This week on The City, Whitney Port went on another date with Freddie Fackelmayer, while Jay Lyon also wanted to know the status of their relationship.

Below, THG staff members pick apart the latest episode of the Whitney-centric Hills spinoff, awarding and deducting points as we see fit throughout ...

In the opening moments, we learn that Whit basically booty-called Jay Lyon while he was back in town, then quit him for good. Hence the title. Plus 8.

Kelly says how she started her own company to promote things she believes in. Wow, now our interns are even less motivated to write this. Minus 2.

Olivia Palermo actually interacts with Roxy and Whitney this week! Amazing. It's almost as if she has a reason for being on the show. Almost. Plus 4.

Freddie Fackelmayer invites his father, Fridolin, out to dinner with Whitney. Minus 2 for Fred's faux pas, and Minus 1 more because Fridolin was so awk.

It takes Roxy Olin 12 seconds to realize Olivia is bad at her job and painful in general. She's perceptive, but Minus 1 because we still had to tolerate Olivia.

This is off-topic, but Roxy was on Brothers & Sisters this week and wasn't terrible. The fact that her parents are both on that show helps, but still, Plus 5.

Could MTV have set Whitney up with a lamer guy? Dude fake tans, bleaches his teeth, spends way too lonf on his hair and is not even interesting! Minus 10.

Samantha Swetra and Whitney debate if a dude can be a socialite. We don't know the answer, but if so, Whitney's fake boyfriend is so the epitome. Plus 2.

How long until Erin Kaplan goes postal on Olivia? Plus only 2, because they're dragging it out and she's too passive-aggressive, not aggressive-aggressive.

We never thought we'd say it, but we missed Jay Lyon. He's not without fault, but at least the guy has personality. Too bad this was just a cameo. Minus 3.

TOTAL: +2. SEASON TOTAL: -15. Scores were boosted by Olivia's integration into the rest of the show and the remergence of Jay and romantic tension.

It's got a long way to go, but positive steps, City. Positive steps.

Whitney Port and Jay Lyon recently broke up, but are rumored to be back together (or at least spending time together) recently. But for those hoping to see Whitney reconcile with her ex on MTV's The City, don't bank on it.

The Aussie hasn't even signed up for the second season yet.

While Whitney's other friends, Olivia Palermo and Erin Lucas, are locked in for another round of semi-real drama in the Big Apple, Jay says he has yet to commit to the show - and therefore his chance to get back with Whitney Port.

"I’m still deciding," said Jay Lyon, who is also the singer for Tamarama. "I’m still talking with our managers and working out if it’s the right decision for [Tamarama] right now. That's the main priority at the moment and always will be."

Perhaps for good reason. The Australian band, which Jay formed with Nicolas "Pottsy" Potts, played at an event with White Tie Affair and Blue October this week, and have recently inked a deal to make an album with top producer David Kahne.

They're working on their debut album starting next week.

Two weeks ago, after events played out on an emotional season finale of The City on MTV, we reported that Whitney Port and Jay Lyon were broken up.

Just a few days after that, we reported that Whitney was spotted making out with Lipstick Jungle star Robert Buckley. Mmm! Talk about a hot couple!

Well, it looks like her fling with Buckley is as dead as Lipstick Jungle itself. Whit was seen in the West Village with none other than Lyon yesterday:

How do you feel about Whitney Port taking her Aussie beau back after all his antics on the show, City fans? Or were those antics all staged for ratings?

Either way, they sure seem happy together in the pictures below. Click to enlarge more photos of Whitney and Jay Lyon strolling through New York ...

The City star Whitney Port has split from her Australian musician boyfriend Jay Lyon, Us Weekly has confirmed. This also pretty much took place on the show.

The couple, who we saw meet on The Hills, then continued their relationship in New York on The City, decided to part ways after less than a year together.

The City creator and executive producer Adam DiVello said, “Whitney and Jay are broken up as of The City season finale. There were a few factors in their relationship that led to their split and fans saw those play out on-air."

"As we pick up where we left off when The City returns later this year, viewers will see what unfolds as we continue to follow Whitney Port and her story."

The City: Jay and Whitney

Whitney was in Vegas to celebrate her sister Ashley’s bachelorette party on Friday, and said having a relationship in front of a TV crew has been hard for her.

“It’s really difficult. Put yourself in this position. It’s hard to have an intimate relationship no matter what, whether there are cameras there or not, so it’s not the most natural thing," she said. "It kind of speeds the relationship up, and it also takes a lot of the spontaneity out of it. It's very challenging to say the least.”

While we're sad for Whitney, we think she can totally do better, as Jay Lyon was acting like more and more of an asshat in the previous couple of episodes.

Whitney Port has posted some thoughts on Monday's episode of The City on her official blog. In "Mingling with the Commoners," plenty of tension (and more than a little class warfare) was in the air between Whitney, Olivia Palermo and Jay Lyon.

Here's what Whitney Port had to say  ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this week's episode of The City, we definitely had quite the range of drama. The episode began with Jay and I discussing his upcoming show over lunch.

When I mentioned that I had invited Olivia Palermo, he made a smart ass comment about roping an area off so she wouldn't have to "mingle with the commoners," (hence the title of the episode, "Mingling With The Commoners").

Erin Lucas and I met Olivia at her apartment before heading to the show.

But Olivia wasn't exactly in as big a rush as I was to get there, and by the time she was finally ready to go, Jay's band had already started playing.

Whitney Port was far from pleased with Olivia Palermo's actions.

I guess Olivia felt bad about making us late, so she got Jay Lyon a gig at a charity event she was hosting. What initially seemed like a kind gesture, however, suddenly became an awkward and uncomfortable situation when at the event, all Olivia, Nevan and friends did was make fun of Jay and his band, Tamarama.

They definitely didn't try to hide it. It's an understatement to say that Jay was more than ready to go when he finished his set!

Aspiring fashionista Whitney Port may be sufficiently blond and likable to pass as a reality TV star. But everyone agrees she's no Lauren Conrad.

That may be trouble, not only for Port's fledgling show, The City, a spinoff of the hugely successful The Hills, but for the whole documentary-soap genre that Lauren and her cohorts pioneered, according to the UK's Globe and Mail.

Lauren Conrad will return for her fifth season of The Hills this spring, but her show is clearly nearing an end: Last fall's Season Four ratings were down 25 percent, and LC herself has indicated she may be tiring of being filmed.

Therefore, The City, which was renewed for a second season this week, may hold the future of MTV's flagship franchise in its fumbling little hands.

The new show has certainly struggled to keep the format alive.

Last week, Whitney Port and her gang were getting together at an art opening, knowing that model Alli would be in the same room with the same woman who had allegedly kissed her boyfriend while she was out of town on a fashion shoot.

But as Whitney dutifully discussed the tense situation with her colleague at DVF, Olivia Palermo, and then with her Aussie rocker boyfriend, Jay Lyon, nobody really seemed all that interested in this manufactured City crisis.

Moreover, Olivia Palermo even interrupted Port midstream to tell her this was, like, TMI, a ghastly faux pas in this celebrity gossip-dependent genre.

“Jay doesn't know why [Whitney Port] cares, and Olivia doesn't care at all,” offered Jessi Cruickshank, co-host of The After Show, an MTV Canada series devoted to dissecting the lives of the apparently real people on these youth soaps.

So can MTV trust Whitney Port to carry this show - and people to watch?

Whitney Port recently moved from The Hills to The City. It's a new City, but the drama certainly hasn't been dialed down since our girl moved East. On the contrary.

Taking time to discuss last night's episode, entitled "He Never Said He Had a Girlfriend," Whitney focused on the escalating fight between Adam Senn and his model girlfriend Allie, which we saw unfold in last week's episode.

Here's Whitney's take, as written on her official site ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In "He Never Said He Had a Girlfriend," the conflict continued between Allie and Adam. Jay and Adam threw an art gallery opening and the party had a huge turnout!

Everyone made an appearance, including Samantha's friend Catarina, who decided after a lunch chat with Samantha that it would be best to confront Allie and let her know EXACTLY what happened between her and Adam.

After hearing what Catarina had to say, Allie ran to the bathroom in tears with Adam not far behind. They left the party and after arguing outside went their separate ways.

Later on in the episode, Jay and I discussed the situation in my apartment. [Jay Lyon] had faith in his friend and chose to trust that Adam wouldn't betray Allie like that. 

I, on the other hand, was a bit more skeptical.

When she isn't being captured in revealing photos on the beach, the amazing Whitney Port can be found on MTV's new hit The City - or blogging about it!

Here's what the former co-star on The Hills had to say on her official site about Monday's episode, and yesterday's inauguration of the 44th president ...

In this week's episode of The City, "Boys Night Out," the usual dose of drama escalated to an all-time high. Adam's girlfriend Allie was finally introduced when Jay and I went on a double date with them. Allie is a model and has to travel a lot and was getting ready to leave for a photo shoot tomorrow. She asked me to keep an eye on Adam.

Meanwhile, Nevan was dealing with his own issues, expressing concerns about finding a job to [Olivia Palermo] while at an art gallery in Chelsea.

Whitney Port and badass Aussie beau Jay Lyon.

Back to Allie and Adam - [Adam Senn] and [Jay Lyon] had a boys night out, and somewhere along the line a rumor began that Adam had kissed another girl.

Adam tells Allie about the rumor as soon as she returns home from the shoot. 

She believes him but can't understand why every time she leaves town he has to have a boys night out and hang out with random girls.

As for [Nevan Donahue] and Olivia - well, it looks like Nevan is going to be making a temporary home for himself on Olivia's couch!

Whitney Port may be taking a break from city life - but the reality star is very much hard at work, filming a scene for her series The City on the beach in Miami.

Here's the former Hills star contemplating life (or meditating, or arguing with someone, or who the heck knows what else) while looking terrific in a bikini ...

Joining Whitney Port in the Sunshine State were pal Erin Lucas and beau Jay Lyon, the smooth-talking Australian rocker who displays some Justin-Bobby-like qualities.

Jay Lyon, who plays in the band Tamarama, used to date Miranda Kerr (who appeared in a Tamarama video) and was rumored to have hooked up with Tara Reid.

Gross. Anyway, click to enlarge more pics of Whitney Port in Miami ...

The Hills-turned-The City star Whitney Port took a break from her Big Apple adventures Tuesday, doing some shopping at Barney's back home in Beverly Hills.

Whitney's blue and pink flowery top won't make any celebrity fashion must have lists, but it's certainly more appropriate in L.A. than her new home of N.Y.C.!

While our girl was back in The Hills, her co-stars Jay Lyon and Adam Senn hung out in New York's SoHo neighborhood. Click to enlarge more pics of Whitney, as well as her Aussie boyfriend and his pal, in their respective cities ...
