The City: L-O-V-E

Does every episode of The City start with a new guy? Ah, Erin's boyfriend. His name would be Duncan.

Another pre-work roomie breakfast? Don't these girls have to be at the office? During this weeks gabfest, Whitney feels bad for sleeping on Erin's couch. "It's a little crowded but of course you are welcome" - Erin. A little crowded? Her foyer is bigger than my bedroom.

"It's so difficult" - Whitney on apartment hunting in New York. Girl, you have no idea. But MTV is probably paying your 15% broker fee so I don't feel bad for you.

Olivia is completley bored at DVF. Whitney, why are you answering your cell at work, right after your boss asked you to do something? You'll rush to meet Jay? Do you not have hours that you need to be in the office? Oh, right, right. You don't really work there.

While apartment hunting with Jay, Whitney says that she pictured herself in "one of those shorter brick buildings." That would be a walk-up, Whitney.


Back at DVF, Olivia goes on a long tangent about not being dependant on a man. I love the random coworker eavesdropping on her. I bet she's thinking "Olivia, being dependant on your father is worse, shut up!" Cause that's what I was thinking.

Erin and Duncan gross me out a little bit but Ducncan kind of sort of cracks me up. "By weird, do you mean awesome?" - Duncan.

Whitney took the apartment Jay found her and put in a very ugly couch. Erin informs Whitney and Jay that she and Duncan said "I love you." Jay freaks out. Whitney freaks out and worries about their relationship because Jay freaked out.

Erin and Whitney go for a walk in Central Park. I wonder why I never saw them when I went for runs around the reservior. Oh, cause I've only done that twice since September.


I don't like Olivia's cousin Nevan because he looks creepy and talks creepy. But most of all because of this: "I was waiting for the subway on 28th street and I spit on the platform." I hate when guys do that. It's so gross and they do it all the time. It makes me want to push them onto the tracks. Ha, he got $100 ticket. That's the best thing I've heard all day.

Olivia's mad that Whitney didn't take her apartment hunting advice. Olivia clearly wants to be Blair Waldorf and she wants Whitney to be the first member of her new entourage.

At Stanton Social Jay is still hung up on the "L" word. He and Whitney have the awkward "what are we?" conversation and he is so Justin Bobby. He doesn't want a label but he does want to get to know Whitney better. "So we're toally on the right page" - Jay. Whitney is so not on that page.

hahaha ya know what i really really like whitney on the hills but you're right... this is so fake! there is no way that those jobs at DVF is real!

Ms. Pink Zebra said...

Haha. This is how I feel about this show. How does she leave work? And not really do anything? And Olivia is the FAKEST person I have ever seen. She bugs me. I just want to smack her with a really cheap heavy something and show her reality. LOL.

But I can't not watch it. LOL. Hmm....

Sarah said...

You summed that show up just perfect. I am so addicted to this crazy stuff.

Kerry Anne said...

I think Olivia's creepy cousin got a $300 ticket instead of $100. NUTSO. but he was eating goldfish so i kind of like him.

Amy said...

Jay IS Justin Bobby!! There's no way Whitney has that job based on her "interview" that was shown on The Hills--either the job or the interview had to have been fake because she was stammering and sounded like a retard. I think in New York there are probably enough competent and literate people interviewing for these positions that Whitney's "ummm i really like stylinG" (pronouncing the G and all) would not cut the mustard.

I love Erin, but her boyfriend's a bit douchey and Olivia!! WTF!!

Also what is with the long hair parted in the center with the little side wispies hauled back??!! It's like little house on the prairie slash hippie hair :D

Pretty Me!! said...

Never seen this but could imagine !! you really narrated it well :D !!

Erin said...

Adding your blog to my list that I read when I need a quick mental break at work. :) Congrats on the 20sb nomination! And I can't believe I failed to set up the DVR for The City. Doing that tonight!

Skywalker said...

With a wrap up as good as this...why watch?

Thanks for the info. I may tune if nothing else is on.

Island Girl said...

I can't help watching The City,although, my fav. is The Hills. The City seems a bit more scripted that The Hills. What do you think?

Erin said...

I wasn't going to waste my time with The City...but your recaps pretty much make it sound irresistable, so thanks for yet another time-waster! Can't wait to see it!

Hope said...

OMG you totally recaped it perfectly!

Such a great show. I'm totally hooked and happy that I'm not the only one.

Carina said...

Hey! Great review! I havn't watched - I am loyal to the hills! Is as fun as the hills?

Katelin said...

i couldn't have summed up the show better myself. jay is so the new justin bobby, it's ridiculous. i had better faith in whitney, she was my fave. she better step it up soon and stop being so heidish, ugh.

L to the Aura said...

I love the commentary.
The Hills/The City/chocolate are 3 of my biggest guilty pleasures.
Your blog is fun.

<3 J. said...

Well HELLLOOOOO!? of course Jay's all paranoid about this whole "love" business.

THEY'VE BEEN DATING A MONTH!!!!

Sorry Whit. If you wanna date the bad boy you're gonna have to deal with his bullshit.

Cookie said...

I don't like Olivia's cousin Nevan because he looks creepy and talks creepy.

I almost woke up my roommate laughing!

Anonymous said...

Did it seem like they were just talking about the longest movies they could, so that they could get 4 hours of alone time...?

Giovanna Diaries said...

Ok, I'll admit: I like watching The City. But reading your write-ups on it are 100x better.

Meredith said...

It also bothers me that they call Olivia part of the "uptown crowd"...umm she lives in Tribeca.

Fidget Midget said...

I'm pretty sure the only reason Olivia wants Whitney to be her friend is because she spent the past few years on a TV show that was insanely popular. Whitney seems to be so clueless when it comes to ulterior motives!

I think The City is interesting, but like everyone else has been saying, it's just a bit TOO contrived.

Ms. Liryc said...

Since I love Whitney and I can't seem to get enough of the Hills and this new spin off I have watched it.. I can't stand Olivia.. she's a social.. social my arse!!! She seems all stuck up and snobby as with a lot of these rich NYers that I come into contact with EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Her cousin looks like a tool. Just creepy.

Jay's cute, but I think Whitney is limiting herself by staying with him..

Jenna said...

Haha, you are hilarious. Some of these same thoughts were running through my head when I saw this episode. Come on OLIVIA...

Wonder how much of 'the city' is scripted. I know they must piece it all together from a few clips and kind of make up a storyline, but then what do these girls do with their real lives the rest of the time??
