Rumors were rampant recently over speculations that Olivia Palermo had secretly wed her fiance, German model Johannes Huebl in a private civil ceremony. When those rumors turned out to be true, fashion enthusiasts eagerly awaited photos of the socialite's gown. The bride looked flawless in a Carolina Herrera ensemble, showing the world her softer side in the name of love. Despite the current romance in the air, this intelligent trendsetter has not always been a slice of heaven.
Palermo's days on MTV's The City tell a different story than the girl we have come to know today. Back then, the sometimes model and actress made it her mission to make the lives of The Hills alum Whitney Port, and former colleague Erin Kaplan's lives a living hell. After gaining employment with Elle magazine, the New York socialite constantly undermined and openly argued with Kaplan, resulting in Palermo's move from print to becoming the new face of Elle.com. Unfortunately this small switch did not change the course of events for these frenemies.
After seeing herself on TV, Palermo has been outspoken by the disappointment of her portrayal on the MTV hit series. She has since stated that her time on television was "ridiculous." Take a look back now on her most dirtiest of digs on The City, and judge for yourself.
1. EVERY ONE OF THESE CLIPS
Here is a little warm up for you to get acquainted, or perhaps just reminded, of how cold and shrill Palermo appeared during her time on The City.
2. HER BLATANT DISREGARD FOR HER ELLE CO-WORKER
This is only one of the many times that Palermo chose to ignore rather than speak at all to her Elle colleague, Erin Kaplan. These two girls brought the most entertainment the show had to offer, it's a true wonder either girl never (fully) lost her cool with the other.
3. All those Eye rolls
It only took one eye roll from this fashionista to cut through your soul and break your little heart.
4. THAT CONFIDENT NATURE THAT TERRIFIED OTHERS
Would it be wrong to say this girl was slightly over confident? Or is she simply brilliant?
5. HER BRUTAL HONESTY
Making other girls cry since the day she was born. Let's hope Palermo has since grown out of this is the type of snobby attitude.
6. WHEN SHE MADE KELLY CUTRONE SUUUPER ANGRY
After Whitney Port finds out that Palermo lied to her and does not at all want to support her fashion line Whitney Eve, the aspiring designer complains to the one person she knows will have her back, Kelly Cutrone. Cutrone's PR firm was working with Port on the line and once she got wind of the situation she let loose with the following:
"Who gives a f*** about her f***ing opinion? I really -- f***, who gives a f***? No, she's dead! She is f***ing dead! I'm gonna f***ing come up like a shark underneath a glass-bottomed boat and f***ing whip the s*** out of her."
7. When ERIN LET HER TRUE FEELINGS OUT ABOUT OLIVIA
Damn! Girl was a not about to raise pom poms for Palermo at any point during the series, but can we stop for a moment and ask how the in hell Kaplan got away with speaking to Elle's creative director Joe Zee like that? Oh right — it's reality television.
8. THE ULTIMATUM: IT'S HER OR ME!
When Kaplan could no longer handle Palermo's snobbery, she went straight to Joe Zee with an ultimatum in the saddest effort to reclaim her post at the magazine. This girl clearly had no idea who she was up against!
