Ba-ba-doo. Southern Charm is back and looking very different this year. Since ending last season, none of us are the same. There’s been COVID-19 outbreaks, the BLM movement, and an entire election. If you’ve been somehow stayed off of social media and the reality news through all this, let me catch you up. So far, Kathryn Dennis cried that she was called racist for using an obviously racist monkey emoji towards a black woman. Fucking YIKES. Also, her ex-, Thomas Ravenel, was literally FORCED (not compelled) to apologize for sexually assaulting their nanny.

This show is trash and packed with scum. Literally episodes had to be taken down due to the amount of racist and cringe they depicted. This season, however, we welcome Iranian mother, Leva Bonaparte who has seemingly buddied up Craig Conover in the first few episodes. By the way, am I the only one finding this season completely scripted and weird?

Craig recently did an interview with Decider and shared some of his thoughts on the newest cast-mate. When asked about having her on the cast full time Craig said, “Oh, it was great! Leva’s always been around.” That’s right! For those who missed it, Leva is actually close friends with former cast-member, Cameran Eubanks.

Similar to Cameran, Leva has made it clear that she isn’t about to take any bullshit from the likes of Kathryn. I’m very here for it. From the sounds of it, Craig is too. He shared, “The people that joined this year did a really good job. And by doing a good job, all that consisted of was being herself and saying what you would usually say even if the cameras weren’t there.” YOU TELL THEM CRAIGY!!

Craig continued,  “You’re not performing. You’re just being transparent. I think in the past few years, we’ve been lacking that with the girls. If I’m being honest, I don’t think they were being that transparent, all of them. This year, they are. And it’s great.” I mean I agree. But lets not just leave it to the “girls”, shall we? By the way, they’re grown women, refer to them as such.

But anyways. The men on this show are all fake as hell too. I won’t even name names but there’s been secret three-somes, making fun of a person who is homeless on Insta (while preaching acceptance on Twitter), oh and don’t forget the fucker who assaulted his nanny. Yup. That last one is disgusting enough to include in this story twice.

Now, back to bigger and better things. Craig also said about Leva, “Leva and I have known each other for 10 years, and I joined her and her husband’s restaurant group last year. It was fun having her. She’s got a lot of opinions and isn’t scared to say them. It was a fun surprise, to be around someone who was speaking their mind.”

If you’re someone still deciding if this season will be worth it or not, I can’t say. But I do think, a change is coming. Maybe Leva’s energy will bring some accountability to this crew for once. Buckle up!

TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT LEVA SO FAR? WAS KATHRYN A SNAKE TO IMMEDIATELY ATTACK CAMERAN’S MARRIAGE ONCE SHE WASN’T AROUND TO DEFEND HERSELF? WILL CRAIG BE FORCED TO PICK A SIDE? WHO DO YOU THINK CRAIG WAS SHADING ABOUT NOT BEING “TRANSPARENT”?
