Thomas Ravenel calls his journey on a reality show a "rocky road."
The co-star of Bravo's reality hit, "Southern Charm" also says he feels embarrassed sometimes when he sees himself on television.
"I'll be quite honest with you. Watching it week after week, I'll get through the show and by Wednesday, I'm back to normal. Then Monday, I'm like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe everyone's watching this! It's ridiculous! How did I let myself get talked into this?'"
The South Carolina politician and former state treasurer has a new role: he's a first-time father. Viewers of the program were introduced to his daughter, Kensington Calhoun Ravenel. Her mother is a co-star of the show, Kathryn Dennis.
