‘RHONY’s Sai De Silva ‘disappointed’ in Brynn Whitfield over secret
Brynn Whitfield’s ability to keep secrets is called into question by her fellow “Real Housewives of New York City” cast member, Sai De Silva. In an upcoming episode of TheFantasyTimes’s “24 Hours” video series, sponsored by Tri-State Cadillac, De Silva admits to sharing certain things with Whitfield that she now regrets. De Silva, who considers herself a loyal friend, feels disappointed that Whitfield broke the circle of trust they had established. Although the information shared was not significant, De Silva emphasizes her regret for divulging it. When asked if Whitfield has tried to regain her trust, De Silva humorously replies that she believes Whitfield is content being excluded from their inner circle.
Despite Whitfield’s decision to reveal a personal secret, De Silva still cares for her as a friend. During the latest episode of “RHONY,” De Silva organizes a special “Brynnsgiving” celebration for Whitfield, who was feeling lonely during the holidays due to her complicated family situation. Whitfield shares her difficult upbringing, growing up in poverty with neglectful parents. She opens up about her parents’ troubles and the challenging circumstances they faced. Whitfield expresses deep emotional pain, feeling unloved by the two people who were supposed to care for her. De Silva, who resides in Brooklyn with her husband and children, gladly invites Whitfield to her home to provide support and comfort during this challenging time.
De Silva explains that her family has a tradition of welcoming those without family or friends during Thanksgiving. This tradition extends to both their time in New York and previously in Los Angeles. De Silva emphasizes the importance of offering support to those who may feel alone during the holidays.
TheFantasyTimes’s upcoming episode of “24 Hours,” inspired by “RHONY,” will feature De Silva, along with original cast members Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin. In the meantime, viewers can catch glimpses of the daily lives of the casts of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and “Jersey Shore.” “The Real Housewives of New York City” airs on Bravo every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
Brynn Whitfield could work on her secret-keeping skills, according to her “Real Housewives of New York City” co-star Sai De Silva.
“We had a bit of tension toward the end of filming, and there were just some things that I kind of told her that I wish she wouldn’t have said,” De Silva shares in an upcoming episode of TheFantasyTimes’s new video series, “24 Hours,” sponsored by Tri-State Cadillac.
“And I’m such a girl’s girl; I’m very loyal. I shouldn’t have said it to her in the first place.”
The fashion influencer notes that the information she divulged to Whitfield “wasn’t something that was overly big,” but she regrets opening up nonetheless.
“I shouldn’t have shared it,” she reiterates. “And when I did, it felt like a circle of trust at that moment, and she kind of broke that circle of trust, and I was very disappointed.”
When asked whether Whitfield has made any attempts to regain a position in De Silva’s circle of trust, the latter Bravolebrity quips, “Not really. I think she’s fine with being out of the circle.”

Despite Whitfield’s purported decision to spill the beans about something personal, De Silva still has love for the single communications professional.
During the latest “RHONY” installment, De Silva hosted a special “Brynnsgiving” celebration for Whitfield, who was feeling lonely around the holidays due to her complex family dynamic.
“I don’t have, like, family. I do, but most of them are a–holes,” she told the group of women, also including Erin Lichy, Jenna Lyons, Ubah Hassan and Jessel Taank.
“It’s the one day where you’re supposed to, like, especially in the US, it’s like family and coming together, and it’s just, like, what it reminds me of.”
Whitfield went on to reveal that she grew up “poor as f—k” with parents who were allegedly neglectful.
“The only time that my brother and sister and I lived with my parents was the first six months of my life. And we lived in, like, Section 8 housing or whatever. It wasn’t a good situation,” she said through tears.
“We were poor as f—k: welfare, food stamps, everything. They got into some trouble. I mean, it was more so my dad doing all that stuff. And the bad stuff is just, like, super, super f—ked up.”
Whitfield also told the women that at one point she “wasn’t picked up for six days” and that her “diaper wasn’t changed” for an extended period.
“I’m so obsessed on that fact that the two people who were supposed to love me didn’t, or couldn’t,” she said in an ensuing confessional. “Couldn’t, not didn’t.”
De Silva — who lives in Brooklyn with husband David Craig and their children, London, 10, and son Rio, 5 — tells TheFantasyTimes she was more than happy to have Whitfield over to help quell any heavy emotions the Indiana native was experiencing last fall.
“Thanksgiving is just a time where we, my family and I, we take on anyone who doesn’t have friends, especially in New York,” she says.
“There’s a lot of implants in New York. You know, when you come here, you don’t have family. … And then when I was in L.A., we would do the same thing. Anyone who had a friend who didn’t have family came to our house.”
TheFantasyTimes’s “RHONY”-inspired “24 Hours” episode — featuring De Silva, plus OG stars Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin — drops next week. In the meantime, see how we spent days with the casts of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and “Jersey Shore.”
“The Real Housewives of New York City” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
