This time, it's no accident.
In fact, the celebrity gossip on the street in recent days is that Audrina Patridge was none too happy with the way she looked in the first set of nude pictures that were mysteriously leaked this month, so she released a new set.
Yes, we're serious. After she expressed regret, yet sort of defended the nude photos that leaked online, The Hills star has posed for more than a dozen hot new pics for the celebrity photo agency Splash News (which also owns the originals).
The photo agency had no comment. Check out the HOT pics here.
Some celebrity observers and skeptics believe that Audrina Patridge was perfectly happy about the release of the nude photos - and may have even leaked them herself. After all, nothing produces buzz like naked photo scandals.
Was the leaking of Audrina Patridge nude pics really accidental?
Reports say Audrina had been getting less screen time because of Lauren Conrad's friendship with Lauren Bosworth (Lo). Lo is LC's roommate, while Audrina lives in the guest house behind Conrad's recently-purchased Hollywood villa.
"Audrina has been feeling left out," says an insider.
"[Lauren Conrad] is always with Lo, and they're decorating their house together, so Audrina has been feeling like she's been replaced."
But not on the celebrity gossip meter.
Thanks to the topless photos she is much more highly sought after. Even Playboy wants to talk to her, possibly about a nude pictorial in the near future (heck, if she's already appeared with the Pussycat Dolls, Playboy can't be far off).
The nude Audrina pics were good enough to get the men's mag's attention, which is ironic, as they were shot and submitted to Playboy back in the day, only to be rejected. Now that Patridge has major notoriety, however, it's a new ballgame.
