It was previously assumed the entire cast would return for RHOP season 2, however Katie announced on Twitter that she isn’t coming back – and implied she was fired for being boring! I mean what’s boring about Katie staring at the ceiling in between monotone begging Andrew to propose?

So why did Bravo let Katie go? Whisperings say that her on-again/off-again fiance Andrew Martin refused to participate in this season, because their relationship being on the rocks and he is trying to rebuild his image and career after finally getting off probation related to some old drug charges. Apparently associating with Bravo isn’t good for one’s reputation?!
Furthermore, it seems Katie and Andrew are postponing any wedding planning (indefinitely). Another issue is that supposedly Katie didn’t want the ins-and-outs of her divorce to become fodder for her Katie-hating castmates to exploit on TV. I’ve also heard Katie’s ex-husband was allegedly against their 3 young children filming.
There was additional speculation that The Rost Foundation, was uhhhh… not the philanthropic organization Katie presented it as, and her socialite mother was embarrassed by being affiliated with Real Housewives Of Potomac. I presume Katie believed she would be favorably portrayed, and come across as an A-List socialite. (Her mom does run in serious circles on the DC scene and is most certainly legit. Not sure about Katie, however!).
Interesting time for Katie to announce her departure. Real Housewives Of Potomac has been filming since late-May, so production must have decided mid-way through to fire Katie. The only castmate she remotely gets along with is Ashley Darby, plus with all Katie’s stipulations about what portions of her life she’ll feature it seems like Bravo probably decided it wasn’t worth the hassle.
One or two new women will reportedly join the cast. Let’s hope they choose class women who legitimately represent the DC/Potomac social scene.
