Last night’s Southern Charm invited us to sit down with our favorite man children and the girls who love to hate them…and sometimes hate to love them. All poor Shep Rose wants is to celebrate his thirty-eighth birthday, but Naomie Olindo and Danni Baird have other plans. Kathryn Dennis manages to keep her cool despite Thomas Ravenel flaunting new arm candy in her heavily made up face. It’s the south’s version of the dinner party from hell, minus the e-cigarette and psychic.
At Shep’s house, Craig Conover is lording over raw meat as T-Rav and his new lady bitch about Kathryn and joke about Ashley becoming T-Rav’s new bride and his children’s new mom. Classy. The charmers arrive at the party with Cameran Eubanks waddling up with in her finest maternity wear that showcases her adorable bump. Ashley tries to butter up the mini-matriarch by asking if she’s only five months along in her pregnancy…as if she doesn’t stalk her on social media. Cameran questions Craig about how he feels seeing Naomie, and he’s nervous. In the Uber with the girls, Naomie admits she feels the same way. Likewise, Austen Kroll and Chelsea Meissner are awaiting their own uneasy encounters. T-Rav jokes that J.D. calls this gal crew the “break-up bunch.” The ladies are all about supporting each other while tearing down their narcissistic Peter Pan counterparts.
Here’s the thing though: everyone in this cast loves Brittany– who Jax cheated on with Faith Stowers– so it’s tough for the rest of the cast members to have sympathy for him given the bigger scandals in their relationship.
Karen didn’t do herself any favors during that “press conference.” She only served peanuts and water. She refused to answer any questions. She did not share any useful information. It was just a total failure, but did make for some great TV.
First Teresa Giudice came out of jail looking phenomenal and she just keeps getting hotter. Now Luann de Lesseps has jail time (albeit it a way shorter time period than Teresa) and a rehab stint to thank for her recent glow-up.
Luann’s decision to stay sober and focus on her wellness is a good thing for her legal troubles and her body- clearly. The former countess shared a video of Instagram showing off her bikini body- which is not something I ever expected to see from the woman that we “met” during Real Housewives of New YorkSeason 1. Oh, how far we’ve come.
You know a Real Housewives show is good when it returns with the same cast it had last season and when it doesn’t rely on “Friends of the Housewives” or other side characters to make it interesting. The only show that statement applies to is Real Housewives of New York.
Aside from all that boring chatter about the marathon- which is a great achievement that I could never ever pull off- Carole Radziwillblessed the fandom with some amazing shade during the last Real Housewives of New York episode.
At this point in the season, it looks like it’s Carole and Tinsley Mortimer are on one side and Luann de Lessepsand Sonja Morgan on the other. Carole didn’t use up all of her best shade during the episode. She had a lot more to say about Sonja and Lu.
