This is no April Fool's joke: Audrina Patridge's VH1 reality series is premiering this April, the network has announced. Audrina will follow the former Dancing with the Stars contestant through the ups and downs of her life.

That means we'll see stuff about Audrina trying to advance her "acting, modeling and business career" mixed with stuff like her mom's drunken tirade following Audrina's ouster from DWTS. Why did VH1 want to get in business with Patridge?

"We love that Audrina's life plays out simultaneously on two levels. On one level, she is working hard to establish herself in the entertainment industry," VH1 executive vice president of original programming and production Jeff Olde says. "But at the same time she has this amazingly real, supportive family in Orange County who keeps her grounded. Ultimately, this is the story of a young woman with dreams, goals and ambitions all put through the no-BS filter of her family. We love that."
