After last week’s
snoozefest episode, it was about time Southern Charm offered up some serious drama that didn’t involve Craig Conover getting his feelings hurt. Last night was the highly anticipated return of Ashley Jacobs, who proved, yet again, that she can’t take responsibility for any of her actions. It is exhausting to watch her battle over semantics, but it’s torturously entertaining. Let’s dig right in to last night’s show, shall we?
While the OG Charmers are bonding with their pooches, Recent College Grad is complaining about how hard it is to be overshadowed by the Limehouse name. With three hotels and a $50 million inheritance in her future, Eliza works hard to learn the family business booking reservations and covering shifts at hotels. She is not just a spoiled polo brat like most people assume. Eliza discusses the skeet shoot brunch she and her boyfriend Don will be hosting at her family’s plantation. Her mother nags her about emo manicure and sleep habits…and the fact that Eliza is dating someone fourteen years her senior. She wonders if her daughter is seeking a father-figure in her older beaus. Her mother would rather Eliza marry into another well-bred Southern family instead of traipsing around with some thirty-something from (gasp!) New Jersey.
The romantic history of Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis reads a bit like a bad romance novel. One that you might not believe if you picked it up at the bookstore. Viewers are all too familiar with Kathryn’s dramatic relationship with her ex Thomas Ravenel, who is old enough to be her father. And her brief dalliances with co-stars Shep Rose and Whitney Sudler-Smith along the way. Plus, an unconfirmed fling with Craig Conover.
This season, Kathryn revealed that she was dating someone new, Joe Abruzzo, a Florida politician. But that relationship flamed out as quickly as it began. Then, earlier this year, Kathryn announced via Instagram that she was dating country singer Hunter Price. And so far, that relationship has endured. Kathryn has not shared a lot of information about their romantic life, but she recently discussed how the two met and also spilled some details on their relationship.
Last night’s Southern Charm was mega-Craig. It had all the drama, but the subjects shifted a bit. Boys will be boys! We begin as Shep Rose is preparing for the arrival of his new puppy, and Cameran Eubanks arrives at his house to accompany him to pick up his latest distraction…not to be confused with his most recent distraction–the girl who left thigh-high boots sprawled on his den floor. Cameran is concerned about how long Little Craig will last in his new home…probably as long as thigh-high boots girl did.
In Mount Pleasant, Chelsea Meissner and Austen Kroll are attempting to catch some fish while dishing on Shep calling Madison LeCroy white trash. Austen’s ex wishes that he had clocked Shep for the statement, and Chelsea agrees. Women like for guys to defend their honor. On their way to get Little Craig, Cameran details her recent conversation with Madison to Shep. He admits to saying it, but at least he didn’t say it to her face. Sometimes he’s snobby, okay? Shep doesn’t hate Madison, but he doesn’t like hanging out with rednecks. Cameran thinks his words were too strong, but she wouldn’t be friends with him if he didn’t have a good heart.
Do you think Craig Conover is still recovering from the hot dog assault on last week’s episode of Southern Charm? You would think he’d have learned by now how thick his skin needs to be if he’s going to be friends with Shep Rose and Whitney Sudler-Smith! While the boys continue their ill-fated road trip to get Austen Kroll’s mind off of Madison LeCroy, the ladies have their own agenda. Chelsea Meissner joins Danni Baird at the doctor for some egg freezing fun, and Patricia Altschul hosts the gals for a dinner party where the forgiveness is served with a side of Kathryn Dennis eye rolls. And those are just the highlights…what a time to be a Charmer!
The show begins with the boys readying for the drive to Nashville, but the awkwardness between Shep, Whitney, and Craig is palpable. Austen is silently peeved at Shep’s attempt to sweep the previous night’s nastiness under the rug. He believes it’s a pattern with Shep. Later that evening, the guys arrive at their Nashville hotel, and Shep is already planning the evening’s after party. As Craig preens, Whitney sanitizes the room in a way that would make Lisa Rinna proud. Shep has shaved his beard to a goatee. It’s not a good look. Austen receives a hot pic from Madison, and his friends are quick to remind him that this is the exact reason they aren’t together. She’s manipulating him.
Is it just me, or is Southern Charm not as charming as it once was? The premise was great when these folks were in their twenties, but mid-thirties frat boys just aren’t as entertaining. Don’t get me wrong, I still adore the show, but I’m nostalgic for the good old days of bar hopping and bed-hopping when it was funny…not semi-pathetic. Maybe I’m just in a mood…
The drama of last week’s episode seems all but forgotten (if only that were true!) as the Charmers prepare for their day. Craig Conover’s ADD interferes with cleaning up after his party, and Kathryn Dennis is getting a spray tan that will no doubt look completely natural. Speaking of natural, nothing looks more normal than Patricia Altschul’s butler Michael pulling her Bentley through the Mac Donald’s drive-thru. She’s craving a cheeseburger with no
ketchup tomato. She reveals that her guiltiest pleasures are Mickey D’s, Costco hot dogs, and Taco Bell tacos. In fact, Patricia prefers her fast food to the finest French cuisine. She nibbles on her number one in the backseat with a cloth napkin (not paper!) and glass of Cabernet while Michael toodles her around Charleston. What a life!
After many seasons of loyalty, Southern Charm cast members Kathryn Dennis and Danni Baird are experiencing some tension. They got into it during a girls trip and then again at Craig Conover’s sewing party. They still haven’t made up and now Danni is confiding in Eliza Limehouse, of all people.
On tonight’s Southern Charm episode, Danni reveals that she sent Kathryn a text that said “You just spit on our friendship. I hope it felt good.” She. Is. Not. Playing.
It seems like Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis has a type when it comes to dating. She prefers her men older, in politics, and have a questionable past. Before her relationship with Joe Abruzzo, she dated the notorious southern gentleman Thomas Ravenel, who she has two children with.
While Season 6 was filming, she was dating the former politician. During a recent episode, we learned about his colorful past, thanks to town gossiper Craig Conover. Divorce and accusations of abuse from his ex-wife are a couple of things that Craig shared. However, Kathryn seemed happy with him. The couple that spray tans together stay together, right? Cut to the present, thanks to Instagram we found out the tall beautiful red-hair raven is on to a new relationship. Kathryn is currently dating country singer Hunter Price.
