Southern Charm

Danni-Baird-Naomie-Olindo

I have always wondered what it’s like to be a side character on a reality TV show. Do these people get paid? Do they have any contact with the production company? Do they just show up to casually hang out with their friends in front of a camera crew? I imagine this differs from show to show and from person to person, but I can’t help being curious.

Intermittent Southern Charm cast member Danni Baird shed some light on how things work in regard to her involvement with the show.

Southern Charm seems to be returning to its roots without the past season’s bitter drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis. On last night’s episode, the once tumultuous couple saw each other for the first time in nearly a year after a tentative turn as pen pals. Of course, we’ll see how long it lasts as T-Rav tries to forge a romantic relationship with Landon Clements

Last night’s episode begins in Hampton Park where Thomas is hosting  Saint’s first birthday, complete with a kitten and bunny petting zoo. As the crew preps for the celebration, Landon calls to regret. She’s not quite ready to play house yet. En route to the shindig, Liz is riding co-pilot with an anxious Kathryn as husband JD shuttles their brood. Also carpooling are Patricia Altschul and Cameran Eubanks who comment on just how embarrassing it must be to for Kathryn to be a guest at her own son’s birthday. So kind, and not at all condescending, for sure. Kathryn arrives and shares a robotic hug with T-Rav before hugging her precious babies. The pair awkwardly make small talk about their correspondence and card stock. Danni shows up (where has she been?) with JD and his kids following behind. Cameran embraces Kathryn while Pat heads in the opposite direction, navigating the goose poop in her Louboutins. As the rest of the crowd trickles in, Kathryn passes right by Jennifer Snowden and her baby. Come on, Kathryn. Show some of that forgiveness you’ve been vying for with your peers.

Has hell indeed frozen over? Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel have been locked in a vicious custody battle for more than a year now and it looks like things might FINALLY be coming to a peaceful resolution!

A glimmer of hope has emerged today as Kathryn and Thomas met up for a peaceful lunch together!

The lack of drama on this season’s Southern Charm has been a catch-22. Obviously, I don’t want drama for the sake of entertainment at the expense of two young children and their feuding parents, but without the screaming and roof raising, what are we watching? Last night’s episode reminded me why I fell in love with the first season. These folks seem to sincerely have fun with each other, and I believe they all have good hearts…if not intentions.

The show begins as Kathryn Dennis practices yoga in Hampton Park as Landon reaches out Thomas Ravenel to ask him out to dinner. Cameran Eubanks takes a call from her husband Jason Wimberly and informs him of their family of five predicted by the psychic. He suggests turning their downstairs bedroom into a nursery, but she’s making it a zen room…for now. In fact, she’s on her way to purchase all new fixings for the spot. In the Old Village, Craig Conover gets some epic news of his own from the Dean of the law school. He’s finally satisfied his upper level writing requirement which means he is officially finished with law school. Craig and Gizmo celebrate with a Facetime session with his parents and some cat treats. At Marshall’s Cameran is shopping with Chelsea to decorate her new zen room. Cameran rehashes the evening at Patricia’s, complete with Craig and Shep Rose screaming about forgiveness and her desire to stay above the fray. She’s not picking sides and wishes Kathryn well, she’s just strives to be drama free. Chelsea shares her initial meeting with Kathryn. She was expecting a nightmare but enjoyed her interaction with the group outsider.

Are we ready for another Southern Charm night? Time to say goodbye to the long holiday weekend and get back into the reality realm.

First up tonight is Southern Charm. Cameran Eubanks and Whitney Sudler-Smith do lunch with Kathryn Dennis, Craig Conover and Shep Rose.

Austen Kroll goes golfing with Craig (it seems they keep their clothes on to play golf in Charleston, must only be a Savannah thing). Austen and Craig talk about Shep’s feelings for Chelsea.

Finally an episode of Southern Charm with some kick! Not only did it leave me craving some curry and a caftan, it finally centered around the dynamic we all want to watch. Whether you love or hate the drama constantly swirling around Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis, it makes for good television…and I feel a lot less guilty saying that now that they are less of a train wreck!

After her quick visit to Pork City, population two, Chelsea jokes with Cameran Eubanks that Austen Kroll knocked the cobwebs off her hooha with their recent tryst. And here I was thinking Charleston had gotten yet another barbecue joint! As the girls gossip, Thomas takes daughter Kensie on a driving tour of Charleston pointing out all of the Ravenel rich history while omitting his prison stint, of course. While he’s droning on about the family name, his ex Kathryn is reaching out to his best friend–and her nemesis–to make amends. For the pot-stirring Whitney Sudler-Smith, that’s a voicemail worth its weight in dollar signs!

It’s Southern Charm night once again! We have all new episodes of Charleston and Savannah!

Tonight on Southern Charm Charleston (or OG), JD is surprised to find out that Kathryn Dennis took his advice on reaching out to Thomas Ravenel. Thomas shares that she has written him a well thought out and well written letter. She apologizes for past issues and even tells Chelsea that she still loves Thomas.

As much as the cast tries to make Kathryn Dennis the villain on Southern Charm, at this point the audience has really turned against Landon Clements. From flirting with everyone, to being malicious toward Kathryn, to that weird sexual tension with her and Thomas Ravenel, the list of off-putting behaviors just keeps on growing. When she joined the show, Shep Rose had a thing for her, she didn’t go for it, and eventually she professed her love for him because she had no story line on her own. Now, there seems to be a lot of tension between Landon and Shep and I’m not talking about the sexual kind.

Shep (just like the rest of the viewers) is not a fan of Landon’s “I’m better than you” attitude. Ever since he called her out for her obnoxious comment about hanging with “billionaires” and “not millionaires” it’s clear that she’s been trying to instigate him.
