Brynn Whitfield Says Watching RHONY Made Her Realize *This* About Jenna Lyons: "Clueless Moment"

The Real Housewives of New York City newbie discussed her flirtation with Jenna Lyons during BravoCon 2023. 

By Cynthia Robinson

Brynn Whitfield loves to flirt, and when it came to Season 14 of The Real Housewives of New York City, she seemingly had her sights set on her castmates: Jenna Lyons. During the RHONY reunion, however, Jenna shared she didn't think Brynn was being serious when it came to her flirtations. But it turns out, that might not be the case.

Following the reunion, the ladies gathered in Las Vegas for BravoCon 2023 to dish on the most recent season. For the panel, "Let's Hear It for (New) New York," moderator Matt Rogers questioned Brynn about what he perceived to be a "legitimate vibe" between the two of them.

After an uproarious reaction from the crowd, Brynn further clarified: "I have to be respectful because she's in a relationship, but if I wanted to disrespect her relationship — she's a hot babe. She has everything I want. Like, I'm 37... beggars can't be choosers. I want to have kids, I want it. You know she's got everything. She's got the chic loft. She's got the looks ... I could be the cool stepmom. [Her son] doesn't hate me, he loves me."

Brynn continued: "Look, I was joking around during the season because Jenna is very shy [and] coy and I love making people blush and it's very easy to make Jenna blush. But then watching it back I was like, wait, you know, it was like a Clueless moment. It was like 'Maybe I'm in love with Josh!' but it was Jenna!  Usually, I text her you know, whatever, we're friends, but then [...] I wanted to text her but then I got [shy]." 

Is Jenna Lyons single?

Unfortunately for Brynn, Jenna seems to be utterly smitten with her new love, photographer Cass Bird

The couple told The Cut they met at a mutual friend's place in Brooklyn between Season 14 being filmed and it starting to air in July 2023.

“It was laugh-y and silly,” Cass told The Cut about first meeting Jenna. “We hung out and were like, ‘Yep.’ She is an actual mutant. Which I know you know already.”

Additionally, the pair seemed to tease an engagement in late September after Jenna took to Instagram to share a black and white photo of her and Cass. What especially caught followers’ attention — beyond the couple’s chemistry— was the big, beautiful rock on Jenna’s left ring finger.

Naturally, Andy Cohen had to ask her about it when she appeared on the October 15 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

“I just really … so, basically, here is the story. My girlfriend, who I adore, kept telling me that I had to button my shirt. And I said, ‘If you want me to button my shirt, you have to put a ring on it,'” Jenna said.

But when Andy asked her to clarify, she simply said, “I’m very happy.”
