Audrina Patridge “almost done with The Hills”

After announcing last March that she was leaving The Hills for her own reality series produced by Mark Burnett, Audrina Patridge is completing her work on the MTV no-reality show.

“I’m almost done with The Hills. We’re in the middle of finishing these episodes, and I’ll be leaving then,” she told Us Weekly. “It feels like I’m graduating. I’m taking the next step and growing up and maturing and moving on in my life.”

And that’s a big step to another reality show. But Audrina also said she wants to keep pursuing acting–HitFix has the first three minutes of the new movie Sorority Row, if you want to see how amazing her acting is–and said the MTV series has helped her be “comfortable in front of the cameras” because “I feel like it’s helped me a lot going to auditions and sitting in front of the camera… blocking the camera out and just getting into character.”
