Roxy Olin is not shy about admitting she joined The City to boost her career.
The daughter of Brothers & Sisters cast members Patricia Wettig and Ken Olin, she's grown up around actors and actresses, which she aspires to be.
"When I was considering joining, my dad was like, reality is the new generation - either you can run with it or you can get left behind," Roxy said.
"My parents thought it sounded cool, like nothing they'd ever done before ... now my dad wants to be on it! I think he's going to be on an episode."
Regardless, the second season of The City kicks off this evening at 10:30 on MTV, right after The Hills. It centers mainly on Hills alum Whitney Port.
Olin is her BFF, roommate and co-worker at People's Revolution, the fashion PR company featured on Bravo's Kell on Earth, run by Kelly Cutrone.
Whitney Port and Roxy Olin return on The City tonight.
The series also stars socialite Olivia Palermo and Elle PR director Erin Kaplan, who if history is any indication, will really hate each other every episode.
As for what we can expect from the show's leading lady?
"Whitney steps into the exciting territory of being a fashion designer, but she also becomes an adult and true professional," producer Liz Gately says.
"She really takes ownership of her line, which is exciting and we pull back the curtain on how a young designer gets it all together," added Gately.
Roxy Olin will be there to support Port, but she also has her own ups and downs: "There's a lot of me trying to find who I am here in New York."
She aims to use the show to help her acting career.
"I'm going to start auditioning soon. [A reality show] could help or hurt; we'll see."
"I always tell myself, if Justin Timberlake could make it out of a boy band, there's hope. At the least, I've gotten more comfortable in front of the camera."
