Why ‘Southern Charm’ Stars Stars Kathryn Dennis And Chleb Ravenell Ended Their Relationship

Reality stars Kathryn Dennis and Chleb Ravenell split on national television last night on Southern Charm. Ravenell showed an interest in reconciliation following a bitter fight. However, it was to no avail, and the relationship was officially over after more than a year of dating.

While speaking to E! News, Ravenell admitted that their relationship had changed as soon as they moved in together. “We gave it a chance,” Ravenell told E! News during an interview on July 8. “We worked at first—we were a really loving couple—and then when we moved in together, we were kind of breaking apart from each other.” The relationship worsened more once filming for the new season of Southern Charm began, but it wasn’t what ultimately ended their romance.


Dennis has been a series regular since season two, while Ravenell made his debut as a regular this season. However, the new member of the show made a guest appearance in season seven following the announcement of their new relationship.

The Biggest Factor In Their Breakup Was A Recurring Issue Outside Their Romance

Dennis is currently in an ongoing custody battle with her ex-boyfriend and former cast member Thomas Ravenel. Like most custody battles, it’s been stressful and complicated, and it made its way into their relationship. “Just to see her go through that was painful,” Chleb told E! News, explaining that as a solution, he tried to alleviate the pain. “I just wanted to make her happy, but with her dealing with all this, she kind of didn’t realize what I was actually trying to do. She had too much going on in her mind.”

She has continued to post pictures of her son and daughter on social media. She still has photos of her and Ravenel, but no longer has any social media pictures up of her with Ravenell. There are also no family photos posted on her social media platforms.

What Will Happen Now?

The pair is continuing to star on Southern Charm, and are keeping their distance from one another. Ravenell also told E! News the status of their relationship, as their breakup in reality occurred months ago. The former item appears not to have a relationship on the show, and has continued it that way after filming. In fact, neither of them tagged one another in cast photos of the show’s current season. “I hope she does well with the custody battle, Thomas, all her friends. That’s all I can say.”

At the end of the interview, he admitted that the reunion show would definitely be something to see. “I’ve been thinking about that,” Ravenell said. “That’s gonna be pretty crazy.” The reunion is months away, and season eight will continue to be in full swing until then.
