Audrina Patridge: "Yes" I'm in love with Corey Bohan

Audrina Patridge is officially in love.
The eleventh-season Dancing with the Stars participant and former The Hills star has excitedly admitted "yes" she's in love with on-again, off-again boyfriend Corey Bohan, Us Weeklyreported.
"We've been off and on for almost five years, but we've been solid," Patridge said, adding that they've "talked" about getting married but haven't made any real wedding plans.
"There's so much pressure from the media and other people, so we try not to tell everyone our business. It will be up to us."
Patridge and Bohan began dating in 2008 after she called things off with ex-boyfriend Justin "Bobby" Brescia, who was often criticized for his alleged bad boy, player-type personality during their stint together on The Hills.
"With other guys in the past I dated, I never felt safe. We'd go out and I felt like I had to defend them, and so with Corey, I feel like I'm safe -- he's a guy's guy," Patridge explained.
The 28-year-old reality TV star had also been linked to Chris Pine, Ryan Cabrera and Mark Salling.
"[Corey]'s not afraid to get dirty and that's what I like about him. He's not super metro," she told Us.
While Patridge described her relationship with Bohan as "solid," she admitted it's difficult to date long distance.
"Whenever he's in different countries it's opposite time, so we won't even talk to each other on the phone for like five days," Patridge explained. "We'll hear from each other maybe once every few days, so it does get hard, but you just have to stay busy and keep moving so you don't have that time to sit."
Patridge reportedly "took two years off" from television after her VH1 reality series entitled Audrina was canceled in 2011 after just one season.
"I was kind of burnt out," she added. "Now I've been going back to acting class and going on auditions for hosting stuff and different TV shows."
As for whether she'd be willing to air her personal life on a show again, she told Us, "I've been through that and it's hard for me to trust anyone as far as reality goes."
