I have tiny tidbits of news about three different Bravo shows that I’ve been holding on to waiting for more info. Since I was out of pocket most of the day today replacing my DVR box, I thought I’d just put them up.
When it comes to Southern Charm, I feel the same way about Kathryn Calhoun Dennis as I do about Kim Richards. In fact, I don’t think I have ever actually posted that KCD was in rehab shortly after the reunion. If I have not, the short version is that both Thomas and Kathryn were given drug tests by the Charleston Court System when they were determining custody. Thomas somehow miraculously passed. Kathryn did not. Thomas was granted primary custody and it still appears that he has the kids the majority of the time.
I did post about the gang filming in Key West in what will probably be the second to the last episode. I heard from people at Aqua that Kathryn was drunk just like everyone else. I’ve also been hearing that she went off the rails not too long after returning from rehab. Kathryn has told me that is not truthful information. So I will include that Kathryn has denied having issues since returning to Charleston.
The reason I bring this up today, is that I was up very, very late last night. To be honest, I am really struggling with my depression and anxiety. the last two and a half months or so have been quite difficult. As is his practice, Thomas posted on Instagram in the wee hours and took it down shortly thereafter. The gist of his comment was that he didn’t understand why a mother who says that her kids mean so much to her and that her all she wants is to spend time with them “can’t manage to pass a drug test.”
I have sort of softened my opinion of Thomas lately. His post didn’t seem angry or blaming. It seemed like a post written by a guy who might have had a drink or two and was sad. I’ve heard from sources that I trust for months that Kathryn has not been passing her drug tests. I know there are sites that like to list what she is failing for specifically. I am not wanting to get in to all of that. So please leave info you may have on the subject out of comments. The situation appears to be that Kathryn is struggling with addiction. I believe, and it felt to me last night that Thomas believes that Kathryn loves her kids a lot; however, her addiction is still controlling her. I am never going to judge Kathryn for her struggles or condemn her. I really want her to beat this. She is very young. I am profoundly sad for her and her children and for Thomas. I would probably not have even posted about this, but it will all be discussed in the upcoming season. I heard it was a very rough season for her and she alienated many of her allies who were only trying to help.
As it stands today, I asked if Kathryn was still able to see the kids. She posted a photo today of her with Kensie but you never know when the photo was taken. I was told by more than one source that she does have supervised visitation. I am deeply hopeful, that those visits will motivate her to fight her way out of her current situation. I wish her the strength to get herself back to a healthy place. I hope she fights her demons and wins. I’m sending her love and light tonight.
