After taking a week off last week because of Election Day, today we check in with the drama on last night’s episode of The Hills. For the most part, the drama was pretty contained but there were a bunch of fun moments. I found the ep especially interesting because since it was Whitney Port centered (Lauren LC Conrad really only played a supporting role) we have a feel for what her spin-off show The City may be like:
Whitney and LC got called back to NYC by their heinous boss Kelly Cutrone at People’s Revolution to do some runway show work for her … romance and drama ensued. Back home in LA, Heidi Montag was left to pick up the pieces after she got fired from SBE last week. It was a fun time on The Hills last night. After the jump, let’s discuss the drama from last night’s ep titled Back To New York …
So basically last night’s ep was really all about Whitney. She got called back to NY to do some work (LC tagged along) and ended up running into an old flame who she was no longer interested in (I suspect his orangeness had a lot to do with her decision). So, in her best impersonation as a guy, Whitney proceeded to flirt with and chat up a new guy (where do all these Australians keep coming from?) right in front of her old flame … leaving him emasculated on national TV lookin’ 2 seconds away from crying. If this is what The City is gonna be like … sign my ass up! On the Speidi front, Heidi was left jobless and dejected after she got drunk on the job in last week’s ep and had to be fired from SBE. Her boyfriend Spencer Pratt thought it was a great occasion to celebrate. They ended up running into Heidi’s old boss Brent Bolthouse and Spencer, in his oh-so-charming way decided to go have words with him. Brent basically schooled homeboy Spencer to his face and banished him from all future SBE/Bolthouse events — which is almost every event in LA. Heidi crawled back to Brent, apologized her ass off and begged for her job back … Brent said he’d think about it. Not exactly the best drama for your buck but I was pretty entertained. I suspect that Heidi will get her job back on the condition that Brent never has to see Spencer again — we’ll have to see if she bites.
In the end, last night’s ep really felt like a lead-in to The City which will hit the air early next year. Thus far, I like having Whitney as the center of attention. I can’t wait to see her eyeballs pop out of her skull on a more weekly basis. What did y’all think … was last night’s ep enough to get you interested in watching The City? Do we feel bad for Heidi?
