Sources have confirmed to E! Online that MTV is officially spinning off The Hills into another reality TV show starring the beautiful Whitney Port.
Emily Brill, the 20-something daughter of Steve Brill, the founder of Court TV (now known as TruTV), blogged about this big news last week:
“Last night, MTV’s The City (The Hills spinoff starring Whitney Port) shot a dinner party scene at [socialite] Olivia Palermo’s apartment. Participants included Whitney Port, Whitney’s boyfriend [Jay Lyon, we presume] and Olivia Palermo.”
We have no idea who Olivia Palermo is, really, other than a New York socialite who dates Brad Leinhardt (a.k.a. The Golden Jew). We also have no idea if she will be a co-star on The City or just happened to be in this one scene.
THE CITY STAR(S): The Hills' Whitney Port, right, and Olivia Palermo.
The City will apparently follow Whitney Port as she leaves L.A. and begins working for celebrity fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg in New York City.
It is set to begin airing in early 2009, supposedly, although MTV has not officially said this. Nor have Lauren Conrad and friends on The Hills.
