Whitney Port Reflects on The City Premiere

by at . Comments

After the first two episodes of The City premiered Monday night, the lovely Whitney Port took to the Internets to post some thoughts on her official site.

What was it like leaving L.A. for life in N.Y.C.? Or having cameras film her first date with Jay? Here's Whitney Port's take on The City - in her own words!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hey everyone! So last night was the big night - I hope all of you were able to watch The City and I would love to hear what you thought of it.

Me and my entire family gathered at my house in LA to watch it and I thought it would be fun to give you a little recap with my own take on the first two episodes - and a little juicy behind the scenes stuff too!

The episode began with an introduction of my transition from LA life to city life and I can't even tell you how sad I was to see the scene of me and [Lauren Conrad] saying goodbye. My eyes got really watery and I almost broke down.

But, within seconds excitement took over!

So the episode introduced you guys to a lot of new people! First came [Olivia Palermo], who I met on my first day at Diane Von Furstenberg.

I was already so nervous for my first day there, and it became even worse when I met her because she seemed so experienced! Olivia taught me what a socialite really is - I mean I sort of knew the parameters of what it takes to be a "social" considering I have grown up in Hollywood, but I found it so interesting that you can be completely self-made in the cutthroat environment that is New York City!

Next [Erin Lucas] was introduced. She and I actually met through our ex-boyfriends (they were best friends) at Coachella - a big music festival.

We had all stayed in an RV together there and instantly hit it off! I loved her free spirit and outgoing personality and I knew our friendship would last.

And of course, you all already knew [Jay Lyon] from The Hills! It was so crazy/surreal for me to have one of my first dates with Jay filmed! First dates are awkward enough, let alone having four cameras in your face, but our connection was so real that it didn't even phase us! I love the part where Jay does his American accent lol. I force him to do it ALL the time. It's one of my favorite things he does! My attempt at an Australian accent is something he could do without, I'm sure.

After the date, I didn't think the cameras had caught us kissing down the street, but sure enough they did!!!

The DVF fashion show was probably one of the most hectic days of my life! My first week of work and I was already working backstage at Diane Von Furstenberg's spring show and meeting her for the first time. We had an awesome front row that included Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson, Rachel Zoe, Molly Sims, and so many others - everything turned out absolutely beautifully - it was a BIG day for DVF!

Have to run out for a bit, but I'll post more from last night's episode later this afternoon! Ciao.

Whitney Port Quotes

I feel like lately, or at least since I've known you, it's been really difficult with friends, like you've had a lot of problems with friends.

Guys need to realize that they need to wait awhile and that they shouldn't be so desperate.
