She may have left Hollywood for N.Y.C., but Whitney Port
says she hasn't left everything behind in Southern California … especially contact with her good friends.
"Lauren Conrad and I talk," Port, who will star
in her own MTV reality show, The City
, tells Page Six
Magazine. "If anybody knows what I'm going through right now it's her."
Though she was "never too close" with her Hills
castmates Audrina Patridge
and Heidi Montag
, the 23-year-old reality star says she still talks "to them every now and again … obviously, we've been part of such a big thing together, so we're close in that way."
Having already filmed portions of her new series, which documents her move to the Big Apple as she works for fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, Port sees similarities between the two cites ("I was recently in L.A., and I couldn't help but think, 'Oh my gosh, everyone is kind of the exact same here") but also some slight differences.
"You have all these guys in the entertainment industry who are just trying to be smooth and super-cool," she says. "The guys in New York are still trying to be cool … guys do that everywhere … but they're more confident and they know what they want." --Eunice Oh
