Former full-time “Real Housewives” star Katie Rost revealed that she has relapsed after going to rehab. Rost, who appeared as a full-time star on season 1 of the Potomac franchise and has appeared on and off in various roles since, previously revealed that she was entering a rehab facility to help her with an addition to “alcohol and Adderall.”
She has since completed the program and appeared to be on the right track before having a setback.
“I relapsed, I had decided to abstain from drugs, white claw and Adderall, and sex , tonight I failed in one of those. I did what I should went immediately to a meeting. But yup, starting over: day 1 #recovery,” Rost tweeted on February 8, 2023.
