The rocky relationship that is Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis on Southern Charm is only going to get rockier as the season progresses. The season began with the two living in the "boondocks," as Kathryn put it, raising their young daughter, Kensington, trying not to kill each other — that last part is a matter of opinion, but they didn't look happy. Some media outlets have reporting back and forth for the past seven months that these two are on and off, and on and then off. So what the hell actually happened with Thomas and Kathryn's relationship?
It's kind of an ugly road, so buckle up, put your helmet on, grab a glass of wine, and prepare to dive into the relationship woes of T-Rav and Kathryn. For fans of the Southern Charm couple, the what of their messy relationship isn't that hard to find out. The two are very public about their relationship, in a way a 6th-grader would be, meaning they post on social media... a lot. Almost always the posts get deleted, but — as the terrifying saying goes — the Internet is forever. *shutters*
Here is a cheat sheet for all that T-Rav and Kathryn drama that went down over the past seven or so months. How much of it will be shown on the show? Only time will tell, but we can always count on their Facebook statuses.
Thomas & Kathryn Split In October 2014
In October 2014, the couple split after an unfortunate situation that involved legal action. In October, Thomas was accused of assaulting a hairstylist. After Kathryn allegedly didn't come to clear Thomas' name, he wrote on Facebook that the two had split, except it wasn't that simple.
When the allegations surfaced that I had assaulted Kathryn Dennis’ hairdresser, I pleaded with Kathryn to leave the Bravo shoot in Jekyll Island. They had even packed her bags and had lined up a driver. She told me she was coming to clear my name but then she backed out at the last second and delayed telling the truth by 1 an 1/2 days. $900k of my campaign money down the drain. The investigators even told me that if she would have come and corroborated the accuser’s story I would be cleared. The temptation of missing film time was a more a important value to her. So telling. Our relationship is over.
This occurred in October, which would suggest that we'll see the aftermath of this split on the show, since Jennifer (Southern Charm-er) posted on Instagram that she wrapped filming November 2014.
Thomas & Kathryn Get Back Together
After the ugly and public split, the two seemed to reconcile around the holiday season, which might not be shown on the show due to filming have wrapped. But from the looks of Kathryn's Instagram, they seemed to be all smiles. Unfortunately, I don't think that trend lasted for very long because...
Thomas Publicly Dumps Kathryn... AGAIN
It never ends, you guys. In March, Thomas allegedly took to Facebook AGAIN to share a screenshot of Kathryn professing her love for an ex, named Tanner. In addition to the screenshot, Thomas also added that he should listen to his lawyer and run when he sees Kathryn. You can see the now deleted post here.
Kathryn Retaliates Against Thomas
Following Thomas' public post, Kathryn also posted on Facebook — maybe we should delete the Facebook accounts people? — that Thomas allegedly had sex with her best friend while she was pregnant. This post, too, was deleted but not quick enough for bloggers to screenshot. Who the friend is isn't known to the public. We've met some of Kathryn's friends on Southern Charm, but who knows if it's one of the women Kathryn confides in or if it's someone else she's removed from her life.
Their Current Status Is Just As Confusing
In April, Kathryn opened up to People about her relationship with Thomas. She said, "We have our own home bases. And I think that's good for us. We need our separation just while we're trying to figure things out." So from the sound of it, and the looks of it from the lack of photos together on social media, it would appear that they are not together... but then not trying to ruin each others' lives?...
