'RHOP' OG Katie Rost Issues Public Apology To Andy Cohen And Asks For Chance To Return

Filming for Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Potomac is underway and all cast members, with the rumored exception of Askale Davis, are making a return.

One former cast member who wants her champagne flue back is Katie Rost. Rost was part of the show’s inaugural season but made damaging remarks about Bravo and Andy Cohen publicly.

Now, she’s asking for another chance.

Rost was a full-time housewife in Season 1, and a friend to the show in seasons 2 and 4. The former supermodel’s storyline focused on her impending divorce, being biracial, and her love of Jewish men. By the season finale of season 1, Rost was engaged to her then-boyfriend, Andrew. But by the reunion special, they’d ended things. 

 

She wasn’t asked to return to the show for unknown reasons. But now, she wants another shot.

“I would like to issue a public apology, for statements I made that weren’t cool in the past to Andy Cohen,” the 41-year-old captioned a Black and white photo of her from her old modeling portfolio. “And I do want a job. And I swear I will totally behave. I’m also sorry for my temper tantrums. I feel no thirst. I just want to work. And so I’m issuing this statement publicly,” she wrote, signing off with the hashtag “#katievibes.”

She’s been filming but the network reportedly isn’t interested in making her a ‘Housewife’ again

Despite Rost’s plea, a source tells Page Six exclusively that although Rost has been filming with the cast, there are currently “no plans to bring Katie back as a Housewife or friend.” Former cast member Charisse Jackson Jordan has also been spotted filming with the cast.

She was even more offended that Ashley Darby’s husband was invited to the reunion special for Season 3 but she was not. Darby’s husband Michael was accused of grabbing a cameraman’s butt and sued for federal sexual assault. The charges were eventually dropped.

 

Rost previously lashed out at Cohen and the network for allegedly not inviting her back for the show, writing in an Instagram post that she wanted “to be there.”

“Obviously I have a place there. That’s not right!” Rost wrote in her Instagram post at the time. “You are going to have Michael Darby, aka Chester the Molester there and not me!!!! WTF Bravo! Not cool.”
