Southern Charm Season 7 started out with a lot of Cameran Eubanks-centered drama. However, Cameran quit the show by then. The one time Cam actually had a storyline that didn’t involve her casting judgment on someone else’s life, she just peaced out. She even had her close friend Leva Bonaparte who would have been in her corner if she decided to confront Kathryn Dennis.
Kathryn spread rumors that Cam’s husband Jason Wimberly was cheating on her. Instead of just denying this on the show (if it is indeed false) and putting Kathryn in her place, Cameran just stopped filming. Is that the ultimate sign of maturity? Or is it just simply an example of “when there’s smoke, there’s fire”? I guess we will never really know. Was it messy for Kathryn to spread this gossip? Hell, yes (especially if it is false). However, as the flashbacks showed, Cameran was not kind to Kathryn for many years. Does that justify what Kathryn did? No, but it’s certainly a messy situation.
Southern Charm really feels like it is missing Cameran Eubanks. She was the classy, mature one in the group who had her life organized since the series premiere. Cameran was a good friend to her cast mates, and side-stepped any conflict by simply choosing not to engage.
Despite her friendship with the cast, there was one person that Cameran always kept at arms length. Rightly so perhaps. Drama and rumors swirled around Kathryn Dennis since her involvement with Thomas Ravenel to the current season. Kathryn was also behind the rumor that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair. This vicious gossip is the reason that Cameron left the show. Now, Cameran’s friend and cast successor Leva Bonaparte is sharing her opinion regarding her departure.
The Southern Charm series sure has it’s share of love triangles and failed relationships. Currently we have Thomas Ravenel, his newest baby’s mother, and Kathryn Dennis. Then there’s Austen Kroll, Madison LeCroy, and John Pringle. Honestly, none of these combinations of relationships are going to work out. But that’s not why we watch, is it?
This show has also kept viewers on their toes for the birth of three Southern Charm babies in 7 seasons. Thomas and Kathryn had their two. Shortly after they entered into an intense custody battle, and there was yet another love triangle. This time it involved the infamous Ashley Jacobs. There was also Cameran Eubanks who previously claimed she would never be ready for parenthood. Instead, she has taken motherhood by the ovaries. It’s almost impossible to say what will happen next, but that didn’t stop the current cast from placing their bets anyways!
The ladies and gentleman of Southern Charm are about to be hit with a dose of reality like never before. COVID-19 is making its debut in this episode, and things will never be the same again. Everything is going to be different moving forward. It’ll be interesting to see how they navigate filming in the midst of the pandemic. This was one of the network’s first shows to be impacted by the virus.
The drama is heating up within the group though. The arrival of John Pringle might end up being the worst thing to ever happen to Austen Kroll. His interest in Austen’s girlfriend Madison LeCroy is SUSPECT. This man JUST came into the group, and this is the chaos he is already causing. There are so many other women in Charleston that he could pursue. Why set your sights on someone you know is in a relationship?
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.
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.
Ba-ba-doo. Southern Charm is back and looking very different this year. Since ending last season, none of us are the same. There’s been COVID-19 outbreaks, the BLM movement, and an entire election. If you’ve been somehow stayed off of social media and the reality news through all this, let me catch you up. So far, Kathryn Dennis cried that she was called racist for using an obviously racist monkey emoji towards a black woman. Fucking YIKES. Also, her ex-, Thomas Ravenel, was literally FORCED (not compelled) to apologize for sexually assaulting their nanny.
This show is trash and packed with scum. Literally episodes had to be taken down due to the amount of racist and cringe they depicted. This season, however, we welcome Iranian mother, Leva Bonaparte who has seemingly buddied up Craig Conover in the first few episodes. By the way, am I the only one finding this season completely scripted and weird?
