Southern Hospitality Cast Respond to Joe Bradley and Danielle Olivera’s Relationship

The cast of Southern Hospitality is finally commenting on their co-star Joe Bradley’s relationship with Summer House cast member Danielle Olivera. The two Bravo beauties confirmed their romance in November 2023, stating an “instantaneous” connection occurred at BravoCon. “Before we even talked, we were making eye contact from across the room, and you could tell there was some tension there. We were drawn to each other,” Joe explained

Later, during the three-day event, Joe was on a panel and spoke about his interest in Danielle, adding she was “really beautiful.” Before you know it, the two were “making out” and later wound up in Joe’s suite.  Their connection evolved so much that a few weeks later, Joe accompanied Danielle to her Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen appearance and declared, “There’s no turning back now,” officially going public with their new-found love. 

But what do his co-stars have to say? 

Is the Southern Hospitality cast happy for Joe Bradley and Danielle Olivera? 

If you remember Season 1 of Southern Hospitality, Joe was quite the lady’s man. He wound up in a bit of a sticky situation after the ladies exposed him for kissing Mia Alario and confessing feelings for Maddi Reese the same day. So, are his friends at Republic Garden & Lounge surprised by his new fling? 

“Joe falls in love fast,” Emmy Sharrett told Us Weekly. “I’m not surprised that we got a text [saying], ‘Guess who I’m with?’ And then next thing you know, he’s at WWHL, and then next thing you know, they’re all together in Charleston.”

So, in addition to Joe’s trip to NYC to explore the streets of Brooklyn with Danielle, she’s been down South to explore Joe’s life, too. 

“She’s actually here this weekend, and I got some drinks with them Saturday night. They seem good,” TJ Dinch said. “They kind of click.”

What’s next for Danielle and Joe?

Emmy’s boyfriend, Will Kulp, said he’s still trying to figure them out. However, he noted, “It would be nice to see Joe finally happy.”  

The series’ biggest star, Maddi, also noted positive things about the couple, saying it was “fun and exciting” to see Danielle in Charleston. She was super nice, but [she was] also loving [South Carolina], so that was really fun.” 

Both Bravo stars have showcased their quest for love on their respective shows. Danielle has gone through breakups and hook-ups on Summer and Winter House with co-stars and, most recently, Alex Propson. On the other hand, Joe will star in the second season of Southern Hospitality, hitting Bravo on December 7th. Even though this was filmed before his new relationship, it’ll be interesting to see which of his fellow cast members he’ll be flirting it up with this year.
