Dennis falls in love

In a recent interview, the 27-year-old reality star admitted that she fell in love with Price the moment she met him. According to ET Online, the two originally met at a dinner party in Nashville and were introduced by mutual friends.

Upon meeting Price, Dennis realized that he was the perfect match because he checked off all of her boxes. Not only was he a hard worker, but he also shared her odd sense of humor.

“I never believed in love at first sight, but if I could imagine what it feels like, this would be it,” Dennis shared.

Dennis added that she feels very safe with Price, even when she is at her most vulnerable. She also revealed that she met up with her Southern Charm co-stars Craig Conover and Austen Kroll shortly after meeting Price.

Conover and Kroll immediately knew that Dennis was in love, especially after she admitted that she was “going to marry” Price. Fans may recognize Price for starring on Season 13 of America’s Got Talent.

Inside Dennis and Price’s long-distance relationship

The only hiccup in Dennis’ new romance is that Price lives in a completely different state. Price is a resident of Nashville, Tennessee, while Dennis spends most of her time in Charleston, South Carolina. Although there are hundreds of miles between them, the Southern Charm star does not think the distance is a big problem.

Although they cannot spend every day together, Dennis makes frequent trips to Nashville to spend time with her boyfriend. Fortunately, Dennis enjoys spending time in Nashville and does not mind the mileage.

Although Dennis is excited about her new romance, fans will watch her date a different man in Season 6 of Southern Charm. During production for the new season, Dennis was seeing a man named Joe Abruzzo, who has made a name for himself as a politician in Florida.

The relationship did not last long, and some of Dennis’ co-stars felt like Abruzzo reminded them of her ex, Ravenel. Abruzzo confirmed that he dated Dennis, though he claims to have never met any of her cast mates.

Price meets Ravenel for the first time

With their romance heating up, Price has met Dennis’ former boyfriend and former Southern Charm star Ravenel. Dennis recently opened up about the encounter and admitted that it was one the most awkward moments of her life.

Ravenel apparently walked up to Price and acted as if he did not know him, which only made things even more uncomfortable. The two met for the birthday of Dennis’ oldest child, Kensington.

While Dennis and Ravenel have been fighting a bitter custody war in court for the past few months, they recently set aside their differences to attend their daughter’s pre-school graduation. The pair even posed for photos with each other and later posted the images on social media. Ravenel has not commented on his meeting with Price.

Ravenel faces upcoming trial

Although Ravenel and Dennis have seemingly made amends, he is currently preparing to answer multiple charges of sexual assault. Ravenel was accused of sexually assaulting a nanny inside of his home in Charleston.

The disgraced reality star, who was booted from the series following the charges, has denied any wrongdoing and is looking to prove his innocence in court. Last summer, Ravenel released a statement confirming his exit from Southern Charm. He also blasted the series for taking advantage of him in a time of need.

Ravenel and Dennis started dating when she was only 21 years old. He was 56 years old at the time and went on to have two children with Dennis. In 2016, Dennis lost custody of her children after failing a drug test. She subsequently checked into rehab and later won back joint custody.

New episodes of Southern Charm air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
