Things just keep getting worse for Kathryn Dennis. Less than a month after getting blasted in a racially-charged social media scandal, the Southern Charm star is back in the headlines because of a financial lawsuit.
This time, Kathryn is being sued by a professional image consultant. She hired her to revamp her look but allegedly never paid for her services.
By now you have heard about the hot water Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis put herself in. Kathryn shared a tense message exchange with an African American woman, defending her support of the President. While that is not a racist act in itself, screenshots of the conversation have been made public. At best, Kathryn is severely lacking in tact.
In an attempt to make a point during the correspondence, Kathryn used a monkey emoji. Naturally, this was extremely offensive to the recipient and because the context of the conversation centered around race. The monkey emoji was not seen as a gesture of amusement, but a definitive act of discrimination. Kathryn has apologized for the incident and promised to make a public statement of remorse, which has yet to occur. Now Kathryn is addressing her mistake on social media again, and offers another apology.
One of the best things that has come out of quarantine is the throwback marathons on Bravo. There’s something so nostalgic about watching our beloved Bravo stars before they had stylists and plastic surgery. Ah, simpler times. It’s fun to see where the stars we know today started from.
And apparently, I’m not the only one who appreciates the old school rawness of seasons past. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has been catching up on previous seasons of VPR while stuck at home with her fiancé Randall Emmett. Lala has come a long way since her hostess days at Sur. But her biggest takeaway? Her new face.
Southern Charm viewers know Cameran Eubanks as the “normal” cast member since she has had zero drama on the show. Well, now she’s known as a former cast member. Last week the news broke that Cameran will not be returning to the show for another season. She has served as the voice of reason. She narrated every episode. However, her life was never at the center of the action.
Cam was one of the few reality TV stars who managed to have a private life, until last week anyway. After she announced her departure from the show, rumors swirled that her husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair with a Charleston-based makeup artist. This woman denied it, with support from Cameran and she accused Kathryn Dennis of starting and spreading the rumor.
Just because the cameras aren’t rolling, that doesn’t mean the reality TV drama ever stops, especially with Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis. Soon after she and ex Thomas Ravenel finally settled their nasty child custody dispute, she encountered more issues. Her ex Joe Abruzzo is suing Bravo and some other Southern Charm cast members for comments about his “Ken doll penis.”
Last week some screenshots went public from a conversation that Kathryn had with an African American woman on Instagram. In the midst of their dispute, Kathryn referred to her with a monkey emoji, which resulted in lots of outrage. The Charleston department store that she worked with publicly disassociated with her in response. Then, Cameran Eubanks quit Southern Charm amidst rumors that her husband Jason Wimberly cheated on her. The accused mistress denied it and claimed that it was KATHRYN who started the rumor, a claim that Naomie Olindo backed up in an Instagram Story. Now, Kathryn is speaking out, but only about the emoji controversy. She hasn’t uttered a peep about coming for Cam’s marriage… allegedly.
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”?
There is a lot of Southern Charm drama this week. Kathryn Dennis got called out for referring to an African American woman with a monkey emoji. Cameran Eubanks announced that she left the show. Rumors swirled that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair. The accused mistress denied the rumors and maintained that she had never met Cameran and Jason. Cameran even publicly supported her by liking and sharing her post. This woman also claimed that Kathryn started the rumor, a story that Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner corroborated in their Instagram Stories. Oh, and Naomie and Chelsea are gone from the show too.
Thomas Ravenel chimed in to denounce the show. He claimed that they asked him to return, which is doubtful considering the sexual assault of it all. Kathryn’s longtime nemesis Landon Clements shared her two cents. And now, Thomas’ ex Ashley Jacobs is bashing Kathryn and the whole Southern Charm cast.
From reports of multiple cast members leaving the show to accusations of racism and false infidelity rumors, there’s been so much drama happening with Southern Charm this week that it’s enough to make your head spin. And now, former cast member Landon Clements couldn’t resist chiming in with her two cents regarding the show’s recent headline-making scandals.
The one-time Charmer took to social media on Thursday (May 14) to look back at her time on Southern Charm and point the finger squarely at nemesis Kathryn Dennis for all the drama that’s currently brewing in Charleston.
