This morning, Fashionista reported that The City had been canceled. While a source told us otherwise, Whitney Port, ever the savvy social networker, took to her website after an alarming number of inquiries from fans as to the show's demise. She wrote:
To my friends and fans,
I want to clear the air and let you all know that the rumors that have been circulating about The City being cancelled are NOT true! When I checked my Twitter and Facebook pages this morning, I was overwhelmed with your kind words and support. I am 100% committed to the show and thank you all for being the best fans! Now, let's show our love for The City and rock this week!!! Tune in tomorrow night LIVE to MTV @10:30.
But before we rock this week with her, Racked found some more evidence that seems to point to the rumor's falsehood.
The blog reports that two City producers were casting at Surf Lodge in Montauk on Saturday night for a new girl. Racked wonders why they'd cast if the show has been canceled. They also hear from a "very reliable source" that Olivia plans to go on a "press trip with an accessories company" to Berlin next week, which sounds like good fodder for the show. However, Olivia ginned up a jewelry line with Roberta Freymann, so the trip might be for that.
