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.
The latest season of Southern Charm covered a variety of twists and turns. Many episodes followed the Southern BLM movement and cast-members getting publicly called out for racism. Fans also saw the cast navigate the very early days of the pandemic. On a more superficial note, there were a few love triangles to keep up with. The greatest shock of all? Perhaps seeing Thomas Ravenel sipping coffee with Kathryn Dennis in episode one. Personally, I was floored.
At the time, the two were living together. It still boggles the mind. Later, fans learned Thomas was also preparing to father his next child with a woman Kathryn had no awareness of. In more recent months, these two have had all their court proceedings aired out. And it hasn’t been pretty, especially for Kathryn who is up against possibly the slimiest creep we have ever seen on Bravo.
Shep Rose has been a mainstay on Southern Charm since the beginning. He’s a womanizer, a party animal, and a bit of a late bloomer.
And now Shep can add author to the list, as he just released his book Average Expectations: Lessons in Lowering the Bar, about his life, relationships, and his time on the show. I haven’t gotten my hands on a copy yet. However, I’m not exactly dying for life advice from a 40-year-old frat boy who has family money. But at least he knows what it takes to make good TV, unlike Landon Clements.
The current era of Southern Charm‘s main source of controversy is Madison LeCroy, Austen Kroll and their various relationships A-List celebrities (and athletes). But, true fans will never forget where it all started.
It was really the drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis that put the show on the map. It remained a central plot for seasons to come (even in his absence). And while there have been many villains in the show’s history (cough cough Ashley Jacobs), Landon Clements is definitely a name that’s hard to forget.
Throughout the seven seasons of Southern Charm, there have been so many controversies, arguments and scandals that it’s hard to remember them all.
However, there is one villain who may be gone for the show but will never be forgotten — Ashley Jacobs, Thomas Ravenel‘s ex. And Shep Rose is apparently still a little scarred by Ashley’s time on the show, but aren’t we all?
Shep Rose made two shocking announcements in 2020. The first is that he wrote a book! The second is that he is in a real life committed relationship. Thank goodness we can be rid of Relationshep once and for all. And one thing that we all have in common with Shep’s new book, Taylor Ann Green? She’s just as disinterested in reading the details of Shep’s former “untamed life.”
With the coronavirus shutdowns and the heavy focus on Kathryn Dennis’ racist behavior, there wasn’t much time to dive into Shep and Taylor’s love life in the latest season of Southern Charm. With the release of his new book, Average Expectations: Lessons in Lowering the Bar, Shep is using his press opportunities to let the people know what exactly is going on.
Just like many reality TV stars, Shep Rose has a book coming out. And of course, he dished on his Southern Charm experiences.
Apparently, Shep’s girlfriend Taylor Ann Green wasn’t too pleased to read about his sexual relationship with his-costar Kathryn Dennis.
Woof. Honestly, I thought the belated and super public fetal alcohol accusations were way too much. Thomas Ravenel will simply *not* keep any potentially negative press about the mother of his children to himself. I get that Kathryn Dennis is a grown woman, making her own decisions (many of which are super fucked up), but this is the mother of his kids! He was literally just living with her! And she thought they were getting back together?? Sure, that’s completely delusional from a self-respect standpoint, but it also doesn’t add up.
Before Thomas’ exit from the show, most of this couples’ tumult made its way onto Southern Charm. Now we have to rely on court documents for this mess.
