Bravo Issues Statement Confirming Thomas Ravenel Will Not Attend the Upcoming ‘Southern Charm’ Season 5 Reunion Taping

“I do not like this ruling.”

Thomas Ravenel‘s future on Southern Charm remains uncertain, but Bravo just went ahead and cleared up one rumor that’s been circulating about the scandalous reality star. The entire ‘Southern Charm’ cast is schedule to meet up this weekend to discuss the highs –and the brutal lows— of Season 5, but they will be doing so without Thomas.

Bravo issued a statement on Tuesday night, confirming that Thomas will be absent from the upcoming Season 5 Reunion taping.

“The network confirms that Thomas will not attend the ‘Southern Charm’ Season 5 reunion,” a rep told The Daily Dish.

It is unknown if Thomas’ outspoken girlfriend, Ashley Jacobs, will be allowed to participate in the Reunion taping without Thomas.

As The Ashley previously reported, Thomas was recently accused of sexual assault by three different women. Last month, Bravo issued a statement informing fans that the network, as well as the production company behind the show, were looking into the accusations.

“Haymaker, the production company for ‘Southern Charm,’ and Bravo take allegations like these very seriously,” Bravo said in a statement to People magazine in May. “Haymaker is conducting an investigation, and once all the information is gathered and carefully reviewed, appropriate action will be taken.”

Thomas, who shares two children with ex Kathryn Dennis, has hired a lawyer and remained relatively quiet regarding the accusations. Numerous ‘Southern Charm’ cast members reportedly told Fits News last month that Bravo told the cast not to talk about the allegations against Thomas, due to the network’s and Charleston police investigations.

I’m trying to soften my image with a pink shirt and a pinky ring!

Last week, Tamara Tattles reported that Thomas will not be returning for any future seasons of ‘Southern Charm.’ (Bravo and/or Haymaker Productions have yet to confirm or deny this report, however.)

“He will definitely not be returning next season,” Tamara Tattles stated on June 1. “I’m told that the decision was made at the Bravo level.”

The site also reported that cast members will finally be allowed to discuss “The Thomas Situation” at the Reunion.

“Bravo is going to make their first public statement [regarding Thomas’ future on the show] at the Reunion,” the site reported. “At that time, cast mates will have the gag order lifted and be able to say what they want to say about the situation, if they choose to discuss it at all.”

The network is reportedly trying to figure out how to handle the very delicate situation.

“There is no precedent for this,” Tamara Tattles reported. “No one has ever been fired prior to the reunion before.”

  1. This guy is so repulsive on the show, for some reason he still thinks he’s an attractive, young guy, sorry buddy. The way he talks is so trashy, if he didn’t come from a family with money he’d be in the trailer park with Julian, Ricky and Bubbles.


  2. Ashley is a coked out slore. End of story. I hope I never hear her name again and I hope the next time I hear about rapist ravenel is when they send him to do real time in South Carolina state prison. He will find it much different from his stay in club fed. They are disgusting.


  3. I just started watching sc and in the SECOND episode thomas the creep grabs danni from behind and forces a sloppy kiss on her to which she is like “wtf was that dude back off”. He then goes on to tell his father that he’s not used to getting rejected and his dad answers “you know what would help that? Put a baby in her belly. And if it’s a boy baby I will give it 10 000$”. GROSS. Man if sb shows you who they are you better believe them.


  4. Can you imagine uprooting your life, moving across the country for a man who you thought was going to be your sugar daddy and give you a reality career . . . Then have it snatched away after you’ve humiliated yourself, become a pariah and completely ruined your reputation both personally and professionally? Haha! Thomas and Ashley are getting what they deserve.


  5. ’bout time. I hope Trashley is at the reunion. I’d like to see everyone have a chance to give her feedback.
