I’ve been sinking into the warm, comfy chaise lounge that is Southern Charm since last season and, given the climbing numbers of viewers each week, so have a lot of us! With tonight’s episode looming before us (will Kathryn Dennis turn more hillbilly than femme fatale on T-Rav’s aging carcass? Will Whitney Sudler-Smith ever stop breastfeeding?), we take a look at SC’s resident southern charmer, Shepard “Shep” Rose, as he answers some questions on his latest Bravo blog. Alas, no spoiler alerts here, but plenty of “Oh, gorsh!” Shep reflections.
When asked about his birthday party, from with Kathryn took longer than Shep to recover, Shep says, “I had a blast at my party. Any party where I’m the center of attention is OK with me. Honestly I don’t really get bad hangovers; it’s a blessing and a curse.” He and his non-hungover self also finally moved into the house he’s been building all season: “My new house is great. I moved in in December. Got it all set up perfectly now.” When he says he’s got it set up, I think we can likely deduce that Shep’s mom, who has been buying and storing home goods for her dear boy since Laura Ashley stopped making floral wallpaper, actually did the dirty work.
But first, Kenya pointed out both the good and the bad about the reunions. As for the positive, she explained, “The reunion represents closure on all levels. I believe most women need closure.”
As for the negative aspect, Kenya shared, “Reunions are tough because you live through filming, then through seeing it on TV, and then again during the reunion. You can feel you have moved on from something difficult and then you have to discuss it and rehash it. I felt good about this reunion, because I have grown so much. I am stronger now and nothing or anyone can destroy me.”
Meri Brown just celebrated her 25th wedding anniversary to Kody Brown, but instead of partaking in the rest of family’s jubilation over the milestone, she’s posting cryptic messages on social media about pain ending, joy coming, being a fighter, and finally seeing the light. Hmmm… I’m sensing that someone isn’t feeling the love. I’m also feeling that everyone else is trying to pretend it’s all fiiinne!
Meri’s barrage of escape and freedom-themed social media posts have us all wondering is she leaving Kody, the family, and Sister Wives!? Let’s hope!
Kody and Meridivorced in February, but to the public insisted the split was more about finances and logistics than it was about a lack of love. Her fellow sister wives insisted Kody and Meri remained “spiritually” connected.
The season three cast will include Lisa Nicole Cloud, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Dr. Jackie Walters, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, and Toya Bush-Harris. “Jackie’s passion for health leads her to start a fitness program but heartbreak hits home when she must deal with a family member’s illness,” shares Bravo. “Simone’s practice is booming, but her personal life is about to implode when she dives into her past and figures out the root of her anger issues. Heavenly may bite off more than she can chew as an entrepreneur, relationship expert, dentist, and mother, but faces a daunting dilemma when her husband pressures her to spend more time at home. Toya is on a mission to prove that she is not just a doctor’s wife and helps Eugene take his medical concierge business to the next level. When Quad and Lisa run background checks on each other, the results reveal shocking transgressions that leave the two at odds.”

This is the story all about how, Real Housewives Of Atlanta got turned upside down. And I’d like to take a minute – just sit right there – to tell you how I became the princess of an African who isn’t really there.
In Hotlanta born and raised, married to money, living in debt was where I spent most of my days. Fillin’ out maxin out AmEx all cool and starting gossip outside The Bailey School. When a couple of unmarrieds who were up to no good started making trouble in my Housewives hood. I got in one little affair with an African, the bitches got loud and said I’m stealing your crown.
I yelled and threatened day after day, to drag her MISS- WHO-S-A title down in shame. So I packed my Firkin and sent us all on plane. Buzzin’ on moscato and throwing’ out shade, I snapped a pic on my iPhone, and said, “I might as well tweet it, but the friendships still fake.’
Like confetti on your clothes after a Lady Gaga concert, Bruce Jenner is in every crack and cranny you look in these days.Jenner has been all over news and gossip websites lately in the wake of his Diane Sawyer interview about gender identity, but now the February Malibu car crash Bruce refused to comment on during that interview is bubbling back up to the surface.
Kim Howe, who died in the crash, is survived by two adult stepchildren who are seeking restitution (Kim had no other living relatives). They are jointly filing a wrongful death lawsuit “claiming Bruce was ‘careless and negligent’ when he slammed into Howe’s Lexus on PCH back in February, causing it to careen into oncoming traffic where it collided head on with a Hummer,” according to TMZ. The crash itself is still being investigated by the LA County Sheriff’s Department who will send their findings to the LA county DA for possible prosecution, but sources say “it’s unlikely prosecutors will file.”
On last night’s Blood, Sweat, and Heels, we start at Mica Hughes’ apartment, where she’s on the phone with Daisy Lewellynto tell her about her peace-treaty lunch later that day with Demetria Lucas in Brooklyn. Daisy knows that Mica’s sensitive about Demetria’s accusations about Mica being an alcoholic, but Mica hopes for the best. She’s going into the meeting with an open heart, but knows that Demetria can be a hard nut to crack. AtArzo Anwar’s showroom, Melyssa Ford visits to look through the matchy-matchy oversized fashions on display. The two of them have bonded over their failed relationships in the past, so Arzo asks her to visit her family in CA with her to tell Arzo’s family about her current squeeze, YestirDay. Arzo’s parents would prefer her to marry an Afghani, a Muslim, or at least probably someone not named YestirDay. Melyssa thinks it’s time to tell Arzo’s parents the truth no matter what their reaction may be.
Chantelle Fraservisits Daisy, who’s in bed feeling the effects of radiation and chemo pills. Chantelle and Arzo are the only girls who have reached out to Daisy since the entire group found out about her cancer. Demetria and Geneva Thomas have been on radio silence since the “big reveal” last week, apparently. Well, maybe Geneva can’t catch a cab to visit Daisy. But what’s Demetria’s excuse? Chantelle interviews that she’s afraid for Daisy and she wants to be a support system for her. The two discuss last episode’s brunch, during which Arzo and Chantelle got into it over the “Afghan Hound” comment. Chantelle’s ready to get over it. In the mean time, she does Daisy a solid by helping her clean up her closet!
