How much "reality" actually occurs on a reality television show? Not much, according to Audrina Patridge, who starred in MTV's popular series "The Hills," which followed the personal and professional lives of young people in Los Angeles.
"You just kind of have to roll with it and hype it up," Audrina says of the fabricated drama that producers encouraged on the show. "Kristin and I had to constantly get into fights over Justin, and I was actually dating someone else in my real life. That got hard because I was living two different lives."
Audrina says there was one story line in which she refused to participate. "At one point they wanted Brody and I to date," she says of co-star Brody Jenner, who also dated Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari on the show. "I know a lot about Brody, and I don't know if that would ever work."

The reality TV star says she's a different person today than the Audrina we saw on "The Hills," in which she appeared from the age of 19 to 25. "Those were the years that I grew up and went through all of these different experiences, relationships, and friendships trying to find myself."
Now, Audrina is excited about her newest opportunity as the host of NBC's "1st Look," which takes viewers on tours of the hottest restaurants, activities, and nightlife in different cities around the country. "It's a dream job," she says.
