The new season of The City premieres on Tuesday night and change is on the horizon: Roxy Olin, Whitney Port’s high school friend, is moving in.
Roxy chatted about how well she knows Whitney:
I met Whitney when we were in high school. I’ve grown up with Whitney and I danced with her for four years in high school, and our boyfriends were best friends, so we were always friends. We went our separate ways, but we reconnected instantly. We hang out everyday.
She says that the editing may be a bit slanted:
They’re only showing one part of who I am. They make me out to be a little b–, but I’m not really at all. And Whitney is one of my best friends in the world. We live together and we’re really close, and I think having that relationship with her and having her show me the way was okay.
I found this to be really interesting – she is currently working on Brothers & Sisters – Roxy’s dad is a producer on the show, her mom (Patricia Wettig) is an actress on the show and her brother writes for the show! How funny! Although it sounds like it was a bit frustrating being the daughter of the producer:
When I first got there, the boys, I thought were all so cute – Dave Annabelle, Matthew Rhys, Balthazar Getty. I was so excited and I come on for lunch and they all put their heads down and go, “Boss’s daughter. Boss’s daughter.” I was like, “Damn it!” Every time I put on some outfit, they go, “Boss’s daughter,” and close their eyes
Although she can’t complain too much – she had some terrific scenes with Sex & the City’s Jason Lewis:
I got to make out with Jason Lewis. I was so nervous. It was my first time to have to kiss on-screen and of course, it’s with the hottest guy from Sex and the City ever. I had a full-blown panic attack. My brother’s on set and I was like, “Oh my God.” But I survived and I’m like, yea, I made out with Jason Lewis.
Do you think The City is scripted as much as The Hills? Or do you think there might be a degree of reality to it?
