“I’m working on a new book right now. It’s an autobiography. It’s going to include things about life at the mansion,” the 20-year-old blond told Hollywood Life exclusively at OK! magazine’s fifth anniversary party Sept. 1 in Hollywood. “[It was reported] that it was a tell-all about Kendra, but that totally got twisted. Kendra is involved in it because she was at the mansion at the time.”
The book WILL delve into the seedy underbelly of the Playboy mansion, though. “There’s a whole other side of Playboy that nobody knows and I’m going to be able to explain,” she tells us. “[I'm going to write] totally unexplainable things that nobody would ever expect. It’s the Hef that no body knows. It’s the Hef that I know personally. Kendra might not have wanted to talk about it, but I’m willing to talk about it!”
While Kendra seems to be safe from harm, Karissa is more than willing to diss the other Playmates. “The other girls had things against us because we kind of took over their show,” she says of Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison. “[My twin sister Katrina and I] are the younger and better looking Playmates. They’re all kind of old and they put in all the work to make the show. We just kind of came in and took over. So there’s a lot of jealousy going on there, but I don’t have a problem [with Holly].”
Now that we know the season 11 "Dancing with the Stars" cast and the celeb/pro-dancer pairings, we're left wondering about partner chemistry and what dances the pairs will roll out when the show premieres September 20.
When MTV News caught up with Audrina Patridge between a flurry of photo shoots, wardrobe fittings and rehearsals recently, she said she's having a great time so far, particularly working with her dance pro, Tony Dovolani.
"He is amazing," she said. "He's such a great teacher. He's very professional, and we have a lot of fun together. It's really fun. I look forward to going to rehearsal every day."
Patridge added that dancing with a partner might spoil her for all other forms of dance. "I almost like dancing with a partner better, because they're leading you and you have someone next to you, so it pumps you up to dance and move to their movements," she explained. "I love it."
The former "Hills" star said she hasn't yet mastered a particular step — since they've only had a few days of rehearsals — but she's having fun learning so many new things. "[During our first rehearsal] I learned so many different things," she said. "It was really just getting to know my way of learning; I'm a visual learner."
One movement she said she's going to have to practice is spotting, a technique dancers use to focus their turns and keep from getting dizzy.
"I practiced doing all the pique turns, [but] I need to practice spotting, because I get a little dizzy," Patridge admitted. "Those are probably the most challenging for me right now: spotting and spinning without getting dizzy."
