Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge
The Hills' pseudo-drama heated up on Friday when a PerezHilton.com blurb claimed that Lauren Conrad had hooked up with gal pal Audrina Patridge's on-again/-off again beau, Justin "Bobby" Brescia.

"I'm not sure what to believe," Audrina fretted via her Celebuzz blog. "Though Justin and I have not been exclusive for quite some time, these rumors are very confusing and hurtful."

LC was quick to dispel the alleged diss, telling In Touch, "These accusations are so crazy it's difficult for me to take them seriously." She then added — and this is the only reason I picked up this story — "While my usual taste in guys isn't always perfect, I do prefer they shower regularly."

Seriously, Bruce Vilanch couldn't top stuff like that.

LC then went to MySpace to hint that the less-enhanced half of arch enemy Speidi was behind the bogus buzz, saying, "Hmm... I wonder who [leaked the rumor to Perez]? Who is someone that I do not get along with, that possibly has too much time on his hands (between pathetically staged paparazzi shots)?"

Kitten's got some claws! Love it.
