Is there anyone out there that actually believes that the ladies of The Hills and now, The City do any real work at those fancy jobs they have? From Page Six: "Though reality starlet Whitney Port will be seen toiling for [Diane von Furstenberg] on her new MTV spin-off series, 'The City,' which premieres tonight, one source tells us, 'She doesn't really work. She is hardly ever in the office.' Those who do work for von Furstenberg, however, are in the office daily and 'can't get their work done because MTV tells them they can't move any thing at their work stations. They do so many reshoots that everything has to look exactly the same every day.'" [NYP]
