Audrina Practices Posing For Paparazzi


She may always have that same, glazed over look that earned her the name “ceiling eyes,” but Hills star Audrina Patridge reveals she actually practices that look at home in the mirror. When working it on the red carpet at the NASCAR/Pepsi 500 Hollywood party, someone commented that the Hills hottie was a natural, but she admitted that the look takes practice. Then she revealed that she practices different poses, since “each dress or outfit needs its own pose.” We’re waiting – show us! [Source:; Photo: Getty Images]


Is Tinsley Mortimer The New Lauren Conrad?


When Lauren Conrad left The Hills to be replaced by super villain Kristin Cavallari, it left a vacancy for a cute blonde who likes to dress in designer labels and party at all the hotspots with her sexy friends while looking for love. Welcome Tinsley Mortimer, the recent divorcee who is currently filming her new CW reality show, “Empire State.” Looks are not all these two reality hotties have in common. Tinsley and Lauren both enjoy pampering themselves, checking out the latest at Fashion Week, and partying at all the right places. Check out our gallery of Tinsley and Lauren! So what do you think, will Tinsley satisfy your craving for reality show dropout LC? [Photos: Splash News Online]

Heidi Montag: Reality Star Or Street Walker?


Yesterday a commenter encouraged us to “get a life!” and we promise we will – but only after Heidi Montag starts dressing like the glamorous, A-List star that she is. The Colorado bumpkin turned Mrs. Pratt is a music mogul and future Oscar-winner, so why does she dress like she’ll hop in your car for $30 a pop?

The plastic princess hit up Cafe Midi in Los Angeles with Audrina Patridge (whose casual but Chanel-heavy outfit we adore, BTW) to shoot some surely enthralling scenes for “The Hills” in a pink tank with a red bra underneath (explain immediately, Heidi!), a leather mini skirt, and thigh-high lace up leather boots. Yeah, we know they’re Louboutins, but luxury doesn’t always equal class, Heids. Didn’t Lauren Conrad teach you anything? [Photo: Splash News Online]

Lauren Conrad’s Book To Become A Movie


Was leaving The Hills the best move Lauren Conrad made? We ask because it’s emerged that the movie rights to her book LA Candy have been bought. The “reality” show star released her debut “novel” in June (OK, we’re stopping the quotation marks now) and now Temple Hill Entertainment  – who produce the Twilight flicks! – have bought the rights to the thinly-fictionalized version of her story.

What’s more, she’s launched a new clothing line for Kohls’ store, after her last overpriced venture died a quick death. We’re sure LC’s new affordable venture will get more success than her last one, but couldn’t help raising our eyes somewhat when she says, “To be honest, if you are a great designer and you know what you’re doing, you don’t need to make very expensive clothing.” Yeah – stick that in your pipe Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Rodarte, Versace, Gucci and the rest of you, and smoke it!

Heidi Montag: I’m An Iconic Sex Symbol


We really shouldn’t be surprised at anything that comes out of Heidi Montag’s mouth – after all, she thinks Spencer Pratt is a hot, marriageable catch. But what is news to us, is that her Playboy spread was in fact part of Heidi’s own self-mythologizing plans.

“I wasn’t nervous [about the shoot] because I’d got my body and mind into shape for it. My aim is to become an iconic sex symbol, and the Playboy shoot is the first step,” she told Closer magazine.

Sorry – our mistake, Heidi. We didn’t know you were joining the hallowed ranks of Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot! Thanks for letting us know. We only anticipate (with horrified head-in-hands mode) what your next “iconic” step will be. And we can’t remember any of these legendary ladies promising to get “triple X” boobs for their husbands. Or pole dancing for the cameras. [Photo: WireImage]


Style Wars: Lauren Conrad Vs. Kristin Cavallari

They may not be on the same show anymore, but rivals Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari still have to come to the same events and compete for camera time. At last night’s VMAs, Cavallari stuck to the shiny theme that so many others were enamored by (en-armored by? ‘Cause it looks like — nevermind), going for a tight disco ball minidress, while LC opted for a demure “I’m totally more mature than that lying skank” look. Was LC’s look too blah, or was Kristin just one of the many sequined starlets? Who turned more heads before heading back to “The Hills?” And most importantly, can you feel the rain on your skin?

Spencer Will Divorce Heidi If She Gets Pregnant


Spencer Pratt really, really does not want a baby. In fact, Spencer is so against wife Heidi Pratt‘s wishes to procreate that he is even threatening to divorce his wife of four months if she gets pregnant.

“He said, ‘That’s the quickest way to divorce. I said, ‘No sucker-you’ll be locked in. What do you mean?'” Heidi says.

“I’m a baby. I’m not prepared,” says Spencer. “And I’m not sure the world wants a Spencer Pratt spawn.” Well, he’s probably right about that one.

Spencer claims Heidi doesn’t know what she’s saying when she talks about getting knocked up and says his wife is talking about having a baby with the same attitude as  “going to buy a new pair of Louis Vuittons.”

“If she get’s pregnant,” Spencer says,”I told her there’s a divorce or adoption. If she’s not down with the adoption, I think it’s divorce.” [Source: Us magazine; Photo: Getty Images]


Audrina Patridge Waving Goodbye To The Hills


Lauren Conrad was the first to go, now another one bites the dust. Audrina Patridge will be leaving The Hills.

“I’m graduating,” Audrina said. “I’m moving on. At times, I feel like I’m in high school, but I didn’t even go through this stuff in high school.”

When Audrina begins shooting her new reality show for MTV, she doesn’t seem to think she will be missing The Hills too much. “It’s like a job. I do it, I leave, and then I forget about it.” [Photo: Getty Images]


Doug Reinhardt Misses “The Hills”


Doug Reinhardt seems to have a death-wish, at least when it comes to his reputation. The minor league baseball player appeared on “The Hills” a couple years ago when he dated Lauren Conrad, but lately he is spiraling deeper into the trashy world of famous-for-doing-nothing-ness. After leaving “The Hills” he hooked up with Paris Hilton, who he has been dating since February. Now, sidelined from baseball (first with an injury, and now with what we assume is a taste for fame), he wants to return to “The Hills.”

Cast members of the MTV show were partying in Atlantic City recently and were overheard talking about Doug, who wants a regular spot on the show. A source said, “He’s been begging MTV producers for a contract. Doug keeps calling MTV, but they don’t want him.” Reinhardt, who does occasionally appear on the show, does so for free. We urge Doug to get back to the baseball field and away from the vapid scripts and silicone on “The Hills.” Doug, you actually have a skill, use it! Save yourself! [Photo: GettyImages]


Heidi Montag’s Miss Universe “Performance”

We had been gearing up for Heidi Montag‘s live performance at the Miss Universe pageant because we’ve never seen her sing live and, well, when you close your eyes and imagine such a thing, usually a train wreck comes to mind. So when the real thing finally happened we were not let down, but in a way it felt familiar. . .like we had seen it before and then we realized: Montag performed a lackluster dance number to her song “Body Language” in a flesh-tone and sequin outfit that felt a little Britney Spears circa the VMA’s from 2000. We’re talking right down to the striptease portion where she undresses out of discreet black suiting and into revealing underthings.

Funny enough, producers were counting on a crappy performance from Montag. An insider at the pageant said they were counting on her to create buzz, but not really in a good way. “Everyone is going to talk about Heidi’s performance and the worse she is the more talk there will be,” they explained. Sums up her entire career pretty well, actually. [Video via EW]
