'The City' star Olivia Palermo working on her own TV show
Image Credit: Jim Wright/MTV All right everyone, gird your loins! Olivia Palermo, the villain of MTV’s The City, is stepping back onto the small screen. Elle reports that Palermo confirmed the news herself while in Barcelona this week. “[I’m] working on a new television project, my own show,” she said. No word on the show’s details just yet; reps for both Palermo and MTV did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
We’ve seen Palermo take credit for pulling winning looks at Diane von Furstenberg, and straddle the line between mediocre and termination-worthy performance as an Accessories “Editor” at Elle. Will her future project continue to follow Olivia “The Career Woman,” or will we get to know Olivia “The Person”? (What do we really know about this so-called socialite, anyway?) Whatever it may be, let’s just hope that a starring vehicle doesn’t mean fewer passive-aggressive coffee dates … because those death stares are the money shots, folks. Isn’t Olivia at her best when she’s at odds with someone else?
Personally, I’d love to see her judge a reality competition show — I’m not sure if she’s the host-type — if only for her inevitable snide remarks and overall disinterest in being there. What say you, PopWatchers? Is The Olivia Show just what Palermo had her eyes on all along? Now that The City has been canceled, would you like to see Olivia return to TV?
