If you can’t get enough of Southern Charm, then you’re probably pumped for the premiere of the show’s first spin-off series Southern Charm Savannah. In fact, you will have the opportunity to get a double dose of the Southern drama since the new show is set to air right after the original on Monday nights.
Just like Southern Charm, Southern Charm Savannah revolves around a co-ed group of friends living in the South and trying to balance their personal and professional lives.
Look below for pictures of Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel celebrating Kenzie’s birthday, Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer posing in front of a porta potty Aspen Mountain, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador celebrating Shannon’s birthday, & more.
“I hear the train a comin’, it’s rollin’ round the bend…” and it is called the HOT MESS EXPRESS! That’s right folks, your favorite trust funders and Peter Pans are returning for a new season of Southern Charm, and legal eagle Craig Conover is dishing all about his co-stars and their journey to Bravo-lebrity status.
One of the most endearing things about Craig (in my opinion) is that he is very loyal…and he can’t keep his mouth shut. Whether he’s defending Kathryn Dennis’ honor, competing with Shep Rose, or lunching with Cameran Eubanks, chances are he’s going to say something that could potentially get him in hot water with his friends. I’ll be interested to see if any of them have opinions on Craig’s recent comments. Oh, and side note, our little Craig is growing up so quickly. He’s finally (FINALLY!) taken the bar exam!
Bravo announced the Southern Charm season 4 cast and premiere date this week and we have to say that April 3rd can’t get here soon enough! Although Thomas Ravenel may have given a hint that it might be the last?!
After much back and forth, we were relieved to find that fan favorite Kathryn Dennis returned to the series for at least one more season. Along with Kathryn, we will be meeting newbie Austen Kroll. Also returning for another round are: Craig Conover, Thomas Ravenel, Landon Clements, Cameran Eubanks, and Shep Rose.
Season four of Southern Charm will premiere on April 3rd, but until then, Bravo is sharing a sneak peek video to keep you going until then, and considering that the clip is less than three minutes, there is a whole lot of hot mess to be seen. The new season will be a combination of old, in terms of old habits, and new, like finally a new male cast member on the show, Austen Kroll.
But cast members back for a new season areLandon Clements,Craig Conover, Kathryn Calhoun Dennis, Cameran Eubanks, Shep Rose, and Thomas Ravenel, and if you recall when we last saw our Charleston friends, things were a bit rocky. Thomas and Kathryn are officially uncoupled, and are still trying to find a way to parent Kensie and Saint as platonic partners. The video has Thomas once again making accusations about a drug test, and if the last few days on Twitter are any indication, Kathryn and Thomas have not worked that detail out. (Kathryn says she’s been passing tests consistently, and Thomas says she won’t take one, while Thomas has reportedly decided he doesn’t need to take them at all, despite rumors and accusations).
Have you ever wondered what goes into creating a reality series before it is launched? Before Southern Charm came to Bravo, a “sizzle reel” was created, featuring Thomas Ravenel, Shep Rose, Whitney Sudler-Smith, J.D. Sermet, and a few other Charleston, South Carolina denizens who didn’t make the final cut. Though Craig Conoveris not in the “sizzle reel” he was included in the pitch for Southern Gentlemen, which morphed into Southern Charm.
But while Southern Charm executive producer Whitney-Sudler Smith and Bryan Kestner (who would become one of Southern Charm’s executive producers), with the help of Kestner’s then fiancee, Dawn Price, put the initial pitch together, it was for a show called Southern Gentlemen [view the sizzle reel video here]. Dedicated fans of Southern Charm might remember Bryan Kestner as the person mentioned by Patricia to son Whitney as someone he should consult before going into the restaurant business.
Over the last week or so, several of Kathryn Dennis‘ Southern Charm cast mates have come forward to drop her name, attracting attention, with talk of “imploding friendships” and failed love affairs, but Kathryn has stayed quiet, until now. With season four of Southern Charm coming soon, Kathryn wants to explain why she returned for a new season, and how she sees Southern Charm, and her life, going forward, officially, minus Thomas Ravenel.
Last season was as rough as it could get for Kathryn, as she had just had her son, Saint, and she felt frozen out by most of the cast of Southern Charm, including “baby daddy” Thomas Ravenel. And then, just before the show’s three part reunion, Dennis and Ravenel started battling in court. Kathryn made the decision, which she considers the right decision, to seek help to get her life back on track. Fans can certainly buckle in for a bumpy ride, but Dennis said she feels like she can hold her head up high for the return that almost wasn’t.
