Katie Rost Dishes on her Engagement to Andrew


Katie Rost is dishing on her engagement to Andrew in a new interview with Bravo! Rost also reveals that it wasn’t her who called Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon bi-racial, it was Ashley Darby. Katie shares if she has any regrets after the luncheon.

Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Gizelle invited you to lunch on the phone?
Katie Rost:
It’s always a joy to get together with the ladies, but I admit to experiencing hesitancy when Gizelle called me– in jest perhaps?– trying to pull me into a “come to Jesus” lunch. My cynical side DID assume she just wanted to have a dramatic “attack session” style luncheon where perhaps she did some of the following: 1. She wears a dramatic hat that just screams, tolerance, style, subtlety. 2. She says dramatic things while sitting back, arching an eyebrows waiting like for someone to allow her to launch truly fascinating stories about examples of behavior that are either very White or very Black (but NEVER are they EVER– any mixture of to two!) 3. She does dramatic stuff like jump up from a table, pointing and screaming, when Katie dares to say “obviously I’m a black woman, I’m also bi-racial!”

I mean the fact is, I was just plain old psyched to not only be invited to lunch… But to find that all of my wild mental assumptions were completely, utterly and entirely unfounded.

Bravotv.com: Tell us about the proposal! What was it like finally seeing Andrew on his knees asking for your hand?
Andrew proposing to me was perfect. It was magic and romance and love and just perfect. The perfect place, perfect proposal, perfect moment in time and I’ll never forget that amazing day. We laughed and cried and the cows at my farm didn’t mind our rated xxx make out sessions which followed the proposal.

Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Robyn said you needed a black history lesson, and Gizelle said you acted like “it was a problem to be black”? How did you feel during this discussion?
First, it was Ashley who called Gizelle and Robyn bi-racial, not I. For some reason people keep saying it was me, it wasn’t. But I still took on the fight, because who cares who said it. They kept going there for months with the “this is a white thing, that’s a black thing” comments. I simply responded. If any white person ever dared to say “White people don’t do that, why are you acting black or, is that a black thing” I shutter to think of the backlash.

People who listen, who have ears to hear, will hear the point I was making. People who want to be hardened to listening, won’t. I’m over it. I believe in equality. If you don’t, that’s your problem.

Bravotv.com: Your drama with the ladies seemed to end at the luncheon, with you even apologizing for getting so heated. Did you feel everything was settled walking away that day?
I was disappointed with myself that I cared to get sucked into negativity. But I’m human. I forgive myself and everyone else. At least, until next time…

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Although I couldn’t stand the way she begged to be engaged she is absolutely right about everything else, I was also surprised with that farm she owned, I thought it was so quaint. I think she is very witty, I love me some wit!

      Agreed. I love the farm scene as well. In my job, I’ve discovered there are 2 types of model: those who squirrel away their monies and invest it for their own security, and those who party it away and end up destitute. I’ve learned some of my best investment tips from models (with conservative parents who advise them). Freelancing is not a joke, you have to plan for your life very early on for much later. The average print model has 15 years in which they make a boat load of money: your average no-name, non-recognizable Sunday circular department store girl pulls about the same salary as a high-level corporate executive. After your first 4 years of establishing yourself in your career, you get in there and get your assets together, quick, fast, and in a hurry!

        Disagree… she was wrong to beg for an engagement and anyone over the age of 30 who settles a disagreement by repeatedly calling the other person names like “stupid” and “dumb” is probably the one who is intellectually challenged. The nicest thing I’ve observed about Katie is that she is well-spoken and attractive but clearly has a crazy tick. Gizelle has her own issues too but Katie was definitely not “in the right” about everything else.

        • Naynay

          She certainly was in the right, the only thing I found aggravating about her was begging for marriage, she had every right to call those racist witches out?

    Looks like she beat a proposal out of him but gagged when she saw the size of the ring. If you blinked, you missed it. Such a fake proposal. He feels the pressure, she is on a wedding hunt. So unromantic.

  • I get it, Katie wants to be married and will not waste her youth on someone not willing to commit. Katie is correct, however I hope that Andrew’s resistance is superficial because he’s too old to expect women in their 30’s to play house.
