Whether it was Justin Bobby, Corey Bohan or one of Audrina Patridge's other suitors, the former Hills star always seemed to have drama with the guys she dated in front of the cameras.
Several months after the finale of her own VH1 reality show Audrina – which did not get renewed for a second season – Patridge, 26, tells PEOPLE "now things are good" between her and on-again beau Bohan.
"Filming a reality show really takes a toll on relationships because your mindset is to create good TV," she says. "It's hard on relationships, so after the show, Corey and I really worked on what was going on with us. We spent time together."
Patridge, whose latest split from Bohan was the premise of her show's finale, told People in April that the breakup "was a long time coming," but the duo reportedly rekindled the flame a month later.
Even though she reunited with Bohan after she finished filming, her break from the spotlight lasted much longer.
"I took five to six months off to just relax," Patridge said. "With seven straight years of filming, I didn't really get time to organize my house or do things for myself, so I just took some time off. I moved to the beach."
Patridge, whose last day as Bongo's two-year spokesperson was on Tuesday, enjoyed her mini-hiatus, but she's ready for her next assignment.
"I'm back again, refreshed and not burnt out," she says. "I know I've been kind of laying low lately, but next year I'm really looking forward to working and getting back out there. I have some really great projects I'm working on."
In the meantime, the reformed reality starlet, who also competed on Dancing with the Stars, has been planning for Bohan's 30th birthday, which is in January.
"I haven't picked out any holiday gifts for him yet, but I am throwing him a little birthday party before he leaves to go back to Australia," she says. "It'll be fun. He knows about it, but there are some surprises he doesn't know about. I'm still going to get him a gift for Christmas, but I haven’t even started shopping yet. It's going to be last minute this year."
"Usually when I fly out to NYC for Kohl’s, it’s all business and no play. Thankfully this time around I was able to sneak in a bit more fun than usual. The highlight of the trip was ice skating in Bryant Park and meeting up with a few friends from high school. (And I’m proud to say I only fell once…haha.) Nothing beats being in NYC over the holidays. And ice skating in the park is just one of the many reasons it’s so great.
Are you going anywhere over the holidays?

Kyle posted: "Every after shooting a fashion story for 8 hours with Olivia Palermo she is this cute! It was a freezing day shooting outside with her and I can’t wait to show everyone the pics. We had almost $3 million dollars of Bulgari jewelry and also another designer brought two special rings that were $1 million dollars each. It was insane. Photos will come out in November. It will be an Olivia you have never seen before!"

Kristin tweeted: "Going to my favorite restaurant in MALIBU ☺"
Kristin Cavallari recently told People that she is finally ready for her happily ever after with Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler after he called off their engagement earlier this year.
"Sometimes, in order for things to get better, they have to end – even if it's momentarily and that was the case with us."
As far as Cavallari, 24, is concerned, the love between her and Cutler was always there, and the reason for the split is something that she and Cutler, 28, who's been sidelined this football season with a thumb injury, have worked through.
"No one really knows what happened between the two of us, and we want to keep it that way," she says. "We broke up, and we were still talking during that whole time."
Even while separated, the passion never left the relationship.
"We didn't break up because of love lost," Cavallari tells People. "We loved each other just as much as we always did when we weren't together."
