I can’t seem to stay from any reality shows (it’s a sickness that can’t be cured), and so I’ll probably need to tune into Audrina Patridge‘s (aka ‘Ceiling Eyes’ from The Hills) new show simply titled Audrina when it premieres on VH1 on April 17th. Although watching her is basically akin to watching paint dry, her crazy ass (drunk) mom Lynn Patridge should definitely make things a bit more interesting (remember her drunken tirade when she went on and on about Lauren Conrad?), check out the new ‘supertrailer’ below!
Audrina follows former Hills star Audrina Patridge into the next stage of her life and career, introducing viewers to a whole new cast of characters, most importantly her large, outrageous, Orange County family. As the series begins, Audrina finds herself trying to balance the demands of two worlds. On one hand, there is Hollywood and its many golden opportunities in acting, modeling and business. Will she be able to parlay her fame into a career that avoids the varied potential pitfalls of stardom?
The other world which Audrina clings to for support and guidance in this new quest is her big, tight-knit, Orange County family. With her tell-it-like-it-is mom Lynn and peacemaking dad Mark at the center of this tight-knit bunch, Audrina is still determined to be an active presence in the lives of her three younger siblings: former wild child Casey, now married to motocross star Kyle Loza and mother of two; genial younger brother and life of the party, Marky, who has recently become Audrina’s new roommate; and 16-year-old sister Samantha, who is managing the perils of high school and always seeking advice from her loving big sister.
Add to this mix of big personalities the pressures of being hounded by harsh gossip blogs and paparazzi and Audrina’s hope that she can make her often tumultuous relationship work with on-again/off-again boyfriend, Corey Bohan, and Audrina has all the makings of a docusoap that’s at once sexy and dynamic, but also funny and relatable to anyone who’s ever had to balance the expectations of family and friends against what they want for themselves.
