Last week’s announcement of a mass exodus of Southern Charm stars is dredging up a lot. Naomie Olindo, Chelsea Meissner, and Cameran Eubanks all announced that they would not be returning next season. Since then, alums Landon Clements, Ashley Jacobs, and Thomas Ravenel have all made statements denouncing the show. And one name has been coming up a lot in the midst of it all. Kathryn Dennis. The show underdog has come a long way since her first season. She became a social outcast during her time with Thomas; slighted from Patricia Altschul’s fabulous dinner parties. Those kind of invites make or break you in Charleston. This is old news though. Why is Kathryn’s name coming up so much now? And does Kathryn have anything to do with the exiting cast falling out of love with their amazing reality TV gig?
It was Kathryn that was allegedly spreading rumors that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly had a mistress. According to the supposed mistress that is. And Naomie and Chelsea. Landon called Kathryn a, “bad apple that can ruin the whole bunch.” While Kathryn has become the Charm darling of late, it does call to question the power of post-production editing when so many cast members put out contradicting statements. Ashley said the cast enabled Kathryn, while Thomas called out the editing process. Was that a dig at Kathryn? Or does Thomas still want to be vindicated for the way he was “portrayed”?
There is a lot of Southern Charm drama this week. Kathryn Dennis got called out for referring to an African American woman with a monkey emoji. Cameran Eubanks announced that she left the show. Rumors swirled that Cameran’s husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair. The accused mistress denied the rumors and maintained that she had never met Cameran and Jason. Cameran even publicly supported her by liking and sharing her post. This woman also claimed that Kathryn started the rumor, a story that Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner corroborated in their Instagram Stories. Oh, and Naomie and Chelsea are gone from the show too.
Thomas Ravenel chimed in to denounce the show. He claimed that they asked him to return, which is doubtful considering the sexual assault of it all. Kathryn’s longtime nemesis Landon Clements shared her two cents. And now, Thomas’ ex Ashley Jacobs is bashing Kathryn and the whole Southern Charm cast.
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.
Landon Clements may be no longer be a cast member on Southern Charm, but she still has plenty to say about her co-stars. At a recent event in L.A., she talked about her former co-star, Thomas Ravenel, and his arrest last month. She also dished on which of her former cast members she keeps in touch with.
Us Weekly was on the blue carpet talking to the celebrities at the UNICEF Masquerade Ball, so they naturally were curious to get Landon’s take on Thomas Ravenel’s very serious situation. She told them, “I know in my heart that Thomas is a good person and whatever happened, happened. I wasn’t there that night. But I can’t imagine that he would ever hurt anyone.”
Summer is a great time to travel. Just ask your favorite reality stars, who have already taken several summer vacations. And of course they all documented their trips.
Kourtney Kardashian shared a photo from her trip to Italy. Southern Charm stars Shep Rose, Austen Kroll, and Craig Conover left Charleston, South Carolina for a boys trip to the Hamptons. New York Housewife Dorinda Medley enjoyed some time in Massachusetts. Ladies of London alum Caroline Stanbury shared a photo from her time in Los Angeles. Potomac Housewife Ashley Darby explored the Himalayan Mountains on vacation.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars enjoyed their Monday off for Memorial Day. Many of them shared photos hanging out with family and friends and sweet sentiments honoring the troops in their captions.
Teen Mom star Chelsea Houska and former Orange County Housewife Meghan Edmonds showed off their baby bumps. Teen Moms Jade Cline and Kayla Sessler shared photos playing with their babies outside.
Spoiler alert! Shepard “Shep” Rose wasn’t quite all-in on his quest to find love on his spin-off Relationshep (although I’d love to see him with producer Sarah!). Who knew? Technically, I don’t know for certain if his budding romance with the New York chick (I’ve already forgotten her name) crashed and burned, but he did mention a post-filming hookup with a former Summer House yoga one-off on a recent WWHL, so there’s that. However, we will get to see all this (and more!) unfold very soon because SOUTHERN CHARM IS RETURNING FOR ITS FIFTH SEASON VERY SOON! AS IN APRIL 5TH!!! <—This is me maintaining my cool.
Yes, the whole gang will be returning, with a calmer Kathryn Dennis, new mom/Peter Pan whisperer Cameran Eubanks, and a smitten Thomas Ravenel. Sadly, Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo are no longer a couple and are trying the old “exes as friends” thing perfected by Austen Kroll and Chelsea Meissner (now a “full time” cast member). Of course, they weren’t ever really a pair to begin with, but let’s give those crazy kids a story line! Regardless, I cannot wait for this new season. There will be hilarious antics, South of Broad drama, adorable babies, caftans, and, best of all, crafting Craig! Added bonus? No more Landon Clements!
This is news to me, apparently Chelsea Meissner was not a “cast member” on Southern Charm last season even though she appeared in most of the episodes, including trips, and the reunion. In related news, Chelsea is now a cast member on Southern Charm next season.
It makes sense to “add” another person to the cast since Landon Clements left the show, but Chelsea doesn’t bring that villain drama the same way Landon did. It will be interesting to see how next season goes without a villain to root against.
