Audrina Patridge in a Bikini

Audrina Patridge stars on The Hills. Maybe you recognize Audrina Patridge from that show ... or from those hot nude pics that surfaced online in March 2008. Or perhaps both.

Anyway, time for a little background info.

Born and raised in Yorba Linda, Ca., in (yes) Orange County, Audrina Patridge got on our nerves at first, as we thought she was kinda phony and plastic looking, but we came around eventually as she and Lauren Conrad became roommates.

Needless to say, we'll take Audrina Patridge over Heidi Montag. But soon enough, Audrina and LC had their own problems. Eventually, Audrina moved out of Lauren's guest house. Oh well. She got her own house and that's probably for the best!

Audrina has a job at Epic Records, as shown on The Hills, but aspires to be an actress and model as well.

Audrina Patridge is once again with that ass Justin-Bobby, having dated Shannon Leto, Brian Drolet, Tal Cooperman, Corey Bohan and who knows how many other dudes.

She has two sisters, Samantha and Casey Patridge. Casey just had a baby with her fiance and has many tattoos!

In March 2008, Audrina became the subject of scandal when naked pics of her were leaked online (as we mentioned earlier). She admitted that they were, in fact, Audrina Patridge nude photos and that she had tried out for Playboy at age 19. Sure. We bet they were "leaked" accidentally. Mmm hmm.

They were hot, though, that's for damn sure.

Hopefully she can rise above the scandal (or use it to her advantage if that's what she's after) and go back to being the good friend we know on The Hills.

Audrina Patridge is also trying to start a movie career. With the amount of raw talent (read: cleavage) she brings to the table, she'll get plenty of roles!
