Patricia Altschul hosts a formal event, but it is anything but classy. Shep Rose brings the two women that Madison LeCroy caught in that threesome video with Austen. Talk about stirring the pot. That’s not all though.
Can you believe that the season finale of Southern Charm is next week? With the absence of Thomas Ravenel, the show has not been as dramatic as in the past. However, one cast member’s ugly accusation turned the show upside down a few weeks ago. Austen Kroll’s sometime girlfriend Madison Lecroy accused Shep Rose of giving Danni Baird chlamydia.
The season-long animosity between Shep and Madison escalated at the end of the cast Colorado trip in a dangerous game of one-upmanship between the two. Poor Danni was the collateral damage in their dispute. To me, the accusation is one of the all-time most uncomfortable reality television moments. Apparently, some of the Southern Charm cast feels the same way.
I will never forget Craig Conover yelling “What’s wrong with my sewing!?” at then-girlfriend Naomie Olindo. There is nothing wrong with Craig’s sewing. Nothing at all, contrary to what Southern Charm villain Ashley Jacobs has recently remarked.
The only real problem that we’ve seen is that Craig had hundreds of unfulfilled orders and a lack of plans to come through for those customers. However, we then saw one of Craig’s come in, give him some tough love, and, ultimately, connection to help speed up the manufacturing. Unlike a lot of the reality TV-started businesses, Craig has kept that momentum going. Now he has his own company called Sewing Down South and he wants to bring his pillows to you. No, literally, Craig is coming with the pillows to different cities around the country.
After Madison LeCroy spewed the accusation heard ’round Bravo world, Shep Rose gave Austen Kroll an ultimatum, and Cameran Eubanks realized she’d never get her groove back, the crew could relax on the manufactured drama and rely on the unhinged villain fans love to hate. That’s right…last night’s Southern Charm brought back Ashley Jacobs who just can’t help herself when it comes to confronting Kathryn Dennis.
Chelsea Meissner is meeting her absolutely adorable father some good food and great atmosphere. They discuss Chelsea’s boyfriend and her decision not to go into business with Madison. After Madison’s Rocky Mountain outburst, Chelsea is worried how Madison would react if they ever had a professional disagreement. Very good point, Chelsea.
Love him or loathe him, Austen Kroll has been carrying this season of Southern Charm. What is everyone else doing? Eliza Limehouse is a complete non-factor. Why is she a full-time cast member when Danni Baird has been a “friend of the cast” this whole time? Naomie Olindo brings nothing to the table. Cameran Eubanks has never had an actual storyline.
And in contrast, we have Austen, whose tumultuous relationship with Madison LeCroy, has provided a constantly-changing storyline. The season started with him cheating on her with not one, but two women at the same time. Shep Rose and Craig Conover got overly involved in their relationship and exposed Madison for sliding in Danni’s man’s direct messages. Now, it looks like the couple is getting back together. For now, anyway.
When Austen Kroll joined Southern Charm, he was deemed the “New Shep Rose” and touted as the golden boy of the show, which are, clearly, two very contradicting descriptions. Nevertheless, Austen shed that golden boy persona last season when ex-girlfriend Chelsea Meissner claimed that she was his short-lived sugar mama, picking up the tab on dates.
This season has revolved around Austen’s relationship drama with
Shep Madison LeCroy. It started with that infamous video where Madison caught Austen with two women, while they were dating. Now, this season seems to revolve around their ups and downs. No one can say that Austen isn’t bringing it this year. However, the same cannot be said about some of his co-stars. There are plenty of people on this show who aren’t pulling their weight, just getting by commenting on other people’s storylines. Now, Austen is calling them out. Or at least he plans to at the reunion.
I always wonder who pays for reality TV stars to make personalized videos. Shockingly, I never have, even with my reality TV obsession. However, one guy asked Ashley Jacobs to record a birthday video for his girlfriend and she was truly unhinged. Were the actual Southern Charm cast members unavailable?
Did they come with a much higher rate? Why Ashley? Well, she certainly delivered. Ashley did more than just wish a stranger “happy birthday.” She made fun of Craig Conover for sewing. She also mentioned Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul like she always does.
It’s safe to say that the Charmers Colorado trip has been filled with highs
and highs and highs and lows, and last night’s episode of Southern Charm was just as hot and cold…and not just in the natural springs! After a night with the wicked weed, the group munches on a hearty breakfast before heading to the hot springs. Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy conveniently found their way into the same bed, and Shep Rose can’t handle their early morning PDA. You know what I can’t handle, flashbacks of a grown man unable to function because he can’t handle his marijuana mashed potatoes!
Cameran Eubanks and an even more awkward than normal Whitney Sudler-Smith are taking the next plane back to Charleston. After her trip with the ganja gang, Cameran misses daughter Palmer more than ever, and Whitney…? Well, Whitney must feel embarrassed after what when down at dinner with Kathryn Dennis, right?
