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Vanderpump Ladies Support Lala Kent At Her Father's Memorial After her mother returned that evening acting "very withdrawn," Ashley said Debbie revealed that Ravenel "‘stuck his penis in my face.'"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!

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.

Kim Kardashian Forces The Bulk Of Her Family To Undergo Media Training — That & More In This KUWTK Recap!

Well, this explains how the Kardashian-Jenners have recently [...] Despite having been on the air for a decade, the KarJenners have only JUST received media training. We learned this during Sunday night's KUWTK as Kim Kardashian West had her famous fam sit down with some media experts to teach them all how to deal with the press. Well, this explains how the Kardashian-Jenners have recently danced around confirming TWO major pregnancies in the family. Photos: The Kardashian/Jenners -- Then & Now! Thankfully, we got to see the media training used IRL as Kris Jenner sat down with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for a Hollywood Reporter profile. But we'll get to that later on... The episode also featured some sisterly tension as Khloé Kardashian butted heads with Kourtney Kardashian over a business opportunity AND Kendall Jenner got annoyed with Kylie Jenner while planning a party for their mutual friend. Ahhhh, rich people problems. We're sure we've Kaptured your attention, so let's get into the specifics (below)! As you surely know, Khloé and Kourtney workout together almost every day. When not together, the Kardashian ladies share their fitness routines on Snapchat. Thus, it wasn't surprising to learn that the sisters considered launching a professional fitness video for their fans. However, the idea eventually spiraled out of control, and the two ended up agreeing to work on a fitness line together. This forced KoKo to hit the pause button on her athleisure line with Good American. This, unsurprisingly, was a mistake as Kourt didn't follow through with the idea. At one point, Khloé complained: "Kourtney and I are a nothing brand right now. We're just not seeing eye-to-eye. Sometimes I love having a partner, but when you're just not in sync, it's a little frustrating." The sisters eventually sat down and discussed the situation. After Khloé told Kourtney she was planning to move forward with the Good American line, the mother of three gave her blessing and acknowledged that she isn't "the fastest-moving person." How self-aware of you, girl! Video: Kim Gets Personal About Losing An Embryo Following a successful media training session, Kimmie realized her whole family could use some grooming. So Keeks convinced Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, and momager Kris to sit down with two communication coaches. During the session, the coaches brought the heat as they asked the women to talk about everything from Kim's sex tape to Kendall's Pepsi ad to Rob Kardashian's social media outburst. The media experts forced the KarJenner ladies to do both group and individual on camera interviews so that they could see how their EVERY expression is picked up. Unsurprisingly, the coaches worked with Kris on how to handle her estrangement from Caitlyn Jenner. After Kendall admitted that she and Kylie "kept a lot" of Caitlyn's secrets, Kris noted: "There were things that happened that they didn't tell me, because they were told not to... I'm not resentful about it, it just makes me really sad. Because I'm a protective mom — I would do anything for my kids. And had I known some of the things they were experiencing … it just broke my heart, hearing some of that stuff." Oof. Kris also added that her ex's memoir is "full of inaccuracies." Oh snap. When the attention turned to Kendall's failed Pepsi commercial, the supermodel got quite prickly when discussing the controversy. On what went wrong with the ad, Jenner shared: "There were a lot of things that were blinding me. A lot of people I had faith in, a lot of things I had trust in... I have learned so much over the last four years of my career. I've learned that the only person that's ever going to truly, truly look out for me is me. It is really hard work." For being the most opinionated sister, Khloé actually did VERY well at handling the Rob questions. In an attempt to defend her brother's bad behavior, Kardashian dished: "Rob definitely wears his heart on his sleeve, and when he loves he loves really, really hard. With that being said, when he gets hurt, he hurts really, really badly." We ALMOST feel empathetic for the reclusive Kardashian brother. Next up, Kourtney tried (and horribly failed) to tackle questions about her dynamic with baby daddy Scott Disick. Essentially, Kourt just laughed through the whole process and gave up on actually trying to answer any Qs. Overall, the fam walked away with some news skills. Although Kylie was pretty much absent from this episode, she did cause some drama on screen. In fact, at one point during media training, Kendall stormed out because she was so annoyed with Kylie's hijacking of a birthday party they were planning together. Eventually, the sisters worked it out as Kenny explained: "It's crazy because Kylie and I, there's always something. We fought, and then she literally came over that night and helped me make a whole dinner for me and 20 of my friends. So we end up butting heads sometimes, but at the end of the day, she's my sister." Awwwwww. Kris was able to put her media training to use as she sat down with Abdul-Jabbar and answered questions about the "sexual nature" of her daughters' content. She also weighed in on their influence on plastic surgery trends: "If something … makes you feel better about yourself, then why not? I think everybody has to make their own choice." Good answer, Kris! Be sure to get more deets on Sunday night's episode by taking a peek at the recap video (above)!.....»»

Now there is another alleged victim -- and this one went to the police. According to multiple news sources, the Charleston PD have opened a preliminary inquiry after a second woman, who wishes to remain anonymous for now, sat with detective for 5 hours on Monday, in which she reportedly provided a very detailed account.
