Without a doubt, the hardest obstacle for Kathryn was losing custody of the two kids she has with Thomas Ravenel. I will never forget that scene with their daughter crying in the parking lot because she wanted more time with Kathryn.
Kathryn opened up about losing custody in an interview with People. The mother of two admitted, “It’s absolutely not something I thought I’d ever face.” She continued, “It all happened so fast. Losing my kids, I just remember falling on my knees and breaking down like every single day.”
Kathryn admitted, “when you don’t have your children with you and they’re at such fragile, young ages, it just feels like part of you is not there.” And on top of all that, her rise and fall has played out in a very public manner.
Kathryn realized, “Time is very cherished, and I try and fill it with things that are meaningful and bond with them.” She confessed that she views their quality time in a different way. She explained, “You look at it differently when you realize it can be taken away.”
Kathryn kept it real. She described how she felt in a very vivid manner: “Your heart is walking around outside of you and you can’t see them or talk to them. It’s out of your control but these are two humans who you gave life to. It’s just so unnatural and I can’t describe it in any other way.”
She added, “It’s probably one of the hardest things you can go through in life in general. It’s hard spiritually, mentally, and physically; you can just become drained by the guilt and shame.”
Thankfully things seem to be going better for Kathryn and it seems like she and Thomas have a better handle on co-parenting.
