SouthernCharm-Thomas-Ravenel

Thomas Ravenel is speaking out in the wake of his recent victory in the custody battle with ex-girlfriend and Southern Charm co-star, Kathryn Dennis. 

As exclusively reported, Ravenel was awarded joint custody on June 9 of his two kids, Kensington Calhoun Ravenel, 2, and St. Julien Rembert Ravenel, 7 months. The abrupt custody shift was triggered by a pivotal drug test, resulting in a brand new custody agreement.

EXCLUSIVE: Kathryn Dennis’ Failed Drug Test Scores Thomas Ravenel A Huge Victory In Custody Battle 

Both Ravenel and Dennis were tested for drugs and alcohol last week, in submission to a stipulation required in their ongoing custody proceedings. AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively reported, marijuana and cocaine were found in Kathryn’s system, and Ravenel’s results came back clean.

AllAboutTheTea.com spoke to Thomas Ravenel to get his reaction to his recent court victory.

“I do not believe Kathryn’s lawyer leaked any confidential information to the media.” Thomas tells AllAboutTheTea.com in response to the reported leaked drug test results.

The politician turned reality star had not seen his kids for 12 weeks when he appeared in court last week to negotiate a custody arrangement with Dennis. Ravenel shared his thoughts about the time apart from his children.

“I used to see them every other week for three days, and then it went down to every other week for two days,” Thomas explained. “But before court, I had not seen them for twelve weeks!”

A “joint custody” agreement was struck, and following the proceedings, the Ravenel children were immediately handed over to their father. Thomas reunited with Kensie and Saint, after a twelve week separation.

“I gained joint custody of my kids on Thursday and I feel so blessed to see them after 12 weeks,” Thomas said.

The doting dad took to social media to share his joy since gaining joint custody.

Ravenel confirmed the custody agreement hammered out between him and Dennis.

“The agreement is, we’ll each have 50/50 custody. One week with her and one week with me,” Thomas said, adding, “This is temporary, until the case goes to mediation and is approved by the judge.”

A strict set of conditions was put into place, that must be adhered to by both Thomas and Kathryn, whenever the kids are in their care. The core of the agreement states that custody would be split, with unsupervised joint custody to Thomas, and supervised joint custody to Kathryn. Thomas agreed to allow Kathryn’s parents to supervise her time with the children.

The following is the criteria set forth in the consent order, agreed upon by Thomas and Kathryn. Each parent must adhere to the agreement when the children are in their care:

  • Thomas was granted unsupervised joint custody of the two children, Kensington and St. Julien.
  • Kathryn was granted supervised joint custody — Thomas agreed to allow Kathryn’s parents to supervise her time with the children.
  • Custody will be split 50/50, with each parent alternating a week of custody. 
  • No drug use will be permitted.  
  • No paramours are allowed between certain hours in the home of either parent.
  • No abuse of prescription drugs will be permitted. 
  • No drinking alcohol is allowed.
  • Each parent MUST refrain from any alcohol or drug use, 12 hours prior to picking up the children for their designated week of custody.

Thomas was clearly overjoyed to be reunited with his young children, and gave us a peek into the sweet scene.

“I have my kids for a week and I am overjoyed,” Ravenel gushed, adding, “It’s been 12 weeks, so I was nervous about how Kensie would react to me.”  

Thomas continues, “I was concerned that she [Kensie] would be standoffish or angry with me, but she was deliriously happy when she saw me. I just want to show her the love and attention that she needs and deserves, as her father.”

Ravenel believes that if he and Dennis failed to resolve their current predicament, it would have negatively impacted their kids down the road.

The co-parents head back to court on June 27 for mediation, where the agreement will be reviewed and signed off by a judge. This action will finalize the joint custody agreement.

      • Reelin4real

        IIRC, it was rumored that she was using whilst pregnant with her son. He was, literally, swimming in drug soup for months, pre-birth, if this is true talk.
        Time will tell. He looks pretty alert in the pics, IMHO. I think he’s a born lil’ charmer, and am rooting for his Pops to come through proper now for all of them.

        • Babson_Chick

          rooting for dad too

  • Babson_Chick

    hope they get this resolved for the kids sake – kat shouldn’t keep them from him when she gets mad/doesn’t get her way

            I wish lol but can’t take anything else. had oxy for 1st 5 days.
            thanks – you’re so kind 🙂

    • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

      After this, I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets primary custody and she just gets visitation. She screwed up BIG time.

      • Babson_Chick

        agree big time

  • Gibney13

    That little Kensington is one beautiful baby! I hope the 2 parents can truly put their kids first and not just pretend for the cameras.

  • MidwestMiddie

    From the photos, this man is one Happy Father!!! His kiddies agree.
    IMO, only a miserable woman would keep her children away from their father for 12 weeks.
    Shame on her! The children just might be better off without her. Has she considered that?

    • Semi

      Of course he’s happy he just hurt her – that seems to make him happy.

      • MidwestMiddie

        By keeping his children from him for 12 weeks it appears she is the
        one who enjoys hurting him. And, she took the drugs on her own ……………..

        • Semi

          Like we know that full story? About the kids? Like he wasn’t doing anything wrong during those weeks?

          Took what drugs. Prove it.

          • Tatiannasm

            The failed drug test on her part and the passed one on his is the proof.

          • Semi

            Proof of what? That he used HORSE SHEARS to trim every hair on his body? He didn’t take the same test she had to take. How did he know the test was coming up and she didn’t? They tested her body hairs and one of his head hairs, allegedly. (And remember, we’re only privy to third party stories.)

            Head hair results can be altered with shampoo, again allegedly.

            So don’t get your ‘facts’ from gossip sites that btw are friends of Thomas’ and accept it as gospel truth.

  • aemish

    awwww!!!! say what you will about Thomas Ravenel’s personal life but you would be hard pressed to find a more doting daddy on the face of this earth!

  • aemish

    memo to T-Rav: let Elizabeth advise you on where to take the kids for haircuts.. for pity’s sake that place probably doubles as a gas station

  • MsM

    Well we know Saint is definitely Katherine’s!!! Kid looks just like her! I think it’s safe to say that T-Rav DOES love his children and in spite of his playboy persona, he DOES seem to be a good father. Given Katherine’s instability as a human being, both children are probably safer with their father until she can prove she’s clean and functioning unimpaired.

    • BigBrothersMother

      Do you by chance remember The Hamptons episode of Seinfeld? For some reason I keep thinking of it. LOL!!!

      • MsM

        I missed that one – going to have to look it up now!!! lol

  • Bryan

    those are cute babies =)

  • TartLemon

    I wonder if Kathryn’s parents will do all the work or require her to step up to do the parenting.

    • MsM

      I think they’re going to sit there and watch her do whatever with the kids. Her parents haven’t controlled her up to this point in her life, why start now?

      • Reelin4real

        She’s prob’ly controlled them with her hissing kitty bit since she hit puberty. They are amazingly still alive, but their minds must be mush by now from her onslaughts.

      • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

        Maybe their love for those babies will make a difference. One can only hope.

        • MsM

          It would be nice but I don’t hold out much hope for it – Kathryn doesn’t come from the same type of world T-Rav does.

  • Ronnie

    Wonder if Patricia is going to have a victory party for TRav?

    • TartLemon

      I hope so. He sure does glow in those photos.

    • aemish

      Who would be tackier — her for throwing it or him were he to show up for it? lol

      • Ronnie

        A tie!

    • Reelin4real

      With ponies!

      • Ronnie

        Lololol !!

  • Mazer

    I am thrilled she can no longer throw a bitch fit every time she can’t tell him what to or what not to do, where he can or cannot go, by using the children to manipulate him. Maybe she will have to start paying her own rent. The court will decide how much money he pays for support of the children, AND how much she will be responsible for supporting the children, it’s not all on him. Hopefully now she realizes he is not responsible to support her also. Just the kids, Kathryn, not you! She blew it all up in her face, positive drug test.

    • prisspot

      Karma is a beautiful thing!!

      • Reelin4real

        Yup! Check and Mate, Mz.K.! & here they had you thinkin’ you were the only one playin’ chess. Bish, pleez. Mwahahahaha…
        This is SO much better for the lives of those sweet littles! 🙂 VIVA!

    • Tatiannasm

      She will have an epic fit considering at the reunion Thomas said the max S.C. allows is $2500, that a lot less than what T-Rav was offering.

  • TartLemon

    GET A JOB KATHRYN! Oh, let’s see…. verified illegal drug use, legally documented may kind of diminish those choices now.

    You know, if Kathryn had played the game without requiring the courts to get involved, she would have been set up with a house, nanny, decent nontaxable income and a free babysitter to do her partying. But, NO! She had to push the envelope and look at her now. Dumbass!

    • MsM

      But Tart, she’d have to have SKILLS to get a job!!! Snorting coke and birthing babies aren’t exactly career skills…

      • prisspot

        You forgot, laying on her back. I bet she considers that a “job skill”.

        • Reelin4real

          Well, she does work her thighs…(mwahahahaha…)

    • prisspot

      He had offered her $4,500 a month in child support for both children, with him also paying for 80% of their medical and education expenses, but she wanted more. That’s $54,000 a year, tax free!! Now, with custody split 50/50 there’s a good chance that she won’t get any child support. Idiot!!!!

      • CNN

        Kathryn’s greed led to her supervised joint custody agreement. She had it so good but blew it. She’s not the brightest bulb.

        • BigBrothersMother

          She has expensive taste. Her greed definitely cost her.

        • Weeds1

          I agree but can’t give him a pass in that department either. They’re both immature. She’s still young enough that she’ll hopefully outgrow it. They have to get this right for their kids because if you don’t get that right, nothing else you are successful with will matter.

      • Reelin4real

        Sometimes it seems Fates step up to aid the innocent. Now the Courts will always be involved in this, for the childrens good, and, I’m betting, for T’s as well. He/they needed legal protection in this in dealing with the crazed mare he studded.

        • prisspot

          Kathryn seems to bring out the absolute worst in Thomas. Every time he has shown his ass it’s with her prodding. I sure hope these two babies bring about a positive change in him, as well. As for Kathryn, I hope she gets the help she needs, but something tells me she will just continue to spiral downward. I really fear for the children if she’s left unattended with them.

      • Semi

        Doesn’t that show she was NOT after his money?

        • prisspot

          No, she was infuriated with “only” $4,500 a month. She was asking for tens of thousands per month. She also wanted him to divide up his property and assets as if they were doing a marital property settlement.

          • Semi

            So says who, Thomas?

          • Tatiannasm

            Go back and watch and listen to her complain about how $2500 and $4500 wasn’t enough

          • Semi

            The law would agree with her. The kids are to live in the same way no matter which parent they are with. If she made more money than he did, it would be the same.

            He chose to knock up someone who was barely legal, twice. He knew what he was doing. Now he’s trying to cheapskate away.

          • Tatiannasm

            If 2500 is indeed the max in S.C. like Thomas said, than he’s not being cheap, he even offered more than that. Courts expect for both the mother and father both contribute to the household. If she had a job $4500 a month would be more than enough. Plenty of parents raise their kids on less than what she wants and he’s offering and they make it work. Kathryn didn’t earn the right to live the life that Thomas has, those kids are babies they won’t know the difference. The money thing is just an excuse it sounds like.

          • Tatianna Marie Sanchezm

            That’s total b.s., no they are not that’s how life is. You can’t expect for two households to be the same especially when one has no money. She’s not entitled to that they were never married didn’t really have a relationship. Plenty of people live that life everyday and they’re all right. You’re not entitled to what you haven’t earned.

    • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

      For the kids sake, it’s a good think she was a dumbazz. I’m glad she was outed so maybe they can still get things straightened out before any real damage has been done.

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    The fact that her visits ARE supervised and his aren’t – speaks volumes!!!

    • MsM

      But her parents are doing the supervising? I doubt they’ll keep that close an eye on things.

      • shayvoe

        If they don’t it will fall back on them, and they could be removed as the supervisors.

        • MsM

          I’m actually surprised that the judge allowed the grandparents to supervise. Down here in FL when a parent tests dirty and is ordered supervised visitation it’s usually in an office or visitation center with an objective third party present.

          • shayvoe

            Right, but she doesn’t have supervised visitation, she has supervised custody.

          • MsM

            Right, and I’m surprised the judge gave it to her. She can snort when her parents are there just as easily as she can when they’re not. (Honestly, I’ve never seen a case of supervised custody. Ever. lol)

          • prisspot

            Me either!! I’ve known several people who got supervised “visitation”, but never supervised custody.

          • shayvoe

            I agree….I’ve never heard of it either. Even if she didn’t do drugs at her parent’s house, she can certainly do them when she goes out and then comes home to her kids. It makes no sense to me either, but I would hope that she will still be subject to random drug tests.

          • BigBrothersMother

            I’m hoping for random drug testing as well. It’s in the best interest of those children.

          • Reelin4real

            Most definately. She has outted herself and made herself known far and wide.

          • Reelin4real

            I think Thomas has a LOT of say in all of this, and is taking a bit of a parental approach with K, hoping she learns a LOT from this, and they may get along better in the future.
            Being a bit of a “Southern Gentleman”, ol’ Thomas is being, IMHO. Taking the high road. Props to him if this is correct.

          • shayvoe

            Agreed he never wanted her to lose her kids…he just wanted equal time with them. He is being a lot nicer than she was or ever would have been if that drug test hadn’t jumped up and bite her in the azz.

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            I would assume that they will be doing further drug testing and I hope that if she isn’t clean there will be deeper ramifications. I would guess the next step would be to remove the kids from her completely but who knows. smh

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            I’ve known of grandparents supervising. I used to teach and it was commonplace for the grandparents to move into the home with the children in these types of circumstances.

          • MsM

            Thanks for the info Violet!! I was asking around the office today and none of the other therapists had ever seen that happen either so it’s good to know that it can happen, evidently it just doesn’t happen down here. lol

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            In my experience it happens when there appears to be a lack of supervision on the parents’ part. If there is any question of physical abuse, that’s when the kids are removed.
            I wonder if Kathryn has been ordered to go to rehab and complete parenting classes. It seems like that should be a non-negotiable.

      • TartLemon

        I doubt Kathryn will be doing much keeping an eye on the kids. Her parents will do the majority of the work.

      • CNN

        Kathryn’s parents don’t have a choice but to supervise with diligent eyes or Kathryn could lose custody all together

        • MsM

          Do you think they really care? They haven’t cared about their daughter up to this point in her life or she’d be making much better choices and she’d be able to adult. They might love their grandchildren but their inability to parent properly created Katherine as we see her now and it’s unlikely they’ll be able to grandparent much better. Just an observation.

          • BigBrothersMother

            I don’t remember much at all about her mother from the show other than her giving Kathryn prenatal vitamins before she was pregnant. I remember the granny really well. LOL! WOW!!! Her father I remember and thought it was weird that he wasn’t concerned about Thomas pursuing his daughter for many reasons. I concluded it was a strange family.

          • MsM

            I think Katherine is from a Holler family of some sort up in the hills of Virginnie!!

          • BigBrothersMother

            Exactly. I kept thinking some Crazy Calhoun had a thing for a hillbilly and this is what happened.

          • shayvoe

            I wonder if she related to Leah Messer Simms Calvert Messer?

          • MsM

            You know shyvoe, that’s a very good question!!!!

          • Reelin4real

            I don’t think it’s ever correct to blame parents for all of their ADULT childrens horrible choices/actions, tho’ I do recall that awful encouragement she received from her G’ma (wonder whether maternal or paternal…anyone know?) about their decades different age difference was no big deal, as she had had the same type of arrangement. Right there I got the “hicks from a holler” red flag ’bout the redhead, and she has proven me more than correct, IMHO.
            I would like to hear from/see her parents now that all of this about their family is so public, but if I were them, I’d be layin’ low myself.

          • MsM

            Sadly I see too many people Katherine’s age who can’t adult – that doesn’t come by choice, it comes from how they were parented as they were growing up. jmo And I agree, there’s a BIG wrong side of the tracks thing going on here.

        • Chickpea16

          Looks like Kathryn will be living with her parents again.

        • Elizabeth Fisher

          Don’t her parents live quite a ways out from Charleston?

          • CNN

            Who knows, all that matters is they better be on hand while those kids are in her custody or she’ll be in contempt of the court.

          • BigBrothersMother

            We should all take guesses as to what date this will occur. You know it’s coming.

          • CNN

            I don’t see her passing any future drug tests so yes, it’s coming.

          • shayvoe

            Yep…in the sticks about a 45 min drive from Charleston.

          • mickey710

            I never thought of that, but you are right, good point. Kathryn is most likely having a fit. If her parents have to be around to supervise during her entire time with the kids, that means every other week Kathryn, the Nanny and the kids have to pack up and move to her parents’ house for 7 straight days and nights! Kathryn hates staying at her parents’ house! It’s much too dull and boring, for that party girl.

      • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

        I’m sure the nanny will be there too.

    • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

      I hope her parents give her a swift kick in the azz. This situation is all kinds of wrong and someone needs to force her to get herself together. STAT.

  • shayvoe

    Kathryn played a very dangerous game and lost. You don’t use you kids as tokens in the game of “give me what I want, or you can’t see your kids”.

    • BigBrothersMother

      Kathryn definitely overplayed her hand.

    • Semi

      How do you know what she said. Maybe it was “stop partying and cutting off our electricity or you can’t see your kids.” Or maybe he didn’t see them and blames her. How do you know. Don’t state things as truth if it’s just a guess.

  • Just a jersey girl

    Good for Thomas. I hope Kathryn puts the drugs aside and realizes she was given a big break by be allowed supervised joint custody. In NJ she would have lost custody immediately. Been given supervised visitation once a week, and been subject to drug testing. She would have had to complete parenting classes and gone to rehab, before she could have even petitioned the court for unsupervised visitation or joint custody.

  • HearWhatISay

    paramours ???

    • aemish

      Girlfriends and boyfriends. Hallelujah!

      • HearWhatISay

        thanks

  • CNN

    Congrats AATT on another insider exclusive. Your coverage of this saga has been bar none. I love the pics Thomas posted of the kids. Kathryn never post pics of the kids doing activities, so it’s nice to see Kensie in the pool and smiling. Thomas may be in his 50’s but he seems to have more energy than Kathryn in her 20’s. I am glad that the court is finally advocating in the kid’s favor.

    • shayvoe

      Coke will do that to you, it will give her lots of energy when she is out at night doing it, but the kids are in bed then. Then the next day, she will have to sleep to recover from the night before, when the kids are awake. Vicious cycle!

      • CNN

        That’s so sad and explains the lack of parental engagement from Kathryn’s side. She probably sleeps in a dark drug den all day and leaves those kids to be cared for by a nanny.

        • Reelin4real

          That’s why it’s OK in her world to abandon her lil’ daughter and distraught nanny in a snit fit whilst heavily pregnant.
          Those children, to her, are mere pawns, and she misplayed her game. Glad they have a loving father who can more than provide for them to fall back on. Props to him! They all look so happy without her around!

          • BigBrothersMother

            It may be a huge relief to the kids. All of sudden to be in a less stressful environment without their mother’s histrionics must feel great.

          • Semi

            Like the histrionics Thomas showed at his own dinner party?

          • Semi

            She didn’t abandon anyone. She was not on house arrest. And that was a Tv show.

          • Semi

            Little kids love their parents. They don’t think deeper than that. Of course they are going to light up if Dad is hardly ever around.

      • Reelin4real

        Yup, like lil’ Jace talking about his mother sleeping all day and being in her room all of the time. Junkies have the same MOs…sadly.

  • Tiffany

    Thomas seems to be doing well. Glad I did not see nanny dawn in any of the pictures.

    • SassyMcAsspants

      She was probably taking the pics, lol.

    I’m sorry, but you all are snowed. I think she was setup and didn’t know there was going to be a drug test and he did. Doting daddy. Yeah right. He knows politics and how to spin a story. There’s no way that he took a “surprise” drug/alcohol and didn’t test positive, for at least alcohol. Just watch the show to see that. He’s spinning this, and she’s a dumb 20-something woman who tried to play hardball and is getting burned. Also, just because she doesn’t post pics of her kids doesn’t mean she’s not a loving mother. It means she’s not using her kids to gain fame. Now all of a sudden he has the pics to prove he’s a doting daddy, and Kathryn’s being labeled a drug user, very hypocritical for him. Not saying she’s great, but she’s just doing what he’s doing, but look who got caught and who, all of a sudden, is clean. Those babies deserve better.

    • BigBrothersMother

      The court deals with facts not speculation. They’re going with the drug test results which is fact. It’s difficult when you get in the system. I’m hoping Kathryn grows up and gets the help that she needs so she can be a great mom to her children.

    • HearWhatISay

      Did Thomas give her a joint to smoke before the hearing?????????

      Well…I guess that would just prove that he is much smarter than her. She was playing checkers and he was playing chess. I doubt she will be using that go to phrase she always uses when she thinks she is winning anymore.

      • BigBrothersMother

        Dumbest thing you can ever do is underestimate your opponent.

        • shayvoe

          Yep…one thing Thomas is not is stupid. He didn’t become a self made millionaire being dumb.

          • Reelin4real

          • Weeds1

            My Dad always said that too!

          • SMDRN66

            Well…he’s not self made. That’s family money. While I 100% agree with everything people are saying about Kathryn here, Thomas is just as bad. He’s a drunk and a coke head. There were no winners in this. Those kids need two good parents. Too bad the court didn’t request a hair sample from him. Maybe they should order both into rehab, parenting classes, and be subjected to weekly and random drug tests. Then again, Thomas is going to pawn the kids off on the nannies anyway, so at least they’ll be safe for now.

          • CNN

            Thomas owns over 12 shopping centers that he’s developed personally. So although he comes from generational wealth, he’s still a hard worker.

          • shayvoe

            He WAS a coke head…that was 8 years ago and he went to rehab, and is not currently doing coke, so no, he is not just as bad as someone who is currently doing coke around two babies. Kathryn, as well, “pawned them off on the nanny”, because you can’t parent two kids while doing or coming down from coke. They may have done a hair sample test…we don’t know that.

            As far as him being self made, he is. He borrowed the seed money from his father to start his business, and that is where he made his millions.

          • Semi

            How do you know what he does. There is one drug test and some of you are labeling Kathryn a full fledged addict and Thomas a choir boy.

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            This is what I was thinking too. T and K both need to be subjected to random drug testing for the long haul. Those kids are beautiful and sweet and deserve a nice childhood.

      • Heather’s bangs

        Wonder what all those gullible Kathryn defenders on RT are saying now, huh, Shayvoe? Glad there was a handful of us who could see the obvious truth all along!

        • shayvoe

          Hi Heather….I got banned…lol. Tried to post this morning…and I was blocked! They won’t tell me what I did or why. Azzholes!! I have been posting there for 5 years, and I was dying to be able to post after all this info came out to those KD franatics. I have to post from my phone as they have blocked my IP address. It’s too much trouble and not worth the effort.

          • Reelin4real

            Fascist Nazi scum tactics, that kind of blatant censorship be. Pffttt…

          • shayvoe

            The only thing I can think of, is somebody responded to me asking where I heard about the custody. I said I really wanted to give the site that got the scoop credit, but I said it would be deleted before I could even finishing typing it. They then responded back asking me if it was AATT…I tried to respond and their post was deleted. They left all of my posts up though with all the juicy details. I wasn’t banned then. It was not until this morning I saw I was banned, but they left up my posts, so I have no idea why and they won’t answer my emails. It pissed me off that they left my posts, but banned me, so I went back and deleted them all, which oddly, I could do. They don’t want anyone whose posts there to post here…or discuss what they read here over there…yet they left my posts up…so phuck um!!

          • CNN

            RT is a bullshit site with stale tea. They posted that bullshit Tamra Tattles story about Yolanda being fired and TT admitted she was lying and they never took it down. That told me a lot about RT’s credibility. Yet this site post scalding hot tea and they’re afraid to post their stories because in my opinion, this site is in direct competition to them and is giving RT a run for their money. They seem very threatened.

          • shayvoe

            Exactly!!

          • Weeds1

            Says a lot about TT also.

          • Heather’s bangs

            That is RIDICULOUS!!! What in the world is going on over there? Can’t believe that they banned you! You have been a valuable contributor for so long! Oh well, their loss — I love Mary and will continue to read everything she writes, but they also have a new writer that seems to just enjoy being contrary. Plus, they have so many posters that just want to troll the other posters rather than snark on the shows, so you’ll probably enjoy this site a lot more anyway!

          • shayvoe

            Thanks!! Glad to see you post here.

          • BigBrothersMother

            This is a great site. You’ll like it. Most people here are reasonable and stick to talking about the topic. You’ll get a few now and then who don’t know how to behave. They generally don’t last. I flag any personal attacks against anyone that I see and leave it up to the moderators. Believe me, I am no hall monitor but some people show up at times to troll and start fights. I have zero tolerance for that.

          • shayvoe

            I saw some of that Saturday night 😉 and was happy to see it was taken care of. I have periodically posted here since the site went up with some of the RT posters who all got banned and came here. Doc and I posted on RT for a long time together. I don’t see very many of the other posters who came over here then, here anymore though. All new names really. I stayed with RT for the long term posters I have been posting with for years, but RT does not care about longtime posters or value them at all. To not even have the courtesy of answering my email to tell me why they banned me says all I need to know.

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            I’m sorry to hear that they didn’t even respond to you. You’ve been over there forever and you’ve contributed to their site.

            Hi Birdie…good to see you!

          • Roses

            I love Marys writing too, she should break off and do her own blog. Their new writer loves Brandi and Kenyuck and is a terrible writer. I wasn’t the only one to point this out, but I got blocked anyway:(

          • Heather’s bangs

            Yeah, you know who I am talking about! I’ve stopped clicking on her stories — maybe, even if they don’t listen to us, they’ll start noticing their decrease in clicks! I would follow Mary to any other blog site if she left. She’s hilarious!

          • Marguerite

            Oh no. I enjoy our conversations and see mostly eye to eye. Can’t think why in the world you’d be blocked. Could that person who was harping about alcoholics be responsible. I didn’t see where you did any wrong in the thread. Glad to know you are here.

          • shayvoe

            Hi Marguerite….I don’t know what I did wrong either. Happy to see some of you guys post here though!

          • Roses

            They blocked me too! Mainly bc I said that their new writer (Marenah?) sucks (which she does) I was a regular for two years. I guess they have enough traffic where we’re disposable to them. It’s too bad, I really liked chatting with some of those folks.

    • HappyGirl!!

      Yeah right!! Most people know they have a court date and what can happen?!! I’m certain that Kathryn had a lawyer with her also!! She hasn’t even seen Thomas in 12 weeks but some how he gave her marijuana and cocaine (which she had been rumored to be doing even while pregnant) yet we’re the idiots!! Kathryn is a loser and an unfit mother! If you are going to court and know you are being accused of doing drugs (which she knew all this time she was being accused of that) you don’t do drugs!! Why even take that chance?? Smoking while pregnant, doing coke while pregnant!! She obviously didn’t care if she was caught!! Probably gotten away with crap all her life (spoiled brat). Finally caught up with her. Guess we now understand all those crazy mood swings!!

      • Reelin4real

        Spot on!

      • Weeds1

        It was a surprise drug test…I’ve worked in Courts for DCF and it is done all the time. However, I think TRav knew in advance.. No alcohol?? Yeah, right.

        • Maria Lane

          I’m sure his lawyer told him to clean up. I’m sure her lawyer told her and she thought…I’m the Mother I can do what I want.

          • Weeds1

            The whole idea of a surprise test is that it’s a surprise. TRav didn’t have wine or beer the night before? In what universe? I’m surprised they tested for alcohol.

    • CNN

      Who gives a shit if she knew or didn’t know? She’s a mother using cocaine and frankly, if she didn’t know about the drug test, even better that this fact is now exposed. No mother can abuse cocaine and parent effectively. She needed to be exposed. Period.

      • BigBrothersMother

        ITA. Facts are facts.

        • CNN

          I don’t get all the lame excuses grown people are making to pardon the fact Kathryn is an addict taking care of little kids. The girl needs rehab and therapy.

          • shayvoe

            I can only assume these people are very much like KD and feel some sort of kinship with her, or they are not grown people and are part of the sugar baby, get rich any way you can, because they deserve it generation. No other explanation makes sense.

          • CNN

            You’re exactly right. Their moral compass must be comprised to support a druggie harlot like Kathryn.

          • Weeds1

            Harlot????

          • Semi

            LOL

            Right. Anyone who thinks this is a set up must be damaged goods.

            You really show your azz with a word like harlot.

          • Tatiannasm

            My understanding is that it was Kathryn’s team that wanted the drug test, and it wasn’t just the blood test, they did hair tests as well. Stop harping on the fact that Thomas drink too etc, did it occur to you that as a man his age he realized that because he was taking her to court he stopped or slowed down his partying and that’s why his test came back clean of drugs, alcohol is irrelevant. It was a drug test not a breathalyzer so if he had drinks to night before who cares. As a young mother who recently gave birth and has two small children she should have tested positive for nothing unless she had a legally prescribed reason too. Neither Kathryn or Thomas have been acting as parents should, but don’t paint her to be some poor victim, her choices are her own, if she didn’t use drugs she wouldn’t have tested positive for them!

          • Semi

            I will “harp on” what I want as long as the site says it’s OK. If you are not the site owner then kindly don’t tell me what to do, thanks.

            If you don’t like my “harping” stop reading my posts. It’s simple.

            Your “understanding” comes from gossip sites that are friends of Thomas’ – so that’s gossip not fact.

            What Kathryn said is they tested her body hair and his head hair and that Thomas used horse shears to completely shave his entire body. If that doesn’t make you suspicious of a biased system or someone dodging something, nothing will.

            You think he hasn’t done any drugs or alcohol? He’s drunk ON the show. But whatever. He hangs out with porn stars. Great environment for kids. But whatever. Think what you want, but you seem very biased against Kathryn. And I don’t care. You’re going on block anyway.

          • Tatiannasm

My bias comes from the fact SHE HAS DRUGS IN HER SYSTEM AT SOME POINT! Believe me if Thomas’ test had came back positive I’d be biased towards him too. I never said Thomas didn’t drink or do drugs, only that he might of had the good sense to detox when he knew he was going for custody. Kathryn is a very smart girl she should have known better that’s all. As far as Thomas having a heads up, that’s just a rumor until proven otherwise. People always claim conspiracy in things like this so I’ll be skeptical.

          • Reelin4real

            May I use the term “sugar baby generation”? SO fitting on so many strange levels with them thar young ‘uns nowadays.

            Use it with my blessing ;)!

          • Weeds1

            I’m 65 so I don’t fit your hypothesis. I’ve lived long enough to know there are more facts that can drip out bit by bit that have in the past, allowed me to have another perspective. they’re both wrong, always trying to one up each other. What TRav says and does with his buddies isn’t cool either. Like letting them urge him to have a paternity test when he knew he’d already found out the child was his. What is that?

          • Semi

            How about fairness. You even slander anyone who defends her. What’s your reason for liking Thomas? By your standard we should judge you a fellow felon. I don’t believe that, but that is your standard.

          • BigBrothersMother

            I’ve seen some people blame the stress of dealing with Thomas for her drug use. Fortunately, courts don’t like excuses. At best, Kathryn is an immature spoiled party girl. She also had a DUI and a disorderly conduct charge against her when she was younger. One would think that would have straightened her out.

          • CNN

            I agree and it’s all baseless excuses from her fans. Kathryn is not married to Thomas and Thomas does not want her, so any stress she’s experiencing is manufactured in her own head. Much like the spectacle she created at the polo match. She tries to manipulate and control every situation involving Thomas and this kids, driving herself into maniac hysterics over nothing.

          • Semi

            Thomas is manipulative and controlling. Did you see Thomas’ dinner party. That is a spectacle. Jumping out a window. That is a spectacle.

          • Semi

            Thomas has a felony and more. He’s drunk throughout much of his Tv show. You don’t seem worried about that.

          • Weeds1

            Who says she’s an addict? She a recreational user which is bad enough but don’t make it worse than it is. And I don’t beliebe for one second that TRav wann’t tipped off. Or had his lawyer bring it up to the judge as a good idea. And it would have been if both were caught.

          • CNN

            How do you know she’s a recreational user and not an addict? I live in SC locally and that’s not what I’m hearing.

          • Weeds1

            Gossip has a way of being exgagerated. I’m sure she uses but when I’ve seen her on the show, she seems alright. Not twitching, itching or any other outward signs.

          • Semi

            If you don’t know one way or the other you really should not repeat it as truth.

          • BigBrothersMother

            If Thomas had tested positive I would be all over him, but he didn’t. Katharine’s drug use as a mother of two very young children has a negative impact on them. That’s the reality.

          • Weeds1

            That’s true but I don’t think TRav is clean. I just find that hard to believe.

          • Semi

            He seems like a drunkard but the Kathryn haters seem fine with that.

          • Weeds1

            I’ve noticed. And she’s a slut for sleeping around but men aren’t!

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            I don’t disagree with you but she should have been smarter. She knew she was going to court to fight for her kids. She shouldn’t be doing drugs period. Ever. To do them during a custody dispute is asinine. I’ve been sticking up for her since season 1 but drug use is a deal breaker.

          • Semi

            Maybe people are against libel and slander.

          Kathryn is not pregnant.

      • SMDRN66

        While I 100% agree with you, Thomas is a coke head as well. He’s no better than Kathryn. So he abstained to get it out of his system to pass the test. Big whoop! They should have done a hair test. They should both get some rehab before being allowed to be near these children.

        • Maria Lane

          It is possible for someone to go out and party when you haven’t had your children for 12 weeks. So he should sit home for 3 months but she can party while she has had the kids for 3 months?
          I’m the same age as Thomas. If my grandkids are coming, I’m not out partying. If I have no minor children in my home…I can do out and do as I please.

          • Semi

            Maybe she didn’t want the kids around his partying.

        • aemish

          A hair test!! You just threw THAT hat into the ring!! That would certainly prove interesting!!

    • Reelin4real

      Nope. None of this biz about K being an illegal substance user/abuser is new news. And many, IMHO, incl. myself, have been around long enough to see the signs of much trouble in that young womans psyche to know that she is far too unstable for the good of those children she chose to bring into this realm unsupervised.
      Thomas is of an age to settle down and work on his remaining legacy. I’m not the only one whos lifestyle changed dramatically once I chose to be a parent, and I would bet to find, with time, that this will be the case here.
      Hopefully, K will learn from all of this, and work to better herself and her outlook for her children too, if not for herself. She has to get a clue as to how long life can be, and stop burnin’ herself and others out.
      I wish them all well, and am glad the Court got involved in this.

      • MsM

        Well said Reel!!!!!!

      • SMDRN66

        Thomas is just as much of a drug user as she is. Sadly, neither are good for those kids. He makes a great show about being with his kids, but the truth is that the nanny has them all the time. I know Kathryn didn’t do much because she let the nanny take over ,but at least she was still present. Thomas has been a father and still hasn’t grown up yet. He’s still out hitting on 20 year olds. He still has the frat-boy mentality. And if he really wants to be a good father, he needs to tell Whitless, the Crypt Keeper, and Cameron to keep their mouths shut on his family situation. I’m sure they’re all ready to smear Kathryn and bury her on live TV. He needs to realize that she is still the mother of his kids, and both have to learn to get along.

        • CNN

          You can’t say Thomas is just as much a drug user as she is. His test came back negative and Kathryn’s was positive. Thomas has made some mistakes in his past but he’s clearly cleaned up his act and wants the best for his kids.

          • Weeds1

            Some mistakes? Has Kathryn been to prison? No!

          • CNN

            Kathryn has been to jail for being a drunken mess and disorderly conduct. And there is video of her smoking while pregnant and text messages of her talking about doing drugs while pregnant.

          • Semi

            Where is the video and where are the texts.

            D & D is not a felony drug conviction.

          • BigBrothersMother

            So are you saying high risk behavior is fine unless you get caught by the authorities?

          • Weeds1

            No. I’m saying if he was tipped off and had no drugs in his system, that’s foul. They’re both idiots. If Social Services administer surprise tests, he may yet be caught, They don’t inform the court of when the tests are administered. Just the results. At least in fl.

          • BigBrothersMother

            I don’t think anyone would disagree that if he was tipped off and that was the reason he was clean that it would be wrong. Both idiots should have been told by their lawyers to be sure they could test clean just in case the judge ordered a drug test. My understanding is that a lawyer is never 100% sure what a judge will do until he does it in the courtroom.

        Great post, totally agree.

        But no one mentions Thomas who is a convicted felon or who said he likes the smell of cocaine or who gets in bar brawls. Suddenly he’s Father Knows Best?

  • Reelin4real

    I am SO glad for T-Rav and his children, and his family and all in his circle. 🙂 I know I’m not the only one who knows and testifies to the facts that both children to love and care for and a few decades of the partying lifestyle can make one change ones lifestyle and choices for the better and for the greater good. I am truly hoping this will be the case with him. He looks so happy, as do the littles, and boy, is his lil’ guy gonna charm ’em with those eyes! Good call on getting the hair out of the lil’ gals eyes, too. I’m rooting for him.

  • Pandora403

    If Kathryn has an ounce of brains she will show the court that she is a fit mother or is at least trying her best to become one. Going to rehab or even out-patient therapy would be a good start. Then clean drug tests. Going back to school or getting some type of employment, other than the TV show, would also look good. However, I suspect she might be happy with this joint arrangement. If she wants to continue her partying ways she has 2 weeks out of the month where she can have all the fun times she wants. I also suspect that Thomas is going to do all he can to be a good father to those kids. My only fear is if he’s strong enough to really stay away from Kathryn when it comes to their bedroom antics. The last thing they need is to add baby #3 to this situation.

      • This is going to be GOOD!

  • Kay

    What about child support?))

    Kathryn…. It’s just so sad what she’s doing to her life

    • BigBrothersMother

      With 50/50 custody it should be interesting. The smartest thing she could do is put herself in rehab.

      • shayvoe

        Yep…it would show the court that she is taking this seriously. Somehow, I doubt she will.

      • Semi

        But not Thomas?

    • prisspot

      Thomas says she gets paid 6 figures for doing this show. I’m sure she blows through that pretty quickly, but with 50/50 custody, she could end up with no child support.

      • CNN

        I doubt the court will order any child support since custody is split and if they do, it will be drastically cut from $3,100 Thomas gives her on his own.

        • prisspot

          Well, she said that he plays “checkers”, but she plays chess. Guess she wasn’t as good at that game as she thought. Checkmate!!

        • Semi

          The $3100 she said he doesn’t give her?

          I think he let her live in a house he owns, rent free and he paid the utilities and maybe shut off the utilities when she didn’t obey him.

          I think that’s what he counts as $3100.

      • Semi

        So, why does it not occur to anyone that could be his aim. That and messing with her.

        • prisspot

          I think her drug use has been well known for a long time. Also, if Thomas had that kind of power he could have kept his own self out of prison.

          • Semi

            There is always someone who has more power.

    • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

      Kathryn’s wages should be garnished & at the very least held…as a way to correct the way she prioritizes her spending.

      She complained about not having electricity heat & air. It’s time to learn that those are things that come before handbags & shoes…with drugs being completely off the table.

      She should pay her own bills without excuse & drop the agenda to be part of the support package.

      • Mazer

        I totally agree with you, I have been saying that all along.

      • CNN

        Well said. I agree.

      • Weeds1

        I don’t think she’s in need of a Britney Spears type of deal. If she’s not crazy, the court can’t do that.

        • CNN

          I read somewhere that mental illness runs in her family and Kathryn may be on antipsychotic drugs.

          • BigBrothersMother

            If that’s the case, then she really can’t mix alcohol or any other drugs with those. That’s a recipe for disaster.

          • CNN

            That would explain her extreme paranoia and irrational outbursts.

          • BigBrothersMother

            Yes, it would. She could be schizophrenic or bipolar. Wow!

          • CNN

            I think you hit the nail on the head here.

          • Weeds1

            Still wouldn’t cause loss of custody unless she stopped taking her meds ala Britney.

          • BigBrothersMother

            Do you believe that Katharine should get a pass on the positive drug test?

          • Weeds1

            Hell no! But I don’t for one minute believe he’s clean. And if he allows his “friends” to trash her publically, he’s a lousy father. And vice versa.

          • Sick of Rino’s

            That’s odd. I know for a fact she comes from a very distinguished political family and the name goes back several generations. Her family is not wealthy but extremely well respected. Everyone seems to forget she is a young, impressionable girl who was attending college when she met a man old enough to be her father.

          • John Henry Dill

            Considering she was with 3 possibly 4 men on the show, which one are you talking about?

        • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

          The court can establish an order for child support. All that has to happen is a child support order within the legal limits of garnishment & if Kathryn does not comply it goes the same way of most other child support cases… she will deal with enforcement. Enforcement means losing drivers license & being in comtept of court with a warrant for her arrest…until the arrears are paid.

          The limit is 30% of wage earnings & plenty of money as a means for Kathryn to pay for her own bills & stop playing her game.

          Her wages just for the show are at least 10 times over the poverty limit for a family of 3. No excuse for her to cry poverty.

          • poloponies

            Since custody is now joint, he probably will be required to pay less in child support than if she had full custody.

      • Semi

        Wages garnished? For what. There is no law against buying baby furniture.

        If the utilities are in Thomas’ name he might have shut them off. Maybe that’s why.

        • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

          For child support.

          • Semi

            That’s rich.

        • Beth

          Snarky thinks the government should tell you how to raise your children. smh

        • John Henry Dill

          She said he only paid the rent

      • K-Ku

        Just from her Southern Charm earnings, she should be able to put a fully functioning roof over their heads. It seems she can’t manage her money.

        • prisspot

          She blows it on expensive clothing, shoes & accessories…and drugs ain’t cheap!!

      • Beth

        So I guess all drug users (I guess that would probably include pot smokers in your book) should have their wages garnished?
        Or just Kathryn?
        Should we drug test everyone to make sure their priorities are straight?
        Should all parents’ spending habits be monitored to make sure their priorities are straight?
        What if someone blows all their money on movies or music? Or food, or clothes?

        • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

          Don’t guess about my book.

          When a parent claims they can’t supply basic household utilities when making $250K they may not have any clue how to manage finances.

          Child support orders are very common. I’m still collecting child support arrears btw with my children in their mid-20s so I know all about the situation.

          Yes cases move to garnishment when a parent (male or female) plays the game & has no clue how to prioritize income while they have kids to support.

          Kathryn is no special snowflake that should be exempt from maintaining a household with her own income. It’s quite a substantial income. If she uses the excuse that she has no electricity heat or air…it would serve her & the children well for a court to establish an order. Not to take money away from Kathryn…to help Kathryn help Kathryn. Left to her own devices her money is otherwise gone.

  • Joanne Lewis Silvagni

    It is just so sad what the Ravenel money can buy. It is too bad that it can’t buy Thomas sobriety, maturity, and real friends. I do not believe that Kathryn’s test results were not tampered with. We have had 3 seasons of Thomas’s behavior on film. There is no way that he could have passed a drug test. Alcohol would have been present. I believe that he has more alcohol than blood in his veins. His children will be the ones to suffer. What a sad sad state of affairs when money can buy you friends, custody, and drug test results.

    • BigBrothersMother

      When did you see Thomas do drugs on film? I must have missed that.

      • John Henry Dill

        It never happened.

    • CNN

      Your accusations are baseless. Please read up on this case and see who’s doing the drugs and it ain’t Thomas.

    • shayvoe

      Money will not buy you the ability to get a drug test tampered with no matter how much you have. They go through a chain of custody and there are many, many safeguards, and checks and balances to ensure the tests are accurate, not tampered with, and the specimens, as well as the results ONLY go to the people in that chain of custody. The results are sent in a sealed envelope and go only the the person authorized as the recipient of the results in the chain of custody. If the person tests positive a re test is automatic. It is virtually impossible to tamper with a drug test or for the results not to be accurate.

      • Semi

        It was not all that sealed, was it. Here we are reading about it.

        • John Henry Dill

          He went to prison, his money didn’t keep him out of that.

    • John Henry Dill

      Alcohol only stay in your blood 24 hours. They took a hair sample, he is clean with drugs.
      She carried the baby and allegedly used while carrying him. Keeping a baby from their dad is not OK. She should enter rehab and get healthy. Her kids are counting on her

  • CB

    i totally believe in the blood test results.. and say what you will about Ravenel personally you can plainly see he’s madly in love with his children. Catherine is UNSTABLE and SPITEFUL… thank God a court intervened… very happy for him

    • Weeds1

      he won’t be alcohol free…it’ll kill him. As for drugs, she’s not the one who went to prison for it.

      • CNN

        Please stop making excuses for a mother who abuses drugs. The facts remain that Kathryn was the one that tested positive for cocaine last week, not Thomas.

        • Weeds1

          But he went to Federal prison for selling drugs. I think he knew about the testing because he disn’t test positive for alcohol. When have we seen him not drink?? Hinky. And I’m not excusing her behavior, I’m saying she’s not the only one.

          • CNN

            Thomas went to prison 8 years ago. Long before he had kids. Since then he’s gone to rehab and cleaned his act up. I can’t say the same for Kathryn, who clearly is a drug abuser.

          • Weeds1

            He’s a drunk! He hasn’t cleaned up!

          • Weeds1

            Every time I see him he’s drinking. At home, out with friends, etc. Time will tell but for the sake of those babies, I hope they both get and stay clean. And stop disparaging each other or allowing others to do it for them. Those babies will grow up and read all this stuff. 🙁

          • Beachgirl

            Alcohol is the worst and most dangerous of all drugs.

          • Beth

            this drives me crazy – someone who drinks regularly is “cleaned up.” Why, because he had to go to rehab years ago for something else? He drinks too much. He’s not “cleaned up.”
            I’m sure he’s a good father to his children, and I have no reason to believe Kathryn is anything but a good mother, but they both need to clean up their act and grow up, but Thomas isn’t going to change much at his age. He’s a geriatric child.

          • Maria Lane

            Cocaine only stays in your system for 2 or 3 days. Can’t blame that one on Thomas.

          • Weeds1

            True, and she’s an idiot for doing drugs. Although when I was her age, I indulged. No kids yet, though. But for me, TRav not having alcohol in his system is a red flag. When hasn’t he had alcohol in his system?

          • shayvoe

            He did not go to prison for selling drugs. He went for use and intent to distribute, which means he was sharing it. Intent to distribute and selling are two different things. That was 8 years ago and he went to rehab. We see a snippet of his life. I doubt he drinks all day and he plays polo a lot which he wouldn’t be able to do if he was drunk. We see him drinking when he is out with friends, we don’t know what he does in his day to day life.

          • CNN

            Thanks for clarifying, Shayvoe.

          • shayvoe

            YW CNN!

          • Weeds1

            According to FindLaw, distribution/trafficng are lumped together. There are variables, i.e. sales to kids, the amount and type of drug, etc. But they don’t make a “sharing” distinction.

          • shayvoe

            If you care to know the real charges, you can google and article that was in the Charleston paper shortly after he was sentenced, which states her never sold drugs, that he shared it with friends, which garnered him the intent to distribute charge. His dealer was charged with sales and also went to prison. A millionaire and a man with a dealer, does not need to sell drugs.

          • Semi

            Why split hairs. Their point was Kathryn is not a felon. Thomas is. He also said he loves the smell of cocaine.

          • John Henry Dill

            That was 8 years ago. That has nothing to do with today. Today she is failing drug test and accused of using while carrying the baby. His test was clean, hers wasn’t

          • Semi

            From the Post and Courier, Charleston, May 15, 2008

            ‘Ravenel in September pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine. Authorities say he used and shared the drug but did not sell it, and after-hour parties were common.’

          • Agreed! That’s the past and Thomas is a changed man today. Obviously he loves his kids.

          • Weeds1

            I’ve read that he didn’do the hair test.

      • Sick of Rino’s

        Because the results of the blood test were being questioned in court, Katherine could not defend herself on the reunion show. It’s more than obvious that Katherine loves her children and even more obvious that Thomas is a spiteful man who throws moronic women in Katherine’s face. Katherine does take a sedative for anxiety and Thomas knew that and used it against her. Poor stupid little Landon should tread lightly because Karma catches up with those who think they can verbally abuse others.

        • John Henry Dill

          She has always had outside boyfriends. That’s why they are questioning if he’s the father. She slept with Whitney and lied about it in the beginning.
          I do think she loves her kids, but I also think, if she doesn’t get help, she’s going to lose them. A kid needs both parents if possible, so I’m praying for her to get the help that she needs to keep her kids. The other stuff was just drama and good TV, the kids are a different story.

      • John Henry Dill

        That was years ago. He passed a hair test which goes back 6 months. He’s clean, she’s not. She used while pregnant. This is much more serious than a reality TV show.

  • Whatdidyousay

    I am glad.
    I am not a Thomas fan but Kathryn is really off the charts when it comes to her ‘me’ time. IMO

  • Bethsabe David

    Hey evil trolls, why some of you rejoicing and name calling over a young mother doing drugs? SMH! This is all round sad for the kids. T Rav looks very happy but notice he did not say anything negative about KD above. Take the hint haters. If you feel bad for the kids like many claim they do, then stop the ignorance.

    • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

      It was refreshing to see Thomas behaving like an adult. I’m glad he’s starting to take parenting seriously.

    • Semi

      He does not have to if he hires shills to do it for him.

    • Amy Bee

      Eh, Kathryn brings it on herself. She’s kind of horrible, sober or not. Dumb of her to force Thomas to take him to court to see the kids, then fail a drug test.

    • Sick of Rino’s

      I just wish someone would smack that smug off Landon and Cameran’s faces. They are disgusting to the max and poor Landon seems dumb as a box of rocks. I also think it is ironic that Landon’s father told her she had to get a job and stop expecting him to pay her bills. This is the same Landon who mocked Katherine for wanting support from Thomas. Landon has a silly school girl laugh, a very limited vocabulary and that dumb “Deer in the headlights” expression when she is asked a question to which she doesn’t have an answer. It would take me all of 5 minutes to become bored to tears being around her.

    • Countess Creme Brûlée

      I’m sure the reunion will be an eye opener for the viewers. Thomas is old enough to keep his act clean in order to help raise his children. Alley Kat tired to use them as pawns to get Thomas to marry her and gain access to his money. I’m glad Thomas wised up. Had he married her she may have continued her drug use.

      • Sliceo’pie

        You sound like a complete simpleton – you honestly think everything is that black and white? Please – what planet do you live on? They’ve both made horrible mistakes – His include : In June 2007, he indicted on federal cocaine distribution charges – He was at least 45 years old. He resigned in disgrace from his position as South Carolina Treasurer. I bet my fav pair of shoes he’s not sober – maybe he’s taken a break from the coke but he’s still out nightly and drinks like a fish. She’s a silly girl – 24 years old. Think of all the mistakes you made in your early 20’s vs those most people make in their forties/fifties. He still makes decisions like a 25 year old..
        The fact you defend this scum is sad.

        • Countess Creme Brûlée

          The fact that you defend the Moncks Corner Maw Maw is quite pathetic. She’s not a young girl, she’s old enough to have graduated from college but dropped out. She’s a bar rat hanging on to older men for their money and drugs. The baby boy looks like he’s got some health problems, probably associated with his maw maw’s bad habits. Any woman old enough to crawl in bed with a man and have two children should be a protective mother, instead she’s in rehab trying to get clean. She’s not fit to raise those children with the poor choices she’s made. If she really loved her children she’d forego the drugs and alcohol but no, she chose substance abuse over her young babies. She needs to make something of herself instead of being known as the Charleston whore. She’s well known for dropping her panties for any man that has money. Yes, she’s white trash and an embarrassment to her own family. She has family that does not claim her. Bless her heart.

    • Just Saying

      Absolutely! I wish I had seen this earlier – I just said about the same thing – had the girl’s back. Kathryn could have raised her children in a charming environment with a dynamic dad and zany mother – it COULD have worked, but they both had too much crazy spill out….

Wow – I tried to really have the back of that young woman despite her curious ways – but after this? I think their father might just need to have the primary custody and get Katherine the help she clearly needs.

    Why are you all attacking a young mother that is still a child herself? The frontal cortex (the judgment making area of the brain) doesn’t reach full growth until 25-26 years. Thomas is in his fifties! He served time for the use of cocaine! He has made one idiotic mistake after another. Who would ever approve a commercial for a state campaign with half naked women drinking and dancing around him. Dennis was staying at the country plantation raising there child and he would complain (when he randomly came home) that she wasn’t fast enough, and asked why she couldn’t live up to his mother. Can you say POS?
