What the Hell Is Audrina Patridge Looking At?

Linda Sharps

So Audrina Patridge, perhaps best known as That One Chick on The Hills, is now on Dancing With the Stars. I didn't see tonight's performance, because if I'm going to watch David Hasselhoff, I want him falling-down-drunk and sloppily gnawing his way through a burger, not dancing the Cha-Cha, but I'm a little curious as to how Audrina did.

Not because I'm gunning for her to win or anything. Hell, this girl's got her own reality show in the works (titled, creatively, The Audrina Show), she doesn't need to win a dancing competition to bankroll some cash.

No, the reason I'm wondering what Audrina's footwork looks like is because I can't imagine how she's going to make it across a dance floor without falling off the stage. See, I don't know if you've noticed, but ... Audrina is always looking up.

Seriously. In like every single photo I've ever seen of her, she's got the strangest expression. Sort of like a not-very-smart Siamese cat with a string dangling just above its head. Audrina is an undeniably beautiful woman, but her "ceiling eyes" make her look disconnected and ... well, like maybe the air in her head is forcing her eyeballs skyward, you know what I mean?

Do you think she practices this look? Is it supposed to be sexy? Or is it just something she can't help, like how I involuntarily claw at my own face when I hear people referring to The Hills as an "unscripted series"?

Have any of you watched her perform yet? Did she drop the ceiling eyes for the show?
