No future for 'The City'?
New York City. It's the concrete jungle where dreams are made of -- or so Alicia Keys would have us think. But it looks like the reality of a certain MTV show set in the Big Apple isn't so dream-like.
Following months of speculation, the future of "The City" is nonexistent, according to the show's star.
Whitney Port called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Monday and offered this nugget of info: "As of right now, it doesn't really look like we're doing it anymore," said the 25-year-old fashion designer.
Guess even Olivia Palermo couldn't accessorize the show into safety.
The East Coast spin-off of MTV's golden child, "The Hills," premiered in 2008 and follows the glossy life of Port, the former sidekick of Ms. Lauren Conrad. Rumors of its demise have shadowed the show since its predecessor wrapped its six-season run earlier this year.
When probed about whether it's possible that the show could find life on another network, Port said, "No, at this point it's not."
On Monday, an MTV spokesperson said no decision had been made on the fate of the show.
[Updated Oct. 26, 11:11 a.m.: How quickly decisions are made! MTV released this statement Tuesday: "'The City' will not be returning to MTV for season three. Whitney has been a part of our family for many years and we wish her and the cast the best, and hope to collaborate with them again."]
