Strong political ties:
Kathryn comes from a family of politicians. She is a direct descended John Calhoun, who served as the seventh Vice President of the United States, serving under Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams. John was also a South Carolina Senator and is remembered for his speech on the Senate Floor that posited slavery as a “positive good” rather than the “necessary evil”.
Kathryn’s grandfather followed John Calhoun into politics. Rembert C. Dennis had an impressive run in the South Carolina Senate as a member of the Democratic party from 1943 to 1988. He served for 50 years in the South Carolina Legislature

Personal Life: Kathryn Dennis husband, kids, boyfriend?
The reality star was also married to her fellow co-star and South Carolina state treasurer, Thomas Ravenel. Following the marriage, the pair gave birth to two Saint and Kensie. However, Kathryn couldn’t balance her social life and private life which resulted in a divorce. After a bitter custody battle, both Saint and Kensie were given to Thomas. The decision was made after the nanny testified that Kathryn was into party drugs and tested positive for marijuana and cocaine. In 2012, Kathryn was arrested and sentenced to Berkeley jail for excessive drinking and misconduct. However, in 2018, Thomas was arrested for sexual abuse after which custody was handed to Kathryn. As of 2020, Kathryn is presumed to be in a relationship with former America’s Got Talent contestant Hunter Price.

Following the incident, Kathryn was fired from her position as a brand ambassador for Gwyn. Katherine is also in the midst of a lawsuit filed against her by Katherine Leonard, owner of KL Creative. According to Leonard, Katherin is refusing to pay for her services.
“I was brought on to help Ms. Dennis to rebrand herself and worked in good faith to achieve all the goals we set out for her. Once she gave me a deposit we began to work on the meeting said goals on a strict deadline. She accepted my services and I performed them perfectly. Two letters have been sent by a lawyer to her to no avail. I now have no choice but to file here in order to get paid for the work I performed for her in Nov 2019!”
As of writing this article, the case is yet to conclude. Kathryn has not released any official statements on the case.
