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.
Craig Conover had a mostly good season on Southern Charm this year, despite some hiccups along the way. He finally kicked it into gear to take steps to get his online pillow business started, which he later called Sewing Down South. Craig moved on from pining over his ex Naomie Olindo. He also revealed at the cast reunion that some of his erratic behavior during the season was due to his problem with Adderall, which he seems to have conquered.
It was exciting to see the positive changes in Craig after years of stagnation. Of course, we all want updates on what he has been up to since last season. Southern Charm fans know that the show usually films in the fall and it appears the cast is not currently filming. Shep Rose even stated on a recent podcast that he didn’t know if there was going to be another season. Say it ain’t so! But, what is the real truth about a possible season 7 of the show?
Finally some good news regarding Shep Rose. And boy does he need it. Last year, fans of Southern Charm saw a more sinister side of Shep. He engaged in a one-man battle with Austen Kroll’s latest paramour because she
rejected him wouldn’t take his crap. He further maligned his buddy’s life by bringing two escorts women Austen had previously not hooked up with to a party. If that wasn’t enough, Shep may or may not have passed an STD along to Danni Baird back in the day. Of course he felt the need to share this with loose-lipped Austen. Danni, who literally does nothing to anyone, suffered in the fallout of that alleged medical mishap.
After filming wrapped Shep’s reputation didn’t improve. He received a great deal of valid backlash after shaming a homeless woman on social media. That stupid stunt caused Shep to delete his Twitter and crawl into a cocoon of shame. Thankfully, Shep’s off-camera life now seems to be in an upswing. After the Bahamas was basically leveled in the wake of Hurricane Dorian, Shep actually stepped in to help. Let’s hope this positive move is the first step on his redemption tour.
Well, well, what do we have here? Have we lost another Bravo show? This is the time of year Southern Charm is in production, yet word on the street is no one is filming. The Charleston show was knee-deep in the swamps last season. We had Austen Kroll thinking he was Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Then there was the STD scandal, courtesy of Austen’s then-girlfriend, Madison LeCroy. And of course, Kathryn Dennis did not disappoint in her continued struggle to navigate motherhood and sobriety.
So what gives? We haven’t heard any rumblings about the show being axed and there is seemingly no reason why cameras shouldn’t be rolling. Unless Bravo and Haymaker are too involved with active lawsuits brought on by former cast members. Is it possible we have seen the end of Craig Conover’s pillow making empire? Will viewers be left hanging on the threads of Shep Rose’s non-existent love life? In a new interview, Shep gives an update on the future of Southern Charm. If there is a future.
Can you believe it has been over a month since the finale of Southern Charm? Although it might not have been the most exciting season, it was still enjoyable spending time with the Charleston gang. We watched Cameran Eubanks grow into motherhood. Kathryn Dennis mostly laid low, in the midst of an ugly custody battle with ex Thomas Ravenel. Austen Kroll spent the season in relationship drama with Madison Lecroy. And Shep Rose, well, he somehow morphed into the world’s oldest, angriest frat boy.
Craig Conover had his share of ups and downs during Season 6. He began to move on from ex Naomie Olindo, but later revealed during the reunion that he had been battling a problem with Adderall. Despite Craig’s issues, he finally started to move forward with his pillow business, Sewing Down South. It was great to see him start to come into his own. Craig also just announced another venture into business, Mesu, a Mexican-sushi fusion restaurant in Charleston.
Southern Charm’s Craig Conover has always been a little slow to follow up with his goals. Viewers watched for several seasons while Craig procrastinated about taking the bar exam. His girlfriend at the time, Naomie Olindo, frequently expressed frustration with his easy-going approach to life. Co-star Shep Rose made fun of Craig for his lack of direction. When Craig had an opportunity to partner with Patricia Altschul on a pillow project, he failed to follow through with deadlines and she was forced to put the project on hold.
This year, however, Craig seems to be more ambitious. He has started an online pillow business, Sewing Down South, even selling out in an hour at his first in-store appearance. Now, Craig is expending his horizons even further, with his announcement that he has ventured into the restaurant business.
As much as Shep Rose can’t stand being around Madison LeCroy, his adamant objections have pretty much guaranteed that he will be around her even more. His very vocal opinions have not done much to sway her on-again-off-again boyfriend Austen Kroll.
However, the tension between Shep and Madison means that it is very likely that she will be around for another season of Southern Charm. She contributed a lot more to the last season than most of the full-time cast members. If Shep managed to ignore her or just rein in his emotions, Madison would not have made as big of a splash that she did. Since Shep and Madison will (probably) have to hang out in the near future, Madison weighed in on what he would have to do for her to enjoy the experience.
Labor Day means a long weekend, which usually translates to some fun times with family and friends. Some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members headed down to Cabo to celebrate Lala Kent’s twenty-ninth birthday. Lala posted a photo in her birthday suit. Stassi Schroeder posed with a sombrero on. Katie Maloney showed off her assets for the camera as well.
Meanwhile, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright went out of the way to make sure that their social media followers knew that they missed their flights to Cabo just in case anyone wondered if they weren’t invited. And I can’t blame them given Jax’s other cast feuds.
