Bravo is said to be walking a fine line right now with the Charleston Police investigation into Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel. Ravenel has publicly been accused of sexual assault and forcible rape by two women, and Bravo and Southern Charm's production company, Haymaker, have alleged that they are doing their own investigation.
But what do they hope to find? FitsNews isn't so sure that Bravo wants to find anything and says the network famous for the Real Housewives franchise is currently in panic mode as Charleston Police attempt to question the entire Southern Charm cast about the accusations against Ravenel. The show is in the midst of some of its best ratings ever, so they don't want to make big changes at this time.
But at least one of Ravenel's accusers has been on the show in earlier seasons, dragging the rest of the cast into the mix. Dawn, the Ravenel children's first nanny, says that while she was working for the family, Thomas raped her at his home, first exposing himself to her before getting violent.
For this reason, Bravo and Haymaker's investigation into Ravenel has only allegedly yielded gag orders and threats of fines and possible terminations for the rest of the Southern Charm cast.
