Since picking herself up and dusting herself off last season on Southern Charm,Kathryn Dennis has made some big changes, including working outside of Bravo for Gwynn’s department store in Mt. Pleasant, SC, particularly while not shooting or promoting Southern Charm. But a rumor circulated earlier this year that Kathryn was not professional in her position at Gwynn’s and left the management in the lurch, not showing up for work.
Kathryn has often mentioned on her Instagram page how much she likes fashion, and is looking to balance that kind of work with her time on Southern Charm. But both Kathryn and Gwynn’s Vice President, Madison Simon are telling a different story, calling the rumors ridiculous.
It’s become pretty obvious that on Southern Charm Savannahthe person in the position of odd woman out is Ashley Borders. Don’t feel too sorry for her, though! She has a pretty good outlook on the first season of the newest Southern Charm, even if things seems rough with her marriage under the microscope, and questions about what she really does for a living.
Throw in there her cast mates suggesting that she doesn’t have a great relationship with the truth, and Ashley does seem to be painted into a corner as the Kathryn Dennis of Savannah. But through it all, Ashley explains that she is a straight shooter who says she is still grateful to be able to have this new experience to be on Southern Charm Savannah with people she has known since childhood.
Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennishas obviously had the worst possible year ever, with her break up with co-star Thomas Ravenel, and her failed drug test that took place one year ago, but what has made it worse is all of the rumors that since she returned from rehab in Malibu just before Labor Day that insist she has failed drug tests. Up until now Kathryn took her tests each week, and every month, and passed, and results were sent to the court, and those involved in the case had access. She has gone as far as to also purchase a breathalyzer to prove that she has also been avoiding alcohol.
But Kathryn has had to learn a tough lesson, which is that there are some people out there who will make things up, whether it’s to be hurtful, or just for attention (or maybe because they were not asked to return to Southern Charm this season). Either way, Kathryn has spent months turning the other cheek, and not responding on advice of counsel.
Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis says that she is so baffled by many recent headlines, but she says that the craziest thing she has read lately about herself involves Landon Clements’story that they are not friends because Kathryn stole clothing from a friend of Landon’s and had to be presented with legal papers to cough up the designer duds.
“When I read the story about Landon not being my friend because I reportedly stole clothing from a friend of hers, I thought, what the heck is she talking about? Landon has never introduced me to a friend of hers, let alone someone who is a designer who gave me clothes. Where is she getting this from?”
On tonight’s Southern Charm, Kathryn Dennis got a chance to sit down with Craig Conoverto explain the changes in her custody arrangement. Up until now, fans have heard ad nauseam that Thomas has full custody, and Kathryn has no access to Kensie (Kensington Calhoun Ravenel) and Saint (St. Julien Rembert Ravenel). But tonight, we learned that all of that changed back in the early fall, despite quotes in the press to the contrary about Kathryn not having any custody of the children.
And even Thomas admitted, albeit just to Whitney Sudler-Smith, that Kathryn indeed had passed her test, and was seeing the kids once again. But for all of his claims that he wants Kathryn back in the lives of the kids, it sure doesn’t seem that way. Episode one of Southern Charm, season 4 featured Thomas Ravenel telling everyone that Kathryn was refusing to take a drug test because she knew she would fail, yet when she passes, and gets the kids back, he only tells Whitney, who seems as if he could care less about Kathryn and the kids. Truthfully, Whitney seems as if he would rather not be on Southern Charm at all.
In the video, Craig is alarmed that when his nanny shows up at a polo match with Kensie and Saint, Thomas doesn’t acknowledge their presence to say hello, despite Kensie yelling for “daddy.” Craig suggests that Thomas go over to give her a kiss, but he declines. Craig then asks the others at the polo match if they think it’s odd the way Thomas Ravenel seems to blow off his kids, and there is a comment by Landonthat perhaps it’s a southern-northern difference in parenting styles.
While season four of Southern Charm has been rather tame on screen, in the press and on social media things have been rather dramatic. While Kathryn Dennis has done her best to stay out of the fray and not comment on the firestorm, certain things have crossed the line, and she has agreed to sit down and answer some questions, on the record.
Amy F.: Hey Kathryn, I first want to ask you if there is anything off limits? Is there anything you can’t, or won’t talk about?
Kathryn Dennis: I’m not interested in naming names when it comes to those who have gone out of their way to smear me, because I don’t want to give them any press, but it’s pretty obvious who they are, but I’d like to get everything out there, so fire away!
Amy: You’ve obviously seen some of the articles and blogs saying that you are partying, using, unstable, and raging. Is there any truth to any of this? How often do you test, and does the court and/or Thomas Ravenel have access to these test results?
Kathryn: The rumors around town about partying are ridiculous. I have cut myself off from all of those people from when this all hit the fan last May. I fully admit it, I screwed up, but heading off to rehab helped me make a clean break. Ask any bar around town, and they will tell you they haven’t seen me. This is going to be public record soon, and yes, the court and Thomas have seen that I test regularly, and have not failed. The initial source is easy to guess, like in Harry Potter, “he who shall not be named!” Soon, all of the tests and more will be part of the public record, and if certain people have any class, they will be apologizing, because to say those things like that when it’s not true, is so wrong.
Episode three of Southern Charm, season four has now aired, and some fans are disappointed about the amount of screen time that Kathryn Dennis has gotten so far, and it’s starting to look like a repeat of last season, where the bulk of the cast didn’t film with her. But it’s not just fans of Southern Charm that are wondering what’s up, Kathryn is not pleased either.
Kathryn says she is puzzled as to what she was shown in episode one of Southern Charm walking into take a drug test, and literally, the only words she uttered where “I’m Kathryn Dennis, and I’m here for a drug test.” Then, in episode two, Kathryn is seen dropping by Danni’s house to again, talk about drug tests, and then season three, she is again, stopping into an office, this time to chat about getting back into modeling, only to be asked about whether or not her children want to model.
