Southern Charm

southern-charm-thomas-ravenel

On a serious note, I am so thankful to you, dear readers…thankful for your loyalty to this site, for your comments, and yes, even for your critiques! ;) I feel very grateful for a gig where I am able to watch awesomely bad reality television and share my snark, shock, opinions, and life with all of you. That said, I’m also thankful for the Charleston police for releasing what may be the most amazing cell phone video footage…ever. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again–I am so glad that I didn’t grow up in a time where technology was the norm. Unfortunately, Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel didn’t either, yet it’s not working out for him at the moment! 

By now, y’all know that my Bravo guilty pleasure is returning with T-Rav front and center (I never believed him when he said he was done!). You’ve also heard about his recent incident where ex-girlfriend/baby mama Kathryn Dennis’ stylist/baby-sitter accused Thomas of assault and claimed to have iPhone video footage to prove it. Well, Merry Christmas, y’all! The Post & Courier (my local paper) has said footage, and it’s every bit as fabulous as you’d hoped. There is yelling. T-Rav accuses Kathryn and her friend of smoking weed in his house. Kathryn reminds him multiple times that he fell into the pool with their baby (baby is fine!), and someone is fishing for a new designer bag. Did I mention that T-Rav is naked the entire time? Yes, Christmas certainly came early! I still have a weird affinity for Thomas, and I kind of wish that his business wasn’t blurred in the video. #sorrynotsorry Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to you and yours!

Southern Charm Thomas Ravenel

So, I received a text last night from my dear friend Will (not Folks–ew–a.k.a. T-Rav’s consultant turned nemesis) asking if I’d seen Thomas Ravenel’s latest campaign commercial. As many of you know, the Southern Charm Lothario and par for the course embarrassing South Carolina politician is running for United States Senate. He wrote, “PLEASE tell me you’ve seen T-Rav’s political ad. He’s holding his baby, talking about how he doesn’t ‘run away from his responsibilities.’ YouTube it. Totally worth it.” (Un)fortunately, I didn’t have to YouTube anything, as the seems to run on a constant loop on any given channel…and he was right–totally worth it.

In the ad, T-Rav goes on to say he’s done things he’s proud of as well as things he’s not proud of (I wonder in which category Southern Charm falls). Well, yesterday news erupted that made this campaign ad particularly hilarious…and it involved Thomas likely doing something he’s not proud of while holding his daughter…allegedly. According to a recent accusation, T-Rav drunkenly fell in his pool while holding his baby (she’s fine!) before assaulting girlfriend Kathryn Dennis’ stylist. Good times!

Full disclosure: I set out to loathe Southern Charm. I anticipated watching like one would a train wreck. In the beginning, I did, but then something strange happened. It was as if the Who's Who of Whooville Charleston various towns throughout my great state were able to change this Grinch. At first I couldn't stand the thought of Thomas Ravenel, having once watched him make out at the table next to me in some oyster bar years ago. Then, strangely, I began to feel sorry for him, as he clearly just wanted to find love and a proper Senator's wife. Finally, he grew on me, much like a wart or some other weird skin abnormality, but grew on me nonetheless. I honestly think he's going to be an amazing dad.

That said, I guess I'm going to have to start following politics, because T-Rav isn't planning on any more Bravo stints. Instead, he's hoping to revamp his political career with the hopes that people will remember his time on Southern Charm more than they do the time he served in prison. T-Rav certainly has a colorful past, doesn't he? He's like a modern day Ernest Hemingway without the works of literary genius.

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta

This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta came back with a bang (no puns intended) and every show but one, Real Housewives of Orange County, logged an increase in viewership this week. 

On Sunday, part three of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion garnered 4.289 million viewers, and 2.311 million saw the cast of Married to Medicine embarrass themselves at the WEN conference

On Monday, a whopping 3.761 million viewers watched the season 3 premiere of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Also, 1.386 million sat through Arianna's nagging on 16 and Pregnant, and RHOC took a turn for the worse with only 1.435 million tuning in to meet Lizzie. Southern Charm ended its first season with a 952,600 average after 1.038 million watched the secrets revealed special.

On Tuesday, Real Housewives of New York beat out RHOC for the first time this season, with 1.479 million watching Ramona act crazy in the Berkshires

Southern Charm reunion

This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 2.206 million watched the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion, bringing its season average to 2.055 million. Sadly, only 861,000 fans bothered with the Southern Charm reunion, but we hope the season finale's 1.21 million and the season average of 943,000 is enough to get it renewed. 

Part two of the controversial Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion attracted 4.148 million viewers – that's a tiny bump up from part one. Roughly half of RHOA's audience stuck around to watch Cecil and Dr. Simone's marital woes on Married to Medicine.

The Ramona and Sonja drama on Real Housewives of New York interested 1.464 million viewers, which is a new season six high. Meanwhile, 1.711 million suffered through "fakes giving" on Real Housewives of Orange County, and 1.136 million watched Millina's struggle on 16 and Pregnant.

I have to admit that I was oh-so-hoping that the Southern Charm reunion would actually be filmed in Charleston, and I had grand plans of stalking Andy Cohen. No such luck…the clubhouse it is!  As the reunion begins, Andy introduces the crew. Cameran Eubanks looks gorgeous, and Craig Conover is rocking some serious red pants. Shep Rose looks three sheets to the wind already, but hey, isn't that why we love him?  

Andy starts by asking Thomas Ravenel about new baby Kensington, and T-Rav says that she's brought so much joy to his life, he wishes he'd started a family sooner…like when he was Kathryn Dennis' age. His daughter would be out of college by now! 

RHOA reunion

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and it's good news all around. The Real Housewives of Atlanta kicked off their reunion with 4.13 million viewers in attendance. Also on Sunday, 2.38 million fans tuned in for the Quad vs. Mariah gossip on Married to Medicine

On Monday, season finales of Southern Charm and Basketball Wives L.A. garnered 1.21 million and 2.198 million, respectively. That's a season high for Southern Charm. 1.84 million watched the spooky party on Real Housewives of Orange County, and 1.21 million met Autumn on 16 and Pregnant

On Tuesday, 1.383 million viewers sat through the Real Housewives of New York bickering their way through July 4th. Part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion attracted 1.351 million. That's a season low for Teen Mom 2. But it's more likely a result of MTV messing with the schedule rather than viewers losing interest.

Well last night was bittersweet!  Honestly, when I first requested to recap Southern Charm, I certainly didn't think I'd enjoy it–I just wanted to have an excuse to chronicle the inevitable train wreck. However, I'm sad to see it come to an end. Heck, I even started to kind of like Thomas Ravenel (and, no, I'm not drinking!)! Cameran Eubanks is utterly charming, Whitney Sudler-Smith's mother Patricia totally stole the show, and Shep Rose, well, um, he's got great fratty hair. Even Craig Conover grew on me a bit, and I'm not totally ashamed that we will soon be alums from the same law school. We all know that T-Rav has welcomed a baby girl with Kathryn Dennis and is residing in Florida (though still planning to run against Lindsay Graham according to The State), and Cameran married herself an anesthesiologist, so I am not counting my chickens that there will be a season two. I guess we'll have to bask in last night's finale to dull the pain.

The show begins where it left off last week, with Whitney's admission that he too hooked up with Kathryn around the same time frame as her "fling" with Shep and her pregnancy scare with Thomas. Prior to their con-bro-sation, the thirty second recap of the season courtesy of Cameran and Craig is pretty spot on and hilarious, I must say. Whitney tries to explain that he feels "dark and sleazy" for keeping this secret from his best friend, and he hopes that T-Rav will tread lightly in pursuing a relationship with her given his future political aspirations. Thomas looks gobsmacked. When did chicks start hooking up as often and as haphazardly as dudes?
