Whitney Port, the painfully beige former star of The Hills and The City, is all sexed up in this month’s issue of Maxim. In the shoot, she poses in a black bondage-inspired bra and leopard print panties. And in the accompanying interview, she says that her dream is to be a Victoria’s Secret angel.

While there’s nothing odd about a lingerie model wanting to become an Angel – and net the massive salary and fame bump that comes along with it – it does feel a bit strange for an established star to want to don the legendary wings. It would be like Angelina Jolie trying to get a spot on Dancing with the Stars.

It’s possible that Whitney is just saying that because she thinks it’s sexy and thinks it’s what Maxim readers want to hear. It’s also possible that since her TV show got cancelled and her fashion line has failed to take off, she’s reconsidering her career options. Either way, I’d take Doutzen Kroes or Adriana Lima over Whitney any day of the week.
