Thomas Ravenel"s Lawyer Responds To The "Dubious" Sexual Assault Allegations Made Against The Southern Charm Star

The woman accusing Thomas Ravenel of sexually assaulting her mother has "dubious motivations," according to the attorney of the Southern Charm star. As we reported, real estate agent Ashley Perkins alleged that her mother Debbie Holloway Perkins was assaulted by the former South Carolina State Treasurer at the end of their date in December 2015. Related: Vanderpump [...] The woman accusing Thomas Ravenel of sexually assaulting her mother has "dubious motivations," according to the attorney of the Southern Charm star. As we reported, real estate agent Ashley Perkins alleged that her mother Debbie Holloway Perkins was assaulted by the former South Carolina State Treasurer at the end of their date in December 2015. Related: Vanderpump Ladies Support Lala Kent At Her Father's Memorial After her mother returned that evening acting "very withdrawn," Ashley said Debbie revealed that Ravenel "‘stuck his penis in my face.'" Ashley — who did not witness the alleged assault — also accused Ravenel of holding her mom's arms back and sticking his fingers inside her vagina and anus. It's reported Debbie signed a non-disclosure agreement with Ravenel in June 2016 and received $200,000 for her silence -- but Ashley, who did not sign the NDA, felt the urge to speak up again after seeing a commercial for Ravenel's Bravo show. In response to Ashley's claims, Ravenel's attorney, Richard P. Terbrusch, told People: "My client enjoys a certain degree of fame and unfortunately has become – unfairly – a target for an individual who has, in my opinion, dubious motivations." Ashley, on the other hand, doesn't think her motivations are anything but "pure." She told the publication: "I want to see Thomas Ravenel removed from Bravo and not just because of what he allegedly did to my mother but because of the negative comments he posts on a regular basis. Also, the way Thomas treats women on the show Southern Charm is totally disrespectful to women everywhere and promotes an antiquated attitude of the ‘good ole boys' network and ‘boys will be boys' which is too commonly accepted. I want to see not only Thomas removed from the show but for Bravo to apologize to the audience for allowing Thomas to remain on the show with his reckless, threatening, and demeaning attitude to women." Damnnnn. She's coming for him HARD! Will Bravo execs (AKA Andy Cohen) listen to Ashley's pleas? Will Christopher Plummer replace Ravenel on Southern Charm? Stay tuned to find out!

Southern Charm"s Kathryn Dennis Finally Weighs In On Those Sexual Assault Allegations Against Ex Thomas Ravenel

Breaking her silence. Earlier this week, Kathryn Dennis stopped by Watch What Happens Live for a visit with Andy Cohen.

As her Southern Charm costar and baby daddy Thomas Ravenel has recently been hit with two sexual assault allegations, the Bravo powerhouse made sure to ask the Charleston socialite to weigh in on the scandal. Related: Mercedes "MJ" Javid Announces Her Father's Passing Despite her past issues with Ravenel, Miz Dennis took a neutral stance when it came to his sexual misconduct controversy. Kathryn, who shares two children with Thomas, noted: "Well, I'm waiting until the investigation is complete before I comment on anything. And right now my kids are my main focus." Fair enough. In case you missed it, the 55-year-old scandalized politician has been hit with two separate sexual assault accusations. Back in May, a former nanny for Thomas and Kathryn's children reported Ravenel to the police. The woman, named Dawn, claims she was assaulted by Ravenel not far from his sleeping baby daughter. She supposedly told a "shocked" Kathryn, who is said to have confronted Thomas about the incident, further estranging the two parents. As for the second allegation, real estate agent Ashley Perkins has accused Thomas of assaulting her mother, Debbie Holloway Perkins, after the duo met on Tinder in 2015. Reportedly, Ashley's mother is unable to comment on the assault due to a nondisclosure agreement signed as part of a $200,000 settlement. Video: Luann de Lesseps Thinks She Might've Been Drugged Before Arrest! Ravenel's lawyer has since accused Ashley of having "dubious motivations" regarding the accusation. Huh. Southern Charm peer Craig Conover, who joined Kathryn on WWHL, also commented on the situation. The Bravolebrity added: "All I know is what I've seen in the media, so it really wouldn't be right for me to say anything at this point. I'm kind of just, I mean, I'm where everyone else is." Way to keep it vague, Craig. Nonetheless, the production company behind the Bravo hit has since waged an investigation into the troubling claims. The network relayed in a statement: "Haymaker, the production company for Southern Charm, and Bravo take allegations like these very seriously. Haymaker is conducting an investigation, and once all the information is gathered and carefully reviewed, appropriate action will be taken." We wonder what Thomas' current girlfriend Ashley Jacobs thinks of all of this?? Smh... [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Thomas Ravenel"s Former Nanny Outs Herself As The Other Woman Accusing The Southern Charm Star Of Sexual Assault

Two women have accused Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel of sexual assault — one of whom was his former nanny. The woman, who was referred to as "Nanny Dawn" (above, insert) on the Bravo series, told People that she is the one who reported Ravenel on May 7 for an alleged encounter from January 2015. Related: Pauley [...] Two women have accused Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel of sexual assault -- one of whom was his former nanny. The woman, who was referred to as "Nanny Dawn" (above, insert) on the Bravo series, told People that she is the one who reported Ravenel on May 7 for an alleged encounter from January 2015. Related: Pauley Perrette Hints "Multiple Physical Assaults" Led To NCIS Exit Dawn, who worked for Ravenel and his ex-girlfriend Kathryn Dennis as a caretaker for their two children, claimed that the former South Carolina State Treasurer came home from "an evening with friends" one night and tried to kiss her in the kitchen. She claims she rebuffed his advances and then went upstairs to get her jacket and keys. It was then Dawn alleges she was "corralled into the master bedroom and [Ravenel] shut the door behind me." She continued: "I turned around and he had his pants dropped, not wearing underwear. He was blocking the door. I was mortified, embarrassed, and scared… I was unsure what to do because Kensie was sleeping very close by. He proceeded to rip my clothes off, and I struggled to redress. I remember how worried I was that I may have to run outside in the January cold without clothes on and in an upscale neighborhood. I lived almost an hour away so I would have to drive home naked." Dawn didn't go into further detail about the alleged assault, but claimed she eventually got away from Ravenel, who allegedly apologized several weeks later and "promised it would never happen again." After struggling with the emotions that followed, Dawn says eventually told Dennis about the alleged encounter -- which only intensified the 25-year-old's already strained relationship with Ravenel. Related: Howie Day Busted After Allegedly Assaulting GF Dawn was then subjected to intense victim shaming from Ravenel and would eventually be replaced by a new nanny, Deidre Blair Politelli. Now with Ravenel being investigated for "first-degree forcible rape," Dawn said she wants to help empower other victims of assault: "Victims are reluctant to report crimes and inequality due to the fear of humiliation and retaliation. Perpetrators will not be held accountable for their behavior if we blame the victim. It's not the victim's fault. Abuse is a conscious choice by the abuser. No means no. Times up!" The 43-year-old also said she was empowered by Ashley Perkins coming forward to share the story of her mother allegedly being assaulted by Ravenel at the end of their date in 2015. Bravo and Haymaker, the Southern Charm production company, announced last week that they are investigating the allegations. The network said in a statement: "Haymaker, the production company for Southern Charm, and Bravo take allegations like these very seriously. Haymaker is conducting an investigation, and once all the information is gathered and carefully reviewed, appropriate action will be taken." Do the right thing, Andy Cohen.
