How Much is Whitney Port's Net Worth in 2022?
The journey of Whitney Port (@whitneyeveport) in the entertainment industry began in 2006 when MTV developed a reality television series The Hills, which was a spin-off series for Lauren Conrad and she was cast in it.
Very much like her costar Lauren, Whitney Port also attempted to branch out her career in the direction of fashion while she was filming for the show. She managed to bag an internship with Teen Vogue under the direction of West Coast Vogue editor Lisa Love which she did during the production of The Hills.
She took her career in fashion and the reality show together seamlessly and excelled at it, which is evident with her current net worth. When The Hills was on its third season in 2007, Whitney Port became promoted as the West Coast fashion contributor for Teen Vogue. In the same year, she once again held an internship, this time with Kelly Cutrone's public relations firm People's Revolution.
In 2008, she left her position as a fashion contributor for Teen Vogue to focus on building an empire in fashion for herself. The same year in March, she debuted her first fashion line Whitney Eve, and after finishing filming for the fourth season of The Hills, she moved to New York City to accept an internship position with Diane von Fürstenberg.
As soon as she left The Hills, she was commissioned to star in her own spin-off series The City. The year was quite a hectic one for Whitney Port.
The reality show billed on her didn't do quite as well as she had hoped. The City had initially placed emphasis on her boyfriend Jay Lyon, their friends Erin Lucas and Adam Senn, and her coworker Olivia Palermo.
But in the very first season, in the first half, she broke up with Lyon, clashed with Olivia in the workplace, and returned to her internship at People's Revolution. The ratings were dreadful. For the second half, in the hopes of getting decent ratings, Lyon, Lucas, and Senn were replaced by other friends of Whitney, Roxy Olin, and Olivia's new coworker Erin Kaplan.
The second season of the show also followed the development of Whitney Eve. She was paid $20,000 per episode. However, the show was hopeless. The final episode aired in July 2010 and in October, it was officially canceled.
After the disastrous stint of her own reality show, for a while, she made do with brief appearances in other reality shows. In late 2010, she served as the executive producer on the online series Hollywood Is Like High School With Money in which she made an appearance.
She used the show as a promotional platform for her Whitney Eve collection. In January 2011, she was featured in a magazine spread in Maxim.
Next month, she published her first book True Whit: Designing a Life of Style, Beauty, and Fun, in which she shared her personal stories, beauty, and fitness secrets, and tried-and-true advice on everything girls need to know to start their lives out with style. Later that year, Whitney Port hosted Genuine Ken, a Hulu-exclusive game show.
Next year, in 2012, Whitney joined the eighth cycle of Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model as a judge. She left the program after the completion of the season. After that, she began to style herself as a lifestyle expert.
In 2019, more than a decade after she had started her career through a reality show, she was cast in the reboot of the same show called The Hills: New Beginnings.
The same year, Whitney Port was named chief brand and strategy officer for 1908 Brands, the Boulder, Colorado-based food and home products manufacturer that had acquired Port's pre-natal nutrition company Bundle Organics in July 2018.
She was responsible for brand and product innovation, social media, marketing, and advertising under the position. In 2021, she launched a new clothing line CozeCo which was a sustainable loungewear brand.
Whitney Port also has a YouTube channel she started in 2012 where she posts reaction videos of her and her husband to her appearances in reality shows. She has a total of 175K subscribers. She also collaborated with Dear Media to start a podcast With Whit in August 2019.
Whitney also owns a 2,400-square-foot, ranch-style home in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles which is valued at $1.5 million with her husband.
After starting her career at the age of 21 with a reality show, branching into the fashion line with many internships while simultaneously doing another reality series billed on her for the sake of exposure, launching multiple fashion lines, and founding a line of nutrition products for pregnant and nursing mothers, at the age of 37, Whitney Port has accumulated a net worth of $5 million.
