Can you smell the magnolias? Do you taste the sweet tea vodka? Have you heard the latest Southern Charm gossip? Bravo has to be gearing up for the latest season of everyone’s guiltiest pleasure because the stories are slowly “leaking” to the public, just in time to pique the interest of viewers.
Obviously, despite some of the cast trying to create their own drama, the main focus of the show has been the tumultuous, roof-raising, bourbon swilling, aircraft carrier sprinting, dinner party meltdowning, May December October, on-again, off-again, all the way off romance between the very young, feisty, uncensored Kathryn Dennis and the aging playboy everyone hates to love Thomas Ravenel. If that crazy pair can’t make it, the rest of us are doomed!
Craig, not known for following through on his many lofted plans, traveled to Haiti to do a little charity work. With his girlfriend Naomie, they spent Thanksgiving volunteering with the organization I’m ME, which aims to end orphan cycle in Haiti. Naomie has certainly had a positive affect on Craig!
Photos of Craig and Naomie’s service trip are below.
Bravo is finding more reasons for us to stay tuned in on their channel. They’ve announced the renewals of three shows: Southern Charm, Million Dollar ListingNew York and Shahs of Sunset. They’ve also announced the addition of three new shows coming soon: Southern Charm Savannah, First Family of Hip Hop and Relative Success with Tabatha.
Late last week Kathryn took to Twitter and Instagram to share that she was not returning to the show for its fourth season, saying the producers weren’t interested in showing the new version of her. She said she was moving on from the show and focusing on her two children, but now she has us wondering if it was all part of a plan to put a little pressure on the producers to sign her on?
Well this is some bad news for fans of Kathryn Dennis! She confirmed that she’s no longer a part of the cast of Southern Charm for season 4.
Kathyrn took to Twitter to announce that she wanted to be a part of the new season, but they weren’t interested. She shared, “Was excited to show the new me on #SouthernCharm but they aren’t interested. I want to thank my fans for EVERYTHING and wish #SC4 luck!”
Well this is a first! Someone other than Thomas Ravenel is exiting the hot mess express otherwise known as Southern Charm. And, in a somewhat ironic twist of events, the controversial cast member who constantly threatens to quit (but never does) is confirming the hit show’s fourth season.
Y’all know what that means… I’m going to be fan girling all the cast’s favorite hot spots here in the Holy City (and hopefully eating some delicious food while I’m at it!) as the crew begins filming for the upcoming season. Cash in some of your mailbox money and pour yourself a dressing drink – they are back! Well, most of them, at least.
Say what you will about Southern Charm’sShepard “Shep” Rose (as if you need my permission to do that!), but his gregarious nature is often a much needed reprieve from his cast mate’s incessant drama. Shep is always quick to call things like he sees them with his self-deprecating humor and a twinkle in his eye. Even the most boorish and insensitive comments from the fratastic playboy with mailbox money come across with a boyish sort of, well, charm.
Even on the two-part reunion, Shep’s affable personality garnered laughs from his co-stars. He continued to champion for including Kathryn Dennis while honestly calling her out for terrifying Whitney Sudler-Smith on Scary Jeckyl Island. During the first installment, he also shared some of his own antics that lead to mixed reactions from fans. Now Shep is offering his opinion on everything from Patricia Altshul’s decision not to attend the reunion and nature’s bounty–mushrooms.
It’s not an actual Bravo reunion unless someone storm off stage, right? After last week’s Southern Charm reunion installment, I had high (as in elevated, not on something) hopes for the final hour. In response to Landon Clements giddily calling out Kathryn Dennis for failing a court ordered drug test, Kathryn high tails it to the saloon, kicking up tumbleweeds in her wake. Okay, so she really just barricades herself in her dressing room. She is finally cajoled out of hiding by a producer, worried that this type of chatter from her cast mates could affect her custody battle with Thomas Ravenel, as Cameran Eubanks, Landon, and Whitney Sudler-Smith complain to Andy that this is how it is to have to film with her for the show.
Kathryn returns to the stage as quickly as she fled, giving Andy Cohena big “no comment” to any questions about said drug test. When T-Rav interjects to educate us on how far back the hair follicle test can check for illegal substances, Kathryn counters that he didn’t take the same test she took. His test wasn’t as far-reaching as to how many months back it could indicate drug use, and he shaved his entire body to make sure he couldn’t give a body hair sample (which apparently can detect use up to six months prior, as opposed to hair from one’s scalp). Science!
