Last week’s announcement of a mass exodus of Southern Charm stars is dredging up a lot. Naomie Olindo, Chelsea Meissner, and Cameran Eubanks all announced that they would not be returning next season. Since then, alums Landon Clements, Ashley Jacobs, and Thomas Ravenel have all made statements denouncing the show. And one name has been coming up a lot in the midst of it all. Kathryn Dennis. The show underdog has come a long way since her first season. She became a social outcast during her time with Thomas; slighted from Patricia Altschul’s fabulous dinner parties. Those kind of invites make or break you in Charleston. This is old news though. Why is Kathryn’s name coming up so much now? And does Kathryn have anything to do with the exiting cast falling out of love with their amazing reality TV gig?
It was Kathryn that was allegedly spreading rumors that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly had a mistress. According to the supposed mistress that is. And Naomie and Chelsea. Landon called Kathryn a, “bad apple that can ruin the whole bunch.” While Kathryn has become the Charm darling of late, it does call to question the power of post-production editing when so many cast members put out contradicting statements. Ashley said the cast enabled Kathryn, while Thomas called out the editing process. Was that a dig at Kathryn? Or does Thomas still want to be vindicated for the way he was “portrayed”?
Thomas is no stranger to random outbursts on social media. It was only a matter of time before he would post something that would have to be deleted immediately. But this inflammatory statement reveals that, for once, Kathryn may not be the root cause of Thomas’s misguided resentment. But with so many disgruntled castmates pointing the finger at Kathryn, it’s typical Thomas to be projecting onto someone else.
In a quickly-deleted post, Thomas wrote, “I don’t know if [Cameran Eubanks]’ husband cheated or not, but [who] would blame him considering her hero in life who she’d kill to emulate was that lying gold digging fame whore Patricia Altschul.”

Despite the cast members publicly taking each other down, the one true culprit in all of this seems to be post-production editing. In a response shared by People, Thomas wrote, “the truth is never terrible. Cameran and Patricia are terrible. Anyone who falls for Bravo editing BS has a very small brain.” Divide and conquer, that’s how it’s done.
TELL US- WHY DO YOU THINK THOMAS IS CALLING CAMERAN AND PATRICIA TERRIBLE? WHY DO YOU THINK SO MANY CAST MEMBERS LEFT THE SHOW?
