Kathryn Dennis' 'Southern Charm' Days Are Over

It looks like when Southern Charm returns to Bravo for Season 4, it will be without a familiar face. Kathryn Dennis isn't returning to Southern Charm , the reality star tweeted Friday. Bustle has reached out to Bravo regarding Dennis' tweets and who the Season 4 cast will include, but has yet to receive a response. "Was excited to show the new me on #SouthernCharm but they aren't interested," she wrote. "I want to thank my fans for EVERYTHING and wish #SC4 luck!" She added, "It's time for me to focus on my kids and myself. This was the best decision for us! No hard feelings. Good luck y'all!"

Well, that's a major bummer, isn't it? Don't get me wrong, most of the other cast members make the Bravo series entertaining and worth watching, but what is Southern Charm without Dennis? Let's face it, she is the show.

Since Season 1, Dennis has brought the drama, the fights, and the laughs to one of Bravo's best reality series. Can you imagine it without her? It certainly won't be the same and, to be honest, I'm afraid it won't be as good. Let me just say, it doesn't really makes sense. And if Thomas Ravenel is returning, why not Dennis? They have so much history, not to mention two kids together, so featuring one-half of the former couple would be mind-boggling to me. If I had to choose, yeah, I'd pick Dennis over T-Rav and I'm not sorry about that one bit.

That said, based on Dennis' second tweet, it appears she is fine with decision. She is going to take the time away from Southern Charm to focus on herself and her family, which isn't a bad thing at all. Maybe this will turn out to be a much-needed break. As unfortunate as this news is, if Dennis is OK with it, then I guess I can be OK with it.

Though, that doesn't make me any less upset about my TV schedule without Dennis or worrisome over whether Season 4 will be a success. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that this isn't the last we've seen of her.
