Shep Rose: I Want to Apologize to Her and to Anyone Who Is Offended

The #SouthernCharm star apologizes for his "insensitive" comment about his friend, Bailey.

On the episode that airs tonight, a comment makes it to air that I deeply regret and am dismayed by. It is in reference to my great friend Bailey who is on the show painting me and generally just being awesome and lovely. My respect and love for her as a friend is immeasurable. So, when I saw in the episode that the phrase "DTF" was used in reference to her, my heart sank. You see, it was a long interview and I try to be funny and irreverent, and sometimes I say things that cross the line. Unfortunately, this insensitive and completely inaccurate comment is one of these times. It was a poor and clumsy attempt at humor.

I've spoken with her about it and thankfully she has forgiven me, but it will still be something that wears heavily on me because speaking about women in such a flippant and cavalier way is something that I never, ever want to be associated with. So I want to apologize to her and to anyone who is offended. She is an outstanding person who makes me smile at the thought of her, and I hope we will be lifelong friends. I've already promised to take her on a nice vacation somewhere to make up for any embarrassment that I've caused. (I'm thinking a summer mountain excursion.)

Other than this unfortunate comment, I think the episode is very good and has some really funny and lovely moments. But I had to get this off my chest and let everyone who reads this know that that one comment is completely false and super uncool.

All the Best,

Shep Rose
