Thomas Ravenel: Relationship With Kathryn Dennis “Over”

ALLEGATIONS OF BLACKMAIL, THREATS SWIRL BEHIND THE SCENES By FITSNEWS || Lowcountry businessman and independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel broke up with his girlfriend Kathryn Dennis (the mother of his seven-month-old child) over social media this weekend. And yeah … seems like there’s a lot of that going on…

ALLEGATIONS OF BLACKMAIL, THREATS SWIRL BEHIND THE SCENES

By FITSNEWS || Lowcountry businessman and independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel broke up with his girlfriend Kathryn Dennis (the mother of his seven-month-old child) over social media this weekend.

And yeah … seems like there’s a lot of that going on in South Carolina politics these days.

Anyway, the 52-year-old star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm reality show announced the end of his relationship with Dennis – his 23-year-old co-star – via Facebook Sunday evening.  In his post, Ravenel accused Dennis of refusing to promptly clear him of recent assault allegations against her hair stylist, Lauren Moser.

During that October 17 incident – which occurred at the Charleston, S.C. home the couple shared – Ravenel also allegedly fell into a pool while carrying his baby.

Wait … didn’t Dennis have her man’s back in that case?  Yes … 

Not fast enough, according to Ravenel …

“When the allegations surfaced that I had assaulted Kathryn Dennis’ hairdresser, I pleaded with Kathryn to leave the Bravo shoot in Jekyll Island,” Ravenel wrote.  “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,” he continued.  “The temptation of missing film time was a more a important value to her. So telling. Our relationship is over.”

If that sounds a bit contrived, there may be a reason why …

Sources familiar with the dust-up tell FITS that Dennis actually broke up with Ravenel first – at which point he allegedly threatened her and attempted to bribe her in an effort to “keep this private.”

Other threats were said to have been made – including one alleged death threat against a 24-year-old female political operative who is friends with Dennis.

Ravenel has quit Southern Charm twice – only to return to the show both times.

This website initially supported Ravenel’s candidacy, but several weeks ago we stopped having anything to do with it (and him) when we began to suspect the whole thing was about reality television ratings, not real world political issues.

(For our report on that, CLICK HERE).

Ravenel showed flashes of his policy brilliance during a recent radio interview with former S.C. lieutenant governor Ken Ard – but he’s been unable to avoid pitfalls in his personal life.

UPDATE: Ravenel has removed his Facebook post.  Here’s the screen grab …

Don’t worry.In my opinion , Fits will get back to stalking/ harassing Haley and her family in the morning. It appears to be personal.

Can anybody explain why what T-Rav is allegedly doing to Dennis is any different than what Fits is doing to Nikki?

T-Rav =”reality television”….Fits= “reality blog”?

Strange how stories of stupid, trashy behavior just seem to follow this guy, no? Purely coincidental, I’m sure. One note for ol’ TR, though. His relationship with that chic isn’t “over.” Not by a long shot. He can ask any Family Court judge and he or she will ‘splain that to him right quick. He’s looking at a good 18-22 years’ worth of relationship (in some form or another) with the Dennis girl

By the way, has anyone figured out the deal on this amateurish comment system yet? If FITS was looking to cut down on input from the unwashed commenting masses, this will surely do it…

Mike:

No telling why the comment system changed, but it has the obvious side effect of keeping upvoted comments off the top of the page. Such comments include or have included:

Helpful tips on recovering data from a dead hard drive.

Reminders concerning a certain CDV conviction.

Observations on the obvious reversals in stance (and obvious reasons) in regards to Fits’ featured “personalities”. Templeton and T-Rav are the latest examples.

Comments calling out non-events that were 100% manufactured and hyped by Fitsnews (T-Rav’s “promising” Senate candidacy).

Comments calling out 100% manufactured drama that may or may not have occurred (“The Boeing Incident”, T-Rav again).

Comments calling out the many breaking news “exclusives” that go down the memory hole, with no further mention after the initial allegations.

Anyway, I think a good number of us understand that this is not a news site. It’s an entertainment and gossip blog, and several of the site’s “stars” either pay or are paid to garner page views. The players’ relationships reverse or go sour based on the usual dynamics…who is or is trying to fuck who, who is getting paid vs. paying for content and how much, and who among them knows enough about all of the above to twist things their way.

Sorry for the ramble.

Why the furor over changing the comments?

Fits made an obvious Business decision that he was paying Disqus too much for their services and that ,while a few of you “believers” in the so called”Free Enterprise” system would wail and gnash your teeth for awhile,you would keep the Right Wing patter coming.

And he’s right!

Thank God for the Free market!

Now,shut your damn mouths and get back to telling us all how the damn contry is coming to an end!

What is a narcissistic, blabbering socialist like you going to do without a “like” button with this new format? I see a visit to Dr. Phil for you in the very near future with this change.

Only change I see on here is that the lib/socialists that post their hate of God and America while advocating for the destruction of the moral and cultural foundation in this country won’t be able to have an orgasm all over each other with the “like” button”-my guess is that button was always located in “sparklecity” SC. :-)

Kinda sad that T-Rav broke up with her, but who couldn’t see this coming?

Exposing your newborn child and family to the stress of a TV show & a political campaign? Most people struggle just with a new baby & new family let alone tossing those other two factors in.

The fact that T-Rav used $900K as the justification for ending his relationship with his baby’s mother is shameful.

If everyone ended their marriage on the basis of a spouse having cost the couple some money via a mistake, they’d even be MORE divorced couples.

Yes, they aren’t married, but they do have a child together, yet they are both acting like children themselves.

Gee, and we don’t hear much from Mark 20:14 these days either. You did the right thing. Studies show recent millennial college graduates hired for employment only last a year on the job. The study a shows that millennials do not have loyalties to their employer and will quit for another job after a year. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. I got a 24 year old bottle of scotch and a few business ideas that will more than make up any recent campaign expenses. One thing, I want you to take me water skiing under the Ravenel Bridge. PS, Will seems ok. The more he works with and deals with Boomers the more he will be tolerable by operating and thinking like us. Shoot, he grew up with WJC in the WH, so cut him some slack.
