These rumors only escalated when Ravenel’s crisis managers/ apologists at the website All About The Tea responded with a tweet unilaterally denying the 55-year-old playboy’s alleged involvement in any such recording.
“Fake news,” the site claimed, referring to the sex tape rumor. “No sex tape exists on T-Rav.”
Is that true, though?
According to the blog, Ravenel appeared in a “coke filled sex tape he probably doesn’t remember shooting.”
“It will end whatever career he has left, which shouldn’t be any after his past actions,” the site added, referring to recent sexual assault allegations dogging the disgraced politician (allegations which were exclusively reported by this news site, incidentally).
According to Amy Feinstein of The Inquisitr, Ravenel fears the tape “will soon be exposed.”
So … is there a tape?
According to our sources, the Ravenel sex tape rumors stem from a “mystery woman” who burst on the scene about three years ago – but was never identified. Longtime Southern Charm viewers will recall her as being referenced by both Ravenel and his ex-girlfriend/ co-star Kathryn Dennis during the show’s season two reunion program.
Both Ravenel and Dennis accused each other of having an affair with this woman – a 34-year-old Army veteran who has reportedly been involved romantically with several prominent Palmetto politicos in recent years.
This woman is alleged to have participated in a sex romp with Ravenel on Halloween in 2015 – five months after we reported on her initial interludes with the reality star. Additional hook-ups are alleged to have continued through December of 2015. According to a source who witnessed the Halloween hookup, parts of that exchange may have been taped. But at least one previous encounter involving her and Ravenel was taped, we’re told.
Additionally, screen caps from the exchange have reportedly been provided to several sources – including at least one Southern Charm cast member.
Yeah … still think there’s “100 percent” no sex tape?
Frankly, we don’t see what the fuss is about. Sex tapes are pretty commonplace these days, and “sex tape scandals” are routinely used to create news stories that drive up the ratings of shows like Southern Charm. And it’s not like Ravenel can really embarrass himself any further, right?
In other words: Why would Ravenel care if a tape like this existed? Or was released?
