SOUTHERN Charm’s Kathryn Dennis admitted she’s “off the wagon” after rehab as she copes with racism scandal in the new trailer for the upcoming season.
Fans will also see her deal with the news that her ex Thomas Ravanel is expecting a child with another woman.
The Southern Charm cast is back for a seventh season, which is set to premiere on October 29, and Kathryn seems to be dealing with quite an amount of drama amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Newcomer Leva Bonaparte immediately targets Kathryn, as the India-born Persian claims she wants to see “change in this little southern town of mine.”
As they’re sitting together for dinner, Leva tells Kathryn: “Kathryn, you’ve spent your entire life living in a bubble of white privilege.”
Later on in the trailer, Leva confronts Kathryn over FaceTime about the time she sent a monkey emoji to radio host Mika Gadsden and claimed it was offensive to be called “white people.”
Leva tells her: “When I first saw the monkey emoji, I was just like ‘what hell, Kathryn?'”
An upset Kathryn then tells her: “Like in my heart, I know I’m the furthest thing from racist.”
But this is just one of four drama plots for Kathryn, who also has to deal with the rumors that she’s “off the wagon” as she’s seen drinking an alcoholic drink.
Dennis lost full custody of her children – daughter Kensington Calhoun, 5, and son Saint, 4 – in 2016 and entered rehab after testing positive for marijuana.
The mother of two is visibly annoyed as she mocks a hater’s voice: “Oh my god, what is she doing? She’s off the wagon!”
This all happens as Kathryn finds out and reveals to Danni Baird, whom she later has a fight with, that her ex Thomas is expecting a child with another woman.
She tells the blonde during a party: “Thomas got a girl pregnant and she’s having the baby.”
In fact, back in July, Thomas and his ex-girlfriend, Heather Mascoe, welcomed a son.
The two are co-parenting successfully but there’s no chance that they’ll be in a relationship again.
Thomas and Kathryn share two children.
Thomas was axed from Southern Charm after his former nanny accused him of sexually assaulting her.
The reality star was also accused of sexually assaulting a separate woman he met on Tinder in 2015 and reportedly settled with her for $200,000.
And to top it all off, Kathryn will also have to watch as the statue of her ancestor, John C. Calhoun, gets taken down during the Black Lives Matter movement in Charleston, South Carolina.
Calhoun was the seventh vice president of the United States under Presidents John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson.
He owned dozens of slaves and was vocal about his beliefs that minority rights did not extend to enslaved black people; he believed that slavery was not a “necessary evil” but instead a “positive good” that benefited everyone.
However, things shouldn’t all sour for Kathryn this season after an insider told The Sun she and football player Chleb Ravenell are “going strong” and their love story will be included in the new series, which will also see a number of new characters take to the small screen.
Joining Kathryn, Craig Conover, Austen Kroll, and Shep Rose will be Leva, Madison LeCroy –who will be involved in a love triangle – and John Pringle.
