Katie Rost has spent all of her time on The Real Housewives of Potomac begging her boyfriend to put a ring on it, or convincing us of how important she is in Potomac. We haven’t seen too much of Katie with the other women, and she missed the whiskey tasting this week in favor of a social event with Andrew in D.C. In this week’s Bravo Blog Katie was very defensive, as she has been receiving a lot of backlash on social media for her portrayal on the show. It’s still early in the season so Katie has time to redeem herself, and I’m hopeful we will see a more laid back, chill side of her when she is out having fun with the RHOP ladies!
Bravotv.com: Do you regret missing the whiskey tasting?
Katie Rost: I had to keep my priorities straight. And though the whiskey tasting looked like a blast and I was impressed with the ladies ability to knock em back with Ashley…I can’t handle hard liquor at all, so I probably avoided a mean hangover by skipping the whiskey and staying on purpose to socialize to grow my network for the Rost Foundation.
Bravotv.com: What are the keys to schmoozing at a philanthropy event?
KR: Andrew and I made some great connections at the Washingtonian Magazine event and when I do events this year I know I can count on some heavy hitters to have my back. To socialize with an agenda you have to have a pitch and purpose. I went in knowing who I needed to target. You are only as strong as the network that believes in you and supports you. Your net worth is determined by your network.
Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind when Andrew said that you two would’ve already been engaged and married if you hadn’t previously brought it up?
KR: Andrew is a bullsh**ter. I am not thirsty, though I did seem to be enjoying my wine. Hey, I expect the best and I let my values be known. I will not lower my standards. I believe in marriage. My grandma had a great saying that sums it up…Piss or get off the pot!
Thoughts on Katie’s blog? Are you a fan of Katie so far? Do you think she seems “thirsty” when it comes to Andrew? Are you hoping to see a different side of Katie as the season goes on?
