Patridge will part ways with the hit MTV reality series to pursue a number of different projects, including her own reality show with 'Survivor''s Mark Burnett. "It feels like I'm graduating," she said at a press junket for the movie 'Sorority Row,' in which she co-stars. "I'm taking the next step and growing up and maturing and moving on in my life." Only in Hollywood does "growing up and maturing and moving on" mean getting your own reality show. [US Mag]
