southern charm shep 

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.

As for Patricia Altschul’s All Male Review Dinner Party, Shep says he enjoyed it. “Patricia always throws great parties, top shelf everything. So yes, it was fun.” He does add that the tension – and subsequent argument – between Thomas Ravenel and Whitney was a bit ridiculous, if not gauche. Especially considering it happened in the presence of fine china and copulating alligators! Clutching his pearls, Shep comments, “I thought the fight was a little embarrassing and ill-timed. But they said what they needed to and moved past it.” At the Founders Ball with his new victim date, Shep claims that knowing how to bust a move on the dance floor comes in handy with the ladies when one is trying to, em, stock up on their “Vitamin P.” “Knowing how to dance seldom hurts your chances,” he says. But Shep’s chances with first-date-girl did not pan out exactly how he’d planned: “We had a fun night, but she was well behaved, despite my pleas,” he says. Looks like he’ll have to get back to the bar scene to scrounge up another hapless Mrs. Right Now. But he’s just so darn cute while being a cad!
