Katie Rost spent most of this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac bashing Gizelle Bryant. She made it very clear that she doesn’t like Gizelle, and it seems that these two will never get along.
When Katie wasn’t fighting with, or talking about Gizelle, she was acting as a modeling coach for Gizelle’s 50th photo-shoot! This week in her Bravo Blog Katie opened up about why that day was so important for her friendship with Charrisse. Katie also admits that the “butt grab felt around the world” sent her over the edge, after a summer of listening to Gizelle and Robyn’s “silly comments” about race.
Bravotv.com: What was it like working behind the camera with Charrisse Jackson Jordan and giving her modelling pointers?
Katie Rost: I loved helping Charrisse do her photo montage for her fabulous 50th birthday. It was one of the highlights of my summer actually. Charrisse shocked the sh– out of me by turning out to be one of the most fun, cool, unpretentious, up for anything women in Potomac that day. I got to see a different side of her during the photoshoot than I had before. She was bubbly, happy, and just enjoying her kids and her super sexy self. It was a joy to help (other than moving her dogs around) we went from being social acquaintances to real friends that day.
Bravotv.com: What were you thinking as she was learning how to cheers with l’chaim?
KR:Charrisse learning l’chaim cracked me up. She uses it all the time now. It’s hysterical.
Bravotv.com: Tell us about the butt grabbing incident, your confrontation withGizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon.
KR: The butt grabbing incident kind of pushed me over the edge because I was so f—ing sick of hearing little silly comments about what black people do and what white people do and blah blah blah from Robyn and Gizelle all damn summer. I flipped out, and perhaps letting it get under my skin wasn’t my finest hour. My patience was no longer available to me. It happens. Oh well.
Thoughts on Katie’s blog? Were you surprised Charrisse enlisted Katie’s help? Do you think Robyn and Gizelle are more obsessed with race than Katie? Did that storyline bore you on RHOP?
