Former S.C. treasurer Thomas Ravenel gets a lot of air time in the promo from the new Bravo reality show in Charleston called "Southern Charm" that debuts in March.

"I will bitch slap you in a second," he tells one of the other show members on a rainy night.

He also is seen sitting in a doctor's office when he's asked to take a paternity test.

"I think may need something stronger than the tea here," he says when told someone in the cast is pregnant.

Ravenel resigned as treasurer in 2007 after pleading guilty to cocaine charges.
