Reality TV star Audrina Patridge is following in the footsteps of pal Lauren Conrad - she's moving out of THE HILLS to focus on her burgeoning acting career.
The 24 year old, who is developing her own reality series, has been a regular on the hit MTV show since its inception in 2006, about a group of young friends and their daily struggles in Hollywood.
Conrad, the main focus of the first five seasons, quit The Hills earlier this year (09) and now Patridge admits she will be moving on from the programme after filming wraps on the latest series.
She says, "I'm almost done with The Hills. We're in the middle of finishing these episodes, and I'll be leaving then. It feels like I'm graduating. I'm taking the next step and growing up and maturing and moving on in my life."
