Stop trying to act all cool and not excited when we all know that The City premieres on MTV tonight! If you do choose to tune in, you'll find Whitney Port (pictured at the 2006 VMAs) leaving sunny California for New York City in order to work for Diane von Furstenberg, but the NY Post has it that "She doesn't really work. She is hardly ever in the office." Shocking! The show is a spin-off of The Hills, which is a spin-off of Laguna Beach, which was a spin-off of real life. Just like its predecessors, the series is taking heat for being a scripted reality show, but it's also being called out for being a little bit too L.A. and not enough NYC. However, Whitney insists she is "living in either midtown or the Gramercy area--I don't really know, to be perfectly honest. I'm in a tall building, way up high."NYMag has a lot more in a sprawling 4-page article on the series.
