I truly cannot imagine how Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks is feeling right now. First, she confirmed that she would not be returning the show via an Instagram comment. Then, she released a statement slamming rumors that her husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair. She’s having a rough week, to say the least. And the drama just keeps unfolding.
While Cam has been on Southern Charm from day one, she has always managed to keep her private life private. Her husband has remained off of the show. In her statement, Cam explains that vicious rumors like these are the reason why she’s always protected her marriage from reality television. Even though Cam squashed the rumors herself, Jason’s rumored mistress is breaking her silence on the situation.
Charleston based makeup artist Rebecca Leigh Wash was rumored to be Jason’s mistress. But as Us Weekly first reported, she quickly shot down the rumors in an Instagram post. “I have been wrongfully accused of having a relationship with the husband of Cameran Wimberly of Southern Charm. I have never met Jason or Cameran Wimberly in my life. These hurtful accusations are blatant unfounded lies that have shaken me to my core. I am not a religious follower of Southern Charm, but as a makeup artist and resident of the Charleston area, it is impossible to not know who the cast of the show is. I have never laid eyes or interacted with Jason Wimberly, Cameran, or anyone in their beautiful family other than on television,” she writes.
It’s easy to feel so bad for all parties involved in this, but especially Rebecca. And if you’re wondering where these insidious rumors started, you won’t have to look far. “The allegations that this rumor was started by Kathryn Dennis are even more hurtful. I met Kathryn one time in July 2018 when I did her makeup for a photo shoot for a local clothing store,” Rebecca continues.

Rebecca shared, “I have not seen or spoken to Kathryn since. I have only known her in my limited interaction in a professional capacity, and to suggest that I am somehow associated with these allegations is dumbfounding, hurtful, and malicious. I am so sorry to the Wimberly family that someone would cut so low as to attack the core tenant of anyone’s life – their family.”
While Kathryn has yet to comment on the situation, it saddens me to think that she would start a rumor like this. Kathryn has been through her fair share of familial issues. And as a mother, I can’t understand how her focus would be spreading malicious rumors about Cameran, no less. From what we see on the show, Cam seems to keep Kathryn at arms length. It’s unclear to me why she would choose to go after Cam’s marriage. Regardless of her motive, if it really was her that started the rumors, it seems like Kathryn is slipping back into her old ways.
Cameran responded to Rebecca’s statement. She wrote, “It is so sad that this kind, beautiful and innocent girl had to be drug into the mud. I signed up for this by being on TV. She didn’t. @RebeccaWash is the victim here.” I love how Cam always keeps it real. She isn’t trying to play the victim even though she could. It seems like Cam just wants this all to come to an end, and understandably so.
Naomie Olindo then got in on the conversation, taking to her Instagram story. “To all those asking why Cameran, Chelsea [Meissner] and I (and anyone with a life they want to protect) quit the show. It’s sh*t like this. Shame on you @KathrynDennis for this and MANY other things.” I personally would love to know what the “many” other things are that Kathryn has been doing, but her DM’s certainly stand out as a red flag. Obviously they had to be pretty bad for three of the main cast members to quit the series. Regardless, I hope the drama surrounding Cam’s marriage dies down soon.
