This news comes to light after one gossip platform attempted to shame Katie over same-sex hookup with a fellow Potomac Housewife.
The Black Socialites Instagram posted a photo of Katie with the headline: “Can you guess which former RHOP castmember Katie Rost tried to have lesbian sex with?”
The post continued:
Many fans believe that the former Potomac Housewife Katie allegedly hooked up with was Charrisse Jackson Jordan.
Katie responded to the shady post and confirmed that she did have a sexual relationship with one of her former RHOP co-stars.
She also made it clear that the post was “mean-spirited and unnecessary.” Adding that “it’s evil to shame us.”
“I was going to bite my tongue, but as a bi-sexual woman who had a sexual relationship with a cast member when I was on the show is my own business and hers,” Katie wrote. “It is mean-spirited and unnecessary to write this. We have a friendship that will last beyond this hateraid. I am proud of that and of love that we made. I think it’s evil to shame us for what we had and have #rhop #bisexualpride #lesbian #katievibes #katierost.”
Meanwhile, several fans, including fellow Housewife Braunwyn Windham-Burke stood up for Katie. Many felt the post was necessarily mean and “perpetuates homophobia” and “sex-shaming.”
“There’s no shame in anyone sleeping with anyone else when they’re both, or however many, are consenting adults. Using same-sex relations as a form of gossip or ‘tea’ only reinforces that same-sex relations is not okay, and it perpetuates homophobia, along with sex-shaming #rhop,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“I couldn’t of said it better myself, being an ally isn’t wearing a cute outfit on a float, it’s standing up for people and giving them the grace to be themselves,” Braunwyn added in agreement.
RHOP airs on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.
