There's more great news for 24-year-old Yorba Linda (or Placentia, depending on the source) native Audrina Patridge.
Patridge, who appeared on MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills, is being called a "breakout star" by heavyweight television producer Mark Burnett and getting her own show this year: Audrina.
The show is scheduled to premiere in April on VH1.
Jeff Olde, VH1's executive vice president for original programming and production, said in a press release this week, "We love that Audrina's life plays out simultaneously on two levels. On one level, she is working hard to establish herself in the entertainment industry. But at the same time, she has this amazing, real, supportive family in Orange County who keeps her grounded. Ultimately, this is the story of a young woman with dreams, goals and ambitions--all put through the no-BS filters of her family. We love that."
Landing her own gig is no surprise. Patridge has also appeared in the films Sorority Row and Into the Blue 2 and in the TV shows Do Not Disturb and Mad TV. She also appeared in Carl's Jr. commercials in 2009 and in 2010 was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars.
