That’s why I was so happy when she stopped by the Bravo club house to talk Southern Charm with Andy Cohen and throw shade at just about everyone from the cast. I don’t agree with everything she said, but I love her for sharing her truth while she was wearing a caftan with photos of her dog on it. There’s no way that I couldn’t appreciate a person rocking that outfit.
I don’t know about you, but I was so happy to have Sheree Whitfield back as a full-time cast member this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The bone collector was the one who kept the story lines going and I was grateful for that. I’m also happy that Chateau Sheree is finally done (allegedly) because yes, I’m happy for Sheree, but I’m also happy that the viewers won’t have to hear about baseboards and furniture shopping for another season.
Even though I’m in the minority of people who think Kenya Moore is hilarious, I love it when Sheree comes for her. I’m in that even smaller minority of viewers that are both Kenya and Sheree fans. Sheree shared her thoughts on Kenya’s random argument with Kim Zolciak during the finale and she teased some EPIC drama from the RHOA reunion.
Is it just me, or is this season of Southern Charm getting off to a slow start? I guess we do things at a more leisurely pace down here. Last night’s episode cut out one corner of the Chelsea/Austen Kroll/Shep Rose triangle while educating us on the importance of bro code. Additionally, Thomas Ravenel hosted the crew on Edisto Island. At T-Rav’s plantation, Landon Clements is playing house while she preps for the polo match. She is channeling her inner Goop which brings a sparkle to Thomas’ eye. His last lady didn’t know her way around a kitchen, so Landon is a welcome change. As the pretend power couple awaits its guests, both are equally impressed with the other. Thomas has a plantation and Landon is a refined hostess with the most. My dog’s water bowl has more depth. I sincerely hope these two actually end up together. They deserve each other.
Austen has Chelsea programmed in his phone as “Dream Girl” which makes him even cheesier than I’d already assumed. Bless his heart. However, Chelsea seems excited about the pair’s first date, and they are two of the least annoying of the crew. Yes, I realize they have only been in my face for three episodes, so I’ll reserve my final judgment. On their way to Edisto, Austen questions Chelsea’s relationship status with Shep. She reveals that they are both from Hilton Head and may have engaged in a recent make-out sesh with Shep. Tonsil hockey aside, she still thinks Shep is an idiot. Shep 2.0 is happy to hear this news, despite the irony.
When I was scrolling through Instagram and saw that Camille Grammer was on vacation in Hawaii, I could not help flashing back to her iconic Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 1 feud with Kyle Richards. The origin of their discord happened off camera when they were discussing Camille’s spring break plans that didn’t include her then-husband Kelsey Grammer. Looking back, that explanation sounds so lame, but the argument that ensued was nothing short of legendary.
More than anything, I wish that initial conversation was filmed, but the fact that it wasn’t added some mystery and intrigue to the Camille vs. Kyle fight. Plus we got that amazing Kyle F bomb when she declared, “You’re such a f***ing liar Camille.” Nevertheless, there’s no way that I could ever see anything about Camille and Hawaii and not picture her complaining that Kyle questioned her for going to Hawaii without Kelsey.
On tonight’s Southern Charm, Kathryn Dennis got a chance to sit down with Craig Conoverto explain the changes in her custody arrangement. Up until now, fans have heard ad nauseam that Thomas has full custody, and Kathryn has no access to Kensie (Kensington Calhoun Ravenel) and Saint (St. Julien Rembert Ravenel). But tonight, we learned that all of that changed back in the early fall, despite quotes in the press to the contrary about Kathryn not having any custody of the children.
And even Thomas admitted, albeit just to Whitney Sudler-Smith, that Kathryn indeed had passed her test, and was seeing the kids once again. But for all of his claims that he wants Kathryn back in the lives of the kids, it sure doesn’t seem that way. Episode one of Southern Charm, season 4 featured Thomas Ravenel telling everyone that Kathryn was refusing to take a drug test because she knew she would fail, yet when she passes, and gets the kids back, he only tells Whitney, who seems as if he could care less about Kathryn and the kids. Truthfully, Whitney seems as if he would rather not be on Southern Charm at all.
Now that Naomie Olindo and Craig Conover are such a solid couple, she is bigger part of Southern Charm and I’m into it. So far, she’s not involved in the drama, but she provides some interesting perspective.
Naomie explained why the cast targets Craig and the disconnect between Craig and Shep Rose. She defended Kathryn Dennis as a parent. She also tried to make sense of Landon Clements… which is quite the task.
Before the scary weekend spent in the hospital with her son, Kim Zolciak was a guest on The Real, which aired today. Kim sets the record straight on the rumors of daughter Brielle Biermann getting butt implants and also addresses her return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta – it’s not a done deal just yet, despite reports stating otherwise! She also shares what we can expect this season on Don’t Be Tardy – she teases there’s something big going on!
On returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim explains, “I’m in talks, but I don’t want to come back full time. I have Don’t Be Tardy, so why would I want to do that? I would do both.” She explains that full time would mean “the whole season, reunion. No.”
When asked if she’d like to just do guest appearances here and there, she says, “a few of them. Listen, they pay, so…. I got six kids to feed, honey. I’m not dumb.”
