Another season of Southern Charm wrapped up last week at Patricia Altschul’s stag party. Shep Rose created drama by bringing the two mystery women from Austen Kroll’s threesome video as dates for himself and Craig Conover. A move obviously meant to embarrass Madison Lecroy and Austen, the tawdry video’s stars.
What we found out at the party is that despite the video being a predominant Season 6 storyline, nothing actually happened between Austen and the women. The ladies were basically using his apartment as a free hostel for the night. Just the fact that Shep brought the two women to the event set tongues-a-wagging, however. So, what do Shep’s cast mates really think of his shady maneuver? And did the cameras capture everything at the party?
We all know that reality TV stars get (and probably send) more racy DM’s than the rest of us. Southern Charm viewers saw Craig Conover and Shep Rose flip out when Madison LeCroy DM’ed Danni Baird’s then-boyfriend, but at least she didn’t send any photos… that we know of.
However, it’s actually a different Southern Charm lady that gets the most direct messages. And, no, it’s not Cameran Eubanks, Kathryn Dennis, Naomie Olindo, or Chelsea Meissner. It’s actually Pat Altschul who’s getting the most notifications out of the Southern Charm ladies.
There’s nothing to “dislike” about Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks, but also don’t know much about her. She does not share much with the cameras. Meanwhile, Austen Kroll has been going through it with on-again-off-again girlfriend Madison LeCroy. Craig Conover after his breakup with Naomie Olindo on his quest to make pillows.
Basically, there are some people on this show who share their realities and then there are others who share teeny, tiny edited slivers of their lives. We’ve all known this for a while, but now Craig is actually calling Cameran out for skating by.
Eliza Limehouse has just completed her first year as a full-time cast member of Southern Charm. Somehow, she has mostly managed to avoid drama with her co-stars, other than a bizarre run-in with Kathryn Dennis early in the season. Eliza’s main purpose has seemed to be to issue event invites to fame wh*re Ashley Jacobs to annoy the rest of the cast. A thankless job, to be sure.
Although Eliza has not been the lightening rod that newcomer Madison Lecroy has been, she is not without opinions. That includes her thoughts about the recent social media debacle of pal Shep Rose, who posted an ill-advised video of a woman collecting cans on the street. Shep made crude comments making fun of the woman. Plus, she was filmed, despite asking not to be on camera.
Well, last night we finally got to see the two minutes of cocktail chaos that Southern Charm has been teasing us with all season! While the party crash was anti-climatic, the real drama was the demise of a bromance and the rise to fame of those elusive ladies from the cell phone footage…let’s dig in, shall we?
Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul are shopping at Gwynn’s and exploring fifty shades of Gucci. As they try on shoes for Pat’s upcoming cocktail party, the pair gossip about Shep Rose’s horrible attitude towards Austen Kroll’s relationship with Madison LeCroy. Patricia reveals what we’ve all known–Shep despises Madison because she once rebuffed his advances. Color me shocked by that news!
Shep Rose has had quite a season on Southern Charm. His witty personality and the size of his
ego wallet made him one of the more watchable characters in the past. Eternally single, his lack of relationship and hilarious antics became a recurring theme of the show. As his popularity quickly increased, Bravo spawned a spin-off program for the favored bachelor, chronicling his search to find love. Spoiler alert, he didn’t find love.
We have seen another side of Shep this year. A side not quite so charming, a tad less humorous than in the past. Austen Kroll’s girlfriend, Madison LeCroy has been the new target of Shep’s thinly-veiled insults. Shep has been unable to hide
being butthurt his disparaging thoughts on his friend’s relationship. Shep even referred to Madison as “white trash,” a taunt not lost on his castmates. He also implied Austen needs to control his woman, as Madison is not one to slink away from Shep’s petty intimidation attempts. While Madison’s mouth has gotten her into a caldron of hot water, Shep is not to be outdone. Recently, the 39-year-old man pulled a stunt. Another action he thought was terribly amusing. In the wake of posting an extremely insulting video of a homeless woman, Shep is hiding trying to manage the fallout of his ignorance.
Can you believe that the season finale of Southern Charm is next week? With the absence of Thomas Ravenel, the show has not been as dramatic as in the past. However, one cast member’s ugly accusation turned the show upside down a few weeks ago. Austen Kroll’s sometime girlfriend Madison Lecroy accused Shep Rose of giving Danni Baird chlamydia.
The season-long animosity between Shep and Madison escalated at the end of the cast Colorado trip in a dangerous game of one-upmanship between the two. Poor Danni was the collateral damage in their dispute. To me, the accusation is one of the all-time most uncomfortable reality television moments. Apparently, some of the Southern Charm cast feels the same way.
