The City Recap: Whitney Port Gets a Curtain Call, Olivia Palermo Gets to Keep a Job Somehow

by at . Comments

Last week was a rough one career-wise as Olivia Palermo was put on the chopping block and Whitney Port was basically told she's not a real designer on The City.

This week marked a renaissance of sorts for both. Olivia rose to the occasion somehow and avoided being fired, while Whit's fashion show in Miami was a big hit.

Here's THG's plus-minus recap of last night's The City ...

Whitney Port travels to Miami with Roxy Olin (for some reason) and feels the pressure of competition and putting on a show without Kelly. Real world, girl. Plus 5.

Olivia vows her "personal relationship" with Zac Posen will score an interview. We've heard that before. Minus 4. But Joe Zee says get it or you're fired! Plus 4.

Miraculously, Olivia was able to stomach doing some actual work.

When model Erica is seen with another designer, she suggests "sharing" but Whitney basically calls dibs. Models. Just like pieces of meat, we tell you. Plus 7.

At the launch party, Olivia poses on the red carpet (obviously, because she's a star) before Joe sends her to get Zac ... then decides to tail her a$$. Plus 8.

Impressed, Joe says this is "the reason he hired" Olivia. Minus 19, because dude, she got lucky like once, and should have been fired months ago. Get real.

Seriously, how is getting an interview with someone she already knew in any way impressive? Unless Joe just means he hired her for publicity ... okay, Wash.

At a Miami boutique, Whitney and Roxy Olin decide her designs would fit in well. Roxy is actually useful and meets the buyer, who agrees to peep it. Plus 5.

Editor-in-chief Robbie and editorial director Keith watch Olivia. Erin says they should compare it to Louise Roe's recent interview. Dun-dun-dunnn! Plus 6.

Whitney Eve is a hit - and not just with THG!

Amazingly, they determine that "everyone has their strengths" and "Olivia is good at what she does." No idea what that would be, but sure thing! Minus 11.

Louise and Olivia meet and hit it off. Plus 4, since Olivia is either clueless about Louise angling to take her job, or just doesn't care, since MTV won't let her.

Roxy appears to be quite frustrated about the apparent disorganization at the show. Roxy? Complaining about a lack of focus? Who'd have guessed. Minus 5.

Despite setbacks, the show is a success, and Whitney Port takes a well-deserved curtain call - and Shari and Pamela decide to carry Whitney Eve! Plus 10.

No matter how many doors are open for Whitney because of her fame, you have to at least respect how seriously she takes her line, and hope it succeeds.

TOTAL: +10. SEASON: -53.

Olivia has had botox at 24? That's just bizarre. She looks quite lovely, but she'll end up looking like Nancy Pelosi by the time she's 30, if she keeps that up. I'm curious about her mouth though, which frequently looks as if it's almost frozen shut. She seems to be speaking through clenched teeth. The lovely Japanese ladies exclaimed to Olivia, "You have such a small face!" Ah yes, such a small face, and such a small mouth, but such a large ego! And so very much ill will towards other young and talented women. Perhaps botox paralyzes one's heart as well as one's wrinkles.

Olivia= nose job, veneers, fake tan, fake eyelashes, four tons of foundation and a variety of other make-up products, and a hell of a lot of botox. There's beauty for you :)
