Patricia Altschul always functioned as the matriarch of Southern Charm. She offered dating advice to cast members and played matchmaker with her themed dinner parties. Landon Clements and Thomas Ravenel never worked out and both cast members quit the show, but it looks like Patricia has a new protege in Madison LeCroy.
Patricia is not the only cast member that has an opinion about Madison and Austen Kroll’s relationship. But no one throws shade quite like Patricia, sipping a drink in her parlor with the man she really wants to see Madison dating. On last week’s episode, John Pringle made it known that he was interested in Madison, and while Patricia couldn’t be more pleased, Austen was left incredulous.
Southern Charm has had a fair amount of recasting this season. The show lost Naomie Olindo, Chelsea Meissner, and Cameran Eubanks. They added new cast members, Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. While Leva is carrying on Cameran’s tradition of beefing with Kathryn Dennis, John is just being another grown-ass man-child chasing unavailable women. Don’t we already have enough of those on the show?
Shep Rose really is the only one we need to get our healthy dose of deadbeat with this franchise. He’s finally old enough, at 40, to use the world girlfriend for goodness sake. He’s really going for the good guy edit this year. Maybe he’s finally taking feedback from his previous years seriously.
The new season of Southern Charm has been eventful so far with the introduction of Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. Neither are shy about giving their opinions, and they’re the shakeup the show needed. Pringle’s infatuation with Madison LeCroy is absolutely going to lead to a feud with Austen Kroll. It’s so messy and so dramatic, but that’s why we love this show. MORE PLEASE!
Kathryn Dennis has been toying with the possibility of making things work with Thomas Ravenel. However, she has to know that’s a horrible idea? Right? What could she be thinking? Going down that road again with Thomas surely is not going to end well for either of them. Something needs to go down that ends them forever. As horrible as that sounds, it’s the only way she will learn her lesson. Here’s hoping!
Leva Bonaparte joined Southern Charm as a close friend of Cameran Eubanks‘, who claims she left the series months before Kathryn Dennis spread rumors about her husband cheating on her. Nevertheless, I can’t help assuming Cam bailed after Kathryn finally gave her a storyline.
Obviously, Leva isn’t Kathryn’s biggest fan. She’s also not a fan of Kathryn’s wardrobe, which is understandable. No shade, but shade.
Many Southern Charm fans miss Cameran Eubanks narrating the show. Some people are hating on her for quitting as soon as Kathryn Dennis brought up rumors about her husband Jason Wimberly cheating.
Even so, for the most part, Cam has been relatively unscathed throughout her reality TV career, which started on MTV’s The Real World. On Southern Charm, she spent most of her time commenting on other people’s lives, keeping hers pretty private. But, perhaps, she was waiting to open up until she could share her story on her own terms.
It certainly seems like Southern Charm star, Austen Kroll is this season’s Chatty Cathy. Austen has had a lot to say about his co-stars in the media as of late. He’s feeling some type of way about Patricia Altschul’s canine-themed caftan line. He’s relieved to no longer carry the burden of Kathryn Dennis throwing herself off the wagon. And his messy storyline with Madison LeCroy kicked off a new batch of relationship issues for him to
whine about contend with.
Speaking of relationship issues, Kathryn has a new man in her life. Her followers got their first look at Chleb Ravenell in July after a pic was posted to Instagram.’Ol Chlebster has been hanging in there and we will surely be hearing more about him. Austen had a chance to work with Chleb and shares his opinion on whether or not the couple are going to set the standard for being
stunt queens a model romance.
During last week’s episode of Southern Charm, Patricia Altschul encouraged new cast member John Pringle to pursue Madison LeCroy… even though Madison was dating Austen Kroll.
Patricia doesn’t think that Austen is good enough for Madison and she dissed his beer company, saying that Madison deserves “Budweiser” instead, I.e. Madison deserves someone with more money and stability. Well, Austen didn’t take too kindly to that and he shaded Patricia’s business pursuits in response.
During the first episode of Southern Charm Season 7, Craig Conover was shocked when Kathryn Dennis ordered a rum and coke. She hasn’t had an alcoholic beverage (on camera) for a few seasons.
In the trailer for this season, Kathryn even mockingly jokes about people saying “She’s off the wagon” in regard to her own behavior. However, Austen Kroll says Kathryn has been drinking for a while and she just didn’t let people know.
