Who Is RHOA Season 15 Friend Courtney R. Rhodes?

According to her official bio, Courtney is a “successful brand marketing expert and jewelry designer.” Per her Instagram feed, Courtney operates the jewelry brand Courtney Racquel, which focuses on “statement jewelry for spirited influencers.” She’s also the co-founder of C&D The Agency. 

Courtney made her RHOA debut on the Season 15 premiere when she met up with Shereé and Sanya at Chateau Shereé. In an interview on the episode, Shereé explained that she knows Courtney through their kids.

“Courtney is a girlfriend of mine. Our kids went to school together — her daughter is right between Kairo and Kaleigh,” Shereé said.

“Courtney is a Capricorn, she is no-nonsense. She’s not a fake person,” Shereé added about her friend. “She’s just an all-around girls’ girl.”

Courtney Has an Interesting Connection to Ralph Pittman

In addition to being friendly with Shereé, Courtney has another interesting tie to the RHOA cast. Her bio notes that “she finds out her long-lost cousin is Drew’s husband, Ralph [Pittman].” (Drew and Ralph split in early 2023.)

She Instantly Clashed with Kandi Burruss

It didn’t take long for the Season 15 friend to get involved in some drama with the other ladies. On the premiere, Courtney told Shereé and Sanya that she had been in “similar circles” with Kandi, and that she heard Kandi “was calling around asking some people about me.”

Kandi, meanwhile, had heard that Courtney said the two were friends, and a miscommunication ensued. 

“Why would I say we’re friends?” Courtney asked Kandi.

“My feelings were definitely hurt,” she later added. “I have nothing but positive things to say about her, and I was pretty disappointed. I don’t have to clout chase.”

“I never said you clout chased!” Kandi said, as the ladies continued to argue. The episode concluded before Kandi and Courtney could resolve their issues, so fans will have to stay tuned to find out if the two will be able to get along.
