Southern Charm’s Kathryn Dennis is no stranger to the use of marijuana. It was in 2016 that she lost full custody of her children and went into rehab after testing positive for the drug.
During an episode of Southern Charm this week, 26-year old Dennis was upset when the group sits down for a weed-infused dinner while on a trip in Colorado.
The reality television star said that marijuana brings up negative memories from her past.
“It’s definitely the white elephant in the room that I’m there with people doing marijuana,” she says. “At my lowest point in my life, I smoked weed and my entire life was turned upside down.”
Today Dennis has 50/5 custody of her daughter and son with ex Thomas Ravenel, but is seeking to obtain primary custody after Ravenel was arrested for assault and battery in the second degree.
“Weed was the reason that I lost my children for a little while,” said Dennis. “The fact that no one is acknowledging it is the biggest slap in the face I’ve ever seen in my life. And rude.”
“I just wanted to let you know that I’m okay with being around it because it’s not awkward,” she also said. “I’m not worried about ‘Oh my god I want to do it now.’ I’m just saying I went to rehab and couldn’t see my kids for a period of time because of it.”
