After mentioning how some have allegedly laughed at the way in which Craig Conover does business and pointing out that he’s seen plenty of financial success after launching his pillow company, Thomas responded to a fan on Instagram who wanted to know if there was any truth to rumors claiming he might be appearing on the new episodes.
“None,” he replied. “Was asked again yesterday and responded with a resounding no! Yet #fakenews [redacted] will keep saying I was fired. They’re disgusting!”
As fans may recall, it was alleged last year that Thomas had been fired from his full-time role on Southern Charm after two women, including his former nanny, came forward with allegations of sexual assault against him. Then, after Thomas avoided jail time after pleading guilty to assault in the nanny’s case against him, rumors began swirling in regard to his potential return.
After a fan then suggested that Thomas could “name [his] price” because the “show is not the same” without him, Thomas insisted that when it comes to his future, he will never again be seen on Southern Charm, regardless of the money offered.
“My family did an intervention (I’m the youngest of 6 children) and said that they’d disown me if I ever did another episode,” Thomas explained.
Earlier this year, after rumors claimed production on Southern Charm‘s seventh season had been delayed, a Radar Online insider said producers were struggling to find new faces to bring the drama back to the series after Thomas’ exit last year.
“Without [Thomas Ravenel] they need the drama to come back,” the insider explained.
According to the report, the show has been lacking in drama since Thomas’ exit because they are no longer able to showcase the back and forth between him and the mother of his two children, Kathryn Dennis.
