One of the things many fans of Southern Charm know is that the show usually films in the fall. Viewers are treated to the change of seasons in Charleston from sultry late summer days to crisp fall weather. The beautiful scenery is a part of the draw of the show, almost like another cast member. This year, the word is out that the show has not been filming as usual.
No fall filming? And no Kathryn Dennis parading around in eclectic seasonal fashions straight from the racks of Gwynn’s? The cast has been mostly mum on season 7 filming, but some information has leaked out. Shep Rose claimed not to know if there would be another season, but did confirm that the cast was not filming back in October. Co-star Craig Conover recently hinted there would be a season 7, but gave no specifics. While Craig and Shep were a little mysterious about filming, cast member Austen Kroll has spilled a few additional details that sound hopeful for a new season.
Austen Kroll was in the strangest love/friendship triangle last season on Southern Charm. And, no, I’m not referring to that video they played with Austen and two women during every single episode.
Austen’s biggest struggle last season was trying to please his girlfriend Madison LeCroy and his close friend Shep Rose. In an exclusive interview with Reality Tea during BravoCon, Austen talked on how difficult it is for him to balance both of those relationships.
Southern Charm is all about the boys club and their antics, but there is one woman who has been around since day one: Cameran Eubanks.
She has been a confidante during rough times and she’s not afraid to dish out some tough love when necessary. Her good friend Craig Conover has truly got his act together, sewing pillows and opening restaurants. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Shep Rose. He just keeps inserting his foot into his mouth over and over again. Last season was rough for Shep. The off-season was even worse when he posted that video mocking a homeless woman collecting cans. He made things worse when he defended himself, but eventually apologized. But, was it too little too late? Can Shep redeem himself at this point? Cameran dished on that possibility in an exclusive interview with Reality Tea during BravoCon.
To say that it’s been a tough year for Kathryn Dennis would not be descriptive enough. The Southern Charm star has really gone through it. This past year has been dominated by her very public custody issues with her ex Thomas Ravenel, who also spent a majority of the year facing sexual assault charges. I feel like that man basically lived at the courthouse.
Kathryn and Thomas co-parent their kids Kenzie and Saint. It hasn’t been smooth sailing though. They have been battling it out for custody and accusing each other of some nasty things in a super public forum. However, things have finally turned around for our favorite redhead, which she discussed in an exclusive interview with Reality Tea during BravoCon.
Wait. Did hell freeze over? Are pigs flying? There’s actually some positive news in Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel’s highly-documented custody issues. Yes, the Southern Charm star and former cast member (sorry, Thomas) are finally on the same page when it comes to their kids Kensie and Saint.
There has been a lot of drama between these two. Kathryn allegedly didn’t tell Thomas that she got in a car accident while their kids were present. A friend of his accused Kathryn of burglary. A video surfaced of Thomas allegedly doing drugs. Kathryn claimed that Thomas launched a fully-decorated Christmas tree at her and drunkenly fell in a pool while he was holding their daughter. Thomas accused Kathryn of going to rehab to cover up getting an abortion. And those are just the very recent stories. There’s a lot more drama in their history. There’s no word of what it took for them to put all the madness behind them, but they seem to be in a truly better place these days.
Southern Charm’s Craig Conover was a man with a dream. An unusual dream, to be sure. He wanted to make pillows. Craig found something he loved to do and hoped to start a business based on his passion–which is many people’s fantasy, isn’t it? However, Craig wasn’t quite sure how to turn his love of sewing into a business reality, as viewers witnessed over several seasons.
Unfortunately, Craig had many pillow naysayers along the way. Former girlfriend Naomie Olindo was doubtful of his ambition and follow through. Shep Rose made fun of Craig’s lack of direction. Matriarch Patricia Altschul had to put a planned pillow collaboration with Craig on hold because of his inability to complete the work. Co-star Cameran Eubanks has also been hard on Craig over the years. Now, Cameran is making amends for some of the doubt she has expressed about Craig and his pillow dreams.
While we wait for an official announcement about Southern Charm’s return, viewers are still recovering from
Shep Rose the multitude of drama the stars gave us in Season 6. Not only were we tortured by the reappearance of Ashley Jacobs, fans were also introduced to recent college graduate, Eliza Limehouse. We can blame Eliza for bringing Ashley back, but it’s safe to say Thomas Ravenel’s ex wasn’t the one who brought class and sophistication to the show.
We can save that honor for Madison LeCroy. As Patricia Altschul’s hair stylist, Madison could also call herself Austen Kroll’s girlfriend. Because unemployed men with zero ambition and friends like Shep are a hot commodity in Charleston! Austen tested Madison’s boundaries when he was busted having a threesome. Madison tested Austen’s nerves when she wouldn’t take any of Shep’s misogynist garbage. By the time the cast reunited for the reunion, Austen and Madison were sadly no more. Well, now that
filming is about to start the holidays are approaching, we might have been given an early gift. Love is in the air! Sorry single gals and guys, it looks like Austen might be off the market again.
