When The City
's second season premieres tonight on MTV, Whitney Port
will be preparing for the opportunity of a lifetime -- to show her collection at New York Fashion Week! So why is Whitney worried? "This is my first time doing this and I have so much to do," she tells People's Revolution boss Kelly Cutrone
. Her mentor's comforting words: "If this show doesn't go well, you're f------." Yikes! But Cutrone does offer Whitney some advice as she readies for her big debut. "You have to be prepared for to hate you," she says. "Average love being average because nobody bothers them."

airs Tuesdays (10:30 p.m.) on MTV, following The Hills
