Love It Or Leave It: Whitney Port’s Blousy Blouse

I like to think that "The City" and "The Hills" alum Whitney Port occasionally has a David Byrne "This is not my beautiful house, this is not my beautiful life, how did I get here?" moment. Because hey, she seems relatively sane and well-adjusted and, I dunno, way smarter than most of her reality TV…

“The City”‘s Erin Moving To Teen Vogue

Our favorite character on MTV's series "The City" was never super saccharine Whitney Port or hyper-villainous Olivia Palermo--it was Elle PR head Erin Kaplan. Kaplan's side-eye glare and over-boiled frustration said what we all felt about Palermo's conniving ways. Well, now she's got a new gig -- as head PR honcho at Teen Vogue. The…

RIP, “The City”

"The Hills" got a hugely-hyped series finale episode, complete with a trick ending. It's cousin show, "The City," however has gone out with a whimper. The season two finale showed Roxy Olin moving out and Whitney Port duking it out with Kelly Cutrone after going to hear what a competing PR firm had to say.

Socialite Olivia Palermo Designs Bib Necklaces … To Spill Your Caviar Breakfast On?

Despite the fact that socialite, ahem, we mean, serious fashion journalist for Elle.com, Olivia Palermo was portrayed as the villain on MTV's "The City," there's no denying that the girl has good style.

What Ever Happened To That English Chick On “The City”?

Hey "City" fans. Remember Louise Roe, Olivia Palermo's Elle rival? (Seriously, that girl has one too many nemeses.) We know that "The City" was so scripted, but we were nevertheless fascinated by the introduction of the English TV personality ... probably because her role in the show seemed the most contrived of all. C'mon, don't…

Theory: Whitney Port Is Both Of Rachel Zoe’s Assistants In Disguise

Am I the only one who can't tell the assistants on "The Rachel Zoe Project" apart? I thought these gals were the same person until I heard Rachel whining both the names "Jordan" and "Ashley." True, Ashley Avignone's hair is a little darker than Jordan's. But the women have eerily similar facial features and must…

Elle Creative Director Joe Zee Wanders New York City In A Chanel Fur Suit

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Joe Zee. But if you watch "The City," Elle magazine's creative director comes across as fun but a little bit of a hard-nose. Here, though, in this hilarious video, we get to see another side of Zee, making fun of himself. For some reason, Zee decided it…

“The City”‘s Roxy Olin Takes You On A Tour Through Her Closet

On "The City," Roxy Olin, er, plays Whitney Port's BFF. At first, I wasn't sure about Roxy. So sassy. So defiant. So trouble-starter-ish. Yet, she has known grown on me, and Kelly Cutrone, too, obviously, so now I am on Team Roxy. I mean, compared to Olivia Palermo, this girl is a saint. Bluefly paid…

How Are We Feeling About “The City” These Days?

My fascination with "The City" ebbs and flows, but for some intangible reason, I always drift back into it. Maybe it has something to do with the facts that Olivia Palermo fascinates me (she kinda reminds me of Fallon from "Dynasty"), it's always interesting to see the behind-the-scenes at Elle -- Joe Zee is so…

Season Two Of “The City” Looks Like A Snoozefest

Even though last season of "The City" wasn't so great, I'm still rooting for Whitney Port. I hoped that season two would be a little juicier.

Just when I had convinced myself that I actually enjoyed the first season of MTV’s “The City,” Lauren, Heidi, Spencer, Audrina, and the rest of “The Hills” crew are back, like the back-stabbing best friends I never had.
