The Southern charm honor hopes to see Kathryn Dennis back on the show after she reportedly ran away.
“We actually love Kathryn,” Craig Conover said Sunday Southern charm panel at BravoCon in Las Vegas. “Shep and I actually filmed with her this year. I don’t think it should have happened, but we did and I think they did it as a favor to us because we love her so much.”
Conover, 34, said he wants to see that tape, but “we probably won’t.”
“The point of me telling you that is we’d love to see it come back,” the Sewing Down South founder continued. “I think the door is always open. I think she’s working on herself and has a lot of work to do before she comes back. But I hope she’s doing well and I know a lot of people have been here recently, we’ve been in touch with her.” ”

And Shep Rose defended Dennis.
“We’ve all come a long way and we’ve seen bumps and bruises and all that stuff,” said Rose, 43. “And unfortunately, you know, Kathryn stumbles sometimes. We love her because there’s a person in her that we know is a good person.”
Conover said he would like Dennis to come back Southern charm next season.
“She is doing so well and wanted to be here with all of you more than anything,” he told the crowd. “And our goal for next year is for her to, you know, come back and see you.”

Bravo fans first met Dennis when the reality series debuted in Charleston in 2014. She met Thomas Ravenel during season 1, and by the end of filming that year they were expecting a daughter, Kensington Calhoun, who is now 9 years old. The following year, they welcomed their son Saint Julien in November 2015.
Dennis’ time on the show was dominated by her combustible relationship with Ravenel, now 61, which led to many accusations from him about her sobriety and ability as a mother. They fought for years to resolve their long-running custody battle, which they finally did in 2019, and continued to work on their co-parenting dynamic after the breakup of their romantic relationship.
