YouTube Kathryn Dennis
Southern Charm Season 9, now airing on Bravo, marks the first season since the series premiered without one of its leading ladies, Kathryn Dennis.
Even though Dennis is no longer on the series, she still receives a lot of support from her former co-stars, especially her OG costars Shep Rose and Craig Conover. During a panel discussion at BravoCon 2023, they talked about Dennis and revealed that they filmed season nine with her.
“We actually love Kathryn,” Conover shared. “Shep and I actually filmed with her this year. I don’t think it was supposed to happen, but we did it, and I think they did it to do us a favor because we love them so much.” He said he was confident that the season would include footage, but that “probably won’t be the case.”
“The point of my statement is that we would be happy if she came back,” he added. “I think the door is always open. I think she is working on herself and still has a lot of work to do before she comes back. But I hope she’s okay and I know a lot of people here have had contact with her recently.” In fact, he said Austen Kroll “talks to her as much as he can,” as do others in the cast.
Conover’s comments came shortly after a car registered in Dennis’ name was involved in a collision at a school. “We love Kathryn,” Conover concluded. “But we just hope that she sees things through.”
