We tend to forget Whitney Port was once a part of The Hills. It's easy to, since it's currently so bad, and our favorite stars (Whit and LC) are gone.

Port has since moved to The City, but the SoCal girl still has plenty to say about The Hills and her spinoff series. Excerpts from her chat with E!:

On the coming season: Not as much relationship drama. It shows us four girls trying to make a name for ourselves in fashion, which is difficult because it seems 75 percent of the people in New York are trying to do the same thing.

On boyfriend Ben Nemtin: Um, everything's good. Everything's good, yeah.

On whether he will be on The City: No, no, no, no.

On The Hills' final season: I think it's ending on a strong note. I think that they are going out with the popularity still being really high. It's bittersweet for me. I remind myself still that I was once on it. It seems so far away now.

On shark jumping: The show was different when I was part of it. I think when [Lauren Conrad] left, a lot of the authenticity and spark went with her.

On Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne: Well, if they're happy, more power to 'em! That's so funny ... I don't mean funny like they're funny together. I just didn't expect it. But sometimes the greatest things are unexpected, you know?

On Heidi Montag's sexual harassment claim: [Just kidding, she wasn't asked about that nonsense ... we're just making sure you're still with us]

Erin, Whitney, Roxy and Olivia return in two weeks.

Whitney Port and Ben Nemtin are heating up Chicago. That's right, the WINDY City!

The relationship made in MTV heaven, pairing up The City and The Buried Life stars, began earlier this year when they started "hanging out," and has gotten serious.

Nemtin recently helped Port celebrate her 25th birthday during an intimate bash at the Los Angeles restaurant Cecconi's. Things only got more romantic from there.

When Ben Nemtin needed to be in Chicago last week to film The Oprah Winfrey Show for an episode scheduled to air April 9, Whitney joined him in the Windy City.

Not that it was all business.

MTV HOTTIES: Whitney Port and Ben Nemtin.

The new couple kicked back at the Chicago hotspot The Underground on Saturday night. In between sips of Patron, Port chatted up and planted kisses on her guy.

Also on hand? The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris and fiancee Ed Swiderski chatting with club owner Billy Dec. But back to Port and Nemtin. Says a club source:

"They were definitely flirty and affectionate all night."

Here's hoping they stay that way - what a cute pair!

Whitney Port’s design career is taking off in stores, on the runway, and on MTV's The City. Looks like our girl's a rising star in the celebrity fashion world. Right?

Well, she's officially hit a snag in the form of a lawsuit just filed by designer Adrienne Baravetto, who claims she helped Whitney Port design and launch her line.

In 2007, Baravetto alleges she had an oral agreement with Port and her father, Jeff, including a $80,000 yearly salary plus a 25 percent stake in the company.

Baravetto also alleges that she did virtually all the design work and that the Ports haven’t paid her a dime. Pretty shady if so. But is this claim even legitimate?

Port’s lawyer Michael A. Taitelman said the following:

Did Whitney Port cut out a former design collaborator?

“The lawsuit that Adrienne Baravetto filed against Whitney Eve, Inc., Whitney Port and others regarding the Whitney Eve clothing line is baseless and without merit. Whitney Port is, and always has been, the designer of Whitney Eve."

"Baravetto worked for Whitney Eve for a short period of time ending in early 2008. For more than two years, she has been silent. For reasons that we will uncover, she has decided to make these unsubstantiated allegations at this time."

"The defendants will vigorously defend themselves, and upon the successful conclusion of this lawsuit, intend to hold Baravetto and her counsel accountable.”

Sounds confident. Counters Baravetto’s attorney Peter Maretz, “Ms. Baravetto did the heavy lifting for these designs and she just wants to get paid fairly.”

Whitney Port turns 25 today. Happy birthday, girl!

Ever since we first got to know Whitney on The Hills, she's been a favorite of THG's. There's a lot to love about the sweet, genuine, expressive SoCal cutie.

While she began her reality TV career as BFF and co-worker of Lauren Conrad, she soon moved on to her own show, The City, chronicling her move to NYC.

There, Whitney Port only endeared herself to us more, even if some of the men (Freddie Fackelmayer) and friends (Roxy Olin) in her life are exasperating.

Gorgeous Whitney

Happy birthday, Whitney!

We look forward to watching her life and fashion career continue to evolve in the coming year(s), and can't wait for the new season of her hit series. 

Here's a little photo tribute we put together for The City star. Click to enlarge the images below and leave a comment with your birthday greetings ...

Last we heard, Whitney Port had a new man in her life. But are she and The Buried Life star Ben Nemtin an official couple, or still in the beginning stages?

We ask because Whit has been soliciting dates on her official site, and asking fans to weed out the prospects. Not a bad project for fans of The City star.

In honor of the new movie She's Out of My League, Whitney Port is doing a promotion where a lucky applicant can win a date with her in the Big Apple.

Understandably, there was no shortage of applicants.

Looking For a Date

"Thanks so much to everyone who entered to win a date with me!" she wrote.

"I had so much fun reading all of your comments, and after a lot of thought I was able to narrow it down to five semi-finalists who I had submit videos." 

"I wanted to share them with you so you could help me pick a winner," Whitney Port added. "Please leave comments and help me decide who I should choose!"

Sadly, none of our interns were picked. Which is too bad, because they seriously heart Whitney. Oh well. To help our girl screen prospective dates, click here.

She may really need our help, too. The taste she's shown on two seasons of The City has been suspect. Freddie Fackelmayer? Please tell us that was staged.

Whitney Port spoke on City life (living in New York, that is, not specifically about her reality show) and her new fashion line in an interview with Zink magazine.

The publication's stylists fashioned Whitney in the style of Jerry Hall, using Port's own clothes of course. The result was classically glamorous and a little racy.

Naturally, she can pull off both. She should be a model if her designing career doesn't work out! Speaking of her clothing line, Whitney is inspired by the street.

Literally, that is. She takes her camera out every day looking for inspiration for her designs. That will get you a good feel for the customer, that's for sure!

New York Fashion Week is all about trying out some new things, and as a budding fashionista herself, Whitney Port rose to the challenge with two new hairstyles.

The City star tried soft waves at one event before then switching to tousled curls at the Rebecca Taylor runway show. There are two things we know for sure:

  • She can pull off both very well
  • Ben Nemtin is one lucky fella!

Which of her two new looks do you like best on Whitney Port, though? It's a tough decision, we know, but we think you're up for it. Vote in our survey below!

Whitney Port hasn't been lucky in love since moving from The Hills to The City (and thus LA to NYC). First there was Jay Lyon. Then Freddie Fackelmayer.

Tools. Particularly the latter.

Well, if recent rumors are true, things might finally be looking up. Whitney Port has a new love interest and he's the star of an MTV reality show as well!

It's The Situation!

Kidding.

Seriously, she and Ben Nemtin of The Buried Life are dating. "I've kind of been hanging out with Whitney when I am in New York," he told Ryan Seacrest.

Ben Nemtin is the new boyfriend of Whitney Port. Unless this is just a PR stunt for The Buried Life, which would totally not surprise us even a little. That said, cute couple!

Asked him whether the two were dating, Ben responded that they had just met and once again added that they hung out whenever he was in New York.

Sources say they are hanging out as more than friends, though, and Whitney Port certainly has been tweeting a lot about The Buried Life these days.

Makes you think!

"If U love dancing as much as I do watch @theburiedlife compete in a krump competition on mtv U guys better teach me your moves," Whitney wrote.

Sounds like confirmation to us! You better be good to our girl Ben Nemtin. You better be on The City, too, since MTV already has you under contract.

Many celebrities resort to plastic surgery to enhance their looks.

Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, alumni of The Hills, are not among them, as both are committed to staying beautiful naturally. This interview with them is from late last year, but is still topical in light of the recent Heidi Montag plastic surgery debacle.

“I think it’s a personal thing,” Whitney, now star of The City, tells me. “They feel like it’s necessary and it’s going to make them feel more confident."

If that's what they believe, "then more power to them," she adds.

Lauren Conrad says the need for plastic surgery stems from fame.

Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad are all-natural (and all-cute)!

“It’s hard because you’re in that position where you’re being criticized for everything,” LC, whose novel L.A. Candy is getting the silver screen treatment.

“Do you ignore it, and try to be beautiful on your own and be happy with the way you look? or do you listen to the criticism. They put them on this platform, and they tear them apart and then they criticize them even more for changing themselves."

"I think you just try and be confident with the way you are.”

Although Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad don’t admit to enhancing their looks through surgery, that doesn't mean they don't make the best of their natural features.

Whitney says that among her go-to beauty products are Fresh Black Tea eye cream, and she also wears Trish McEvoy #3 perfume, Snowdrop and Crystal Flowers.

LC, who says her eyes look “round and boyish,” swears by Mark’s Get In Line liquid eyeliner. For scents, “I wear 15 different perfumes. Anything with a gardenia.”

Whitney Port laughs, “Oh, so does my mom.”
