MTV, Olivia Palermo's PR and Whitney Port Deny Rumors of The City's Demise




    In response to the recent rash of rumors that MTV had canceled its NYC-based spin-off of The Hills, a barrage of sources have come forth to claim it just isn't so, from star Whitney Port (via Twitter and her personal blog) to Olivia Palermo's publicist to the MTV network itself.

    Whitney tweeted (@whitneyEVEport) this afternoon: "the rumors are NOT true" in retaliation to Fashionista's initial report stating that a well-placed source claimed the show would be canceled after this season.  Racked National also pointed out that they'd seen two producers from the show scouting for new blood in, where else, Montauk over the weekend (not exactly mourning behavior). MTV and Olivia Palermo's publicist also confirmed to us: any rumors of cancellation are entirely inaccurate. For fans of The City, it seems, the show will go on.
