RHONY's Brynn Whitfield Confronts Rumors of a Hotel Rendezvous With Shep Rose, Talks "Crush" on Southern Charm Star as He's Linked to Roanoke Woman

Brynn Whitfield is speaking out after rumors surfaced in which she was accused of potentially visiting a Charleston hotel with Southern Charm cast member Shep Rose.

After Shep, 43, shared and deleted a video of a dark-haired mystery woman on his Instagram Story, causing many to wonder if it was the Real Housewives of New York City star, Brynn, 36, addressed the report in a comment as Shep was linked to another woman entirely.

Following the sharing of the screenshot of Shep’s video shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram on August 9, an insider alleged that Shep is actually seeing someone else.

“Pretty sure it’s a girl from my town here in Roanoke. He was here [two] weeks ago for a golf tournament and has been back twice to visit said girl,” the source wrote.

Although many believed the woman in the photo was Brynn, with some citing her signature hair part, Brynn surfaced in Greece around the same time, sharing a photo of herself on a boat from Paros Island.

“It’s all Greek to me,” she wrote in the caption of her pic, in which she was seen smiling in a printed wrap dress.

On Tuesday, Shep’s Instagram Story began making its rounds on social media, with one Instagram account, Real Moms of Bravo, asking, “Do you think it’s her,” in regard to the RHONY cast member.

But in response to the post, Brynn said there was no truth to the report.

“Lol first of all I wouldn’t be caught dead in that outfit. [Second], I’m in Europe darling. [Third] the crush is a joke; I’m being silly,” she explained. “Not remotely serious but [definitely] plan on being best friends with all the [Southern Charm] guys, they seem like a hoot.”

In early July, Brynn expressed interest in Shep at her and her castmates’ RHONY premiere party.

“I think Shep’s a cutie. And I feel like I’m a commitment-phobe. He’s a commitment-phobe. So it would be a disaster,” Brynn told Hollywood Life. “It would be a short-term disaster. And Andy [Cohen] told me [he could help.]”

She then told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she felt he was “cute.”

And weeks later, on a more recent episode of WWHL, Brynn confirmed the two of them had been in touch, via DM.

“He did. He’s very sweet. He’s very smart. And it’s all PG,” she shared.

The Real Housewives of New York City season 14 airs Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo, and Southern Charm season nine premieres on Thursday, September 14, at 9/8c.
