Last week’s announcement of a mass exodus of Southern Charm stars is dredging up a lot. Naomie Olindo, Chelsea Meissner, and Cameran Eubanks all announced that they would not be returning next season. Since then, alums Landon Clements, Ashley Jacobs, and Thomas Ravenel have all made statements denouncing the show. And one name has been coming up a lot in the midst of it all. Kathryn Dennis. The show underdog has come a long way since her first season. She became a social outcast during her time with Thomas; slighted from Patricia Altschul’s fabulous dinner parties. Those kind of invites make or break you in Charleston. This is old news though. Why is Kathryn’s name coming up so much now? And does Kathryn have anything to do with the exiting cast falling out of love with their amazing reality TV gig?
It was Kathryn that was allegedly spreading rumors that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly had a mistress. According to the supposed mistress that is. And Naomie and Chelsea. Landon called Kathryn a, “bad apple that can ruin the whole bunch.” While Kathryn has become the Charm darling of late, it does call to question the power of post-production editing when so many cast members put out contradicting statements. Ashley said the cast enabled Kathryn, while Thomas called out the editing process. Was that a dig at Kathryn? Or does Thomas still want to be vindicated for the way he was “portrayed”?
There is a lot of Southern Charm drama this week. Kathryn Dennis got called out for referring to an African American woman with a monkey emoji. Cameran Eubanks announced that she left the show. Rumors swirled that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair. The accused mistress denied the rumors and maintained that she had never met Cameran and Jason. Cameran even publicly supported her by liking and sharing her post. This woman also claimed that Kathryn started the rumor, a story that Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner corroborated in their Instagram Stories. Oh, and Naomie and Chelsea are gone from the show too.
Thomas Ravenel chimed in to denounce the show. He claimed that they asked him to return, which is doubtful considering the sexual assault of it all. Kathryn’s longtime nemesis Landon Clements shared her two cents. And now, Thomas’ ex Ashley Jacobs is bashing Kathryn and the whole Southern Charm cast.
Things are heating up in Charleston. Even though Southern Charm isn’t currently on the air, the stars of the show are still stirring up drama on social media. Earlier this week, Cameran Eubanks took to Instagram to confirm that she would not be returning to the show. With rumors swirling as to why she came to this decision, Cameran responded with a lengthy statement shooting down vicious rumors about her marriage.
But sadly, it seems Cameran is just the first of many Southern Charm cast members to leave the series. None other than Thomas Ravenel has broken his silence about the current standing of the show. And if he’s telling the truth (for once), the show is in for a serious shakeup.
Can someone please explain why women are still romantically interested in disgraced Southern Charm alum Thomas Ravenel? Is there something in the water down in Charleston? As an outsider, I just don’t see the appeal at all.
But, the confusion doesn’t stop there. Apparently, Thomas is expecting his third child. And no, it’s not with Kathryn Dennis this time around. Allegedly, of course.
Let’s face it. Season 6 of Southern Charm was not the greatest. There seemed to be a spark missing from the series. It is almost as if some of the charm of the show disappeared. Thomas Ravenel departed after Season 5 in a cloud of ugly legal issues. Kathryn Dennis was more private, possibly due to her legal wrangling with Thomas over custody of their children. Shep Rose appeared to have turned into that angry old man who lives on the corner.
Rumors about whether or not the show would return started cropping up in the fall, as Southern Charm has traditionally filmed during that time of year. Austen Kroll confirmed last November that the show had not yet started filming. In the same month, Craig Conover hinted Southern Charm would be returning, but offered little in the way of details. Now, there is some dish to share about the future of our charmers.
Are the cameras rolling for Southern Charm Season 7? God, I hope so. I just need to know what’s really going on with Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel. No, I don’t want Thomas back on my TV screen, but I would like some explanation from Kathryn about their kids-free hangouts.
How did they go from solely seeing each other in the courtroom to hanging out and posting photos together? That’s great for co-parenting, but is that all? Is there more between the two exes? Thomas’s infamous ex Ashley Jacobs shared her thoughts on the possible rekindling.
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.
