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.
R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. Corporate crooks won’t take his calls. Murderous gangsters mad-dogged him in court. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Pusillanimous cops have left hostile messages using fake names. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. And a frantic state legislator literally caught sleeping with lobbyists sprinted down state capital hallways to evade his questions in Sacramento. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club and been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists.
