The former "Hills" star said that she's not very close with her castmates anymore.
"Being with each other on the show, it brought us all together, and once the show ended we all kind of went our separate ways," Patridge said while on "Fashion Police." "[But] I still talk to Kristen [Cavallari] and Heidi [Montag] every now and then."
After appearing on the show, Patridge, 29, took a break from being in the spotlight to make time for self-reflection. During her time on the show, she said, producers dictated her every move.
"[They're] telling you who to be friends with, how to act, what to do every day, what to say," she said. "I was burnt out and I really needed time to figure out who I was and what I wanted."
