But later, she accepted the fact, and spoke on the matter in one of the episodes of season four of the show, and said that she was in a rehab facility in California.
Kathryn shared that she was having a hard time, as her kids were still in “Temporary full custody.”
'When I was in California it was, I mean I cried. I would just stand up and burst out into tears and collapse on the floor.'
Moreover, in an interview back in April 2017, Kathryn shared that she feels much better after her time in rehab.
“You know, it's been a long haul. But I feel more me than I've ever felt in a long time.”
She also confessed that Southern Charm season 4 had been the first time she has ever filmed sober.
“It's been wild, but a great experience. That's gonna be through fresh eyes, and I think that it'll provide some new perspective, probably, on these people and on these situations that we have, and Charleston in general.”
She finally concluded saying,
“I'm really at peace with everything. Chaos is out of my life, luckily. And, I have two beautiful babies. What else could you really wish for?”
Kathryn shares two children, Kensington and St. Julian Rembert, with her estranged ex-boyfriend, Thomas Ravenel. Thomas was fighting for the full custody of the children, as he believed they are not safe with Kathryn.
While fighting for custody, Kathryn got an opportunity to spend some quality time with her children, which she shared via Instagram as well. In October 2017, Kathryn shared a picture with her two children, which perfectly captured the family in a happy moment.
Kathryn and Thomas Ravenel were in a relationship from 2013 to 2015, but never got married. Moreover, the couple was in on and off the relationship, but when she got pregnant with her son for the second time, fans felt a slight hope that their relationship could move towards betterment.
Kathryn shared surprise over the pregnancy in an interview back in September 2015 as,
“I was surprised. Thomas and I are always on and off, but we had a whirlwind romance that weekend. That’s kind of how we were with the first pregnancy, too. Things were wishy-washy, but we embraced it.”
Kathryn then shared that she and Thomas were friends,
“We are friends. We communicate and things are pleasant. “That’s all I can really hope for.”
The pregnancy brings about a lot of changes in a woman's body, including weight. Kathryn is already a mother of two children, but she has maintained her body well but is yet to reveal her secrets for her perfect body.
Result Of The Battle For Custody
While things did go downhill for Kathryn, her life surely got the warmth. In November 2019, the results of her case for the custody of her children. She and her ex Thomas agreed on sharing 50/50 custody of their children while Thomas was granted primary care.
