Olivia Palermo

As a lover of fashion, bad television, and all things post-Simple Life Nicole Richie, you would think I'd be all over NBC's Fashion Star.  However, I am not.  I just couldn't get into it to save my life…and this is coming from someone who plans to dress as Austin Scarlett from Project Runway for Halloween this year.  To be fair, there are only so many hours in a day, so much space on my DVR, and, in addition to ridiculous amount of reality television I watch both for blogging and pleasure (it's fab too when those overlap!), I am also addicted Law and Order: SVU, HIMYM, and Happy Endings.  It's A LOT of television.

I'm going to give it another chance though this season, and here's why: Elle Macpherson, the show's creator and former host has chosen Louise Roe to replace her, and I think it's an interesting change-up for the series.  Not that I don't like Elle (she had a great work-out video back in the late '90s), but she's just not made for hosting.  Sure, she's drop-dead gorgeous, but did you see her on Friends?  It's like watching paint dry.  Louise Roe has the fashion knowledge AND the hosting chops…not to mention she's just obscure enough to be intriguing. 

Who am I kidding?  Jessica Simpson is still on the show, and she hasn't been relevant since she divorced Nick Lachey.  I doubt I need to point out what a sad state of affairs it is when an ex-boy bander from a boy band on the fringe of legitimate boy bands makes one relevant, but I digress.  How did Fashion Star even get picked up for a sophomore season?

On last night’s episode of Project Runway, the designers repeated the same challenge from the week before – except this time they got to use real models – and most of the looks STILL didn’t improve! Ok, just kidding – last week they weren’t supposed to be recreating bad 70’s Halloween costumes, they just all did, incidentally. BUT last night the challenge was to look to the past. Also, I’m just gonna put this out there – the winner and the loser essentially made the same thing…

Tim Gunn meets the designers in the workroom where he is standing with Heather Archibald, Head Apparel Designer for Piperlime.com. I don’t know if you were aware, based on the fact that they repeat it over and over, but Piperlime provides all the accessories for the show. The challenge is actually to make a sophisticated seventies INSPIRED (not recreated) look. And it has to be separates. The winning design will be produced and sold on – guess where? Piperlime!

MTV The City

Following two painful seasons of The City, the show will not be returning for a third.

MTV officially confirmed the cancellation news on Monday just hours after Whitney Port appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show. “As of right now it doesn’t really look like we’re doing it anymore,” stated Whitney.

“‘The City’ will not be returning to MTV for season three,” an MTV spokesperson said. “Whitney has been a part of our family for many years and we wish her and the cast the best, and hope to collaborate with them again.”

Whitney, who currently has her own fashion line, seems to be taking things in stride and already has plans to move on. “I’m working on some other things,” she told Ryan. “It’s OK — one door closes and another opens.”

The City began as a spin-off from “The Hills,” which was one of MTV’s highest-rated reality shows of all time. This news doesn’t come as a major surprise though as The Hills was also canceled this year, and the ratings for The City just never matched the success of The Hills.

Just weeks after her co-star Roxy Olin came out slamming her, saying she is as nasty in real life as she is on tv, Olivia Palermo is now attempting to defend herself or her reputation for being difficult and arrogant rather.

The City star tells an Australian magazine, “I’d like to think that I’m the complete opposite of what you see on The City.” And when it comes to her off-screen friendship with co-star Whitney Port, she best describes it as a “working relationship”.

She adds: “We’re both incredibly busy, but we always try and take a few moments to catch up whenever we bump into each other, which is rare.”

Olivia also isn’t taking too well to being compared to Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf. “From what I heard, Blair’s not a very nice character. I’m nothing like that so I beg to differ,” she said.

In other City news, the season finale aired last night and brought us more drama than we are used to on the show. Earlier this season, we saw Whitney and Roxy fight over a celebrity styling session, leading to Roxy moving out. However last night’s finale was all about Whitney vs Kelly Cutrone.

It all starts when Whitney meets with Alison Brod, owner of Alison Brod PR, to see what they can do for her Whitney Eve line if she hires them. Alison then goes around telling people that Whitney has fired Kelly and hired her. This of course gets back to Kelly, leading to a sit down with Whitney.

“I don’t know how this can go from me helping you to me getting fired,” says Kelly. Whitney apologizes but Kelly isn’t too forgiving. Roxy then informs Whitney that her loyalty lies with Kelly, basically letting Whitney know she will go with Kelly if Whitney decides to change PR firms. And end season…

Roxy-OlinOlivia Palermo

We are now in the third season of The City, and the question every seems to want an answer to is does Olivia Palermo act off camera as she does on the show?

Olivia, who has been on the show since its first season, is portrayed as being arrogant and overly domineering on the MTV hit show.

In a new interview with Zap2it, Olivia’s castmate Roxy Olin reveals that she might be even worse off camera.  “Olivia is like that or even worse,” Roxy tells Zap2it. “I don’t know where the entitlement came from. I was raised with no matter what job you have, you treat everyone equal. “

Roxy adds, “My mom (Patricia Wettig of “Brothers & Sisters”) is from Nowheresville and earned every penny, so every penny counts. Olivia acts so privileged. Have you even earned it? I can’t comprehend it, even if you are so rich or so out there.”

“It’s so cutthroat in the fashion world, why take yourself that seriously?” Roxy wonders. “What do you gain from it? It must be really lonely for Olivia. Don’t you want to be involved and have someone to talk to? I guess she makes good TV. Maybe she will look at herself and say, ‘I look like an idiot’.”

Oddly enough, Olivia, who failed to get an important interview with Marc Jacobs on the last episode, faces the threat of being fired on the next episode of The City.

The City's Olivia, Whitney, Erin and Roxy

Great news for The Hills and The City fans as MTV has now renewed The Hills for season six and The City for season three.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the new seasons of both shows will air sometime in 2010.  Production on The City’s 3rd season will begin this week while The Hills’ 6th season will go into production in early January.

The finales of both shows aired this week, and EW was able to chat The series’ respective stars, Kristin Cavallari and Whitney Port, about their decisions to continue with the shows. “I’ve had the best time—I really have,” says Kristin . “I feel like I have the best job! Why not?!” Kristin also says she’s no longer worried about being pegged as a reality TV star. “It’s like I’m in it now,” she admits. “I might as well keep going!”

The upcoming season of The City will focus much more on Whitney’s attempt to succeed with her own fashion line. “That’s my reality,” says Whitney. “It’s where this collection is going to be sold, who we’re going to put it on, what magazines it’s going to be on.” We’ll also get a peak into Port’s social life and friendships. “Just Roxy and I exploring the city together a little bit more and learning who we are.”

Audrina Patridge will not be returning to the Hills’ new season as she will now begin filming her own upcoming solo reality show for MTV.

Things are bound to heat up on tonight’s episode of The City, as the tension mounts between Olivia Palermo and her colleague, Elle’s PR Director Erin Kaplan, over wardrobe for a television shoot.

On tonight’s episode, we get to see the two women disagree on an assignment. Erin makes an executive decision to send some of the clothes picked out by Olivia back. “I know what the producers want,” she says. “I’ve done more than my share of segments for TV.” This leaves Olivia annoyed of course, who then confronts her colleague for speaking to her dismissively. “Erin,” she asks, “would you talk to [Creative Director] Joe in the tone that you talk to me?”

“You’re not Joe,” Erin fires back. “When are you creative director of the magazine?” The argument continues as Olivia demands respect, leading Erin to then send an assistant out of the room, as the two continue to argue.

On the other side of the city, over at People’s Revolution, we get to see Roxy Olin‘s attempt to help Whitney Port/ impress her boss Kelly Cutrone fall short.

The City airs Tuesdays 10:30/9:30c on MTV.
