Shep, 39, is doing everything he can to be there for his friend, Kathryn, 26.
"She had another breakdown in front of me that wasn't on camera, and I was very worried about her," Shep told to People on June 18.
The 39-year-old also spoke about his attempt to get Kathryn back on her feet. "I said 'let me — let's go out to breakfast tomorrow, and I want you to tell me everything,' and — so I can understand," he recalled.
While meeting up, Kathryn told Shep she doesn't reach out to anybody except her fellow Southern Charm star Danni Baird.
Although Shep and Kathryn have had disagreements on the show before, they seem to be in good spirits now. "I think I put her at ease because I turn everything into a joke and she likes to laugh, so I might not be the best shoulder to cry on, but I'm like Patch Adams, or someone, you know?" Shep said. "Laughter is the best medicine."
Kathryn's first breakdown, which was documented on Southern Charm, came as a result of legal and custody issues with the father of her children, Thomas Ravenel, who was arrested for assault and battery in 2018. They share daughter Kensington, 5, and son St. Julien, 3.
