On The City this week, Roxy Olin and Whitney Port went on a work trip to Miami, while Olivia and Erin traveled there as well for Elle. What an amazing coincidence!
Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff members break down events on the new episode of The Hills spinoff, awarding and deducting points as we deem appropriate …
Plus 9 out of the gate for Kelly Cutrone b!tch slapping (figuratively) Roxy Olin in a meeting. “Why are you talking?!” HA. Kelly’s the most real person on the show.
First obvious music tie-in of the night: “Fashion” by Lady Gaga. Poor. Minus 2.
Whitney seems (at least mostly) focused on work, while Roxy just wants to par-tay. Only Plus 2, though, because there’s no way Roxy should even have a job.
Whit’s pal Nick meets her out, only to leave with Roxy while Whitney’s in the bathroom. Minus 3, because that’s typical Roxy, and for the sad look on WP’s face.
Erin, as usual, is looking to catch Olivia f*%king up. Plus 2, because so are we.
We thought it was a joke, but MTV just advertised a new show called Jersey Shore. The voiceover: “MTV is taking you inside a shore house like you’ve never seen, full of the hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos.” Yes, Guidos. Ones who “keep their hair high, their muscles juiced, and their fists pumping.” LOL. Plus 12.
Back to the program. Whitney and Roxy argue about last night unprofessionally at Mara Hoffman’s show. Minus 7 (slightly redeemed by Kelly’s profane tirade at them).
Whitney Port holds her own with the fashion designers at least. We think. Plus 5.
No Freddie Fackelmayer this week, it appears. Mixed feelings on that topic. Even.
Brooklyn Decker hosted an after-party they went to? They should have made the entire episode out of that. Minus 3 because of the generic filler chosen to air instead.
Back in NYC, Kelly berates Roxy and Whitney: 1. For their lack of professionalism; 2. For Roxy’s comment that she isn’t nice enough; 3. For their high room service bill: “You owe me $100. Next time go to Taco Bell.” BURN! Plus 8.
Olivia on working as a team with Erin: “I… I… I’d really much like that.” Minus 7 for being a terrible liar. Who can’t even pretend to take the high road for once?
TOTAL: +16. SEASON TOTAL: +9. The best episode so far pulls The City into positive territory for the first time this season. Seriously, someone had to call Roxy out, and at least the Erin-Olivia feud seems to be building toward an epic meltdown.
