Southern Charm is not so charming for some of the cast! Thomas Ravenel feels that Southern Charm was “the worst mistake” of his life. Thomas is going through a custody battle with ex-girlfriend, Kathryn Dennis. He wants Kathryn to be banned from talking about him or their custody battle on the show. He also doesn’t want their children to be filmed for the series. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Thomas wants the entire custody battle sealed and he wants them both to be prohibited from talking about it.
Thomas said, “I do not believe Kathryn and Bravo should profit from this litigation and from the pain and suffering it has caused me and will inevitably cause our children. Sealing this case will do no good if Bravo and Kathryn are allowed to discuss this litigation on TV or social media.”
Thomas wants Bravo’s motion to dismiss his lawsuit against them denied. The Bravo network had recently filed documents to be dismissed from the entire case saying. According to The Blast, they accused Thomas of “trying to unlawfully impose restraints on a media company in violation of their first amendment rights.” The documents argue that Bravo is not fair and balanced, and that they are strictly about drama for entertainment and ratings. The Blast reports that his documents stated, “Bravo IS NOT a news organization. It does not publish truthful information pertaining to public discourse, and it has zero interest in broadcasting truthful information about the minor children, this litigation, or Ravenel on Southern Charm. Bravo’s business is not the truth. It profits from the dramatization and fictionalization of crafted, non-scripted events that it airs to the public as Reality TV.”
Thomas said, “The worst mistake of my life was agreeing to be the star of the reality TV show Southern Charm. It amplified my past notoriety, showcased my wealth I accumulated through decades of hard work, and made me a walking target for men and women eager to get in front of the camera. Most importantly, it caused embarrassment and pain to my parents, my sisters, and my children.”
Back in November of 2018, Thomas filed a lawsuit against Bravo and Southern Charm producers that demanded that they be prevented from broadcasting unaired footage on the show. Thomas filed these documents as part of his ongoing custody battle with Kathryn. She had filed for primary custody of the children back in October of 2018.
Their custody battle is still ongoing.
I’m hoping for the best for them and their children!
