I'm Whitney Port, and a lot has happened since you last saw me on The Hills. For starters, I'm a mom, I got married to the love of my life, Timmy, I run a business outside of fashion - it's time we finally catch up. There are so many facets that make up my life: relationships, parenthood, entrepreneurship, beauty, fashion, health, wellness and much more. Join me each week as we meet and discuss all these topics and more with trusted experts and favorite people on earth. Hopefully, we can embark on this new journey together with openness, honesty and a little bit of Whit.

Do you guys watch my YouTube channel? You should. Timmy and I spent the beginning of quarantine binging and filming our reactions to ‘The City,’ my spinoff from ‘The Hills’! It was so much fun and nostalgic (and cringy). We are amazed at the community we have built while premiering our videos with LIVE chats on Wednesdays and Fridays on our channel. Join us! We thought it would be fun to interview some cast members from the show. First up is Roxy Olin! Roxy and I have been friends forever. She was my coworker and rock who got me through the strange life of filming a reality TV show. We walk down memory lane and share the process of filming including some juicy insider info.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that pregnancy was a mix of extremes - major highs and major lows. I wasn’t that stereotypical mom who felt glowy or sexy or empowered. I wanted to be excited, but I couldn’t force it and that made me feel weak and unstable. I felt really alone and wished I had been able to hear other voices singing the same tune...a community of humans bringing other humans into the world with a validating and encouraging tone. In this episode, I talk with Ariane Goldman, founder of HATCH, the most amazing maternity brand that’s mission includes cultivating a community. With over 100K followers on Instagram, the HATCH community is a place for mom’s looking for support and relief. Ariane and I discuss how she built her brand, the common denominator of motherhood and the importance of adapting as a mother (this year has really proven this). Hope all you moms or moms to be love this one! This episode is brought to you by HOMER.

I love beauty. I love exploring new products, trends and everything in between. Obviously beauty has changed dramatically over this year. I know I am wearing far less makeup than ever before. It’s nice, but I also miss getting glammed up. My quarantine beauty routine is mainly just a lot of skincare! Not complaining. I have been so curious about what has been happening to the industry since Covid hit. I zoomed with Faith Xue, Editorial Director of Byrdie, a one stop shop blog for everything beauty for everyone. Faith and I discuss how our own beauty routines have changed, the future of the beauty industry and brands and celebrities to watch! Faith has been with Byrdie since 2014 as one of their first editors. Prior to joining Byrdie, Faith was a staff editor for L’Oréal’s beauty website, where she oversaw editorial strategy and daily content production. After a brief stint at Angeleno magazine, she realized her heart was in digital. Her first job, ghost-writing for a major beauty YouTuber, was how her love for beauty began—and where she discovered the power of social media. Hope my beauty lovers enjoy this one!

WE ALL HAVE TO VOTE. After the first presidential debate, I was overwhelmed to say the least. I really wanted to talk with an expert about questions I had about where we are in politics and the election. Political strategist, Emily Tisch Sussman, and I discuss feelings after the debate, political anxiety, voting by mail, women’s rights, her hope in politics, the importance of holding your representatives accountable post election and so much more.  Emily has been at the forefront of executing strategy for the progressive movement in America for more than a decade.

I cannot tell you how beyond grateful I am for my career. It has given me the ability to truly pursue my dreams like designing a clothing line and candle collection and it allows me to create this beautiful life with my husband, Timmy, and Sonny. However, my multi-faceted business brings along a number of stressors which can bleed into my personal life. During my chat with Kelsey Murphy, Business and Life Coach, we discuss how to battle that negative internal dialogue we all struggle with when we feel anxious and overwhelmed. She explains that by creating a Three Year Manifesto of your dream life you can prioritize what is most important to you in your life and business. Kelsey has worked with Fortune 500 companies, like Facebook & Twitter, industry thought leaders like Marie Forleo and her BSchoolers, as well as celebrity nutritionists, coaches, and other brilliant people creating meaningful businesses and lives. Her coaching work has been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, Huffington Post, LiveStrong, Living Healthy, and more. When Kelsey's not coaching, you can find her hosting the Whiskey & Work podcast giving her wise (and sometimes comical) advice on navigating the waters of business, life, and relationships.

As promised, here is more from my chat with Lauren Conrad! I feel like we could have gone for hours. In this episode, Lauren and I catch up on all things THE HILLS, our reality tv obsessions, motherhood and a really fun round of rapid fire questions! Enjoy! Produced by Dear Media
By far the question I get asked the most is, “Are you still friends with Lauren?” For the longest time I would answer, “We are still friends, but we don’t really keep in touch.” That was the truth, but I also wondered if there was an issue between us that was unresolved. In part one of my two part talk with Lauren, I finally get to the bottom of it, plus so much more. Lauren and I went through something completely life-changing together, and when it was over we went our separate ways. Business, family, fame, life, everything that has happened since the show ended, and we’ve never talked about it. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more important catch up session. Lauren is a television personality, New York Times bestselling author, fashion designer and philanthropist. In 2009, she launched LC Lauren Conrad exclusively at Kohl’s. In 2013, she co founded The Little Market whose mission is to build sustainable partnerships with artisans around the world by connecting them with customers through an online marketplace and to empower women artisans to rise above poverty and support their families. AND, in August 2020, Lauren launched her beauty brand, Lauren Conrad Beauty. It is an eco-conscious brand that meets the desires of cosmetics consumers at a price point that everyone can enjoy without sacrificing quality. I attempted to up my eyeliner game with help from the eyeliner expert herself. We are getting into EVERYTHING. Hope you love! Visit to get a FREE quote right now.

Sonny is really testing us when it comes to sleep. He is delaying bedtime and waking up way too early. We needed major help! Timmy and I had a Zoom call with our sleep expert, Alanna McGinn, for some advice and tools. Yes, having a Sleep Expert may sound nuts, but you guys, sleep is EVERYTHING! If we utilize experts for our mental and physical, why shouldn’t we for something we do for half of our lives?? That is a rhetorical question.  Alanna is the Founder and Sleep Consultant of Good Night Sleep Site, Parent Prep Educator, Stress Management Coach, Director for the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC), and serves on the faculty of the Family Sleep Institute. She has helped us sleep train Sonny since he was born and is a true savior. Everything she tells us to do works. We stick to her rules and Sonny adjusts so naturally. It’s actually really crazy.
