Amid an endless sea of cat fights, drunken nights and Spencer Pratt bound bites, the stabilizing influence of The Hills has always been the lovely Whitney Port.
We first saw the striking blonde-haired, blue-eyed Whitney when she was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed co-intern of Lauren Conrad at Teen Vogue.
Since then, she's been promoted to a full-time "fashion contributor" at Teen Vogue and has been a greater focal point of The Hills than ever.
New York's Papermag.com was lucky enough to interview the beautiful and sage friend of LC recently, just prior to the start of The Hills' third season. Here's what Ms. Port had to say about fame, life and, of course, hair products.
Q: Where are you right now?
Whitney Port: In L.A., at my sister's 20th birthday party. We went out to a little lunch, me and my two sisters and my mom. The four girls.
Q: What did you do for premiere of The Hills?
Whitney Port: I kind of stay out of everything. I went out of town for two weeks, so I wasn't be in the middle of the craziness. I'm going to Missouri with my whole family - we've been going every year since I was born. And yes, we have TV there!
Q: How is this season different than the first two? For you, personally?
Whitney Port: Yeah, this season... we are finding ourselves more as women and revealing more of ourselves. It is still very hard for me to show my private life.
Whitney Port: I don't like letting myself be vulnerable... I don't like having my life controlled by other people.
