Olivia Palmero doesn't care what Erin Kaplan's opinion is.
This was a central theme of The City last night, as it is in every episode. But rarely are feelings in this feud declared so overtly. Talk about taking it to a new level!
Meanwhile, will Roxy Olin actually prove her worth?
Amazingly, these much-maligned aspiring fashionistas both boosted their stock in a solid episode of The Hills spinoff, which continues to entertain and surprise.
We begin THG's +/- recap of last night's The City, "One Girl's Trash," with Olivia preparing for a shoot with Ke$ha by visiting the Trash & Vaudeville store:
TRASH THIS: We often do, but Olivia surprisingly salvaged the Ke$ha shoot.
The owner suggests a pair of spiked boots which Kyle asks Olivia to try on. She does but refuses to walk around the store in them. Too much effort for O. Plus 3.
Whitney Port is preparing to showcase her collection at a buyers' event. Too bad Roxy is her right-hand man ... woman. Minus 4, because she's a total liability.
At the office, Kate goes over the items for the Ke$ha shoot. Plus 5 for when Seth asks Olivia if Erin approved the accessories and Olivia does not give a f*%k.
Louise Roe says she doesn't want Olivia to think she is taking her position. Olivia says she doesn't think that. We call BS on both of these catty liars. Minus 11.
For the shoot, Louise and Olivia both suggest Nicholas Kirkwood. "Great minds think alike!" L says. Or Louise Roe and Olivia Palermo for that matter. Minus 3.
ON THE ROX: Whit's relationship with her old friend sure was ... for a bit.
After a buyer cancels a big order, Kelly tells Whitney to let it burn so she remembers this, and saves millions down the line. Plus 8 for Kell's blunt, sage wisdom.
Whitney blames Roxy for losing the sale and stresses over the unsold merchandise. Minus 5, but might Roxy redeem herself? At least she's going to try ...
Ke$ha arrives and is full on impressed by the shoes and purse Olivia suggests. Seth says it's like she read Joe and Ke$ha's minds. Color us shocked. Plus 9.
Sure enough, Roxy pursues and makes a sale to a chic boutique, WiNK, which wants pieces by this weekend. She delivers! Color us shocked again! Plus 9.
After the Elle brass looks at the Ke$ha pictures, Olivia insists it was all her and that Erin's "masterplan" to "pin" her against Louise won't work. Plus 10.
TOTAL: +23. SEASON: -30.
