Former star of The Hills and fashion designer who now fronts her own MTV reality show, The City, is known for being one of the nicest girls on the TV series. Now she can add nice Jewish girl to her title.


Whitney Port wrote a recent post on her blog during the holiday season and revealed she is in fact a member of the tribe.


“While I am Jewish, my aunt married a man who celebrated Christmas and thus we all got together as a family and celebrated it all!!!  I come from a really big family so we always have the best time when we all get together,” she wrote.


Then during Hannukah, Port posted the following message, “Happy Hanukkah my fellow Jews!!! Hannukah is one of my favorite holidays, not because of the presents or the latkahs or the brisket or the dreidel spinning or the gelt but because it symbolizes how important family truly is...But now all I can really ask for is to simply be with my family. I know I may sound like a corn-dog but take this time to reach out to those who mean the most to you”.
