I'm hoping the entire interview makes it to the web. I'll keep checking back and will post it as soon as it's available.

Heidi Montag Thinks Guest-Hosting 'The View' Will Be 'Exciting'

If Tuesday's "Hills" premiere isn't going to satisfy your Heidi Montag needs, then you might need to check out her guest-hosting gig on "The View" next week too. Spencer Pratt's better half will fill in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is on maternity leave, during the October 1 show.
"I've enjoyed each time Spencer and I have been on 'The View' as guests. It will be exciting seeing it from the other side," she told MTV News in a statement. "I've always admired Elisabeth, and hopefully I'll be able to provide plenty of my own views while filling in for her."

Whitney Port Convinces MTV to Let Her Show Her Reality on Season Two of The City

On Tuesday, The City returns for a second season on MTV. After season one's breakups, emotional upheavals, catfights, and general difficulties of living life in a penthouse apartment in downtown Manhattan in your early twenties, "everything is different" in season two, according to a press release. Whitney Port returns to work for Kelly Cutrone at People's Revolution. Erin is no longer part of the cast. She's been replaced by Roxy, who moves to New York from L.A. and has to crash with Whitney (who has a new apartment in the West Village, because her old one was so gross, obviously). Olivia also no longer works at Diane Von Furstenberg, and instead lands a gig in the accessories department at Elle.

So will Olivia and Whitney hang out? Is Whitney's clothing line actually going anywhere? Does Whitney have a boyfriend?! The star and burgeoning fashion designer took a few minutes out of her (theoretical) day off to chat on the phone with us while walking around town, and answer a few of our life's most burning questions.

It must be nice to be out of the office on a lovely day like this. Speaking of, how is working with Kelly again?
It was a really good choice, you know? I’m really happy that I made it because while it was a really great experience to be at Diane Von Furstenberg and learn behind the scenes of designing, now I'm really learning more about the whole design process.

Do you think you're learning more with Kelly in that regard?
I don’t know that I’m learning more or less. It’s different to work for a designer and it’s different to be a designer — I have a lot more creative control, so it’s different.

What's been the greatest lesson she's taught you?
I’ve learned that you just can’t be afraid to fail and that you can’t always listen to someone else’s criticism. Design is so opinion-based — I’m not sitting at a computer and crunching numbers. She just said, "You have to be ready and some people are going to hate it and knock and don’t let it get you down."

Kelly said that when hiring interns she looks for “somebody who doesn’t think they know anything about fashion, because they don’t.” Do you share that philosophy?
I’m not really sure exactly what she means, but I think what she’s trying to get off is that she wants to teach. She’s not as harsh as that — she’s more of a mentor. I think she knows that she has a lot of knowledge, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say you should hire someone who doesn’t know anything about fashion.

Does she critique you on the show?
She has her moments when she’s harsh and she can criticize, and then there’s moments when she’s really motherly.

Have any stores placed orders since your Fashion Week show?
Not yet. I mean, we made some great contacts with boutiques around the country. As far as big department stores? I think my sales group is having some meetings today, so I’m not sure.

MTV used to be adamant about not letting Lauren Conrad's fame outside of The Hills be on The Hills. But now they're letting you work on your line and have a fashion show on The City. What changed?
They saw how passionate I was about designing my clothing line and I really told them, "This is what I want to do — I don’t want to work in public relations and what I want to do is design. So please allow me to do this and please show my reality."

Do you and Olivia hang out in season two?
She has her own story arc — she’s working with this girl Erin in publicity at Elle. Olivia doesn’t need me to be part of the show. There’s points in the season where we work together or I see her at certain events or whatnot, but we have our own things going on.

So you don't socialize just for fun?

Are you dating anybody?
Currently, no. But you definitely see a fair share of dating on the shows.

Kristin Cavallari Dating LA Based Businessman Sonny Smith ??

Here we go again — another couple is just pretending for The Hills. On the reality show, Kristin Cavallari, 22, is dating Audrina Patridge’s ex, Justin “Bobby” Brescia, but according to an insider, the romance isn’t real.
Shocking, isn’t it?
The insider says that Kristin — whose rep denies the story — has actually been secretly seeing LA-based businessman Sonny Smith for the past few months, but she has kept that relationship under wraps.
“Kristin and Sonny are an item, but he knows that she has to pretend to date Justin Bobby if she wants to stay on The Hills,” her pal says. “It’s a complicated situation.”
When asked if they’re dating, Sonny told In Touch, “We have been friends for a while, and yes, we hang out.”

Does Audrina Patridge Have a New Boyfriend?

It appears Audrina has a new guy in her life. The Hills actress was spotted getting rather affectionate with a mystery man while having lunch at the Breadbar in Beverly Hills today, 9/23.

At first I discounted this report because I'm a big fan of Corey's but when I looked at Corey's twitter account the photo he had been using of himself and Audrina as a profile pic is gone, replaced by a solo photo. Trouble in paradise or is this new guy simply a friend or perhaps even a bodyguard? I guess we'll just have to wait and see...
