The engagement comes as a bit of a surprise, as Port's managed to keep her romantic life out of the spotlight since her 2011 split with fellow MTV star, Ben Nemtin of "The Buried Life," but we couldn't be happier for the girl who once tripped down the stairs in a full-length gown during a live "Good Morning America" segment.
Whit's certainly kissed her fair share of frogs over the years, and from Mr. ) to her double date with Freddie Fackelmayer and his DAD, she definitely deserves the nice dude she's decided to settle down with.
Then when I chose to do The City, I took the next step to show my personal life. She said, "Be yourself, keep your eye out for people who are just trying to do this for fame, and use this opportunity to your fullest advantage to help you do what you're passionate about doing."17: Is that why you started designing?But I like to think that people will keep taking me seriously because I've shown that my head is still screwed on straight, I am motivated, and I do have a serious job.17: Did Lauren give you any advice? WP: I'm not designing clothes because I am on a reality show.When I have an opinion, I say it.17: Has Kelly Cutrone given you any advice? The main thing is that when you're putting yourself on the line, don't be afraid of failure.And also that I need to stay true to myself and not be knocked down by those who don't necessarily see my point of view.17: What do you think about Kristin Cavallari saying that she's going to create drama on The Hills? And I'm not going to do anything just for shock value.It was Whitney who told her to take the summer internship in Paris instead of hanging out with her loser boyfriend, Jason; who said she was better off without Heidi in her life; who convinced Lauren that if you don't feel "the spark" with a guy you are dating, you should just move on.
Now on her own show, The City, Whitney needs a little of her own advice." I thought to myself, When you go on a date, you expect the guy to pay for you.And then at the same time, Why should a guy have to pay for you? But you'd think that when you're on camera, you'd try your hardest to be respectful and gentlemanlike! But kissing is harmless to me, and sometimes a kiss can tell if it's even worth seeing that person again! Olivia is willing to step on people's toes in order to get what she wants— which I think is a quality you have to have in the fashion industry. Not malicious ways, but by working extremely hard and taking initiative.17: Did that experience change you?Alex accuses Jay of cheating: While out at a club, Alex lunged to Whitney's defense after rumors of Jay's wandering eye found their way to the group.The two guys exchanged some choice words, and Whitney had no choice but to watch it unfold.The fashion designer will marry Tim Rosenman, who worked as an associate producer on "The City." Congrats, Whit!
