Many Southern Charm fans miss Cameran Eubanks narrating the show. Some people are hating on her for quitting as soon as Kathryn Dennis brought up rumors about her husband Jason Wimberly cheating.
Even so, for the most part, Cam has been relatively unscathed throughout her reality TV career, which started on MTV’s The Real World. On Southern Charm, she spent most of her time commenting on other people’s lives, keeping hers pretty private. But, perhaps, she was waiting to open up until she could share her story on her own terms.
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.
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.
I hate to say you told me so, but you told me so. Yep, it sounds like Southern Charm is in ICU and the prognosis isn’t looking too great. It might be time to call friends and family members and get out your favorite black outfit. By all accounts, the show is in trouble. I’ll say it, the current cast is circling the drain because Thomas Ravenel departed. We don’t have a lot of people bringing interest to the table these days. No one seemed fascinated by Austen Kroll’s journey in trying to be a boy toy and Shep Rose has less personality and dignity than Naomie Olindo’s cat.
If the truth hurts, this will too. The ladies of the cast are leaving fans high and dry. Cameran Eubanks was the voice of reason when the show began, now she is the voice of judgment and often glosses over her friends’ shitty behavior. Chelsea Meissner is lovely but dang, she lacks a life. Since her “love interest” is some dude on a boat at sea, there are no relationship storylines for her. Kathryn Dennis is drama personified but not legally able to speak about certain things. Quite frankly her moods were so strange last season, fans constantly wondered if she was either on something or just checked out. Now we are hearing production has delayed filming through January, and you know what that usually means. Are we watching one of Bravo’s old favorites taking it’s last few breaths?
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.
While we wait for an official announcement about Southern Charm’s return, viewers are still recovering from
Shep Rose the multitude of drama the stars gave us in Season 6. Not only were we tortured by the reappearance of Ashley Jacobs, fans were also introduced to recent college graduate, Eliza Limehouse. We can blame Eliza for bringing Ashley back, but it’s safe to say Thomas Ravenel’s ex wasn’t the one who brought class and sophistication to the show.
We can save that honor for Madison LeCroy. As Patricia Altschul’s hair stylist, Madison could also call herself Austen Kroll’s girlfriend. Because unemployed men with zero ambition and friends like Shep are a hot commodity in Charleston! Austen tested Madison’s boundaries when he was busted having a threesome. Madison tested Austen’s nerves when she wouldn’t take any of Shep’s misogynist garbage. By the time the cast reunited for the reunion, Austen and Madison were sadly no more. Well, now that
filming is about to start the holidays are approaching, we might have been given an early gift. Love is in the air! Sorry single gals and guys, it looks like Austen might be off the market again.
