Audrina Patridge may not have been pleased with the reception she got at the judges’ table after her TV theme week, but she was thrilled with the chance to put her years on “The Hills” to use on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Zap2it caught up with Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani after their performance to “Unwritten,” and she explained why she doesn’t feel the need to distance herself from her reality roots. “It’s like reminiscing when I hear that song,” Patridge says. “I think of all these things from the past six years.”
She definitely had the most contemporary series to play off of, so they had the advantage of a familiar setting, recreating the pool at Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel on the dance floor.
But timing issues and coordination tripped Patridge up a bit. “I focused so much on my feet this week — because that’s what Carrie Ann [Inaba] said to do — I kind of forgot to focus on my upper body,” she admits. “I’ll do that next week.”
Patridge may have fallen in the ranks, but there’ll likely be a next week for her. And she’ll have to tackle two dances, including the Pasodoble.
