More Hills alum news. If you've noticed that Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge are never photographed at the same event (this is an easy detail to oversee, we admit), it is because they aren't friends anymore. According to Patridge, the former Hollywood Hills roommates hit a rough patch and never recovered: "I don't really talk to Lauren or see her at all [...] I think there was a little bit of a falling out. We kind of went our separate ways. The show brought us together and without that show, we all kind of go back to our own thing." Hmm. Do you think it was boy- or work-related? These are the important Monday questions to ponder. [US Magazine; Previously]
