Well this is a first! Someone other than Thomas Ravenel is exiting the hot mess express otherwise known as Southern Charm. And, in a somewhat ironic twist of events, the controversial cast member who constantly threatens to quit (but never does) is confirming the hit show’s fourth season.

Y’all know what that means… I’m going to be fan girling all the cast’s favorite hot spots here in the Holy City (and hopefully eating some delicious food while I’m at it!) as the crew begins filming for the upcoming season. Cash in some of your mailbox money and pour yourself a dressing drink – they are back! Well, most of them, at least.

Cooper Ray announced on his Twitter that he won’t be returning for another go-round. The purveyor of lovely ascots and snark was shunned by his peers (led by former friend Patricia Altschul) after he befriended Kathryn Dennis. Kathryn’s volatile relationship with T-Rav has been front and center since the show began, and three seasons – and two children – later, its drama is still the epicenter of Southern Charm.

Sharing a picture of the cast with the phrase “Ciao for now” covering their faces, Cooper tweeted, “It’s been fun and it’s been real. But.. You know the rest. Thus, I have retired from @Bravotv #SouthernCharm”

While some will speculate that Cooper wasn’t asked to return, I’d venture he’s leaving on his own terms in hopes of pursuing other opportunities. I’m sure we’ll hear more from him in the upcoming months, as he’s never been one to stay mum when there is shade to be thrown. Who is going to hang out with Kathryn and remind Thomas that threatening and insulting guests is unbecoming?

That remains to be seen, as does Kathryn‘s return. The troubled reality star is mom to two-year-old Kensie and 10-month-old Saint Julien with on-off-way-off beau T-Rav. According to Fitz News, Kathryn just returned from a rehab stint in California and has yet to commit to another season.

Oddly enough, Thomas, who takes to social media about once a week to trash talk the show and denounce any future involvement with it, has confirmed the new season in a voicemail to a mystery lady. The site is still trying to obtain permission to publish said voicemail, but asserts the audio has T-Rav claiming the filming will last for several months.

He goes on to say that he needs to lose his “beer gut,” asking the phone call’s recipient for assistance in getting into shape and complimenting her “phenomenal physique.” Oh T-Rav. Some things never change. You are never going to shed your playboy ways, and the ladies who turn your head are never going to quit exploiting your advances for a quick fifteen seconds. All aboard!
