Even though Thomas Ravenel is no longer a cast member on Southern Charm, he is still a major topic of conversation. This makes sense since he is embroiled in many legal issues right now. From his custody issues with Kathryn Dennis to the sexual assault allegations against him, Thomas is involved in a lot of drama these days.
However, the two exes managed to come together, with smiles on their faces at that, for the sake of their daughter Kensie.
New Southern Charm cast member Eliza Limehouse did not make the best first impression during the Season 6 premiere episode. For some reason, she thought it was a good idea to remind everyone that she’s so close with Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs, who aren’t even on the show anymore.
And then she had some word vomit toward Kathryn Dennis, who eloquently told Eliza that her coattails are worn out at the end of the episode. We barely saw any Eliza during Episode 2, minus the pedicure scene with Cameran Eubanks. However, a lot of the viewers didn’t seem to mind. She doesn’t have a ton of fans at this point, but Cameran and Naomie Olindo have come to her defense.
We are a few weeks into Season 6 of Southern Charm and it has been great catching up with the gang. Other than this year’s departure of Thomas Ravenel amid a swirl of legal woes, everyone is back for more drinks, dish, and drama. And quirky Eliza Limehouse has been, shall we say, an interesting addition to the show! The season has started out low key, which is fine with me. Probably the most interesting revelation so far has been that Craig Conover has cleaned up his messy house. Which is kind of a miracle!
Matriarch Patricia Altschul was center stage of the first episode, throwing one of her formal dinner parties for people who aren’t always on their best formal behavior. It is difficult to imagine the show without Patricia as she adds class–and spot on commentary–to the series. Patricia, however, recently revealed that she was never meant to be such an integral part of Southern Charm.
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.
