It’s Official: Whitney Port Gets a Spin-Off!

Congratulations to Whitney Port, the only marginally sane cast member of The Hills, whose spinoff has just been picked up by MTV.

“They will start shooting immediately,” says a show source, who confirms the pickup just happened within the last two weeks—though the network has yet to respond to a call for comment.

The series, set to begin airing in early 2009, will feature Port’s life in New York City, where she is now working for Diane von Furstenberg.

Now this is a show I might actually watch. It might even give us a — gasp! — real sense of what it’s like to work in the New York fashion industry. Hopefully heading up her own series doesn’t turn Whitney into another dramalicious Hollywood starlet. I like that she seems down-to-earth and normal.

Will you guys be tuning in to this show?

  • I don’t watch anything on MTV. Too many commercials, then they rehash the entire show after every commercial break. There’s only like 10 minutes of actual show. It’s maddening.

    Oh, and Whitney? Sacajawea called. She wants her dress back.

  • Seriously, how can anyone watch this stuff. Mindless, bratty, wanna-be celebutants whose 15 minutes should have expired long ago. No thanks.

    Note to photographers: let the girl go, she obviously has to use the toilet. Real. Bad.

  • Who the hell is this bitch? And why is she wearing an Indian parachute?

    Does she run off a cliff in her new show and yell “Geroniho”?

  • I don’t give a crap about The Hills but those are some cute shoes. But the dress is hideous. I don’t know if it’s the colour, the pattern or the neckline- or all three- but… it just doesn’t work.

  • YES! I like Whitney! She is the only mature one on the show. Heidi and
    spencer have the most retarded set up cheesy photos where they think they are so spontaneous. Hate those idiots.

  • NO WAY…I can’t STAND how that girl talks. She puts a “k” at the end of every word that ends in “g”. Like she says “I was thinking’k’.” UGGGG I hate it. I hate listening to her. It’s not like she says anything profound anyways.

  • the only way i would ever watch the show (or any reality show other than project runway, and the occasional flavor of love) is if i got back on the heroin. and the crack. so let’s pray and hope that i never see that show.

  • She is naturally gorgeous but her fashion sense is horrible. I have yet to see her dressed in something that doesn’t make me gag. I don’t get how all her FASHION bosses and coworkers don’t give her the heads up on how hideous she’s making herself look. She covers up how beautiful she is by wearing these clown suits!
