This season, Southern Charm gave viewers lessons on how to handle situations poorly. The show was a hotbed of controversy with people who don’t know how to conduct themselves in polite society. Thank goodness Shep Rose wrote a book to provide guidelines we should all be following to achieve success. And if you believe that, Pat Altschul has a lovely
Ravenel bridge she would like to sell you. Fans went on a whirlwind journey dealing with a multitude of sensitive topics.
At least we were finally introduced to new faces. Successful business owner Leva Bonaparte. Potato chip guy John Pringle and his beard. And Madison LeCroy – hairstylist, Austen Kroll handler, and mom of one came on board full time. ‘Ol Mads has been in the media a lot lately, perhaps you have read about her entanglement with several men of an athletic nature. You might be under the impression Madison thinks very highly of herself, and that might actually be true – but it took some nips and tucks to get there.
Southern Charm has gone through quite the evolution in the span of the last few seasons. They’ve entered the modern era and left the good old boy vibes behind. Or at least they’re trying. They’ve also welcomed their first cast member of color, Leva Bonaparte to the cast.
Surprisingly, Leva and Kathryn Dennis ended up hitting it off despite their rocky start to the season. During her racist monkey emoji scandal, Kathryn leaned HEAVILY on Leva to talk her through things. She also got a new image consultant. Let’s see how that turned out!
Austen Kroll was extremely vocal on the recent Southern Charm reunion. Mainly, it was a battle of wits between himself and ex-girlfriend Madison LeCroy. Craig Conover was after Madison in a big way, after she supposedly went after his girlfriend Natalie. But Austen’s outbursts seemed to dominate the stage, and while his target was Madison, Austen had opinions about all the cast conflicts.
One feud of interest this season was between Kathryn Dennis and long-time friend Danni Baird. After expressing hurt for Kathryn’s silence during her “monkey emoji” situation, Danni found herself looking for an apology for the latter part of the season. Kathryn was not sympathetic to her friend’s feelings initially, but apparently the two made up after filming wrapped.
Southern Charm has been a doozy. The reunions have basically been insane remakes of the issues throughout the season. The cast-members rehashed Kathryn Dennis’ racism with a new gusto. Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy seemed to have a new hateful passion as well. This season has changed the direction of a show that used to have a totally different vibe.
One major difference has been the exit of former cast-mate, Cameran Eubanks. And while Cameran hasn’t been on screen, her close friend Leva Bonaparte has. Leva has been open about her wishes for Cam to address some issues on camera. Leva also shared during Part 1 of the reunion that she and Cameran are not as close as they were before she joined the show.
The Southern Charm reunion came in so hot on last week’s episode. Craig Conover was gunning for Madison LeCroy from the moment they stepped onto the stage. He came to the reunion with his sights set on wrecking her entire existence. The accusation that she slept with a former MLB player stunned the world. It’s been the hottest gossip since Craig dropped that bomb into everyone’s lap.
When the first part concluded, Kathryn Dennis was back to her old self and ready to spar with Leva Bonaparte. After a season that felt like a never ending crusade against her, Kathryn’s looking for a fight. She believes Leva has twisted her narrative and slandered her name, and she’s out for vengeance. Leva may have bitten off more than she can chew by messing with Kathryn. She’s been a wildcard since Day 1, and Leva’s about to find out why firsthand.
After a jaw dropping season finale, the Southern Charm cast are ready to do battle again at the reunion. In an end of season cliffhanger, Kathryn Dennis was shown taking a pregnancy test. What a shocker! Nobody has a clue this was a possibility prior to the airing of this. Hopefully we get some clarity regarding this during part one of the reunion. Also, what will Kathryn have to say to Leva Bonaparte after a season of being on the receiving end of her crusade?
In addition to all of that, Charleston’s most dysfunctional couple looks to be fighting once again. The never-ending saga of Austen Kroll & Madison LeCroy rubbed many in the group the wrong way. All season, every group event turns to chaos because of these two and their toxic relationship. From the looks of things, Craig Conover in particular has had enough. He’s ready to drag Madison from here to the ends of the Earth.
Southern Charm has had a few infamous pets grace our screens. Who could forget the darling relationship between Craig Conover and his beloved Gizmo? Viewers must also remember the little cutie patootie Elvis who spent time with Cameran Eubanks’ family, despite not being their official family pet.
For anyone who dropped interest in Cam’s story after her departure from the show, you may not know that Elvis was eventually gifted to the Eubanks family when his own family moved from Charleston. Elvis was an absolute icon on Cam’s Instagram. Followers went insane when he and baby Palmer dressed as Patricia Altschul and Michael The Butler for Halloween. He was also just a complete sweetie.
This season of Southern Charm is finally coming to an end, and there’s so much left to be discussed. Leva Bonaparte’s crusade to cancel Kathryn Dennis is in full swing, and it’s gaining steam. As of now, Kathryn’s already on the outs with both Danni Baird and Madison LeCroy. Plus after last week’s episode, Craig Conover might be ready to turn his back on her as well. It’s all coming to a head, and we will see how well Kathryn stands her ground.
Shep Rose & John Pringle may have had the best intention when planning this party, but it’s going downhill fast. Everyone has something to get off their chest, and all roads of course lead back to Madison & Austen Kroll. No matter what else happens, these two manage to make it out themselves. Madison’s attempts to draw the attention of Austen have been ignored thus far, but will that last? In this group, peace doesn’t stick around too long.
