Bravotv.com: Do you regret missing the whiskey tasting?
Katie Rost: I had to keep my priorities straight. And though the whiskey tasting looked like a blast and I was impressed with the ladies ability to knock em back with Ashley...I can't handle hard liquor at all, so I probably avoided a mean hangover by skipping the whiskey and staying on purpose to socialize to grow my network for the Rost Foundation.
Bravotv.com: What are the keys to schmoozing at a philanthropy event?
KR: Andrew and I made some great connections at the Washingtonian Magazine event and when I do events this year I know I can count on some heavy hitters to have my back. To socialize with an agenda you have to have a pitch and purpose. I went in knowing who I needed to target. You are only as strong as the network that believes in you and supports you. Your net worth is determined by your network.
Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind when Andrew said that you two would’ve already been engaged and married if you hadn’t previously brought it up?
KR: Andrew is a bullsh**ter. I am not thirsty, though I did seem to be enjoying my wine. Hey, I expect the best and I let my values be known. I will not lower my standards. I believe in marriage. My grandma had a great saying that sums it up...Piss or get off the pot!
