Kathryn Dennis Confirms ‘Southern Charm’ Exit Amid Termination Rumors

Kathryn Dennis’s tenure on Southern Charm has officially concluded. The reality star revealed her departure from the Bravo reality series Sunday night (January 11), following speculations of her dismissal.

Dennis has appeared as a guest star in Season 1 of Southern Charm, following her on-and-off romance with regular cast member Thomas Ravenel, since the show’s premiere in 2014.

She gained insight into her custody struggle with Ravenel over their two children and the effects of her spell in rehabilitation during the course of the series’ run.

“What an adventure it’s been! Can you believe I was only 21 when I began filming the first season of Southern Charm? In the decade since then, it’s safe to say my life has evolved in ways I never imagined,” Dennis stated in a statement announcing her departure.

She went on to say that “things haven’t always been easy” on the show and revealed that there are “moments” she’d like to forget.

Dennis has had her fair share of scandals, since she has frequently been involved with the show’s drama. She was accused of racism in 2020 when she sent insulting tweets to the Black activist Mika Gadsden. At one time, according to Buzzfeed, Dennis allegedly wrote over 20 direct messages to Gadsden, using a monkey emoji and labeling her a “psycho.”

This led to a quarrel between Dennis and her co-star Leva Bonaparte.

Nonetheless, Dennis’ departure is disappointing to some followers, one of whom tweeted, “Southern Charm is over now!” Someone else remarked, “Thank you, Kathryn Dennis. She provided us virtually EVERYTHING, including an incredible character arc. She will be missed.”

Dennis continued to express thanks for her experience on the series in her message. “Y’all have seen me mature, become the mother of two incredible children, and forge friendships that I will always cherish. And throughout it all, the love y’all have shown me not only provided me the courage I required to overcome it all, but also made me know I wasn’t alone. I am really appreciative, she said.

The reality actress stated, “I’ll keep that love with me as I begin my next chapter, away from the Southern Charm lens. I’m grateful to Bravo, the Haymaker producers, and my Charleston co-stars for everything, and I’m looking forward to whatever happens next.”

Dennis closed her remarks by stating, “If it’s anything like the last ten years, it’ll be an unforgettable journey. LFG.”

This week, reports arose that Dennis’ role in the upcoming season of Southern Charm had been altered, with The Sun alleging she had been sacked and Deadline stating she had been demoted from the main cast. The alleged termination followed complaints that Dennis was tardy to set or a no-show. An insider told The Sun, “I am aware that Bravo did not offer her a contract, but when you treat people as poorly as she has, they eventually get sick of it.”

After revealing her departure from the show, Dennis posted a selfie with the message, “A phoenix must first burn in order to rise from its own ashes.”

While Dennis’ future in the realm of reality television is undetermined, she has made it clear that she will not vanish from public view. She joined OnlyFans earlier this week and put the link to her secret website to her Instagram and Twitter bios. She added in her bio on her new site, “You probably know me from Southern Charm on Bravo, but you don’t know the real me—at least not yet.”

Season 9 of Southern Charm has not yet been granted an official premiere date or cast, but new details are expected to be released soon, considering that the previous season concluded in October. When communicating the above remark to Decider, Bravo declined to comment on additional casting details.
