With the news that MTV canceled “The City,” fans have already expressed that they’ll miss our favorite ELLE employee, Erin Kaplan. We’ve already heard from Whitney Port, but now Kaplan exclusively tells Zap2it her thoughts on the show’s demise.
“I was a little surprised that it didn’t get picked up,” Kaplan, 27, the youngest PR director in ELLE’s 25 years of fashion coverage, tells us. “I thought it would have run for one more season.”
While Kaplan thought the series could have another season in it, she’s setting her sights to the future.
“It was such a great experience, though,” she says. “And to have the opportunity to work with everyone involved was incredible. I learned so much and am excited for whatever comes next.”
Fans will definitely miss the behind-the-scenes look Kaplan gave us at one of the top fashion magazines in the business, but we’ll also certainly miss the always entertaining, sometimes maddening drama she endured with Olivia Palermo.
Kaplan declined to speak on MTV’s reasons for not picking up the show. The network has not returned our request for comment. We’ll update when they do.
[Update Tuesday, Oct. 26 2:02 p.m. ET An MTV spokesperson says, “‘The City’ will not be returning to MTV for Season 3. Whitney has been a part of our family for many years and we wish her and the cast the best, and hope to collaborate with them again.”]
