The female cast members of The Hills haven't been afraid to drag their real-life loves in front of the camera. This season, singer Ryan Cabrera isn't exactly shying away from starring opposite current girlfriend, Audrina Patridge. If you've watched the MTV show and seen all the previews, you've seen how these two lovebirds are inseparable.

However a source close to The Hills production tells X17online exclusively:

    "All Ryan Cabrera wants is attention. People have to remember that he got famous on The Ashlee Simpson Show back in '04 when they were dating. He's just using Audrina to get his failing music career back."

Back in Season 5, Paris' ex Doug Reinhardt was riding Lauren Conrad's coattails on the show ...even taking LC to prom. No surprise that relationship ended quickly after the season wrapped, with some sources saying, "Doug was a fame whore and Lauren finally realized it." Fast forward to this year, and Doug found himself in a reality mess yet again. This time, Paris Hilton reportedly discovered that Doug was secretly shopping around a reality show about them as a couple. Miss P wasn't happy about it, and quickly kicked her boy toy to the curb.

So how bout' Hills hottie Brody Jenner's current relationship with punk princess Avril Lavigne? X17 photographers captured the first pictures (CLICK HERE to see those) of the odd couple making out in public.

As for Deryck Whibley's ex appearing on the show, a source close to Brody tells X17online:

    "Avril wants to stay as far away from the Hills as possible. She is completely fine when it comes to money, and she doesn't need the extra fame. Everyone already knows who she is."

Our source adds, "Plus, Avril has absolutely nothing in common with those spoiled b*tches."
