Whitney Eve Port (born March 4, 1985) is an American television personality, fashion designer, and author. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, she attended Crossroads School in Santa Monica as a teenager. In 2006, Port came to prominence after being cast in the reality television series The Hills, which chronicled the personal and professional lives of Port and friends Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, and Audrina Patridge. During its production, she held positions with Teen Vogue and Kelly Cutrone‘s People’s Revolution.
After moving to New York City to begin employment with Diane von Fürstenberg in 2008, Port was commissioned to star in her own spin-off series The City, which originally documented the lives of Port and companions Jay Lyon, Olivia Palermo, and Adam Senn. After undergoing several casting adjustments and receiving underwhelming ratings, the series was canceled in 2010, after airing two seasons. Port launched her fashion line “Whitney Eve” in 2009. In 2012, she served as a judge on the eighth cycle of Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model.
Life and career
1985–2005: Early life and education
Whitney Eve Port was born in Los Angeles, California, to parents Jeffrey and Vicki (née Woskoff). Her father owned the fashion company Swarm, and died in March 2013 from kidney cancer. Port has one brother Ryan and three sisters Ashley, Paige, and Jade, and was raised in a Jewish household.
Port attended Warner Avenue Elementary School, where she served as her fifth-grade class president, and was further educated at Crossroads School during middle and high school. In 2007, she graduated from the University of Southern California, having majored in gender studies and was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. Afterwards, Port held internships with the magazines Women’s Wear Daily and W.
2006–10: The Hills and The City
In 2006, MTV developed the reality television series The Hills as the spin-off of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. It originally chronicled the lives of Lauren Conrad, who appeared on its predecessor, her housemate Heidi Montag, and friends Audrina Patridge and Port. During production of the first season, Port and Conrad held internships with Teen Vogue under the direction of West Coast Vogue editor Lisa Love; she stated that they had to interview successfully for the positions, “regardless of what the cameras wanted”. In 2007, Port notably tripped down the stairs during a live segment for Good Morning America. During the third season of The Hills, Port was promoted as the West Coast fashion contributor for Teen Vogue, and left the position in 2008. Later that year, Port and Conrad began employment with Kelly Cutrone‘s PR firm, People’s Revolution. Port later stated that she rejected an opportunity to become housemates with Conrad and Patridge, commented that she “[prefers] to keep some things private”.
In March 2008, Port debuted her first fashion line “Whitney Eve”. Upon the conclusion of the fourth season of The Hills that December, Port moved to New York City to accept a position with Diane von Fürstenberg. That month, she was commissioned to star in the spin-off series The City, which additionally placed emphasis on her boyfriend Jay Lyon, their friends Erin Lucas and Adam Senn, and her co-worker Olivia Palermo. During the first half of the inaugural season, Port severed ties with Lyon, clashed with Palermo at the workplace, and ultimately returned to People’s Revolution. After underwhelming ratings, Lyon, Lucas, and Senn were replaced by Port’s friend Roxy Olin and Palermo’s new co-worker Erin Kaplan in the second half of the first season. The series’ second season saw the development of “Whitney Eve”, and aired its final episode in July 2010 before being officially cancelled that October.
2011–present: Retail projects and marriage
In late 2010, Port made an appearance on the online series Hollywood Is Like High School with Money, for which she served as the executive producer. The program additionally served as a promotional platform for her “Whitney Eve” collection. In January 2011, Port was featured in a magazine spread in Maxim. In February, Port released her first book True Whit: Designing a Life of Style, Beauty, and Fun. Later that year, she hosted the Hulu-exclusive game show Genuine Ken.
In 2012, Port was confirmed to join the judging panel of the eighth cycle of Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model, alongside fellow new hire Tyson Beckford and returning judges Elle Macpherson and Julien MacDonald. She left the program upon the conclusion of the season. Port had a cameo role in the film What To Expect When You’re Expecting, starring Jennifer Lopez.
In March 2013, Whitney’s father, Jeffrey Port, died from a year-long battle with kidney cancer. In November 2013, she announced her engagement to her former The City producer, Tim Rosenman, whom she began dating in 2012. They were married on November 7, 2015. In February 2017, Port and Rosenman announced they were expecting their first child. They welcomed a son, Sonny Sanford, on July 27, 2017.

Milford, Connecticut, U.S.
|Spouse(s)||Brendan Rooney (m. 2013)|
Christy Carlson Romano (born March 20, 1984[a]) is an American actress and singer. She is known for her role as Ren Stevens in the Disney Channel sitcom Even Stevens, and as the voice of the titular character in the Disney Channel animated series Kim Possible.
Romano was born in Milford, Connecticut, the youngest of four children of Anthony and Sharon Romano. She began her career at six years old when she was cast in several national tours of Broadway shows, including Annie, The Will Rogers Follies with Keith Carradine and The Sound of Music with Marie Osmond. She made her first feature film appearance in 1996 as a singing “Chiquita Banana” in Woody Allen‘s Everyone Says I Love You. She also appeared in Henry Fool (1997) and Looking for an Echo (2000).
Romano made her Broadway debut in 1998 as Mary Phagan in the musical Parade by Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown. In 2002, Romano became the first person to act in three Disney Channel projects simultaneously, supplementing her work on Even Stevens with a starring role in Cadet Kelly, alongside Hilary Duff, and voice acting as the title character in Kim Possible. She was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her work on Kim Possible. The show inspired an adventure scavenger hunt activity at Disney’s Epcot which ran for over five years, as well as two Disney Channel movies Kim Possible: So the Drama and Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time. She voiced Yuffie Kisaragi in the English version of the movie Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, as well as in the Disney/Square game Kingdom Hearts. Throughout her teens and twenties, Romano starred in movies for ABC Family and Disney Channel, including Campus Confidential, Taking Five, The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold and The Cutting Edge: Chasing the Dream. Various other appearances include MTV‘s Kaya, CBS‘s Joan of Arcadia, The WB‘s Summerland and TNT‘s Hawthorne. In February 2004, Romano began a 31-week run as Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast on Broadway. In September 2008, she joined the Broadway company of Avenue Q as Kate Monster for several weeks. She starred as Michelle off-Broadway in White’s Lies at New World Stages in 2010, alongside Betty Buckley and Tuc Watkins. Romano penned a novel, Grace’s Turn, for Disney literary subsidiary Hyperion, which received accolades by the New York Public Library (NYPL) as the 2007 Teenage Book of the Year. In 2012, she directed a music video for Steph Gold’s “THE SUN” which was accepted into the Los Angeles Shorts Fest 2012. Amongst other titles, Romano has appeared in many films since her Disney days including Lifetime’s Deadly Daycare, Wes Craven’s The Girl in the Photographs, Loosies, and Christmas with the Andersons. In March 2016, she directed her first feature, Christmas All Over Again starring Nickelodeon‘s Sean Ryan Fox and YouTube star Todrick Hall; Lionsgate released the film for Christmas 2016.
While working at Disney, Romano recorded songs as part of soundtracks for Kim Possible and other Disney projects. She first sang on the Disney Channel on a musical episode of Even Stevens which led to more singing on the series and with Disney in general. In 2004, Walt Disney Records released Romano’s debut album Greatest Disney TV & Film Hits. After her Broadway run of Beauty and the Beast Romano signed a record deal with Jason Flom at Atlantic Records. Flom was fired before Romano released her first album and Romano’s deal was not honored. She continued to write music with Kara DioGuardi and The Matrix and placed her songs in several movies.
After her singing career, Romano used her vocal talents to narrate for audiobooks, including Pop Princess by Rachel Cohn, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin, and Beautiful Blue World by Suzanne M. LaFleur. She also narrated audiobooks “To Catch A Killer” by Sheryl Scarborough, “Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits” by David Wong, “Kaledoscope Hearts” by Claire Contreras, and the “Adventures of Owl Series” by Kristi Charish.
On August 22, 2006, she published her own novel, Grace’s Turn, for which she provided the narration as well.
Romano attended Barnard College at Columbia University and received her degree in Film Studies. Romano and writer-producer Brendan Rooney met in February 2011 while she was studying at Barnard College. They became engaged in November and, after two years of engagement, married on December 31, 2013 at the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta. In June 2016, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child, a daughter, who was born in late December 2016.
