Kathryn Dennis has been silent about a rumor she says started.
It has been talked about Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks’ husband, Jason Wimberly, having an affair with makeup artist Rebecca Leigh Wash. Many have said it was Dennis who made up the rumor to boost viewership.
But Kathryn said on Sunday that that is not the case. “I’ve been quiet since it all started and said I shouldn’t post anything, but I can’t take it anymore,” she wrote in her Instagram stories when she first claimed she was racist for being a black Charleston activist Tamika Gadsden. monkey sent emoji.
I don’t: Kathryn Dennis has broken her silence about a rumor she says started. On Sunday, the star said she never spread the rumor that Cameran Eubanks’ husband Jason Wimberly had an affair with makeup artist Rebecca Leigh Wash
She said, “I use that emoji all the time because it looks stupid and clumsy and that’s my baseline. The account was anonymous, I didn’t even know who I’m messaging ???? ‘
Shen then said, “You should know that this whole thing is blown out of context. I am mad with sorrow and so depressed because of the way I am portrayed is absolutely not true !!!
“And it’s not fair. And now I see that I am back with IG, that some *** people love using these situations to come on their own. Use for their own benefit. But I will not let that happen. Have never done it. ‘
And she had to respond because she ‘can’t bear to have my character destroyed. Be patient and know that this is not correct. ‘
She added that she will make a statement Monday.
Her defense: “You should know that this whole thing is blown out of context. I am mad with sorrow and so depressed because of the way I am portrayed is absolutely not true !!! she added
Cameron, who is leaving the show, also spoke out about claims that her husband was having an affair.
“I wanted to make a kind statement about why I decided to leave the show … but I’ve noticed that insidious rumors and fake articles are now being written … some of which relate to my marriage,” she said on Instagram.
“What upsets me most is that my husband, the most sincere and faithful person I know, is wrongly dragged into this. I am disgusted. ‘
Wash denied the affair, saying “the claims that this rumor had started by Kathryn Dennis are even more offensive. To suggest that I am somehow associated with these accusations is stunned, hurtful, and evil.
“I have been wrongly accused of dating the husband of Southern Charm’s Cameran Wimberly,” Wash said. “I’ve never met Jason or Cameran Wimberly in my life.”
Wash said she was deeply shocked by the controversy, noting that she has no ties to the show – other than her zip code.
The latter: Cameran Eubanks and Jason Wimberly called the “hurtful” allegations “blatant, groundless lies.” Eubanks and Wimberly were featured in a social media recording in February
“I’m not a religious follower of Southern Charm, but as a makeup artist and resident of Charleston, it’s impossible not to know who the show’s cast is,” she said. “I’ve never seen eyes or contacted Jason Wimberly, Cameran, or anyone in their beautiful family except on television.”
Wash said she met Dennis – in a “limited interaction in a professional capacity” – who has been linked to the source of the rumor.
“The allegations that Kathryn Dennis started this rumor are even more offensive,” said Wash. I met Kathryn once in July 2018 when I was doing her makeup for a photo shoot for a local clothing store. I haven’t seen or spoken to Kathryn since.
Set the record straight: Wash explained the details of the scandal – or lack thereof
Controversy: A number of people associated with the Bravo show – including Naomie Olindo and Eubanks – voted for the makeup artist’s post
“To suggest that I am somehow associated with these accusations is stunned, hurtful, and evil. I am so sorry for the Wimberly family that someone would cut so low that he would attack the main tenant of someone’s life – his family. ‘
In response to Wash’s message, Eubanks said in a repost that the makeup artist is “the victim here” and does not deserve the attention she has received.
“It’s so sad that this kind, beautiful and innocent girl had to be dumped in the mud,” Eubanks said. “I signed up for this by being on TV. She didn’t know. @RebeccaWash is the victim here. ‘
Response: In her own Instagram post, Wimberly said the rumor had been developed as a rating trick
In her own post, Cameron said the rumor was a ruse to drum up controversy and assessments.
The show’s Naomie Olindo also reposted Wash’s post saying “it’s so shitty” which is why she, Eubanks and Chelsea Meissner left the Bravo series. She added to her former costar, “Shame on you @kathryndennis for this and a LOT of other things.”
The show’s seventh season, featuring Austen Kroll, Craig Conover, Shep Rose, Madison LeCroy and Danni Baird, has suspended production amid various shutdown conditions across the country in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
