It feels like love is in the air for the former cast of The Hills. Specifically, Whitney Port is engaged to marry boyfriend Tim Rosenman, her rep confirms.

Whitney, Fiance

Nearly one month after the tall, leggy blonde's friend Lauren Conrad got engaged to William Tell, the former Hills and City star is headed for the altar, too.

Speaking of The City, for which Rosenman served as an associate producer, that's where Whitney met her man. The two, obviously, have stayed close.

A source close to her says, "She is super comfortable with him and in love."

Well, what's not to like about that? Whitney Port, 28, who currently has her own fashion line Whitney Eve, lives with her little sister in Venice, Calif.

Congratulations to the former reality star and her future husband!

The entire cast of The Hills, minus the vanquished Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, but including alumni Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, commemorated the hit MTV series' final episode Tuesday night with one last bash in Hollywood.

So much has changed between The Hills finale and what began as a Laguna Beach spinoff 102 episodes ago. But it was great to see LC back, since she started it all.

On hand were the likes of Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and Audrina Patridge, along with bit players Justin-Bobby, Lo, Stephanie, that Stacie girl and many more.

Lauren Conrad is finally returning to The Hills ... right after it ends.

One week from tonight, the girl who made the MTV reality show a hit will be on hand for the Live Reunion Show after the now-sagging series mercifully goes off the air.

Lauren Conrad Smiles in Blue

The reunion will immediately follow the series finale of The Hills and the season finale of The City. Whitney Port reported the LC news, as well as her own attendance:

"I am so happy to tell you all that I will be attending the reunion, as will Lauren!" Whitney wrote on her official site. "I am so excited to see everyone and catch up."

"I am so excited to see what's next for them," the former Hills star and current City leading lady continued. "It's been so long since we have all been together."

REUNITED: For one night and one night only, next Tuesday.

What remains unclear is whether Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, exiled from the show in recent weeks without notice, will appear between now and July 13.

The gruesome twosome was featured prominently in the first part of this season, but then Spencer went haywire, they supposedly broke up in real life, etc.

It's not clear why, but there has been no explanation of their vanishing from the series. Tonight, the penultimate episode of The Hills airs, followed by The City.

The former will likely focus on Kristin and Audrina's predictably boring romantic drama. Sigh. We can only hope Speidi returns to liven things up one last time.

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.

When Lauren Conrad hit the Paley Fest red carpet with cast mates Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Lo Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt (sadly, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were no-shows), a wide range of Hills gossip followed.

Spencer's sister told the crowd that the couple, whose weekend wedding is being filmed as the show's season finale, were in the "studio, making hit music."

Stephanie also dished on being a Speidi bridesmaid:

"I've never been to a wedding before. I know that [Holly Montag] is in it. I'm hoping that she is Maid of Honor because I will screw everything up."

Of the gruesome twosome's pre-wedding festivities, Stephanie Pratt said, "I don't think Spencer is allowed to have a bachelor party. Holly and I are throwing around the idea of a bridal shower before. I just hope no one objects [at the wedding]."

The conversation soon turned to - you guessed it! - the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors that infamously dominated a full season of the reality show.

When asked if she still believes that it was Spencer Pratt who spread the rumor that she and Jason Wahler made a sex tape, Lauren said, "We have it on tape that he [Spencer] takes responsibility for it. Sorry. Spoiler alert!"

Wow, now that's a Hills spoiler we never saw coming! Follow the jump for loads more spoilers and pictures of the cast at Paley fest ...

We've posted our thoughts on last night's season finale of The Hills.

Now it's time to examine the fashion and hairstyle choices of the lovely ladies (and Spencer Pratt) at last night's season finale party in New York!

As always, the show's leading lady, Miss Lauren Conrad, looked fabulous, debuting a new, shorter hairstyle with her gorgeous dress. Here she is:

Whether you love, hate or love to hate the show, there's no denying the fashion sense of these girls! Click to enlarge more photos of The Hills cast at the finale party ...

Last night's season finale of The Hills was about what you'd expect - equally parts funny, awkward, strange and annoying, partially staged and, well, totally awesome.

Our recap will consist of awarding and deducting points as we see fit. Season Four ended with Speidi possibly making its wedding legal, Heidi Montag possibly making up with Lauren Conrad, and Justin-Bobby definitely being the biggest loser on Earth.

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

Lo calls everybody "sweetie." Reminds us of our mom. Minus 4.

For all of her supposed animosity toward Heidi, Lauren Conrad seemed pretty genuine during their reconciliation. Plus 13, because as catty as girls can be, this showed us what we've always believed - that LC is a "sweetie" at heart.

During her emotional heart-to-heart with Lauren, Heidi pronounces irreparable "ir-re-PAIR-able." She is the anti-THEE-sis of smart. Minus 2.

Plus 17 for Brent Bolthouse's non-reactions to Heidi's story about marrying in Mexico - like, the "craziest thing she's EVER done!" In all 22 years on this planet, really? Staging your fake wedding after getting hammered? Moron. Minus 9.

Man, Darlene hates Spencer Pratt. We all do, of course, but she really does not like the man. And as convoluted and fake as the show is at times, you can tell just how fearful she is that her daughter will marry this jackass. Plus 11.

Good grief, is Justin-Bobby wearing effing overalls? Minus 3.

Justin offers his brunette babe some ring, but it has no definition. Shrewd maneuver by J-Bobby. This appears to say so much, yet means jack. Plus 6.

But Minus 3 because Audrina continues to date a guy who does not shower.

This has to be explained: After dodging questions about their sham wedding all week, Spencer brought Heidi to a courthouse to make it official, then abruptly changed his mind. She had already said "I do," but when it was Pratt's turn he hesitated. The reason? A sudden epiphany, the need to create a fantasy ceremony for Heidi that would include patching things up with her family, who were disappointed to have been shut out of the couple's union. So basically, this entire thing - the trip to the courthouse (after hours), the MTV promo of only Heidi's vows, their interviews on the subject, the episode's frickin' title - was a setup. Worst. Wedding. Ever. Minus 30.

Much as we are going to miss Whitney Port on The Hills, giving her The City was a good move by MTV. She never meshed with The Hills crowd, preferring to live her own life, and The Hills has evolved into a couple of separate shows as it is. So Plus 25 for The City debuting next week - and The Hills returning for Season Five!

TOTAL: +4. A huge deduction for the wedding nonsense, but a great episode - and season - overall! Leave a comment with your scores!

Last night's episode of The Hills was delightful, funny, poignant and nauseating at the same time. Our recap will consist of awarding and deducting points as we see fit.

When Whitney Port receives the call at work from Diane Von Furstenberg, she announces she's moving to The City. Meanwhile, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag embark on a romantic trip to Mexico that ends with them getting drunk and married.

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

Like, nobody knows where Spencer and Heidi are, Stephanie Pratt says. Except the MTV camera crew that's filming you morons. Just ask them! Minus 6

Whitney getting the call about the job at work was so fake. But we loved Whitney's expressions (and LC's "OMG" face) so much, who cares? Plus 4.

Good Lord, Heidi's fake Mexican accent at the restaurant made us want to claw our eyes out. No amount of Patron should make you that lame. Minus 5.

Trying to railroad Heidi into getting married, Spencer says Heidi "makes him want to be nicer." Not a true romantic, but the best he could do. Plus 6.

Audrina fills the girls in on Heidi's absence. She's useless, but Minus only 3 for the obligatory (mercifully quick) Justin-Bobby cameo. We hate him so hard.

Heidi Montag rocks her typical outfit of clubbing makeup, a red bikini and high heels. LOL. What a skank. Minus 7 for lowering her standards each week, but Plus 14 for the Playboy spread she's subtly auditioning for and will get.

Talking About Feelings

Tell us that Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port talking about feelings during their lunch date at the end didn't elicit a tear or two from you. Pass the tissues! Plus 17!

No footage of the actual ceremony, except on Spencer's camcorder? MTV follows them all the way to Cabo and falls asleep at the wheel then? Fishy. Minus 11.

Oh, how totally sweet are Whitney's parents? Watching them interacting with her, they seem like just the sort of people who would raise Whitney. Plus 9.

Obligatory Plus 1 for the After Show, because we were too harsh on Jessi and Dan last week. They are actually okay. Lo was kinda boring last night though.

Heidi tells Spencer she'll "show him what a wife does." We think we know what she means. And we're talking about Spencer Pratt. *shiver* Minus 23.

Heidi says her mom is going to freak, which we already know is totally accurate. And we thought Darlene was crazy to suggest Spencer drugged her before the wedding. Alcohol could be considered a drug, technically ... Plus 10.

TOTAL: +6. Major swings, but great overall! Leave a comment with your scores!

Having risen to quasi-fame on MTV's The Hills, Whitney Port is trading up to her own, NYC-based reality show, The City. She looks gorgeous on the cover of Page Six Magazine, which (perhaps prematurely) anoints her the new Carrie Bradshaw.

Sex and the City comparisons aside, it's great to be Whitney Port these days. Here's what one of The Hollywood Gossip's favorite celebs had to say about ...

... how she happened to be cast on The Hills: “I had an interview [for an internship at Teen Vogue] and then got a phone call from MTV a couple of days later. They were like, ‘We’re shooting this documentary-style TV show about girls growing up in L.A. and the fashion industry, blah blah blah’ and I was like, ‘OK that’s interesting, whatever.’ And the next thing I knew they wanted to cast me on the show. But I was really just trying to get the job at Teen Vogue!

... keeping in touch with her friends from SoCal: "Lauren Conrad and I talk. If anybody knows what I’m going through right now it’s her.”

... guys in New York City vs. guys in L.A.: “I was recently in L.A., and I couldn’t help but think, ‘Oh my gosh, everyone is kind of the exact same here.’ You have all these guys in the entertainment industry who are just trying to be smooth and super-cool. The guys [in New York] are [still] trying to be cool - guys do that everywhere - but they’re more confident and they know what they want.”

... handling celeb gossip media and critics: “I’ve never really noticed anyone giving me a hard time. Maybe they are and I’m just naïve. But I figure that if I just stay true to myself and I am the Whitney that I’ve always been, people will look at me not as Whitney from the show, but as a human being.”
