An Up Hills Battle For Damage Control

Pink reader Lauren gave me the head's up that the blog What Would Tyler Durden Do? has posted a set of NSFW topless photos that are supposedly of Audrina Partridge of the MTV show The Hills. Of these photos, WWTDD writes:

"Just in time for The Hills comeback ... We just posted the racy, naked photos of Audrina Patridge that she used to audition for Playboy. Sources say the beauty from a wealthy Orange County family was a natural in front of the camera and loved every second of the shoot at an LA mansion and was thrilled with the results -- particularly the raunchy schoolgirl pics. Lucky for us Playboy showed no interest in the pics."

Now, I am always very skeptical of these sorts of things when they first come out but it turns out that Audrina released a statement, thru her rep, acknowledging and confirming that she did take these photos:

"I took these photos years ago when I was just out of high school and beginning to model. I was young and very trusting of others and I didn't know to protect myself. It is a lesson learned, for myself, and hopefully for the young girls who look up to me."

Man ... no wonder Justin Bobby hung around for so long ... Audrina isn't as innocent as we previously believed. I wonder what this little scan-dal will do for the ratings on The Hills. Head on over to WWTDD to check out the full batch of NSFW images of Audrina and her hills. [Source]
