The City Episode Recap: "Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me" Season 1, Episode 11

Whitney and Olivia haven't been seeing eye-to-eye in their personal lives, and it soon trickled into DVF as well. They're asked to help style a shoot for Elle magazine. The shoot is "crucial" for the spring issue, so Olivia and Whitney start to pull looks. Right away, they disagree when Olivia pulls one thing that Whitney thinks is too much of one color. Then Whitney takes a shot and Olivia calls it "match-y, match-y." They finally have their looks assembled, but Olivia wants to put one back so that they have the exact amount of garments requested. Whitney isn't so sure they should limit the choices, so Olivia gives in and keeps the jacket. Will they impress their bosses?

Whitney is out with Jay and asks him if he's started to look for a place and what his plan of attack is. He says he's going to feel it out and has called a few people, and then she reminds him that she's never lived with a guy and knows they're not ready for this. She doesn't want this forced upon them, but he assures her that he respects her and isn't going to stay with her and be stupid about it. Will Whitney stick to her guns and make him find a place?  

The next day Whitney and Olivia meet with Alixe, the VP, to talk about "the Elle pull." She excitedly tells them that they used one of their picks, but when they ask who pulled the winning look, Olivia says she pulled the jacket (the main feature on the cover) and Whitney pulled the shirt. Way to not only lie, but throw Whit under the bus. To make matters worse, Alixe says they're going to host a luncheon to celebrate and thanks Olivia for an excellent job in spearheading the project. Olivia simply smiles — OK, gloats — and says "thank you" with no mention of Whitney at all.

At Rayuela, Allie, Samantha, Whitney and Erin get together for dinner. Jay comes up, and Whitney admits to having some issues with their relationship. "He'll come in at five in the morning and the whole sleeping situation, intimate part, where has the passion gone? Where is the excitement?" Well that doesn't sound good. Allie reminds her that Jay is a rock star, and he lives a rock-star life. So the question is whether Whitney can deal with it or not.

While the ladies are dining, Jay and Adam are hitting the club. Jay tells his buddy that the one good thing about living with the gf is that he doesn't need to take her out too much. Wow, Jay, what a charmer. Adam talks about the Allie situation but is "not in the mood to be chasing around ass every night." Okay, got it, that's why he's staying with her. And then look who it is, but Danielle, Jay's ex. She's in town and conveniently has nothing to do. The scene ends with him asking her if she's ready to get out of there...is he really going to cheat on Whitney?

At the DVF luncheon, Alixe tells Olivia congrats again, and Olivia goes on and on about how she pulled that look and why. Even Diane herself is there and asks her if she's excited about her first cover. And then Joe Zee, the Creative Director of Elle Magazine, looks at the cover with the girls and yet again, Olivia makes it known that she pulled that look. Poor Whitney, not getting any of the credit she deserves.

After a not so thrilling meal between Whitney and Jay, Whitney meets Allie at Amy's Bread for some girl talk. Allie mentions that Adam slipped up and told her that Jay's ex was out with them. "It makes perfect sense," Whitney says. She's pretty much speechless. "So over all of this," she says as she starts to tear.

Will Whitney move on from Jay? Did anyone else love the music this episode?
