REALITY TV STARS HEADED TO COURT …
Reality television stars Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis will face each other in a Charleston County courtroom at least once this month … however the case could be sealed before any of its particulars go public.
Ravenel, 54, is suing his 24-year-old former girlfriend (and co-star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm) over custody and visitation matters related to their children – two-year-old daughter Kensington Calhoun Ravenel and seven-month-old son St. Julien Rembert Ravenel (a.k.a. “Saint”).
A family court judge in the Holy City will hear a motion to seal the case next Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. Meanwhile a temporary hearing on the merits of the legal battle has been scheduled for June 27 at 9:30 a.m.
Neither Ravenel nor Dennis were immediately available to comment on the scheduled hearings.
Last May we were the first news outlet to publish reports that the 24-year-old redheaded bombshell was pregnant with her and Ravenel’s second child. We were also the first outlet to publish a picture of Dennis with her “baby bump” after she confirmed the news in September.

Ravenel and Dennis have had an exceedingly combustible relationship ever since they first hooked up (at the suggestion of this website’s founding editor Will Folks, ironically) – but the tension between the two of them has been a ratings bonanza for Bravo.
The couple’s discord escalated again earlier this year after Dennis sat down for an exclusive interview with Folks. Ravenel responded by giving Dennis an “F-minus” in mothering and referring to her as an “agent of the devil.”
Earlier this week Dennis fired back.
“He hasn’t called me, talked to our kids, seen our kids in months,” she said during an interview on Sirus radio. “He hasn’t given me money. So that’s kind of why I’m asking for his help and support.”
Dennis said Ravenel promised he would take care of her after they had children.
Ravenel is represented in his suit against Dennis by F.P. “Charlie” Segars-Andrews, a former family court judge. Dennis is represented by Gregory Forman.
