Even with all of the Kathryn Dennis vs. Ashley Jacobs drama this season on Southern Charm, one of the most shocking moments of the season was when Kathryn revealed that she and Shep Rose have hooked up several times since her daughter was born. Somehow this never made it onto the show, but I cannot help wondering about it.
Andy wasted no time jumping into the interrogation. He asked, “Who initiated the first hookup when you guys started up again?” Shep shared, “Well, we met up in one of my bars. We had a couple drinks and it was just like on fire again.” Where was the Southern Charm camera crew this night? This would have made for an amazing episode.
Andy wondered, “How many times have you hooked up?” Shep admitted, “Total? Probably like six or seven.” Even Andy couldn’t help uttering, “Wow.”
The invasive questions continued and Shep’s answers continued to be both informative and entertaining. Andy asked, “Would you consider yourself Kathryn’s booty call?” Shep answered, “Well, originally I was and we were each other’s booty call. Then she fell back with Whitney [Sudler-Smith] and Thomas [Ravenel] and I was just like ‘No, no, no.'” Wait. What? Is he talking about Season 1 of Southern Charm or is he talking about when they rekindled the hookup? I need a clarification and a full timeline of events.
Andy couldn’t help asking, “You’re saying she got back with Whitney though?” Shep seemed visibly flustered and just said, “There was a time, the first time we hooked up, when I wasn’t sure who was who… the timing.” Alright then.
The questions just kept on coming (insert obvious joke here). Andy asked, “Do you go on dates first or cut right to it?” Without hesitation, Shep said, “No. No.” Shep backpedaled and clarified, “I would go on a date with her! But we’re both sort of like…”
Andy asked Shep, “Do you have sleepovers? Is there a stay over?” Shep revealed, “Yes. She would wear a lot of makeup and I was having to wash my sheets a little too much so we would get in the shower first.” Again, I can’t help wondering where the Southern Charm camera crew was.
And then he got to the big question: “Did anyone in the cast know about you two before it was revealed on the show?” And once again, I can’t tell which era Shep is discussing. Is he talking about Season 1 of the show or more recent times? Shep said, “Well, yeah because I kind of stole her from Craig [Conover]. Craig was courting her, but he slept with her in the bed for two nights in a row and didn’t try anything. So I swooped in and was like ‘I’ll try some things.'” And he sure did try some things. Multiple times- apparently.
It was entertaining enough listening to Shep’s revelations about the Kathryn hookups, but of course, every conversation about this season leads to Thomas‘ super polarizing girlfriend Ashley. A fan asked Shep, “Have you ever disliked a friend’s girlfriend before this?” Shep confessed, “Not in such a public manner. She was so emboldened and walking around like she owned the place. What she should have been doing was [saying] ‘I’m really sorry about last night’ because we were having a good time.”
Shep revealed, “She said some things that were so inappropriate. You don’t even know. The audience doesn’t even know the half of what she actually said.” Where is that footage? There better be a Secrets Revealed episode of Southern Charm at the end of the season. This season has been too good. I’m not ready for it to end.
TELL US- ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT SHEP & KATHRYN WERE ABLE TO KEEP THEIR HOOKUPS A SECRET FOR SO LONG? WOULD SHEP & KATHRYN BE A GOOD COUPLE? DO YOU WANT ASHLEY TO BE ON SOUTHERN CHARM NEXT SEASON?
