"It's even weird to think about dating," Brittany told Us Weekly. "But I need someone who has their stuff together, who is confident and respectful, and makes me laugh. It's going to be difficult because I am so in the public eye."

During a trip to New York earlier this month, Brittany appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and met up with Summer House's Carl Radke. As it just so happens, Carl is single after splitting from ex-fiancé, Lindsay Hubbard last year, is used to being in the public eye, and is pretty funny. But don't hold your breath for the potential couple just yet.

During her trip to NYC, Brittany went to watch Vanderpump RulesAriana Madix perform in the Broadway musical, Chicago. It was there where she met up with Carl and they snapped a picture with Ariana and friends backstage. But, after Jax implored more about their friendship during an April 11 episode of their podcast, When Reality Hits with Brittany and Jax, Brittany insisted that nothing happened between them. 

"There's a rumor that you guys had some kind of like, flirtatious thing going on," Jax said.

Rest assured, nothing happened between them. "He was nice to me, I was nice to him," Brittany said. "We said maybe five words to each other at the show....He was very nice, but no."
