In case anyone else sort of came around on The City after Olivia shut down Whitney over talking about her friends' hook up situation in the DVF offices ("Whitney, you're an adult. You're what, 23 years old? You're not in high school"), take note: MTV's picked up the show for a second season, which could mean more fun quotes from Olivia, but definitely more cameras at Fashion Week. Not exactly win-win, but maybe Diane will show up on camera again?

Rumor: MTV Has Canceled The City
Rumor has it that MTV has canceled (seemingly) successful scripted reality series The City. The current season, which airs on Tuesdays at 10.30pm EST, will be its last. The City, a spin-off of the The Hills, which was a spin-off of Laguna Beach, documents the "life" of Whitney Port, a young designer trying to make it in New York. It mostly takes place at real-life fashion industry companies, including Kelly Cutrone's public relations firm People's Revolution and Elle magazine, where main characters Erin Kaplan and Olivia Palermo "work." (Kaplan does indeed work full time at Elle, Palermo does not.) In general, we're a bit surprised by this news.
Ten Questions for The City
1. When Erin and Olivia are meeting with Joe Zee, why can't Olivia get up and walk two steps to grab a notebook from Joe? We're glad she refused to move so we could witness a deliciously frosty transaction between Olivia and Erin in which Olivia points at Erin and asks her to fetch the notebook for her in a tone we can only imagine she reserves for wait staff and her cleaning lady. 2. Foreshadowing much? How many times did Kelly Cutrone say "very" as in it would be a "very bad thing" if Roxy doesn't get Whitney's line on some random Canadian pop star? 15. We counted. 3. Jian, who produces Canadian pop sensation Lights, is, according to Kelly Cutrone, the "Ryan Seacrest of Canada." What does that even mean? 4. Why does Prabal Gurung have such a soothing voice? We could listen to him say things like "burnt plastic pallettes" and "laser cut organza" all day in his elegant Nepalese accent.
