Whitney Port and Jay Lyon: Split

Whitney Port

Spoiler alert: the reality showmance is over.

For those people who actually watch the spin-off of MTV’s reality smash The Hills entitled The City, you know that the show’s star Whitney Port has had some issues with her on-screen romantic interest, Tamarama lead singer Jay Lyon. Well, it may or may not air on tonight’s season finale,but it appears that the couple has called it quits. A friend said, "They broke up on Monday. Whitney did it over the phone, she was basically just not happy for a while and decided she really wanted to end it. Jay said they should talk things over, but it seems her mind is made up." Rumor has it the couple took a break for a while while Jay toured with his band but Whitney has decided that it’s now completely over. "There was no cheating or anything like that, she’s just finally fed up."

Since we’re a little jilted about whether reality romances are real or fake (especially after the Heidi Spencer-Spencer Pratt "wedding") whether Whitney and Jay were really dating at all is suspect. But for those of you who watch the show and were rooting for them as a couple, it appears that things are over for now. Cheer up, though. The new (and we think final) season of The Hills is coming soon at the beginning of April. That should fill the void on your DVR.
