‘Southern Charm’: Is This One Reason Why Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis Couldn’t Stay Together?

Viewers have a pretty good idea why Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis from Southern Charm didn’t make it as a couple. The firey twosome had a magnetic attraction to each other, while at the same time warred just as fiercely.

They tried to make their relationship work after Dennis gave birth to the couple’s first child. But try as they did, the relationship often exploded in their faces and taking everyone down around them.

While they aren’t together for obvious reasons, maybe the “cosmos” could have predicted what would happen with this union. While astrology may not determine what could happen in any relationship, the cards were certainly in this couple’s favor to not only get together but to also fall apart.

They are both Leos

Dennis and Ravenel share a zodiac sign, which can be a good thing, especially in this instance. Dennis was born on August 5, whereas Ravenel celebrates his birthday on August 11. According to Cosmopolitan, Leos are born leaders, who are known for their self-confidence. Leos are also loyal, passionate and spontaneous.

Ravenel and Dennis launched their relationship based on spontaneity. The couple hooked up after evenings of partying and eventually started dating because of their passion for one another.

Other personality traits include a desire to be the center of attention, a demand for the finer things in life, plus they love to give unsolicited advice. Sound like anyone? Ravenel became infamous for his “words of wisdom” dinners where, after one too many cocktails, he would tell cast members what he thought of them, often using brutal language and becoming offensive.

Should Leos be in a relationship?

Leos are actually very compatible–until they are not. According to Compatible Astrology, “Leo and Leo (two partners both with a Leo sun sign) is a powerful and dramatic match, a playful battle of wills and egos, often with soulmate potential.” For quite some time, Ravenel and Dennis thought they were each other’s soulmate.

However, Leo couples often have an “explosive” relationship too. Ravenel and Dennis were filmed having epic fights that appeared to be pretty aggressive. In some respect, the couple would break up and makeup in the most dramatic fashion too. “You’re both dramatic, and there’s a high chance this relationship will be a series of arguments and making up – which both may ‘secretly’ enjoy.”

Making up seemed to be one of Dennis and Ravenel’s favorite things to do. After the wild season two Southern Charm reunion, the couple fought, but later hooked up. As a result, they welcomed their second child. But that wasn’t the only post-reunion hookup too.

Dennis spilled about how she and Ravenel got together after the season four reunion too.  “Do you want me to admit something? I’ve never told anyone this but after this year’s reunion or whatever, you know how in the past we hooked up afterwards? That happened this year,” Dennis said on the Be Here for a While with Rachael O’Brien podcast, Reality Blurb recounts. “And this is the first time I’m saying this.”
