From opening up about her marriage to sharing her experience with the Mormon church, Whitney Rose has revealed plenty of the most important details of her personal life throughout The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 1. During Part 3 of the reunion, Whitney provided an emotional update on her relationship with her father and his sobriety journey that was shared this season.
When asked how her father, Steve, is doing now, Whitney surprised Andy Cohen with her response: “Currently, I don’t know. He’s not speaking to me.”
“We actually, after the show, had built back a very beautiful foundation, and we were communicating very well,” she continued. “He came and saw me for my birthday, and I never saw him again. He’s disappeared, he won’t respond to me. I saw this going very differently. I saw us watching together and celebrating. There’s so many opportunities for him to change his life, especially now with this platform. I still want people to root for him. That’s what he needs. He needs love.”
Whitney then went on to explain that, although she has not yet received a response from her father, she has attempted to contact him quite frequently. “I text him probably every other day. Or at least every fifth day,” she explained, adding that the text messages do go through as delivered.
