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…
Cameran Eubanks shocked fans when she told us that she wasn’t coming back for the latest season of Southern Charm. And sure, the show has survived without her. But let’s face it, it’s not the same without her. Cam was not only an OG, but she was the narrator and voice of reason for all her messy castmates. Now there really is no voice of reason, just a big ole southern friend mess.
But what fans really want to know is why Cam made such a hasty exit from the show. It happened right around the time that castmate and one-time adversary, Kathryn Dennis had a racially charged scandal. But more importantly around that time, cheating rumors about Cam’s husband, Jason Wimberly, began to surface. And who was accused of being behind them? None other than Kathryn herself. Maybe Kathryn jumped on the chance to take some of the heat off herself?
Cameran Eubanks has long been a Bravo TV darling. She jumped onto the Southern Charm scene as the narrator and breakout star of the show. Fans loved her for her wit, honesty and take not BS attitude.
So fans were shocked when Cameran made a hasty exit from the show, deciding not to come back for another season. It was in the wake of castmate Kathryn Dennis’ racist emoji scandal. So some speculated that’s why Cameran, along with Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner, decided they had enough. There were also cheating scandal rumors around Cam’s husband, Jason Wimberly. Which seem like the more likely cause of her sudden departure.
Southern Charm has been a doozy. The reunions have basically been insane remakes of the issues throughout the season. The cast-members rehashed Kathryn Dennis’ racism with a new gusto. Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy seemed to have a new hateful passion as well. This season has changed the direction of a show that used to have a totally different vibe.
One major difference has been the exit of former cast-mate, Cameran Eubanks. And while Cameran hasn’t been on screen, her close friend Leva Bonaparte has. Leva has been open about her wishes for Cam to address some issues on camera. Leva also shared during Part 1 of the reunion that she and Cameran are not as close as they were before she joined the show.
We don’t have much longer until the newest season of Real Housewives of New Jersey is upon us! It feels like forever and a day since we last had our Garden State ladies on screen. It’s been a roller-coaster keeping up with the women off camera. There have been Coronavirus donation cases, accusations, and hospitalizations.
Throughout it all, Margaret Josephs has kept her connection with fans going through her Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget podcast. She’s used this outlet to share her COVID-times plastic surgery, family dynamics, and boss bitch moves. And like the boss she is, she’s taking it up a notch.
After a jaw dropping season finale, the Southern Charm cast are ready to do battle again at the reunion. In an end of season cliffhanger, Kathryn Dennis was shown taking a pregnancy test. What a shocker! Nobody has a clue this was a possibility prior to the airing of this. Hopefully we get some clarity regarding this during part one of the reunion. Also, what will Kathryn have to say to Leva Bonaparte after a season of being on the receiving end of her crusade?
In addition to all of that, Charleston’s most dysfunctional couple looks to be fighting once again. The never-ending saga of Austen Kroll & Madison LeCroy rubbed many in the group the wrong way. All season, every group event turns to chaos because of these two and their toxic relationship. From the looks of things, Craig Conover in particular has had enough. He’s ready to drag Madison from here to the ends of the Earth.
