Remember when I said I just like to think of what’s going on with the Southern Charm stars as the show airs instead of their present day antics? This post is precisely why (well part of it at least). There is actual good news and rumored bad news with the Bravo’s volatile couple.
Thomas Ravenel took Kathryn Dennis, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his two young children, to family court last week (with a hearing on the merits scheduled for June 27th), and while we don’t know what happened during the motion hearing, we do know that Thomas is posting pictures with his daughter for the first time in months. That’s good news, right?
For all of you who have speculated (on both sides) as to why Thomas Ravenel hasn’t taken Kathryn Dennis to court for custody of their two children (or, on the flip side, why Kathryn hasn’t sought financial support through a legal avenue), it’s all starting today. Yup. The estranged couple will face off in family court at a temporary hearing on June 27, but this afternoon, the judge will hear a motion to seal the case.
I try really, really (reallyreallyreally) hard when I recap Southern Charm to focus on the episode even though we’re watching events that took place several months ago. Drowning out what’s happening with these two in the here and now is just too tragic when I think of those precious babies. The pair have two year old daughter Kensington Calhoun and seven month old son St. Julien Rembert, and while I’m sure they have good hearts and good intentions (sometimes), neither seem to be skilled at being the bigger person.
Did you expect them to quit their public bickering? Surely not! In case you missed it, Kathryn Dennis has been hurling Twitter insults at Thomas Ravenel, and T-Rav is returning the favor by accusing her of keeping him from the pair’s two very young children.
As the two publicly spar over parenthood and partying, it has Southern Charm’s collective fan base waiting in anticipation for the show’s third season. After his Godzilla versus Jesus comparison, Thomas is expanding on his response to Kathryn’s allegations that he’s an absent father who doesn’t pay child support. His side of the story? It’s all Kathryn’s fault, naturally!
