The City Episode Recap: "The Truth Hurts" Season 1, Episode 7

On this week's The City, Allie gets hit with the cold, hard truth, and Erin decides it's time to go out and get herself a job. At lunch, Erin tells the girls that everything is just amaaaaazing because Whitney is working at DVF, Sammy got that Bergdorf job, Allie is modeling and Erin has been busy, uh, organizing her closet? Whitney tells her that if she wants to work on a career, it's time to do something about it. Allie then offers to hook her up with her manager Scott, who's in the process of hiring. Then Whitney brings up a big birthday party coming up for Kelly Cutrone. After last week's fiasco with the BF, Allie says, "I'm there, girl's night out, I need it."

Since everything happens so fast on MTV time, Erin already has a meeting set with Scott. If this scenario isn't reminiscent of Heidi's foray into Bolthouse on The Hills, I don't know what is. Anywho, he asks her what's she done for the last year and half since graduating and she mentions that she's unofficially been styling and doing some soul-searching as well. He seems to like her and tells her about the open production coordinator position, which we later find out he offers to her.

Later that day, Whitney, Erin and Allie are chatting about Kelly's upcoming party. Whit warns the girls that she tends to say exactly what's on her mind and Allie says that she loves people like that. If she only knew. Whitney also tells them that if Kelly likes you, she's the best, but if she doesn't, you do not want to be around her. So they head out to the party and upon introductions, Allie immediately asks Kelly what she thinks of her outfit, you know since she's so honest and all.

Allie gets a little more than she bargained for, because Kelly proceeds to ask her, "Are you okay? You're so skinny." Even after Allie says she's fine, Kelly says, "Well, that's a question you need to ask yourself." Ouch. After Kelly continues to harp on her, Allie finally walks out. I love the side comment from the guy next to Kelly: "You're a lot of fun."

Also at the party, Erin runs into a blast from the past named J.R. They seem to get along, since the next day he's still at her apartment. After he leaves, Erin tells Whitney that J.R. was her high school boyfriend and first love. Duncan, her current beau, is the first guy since who's even measured up. Allie then joins the convo, which soon leads back to the Kelly incident. "That's my life, I'm used to it." Allie says. Whitney seems to be hesitant in her comments, but then says, "Well, if you're healthy and you're happy, that's all that matters." Allie then starts mimicking Kelly, which is funny since she was the one most excited to meet her.

Erin starts work at One. What's up with the crazy earrings? Why does her brand-new boss, Scott, give her a welcome kiss hello? And why is she spilling all the details of her "on-hiatus" boyfriend, and run-in with the ex, to the co-worker she just met?

That night Adam and Allie go to the One Management dinner party, and what do you know, Kelly Cutrone shows up. She meets Jay, who is also there (does this mean he's a model with them as well?) and then apologizes to Allie for hurting her feelings. Allie is clearly still bitter as she keeps whispering about Kelly in her boyfriend's ear. He offers to "say something" to her but Allie doesn't want to make a scene.

Even after being warned by Olivia that she shouldn't get involved, Whitney decides to talk to Kelly about what happened. "What I love you for is your outspoken nature and how honest you are, but Allie's feelings were hurt." Kelly then tells Whitney how it is: "I'd like to say I'm sorry for that, but I'm not." Whitney finds herself in an awkward position because she has a new friend she doesn't want to offend, but Kelly is telling her she couldn't not say anything. "The truth doesn't always come in a shiny bluebird on someone's shoulder. The truth hurts." Best line of the night by far.

Do you think Kelly's "tell-it-like-it-is" attitude crossed the line?
