Eliza Limehouse knows how to make an impression. Nothing says “I’m awesome” like showing up at Patricia Altschul’s house with
questionable hair extensions Shep Rose and name dropping Thomas Ravenel. That’s what viewers were treated to in her first official appearance as a Southern Charm regular.
For some reason, Eliza felt the way to everyone’s heart was to inform folks how close she is to
the old pervert Thomas and his maybe crazy girlfriend, Ashley Jacobs. During an awkward dinner, she gave fans and Kathryn Dennis ample opportunity to exercise their eye-rolling skills by repeatedly bringing up Thomas’ name. Despite his rep for being an ALLEGED rapist absence from the show and her clumsy attempts to converse with Kathryn, Eliza wants us to know, she’s cool, y’all.
Last night’s Southern Charm was swirling with the confirmation of the “did they or didn’t they” hook-up rumors surrounding Kathryn Dennis and Whitney Sudler-Smith. Shep Rose’s love life was once again thwarted by ill-thought Instagram posts, and we got to peek inside Craig Conover’s fledgling pillow company. It doesn’t get much better than that!
The episode begins with Kathryn unable to summon Austen Kroll on any of her smart devices. Across town, Cameran Eubanks is getting some much needed relaxation at the nail salon before being interrupted by Recent College Grad who comes in like a bull in a china shop. She’s got a cooler of kombucha and she can’t stop talking about her last name and her royal status in Charleston society. However, her politician father’s affair caused a serious blacklist for her family. She wasn’t even able to be a debutante! Cameran’s husband has known this girl’s family for decades (he gave her swimming lessons when she was four), and Cam likens her to a little sister. She gives RCG some sisterly advice–she needs tone it down and mind her manners. Cameran reminds RCG that her behavior at Patricia Altschul’s dinner party was over-the-top and obnoxious.
Season 6 of Southern Charm got off to a dramatic start with last week’s premiere episode. It all went down at Patricia Altschul’s dinner party. It was the first time that Kathryn Dennis was a welcomed guest in her home. She was both nervous and excited about the invite. Unfortunately, the new girl ended up giving Kathryn a lot of shit. This is a pattern on Southern Charm at this point.
Eliza Limehouse walked in as
an oddly a very proud friend of Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs. Who in her right mind would ever brag about that? Claiming those two is not a good way to make friends, girl. However, she wasn’t the only one to stir up the drama. Austen Kroll told Chelsea Meissner that Kathryn and Whitney Sudler-Smith hooked up over the summer. Whitney awkwardly deflected, but, by no means, is the storyline over. It is still a hot topic of conversation during tonight’s episode.
During the first five seasons of Southern Charm, Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul were mostly at odds. Patricia judged Kathryn for her often out of control behavior-and Kathryn judged Patricia for judging her. About the only thing the two seemed to have in common was Patricia’s son Whitney Sudler-Smith, whom Kathryn apparently slept with during Season 1 of the show. Which isn’t exactly a bonding experience!
Patricia also supported Kathryn’s ex Thomas Ravenel time and again over her during their dysfunctional relationship and breakups. But as they say, nothing unites people like a common enemy, in this case, one Ashley Jacobs, sometime girlfriend of Thomas. And probably one of the most-despised reality villains of all time. Last year, Patricia’s friendship with Thomas “un-raveneled” and she even called Ashley a fame whore and a gold digger. Patricia’s falling out with Thomas helped her see Kathryn in a different light. Now the two are unlikely allies.
Wasn’t it great to have Southern Charm back last week? It is one of my favorite shows and the seasons never seem to last long enough. It will certainly be a different show without Thomas Ravenel, but it looks like we will be hearing a lot about him throughout the season. For better or worse-probably worse! My favorite part of the premiere show was definitely the dinner party at Patricia Altschul’s house, which was as wonderfully strange as any of her gatherings.
Austen Kroll was one of Patricia’s dinner invitees and for the most part was a low-key party guest. Low-key would not be the words to describe an embarrassing video that surfaced last summer of Austen and his new girlfriend Madison LeCroy, however. In the video clip, Madison appeared to catch Austen in a threesome while stopping by his house early in the morning. Understandably, an argument ensued in the video, which was apparently taped by one of Austen’s “houseguests.” And now Austen is telling his side of the story.
Hallelujah, Southern Charm fans! The gang is finally back and the first show of Season 6 did not disappoint.
During a dinner party at Patricia Altschul’s modest abode, gossip was flying about a recent summer hook up between Kathryn Dennis and Whitney Sudler-Smith. So did Kathryn see Whitney’s delicate things? Do we really want to know?
He’s got money, he’s in magazines….the tabloids! Last night, Southern Charm made it’s much anticipated return with one missing piece, one Mr. Thomas Ravenel, who is sitting out this round due to several alleged sexual assault accusations. We do get our OG Charmers–Cameran Eubanks, Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, and Craig Conover. To say I cannot wait for this season to unfold would be an understatement!
The format remains the same…we follow the Charmers through their morning routines. The only difference is this group of noon sleepers are all actually early-rising adults. One by one, they recap their thoughts on the allegations against T-Rav and his subsequent arrest. Kathryn talks to Danni Baird and Craig. Shep admits to Austen Kroll that he’s yet to check in on the mother of two. Chelsea Meissner and Naomie Olindo (added to the credits this season, congrats!) joke about whether what’s her name will stay with Thomas if he goes to jail. Cameran is wisely pleading the fifth. She doesn’t want to risk a lawsuit from the Litigious Lothario.
Southern Charm is back for Season 6 tonight. Thomas Ravenel is not on the show. This also means that his on-again-off-again girlfriend Ashley Jacobs will not be making regular appearances. Although she does pop up at some point.
Nevertheless, the cast does have Thomas on their minds and his name in their mouths. Even though he’s no longer a cast member, Thomas is still a conversation topic. So much for suing Bravo to prevent that.
