This will probably not come as a shock to anyone who has followed the various scandals surrounding MTV "reality" hit The Hills — but some are already saying that Hills spin-off The City may also be fudging the facts for the sake of drama.
The new show follows the travails of former Hills star Whitney Port as she makes her way east from L.A. to NYC to fulfill her dream of working for designer Diane von Furstenberg. However, according to an item in Monday’s NY Post, the reality starlet isn’t exactly pulling her own weight around the DvF offices.
"She doesn’t really work," the Post quotes a source as saying. "She is hardly ever in the office."
Not only that, the report claims that the production of The City is cramping the style of some at Whitney’s new place of work. One particular problem: "[They] 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."
But Whitney herself claims that what happens on camera is pretty real, despite the criticism that the "reality" show is scripted.
"Obviously things have to be produced in terms of locations and cinematography, and there’s a whole crew, so there has to be some level of production," she tells AOL’s Inside TV. "But there are no scripts, and every conversation is real and everything that comes out of our mouths is what we’re truly thinking and feeling. People can say what they want. Things have to be planned, but it’s pretty real."
