What are castmembers from soon-to-be-cancelled The Hills going to do with their reality-TV selves after the last episode? One Audrina Patridge, she of the record-label-job (real or not real?) has already landed one campaign—Patridge will replace Jesse McCartney as the new face of Bongo. "Audrina was a natural choice for the campaign," the company's chief marketing officer told WWD. "She lives that glamorous, adventurous lifestyle that our Bongo customers are fascinated with." The campaign will bow in September issues of Teen Vogue, Seventeen, and Cosmopolitan. Our most burning question, though, is: Do you like Audrina better with bangs (on the show) or without (right)?
