Katie Rost may have been a main wife on The Real Housewives of Potomac, but she sadly hasn’t come across as a confident and strong woman. During the first few episodes, Rost was obsessed with knowing when she would get the ring from her boyfriend. She really wanted to get engaged, but he felt the pressure and didn’t have any plans of proposing. After a few episodes and plenty of public pressure, Andrew told Katie he would have proposed already if she would just lay off a bit.
According to a new Bravo report, Katie Rost is now revealing why she acted the way she did on this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac. Katie is clearly still a little stressed about her relationship, and now her co-stars are starting to act out. During the last episode, Katie Rost was acting crazy and drinking too much with her boyfriend. She ended up making out in public in front of her co-stars, who were not pleased with the behavior. And now that Gizelle Bryant decided to step away from her charity, Katie isn’t too happy.
“It may seem that I got upset to people who don’t know me well. I honestly wasn’t upset. I was just annoyed and frustrated. Robyn Dixon and Gizelle were not people I was considering asking to be on the host committee in general because we just don’t have the same style. They tend to find fault and point out negatives and I just go for it because I know I can always make it work. I was trying to expand my group of contacts and friends, but it’s pretty obvious Gizelle doesn’t like me and isn’t likely to help me with anything. Robyn I think would help, but she has a lot going on financially and working for free under a crunch situation probably wasn’t on her radar,” Katie Rost reveals in her blog.
And she explains that she and Gizelle don’t really get along. Bryant was concerned about her co-star during Ashley Darby’s birthday party, where Rost was acting as if she was under the influence of something, but she doesn’t want to help out with Rost’s charity event. And when she decided to bow out of the charity planning, Katie wasn’t too surprised.
“Gizelle always has a nasty undertone to what she says. I couldn’t honestly care less about anything that comes out of her mouth. She isn’t someone who stimulates me with provocative banter, it just strikes me as silly. I love her for who and what she is, which for me is a person who challenges me to stay peaceful in the face of racism, ignorance and pointless troublemaking. She is very pretty to look at and she makes me laugh on occasion, other than that we have nothing to connect over,” Katie Rost reveals.
But it does sound like Rost was surprised at how things unfolded, as she and Gizelle clearly don’t get along. The tension between them got worse when Katie called Bryant a hypocrite. It is definitely easy to stay that these two may not be the best of friends.
And while Rost is still waiting for an engagement, she continues to talk about Andrew and their relationship in the press. According to OK! Magazine, she recently revealed that it was actually her mother who introduced her to Andrew. But one has to wonder if her own mother is as pushy about the engagement as she is. According to various Instagram posts, it sounds like Katie has yet to get engaged, as she isn’t sporting a ring on her finger.
