Erin Lucas Leaves The City

After one season of The City, Erin Lucas is calling it quits.
The NYU grad, who appeared as the pal to MTV star Whitney Port, shot some scenes for the series' second season but will no longer be on the show, her rep tells exclusively.

"It never hurts to try something new, but when you're born to do something, chances are you're going to wind up doing it no matter where you detour," her rep tells Us. "The latest proof comes from Erin Lucas, who loved her hosting career and never meant to stray ... until The City beckoned. Nice while it -- and her friendship with Whitney Port -- lasted."

Her rep adds: "But it was hosting she loved, and it is to hosting she returns, blowing kisses to all as she departs the series for her hosting home turf."

According to her rep, Lucas -- whose previous hosting credits include mtvU -- has already received new job offers and is working on other projects.

Why the sudden departure?

Sources tell Us that Lucas, whose complicated dating life was a consistent subplot on the show, had a falling out with Port.

Whitney Port models for Health Magazine

Summer calls for working some vibrant color into your wardrobe. As The City's Whitney Port proves, these looks are meant to garner attention. A lot of it.

It's two o'clock on a sunny Tuesday after noon, and Whitney Port is racing through New York City traffic. She's been filming for the second season of MTV's highly addictive reality series The City all morning and will be on camera again later tonight, so she's headed home to slip into one of her trademark drop-dead-sexy outfits. "Putting together a lot of looks can get really exhausting," the 24-year-old L. A. transplant says.

Fortunately, she doesn't get overwhelmed easily. This is a girl whose love life and career aspirations (she's currently working in public relations for Diane von Furstenberg) are being documented in front of millions of people. There may be some debate as to what's real and what's staged, but one thing's for sure: Those sick styles you see Whitney wearing in each episode are not the work of a wardrobe stylist. "I've always loved fashion," she says.

That passion has led to her own line of clothes, Whitney Eve, available at and select department stores. "It's a mix of West Coast and East Coast styles, with a little vintage flair. I also use lots of color," says Whitney, who gravitates toward bold palettes. "People get into a rut wearing the same thing day after day. It's important to try something new—even if it's just adding a pop with a vivid top."

On these pages, Whitney shows you how to wake up your own wardrobe with seven eye-catching looks. Black has never seemed so basic.

Lauren Conrad and Kyle Howard by the pool on the rooftop of The Thompson Hotel in L.A. I know Lauren is making a face and all but I still think these photos are really cute. I can just picture Lauren venting about something in the same way we vent to our own bf's (or gf's) after a tough day.
