During an appearance on Watch What Happens: Live, with Andy Cohen in May 2017, Kim was asked about the drama with Rose. Cohen pointed out that Kim had unfollowed Rose on social media. Kim said that she hadn’t worked with Rose for “maybe four years.”

Kim gave her reason as after she got with Kanye, she wanted a new look. “I wanted a new vibe. Kanye wanted to give me a makeover,” Kim said. Though she didn’t deny there’s beef there saying, “I just wanted the change, but I just recently heard that, so people have been asking me, and that’s not the reason, so you’d have to ask Khloe, and Kendall and Kylie and the girls.”

On her official website, Rose lists the Kardashian women as well as Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner among her “current and former clients.”
