Tonight on Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis becomes a situation of epic proportions and pal Jennifer Snowden steps in to support the 24-year-old diva and deal with the situation between Kathryn and her baby-daddy 54-year-old Thomas Ravenel.
We met Jennifer last year after allegations by Thomas that he had slept with the 34-year-old real estate agent, but this year she is actually part of the cast so we get a chance to get to know her — and what do you know? She’s “charming”.
Yes, she has aligned with Kathryn Dennis for some strange reason (money from Bravo), but she is quite charming.
Anyhow, she shows up to Patricia Altschul’s flamingo party unannounced (although clearly with the approval of production—I say this because Snowden recently revealed that she was in fact paid for her time on SC and some other cast members are not.)
She shows up to the party to confront Thomas for not signing Kathryn’s lease — I mean for not staying at the hospital while Kathryn was having a panic attack — I mean heart attack or some sort of situation that required hospitalization. Yes Kathryn tried to get her baby daddy to take full financial responsibility for Kathryn’s new apartment, but T-Rav was adamant that he was not responsible for paying her rent claiming at a polo match,
“Nope. Not co-signing that lease on your house anymore.”
This causes Kathryn to have a mini-heart attack and to have some bleeding with her “unformed baby” and thus hospitalized.
Eventually T-Rav caves and signs the lease to protect his unformed child since Thomas apparently has a brother that is mentally and physically disabled — way to push buttons Kathryn!
But he is not happy and blames it all on Jennifer.
Thomas claims and Bravo’s camera confirms that Jennifer told Craig that Kathryn felt alone because T-Rav wasn’t there at hospital for her.
Thomas says to Jen,
“There’s a lot of drama thats happening and she’s (Kathryn’s) pinning it on drama that’s coming from you”
Jen insists that,
“theres a misunderstanding with you.”
As a side note I will say, it was hard to believe that we were watching an altercation because both were so charming going at one another. It was literally a “Charm off”.
In her ITM Jen claims,
“Thomas Ravenel is a bully.”
Whitney is seen screaming,
“Mom, tell her she has to leave”. Then you see Patricia Altschul sort of giggling and sauntering slowly over to Jennifer as if to ensure the cameras get as much of the drama as possible. (After all her Executive Producer son has to redeem himself after the biting reviews of his documentary UltraSuede).
JS decides to high tail it out of there claiming in her ITM, “I’m not going to wrestle in the mud with a pig”
“Jen has made it a mission to carve out a niche in Kathryn’s life to attack me.”
Jen goes on to call T-Rav,
“a shitty dad”
She also says she “feels sorry for the former State Treasurer because “he believes his own lies”.
I think she is dead on on that. Narcissists always believe their own lies.
So it’s hard to know if there is any truth to what T-Rav is saying about Jen since we have seen so little of her. But I think we have to take everything T-Rav says with a grain of salt.
He claims that the two had a fling a while ago and that Jen “wanted more” and he did not, but Jen denies this claim. It’s hard to imagine any woman not “wanting more” of T-Rav right?
So in the meantime some other things happen on this episode.
Shep jumps into the pool at Pat’s party in some tiny tighty whities.
We see some bizarre hints that Landon Clements and T-Rav are now sleeping together! (Albeit at the same time Landon is making a play for Shep). Eww!! It just feels like poor Landon is shopping for a Sugar Daddy this season given her real Daddy is putting the smack down on her open line of credit with him.
Speaking of Landon and men, Shep’s new fling Bailey Bial asks Landon if she has ever made out with Shep and she admits that they did make out a long time ago. She also hints that she would be interested in Shep if he were available. Yikes!!
At any rate the main storyline Monday was the tete a tete between Snowden and T-Rav. But it’s clear that there are a lot of unresolved issues between a lot of the cast members this season. In fact in an interview Shep claims that season 3 “things get very dark”!
