2006-2010: The Hills and Dancing with the Stars
In 2006, MTV developed the reality television series The Hills as a spin-off of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. It originally chronicled the lives of Lauren Conrad, who appeared on its predecessor, her housemate Heidi Montag and friends Whitney Port and Patridge. During production of the first season, producers cast her in a position with Quixote Studios. The following season, Patridge was cast with Epic Records. Later in the season, Montag ended her friendship with Patridge after suspecting that she was involved with her boyfriend Spencer Pratt, though the women later reconciled. After Montag moved in with Pratt, Patridge and Lo Bosworth later became roommates with Conrad. During the third season, Patridge resumed an on-again/off-again relationship with boyfriend Justin Brescia, who Bosworth jokingly nicknamed "Justin Bobby". Their turbulent relationship carried through each subsequent season.
On May 28, 2009, she confirmed during an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest that she was leaving The Hills to star in her own reality program documenting her life outside The Hills. Her final episode of the series was supposed to be on December 1, 2009. However, she later signed on for the sixth and final season while her new series, produced by Mark Burnett, set to air on MTV in mid-2010, was put on hold due to The Hills. Patridge appeared in more episodes of The Hills than any other cast member.
Patridge launched her Hollywood career appearing on the reality show The Hills and then landed a minor role in Into the Blue 2: The Reef. The movie was released straight-to-DVD on April 21, 2009. Patridge has made appearances on Mad TV and Do Not Disturb.
In March 2008, nude pictures of Patridge were published online. "They were taken when I was just out of high school and beginning to model," Patridge had explained, "I was naive, overly trusting of people, and inexperienced."
In August 2008, she was cast as Megan in Sorority Row; production was carried out from October 2008 to early 2009, and the film was released on September 11, 2009. In August 2008, Patridge purchased a house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Dell neighbourhood. On February 22, 2009, Patridge's home was burgled by two members of the Bling Ring. She lives with a dog named Speedy Gonzales, with whom she appeared in an ad for PETA, encouraging people to adopt rather than buy pets.
Patridge appeared in Carl's Jr. commercials during 2009, 2010 and 2012. She refuted rumours that she would play the part based on her former Hills co-star Lauren Conrad in the film version of L.A. Candy based on the book by Conrad.
During a live press conference on August 31, 2010, Patridge was confirmed to be a contestant on the eleventh season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Her professional partner was Tony Dovolani.
