Thomas Ravenel was an essential part of Southern Charm. Without Thomas, we wouldn’t have seen Kathryn Dennis’ life go down the drain as a result of REALLY bad choices and a broken boyfriend picker. Yes, Thomas brought the drama and scandal but he eventually brought the sexual assault charges, so he got fired as a result.
While some fans are disgusted at the mere mention of Thomas’ name, others felt the show took a nosedive when he departed. Kathryn went on to receive a redemption edit that warmed your cockles, that she has since all but blown out of the water. Fast forward to Season 7. After declaring Southern Charm basically ruined his life, T-Rav showed up on the premier episode. Turns out his surprise cameo didn’t cause the internet to shut down with demands from people wanting him back. Naturally Thomas shared his disillusion with the public – before deleting his own words.
In today’s era of scandal, the most important one to follow is what exactly is going on with Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs. Are they fake together, are they fake broken up, are they even real people, or is this an optical illusion of what happens when you consume too much bourbon? Whatever the case, it appears Thomas and Ashley celebrated something together this weekend that may or may not have been an engagement, or at least that’s what they want us to believe!
By now you all know that Thomas quit Southern Charm (aka was possibly fired in the wake of his sexual assault investigation) and is feuding with Whitney and Pat. They think he’s scum; he thinks they lied to make him look bad. We also know that Kathryn Dennis now has 50/50 custody of their children and has banned Ashley from being around them. Rightfully so!
The rumors that Thomas Ravenel will not attend the upcoming Southern Charm reunion have just been substantiated by Bravo! That makes it official, y’all – it’s a white pants-free zone.
Frankly, I’m not surprised by the decision. Not only has Thomas been battling two high profile sexual assault allegations, but Patricia Altschul and Whitney Sudler-Smith are not speaking to him in the wake of not only his legal issues but also the vile tragedy that is his girlfriend Ashley Jacobs. And Patricia has made NO secret of her disgust towards Thomas. ‘Bout time lady! Did Michael slip a wake up call in her cocktail and a reality check under her perfectly ironed cat-ty caftan?
On a serious note, I am so thankful to you, dear readers…thankful for your loyalty to this site, for your comments, and yes, even for your critiques! 😉 I feel very grateful for a gig where I am able to watch awesomely bad reality television and share my snark, shock, opinions, and life with all of you. That said, I’m also thankful for the Charleston police for releasing what may be the most amazing cell phone video footage…ever. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again–I am so glad that I didn’t grow up in a time where technology was the norm. Unfortunately, Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel didn’t either, yet it’s not working out for him at the moment!
By now, y’all know that my Bravo guilty pleasure is returning with T-Rav front and center (I never believed him when he said he was done!). You’ve also heard about his recent incident where ex-girlfriend/baby mama Kathryn Dennis’ stylist/baby-sitter accused Thomas of assault and claimed to have iPhone video footage to prove it. Well, Merry Christmas, y’all! The Post & Courier (my local paper) has said footage, and it’s every bit as fabulous as you’d hoped. There is yelling. T-Rav accuses Kathryn and her friend of smoking weed in his house. Kathryn reminds him multiple times that he fell into the pool with their baby (baby is fine!), and someone is fishing for a new designer bag. Did I mention that T-Rav is naked the entire time? Yes, Christmas certainly came early! I still have a weird affinity for Thomas, and I kind of wish that his business wasn’t blurred in the video. #sorrynotsorry Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to you and yours!

So, I received a text last night from my dear friend Will (not Folks–ew–a.k.a. T-Rav’s consultant turned nemesis) asking if I’d seen Thomas Ravenel’s latest campaign commercial. As many of you know, the Southern Charm Lothario and par for the course embarrassing South Carolina politician is running for United States Senate. He wrote, “PLEASE tell me you’ve seen T-Rav’s political ad. He’s holding his baby, talking about how he doesn’t ‘run away from his responsibilities.’ YouTube it. Totally worth it.” (Un)fortunately, I didn’t have to YouTube anything, as the seems to run on a constant loop on any given channel…and he was right–totally worth it.
In the ad, T-Rav goes on to say he’s done things he’s proud of as well as things he’s not proud of (I wonder in which category Southern Charm falls). Well, yesterday news erupted that made this campaign ad particularly hilarious…and it involved Thomas likely doing something he’s not proud of while holding his daughter…allegedly. According to a recent accusation, T-Rav drunkenly fell in his pool while holding his baby (she’s fine!) before assaulting girlfriend Kathryn Dennis’ stylist. Good times!
