It’s official. Well, 99% official. Whitney Port told Ryan Seacrest that The City was dunzo.
Vulture writes: “As of right now it doesn’t really look like we’re doing it anymore,” said the 25-year-old fashion designer. When asked if it could possibly move from MTV to another network, Port said, “No, at this point it’s not.”
This is terrible news for those of us loved the New York City-based series. I’ve gone on record before and said that The City is one of the best reality shows of all time, and I staunchly defend that statement. Ultimately, however, MTV simply wasn’t the proper home for it, and thus in this era of Teen Mom and Jersey Shore, it was inevitable that the adventures of Whitney and Roxy and Erin and Olivia (not to mention Joe Zee and Kelly Cutrone) would be cut short.
We’ve yet to hear an official official cancellation notice from MTV, but the outlook does not look good.
