Southern Charm’s last season was … explosive doesn’t even cover it. Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll’s relationship was like a nightmare rollercoaster ride that you couldn’t help but stay on. It was the first season without Cameran Eubanks and a few other OGs, but that didn’t mean they were low on drama. Plus the show covered issues like the Black Lives Matter movement and confederate statues that were major topics in Charleston last summer. All in the midst of a pandemic. It was a lot.
And now the Southern Charm cast, the boys, in particular, are getting pretty close to the Summer House crew. Fans are anxiously awaiting the mashup with the worst name of all time Summer House Winter Charm. And it looks like Craig Conover might be getting over his recent split with Paige DeSorbo. But all bets are off now that Naomie Olindo is single again. Hopefully, that means she’ll return to the show now that she’s back in the south.
And while there hasn’t been much news about Season 8, Radar Online reports that the show is preparing to film this September. With a few new faces thrown into the mix. A “source” told the news outside that the show is “definitely” coming back with newbies who have been “approved” by some OGs. Sounds like Shep Rose had to give a stamp of approval. Or maybe Patricia Altschul had to determine whether they were Budweiser material or not.

A separate source said it “should be a bigger cast and more fun this year.” The insiders also shared a rumor that Leva Bonaparte’s friend Venita Aspen will be coming on full-time. Venita appeared as a “friend-of” last season. Additionally, three other unidentified newbies will be thrown into the mix. Well, we know it’s probably NOT going to be Metul Shah and Madison’s new mystery man joining the cast.
Maybe Paige will do a flip-flop and move to Charleston. Or Kathryn Dennis‘ new man will take Thomas Ravenel’s place. Otherwise, all bets are off. All I know is if the rumors of Season 8 are true, it’s sure to be filled with a lot of pillow talk.
