Kathryn Dennis: America’s Next Reality TV Star?

WILL SOUTH CAROLINA DIVA SCORE STARRING ROLE IN NEW REALITY TV SHOW?  Who’s the undisputed queen of the South Carolina political world? That’s easy … it’s 21-year-old Kathryn Calhoun Dennis, a 5-foot-11 redheaded bombshell who happens to be the scion of not one, but two of the Palmetto State’s most…


Who’s the undisputed queen of the South Carolina political world? That’s easy … it’s 21-year-old Kathryn Calhoun Dennis, a 5-foot-11 redheaded bombshell who happens to be the scion of not one, but two of the Palmetto State’s most prestigious political families.

A model, writer and aspiring political operative, Dennis has appeared on this website as both a published author and as the object of our founding editor’s affection obsession (here and here).  That exposure – along with her headline-grabbing “Factory Girl” persona –  has made Dennis a household name in her home state.

Is she ready to make the big jump, though?  According to an Atlanta talent scout who spoke with FITS on condition of anonymity, “yes.”  In fact Dennis is one of three young female politicos in the Palmetto State currently being considered for starring roles in a new reality television program tentatively dubbed “Divas of the Deep South.”

It’s not immediately clear which network is exploring this concept – but we’re told it is being advanced by a company with several hit reality programs under its belt.  In fact the company may have already retained a South Carolina-based public relations firm to compile a promotional video (dubbed a “sizzle reel”) of Dennis and her friends.

According to our sources, executives at the network became particularly interested in the concept when they learned of Dennis’ recent arrest for underage drinking and disorderly conduct.  They also fell in love – as we’re sure you will – with several racy private photos of Dennis that were provided anonymously to the agency.  FITS has obtained several of these photos – which show Dennis modeling skimpy bikinis and lingerie.

“She is young, rich, beautiful and full of inner demons and external conflicts,” the scout told us. “We like everything we’ve seen from her – especially her unpredictability.”

According to the scout, most women pitched for roles in politically-themed shows are unable to “carry” narratives on their own – forcing the shows to rely on “trappings” rather than characters.

“The power and affluence of her set is a nice touch but it’s not enough,” the scout explained. “You need big personalities capable of producing moments people feel deep down – regardless of the setting.  If trappings mattered Real Housewives of D.C. would have been a hit.”

Real Housewives of D.C. – which debuted in 2010 – was the first installment of the Real Housewives franchise not to be renewed.  Why not?

“It was boring,” the scout explained.

Critics agreed.

“Pretty soon, you’re wishing Caroline and the New Jersey babes would show up with their stripper poles and toss over a table. Or two,” columinst Maureen Dowd wrote of the show for TV Guide.

So can Dennis and her friends “carry” a Housewives-size drama?  We may soon find out …

Earlier this year, the Berkeley County native and University of South Carolina student was dating former S.C. Rep. Thad Viers, but sources tell FITS Dennis has since gotten back together with her ex-boyfriend.  Is that a good thing?  Eh … we’re not so sure.  Last time Dennis was hanging around with this guy bad things happened.

Of course “bad things” could be music to the producers’ ears – as good life decisions don’t necessarily equal good television ratings.

So will Dennis land this role? Time will tell … although we have to say we hope she does.   After all, any reality TV show featuring her as one of its stars would be an infinite improvement over other S.C.-based reality programs that are reportedly coming down the pipe.

Anyway enjoy the pics … and remember, once you’re inside the gallery you can enlarge each image even further by clicking on it a second time …

I agree with the agency guy. She does indeed have an outstanding set.

HAH! First outta the box with that one.

Now, brace for the obligatory BigT diatribe about Sic being a pervy closet liberal obsessed with pop culture and porn and thus really a slave to Obama.

In that first photo, she looks at least 30. Girl! Get OUT OF THE SUN!

? October 22, 2012 at 12:47 pm

and people wonder how SC gets stereotyped…lol….just more good PR for SC.

At least we know she’ll make an appearance on Colbert if she lands the reality show gig.

Can you imagine seeing a TV crew tail her around with her friends at the state fair?

lmao….someone’s gonna hit TV gold

Okay October 22, 2012 at 1:00 pm

And all the other reality shows in every other state are good PR for them?

? October 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm

I’m not saying that…lol….the stereotypes of NJ are being reinforced as well.

Obviously she’s not gonna be a tourism draw though.

fix the photo viewer please, it’s annoying

Chris Memminger October 22, 2012 at 1:25 pm

A low budget reality show is not how you get respect and achieve success. It may good training for SC politics though. My prediction: this girl and Honey Boo Boo go to rehab on EXACTLY the same day in 2019. Mark my words.

Robert October 22, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I like boobs as much if not more than most. But this young lady is not a bombshell.

And I’m sure her family is so proud of her.

BigT October 22, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Is this a casting call for ‘Real Housewives of the Trailer Park’ maybe…?

I’m guessing the tastes of FITS and Co. are a bit lower-brow than those of a man of higher quality….

Not saying FITS is hard up…but any man who continually ogles is usually indicative of a poor game.

mother October 25, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Well said.

Todd October 22, 2012 at 1:41 pm

A reality show about a moderately attractive chubby redhead with a heart of gold? Meh I’ll stick to teen mom.

sid October 23, 2012 at 11:03 am

Chubby? Really? You must love Victoria Beckham.

Carrie October 22, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Oh, I thought Honey Boo Boo and her family’s reality show would be the show of the South.

BigT October 22, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Episode One:

Trailer Park Wives visited by Danny Frazier and Jake Knotts…walking around the park naked…w/ fist-fulls of video gaming money on Friday night….

It’s a party ’til a Lexington County Dpeuty pulls up and wants his taste…(and we’re not talkin’ about just a skim off the top)

Give me a $500 advance and I’ll have the first show written by Friday.

That’s a shame, she’s average best… even though it appears she things she’s hot shit.

matt October 22, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Kathryn Dennis is a train wreck gone wrong… What other “hotties” are being considered for the show?

Carrie October 22, 2012 at 3:49 pm

“MBC” the woman who stole your ex-governor’s heart. She is a “hottie” per those beach pictures. Sanford made sure we saw what a catch he got and if she is a SC resident, she could very well be a candidate for the show.

House Insider October 22, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Come on Hot ? She has a gut also

Advice: over-expposure to the sun can cause serious health problems and advanced aging. So can smoking.

FITS forgot to tell you that FITS is the SC-based PR firm retained to promote this “only-in-her-head” TV show.

Truth October 22, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Look at her left arm in that photo of her in green, typing on a laptop… Is she a cutter too? This will make for some good TV.

Alex October 22, 2012 at 5:31 pm

I Love Kathryn Dennis, she is an amazing young woman. Will and Thad both have awesome criminal records dealing with domestic violence, and this is a fine example of how little they respect females. Long live the kings.

matt October 22, 2012 at 5:33 pm

“Truth” you are a sick individual. What kind of excuse of a human encourages that behavior? You should be ashamed of yourself.

Truth October 22, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Not sure what you think I said, sport. Re-read what I said. I only asked a question and pointed out cutters are tailor made for reality TV.

Are you high?

MajorC October 22, 2012 at 6:52 pm

21 years old and her core is way to flabby for her age. Too many Bud Lights. The cigarette tells all. Smokers don’t exercise. She’ll look 40+ at 30 with periodontal disease as well.

She needs to enroll in a hot yoga class and cleanse her inner and outer self. She appears to be SC’s Lindsay Lohan wanna be — and that is the kind of woman Will Folks lusts after.

Sic luvs them IHOP waitresses with the soft drink smiles. Teeth: 5 down and “7-Up”

dirty harry October 22, 2012 at 8:47 pm

i agree, cigarette breath is really disgusting. after dating a girl (once) who smoked in high school, i never did it again. her mouth, hair, clothes, everything stinked. i had to take a shower and wash my own hair when i came home. this girl is just plain dumb. only stupid asses smoke.

Mary October 23, 2012 at 6:58 am

In the old days she would have been known as the common whore she is. She has fucked her way through high school and college and now is doing so through the adult world.

If she were paid my the number of strange dudes planting a load on her face she would be the richest slut in whoredom.

I’m just glad I taped a bunch of shows on “The History Channel” before it too went into the shitter with a bunch of “reality” shows

Hambone October 23, 2012 at 11:32 am

you know redheads with freckles have those spots all over their bodies except where the sun don’t shine, so their boobs and asses are white as snow – very sexy

ObGyn October 24, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Just looking at these pictures this woman is physically about 7-9 years past her actual age. I see a lot of fluid and flab forming in the wrong places. Jelly belly syndrome. 29 will be her tipping point. As my pa used to say, “rode hard and put up wet.”

Kinda sad that her definition of beauty is the same as Mr. Folks’s. Nothing personal against the young woman, but all the pics are kind of slutty at best.

mother October 25, 2012 at 1:15 pm

“Mr. Folks” has issues. His web site would be more reputable if he didn’t use it to demean women and lust after young girls. It’s gross.

This girl would most likely be much more attractive in normal clothing. Sad that the internet is used this way.

ObGyn October 25, 2012 at 7:29 pm

So correct. Sad part is he has his wife’s permission to lust after females of any age. He even stares down the blouses of women while he is ushering at church. Truly, Deviants in Love.

Excalibur October 25, 2012 at 8:53 am

ughhh, from the article I thought she would be a knock out, average is the best I can say. ughhh.

Kathryn Calhoun Dennis October 29, 2012 at 11:04 pm

The majority of these pictures were taken of me when I wasn’t paying attention. Disgusting you people would take advantage of me like that.

All of you that think I’m fat; I really just don’t care what you have to say; go write in your diary or something. If you’re low enough to go through my pictures and pervertedly look at my body then you’re a loser in the first place, whether your smaller OR bigger than me.

P.S. Since everyone’s so interested in my arrest, the charges were dropped. THANKS :)

@BozMartin October 30, 2012 at 5:56 am

Wait, are you pissed at Sic over this, or just those who have commented? Was it all BS about the reality show? Are you accusing Will of a gross invasion of privacy? If so, does this mean you won’t be authoring any more stories for FITS?

Also, I have nothing against you personally, and have said before that you are attractive enough, and bla bla bla. In general I don’t really see what the big deal is supposed to be about you. So you are nice-looking Republican girl who gets mentioned and pix posted on blogs a lot for being a little wild, showing lots of skin, dating Thad, getting crunked up and being popped by the po-po in a domestic dispute or whatever it was, etc. What else ya got? And are you now somehow blaming those who read this blog and ogle your pix and comment on them for defaming you or whatever? I’m missing something here. And I’ve already wasted too much energy typing this.

btw, just so you know for future reference, nobody is too impressed when the children of powerful pols in South Carolina get charges dropped on any given case. Happens every day of the week.
