Fans may have been shocked that Thomas Ravenel made an appearance in the Season 7 premiere of “Southern Charm,” but Shep Rose wasn’t surprised.
On Thursday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Cohen commented that he was surprised Ravenel, who’s been vocal about his distain for the reality series after he was fired in 2018, let cameras film him.
“It makes no sense,” Rose, 40, agreed. “What it goes to show you is that he he freaking loved being on TV.”
Rose continued, “I know it. We all knew it. He loved the notoriety and stuff like that. So, he can he can bad mouth it all he wants but we know the truth. I mean he loved taking pictures with fans and all that stuff.”
In the episode, Ravenel filmed a scene with on-again, off-again girlfriend, with whom he shares two children, Kathryn Dennis.
Ravenel, 58, was fired from “Southern Charm” after his 2018 arrest for second-degree assault and battery against his children’s former nanny. However, he tweeted that he was done with the show before the network pulled the plug on him.
“I’m not doing the show anymore,” he tweeted in August 2018. “In the contract they have the right to fictionalize your story. They took advantage of me. I decided I’ve got too much to lose and informed them I’m not coming back.”
In 2019, he said the show was the “worst mistake” of his life.
He said in court documents pertaining to his custody battle with Dennis, “It amplified my past notoriety, showcased my wealth I accumulated through decades of hard work, and made me a walking target for men and women eager to get in front of the camera. Most importantly, it caused embarrassment and pain to my parents, my sisters, and my children.”
