Southern Charm Filming In Aiken




|| By FITSNEWS || Bravo TV’s Southern Charm reality show is shooting footage for its third season in Aiken County, S.C. this week, sources familiar with the production tell FITS.

Camera crews are in Aiken for a polo match at historic Whitney Field – which has been hosting polo for the last 133 years. Participating in the match?  Thomas Ravenel, one of the stars of the show.

It’s been a busy year for the 53-year-old playboy, who is reportedly back “on” with his 24-year-old co-star/ baby momma Kathryn Calhoun Dennis.  The couple are expecting their second child together, rumors of which were exclusively reported first on FITS.

A former statewide official, Ravenel was in the news earlier this month for getting head-butted at a Charleston, S.C. bar.  That incident occurred a month after he was involved in a scuffle with another man outside of a five-star Florida resort – where Ravenel was allegedly having an extended romantic liaison with the man’s ex-girlfriend (this woman).

Ravenel was busted earlier this year with another mystery woman – just weeks before he made a bizarre wedding announcement (which he later claimed was the result of someone hacking his Facebook page).

And of course there’s the perpetually metronomic state of his off-again, on-again, off-again, on again relationship with Dennis … which has been the focal point of Southern Charm.

We reported in late July that a third season of the show was indeed in the offing – even though Ravenel was vowing not to participate at the time.

“They’ve lied to me so many times but the last lie was just pathological,” Ravenel said earlier this year, referring to the show’s producers.  “Had they just told me the truth I would’ve stayed on. I actually hope they sue me. One of my hobbies is getting some evil person or corporation to sue me, and when I counter-sue I never lose.”

Ratings for Southern Charm dipped during the middle of its second season, but by the time the season finale rolled around in May the show’s audiences were surging.

What will the third season bring?

Who knows … but given the frequent entertainment Ravenel generated during the show’s “off-season,” it seems as though producers should just keep the cameras rolling 24/7/365.
