Is Thomas Ravenel, the disgraced former treasurer of South Carolina, a baby daddy?
That is the question we're left to ponder at the end of the BravoTV.com trailer for “Southern Charm,” a new reality show filmed in Charleston.
Ravenel, who served federal prison time after pleading guilty to using cocaine while he held public office, is just one of a few privileged members of the cast who are seen partying and bickering in the two-minute video. “There is a small, ruling entrenched minority of very established old families in Charleston,” one of the cast members says.
“Southern Charm” purports to show how that ruling class lives against the backdrop of the Holy City. It ends leaving us to wonder whether Ravenel is the father of another cast member's baby.
Will people tune in? We'll find out when it premieres March 3.
