I just want to begin by saying even for the most jaded reality television drama lovers, this one is sketchy. Southern Charm star, Kathryn Dennis has been accused of many things. She had a problem with substance abuse and went to rehab. She has been accused of being an unfit mother by Thomas Ravenel. The courts disagreed and she was awarded 50/50 custody of her kids after a lengthy battle. The father of her children also accused Kathryn of conspiring against him with the victim of a now-settled sexual assault charge. Thomas admitted guilt and was forced to pay a fine.
Throughout all of these accusations, Kathryn has remained relatively low key. She lost her mother to cancer over the summer and ended her relationship with former boyfriend, Hunter Price. Aside from a couple of car accidents, which didn’t exactly help her reformed image, Kathryn generally stays under the radar. Until now, that is. In a very twisted turn of events, new allegations were lodged against Kathryn. But by all accounts, it has no chance of sticking.
Southern Charm viewers “met” Kathryn Dennis’s boyfriend Hunter Price during the Season 6 finale episode. We didn’t see too much of him, but we did get to witness Kathryn awkwardly suggest that her former flame Whitney Sudler-Smith and Hunter should play instruments together sometime. That is something I would like to see, for the awkwardness, not the music, of course.
Southern Charm fans who keep track of the show’s stars in between seasons were not surprised by Hunter’s appearance. Kathryn revealed that they were dating back in January. Well, now, they’re broken up allegedly. Not that this is something that Kathryn has confirmed herself. Actually, she recently instigated rumors of the exact opposite variety.
Our summer with the folks of Southern Charm has come to a bittersweet end. Sweet because it’s over, and bitter because the story line centered around a withering bromance and toxic romance of an Austen Kroll triangle. The wayward beer enthusiast spent the season entangled in a twisted web, pulled between his snobby, elitist wing man and shrill, roid-raging girlfriend. It wasn’t the stuff of Bravo dreams…that’s for sure!
Andy Cohen welcomes Danni Baird to the sofa before Austen continues to lecture Kathryn Dennis about her admittedly odd Watch What Happens Live appearance. Naomie Olindo interjects to state that a friend of hers witnessed Kathryn drinking before her evening in the clubhouse. Cameran Eubanks had the same snitch friend texting her this intel as well. Kathryn maintains that she didn’t have a sip of alcohol before WWHL, and she’d admit it if she did.
In fact, Kathryn has already shared that she is back to drinking in moderation…whatever that means. Craig Conover reveals that often times the cast has lied about seeing Kathryn drink because they didn’t think she was allowed to drink. Shep Rose agrees that they have all defended Kathryn’s reputation more than she knows.
Geez Louise. There is a lot to unpack from last night’s Southern Charm reunion, the least of which was the spectrum of outfits…but seriously, can we talk about that for a quick second? Cameran Eubanks keeps it chic and simple with her gorgeous dress and amazing shoes, but the rest of the ladies are all over the map! While Naomie Olindo looks cute repping her line, she could be at a dance club or hanging out at the mall in the 80’s with her look. And while we’re on the subject of the 80’s, Chelsea Meissner stole her dress from the Dynasty costume archives. Of course, no one’s ensemble is more confusing than Kathryn Dennis’ bridesmaid’s dress and matching eye shadow. It’s just…a lot.
Cameran is under fire from some viewers who thought she whined too much about motherhood. Instead of being defensive, Cameran admits that she cringed a bit watching some of her complaints this season. While she misses her career and the adult time it afforded her, she knows she is incredibly lucky to be able to afford to be a stay-at-home mom. Motherhood has certainly changed Cameran, and she loves that she can watch Palmer grow and change each day. Cam apologizes if she came across spoiled or privileged as she is very aware of her good fortune. Kathryn comes to Cameran’s defense, asserting that every mother struggles with the same feelings of guilt and the inability to balance.
Well, last night we finally got to see the two minutes of cocktail chaos that Southern Charm has been teasing us with all season! While the party crash was anti-climatic, the real drama was the demise of a bromance and the rise to fame of those elusive ladies from the cell phone footage…let’s dig in, shall we?
Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul are shopping at Gwynn’s and exploring fifty shades of Gucci. As they try on shoes for Pat’s upcoming cocktail party, the pair gossip about Shep Rose’s horrible attitude towards Austen Kroll’s relationship with Madison LeCroy. Patricia reveals what we’ve all known–Shep despises Madison because she once rebuffed his advances. Color me shocked by that news!
He loves her, he loves her not? Southern Charm’s ex-couple
that just won’t quit Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel are back in the news again as another tidbit from a court filing as been made public.
In the latest headache that is the Kathryn and Thomas show, Kathryn is now claiming that Thomas recently told her he loved her. On behalf of everyone..WTF?
Southern Charm’s Kathryn Dennis has had a rough few years. She has suffered from depression and anxiety, addiction, and a toxic relationship with her ex-boyfriend and baby-daddy, Thomas Ravenel. She had two small children at a young age. She lost custody of those children. Even with all that, the thing that upsets me the most for her is that she slept with Thomas. Gross.
Kathryn does seem to be trying to get her life together. Following her trip to rehab, she appears to have gained perspective and is living a healthier lifestyle. She regained custody of her children. She even has a hunky new boyfriend, a country singer named Hunter Price.
Thomas Ravenel is the Energizer Bunny of litigation. The ex Southern Charm star is gone from the show, but he still brings drama. Thomas and previous girlfriend, Kathryn Dennis, have been in a custody battle for YEARS. Their saga is a regular Bret Easton Ellis novel of drugs, alcohol, psycho paramours, and rehab. Oh, and sexual assault allegations.
Thomas and Kathryn have shown an ability to co-parent. But it seems co-parenting isn’t on their agenda. The former couple had joint custody, but Thomas’ arrest motivated Kathryn to make a change. In 2018 she filed for sole custody and that’s when the battle really began. Since then Thomas has been on a dragging fest. Dragging anyone involved with Kathryn into court. In true Energizer Bunny fashion, now Thomas has new allegations. He just keeps going, and going, and going…
