Southern Charm is finally returning. The show took some time off from filming because, people quit. Cameran Eubanks left due to rumors of infidelity surrounding her marriage. Apparently being “friends” with Kathryn Dennis has it’s drawbacks. Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner followed suit, as they prefer to keep their drama down to what protein to have with dinner.
Cameran’s BFF Leva Bonaparte has joined the cast to fill some of the void. Leva has been around forever, in the background. Judging from the Season 7 trailer, discussions regarding race relations and white privilege will impact the crew. Though viewers might be weary of the content, I assure you this was not a subject one could avoid whilst living in a Southern town. Now that Leva has been introduced to the public, people are commenting on her race and ethnicity. Saying she is the “token” addition to this ensemble, with her “ambiguous” skin color. Now guys and gals, Leva needs a second of your time.
It seemed touch and go there for a minute, but Southern Charm is returning. The show faced some hardships prior to it’s comeback. Kathryn Dennis decided to imply Cameran Eubanks’ husband was playing doctor with a side-piece, so Cam quit the program. Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner also jumped ship, rather than face another 13 episodes of Kathryn’s high drama. Eliza Limehouse also opted to not come back, but if I hadn’t mentioned it, would you have noticed?
While Thomas Ravenel has been gone for eons, his spirit lingers on. He doesn’t show up, but he is certainly talked about. Madison LeCroy has a new set of extensions and she isn’t afraid to use them. Mads is now a full cast member and appears to be well-versed in the formula of reality television. We also meet newbies John Pringle and Cameran’s buddy Leva Bonaparte. Under the haze of a summer filled with a pandemic, battles over race relations, and questions about sobriety, it looks like we might actually have a season.
I’m not gonna lie, I forgot that Eliza Limehouse was a cast member on Southern Charm last season. She came on strong at the very beginning with her ratty extensions and her drunken digs at Kathryn Dennis. Then, she pretty much just disappeared.
I, mean she was there, at the cast member parties and on cast trips, but she got pretty much no screen time (other than being in the background) and she basically had no storyline.
As we patiently wait for Southern Charm to return to our screens I guess we can at least be thankful that this crew just keeps bringing the drama off-camera as well. Thomas Ravenel has a fresh ex-girlfriend he made a whole new baby with. Please don’t forget his history of arrests and sexual harassment claims! Meanwhile, his ex-ex-ex-(?) Kathryn Dennis has a new man. Word on the street is Kathryn is also being sued by her former image consultant. You know, after she was under-fire for her use of the monkey emoji when DMing with a black radio host.
Wow, for a show built on old money and family names this sure is a day-time court TV show waiting to happen. Let’s not forget that Craig Conover and Austen Kroll have been seen out several times maskless. Who wouldn’t want to stick around and hang out with these guys? Maybe like, Naomie Olindo and her hot new doctor boyfriend?
Things just keep getting worse for Kathryn Dennis. Less than a month after getting blasted in a racially-charged social media scandal, the Southern Charm star is back in the headlines because of a financial lawsuit.
This time, Kathryn is being sued by a professional image consultant. She hired her to revamp her look but allegedly never paid for her services.
Southern Charm viewers know Cameran Eubanks as the “normal” cast member since she has had zero drama on the show. Well, now she’s known as a former cast member. Last week the news broke that Cameran will not be returning to the show for another season. She has served as the voice of reason. She narrated every episode. However, her life was never at the center of the action.
Cam was one of the few reality TV stars who managed to have a private life, until last week anyway. After she announced her departure from the show, rumors swirled that her husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair with a Charleston-based makeup artist. This woman denied it, with support from Cameran and she accused Kathryn Dennis of starting and spreading the rumor.
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.
