Real Housewives Of Potomac Alum Katie Rost Is Working A Minimum Wage Job After Finishing A Stint In Rehab 

One of us! One of us! Believe it or not, Katie Rost from The Real Housewives of Potomac is just like us! 

Late last week, Katie made a post to Instagram and revealed to her fans and followers she landed a minimum-wage job after her time in rehab. From the bottom of my heart, you go girl! 

Page Six shared the announcement, which included a selfie of Katie at her new job. Along with the pic, Katie wrote, “Jesus Christ, I started working, like a real job. I just got off of an 8 hour shift working minimum wage. I feel like a real person instead of a reality tv person; I made $14 an hour, … Keepin it real.” 

Katie’s work-life selfie was taken in the vitamin aisle of a store. She’s dressed super casual, in a hat, quarter-zip, and beaded jewelry. 

In the comments of her post, Katie revealed her new gig is at the Bethesda Co-op. It’s an organic market in Cabin John, Maryland. She said, “we are kinda granola and hippie but kinda awesome. Way better than Whole Foods!” She even invited a fan to stop by for a visit in the comments and wrote, “Come say hi.”

Katie’s followers and fans gave her nothing but love in the comments. We love an authentic Housewife, former or current, after all. Personally, I would much rather watch Katie work an 8-hour shift at a cash register than one more group event at a walk-in Botox clinic.

One fan commented, “I’m impressed. Not only does this require humility, which is probably one of the most important and best qualities a human can have. What you’re doing is also important.” A second person added, “Gotta pay the bills. Nothing wrong with that.” 

Yet another follower gassed Katie up saying, “We are rooting for you Katie! This is awesome. This is what healing looks like! And you make it look GREAT! We are SO proud of you!” 

Katie began her 30-day rehab program in October of 2022. She was admitted to “kick alcohol and Adderall in a medical setting.” At the time, Katie shared with her followers that she had been taking Adderall since the age of 12 to treat her diagnosed attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

“There is no shame in admitting you have been prescribed things and those things are now hurting you physically,” Katie wrote in a since-deleted social-media post, per Page Six.

Mazel to Katie for being relatable, unpredictable, and genuine all at the same time. Keep doing you, boo!
