stripped down to bikinis and had a blast at the beach in Malibu Wednesday.

No word on whether Justin "Bobby" Brescia was on hand, but Audrina sure looks to be having fun, as do her roommate / BFF LC and her co-worker Whitney.

Of course, professional party animal and JV womanizer, Brody Jenner, was also on hand, while Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were very much not.

Check out these photos of Lauren Conrad - whose fall fashion line will drop in just two weeks â€" and her gal pals enjoying some summer fun. They're so cute!

Haters be damned! The Hills' Audrina Patridge couldn't care less if fans of her hit reality show are skeptical of the relationship she's revived with her ex Justin "Bobby" Brescia.

"Of course we have our feuds and everything, but it's fun having him part of the show," says Audrina Patridge, who works at Epic Records when she's not being Lauren Conrad's BFF.

"He is so cute!"

LC hasn't looked too thrilled about Justin Brescia so far, but other pals of the star, who have watched the couple's off-and-on dating for two years now, say they've seen plenty of evidence that the hairstylist, 25, is the one for Audrina.

"The core people around Audrina's life know what Justin-Bobby means to her," says a friend.

"It's not like he's just pursuing her to be on the show ... he is dealing with the show so he can continue to be part of her life."

It's a gesture not lost on Audrina Patridge.

"He is so not used to having the cameras around," she says. "He hates it, but he does it for me."

So should we take Justin-Bobby off the list of boyfriends on The Hills that we can't stand (a list that includes Jason Wahler and Spencer Pratt)?

Tell us what you think.

Monday's episode of The Hills started with LC and pals at beach BBQ thrown by Brody Jenner in Malibu. Once again, it's a tad annoying that we went in knowing he broke his finger during a football game on the beach. But it was, for the most part, entertaining.

The bash, of course, happened on the same weekend that Brody's quote-unquote publicist, Spencer Pratt, was asked by Heidi Montag to go meet her parents in Colorado.

Mostly Plastic

Brody was upset to hear this, and ripped Spencer for going, calling him "married guy" and saying that a true pal "wouldn't flake out on his homies." True dat, yo.

By and large, Spencer did a nice job with Heidi's folks, although we take serious issue with Heidi saying she always wanted a guy like her dad - and that she got that in Pratt. We found Heidi's dad to be a nice, normal guy, thus making this statement really confusing.

Later, Heidi tried at length to justify her love for Pratt, and Spencer himself was awkwardly thrust into the "heart-to-heart" talk with Mr. Montag. Somehow, the evil one utilized his Revenge of the Sith mind-control techniques to seem like a normal human.

Back at the party, Audrina Patridge was having a great time with boyfriend Justin-Bobby. For some reason, she was all about this guy. That is, until he started flirting with other girls, then ditched the event without telling anyone.

He even left Audrina's bike helmet at Brody's. Classy move.

Lauren Conrad then consoled Audrina Patridge after she miraculously realized what the rest of America already knew - that Justin-Bobby is an absolute waste of space.

In the immortal words of LC: "Homeboy wore combat boots ... to the beach!"

Amen. By far the cutest part of the season so far came when a teary-eyed LC and Audrina Patridge began talking about love and boys in front of the fire - having had a few too many drinks at the party - while trading the requisite hugs and supportive comments.

Awwwww. For one scene, The Hills felt like actual reality again. Cute girls drinking too much, talking about feelings and saying how much they love each other after one of them is spurned by a guy! Who hasn't seen this 50 times at parties!?

For Lauren Conrad, it's apparently tough to find a BFF and roommate with a boyfriend who doesn't suck. And turn her into a mother hen, of sorts.

The beautiful star of The Hills found herself in a somewhat familiar area Monday night, playing the third wheel as her roommate dated a new "hot" guy.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag at Area

Only this time it's not Heidi Montag, but new BFF, Audrina Patridge, and on-again boyfriend, Justin... whose friends, of course, call him Bobby. Thus, Justin-Bobby.

What's J-B's actual name? We have no idea. Nor would we care, except that Audrina Patridge is apparently too clueless to give this assbag the boot.

After a standoffish meeting with Lauren - the guy showcased his belching skillz and displayed the maturity of an eight-year-old in an upscale eatery (no joke) - Conrad will likely have less-nice, more descriptive nicknames for Justin-Bobby.

Mumbling, hiding under a hood and telling Lauren Conrad bluntly that he doesn't care about her opinion, Justin-Bobby is shaping up to be a worthy competitor for Spencer.

The scheming Spencer Pratt does a much better job of making himself compelling to watch, though - even the haters have to give him that.

Despite a desire not to hurt Lauren, who told her she should pull the plug, Audrina nonetheless found herself back with the motorcycle-riding bad boy by the episode's end.

As Lauren Conrad herself knows, sometimes the bad boys are the hardest to let go of. But will LC give Audrina flak for giving Justin-Bobby this second chance?

In other dysfunctional relationship news, the newly engaged Heidi Montag showed off her fake engagement ring at work, then struggled to set the ground rules for cohabitation. Her methods of choice were passive-agressive - and entertaining!

After Spencer Pratt "surprised" his lovely lover with vintage '80s arcade games and a graffiti-splashed living room wall, and didn't listen to her pleas for even a little input as to home decor, Heidi gave him a taste of his own medicine.

Spencer came home to find Heidi paint-rolling over his "artwork," offering him his very own "surprise" - a clean, plain, off-white wall!

Pratt fumed as Montag explained that if they plan to make this "engagement thing" work, they're going to have to make decisions together. Spencer was seething as he agreed as he stared forlornly at his once glorious wall. In a moment, though, he picked up a roller and finished off Heidi's project.

Is Spencer now thinking pal Brody Jenner may have been right when he said marriage was just an institution for dumb guys who can't get otherwise laid?

Who knows. But next week on The Hills, Spencer ditches a Brody BBQ to meet Heidi's parents in Colorado, while Brody and LC commiserate over their lost friendships. Meanwhile, Audrina encounters drama with Justin-Bobby - drama everyone in America saw coming but her!

"I literally feel, like, one of my friends... died."
- LC

After all this time, and hype, the much-anticipated season three premiere of MTV's The Hills didn't disappoint. For the most part.

Fake Girl

Monday's debut sure didn't waste any time bringing viewers inside the epic war between Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag, while properly (and blatantly) introducing each side's supporters.

Whitney Port - now a full-time employee and Lauren's supervisor at Teen Vogue - and Audrina Partridge are so on Team LC, while Montag's devilish boyfriend, Spencer Pratt, is Team Heidi's president, vice president, and PR coordinator.

Giving the people what they want, MTV began the year with a cat fight we knew happened, but have been wanting to see on film for moths, as a tipsy Lauren - enraged over rumors of her sex tape making the rounds - and Heidi hurled insults at each other outside Les Deux.

Lauren is convinced, right or wrong, that Heidi and Spencer started and spread the rumor of her making a sex video with ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler.

The gist of Lauren's position on the matter, as told to Heidi Montag: "You know what you did! You know what you did! You're a sad, pathetic person!"

That about covers it.

"I could just never imagine hating someone so much that you'd do something like that to them," Lauren Conrad said later, reflecting on the incident.

Oh well. She has other things to worry about, like meeting the boy du jour at the club, and whether or not to criticize Audrina's boy, a mumbling, biker, hippie-type who she dated off and on a few years back and doesn't say much.

We heart Lauren, but at the same time, we wonder if she's not - at least at times - taking out some of her own frustrations and insecurities on her friends.

By request, here are photos of Lauren Conrad outside Les Deux last night. With LC are Audrina Patridge and her high school pal from Laguna Beach, Lauren "Lo" Bosworth.

Thanks to Splash News for the photos, which show Lauren, Lo and Audrina as they make their way to their favorite L.A. hot spot. Looking fabulous, as usual, girls!

As we reported yesterday, with a new season of The Hills right around the corner, things between Lauren Conrad and her co-star (and former bestest pal) Heidi Montag have gotten so bad that two can't be in the same room together.

The root of that conflict? The slimy Spencer Pratt. Good to see Lauren knows who her real friends are. Always nice to see photos of Audrina and Lo! We missed you, girl!

Audrina Patridge is definitely a part of Team LC on The Hills, but she did have a few words of wisdom about villainous co-star Heidi Montag.

The trusty sidekick of Lauren Conrad was spotted yesterday at an event for Bravo's new real estate themed reality show, Flipping Out, where she talked briefly about Heidi's recent plastic surgery.

Audrina at the TCA

"If they make her feel good about herself, good for her," Audrina Patridge said of Montag's new rack, later adding:

"I really don't care!"

When asked about the smarminess that is Spencer Pratt - Heidi's sniveling, scheming, revolting boyfriend-turned-fiance - Audrina offered the following response:

"No comment!"

Very apropos.

With the gruesome twosome out of the picture (or at least in their own apartment), Audrina revealed there will be an addition to The Hills cast this coming season: a boyfriend.

She chose to keep his identity a secret for now, but we can't help but wonder if it's Josh McRoberts ... or the guy frolicking on the beach LC in those recent bikini pictures.

You can watch Audrina's talk with TMZ here. Lauren Conrad, Audrina, Whitney Port and the rest of the regulars from The Hills officially return on Monday, August 13.
