You’ve got to hand it to Thomas Ravenel. The man has staying power. Like a strange light appearing in the night sky, Charleston’s not-so-favorite son has managed to captivate us all — and while we may not be able to offer an explanation, we can’t look away. Fresh off a failed Senate run in 2014, the former state treasurer and reality show star continued to grab headlines in 2015. From the birth of his new son St. Julien with embattled Southern Charm costar Kathryn Dennis, to an alleged late-night attack in a downtown bar that left him a bit worse for wear, T-Rav has continued to show us why he’s the man we all love to hate.
