The City Season Finale: Whitney Sells Out Kelly

by at . Comments

The second season of The City came to an end last night. Is Whitney Port's relationship with Kelly Cutrone also over after the events we just saw play out?

When Whitney is approached by a PR woman, she quickly gets in over her head and finds herself torn between a new opportunity and her loyal supporter.

What will she decide? Here's THG's +/- recap ...

Kelly thinks it might be too early to be doing press because Whitney Port could actually end up with more orders than she can handle. Sage words. Plus 4.

Joe has Louise interview Karolina Kurkova. Keith thinks Louise has more of a TV style and Olivia's subdued approach is better for Elle.com. Really? Minus 1.

GOLDEN GIRL: Somehow, Olivia Palermo is in Elle's good books.

In Tokyo, the editor-in-chief suggests Olivia should appear on stage with the designers at a party that night so Akiko can ask her about her style. No way that would happen if she weren't on an MTV reality show, but neat! Plus 6.

Roxy Olin tells Zach she is angry about Whitney. Girl, get over it. Minus 2.

Whitney meets Alison Brod, owner of Alison Brod PR, who says they will do everything they can for Whitney Eve line if she hires them. Thin ice, Whit ... Minus 3.

Erin asks Joe who will be the new face of Elle's website. He says he hasn't decided yet, but he's hearing some great things about what Olivia is doing in Japan. Erin blatantly lobbies for Louise by mentioning her other job offer. Plus 4.

Kelly calls Whitney into her office. Dun-dun-dunnnnn!! Plus 5.

PORT OF CALL: Will Whitney jump ship from Kelly Cutrone's tutelage?

Alison has been telling people that Whitney fired Kelly and hired her. Whitney quickly apologizes and Kelly says that Alison's claims are making her look like an ambitious idiot, but Kelly's right, she got herself into this mess. Minus 4.

At a boardroom meeting, Joe announces that Olivia Palermo will be the new face of the Elle website and says he is sorry for Louise to be leaving. Erin Kaplan is not happy. "Are you OK with that?" asks Olivia with a smile. Plus 8, b!tch.

Roxy later tells Whitney that her loyalty is to Kelly. "If you sign with Alison things will change with you and Kelly," warns young Ms. Olin. Such integrity! Plus 3.

Seemingly unclear of what to do, Whitney appears deep in thought as Roxy walks away ... think this was dramatized at all? Minus 5, because we assume so.

FINALE TOTAL: +9. SEASON TOTAL: +5.

I love Olivia she can be a pretender but "oh boy" Olivia is good at keeping her enemies closer, she looks out for herself and only herself "yes" but in the fashion business if you aint a BICTH you are not going no place at all. Props to Olivia she's definitely a smart girl , she may have stabbed Whitney in the back and may have need to apologise , but well she sure Pisses off Erin and for that I am a FAN of Olivia. =D

Olivia is a pretender. Let her be the face of Elle, and Joe will rue the day he went for cotton candy over dark chocolate. I think less of Elle.
