Shep Rose shared a video on his Instagram Story on Tuesday in which a dark-haired woman was seen in the background, quickly raising questions as to who the mystery girl may be.

Just days after Brynn Whitfield, 36, appeared on Watch What Happens Live, where the Real Housewives of New York City star confirmed the Southern Charm cast member reached out to her, via DM, after she expressed her romantic interest in him on several occasions, Shep, 43, posted and deleted the clip.

In a post shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram on August 8, the fan page announced, “Shep deleted the video lol,” as they also posted a couple of comments from their followers.

“It’s for sure her! It’s her hair 100 [percent]!” one person wrote in regard to the RHONY newbie.

“He deleted it!” another replied.

Southern Charm Shep Rose Deletes IG Story Amid Brynn Whitfield Questions

As Bravo fans will recall, Brynn first dished on her crush on Shep last month when she appeared on WWHL with the entire cast of RHONY.

“I think Shep’s cute. It takes one commitment-phobe to know another commitment-phobe,” she noted, asking host Andy Cohen, 55, “What’s he like in real life?”

Then, after Andy confirmed Shep is “exactly as he appears” on Southern Charm, Brynn said that is “perfect.”

“I like Southern Charm. I’m from Indiana. Midwest and the down south, we play it dirty,” she added.

And after the WWHL clip was shared on Instagram, Shep reacted to her advances.

“That’s certainly nice to hear. Thanks for thinking of me Brynn,” he told her. “[But] Andy could have been a little more enthusiastic about her brave (and accurate) proclamation … Perhaps he knows too much. This poses a problem.”

Despite his apparent hesitancy about the potential romance, Brynn confirmed he reached out to her while participating in her second WWHL appearance earlier this week.

After joking that she’s “committed to Shep” on Sunday’s episode, Brynn revealed, “He did [DM me]. He’s very sweet. He’s very smart. And it’s all PG.”

As for Shep’s posted and deleted Instagram Story video, that was shared from the Zero George Street hotel in Charleston, South Carolina. And while it is no longer visible on Shep’s page, Bravo Breaking News offered a screenshot on their Instagram page.
