Southern Charm’s Shep Rose is someone who lives life on his own terms. Shep generally does and says whatever he pleases, which sometimes can get him into trouble. Last year, he made fun of a homeless woman in an Instagram post, resulting in him apologizing and shutting down his Twitter account for a time. Shep has also had dust-ups with co-stars, including Craig Conover and Madison LeCroy, and even got into a Twitter feud with The Rock.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright called out Shep on Watch What Happens Live last week for his behavior at their wedding. When asked which one of their guests’ behavior was the most annoying at their summer nuptials, the couple bestowed the honor on Shep. He had posted pictures of their wedding online, including Brittany walking down the aisle. Understandably, neither Jax nor Brittany were happy about it. As usual, Shep had something to say about the matter and took to social media to defend himself.
Bravo viewers have seen many businesses (and business ideas) come and go throughout the years. For most of the drama-filled launch parties we have witnessed on these shows, the actual business doesn’t go anywhere. It seemed like that might have been Craig Conover’s fate when he first started sewing. However, the Southern Charm star has proven the haters wrong.
He finally got that pillow line off the ground. He’s been on tour to promote the product. Even Cameran Eubanks admitted that she was eating crow in the wake of Craig’s pillow empire. Now, he has taken a major step forward. Craig’s line, Sewing Down South has made its debut on the Home Shopping Newtwork. She By Sheree and Alexis Couture could never.
I am still shook after Kathryn Dennis posted a NEW photo hanging out with Thomas Ravenel. The picture of the Southern Charm stars did not include their two children, Kensie and Saint. So, what was the deal?
The Southern Charm fandom was in a flutter. Why were these two hanging out? Especially after everything they’ve been through. Are they back together? It was tough not to wonder, at least for the Southern Charm super fans. Well, Kathryn didn’t remove the ability to comment on that photo, so, of course, she got a lot of questions about their relationship status.
Throughout history we cling to tales of true love and triumph over adversity. We root for an underdog couple to find their way, despite the limits of society and last call at 2am. But sometimes Cupid’s arrow falls a bit short of the happily ever after scenario. Just ask Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis. If we’re being honest, Kathryn and Thomas’ photo should be front and center beside the definition of “messy” in the dictionary. Thankfully, Southern Charm managed to capture their budding relationship, their mutual substance abuse issues, and ultimately their downfall.
But Kathryn and Thomas did have two beautiful children as a result of their union. They also had rage-fueled fights and disturbing revelations. Not to mention a custody battle where Thomas deposed most of the cast and Kathryn’s My Size Barbie from 1994. After Thomas’
descent into madness unfortunate experience with a nanny and subsequent arrest, he got the boot. While some viewers cheered his absence, others noticed a gaping hole of drama was exposed and the show was difficult to watch. The rumor mill has been saying Southern Charm hasn’t been filming due to a cast shake up and a drought of action. So what is a girl to do about this? Stunt Queen, party of two – your table is ready.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot in Summer 2019. Fans will get to see it all play out this season on the show, but will it be a Pump Rules/ Southern Charm crossover? It just might be.
Shep Rose did attend the big event and he has the distincion of being “the worst wedding guest ever,” or at least thats how Jax and Brittany feel.
Naomie Olindo has been on Southern Charm for four seasons, first as a recurring cast member who was introduced as the girlfriend of Craig Conover. After their split, Naomie continued on the show and became a full-time cast member last season. Although Southern Charm fans initially got to know Naomie through her relationship and difficult breakup with Craig, she has taken on more of a role in the show over time.
We have seen Naomie complete her education and eventually open up her own clothing business. Last season, she shared her new romance with boyfriend Metul Shah. Another thing we have learned about Naomie is the strong connection she has with her parents. Her mother and father appeared on Southern Charm several times, including when they were opening up a restaurant in the Charleston area, which Naomie was involved in. Sadly, Naomie just shared some heartbreaking news about her father.
I hate to say you told me so, but you told me so. Yep, it sounds like Southern Charm is in ICU and the prognosis isn’t looking too great. It might be time to call friends and family members and get out your favorite black outfit. By all accounts, the show is in trouble. I’ll say it, the current cast is circling the drain because Thomas Ravenel departed. We don’t have a lot of people bringing interest to the table these days. No one seemed fascinated by Austen Kroll’s journey in trying to be a boy toy and Shep Rose has less personality and dignity than Naomie Olindo’s cat.
If the truth hurts, this will too. The ladies of the cast are leaving fans high and dry. Cameran Eubanks was the voice of reason when the show began, now she is the voice of judgment and often glosses over her friends’ shitty behavior. Chelsea Meissner is lovely but dang, she lacks a life. Since her “love interest” is some dude on a boat at sea, there are no relationship storylines for her. Kathryn Dennis is drama personified but not legally able to speak about certain things. Quite frankly her moods were so strange last season, fans constantly wondered if she was either on something or just checked out. Now we are hearing production has delayed filming through January, and you know what that usually means. Are we watching one of Bravo’s old favorites taking it’s last few breaths?
It just goes to show the old cliché is true. There might be someone out there for everyone! Exhibit A: Ashley Jacobs. The former
victim girlfriend of Southern Charm alum, Thomas Ravenel, has certainly been unlucky in love. During her reality television stint we saw Ashley plucked from the polo fields of Santa Barbara and plopped in the swamp by Thomas’ guest house. Ashley made quite an impression on the cast and viewers alike, as in nobody wanted to be around her in any capacity. Ashley’s fondness for torturing Kathryn Dennis after her daily ritual of gaslighting by Thomas became exhausting.
Thomas and Ashley’s relationship was anything but conventional. It was toxic at best and Ashley seemed to embrace her role as the Villian of Charleston proper. She managed to alienate most everyone, eventually Thomas had enough of her antics as well. After a brief return to the show last season, Ashley figured out
everyone hates her she needed to head back to sunny California to start over. Now Ashley is spinning the wheel of love once again, and this time she landed on someone without an AARP card.
