While Kathryn can't go into specifics about her custody arrangement with Thomas, she does tell PEOPLE that the limited amount of time she does spend with her two kids is “the most difficult challenge I can imagine anyone could ever go through in life. Those are my two angels.” The Southern Charm mom added, “There are so many days when I just see a toy or something randomly misplaced and break down in tears.”

Kathryn, who returns to Charleston following a stint in rehab during the Southern Charm Season 4 premiere, notes that she learned certain coping mechanisms while getting treatment to help with stressful situations. “I’ve learned that I have cope right now because there is an end to all of this custody [conflict]. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. And I have to remain true to myself and remain resilient in my recovery," she said. "There’s going to be a day when things get back to normal, and that day’s getting closer and closer.”

Kathryn Opens up About Rehab

As Shep Rose told The Daily Dish this week, Kathryn is now focused on yoga in the wake of her rehab stay, and she tells PEOPLE she's considering getting certified to teach Mommy & Me yoga.

"I’m trying to figure out what exactly I want to do with my life as a person and as someone who’s going to be a provider never dependent on anyone or on any man,” she said. “I’m saving my money. I’m living back at home, which is great for me. I have privacy and time to really think about these things. I want normalcy. I want to lead a more simple life. My relationship with Thomas was complicated and my reality with him was so chaotic. I just want to get back to the things that I loved prior to that and put on the back burner for some years.”

These days, Kathryn is focused on her family. “It’s difficult because I get such little time with them, so it’s just about enjoying that time and enjoying family.”
