Star of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Katie Rost, has called off her engagement!
According to Page Six, Katie and her fiancé, Jesse, have called off their engagement four months after he popped the question. Katie revealed to Page Six, “We’re broken up. It wasn’t anything too overly dramatic — it was more so like a car running out of gas.”
Katie said that they are on different pages. She explained, “He wanted certain things right away, and I was just, like, I have so many other things that I need to focus on, and so I need to pause.”
She had been living in Los Angeles with him and she wants to move back to the East Coast to be closer to her children. She’s been in a custody battle with her ex-husband. Katie said, “I have the appeal that apparently they’re going to read it, finally, in January. It’s taken so long, but I feel like I just need to be here, closer, and be able to do whatever I have to do next with that.”
Katie’s ex-fiancé Jesse wanted to start a family and she explained, “Oh, I have to deal with the children I already have. I can’t do that again, so I needed to just wait. I just don’t know if I want to go into straight-up wife mode right now.”
She said that her fiancé “didn’t want me to leave.” She added, “He does speak to me through my mom. He’ll send her a message and is like, ‘How’s Katie doing?’ She kind of gives him updates. I feel like if we were to talk, we’d end up right back together.”
They may reconcile in the future and Katie is open to that. She shared, “I think I’m good with just doing what I’m doing. I mean I’d go out on a date, but don’t get me in trouble.”
Katie and Jesse got engaged in July after dating for five months. He’s an IT businessman and proposed with an heirloom ring that Katie loved. It’s made of gold, sapphire and diamonds. It belonged to his late mother.
Katie responded to the Page Six story about her engagement being called off on her social media:
Katie appeared on the RHOP last season as a friend of the wives. She’s an OG of the RHOP and was on its debut season.
I’m wishing Katie all the best! I’m so ready for the RHOP to be back on soon.
