RHOP Star Katie Rost’s Break-Up With Russell Simmons


On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, the ladies took a trip to stay at Ashley Darby’s beach house on the Delaware shore. However, things got a little awkward on the drive there when Gizelle Bryant brought up Katie Rost’s famous ex, Russell Simmons.

Katie clarified that Russell started dating a new girl while she was still living with him – and that she was demoted to the guest room.

Katie explained, “I flipped out on him, then I went off on her, and then I wrote a few blogs about it.” Well, leave it to Gizelle to ask, “Are they Google-able?”

Check out Katie’s break up blog below:

“I’m not a petty, competitive woman! (Yes I am) but I’m totally ok with the fact that my time with Russell was beautiful but brief. I am genuinely happy that our friendship has formed in the wake. I’m also happy that he has found someone else whose company he enjoys. No, no, no people, I’m not going to hate on Julie Henderson! She’s extremely cute for a White girl. (I’m more partial to the ethnic look, but to each their own.)”

“If I make broad and ridiculous statements about entire groups of people, if I criticize someone for aspects that are not fully encompassing our respectful to there true self, which is a divine being, a child of God, a vessel of love and light….. Perhaps I’m just being a human being. Perhaps I’m being funny? Perhaps I’m having an ability to be honest about the realities we live in, how I process them and what my reaction is. At the end of all of that, so what? Sometimes a White Stringy Haired b*tch is a White Stringy Haired b*tch.”

Looking back now, how does Katie feel about her choice to put her feelings (an Russ’s girlfriend) on blast? Well, the former model is sticking by her words, “I own everything I do. I am who I am. I have a right to be happy and sad and everything in between. That’s what life is. I’m not acting or out to protect my ego. Enough said.” When asked if she had any remorse about the public break-up from Russell, Katie clarified that she has made peace with her ex, “I love everything about Russell Simmons and Kimora and how he handles himself as a friend, a mentor, a businessman, and a civil rights advocate. I feel blessed to have him on speed dial. Don’t regret a thing.” Since Katie still has Russ on speed dial, it sounds like the two have made up – probably minus the kissing.

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.

    Done with this show because I’m tired of these classless racist group of women. Every derogatory comment is a white thing. If the script were flipped…well, you never hear any of the white housewives constantly making race distinctions. I don’t think it would be allowed.

      You are 100% correct. Did you read what Katie Rost called the woman that Russell Simmons dumped her for? Katie called her a “white, stringy haired bitch”. Imagine if the reverse were true and the white woman called Katie a “black nappy haired bitch. The woman would have been called a racist.
      This Potomac show is racist to the CORE but notice that every one of them is partially white . Without those white genes, I am wondering what they would look like and whether they would have been given the opportunity to be on this show.

        I doubt the fact that these ladies having any kind of white in them is the reson they are on a show if you havent noticed black brown tan skin is conquering the tv these days not white skin so plz stop fooling your blind self 2nd not all black people are super proud having fare skin or light eyes because they know they might have an ancestor that was raped an impregnated by her white owner so t hose looks were not passed down by choice most of the time but light skin dark skin love your beautiful self an remember god blesses all shades
