Southern Charm New Orleans' Reagan Charleston Speaks Out About Her Separation from Jeff Charleston
"There is much more to our story," she said.
The Southern Charm New Orleans jewelry designer took to Twitter to set the record straight on her separation from Jeff after nearly six years of marriage. "Team Charleston. No matter what. I’m taking a lot of heat for my separation from @jefecharleston," Reagan shared in one tweet. "People can call me a gold digger or say I’m bailing because things got rough, but there is much more to our story... changes that happened after the cameras stopped rolling."
Reagan went on to defend her decision to take this step in her relationship with Jeff. "Bottom line: I’m a professional woman who, w/ my partner, made a decision to make positive changes in our relationship and lives," she tweeted. "People — women in particular— should be free to re-evaluate their marriages and/or lives without fear of being chastised, generalized, name-called, marginalized, or degraded. Period."
Jeff appeared to show his support for Reagan by retweeting her first tweet in this series.
Reagan shared the news of her separation from Jeff in a statement to PEOPLE on Monday. The couple wed in 2012. "Jeff and I have decided to separate and are devoting time to re-establishing a great friendship while focusing on personal growth apart," she said. "We are looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for us."
