Man, if this happens, it will be another ratings extravaganza for Bravo. They do love bringing back
criminals former cast members to shake things up. Like many of our faves, Southern Charm’s Cameran Eubanks showed up at BravoCon. This was actually good as fans of the show have speculated it might not return. Even cast members have seemed bewildered at the lack of filming. Word on the street is production will begin on Season 7 in January.
So the Charleston crew is probably breathing a sigh of relief that they aren’t dead yet. Last year viewers endured a trip down STD mountain and had their eyes repeatedly assaulted by the tragic sight of Austen Kroll in his underwear. Shep Rose seemingly grabbed the asswipe title and has hopefully adjusted his attitude as a result. Speaking of assault and asswipes, what’s happening with good ‘ole
boy Thomas Ravenel? T-Rav recently settled a custody dispute with Kathryn Dennis and all is well on Fantasy Island. Now that Thomas’ sexual assault case has also been resolved, will he dip his dainty toes back in the reality television pond? According to Cameran, it’s possible. Yikes.
Southern Charm is all about the boys club and their antics, but there is one woman who has been around since day one: Cameran Eubanks.
She has been a confidante during rough times and she’s not afraid to dish out some tough love when necessary. Her good friend Craig Conover has truly got his act together, sewing pillows and opening restaurants. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Shep Rose. He just keeps inserting his foot into his mouth over and over again. Last season was rough for Shep. The off-season was even worse when he posted that video mocking a homeless woman collecting cans. He made things worse when he defended himself, but eventually apologized. But, was it too little too late? Can Shep redeem himself at this point? Cameran dished on that possibility in an exclusive interview with Reality Tea during BravoCon.
Southern Charm’s Craig Conover was a man with a dream. An unusual dream, to be sure. He wanted to make pillows. Craig found something he loved to do and hoped to start a business based on his passion–which is many people’s fantasy, isn’t it? However, Craig wasn’t quite sure how to turn his love of sewing into a business reality, as viewers witnessed over several seasons.
Unfortunately, Craig had many pillow naysayers along the way. Former girlfriend Naomie Olindo was doubtful of his ambition and follow through. Shep Rose made fun of Craig’s lack of direction. Matriarch Patricia Altschul had to put a planned pillow collaboration with Craig on hold because of his inability to complete the work. Co-star Cameran Eubanks has also been hard on Craig over the years. Now, Cameran is making amends for some of the doubt she has expressed about Craig and his pillow dreams.
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?
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.
Naomie Olindo joined Southern Charm as Craig Conover’s girlfriend and a part-time cast member. Now, she’s in a new relationship and she’s a full-time cast member. It’s funny how things change sometimes.
However, it wasn’t actually Craig who initially approached Naomie about joining the cast. It was actually Southern Charm creator (and occasional Kathryn Dennis hookup) Whitney Sudler-Smith. And she claims that he wanted her on board from the very beginning. So, why did it take so long for her to join the cast?
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.
