The latest issue of UsWeekly magazine reveals that despite being close during The Hills, Lauren, 25, and Whitney, 25, are now at odds with one another.
“That was always a friendship for the show more than anything,” says an insider. “They are like any work friends who no longer work together.”
So what is the reason for the rift between the former pals? “Whitney is upset because she thinks that The City was canceled to make room for Lauren’s new reality show,” the source tells US. “Whitney feels like she got the shaft.”
The source adds that Lauren’s other former costars – with the exception of her roommate Lauren “Lo” Bosworth, 24 – consider her a foe, including Audrina Patridge, 25.
“The other girls were always jealous of Lauren,” says the source, adding that now that MTV has dropped LC’s show, “I’m sure Whitney and Audrina are loving this.”
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 Portappeared 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.
The douchebag nutjob famewhore known as Spencer Pratt decided to don a ridiculous old man disguise and try to crash the Hills‘ finale afterparty that he and his wife Heidi Montag were not invited to on Tuesday night.
UsWeekly reports Spencer stood outside the Roosevelt hotel (where the afterparty was taped) surrounded by the show’s puzzled fans. Spencer, alongside Emilio Masella, ex-boyfriend of Jersey Shore‘s Snooki –whom he’s developing a dating reality show for– were eventually escorted from the hotel property by Security police.
“I wasn’t invited to that party, so I’m having my own party with the people on the Hollywood Walk of Stars!” Spencer 26, later told Perez Hilton. He added: “I spend a lot of time being hated and I feel like I want a little closure.”
The Roosevelt hotel insiders also tell UsMagazine that Spencer tried to buy drinks for the entire bar at the hotel that afternoon — but his card was declined. And 50 seconds remain…
In other Hills news, the show is receiving a ton of criticism over it’s final scene in the finale episode. The finale scene had Kristin Cavallari say a tearful goodbye toBrody Jenner, before it’s revealed that it was all shot on the back lot of a studio, implying that the show is indeed fake and scripted. As the camera pans away, the set comes down and Kristin jumps out of the car and rushes to hug Brody.
The hollywood ending now has some fans wondering if any part of the show was even real. Photos of the cast from the finale party below.
TELL US: WERE YOU UPSET AT THE HILL’S ENDING? DO YOU THINK THE ENTIRE SHOW WAS FAKE OR JUST PARTS OF IT?
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…
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CITY FINALE, AND HILLS FINALE? DID WHITNEY BETRAY KELLY?
The show that started back in 2006 as a spin-off of Laguna Beach is finally coming to an end tonight. A quick look at the above cast photo of the current cast tells you all you need to know about the changes the show has endured since it premiered 4 years ago.
Another look at the above cast is also a great indication of why most fans of the show are more than ready for it to be finally over. Quite frankly, the Hills today is simply not the show we all fell in love with several years ago. From Heidi Montag’s atrocious cartoonish phsycial change to numerous reports of the entire show being fake and the cast actually being given scripts, it becomes more apparent as to why the show’s ratings have taken a tremendous dip in the last few seasons.
The departure of the show’s star Lauren Conrad, who has since written a best seller, and addition of the proclaimed “bitch” Kristin Cavallari, who made headlines this year for allegedly being a coke-head, definitely failed to help matters or resurrect the ailing show. And there’s no need to even touch on the additions of the random siblings, aka Stephanie Pratt and Holly Montag.
Not appearing in tonight’s finale or after-show are Spencer Pratt and wife Heidi. At first the two’s famewhoring shenanigans were obnoxious but somewhat entertaining to watch. Things however took an extreme turn for the darker side when Heidi came out this year with a new face, new boobs, new ears, new butt, new stomach, and new thighs. Just like that, the Heidi/Spencer union stopped being funny. The world suddenly realized just how troubled these two really were.
But the worst had yet to come. Reports then came out that Spencer was kicked off the show for 6 weeks after threatening to kill a female producer on the show. Spencer’s hiatus from the show however became permanent when he and his wife falsely accused the show’s creator, Adam Divello, of sexually harassing Heidi.
Returning tonight are the show’s alums, Lauren and Whitney Port. Lauren jumped ship last year, while Whitney left the show 2 years ago to star on The City. The two will be appearing on the Hill’s after show. The Hills series finale airs tonight at 10:00pm Eastern.
Above is the season 1 cast photo of the show back when it was real as well as a before and after of Heidi, kind of puts things into perspective uh?
Moving right along. In true famewhore fashion, there are now reports that Spencer Pratt is planning to crash the Hills’ after show party tonight. PEOPLE magazine reports the 26-year-old reality-douche tweeted on Tuesday: “Booking my room @Roosevelt Hotel Hollywood now that I have no place to live I think i should just move in there today (to) stay near the action.”
It just so happens that the Hollywood Roosevelt is the location of tonight’s finale party for the show. Spencer and his “estranged” wife Heidi are however not on the guest list. Guess it’s a chance you take as a famewhore when you decide to falsely accuse the hands that feed you of sexual harassment. The chances of Spencer making it into the party tonight is likely a big zero.
