Friday morning Kathryn Dennis announced over Twitter that she will not be returning to the 4th season of Southern Charm. …….Sigh.
Shockingly it sounds like Kathryn was fired. She has since deleted the telling tweets but they read,
Was excited to show the new me on #SouthernCharm but they aren’t interested. I want to thank my fans for EVERYTHING and wish #SC4 luck!

It’s time for me to focus on my kids and myself. This was the best decision for us! No hard feelings. Good luck y’all! #southerncharm
Of course Bravo has yet to confirm and I can’t imagine why they would axe the 24-year-old southern siren given her pivotal and polarizing role on the show. So I suspect that there was more going on here.
I would propose a few conspiracies:
1: Executive producer Whitney Sudler Smith and his very powerful straight-talking mother Patricia Altschul gave Bravo an ultimatum to dump Kathryn or they were leaving after Kathryn revealed that she and Whitney were in a relationship before she met Thomas.
2: Thomas Ravenel gave Bravo an ultimatum and said he would not star on the show if Kathryn was going to be on it given their very acrimonious divorce, plus…one Diva too many.
3: Kathryn was demanding more money and Bravo called her bluff. Once reality stars know how important they are to a show they have a tendency to get demanding. The tweet was an effort to get fans riled up and fighting for her.
Additionally the fact that Kathryn deleted the tweet suggests Bravo and her came to an agreement and she is not actually leaving.
Kathryn is fresh out of rehab after testing positive during a drug test brought on by a lawsuit from baby daddy Thomas Ravenel.
Fingers crossed the tweet was just posturing and we will get to see the “new” her on season 4.
