‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ Star Katie Rost Shades the Ratings

People have been comparing RHOP and RHOA.

“Real Housewives of Potomac” fans have placed the show on a pedestal for years now. Some even compare it to “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” And when it comes to drama, there are some viewers who believe Potomac is giving the Atlanta show a run for its money.

Of course, the latest season has been talked about for several months now. Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels’ physical altercation has been well documented. And it’s one of the main reasons people were excited to watch.

However, the ratings have been less than stellar.

In fact, the ratings for the latest episode have been a hot topic on social media. And the episode only brought in 783,000 viewers. To be fair, it was a holiday weekend. However, this is the lowest ratings ever for RHOP.

Katie throws some shade.

With the show being full of drama, some people aren’t understanding why there’s been such a drop-off. This is true especially since Americans are in the middle of a pandemic, and not everyone is comfortable leaving the house outside of the essentials.

However, Katie Rost seems to believe she knows what’s behind the decline. And that would be her absence. Hours ago, she posted a screenshot of last week’s ratings.

And she wrote, “No #thekatiefactor equals no ratings #RHOP #katievibes #katierost.com”

Katie’s exit seemed abrupt. She had drama with Ashley Darby that excited viewers, however, she was not invited to the reunion so the two women could hash things out.

Katie did recently tell her followers that she doesn’t want to be on the show anyway. And she’d prefer to get a root canal instead.

    I absolutely loved Katey on the show. She is unapologetic and authentic. She knows how to read people. I really hope they bring her back!!!

    Ratings weren’t great when Katie was on the show, so why is she being arrogant? This show was never a ratings draw and falters even more when RHOA isn’t a lead in. Katie is delusional.

    Girl bye. Ratings are down because people are boycotting Bravo right now.

      Thank you. Ratings are down on multiple Bravo shows because of the boycott and the timing of these kind of shows. People are also getting back into scripted shows.

    The f-ck? Ratings are dropping for multiple shows. There’s the boycott and the fact that people are getting tired of most reality shows. Love & Hip Hop, Black Ink, and Housewives are all in trouble. And Married to Medicine is next.

    I thought Katie was all about preserving her peace and not involving herself in pettiness…. why is trying to shade something being negative 🤦🏾‍♀️🙄🙄 as much as she didn’t care to deal with toxicity while on the show she seems to engage in online when it comes to the show trying to shade it or someone on the show. Girl if you want to be back on cause you need them checks then just raise her hand and @ Andy. I’m sure he’ll bring you back . Bravo is good for bringing back a mfer who needs a check 😂🤣😂

    I am disappointed in the show, before the show aired, they were advertising that season 5 was going to be worth the wait, it was going t be the best season yet, well I have not seen any excitement yet, matter of fact, it is very boring, now I’m just waiting to see the fight. That might be the only excitement we might get.

    She’s not the reason the ratings are bad. People are tired of seeing Black women fight on ignorant reality shows. You can get better drama on scripted shows anyway. How many times can you see women fight, go to dinner, then fight again before it gets boring? I’ll save my energy for LoveCraft Country.

    Katie is cool but this is a delusional take. Bravo made a mistake bringing this show back after RHOA finished. RHOP has always needed RHOA as the lead in to do well. A fight wasn’t going to change that. And to be honest, RHOA is struggling too. People are getting bored. It’s the same storylines every season.
