Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.

Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.

And this week, we are in for a treat: all Season 1 episodes, which are the best seasons from most of these shows.

Southern Charm Shep Rose

After such an epic saga of drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis, it’s easy to forget that she also got with Shep Rose during the first season of Southern Charm. One person who didn’t forget was Shep himself who remembers that era pretty fondly and has no issue discussing it. Not that Shep really has an issue discussing anything. The man is an open book. He was really made for reality TV.

Shep discussed his upcoming love triangle with new cast members Austen Kroll and Chelsea Meissner– which I cannot wait for since Austen is the only formidable opponent that Shep has faced when it comes to wooing the ladies. He attempted to explain the odd dynamic between him and Craig Conover. And he even reminded us all that there was a person named Jenna in Season 1 of the show.

Yolanda Foster vault

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Above: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster shared this “vault,” adding, “The vault was not a threat but rather a reminder that I know a lot of things about all the cast members that I would never dare to expose! The vault in my culture means: a safe and vulnerable place in our hearts where we share a certain integrity and keep our friends well being as our first priority. I don’t feel the need to share private matters of other women or their families because I care for them as human beings. Exposing private matters to the public would just make me feel like a distrustful human being. We don’t need to put others down in order to build ourselves up. I am not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we’re all successful…. in whatever our personal journey might be…. #RHOBH #TheVault #EnoughIsEnough #DrawingALineInTheSand.”

Y’all. This girl can’t even. CAN’T EVEN! To say I’m over-the-moon about this would be the biggest understatement in the history of my love affair with reality television. To be completely honest, I think I’d be obsessed with Southern Charm even if it didn’t take place in my personal playground. Granted, by personal playground, I mean the place where the cable company mails my bills (semantics)…the only revelry I have in Charleston these days revolves around 50+ hour work weeks, wine, bagel bites and the occasional delicious beer at, well, Revelry. However, that’s about to change because Thomas Ravenel and crew are returning to Bravo on Monday, March 16th! {Squeals with delight!}

I don’t like to brag, but a few weeks ago I chatted with Shep Rose at Rue de Jean about the upcoming season. Okay, okay…so in his version of the story, I approached him like a Southern Charm fanatic (not to be confused with a groupie looking for a hook-up, although I’m not sure which is worse), asked questions he politely skirted, and forced him to pose for a picture, but still! I can confirm that they are all, in fact, good friends outside of the show, and he was a great sport about the entire debacle. Having learned my lesson, when I spotted Cameran Eubanks the other day at the grocery store, I gave her some space…even when she pulled her buggy behind me in line. See, I can exercise restraint! She was probably grateful for it, given that I’ve fan-girled her in the past–but that was for the job, dear readers. 🙂 That said, the recently released super-trailer for the upcoming season is epic!

Full disclosure: I set out to loathe Southern Charm. I anticipated watching like one would a train wreck. In the beginning, I did, but then something strange happened. It was as if the Who's Who of Whooville Charleston various towns throughout my great state were able to change this Grinch. At first I couldn't stand the thought of Thomas Ravenel, having once watched him make out at the table next to me in some oyster bar years ago. Then, strangely, I began to feel sorry for him, as he clearly just wanted to find love and a proper Senator's wife. Finally, he grew on me, much like a wart or some other weird skin abnormality, but grew on me nonetheless. I honestly think he's going to be an amazing dad.

That said, I guess I'm going to have to start following politics, because T-Rav isn't planning on any more Bravo stints. Instead, he's hoping to revamp his political career with the hopes that people will remember his time on Southern Charm more than they do the time he served in prison. T-Rav certainly has a colorful past, doesn't he? He's like a modern day Ernest Hemingway without the works of literary genius.

southern charm reunion

I have to admit that I was oh-so-hoping that the Southern Charm reunion would actually be filmed in Charleston, and I had grand plans of stalking Andy Cohen. No such luck…the clubhouse it is!  As the reunion begins, Andy introduces the crew. Cameran Eubanks looks gorgeous, and Craig Conover is rocking some serious red pants. Shep Rose looks three sheets to the wind already, but hey, isn't that why we love him?  

Andy starts by asking Thomas Ravenel about new baby Kensington, and T-Rav says that she's brought so much joy to his life, he wishes he'd started a family sooner…like when he was Kathryn Dennis' age. His daughter would be out of college by now!

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!

Well last night was bittersweet!  Honestly, when I first requested to recap Southern Charm, I certainly didn't think I'd enjoy it–I just wanted to have an excuse to chronicle the inevitable train wreck. However, I'm sad to see it come to an end. Heck, I even started to kind of like Thomas Ravenel (and, no, I'm not drinking!)! Cameran Eubanks is utterly charming, Whitney Sudler-Smith's mother Patricia totally stole the show, and Shep Rose, well, um, he's got great fratty hair. Even Craig Conover grew on me a bit, and I'm not totally ashamed that we will soon be alums from the same law school. We all know that T-Rav has welcomed a baby girl with Kathryn Dennis and is residing in Florida (though still planning to run against Lindsay Graham according to The State), and Cameran married herself an anesthesiologist, so I am not counting my chickens that there will be a season two. I guess we'll have to bask in last night's finale to dull the pain.

The show begins where it left off last week, with Whitney's admission that he too hooked up with Kathryn around the same time frame as her "fling" with Shep and her pregnancy scare with Thomas. Prior to their con-bro-sation, the thirty second recap of the season courtesy of Cameran and Craig is pretty spot on and hilarious, I must say. Whitney tries to explain that he feels "dark and sleazy" for keeping this secret from his best friend, and he hopes that T-Rav will tread lightly in pursuing a relationship with her given his future political aspirations. Thomas looks gobsmacked. When did chicks start hooking up as often and as haphazardly as dudes?
