It’s completely surreal to be watching the early stages of the pandemic play out on Southern Charm. As we move into that, we’re going to dive into the Black Lives Matter movement as well. I kind of love this. It’s a real and raw season, and we’re showcasing the state of America. So much went down in the beginning of the lockdown, so it’s great to be able to view it in this lens.
Flashing two months later following the beginning of the pandemic is a fascinating time jump. Things are opening back up, but life is nowhere near normal. Between the social justice movements and the virus, there’s so much happening in Charleston. We’re going to get a view of where all of the guys and girls stand on these issues. Who is taking it seriously? Who is standing up for change? That’s what we’re FINALLY going to learn.
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?
The new season of Southern Charm has been eventful so far with the introduction of Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. Neither are shy about giving their opinions, and they’re the shakeup the show needed. Pringle’s infatuation with Madison LeCroy is absolutely going to lead to a feud with Austen Kroll. It’s so messy and so dramatic, but that’s why we love this show. MORE PLEASE!
Kathryn Dennis has been toying with the possibility of making things work with Thomas Ravenel. However, she has to know that’s a horrible idea? Right? What could she be thinking? Going down that road again with Thomas surely is not going to end well for either of them. Something needs to go down that ends them forever. As horrible as that sounds, it’s the only way she will learn her lesson. Here’s hoping!
Southern Charm is back, and it might be one of the best season’s yet. New cast members Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle are already bringing a fresher vibe that the show really needed. They’re on the path to make up for the slew of cast members we lost prior to the season. One thing that hasn’t changed however is how shady Shep Rose can be. It’s definitely looking like he purposely set up Madison LeCroy at his party.
Another source of tension in the group right now is Kathryn Dennis starting a rumor about Cameran Eubanks and her husband Jason Whimberly. Whether the cheating allegations are true or not remain to be seen, but she definitely did this with malicious intent. It’s wild that this was enough to send Cameran packing from the show. That kind of exit makes you wonder if the rumors were in fact true. We’re in for a crazy season.
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.
From reports of multiple cast members leaving the show to accusations of racism and false infidelity rumors, there’s been so much drama happening with Southern Charm this week that it’s enough to make your head spin. And now, former cast member Landon Clements couldn’t resist chiming in with her two cents regarding the show’s recent headline-making scandals.
The one-time Charmer took to social media on Thursday (May 14) to look back at her time on Southern Charm and point the finger squarely at nemesis Kathryn Dennis for all the drama that’s currently brewing in Charleston.
As you might know, Southern Charm is FINALLY filming again after a long delay. And we all know what that means! Time to play another round of, “Are They Banging?”, courtesy of Kathryn Dennis and her baby daddy, Thomas Ravenel.
On this week’s episode of ATB?, we once again reflect on a curious Instagram photo posted by Miss Kathryn. Back on January 12, Kathryn shared a glam shot from a party. Also pictured, T-Rav,in very close proximity to Kathryn’s body. It certainly raised eyebrows that the two were more on again than off again. After brief speculation the couple had reunited like Ashford & Simpson, the streets are talking once more. Is this just clever subterfuge and trickery to get people talking or have the venomous twosome decided to give love another shot?
Let’s face it. Season 6 of Southern Charm was not the greatest. There seemed to be a spark missing from the series. It is almost as if some of the charm of the show disappeared. Thomas Ravenel departed after Season 5 in a cloud of ugly legal issues. Kathryn Dennis was more private, possibly due to her legal wrangling with Thomas over custody of their children. Shep Rose appeared to have turned into that angry old man who lives on the corner.
Rumors about whether or not the show would return started cropping up in the fall, as Southern Charm has traditionally filmed during that time of year. Austen Kroll confirmed last November that the show had not yet started filming. In the same month, Craig Conover hinted Southern Charm would be returning, but offered little in the way of details. Now, there is some dish to share about the future of our charmers.
