'The Hills': Audrina's, um, parting gift? Her own freaking show!

Audrinapatridge_lFile this bit of news under "Things I find utterly annoying": Following The Hills‘ fifth (and most likely final…as it should be!) season, Audrina Patridge plans to leave the show for a bigger and better life. You see, in the reality world that usually means she’s getting her own series (to heck with Lauren!), and folks, you’ll never believe who she’s reportedly inked a deal with! (I would normally say something like, "Drum roll please…" here, but I think this info calls for more of a somber tone.) That’s right, reality guru Mark Burnett has apparently signed on to exec producer Audrina’s show. And it seems the toothy brunette herself will get a producing credit as well.

While Burnett has put some questionable shows on his resume in the past (Pirate Master, Commando Nanny, and On the Lot ring any bells?), I still hold him up in the Reality TV Genius realm. I’ve always been a gigantic fan his Survivor — practically since Jeff Probst first spit out the words, "The tribe has spoken" — and I’ll be the first to admit The Apprentice had me at "You’re Fired!" So with all of that in mind, why oh why would Burnett lend his many creative juices to a California girl who, to me, is about as fun to watch as paint drying on a wall.

Sure, some of you can argue that I am being a bit harsh, but in my many years being a fan of The Hills (and recapping it the next morning!), I’ve never really taken a liking to Audrina. Half the time I wanted to press mute when she’d talk (was she actually saying anything of importance anyway?) and the other half, I wanted to jump into my TV set, grab her shoulders, and yell, "Show some emotion woman!"

Maybe Mark Burnett will be able to help the wallflower come out of her shell, or heck, give her more of a exciting edge, but I’m not so sure I’ll even be able to make myself watch when (and if) Audrina’s show debuts. What about you, PopWatchers? Are you as perturbed as I am with Burnett? Or do you think this is actually a good idea? Spill below!

    Great idea…and I hope it’s set near a beach. ;)

  • UGH!!

    HORRIBLE IDEA!!! What could this show possibly be about? I’d rather watch a Speidi reality show than this drivel. TV has officially gone to h-e-l-l.

  • Shamrock

    Oh good, another show I won’t watch. Pretty soon I won’t need a TV. Video killed the Radio Star? Well reality TV killed…well TV of course.

  • JP

    Just what we need another prefab celebrity with their own show. The apocalypse is near.

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    Ha ha nice one Jack!!! But seriously, she and John Elway could have a show to compete as to who has the biggest horse mouth in the world.

    I’m glad most of you folks mirror my sentiments exactly (http://squareeyes.blinkx.com/?p=455) in saying this is gonna be boring as hell. I can’t think of anything more snoozy than Audrina doing things. Daily life things, fun things, any things.
    This is the first time in my life I’ve missed Heidi and Spencer.

  • mimi

    WOW, another dumb, awkward reality show with a dumb (blonde) chick.
    Another reason to NOT watch MTV

  • nnnnnn

    well now i hope that stupid Lo girl doesn’t get her own spin off!!!

    OK, I would like to say that you shouldn’t know anything before you try it. I think Audrina could do good with her own show. Second, if you want to talk about someone’s professional career and sucking at it, you should probably learn how to proof-read what you write! As that is the most basic step when publishing your writings/articles. So I say to you, when you can get your own professional life in order, then and only then you can go and bash someone elses career.

    I think audrina getting her own show sounds like a total bore. However a show I would watch is a spin off show of heidi and spencer. I dont think they get enough time on the hills…watching Spencer being an ass is surprisingly entertaingin..because all you want is just once for heidi to go f*** you spencer..lol
