TamaraTattles first article about the sexual assault charges against Thomas Ravenel included news that a second anonymous woman in her 40s had contacted the Charleston Police Department to report a sex crime.
Today, the woman has identified herself as the night nurse, referred to as Nanny Dawn. who was the caretaker of Kensie and Saint for the first two or so years of Kensie’s life.
In January 2015, Dawn reported for work and Ravenel headed to dinner with friends. (This was twelve months before the alleged attack on the mother with the NDA When Thomas and Kensie were living on Charlotte Street.)
“I put Kensie to bed, and headed to the kitchen to make fresh baby food and wash and sterilize bottles,” she says. “That was when I heard Thomas enter the house just before midnight.”
Dawn explains that Ravenel turned off the lights, and she called out that she was working in the kitchen and needed light. At that point, she says Ravenel entered the kitchen and attempted to kiss her. She rebuffed his advances, but that didn’t stop him from assaulting her – despite her protestations and despite her repeatedly telling him “no.”
What followed was a violent attack – the details of which Dawn is choosing not to share in this forum (but which have been provided to Charleston police).
“I didn’t want to scream and scare Kensie, but I told him no repeatedly,” she says.
Dawn is telling her story in hopes that others come forward. With two attacks alleged within a twelve month period, it seems probable there were some other incidents between the one in January 2015 and the one in December 2015. Thomas was apparently on Tinder while Kathryn was pregnant with Saint and a month after he was born, November 9, 2015.
Kathryn observed the tension between Dawn and Thomas and repeatedly asked Dawn what was going on. Eventually, Dawn told her about the assault and that led to further strain on the already contentious relationship between Thomas and Kathryn. It also explains why Kathryn was adamant about getting rid of the nanny before the current one with the daughter who liked to hang around the house with Thomas. Thomas seemed to have a thing for the nannies or the nanny’s daughter. The latest one Thomas hired in violation of their parenting plan better watch herself.
Dawn also brought up the incident in 2014 when Thomas fell in the pool with Baby Kensie and then drunkenly attempted to attack Kathryn’s friend and invited guest to their home, Lauren Moser, while he was fully naked according to a police report filed by Moser. Thomas was ultimately not charged in that assault which also occurred in the house on Charlotte Street so she didn’t feel like he would be charged for the assault on her either.
Here is my previous post on the Lauren Moser situation from when it came up on the reunion (filmed June 2016) of that season’s filming. If you recall, Kathryn got a call while in Jekyll Island that Lauren was suing Thomas for assault and Thomas blames this as the reason he lost his bid for senator.
Landon also insists that Kathryn had to leave Jekyll Island because her hair stylist was suing Thomas. Kathryn flips out about that because she doesn’t want anything brought up about that night because I believe that was the night that Kensington was allegedly dropped in the pool by Thomas.
I thought I reported on that story by I can’t find the post so here is what allegedly went down. Kathryn had invited her friend and stylist Lauren Moser over to the home on Charlotte Street where she was living with Thomas. Apparently, there was some bad blood between Thomas and Lauren. Lauren says she was apprehensive about being around Thomas when he is drunk.
Thomas was apparently irritated that Kathryn was spending a Friday night at home with her best friend and he was stuck taking care of the baby. He stormed around the house and out to the pool where the two women were and fell into the pool with the baby according to Moser’s police report. He handed the baby to Kathryn and stormed into the house. Lauren was behind him on the stairs and he slammed the door on her, hitting her and causing her to tumble down the stairs into some bushes.
When Lauren went to gather her things, and say goodbye to Kathryn and the baby, Thomas went upstairs and got undressed and before she could leave he came back down the stairs yelling at her to get out while completely naked.
On the reunion tonight Landon, brilliant political mind that she is will claim that this was the reason that Thomas did not win his bid for senate and it is all Kathryn’s fault. This is apparently the reason that he lost the election with less than 4% of the total vote. Thomas himself said to the press after his miserable showing that Kathryn was supposed to support him in his defense of the assault case filed by Moser. He also said he should have started his campaign earlier. I suppose that was Kathryn’s fault as well.
Kathryn did leave Jekyll to go and try to get Lauren to drop the assault charges against Thomas. Lauren was not willing to do that.
This alleged drunken incident with Kensington is probably going to be brought up again in the custody battle. That would explain Kathryn screaming to Landon not to bring that night up EVER.
It is interesting to note that there is always an element of misogyny and shaming that thread through many of the allegations against Thomas. In the case of Nanny Dawn, she says that Thomas would “butt-dial” her, and she could overhear him telling others that she was doing her job poorly, that she was fat, and that she was “poor white trash.” according to the interview on FitsNews.
Dawn took a lie detector test in January of 2017 which she passed. She wanted to have proof in the event that Thomas continued attempting to smear her reputation in Charleston. She apparently offered the results to the Charleston police and volunteered to be retested if they so desired as long as they tested Thomas as well.
So Kathryn was aware of two of these assaults for sure and likely knew of all three yet for some reason she did not bring this information up in the custody suit as far as we can tell. Clearly, Thomas has something on Kathryn that is equally as bad. He already blindsided her in court with drug testing that he was prepared for and she was not. Why did she not disclose this information to the judge at that time?
The shit deepens for Thomas. This is usually how it all begins.
