Audrina Patridge Doesn’t Think Fans Will Miss Lauren Conrad

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt aren’t the only ones who think The Hills will do just fine after the departure of Lauren Conrad from the series. Her former housemate Audrina Patridge echoed the sentiment to press recently.

Patridge told Us Weekly that even after L.C. leaves the MTV reality television staple, she believes fans will still tune in. “Yes, we’re like family to our audience,” the brunette asserted.

As for Audrina, she’s got a budding straight-to-DVD career to focus on, seen here on the red carpet for the release of her film Into The Blue 2: The Reef. Things are looking up for her. And vice versa.
