It’s the year 2021, and we’re somehow still caught up in the drama between Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel, even though he isn’t even on Southern Charm anymore. Their relationship has been a mess since Season 1, but took an especially dark turn in the past year.
Season 7 kicked off with the two apparently living together, which shocked and confused us all. It seemed like they might try to rekindle their flame for the 500th time until Thomas did was Thomas does, and secretly had a baby with another woman. Since then, the custody battle over their two kids has gotten ugly. Thomas alleged that his son, St. Julien Rembert Ravenel was “formerly diagnosed with FAS due to Kathryn’s excessive drug and alcohol consumption while he was in utero,” according to court papers. He also claims Kathryn, who has publicly struggled with drugs and alcohol, uses cocaine and leaves it accessible to their kids.
As of now, Thomas has full custody of his kids with Kathryn, which is pretty bad considering his history of sexual assault allegations. But in a since-deleted tweet, he insinuated that Kathryn will never have full custody of their kids. Even if he’s out of the picture.
The Instagram account Bravo Snark Side captured a screenshot of Thomas’s tweets, where he continues to shame Kathryn any chance he gets. “I have been told in no uncertain terms that if something were to happen to me or if false allegations were brought against me into a desperate situation that I’d not lose the kids to Kathryn but rather they’d go to DSS and into Foster Care,” he said.
A fan asked if he was implying that Kathryn is “that negligent” that their kids would go into the foster care system. “Infer what you will,” Thomas responded. “The people who do this for a living have informed me of this.” So those “people” must be his legal team. Given his track record, they’re probably trying to make sure Thomas stays out of trouble for once, for the sake of his kids.
It’s clear that Kathryn is far from a saint, but Thomas has continued to torture her since the start of their relationship. Despite not having custody, she’s starting a life with her new boo Chleb Ravenell. Outside of her legal issues with Thomas, she also was sued by an image consultant last year for failing to pay a bill.
Maybe that’s why she recently crafted some tweets of her own about dealing with lawyers, inferring she was being manipulated by the system. While Thomas and Kathryn are truly full of controversy, their story does make for fascinating and honest reality TV. At least stirring the pot for a storyline hasn’t really been an issue with the OGs, unlike Shep Rose.
