The 23 year old star reached a plea deal on Thursday with Los Angeles prosecutors and was sentenced to three years of informal probation, in addition to being required to pay a fine and attend an alcohol education course and AA meetings.
Stephanie’s DUI charges were dropped after she plead no contest to a misdemeanor “exhibition of speed” charge. She has previously described her arrest as “the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, it was the biggest blessing.”
Audrina Patridge has evidently had a change of heart, and has officially signed on to return to the next season of The Hills. The 24 year old announced back in August that she would be leaving the show to pursue her own reality show.
UsWeekly is now reporting Audrina has agreed to come back after weeks of negotiations.
“I can officially confirm that Audrina Patridge will appear in the 6th season of The Hills,” Jennifer Shoucair Weaver, a rep for Audrina reveals. “Production will resume shortly after the new year. Next week, Patridge begins filming the pilot episode of her currently unnamed spinoff show, also for MTV . The new show will be produced by Mark Burnett.”
According to a source, Audrina will be “getting six figures per episode. It is an incredibly lucrative deal.”
Great news for The Hills and The City fans as MTV has now renewed The Hills for season six and The City for season three.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the new seasons of both shows will air sometime in 2010. Production on The City’s 3rd season will begin this week while The Hills’ 6th season will go into production in early January.
The finales of both shows aired this week, and EW was able to chat The series’ respective stars, Kristin Cavallari and Whitney Port, about their decisions to continue with the shows. “I’ve had the best time—I really have,” says Kristin . “I feel like I have the best job! Why not?!” Kristin also says she’s no longer worried about being pegged as a reality TV star. “It’s like I’m in it now,” she admits. “I might as well keep going!”
The upcoming season of The City will focus much more on Whitney’s attempt to succeed with her own fashion line. “That’s my reality,” says Whitney. “It’s where this collection is going to be sold, who we’re going to put it on, what magazines it’s going to be on.” We’ll also get a peak into Port’s social life and friendships. “Just Roxy and I exploring the city together a little bit more and learning who we are.”
Audrina Patridge will not be returning to the Hills’ new season as she will now begin filming her own upcoming solo reality show for MTV.
Stephanie Pratthas pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge in a Los Angeles court Friday and will enroll in a 30-day rehab residential facility.
The Hills star, 23, was arrested back in October in Hollywood after driving home from fellow castmate, Holly Montag‘sbirthday party. Her two breathalyzer tests registered .08 and .09 — the legal limit is .08. She was arrested and released on $5000 bail.
She recently told PEOPLE that the arrest “was the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, it was the biggest blessing” as a life lesson. If convicted, Stephanie faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
According to People, Kristin is now dating Tal Cooperman, who just happens to be another ex of fellow castmate, Audrina Patridge. Tal and Audrina dated last summer.
“It’s brand new. They’re having a lot of fun enjoying getting to know each other better,” says a source of Cavallari’s relationship with Tal. “It’s not for the show. They hit it off and have been hanging out off-camera.”
Kristin and Tal allegedly enjoyed a date night Thursday in Los Angeles, during which they were spotted sharing a sushi dinner at Nobu and kissing at West Hollywood hotspot Voyeur. “They were making out on one of the club’s VIP stages after midnight,” says a clubgoer. “They were all over each other.”
It’s probably best for the human race that these folks keep their stds germs amongst their circle, as they all seem to date the same people. I haven’t been watching the Hills that much this season, but I have become a fan of The City, which seems slightly less fake than the Hills. That Olivia is quite the character, and definitely makes the show interesting.

FormerHillsstar, Lauren Conrad has moved on to bigger and better things. Lauren is now working on a movie deal for her debut book L.A. Candy, whichhas been on the New York Times bestseller list for the past 14 weeks, since its release in June.
Similar to Lauren’s life, L.A Candy follows a 19-year-old girl, Jane Roberts who relocates to Hollywood and becomes a famous reality star.
“Lauren, who became an icon in that reality show world, came to us with a structure of how to tell the story in an interesting fashion that was separate and apart from the book,” Temple Hill producer Marty Bowensaid. “We loved her take. Her book is an honest portrayal of what it must be like to set out to be normal, then sign on to become famous and eventually realize, wow, this isn’t at all what I’d planned for myself.”
According to PEOPLE, Lauren has no plans to act in the movie. She also plans to write two more books in the series and will serve as the movie’s executive producer.
Kristin managed to rub practically everyone the wrong way. The biggest conflict came when Kristin faced off against Audrina Patridge, who accused her of going after her on-and-off fling Justin Bobby.
In a new interview with USWeekly, Kristin dishes on Audrina and what she thought of the sixth season’s premiere episode. “I think that Audrina and Stephanie [Pratt] were very judgmental and just wrote me off right away without getting to know me,” Cavallari, 22, said on Tuesday at an event in West Hollywood.
Kristin however played coy on her reasons for going after Audrina’s ex, Justin Bobby, saying — “You’ll have to see it on the show” — revealing “the love triangle” gets “pretty dramatic” as the season progresses.
Something tells us Kristin went after Justin Bobby because the Hills’ script called for it. Kristin also manages to get a swipe in against Audrina when asked about what she thought of Audrina’s appearance, “I’m not commenting on her plastic surgery,” laughed Kristin.
