Whitney Port has spent enough time on reality TV to be wary of it. It can bring out the worst in people and blur lines between reality and reality TV. And now that she has decided to return to the medium, Whitney is sharing her thoughts on coming back to it all and how she has meshed with her former costars.
Whitney was Lauren Conrad’s coworker on The Hills. She handled herself with grace and stayed above the fray for the most part. Whitney basically sat in a closet with Lauren for two years and functioned as a soundboard to everyone else’s drama. Then she landed her own show, The City, for two seasons.
Whitney Port may be regretting her time on reality TV. The former star of The City thinks that her career onscreen is the reason she has been shunned by some LA moms. Whitney filmed her reaction to being a victim of “passive aggressive bullying,” and shared it on her Youtube channel.
Whitney appeared in The Hills from 2006-2008 as Lauren Conrad’s co-worker at Teen Vogue. She also starred in her own spinoff show The City for two seasons. Whitney always came off as very reliable, level-headed, and drama free. She is now a mom to two-year-old son Sonny. So what was the inspiration for her video called, “I love My Baby But…Mom Bullies Can F Off!”?
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 the heels of the revelation that Lauren Conrad will be leaving The Hills after this 5th season, is news that Audrina is planning to do the same!
The 23 year old Hills star has teamed up with Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice) for a proposed new series will follow Patridge’s personal and professional life. The show will be shopped around to networks next week.
Though MTV refuses to confirm anything, it is becoming more and more obvious that this will be the Hill’s final season. The other rumor is that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag will be getting their own newlywed type reality show on MTV (Yawns). Guess if Whitney Port can get her own reality show, so can Audrina.
