Who would have thought that the drama from Madison LeCroy sphere of influence would reverb far beyond the reaches of Southern Charm. That Austen Kroll wouldn’t be the only one affected by her siren song. In the spirit of nautical tales, it never ends well to follow that tune.
Clearly, Madison has further ambitions. That became very clear during the Season 7 reunion, when she revealed her latest target. And now that the full effect of Madison’s “friendship” with A-Rod is front page celebrity news, Cameran Eubanks wanted to share her thoughts about Austen and Madison.
While the coronavirus pandemic took away international travel and late-nights of clubbing for Bravolebrities, they apparently all decided it was a good idea to write a book. Shep Rose and Cameran Eubanks of Southern Charm each wrote books on subjects that couldn’t be more opposite of each other. Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Margaret Josephs is also gearing up to release a memoir, and Jackie Goldschneider says she’s working on her own. Even Lala Kent, who was part of the very real Vanderpump Rules pregnancy pact, wrote a memoir herself.
The list goes on and on, but the only person we sadly won’t be getting a book from this year is Kim Richards, even though she gets to keep a hefty advance from her publisher. And since Dorinda Medley’s firing from the Real Housewives of New York, she’s going to teach us all about making it nice in her own words.
Shep Rose has been a mainstay on Southern Charm since the beginning. He’s a womanizer, a party animal, and a bit of a late bloomer.
And now Shep can add author to the list, as he just released his book Average Expectations: Lessons in Lowering the Bar, about his life, relationships, and his time on the show. I haven’t gotten my hands on a copy yet. However, I’m not exactly dying for life advice from a 40-year-old frat boy who has family money. But at least he knows what it takes to make good TV, unlike Landon Clements.
The current era of Southern Charm‘s main source of controversy is Madison LeCroy, Austen Kroll and their various relationships A-List celebrities (and athletes). But, true fans will never forget where it all started.
It was really the drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis that put the show on the map. It remained a central plot for seasons to come (even in his absence). And while there have been many villains in the show’s history (cough cough Ashley Jacobs), Landon Clements is definitely a name that’s hard to forget.
Throughout the seven seasons of Southern Charm, there have been so many controversies, arguments and scandals that it’s hard to remember them all.
However, there is one villain who may be gone for the show but will never be forgotten — Ashley Jacobs, Thomas Ravenel‘s ex. And Shep Rose is apparently still a little scarred by Ashley’s time on the show, but aren’t we all?
Listen, someone’s gotta bring some charm to Southern Charm. It all just happens to come from one secondary character, Michael The Butler. He sure does bring enough to make up for everyone else’s shit. We have Patricia Altschul to thank for bringing this man into our lives and onto our screens. Though I find the ringing bell to be a bit 17th century, I can appreciate the camp she’s trying to bring. Get yours, Pat.
Michael has been a fan favorite since his first appearance on screen. He’s just a total peach. He is always mixing up a drink, primping some floofy dog, or casually rubbing Cameran Eubanks‘ feet to induce labor. Of course, he and Cam have a special bond. She famously dressed her dog as Michael for Halloween a few years back. A true sign you’ve made it. There’s also the infamous scene of Michael driving through McDonald’s in a Bently. The man, the butler, the legend. Loving this guy is probably the one thing all Bravo fans can agree on.
The one time Cameran Eubanks had a storyline on Southern Charm was the season she never actually appeared on. In her absence, the cast talked about the rumors that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly cheated on her.
There was also speculation that she left the show because of the cheating rumors. Now that Cameran has a book to promote,
she has been exploiting the show that she contributed nothing to she’s been doing a lot of interviews.
Southern Charm looked pretty different this season. For quite a few reasons. It was also our first year without Cameran Eubanks along for the ride. Though she was there in spirit and definitely there in drama.
In case you forgot, the season began with Kathryn Dennis dragging Cameran’s husband, Jason Wimberly through the mud for effectively no reason. Kathryn’s pal Shep Rose has taken his side. Even petty Craig Conover jumped to Cam’s defense. And he loves to gossip! At any rate, it’s never been a secret that Cam keeps her personal life personal. Like, we know Kathryn and production know not to go there. And yet…
