The former Southern Charm star is painted as a hypocrite by his former employer Bravo and the network is demanding his suit be dismissed, on the grounds that the lawsuit he filed was part of a custody battle and they contend he filed the lawsuit in the wrong venue. highlighting they are not a parent, grandparent, guardian or even nanny of these children.
“If Ravenel actually wants to stem the public flow of information about this custody dispute, then his recourse is to stop his own public mudslinging in the pleadings he has filed in this case, stop posting photos and videos of his children on the Internet, join Dennis’s request to seal this Court’s records, and/or seek to restrain Dennis from discussing the case.”
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the network and the producers claim they’ve attempted to resolve this suit by agreeing not to air previously unaired images of the children on future episodes of the show without Thomas Ravenel’s consent – and they have no intent to do so in the upcoming season of the show.
Bravo points out that during the five years Ravenel appeared Southern Charm, he had no problem with the children being filmed, arguing that makes his recent arguments “ring hollow.”
“Ravenel’s actual interest appears to be to prohibit anyone besides himself from maintaining a public platform to discuss this lawsuit now that he is no longer a cast member on ‘Southern Charm.’”
Ravenel filed a lawsuit against Bravo and Southern Charm producers in November 2018 — demanding a judge stop them from broadcasting unaired footage of his children and demanding full custody.
On October 26, Kathryn Dennis filed for modification of custody and visitation after losing custody in 2016 over failed drug tests and a stint in rehab.
In his suit against Bravo, Ravenel says the network and Southern Charm producers “encouraged” his ex to file for custody against him to create drama for a storyline. And he alleges that Bravo and producers have unaired footage of his kids and ex talking about the legal battle and it was to be aired on the upcoming season.
