Thomas Ravenel gave an exclusive 30 minute interview to Quintin’s Close-ups which is VERY interesting. He says that the reason that Kathryn’s failed drug test was made public is because despite both Thomas and Kathryn wanting to seal the record in their CHILD CUSTODY CASE (Silly me I thought records involving minor child were automatically sealed anyway) she REFUSED to seal them because the kids were essentially public figures. Does that include Saint because he was born on TV? Does that make him a public figure at BIRTH? Who the hell is this judge? And it is a WOMAN!
Thomas talks about having to change his lifestyle and be sober and drug free….eeerrrr he catches himself saying “not that I do drugs ” and then launches into how alcohol is legal and men get drunk and beat their spouses but the only thing harmed by smoking pot is a bad of Doritos. Yes, Thomas, and men also get drunk and intimidate women after an argument that began when a man nearly drowned his baby in a pool while drunk. HYPOTHETICALLY.
Thomas says he sent an offer to Kathryn and her attorney never responded. Actually, to be fair, Thomas has said several times that he has sent things to Kathryn’s attorney and gotten no response back at all in the mediation process. I find that odd if both of them want to keep this information sealed. Also it does appear that the leak about Kathryn’s failed drug test (contrary to popular belief no drug test results have been verified particularly with regard to the drug involved) came from Kathryn’s own attorney’s office according to FitsNews. who openly identified HER attorney’s office as the source of the leak.
Thomas is saying that he has been trying in mediation to do more than the mediators amount. He has submitted his financials. But he never says that she isn’t taking the amount he offers, he says he attorney does not respond at all with any sort of counter. This comment from Thomas in connection with the leak coming from HER ATTORNEYS is worrisome to me.
Thomas says that due to the age gap it is best for the kids to see their parents apart rather than together. They have made agreements not to talk to each other.
This dude just segued by saying back when I first interviewed you in 2013 (FOR DEALING COCAINE) you had just gotten out of prison and now you are a star! How did that happen? He says a local guy in Charleston tried to introduce him to a guy from LA named Whitney
and they went on a few dates and he wanted to do a documentary on Charleston and he sold a sizzle reel and basically when Whitney became a person on the show (fake guy from Weho) he dragged his mama along and then he no longer had any editorial rights and was just a producer in name only, like so may Bravo whores before him. Thomas said they tried to get one of his relatives on the show but she refused over 100 times. Then the reel leaked out and the Charlestonians saw Patti and backed out.
Fifteen minutes in Thomas starts to lose his sobriety. Suddenly out of no where he decides to deny sleeping with Landon. Jesus Christ what is wrong in the male mind when they think they can get away with this shit? NO ONE WAS EVEN THINKING ABOUT LANDON! The question was, “What does Southern Charm mean to you?” His response was essentially well there is a lot of editing involved to connected the dots an well I certainly didn’t sleep with Landon. UM. Hello. Every male friend you have went on WWHL and said you did. Landon’s “friend” said you did. Your own INSTGRAM ACCOUNT said you did. Isn’t that where all those photos came from?
Now he is saying he did “run into he in London????” Did he say London? How does one run into a cast mate in London? If your boyfriend was on a trip to London and just so happened to run in to a gold digging whore from your city, and the took a lot of photos together to “create a stir” and “it was all her idea” would you believe this? Seriously, he was totally believable and I was feeling sympathetic for the first fifteen minutes and now we have drug addled (in my opinion, based on my observations) Thomas back. WTF?
I don’t know anything much about Molly but I hear that Thomas does ALLEGEDLY and it is apparently related to ecstasy and I can see that. At first he was a fairly normal and now suddenly he his randomly stating how he didn’t fuck the dolphin without even being asked about that in any way at all. This is fascinating. Thomas says that Landon wanted to do it to get an argument going with Kathryn for airtime. SO YOU LET THE CUNT DO IT TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE MOTHER OF YOUR CHILDREN. HER AIRTIME IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN RESPECTING THE MOTHER OF YOUR CHILDREN.
Thomas says he likes to think of this as “Integrity” because he is getting paid a lot of money to generate some ratings . That is his definition of integrity. GENRERATING RATINGS AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR OFFSPRING AND A WOMAN HALF YOUR AGE.
Thomas SEEMS TO SY the producers gave him a script for his Words of Wisdom. But when asked he says the jumping out the window was totally him. He says the producers told him that Kathryn had approved the list for the dinner party including Landon. He said he didn’t want to go in there and argue that point. They assured him it was fine. Thomas also said that he invited Whitney and Patti to the dinner party and they both declined. Aw look at him sucking up to them. I do not understand why he does that. They are using his name to get Whitney’s sizzle reel about his mama on a TV show, they disparage his children through their mother CONSTANTLY, they send Landon in with her “special skills” and he still defends them.
This interviewer is AMAZING. With a bit of buttering up to Thomas he get him to talk about the night he ALLEGEDLY dropped the baby in the pool.
Thomas’ issue is not remorse for dropping the baby in the pool or DENYING he dropped the baby in the pool or denying any of the news reports. He says that was when he lost his anonymity. Now everyone knows him even internationally! He regales the interviewer with stories about how people recognize him everywhere! Which is basically all he ever wanted in life.
Wait, at the 23 minute point does he say that when he walks into a hotel bar in NYC with Whitney they ignore Whitney and focus on him? BWAHAHAHAH. I have a blind about Whitney that I will never post for personal reasons. Some things are too personally painful for me to get into here. And no the blind does not involve me but it involves something I refuse to ever discuss here.
My intel has said that the info in that blind that will never be posted has turned Thomas against Whitney. Which explains why Thomas suddenly launches into a story about protecting the mother of his children. Without the inside knowledge I wish I did not have, I would not believe this segment. But I do.
Thomas is totally being his real self right now with all these hypotheticals comparing his struggle for custody with gay rights and the rights of black folks. I should point out to my Canookian friends and others that he is comparing his struggles to gay rights and black rights to the interviewer who is black and whose sexual preference is not know to me.
Thomas finishes up his answer to how he is paying back society (seriously that was the question) by saying he is nice to animals and made a donation to an animal charity and Oh by the way, Whitney has a thing where he suggests people spay and neuter their animals two.
Is it me or is it amazing how he manages to bring up both of his lovers completely randomly? I fully expect when I click play for him to deny having sex with Whitney.
Then he dives right into Venezuelan politics, because he is not high. Nope nothing going on here. At the beginning of this thirty minute interview, Thomas was coherent and likeable and looked great . The things started going to hell. It ends with an idiot with a bright read nose. I totally get how Kathryn falls for this shit. I started to really fall for it myself the first ten minutes in… then I was like… WTF is he saying? And I truly believe he gave us some good “secrets” or for my readers admissions about filming.
With his bright read nose and constant itching of himself he repeats his original statements about being on the straight and narrow for his kids. As if he is making some sort of drinking and drugging sacrifice.
I love this interviewer. He needs to do the reunion shows on Bravo. He asks Thomas how he would describe himself in one word right now. Mine would be “Onsomething.”
After a very long think time his was “Philosophical.” BWAHHAHAHHAHAH.
Calvin ask for one word about Southern Charm and Thomas starts to drift off and he closes the interview. Watch it in full below.
Ravenel rants on about drug laws and how he drugs aren’t that bad and how prison was not that bad!
