Thomas Ravenel always focused on the appearance of being a southern gentleman. It worked in the short term. He certainly looked the part when cast on Southern Charm. But despite the family name, money, exquisite plantation, and love of polo, Thomas could only hold up the facade for so long.
Now, Thomas is courting controversy yet again. In a small way, because avoiding conflict is not this man’s forte. It simply wasn’t enough to be sent to jail for cocaine distribution and be accused of assault multiple times. Now Thomas is pushing PC boundaries by making insensitive remarks on social media. Again. No, he’s not fat-shaming anyone this time. And what is the subject du jour? Coronavirus!
We all know that social distancing is the go-to move during this Coronavirus outbreak. That’s why lots of Instagram users chastised Austen Kroll when he posted a photo with Craig Conover, Kathryn Dennis, and Madison LeCroy at a crowded bar.
Commenters ripped into Austen for the decision during this chaotic time. But, some of them went way too far, actually sending death threats to the Southern Charm cast members.
The world is in a panic right now thanks to the Coronavirus outbreak. Many people are preaching social distancing, self-quarantining, and staying on top of the handwashing. In contrast, there are some people who hung out in big crowds at bars and restaurants. Zero social distancing and a lot of germ sharing.
Southern Charm star Austen Kroll caused an uproar on Instagram last night when he posted a photo of himself, (on-again, off-again girlfriend) Madison LeCroy, Craig Conover, and Kathryn Dennis eating crab legs at a bar in Charleston.
Kathryn Dennis has been through a lot. Her first season on Southern Charm made her out to be a boy crazy villain who couldn’t get along with anyone on the show but then-boyfriend Thomas Ravenel. She fought with anyone who would dare to come between them or really, even talk about them. It seemed like she was the one constantly thriving in the fighting and the dysfunction of her relationship. Then she got unexpectedly pregnant (twice). She went to rehab and lost custody of her kids. When she came back to Charleston and the show, she was a social pariah to all but castmate Craig Conover (and who doesn’t love Craig?). Things were not looking good for Kathryn and many fans wondered why she was even on the show.
Since then, Kathryn has bounced back and had a very strong redemption story. She stopped being in denial about how Thomas was actually a good person and came clean about what a crappy partner he was. She worked hard to make friends again and gain back time with her kids. When Thomas’ new girlfriend Ashley Jacobs (who let’s face it, made Kathryn look like a saint) came for her about her role as a mother, the cast rallied around Kathryn hard. And it made sense. Gone was the over-dramatic brat who couldn’t get out of her way and out came the young woman who was more insightful and focused on making her life better. Sure, she had some blips of bad judgment, but she was able to steer clear of the relationships, drugs, and alcohol that had gotten her into so much trouble.
The new Vanderpump Rules cast members, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni criticized Scheana Marie for being “boy crazy.” They’re not the only people gossiping about Schean’s love life though. Then again, this is reality TV, this comes with the territory.
This past summer there were rumors about Scheana hooking up with Shep Rose at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding in Kentucky. There has also been a long-time rumor about Scheana and Carl Radke from Summer House being more than just friends. They’ve copped to making out and hanging out, but it doesn’t seem like they ever actually dated. Scheana cleared up th rumors about her love life in the Bravo universe.
As you might know, Southern Charm is FINALLY filming again after a long delay. And we all know what that means! Time to play another round of, “Are They Banging?”, courtesy of Kathryn Dennis and her baby daddy, Thomas Ravenel.
On this week’s episode of ATB?, we once again reflect on a curious Instagram photo posted by Miss Kathryn. Back on January 12, Kathryn shared a glam shot from a party. Also pictured, T-Rav,in very close proximity to Kathryn’s body. It certainly raised eyebrows that the two were more on again than off again. After brief speculation the couple had reunited like Ashford & Simpson, the streets are talking once more. Is this just clever subterfuge and trickery to get people talking or have the venomous twosome decided to give love another shot?
Let’s face it. Season 6 of Southern Charm was not the greatest. There seemed to be a spark missing from the series. It is almost as if some of the charm of the show disappeared. Thomas Ravenel departed after Season 5 in a cloud of ugly legal issues. Kathryn Dennis was more private, possibly due to her legal wrangling with Thomas over custody of their children. Shep Rose appeared to have turned into that angry old man who lives on the corner.
Rumors about whether or not the show would return started cropping up in the fall, as Southern Charm has traditionally filmed during that time of year. Austen Kroll confirmed last November that the show had not yet started filming. In the same month, Craig Conover hinted Southern Charm would be returning, but offered little in the way of details. Now, there is some dish to share about the future of our charmers.
Are the cameras rolling for Southern Charm Season 7? God, I hope so. I just need to know what’s really going on with Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel. No, I don’t want Thomas back on my TV screen, but I would like some explanation from Kathryn about their kids-free hangouts.
How did they go from solely seeing each other in the courtroom to hanging out and posting photos together? That’s great for co-parenting, but is that all? Is there more between the two exes? Thomas’s infamous ex Ashley Jacobs shared her thoughts on the possible rekindling.
