Kathryn Dennis' relationship with Joseph Abruzzo may have ended almost as quickly as it began this season of Southern Charm, but the Charleston Charmer has moved on since, finding a new love in country singer Hunter Price.
Kathryn went public with her new relationship in January, just a few weeks after she first met Hunter around New Year's in Nashville. "I was having dinner with some friends that lived there, and he came, and we clicked. And we're weird, and he gets my weird, and that's really weird," Kathryn said while recounting her meet-cute during an interview with The Daily Dish earlier this season, which you can view, above. "He's really sweet and genuine. To be honest with you, I had lost hope that anyone like that existed ever again in life."
The two not only bonded over their love of the arts but also over knowing what it's like to live your life in the public eye. "I like seeing someone passionate about what they do. And because he's artsy, we have a lot in common, like weird things in common," Kathryn shared. "He knows me, I know him, we just are very transparent about it."
Hunter lives in Nashville, which Kathryn is more than OK with, telling The Daily Dish, "Thank god I'm not dating anyone in Charleston." However, that means she has to get a little creative. "I mean, I'm just trying to Pinterest how to do cute things for long-distance relationships," she said. "But I will say I love Nashville, and I never want to move from Charleston, but if I did, it would be Nashville. It's cool. It's fun there."
Perhaps most importantly, Hunter has gotten two thumbs up from a very important person in Kathryn's social circle. "I will say Patricia [Altschul] immediately approved. That's wild. And I think that speaks highly, right, of him. I don't know. Everyone likes him a lot," she said. "It's just nice to have everyone be kind and open to someone that I care about, too."
Kathryn said she is just grateful to have someone like Hunter in her life who loves her just the way she is. "I can imagine that my baggage can be intimidating to people, but luckily, it's Louis Vuitton baggage," she said. "And he accepts me for me."
Will it be first comes love, then comes marriage for Kathryn and Hunter? The Charmer discussed the possibility of marrying her new man during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in May. See what she had to say, below.
