The Hills’ Whitney Port has lived a quieter public life than her BFF Lauren Conrad, but it doesn’t mean she hasn’t been along for the crazy ride.

We constantly see scenes where Whit is working hard to be the best she can be, but also listening to what’s going on in her friends’ lives.

A 23-year-old Los Angeles native, Whitney Port considers herself a normal girl and never expected to have her life on a high rated TV show.

With her father, Jeff Port, Whit has developed her own fashion line coming out this August, and she’ll be featured on The Hills all Spring.

Chris Yandek of was lucky enough to interview the lovely Whitney Port last week. They had a quality discussion. We’ll start off the interview here before kicking you over to that site for the bulk of it via link.

Q: How has The Hills changed your day-to-day life?

Whitney Port: “Just in terms of careers. I never thought I would be doing something with television. It changes just in the fact that you walk outside and watch your step and not trust too willingly. Other than that I have stayed true to myself, kept my old friends, and the whole good deal.”

Q: You definitely have kept your personal and private life off camera. What was the main reason?

Whitney Port: “The main reason is just those things like dating, family, and friends are just so valuable to me and I didn’t want to put any strain on any of those relationships and you can see how the cameras around people can make people a little bit loopy. I didn’t want to bring that into my life.”

Q: Maybe the fact is you just wanted to show who you were professionally and be a good role model for young girls watching you on television?

Whitney Port: “Definitely, definitely, very good way of putting it.”

Q: Season four is going to start with your and Lauren’s trip to Paris. What should the fans expect?

Whitney Port: “The fans should just expect us working our little butts off in Paris. There is a special event that we are able to work at and we had to have a couple nights of fun, but other than that we just work really…really hard. You get to see the glamorous lifestyle of all these Parisian debutantes. It’s pretty fun.”

Q: What are we going to see from you this season?

Whitney Port: “New job opportunities. Other than that we’ve filmed, but I haven’t seen the season. I am not sure what they are going to show.”
