If you thought that Landon Clements looked familiar when she first joined Southern Charm, you might have caught on to something. No, you’re not going crazy. You might have actually seen her before on another TV series. Pre-Southern Charm, Landon appeared on the iconic reality series The Hills.
Wait. What!? She was on the show because she was friends with both Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag. Not only that, but Landon also worked for events producer Brent Bolthouse, where Heidi also “worked.”
The people at MTV even approached Landon about being a full-time cast member, but she turned them down. Umm, come again?! The Hills was such a major television phenomenon. How could she not be into that? Well, it turns out that Landon had some pretty valid reasons to decline the offer.
I don’t know if I’m the only one who feels this way, but ever since Jennifer Snowden emerged as the sidekick to Kathryn Dennis on Southern Charm, I want to know what her deal is. Who is she and what is she about? So naturally I tried to find out more about her with some social media stalking.
As expected, her Twitter was full of tweets showing her loyalty to Kathryn and her Instagram was full of pictures with the cast and captions that tell her followers where they can shop to emulate her style. But one of those posts took me aback. The caption tells her followers where they can get her pretty necklace, but I didn’t even notice. The only thing I saw was a burgeoning baby bump. I’m wondering what I missed, so of course I did a little more investigation.
T-Rav heads to JD’s to vent about what happened in Aiken. He reveals that when he threatened not to co-sign Kathryn’s lease, she became so distraught that she had to be hospitalized. Thomas worries about the risks of his son being born prematurely, and he’s ready to write his name on the bottom line. JD warns that his friend doesn’t need to fall prey to any manipulation on Kathryn’s part. T-Rav definitely believes he’s being manipulated, but he blames Jennifer for pulling the puppet strings. Ever since she wanted more from him after their drunken fling (Thomas’ words, not mine), she’s been instigating and doing her best to upset Kathryn by tracking his every move on social media and sharing it with Kathryn. Of course, if it’s on social media, can’t Kathryn find out about T-Rav’s shenanigans herself? The pair both seem rather adept at Twitter rants and Instagram shade.
Andy starts out reading one of Kathryn Dennis’s tweets from tonight to get Thomas’s thoughts on them. (see them all at the end of this post) The Tweet he read was, “I’ve heard a lot, I’ve read a lot. & I’ll only say this: Thomas knows what to do and what to stop doing to see his children.” Thomas plays dumb and says he doesn’t know what she’s referring to.
I no longer dread Mondays thanks to the dear cast members of Southern Charm. Whether they are unpacking wedding gifts in the eleventh hour to host a dinner party or channeling their inner Knight Rider to escape a polo match, there is something mesmerizing about this crew. That said, while I love the light-hearted friendships and silly situations, the darkness that is starting to overshadow the show is sad. These are real people. Y’all know that…you follow them on social media! Let’s get started with last night’s recap, shall we?
As the charmers prepare for another day in the Holy City, Craig Conover is channeling his inner Ryan Serhant with his monochromatic shirt and tie combo. He’s hoping to beat JD into the office because HashtagNewCraig is a go-getter. Across town, Shepard “Shep” Rose is facetiming with his mom and relishing in being a home owner. Not only is he glad to not be bunking at Sullivan’s with Whitney Sudler-Smith, the ladies dig his home ownership. It makes Shep look like he’s got his shiz together…and that’s going to be important if he expects the city’s Board of Architectural Review to green light an above-ground pool and bar on his roof.
As with every episode, the show begins with each charmer starting a new day in the Holy City. Negotiating a real estate contract reminds Cameran just how much she loves being a modern Southern woman. Her place doesn’t have to be in the kitchen (or in the nursery) – she can have a career! She just needs husband Jason to pick up an ink cartridge for the printer on his way home so she can commence with commerce. Scarlett O’Hara was also a modern Southern woman, but even she knew when to call in reinforcements. Cameran reveals that after two years of marriage, Jason is ready for a baby. Unfortunately, Cameran’s biological clock has yet to start ticking, but she’s building up to some mild domestication with a practice round–she’s planning a dinner party for her friends.
To quote my favorite now defunct VH1 show, Kathryn Dennis may be having the Best Week Ever. Not only did the unfiltered, controversial Southern Charm star look stunning on Monday’s Watch What Happens Live–I’ll refrain from commenting on all of the hair flipping, except for this sentence :), but she’s gaining support of fans who once just loved to hate her.
On the heels of this week’s Southern Charmpremiere, the mother of two-year-old Kensie and five-month-old St. Julien with on-again-off-again-WAY-OFF-AGAIN boyfriend and old school scoundrel (I mean that in the most charming of ways) Thomas Ravenel is opening up about the duo’s tumultuous relationship. And this time, she’s not airing her dirty laundry on various forms of social media with snarky tweets and passive aggressive status updates. Instead, Kathryn is articulately discussing why she and T-Rav just don’t work. Is our favorite little strumpet maturing into a force to be reckoned with? I’d say so!
