We realize that as a show about women in fashion, MTV's The City is bound to cross-promote certain magazines, designers and brands ... but this is getting ridic.

Both will return for new seasons next year!

The City Quotes

From the beginning of The Hills, I was very career-oriented. I had had a boyfriend for the first year and a half, and I made a conscious effort to keep that to myself. I just didn't want to be that vulnerable.
