'The Hills': Are Justin Bobby and Audrina done for good?
I could tell from the instant Audrina sat down with Justin for dinner that things weren't going to go well.
"Did you get another ear piercing?" Justin asked, feigning interest in her appearance. "Rock and roll, baby."
Ugh, "baby." Immediately reeling her back in. Of course, Audrina -- constantly wearing her heart on her sleeve -- quickly opened up and told Justin she felt they could work things out. She'd even admitted to Lo earlier in the episode that despite it all, there was "still something there" between them.
"I don't know, kiddo," he replied, sucking in his breath.
The comment set Audrina off, and she tried to rub the fact that Kristin was back together with Brody in JB's face. Bad move. Justin clearly then just wanted to say anything to hurt Audrina. Cue this zinger:
"Kristin did something different to me than me and you had done," he said. "We went somewhere I haven't really gone with somebody, and I really didn't want to think about the consequences. I just did it."
That killed me. I mean, first of all, is he serious? Justin and Kristin's relationship has appeared to be such a showmance that I've never really taken the time to consider JB actually developing any real feelings for the blond heartbreaker. There's no way he could have fallen harder for Kristin than Audrina, right? Come on! Remember when he gave Audrina that cheesy ring in Palm Springs? That was serious business. And what about a few weeks ago, when he told Audrina that he "could never say anyone was better than Audrina Patridge?"
This guy enrages me.
And I want to say I can't understand why Audrina is such a glutton for punishment. How many times has she ignored warnings from Lauren and Lo about Justin's bad behavior before repeatedly running back to him? How many times has she settled for anything Justin will give her because he's not ready to commit?
But yet, I get it. Despite the fact that Justin Bobby never owns up to his true feelings for Audrina, I always get the sense that he loves her and that something real exists between the two. And so, though it seems like they might finally be kaput, I'm sure this isn't the last we'll be seeing of their messy relationship.
Meanwhile, the entire situation was only made worse by the fact that Justin has already lost his shot with Kristin, who has moved on to trying to get back together with Brody. Which of course meant getting into it with Jayde.
Kristin and Brody went out to a nightclub this week where, coincidentally, Jayde and her gang of scantily-clad Playmates were also heading to party. Brody -- who had his arm thrown around Kristin -- was clearly shocked to see Jayde walk in. Did you see how scared and guilty he looked the second he saw her? Definitely not the look of someone who is over their ex. Anyway. Then Kristin and Jayde fought and threatened each other and called each other "bitches." Brody left with Kristin.
And was anyone else confused by what supposedly went down between Kristin and Brody next? Did they shack up? Was he just crashing at her place because he was drunk? It certainly seems like they slept together -- which is awkward for Jayde, since judging by the latest tabloid pictures, she and Brody are back together now.
Why does everyone on "The Hills" keep running back to their exes? Do you think Brody and Kristin slept together? And is Justin Bobby totally dead to you after he broke Audrina's heart? Let's talk about it in the comments.
