Rep: Audrina Patridge "still in discussions" to remain on 'The Hills'
By Christopher Rocchio, 12/07/2009
Audrina Patridge's previous comments that she was leaving The Hills were apparently premature.
Patridge is currently negotiating to return toThe Hills for its sixth season, her representative toldUs Weekly in a Friday report.
"Audrina is still in discussions with MTV about Season 6 ofThe Hills," the representative told Us.
"There is not a firm deal in place. She is set to begin filming the pilot episode of her new show next week, in Los Angeles."
While Patridge has been a The Hills regular since it premiered in 2006, she will be starring is her own new reality series -- tentatively titled The Audrina Show. The show, originally announced in March, is currently in development at MTV and is being produced by Mark Burnett.
In September, she stated that she was "almost done" filmingThe Hills' final fifth-season episodes -- which she intended to be her swan song on the show.
"We're in the middle of finishing these episodes, and I'll be leaving then," she said at the time.
