Whitney PortÂ certainly likes to keep her relationships in the reality-TV sphere: In 2009 she brought then-boyfriend Jay LyonÂ on her The HillsÂ spinoff The City; last summer she broke up with The Buried LifeÂ star Ben Nemtin; and now Us WeeklyÂ reports that Whitney’s dating Tim Rosenman, one of the producers on The City.
According to IMDb, Rosenman worked on only one episode of The CityÂ as a field producer, a source says that he and Whitney “kept in touch and have always had crushes on each other. Now they are full-blown together.” You’d think so, after they vacationed together in Miami in late January.
They both have friends in New York and L.A. and run in the same fashion and celebrity circles. Not to mention, they both worked on a fake reality show. In fact, we’ve seen this story before: The 2004 ABC Family TV movie I Want to Marry Ryan Banks, where Emma CaulfieldÂ is the fan favorite on a Bachelor-style reality show… but she’s fallen for the bachelor’s agent, played by Bradley Cooper.
In the meantime, we’ll be curious to see how much their reality history colors Whitney and Tim’s relationship, or if they can operate independently of how they met. They’ve done a pretty good job already of being secretive; maybe there’s hope.
