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.
