Work Ethic: (Noun) The principle that hard work is intrinsically virtuous or worthy of reward.
The new MTV "Hills" spin-off, "The City," which follows Whitney Port as she "works" for Diane von Furstenberg premieres tonight; (you know Heidi and Spencer have got to be shitting themselves with jealousy) and if you're wondering how it is for other von Furstenberg employees having the show there, the answer is "totally fun!" Oh, kidding
... It's predictably a nightmare.
"She doesn't really work. She is hardly ever in the office." Those who do work for von Furstenberg, however, are in the office daily and "can't get their work done because MTV tells them they can't move any thing at their work stations. They do so many reshoots that everything has to look exactly the same every day." (Source)
That sounds really, really inspiring; to have worked incredibly hard to break into the fashion industry only to come second to a hotshot virtuoso who is so
good at what she does that she doesn't have to actually do any work, show any credentials, or even be present in general to be super awesome at her job. So when I say that sounds "really inspiring," what I mean is that I hope Whitney gets used to the taste of urine in her coffee. Because, yep: There's gonna be some urine.
