Earlier this year, Bravo brought us Southern Charm, a reality show following the lives of Charleston, South Carolina’s elite. The show introduced us to a variety of characters including Thomas Ravenel. Not only does Thomas have a famous last name being the son of a Congressman, he also made for some pretty entertaining TV when he set out on a quest to settle down, find a wife, and run for political office. But, not before stirring up some drama first!
Initially we saw Thomas unsuccessfully peruse Danni Baird. When that didn’t work out, he quickly moved on to 22-year-old model Kathryn Dennis. Throughout the season, we saw Kathryn engage in “relations” with many of the cast members before finally ending up with Thomas and finishing the season with an unexpected pregnancy scare.
Since filming ended, the couple has continued their relationship, welcomed a daughter (Kensington born on March 24), and decided that Thomas will officially run for Senate as an Independent Conservative.
Thomas’s campaign is well underway as is filming for Southern Charm season 2. Despite starring in the reality show, Thomas maintains he’s serious about the potential Senate spot and making a difference for the people of Charleston. In fact, he just released a new political ad.
So, if you are a South Carolina resident who is willing to consider a candidate with a rocky past, who has starred in a reality TV show, and had a baby out of wedlock with a woman 29 years younger, then Thomas Ravenel wants your vote!
