Ever worried about how to balance the pressures of fame with a family life?
Well Audrina Patridge has the answers.
The Hills star has returned to her Orange County roots in her new self-titled reality show.
In a new promotional advert, the beautiful brunette reveals titbits about what her fans should expect to see.
At the beginning of the clip, the 25-year-old is seen at a ritzy Los Angeles hotel dressed in a glamorous gown.
Suddenly the background music stops, and The former Hills star dives into a pool fully-clothed.
As she swims through the water her dress slips off to reveal a bathing suit, and as she comes up for air she's suddenly transported into the backyard pool at her family home.
There, she sees her mother and father barbecuing and her sisters and brother sun-bathing.
The sequence is designed to signify change as Audrina tries to find a balance between fame and family.
'Somewhere between fame and family there is a place for me,' she says in the clip, while the song Uncharted by Sara Bareilles plays in the background.
Co-starring in her new show is her mother Lynn, her father Mark and her three siblings.
So far a tight-lipped Audrina has made sure not to reveal too much about the
'It's a reality show about me and my family,' she told Us Weekly last year.
'Everything that people have wondered about me, they'll now get to see.'
Bosses at VH1 are thrilled about the new concept.
'We love that Audrina's life plays out simultaneously on two levels,' Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, VH1, said in a statement.
'On one level, she is working hard to establish herself in the entertainment industry,' the statement continues.
'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 of a young woman with dreams, goals and ambitions all put through the no-BS filter of her family.'
