Southern Charm Recap:

So last night’s episode of Southern Charm began right where last week’s ended…with Kathryn Dennis embroiled in a confrontational conversation with friends Danni Baird, Naomie Olindo, Cameran Eubanks, and Chelsea Meissner at a tree house dinner party in which the only alcohol available to numb the awkwardness is a one not often willingly consumed by folks who didn’t buy it with a fake ID. Good times! Cameran is choking it down though because it’s that kind of tension.

Danni requests a one-on-one with Kathryn by the bonfire. The rest of the group goes a-rootin’ tootin’ back to their respective tree houses, grateful for the reprieve.  Danni is a really stellar friend, by the way. She delicately shares that the way Kathryn responds to things that she doesn’t want to hear hurts her feelings. She is unable to have a normal disagreement commonly shared among good friends, and instead, she shuts down completely. Just like she’s doing now when she doesn’t like what Danni has to say. No one knows the extent of Kathryn’s struggles, and no one can have an opinion on how she handles them. She feels embarrassed and betrayed by Danni.

Um, I get that Kathryn has trust issues larger than the loan on her Rolls-Royce, but she wouldn’t recognize someone legitimately caring about her if it smacked her in the face. Her issue with Danni seems less about trust and more about entitlement.

Southern Charm Naomie Olindo

Southern Charm is all about hooking up and hanging out. The cast seems to do little else aside from going to restaurants serving up cholesterol-laden food, drink, and gossip. And when the cast is not drinking or gossiping, they are looking for love. Often in all the wrong places. Like in a threesome video ala Austen Kroll. Or with men old enough to be their fathers, like Kathryn Dennis. Or at bar time with the sorority girl of the moment–yes, that would be you, Shep Rose!

Southern Charm star Naomie Olindo, who was finally added as a full-time cast member this season, has also been a Charmer looking for love. She first joined the show as the girlfriend of Craig Conover. As Craig and Naomie were clearly ill-suited for one another, it was no surprise that their relationship imploded after a few years. Since splitting with Craig, Naomie has moved on to a serious relationship with Dr. Metul Shah. Naomie recently shared her thoughts about Metul, their future–and how Craig is reacting to her being in a new relationship.

Southern Charm Recap:

Last night we were treated to the first half of a tw0-part Southern Charm which answered A LOT of questions I never wanted nor needed to know. At all.

The charmers are getting ready for their day, and Patricia Altschul is concerned that her hairstylist is somewhat distracted. It seems Madison LeCroy has given Ms. Pat an unfortunate Kathryn Dennis-esque type poof. Whatever could be her issue? Only Austen Kroll knows for sure! Chelsea Meissner is the only one working, and some dude drops off a surfboard for Shep Rose prior to the aging frat boy’s haircut appointment.

Craig Conover’s penchant for laziness and lounging hungover in hoodies must be contagious because Austen has been afflicted. Over burritos and beer, Austen laments about the downfall of his relationship with Madison. He’s embarrassed to admit to his friends that he still in love with a girl who tried to slide into his friend’s boyfriend’s DMs. She seems so sweet and innocent given the fact that she’s only had three boyfriends in her lifetime. Craig teases that she probably had so few relationships because the rest of the guys never responded to her on Instagram. Craig has jokes!

Naomie Olindo Defends Cameran Eubanks Calling Her Boyfriend “Exotic”

Okay can we all agree Cameran Eubanks might be going through a little something? The rookie parent could very well have a case of Mom Brain. And if you don’t already know, it’s a real affliction. Symptoms include forgetfulness, sleep deprivation, and saying weird things. Case in point, on a recent episode of Southern Charm, we saw Cam low key flirting with Craig Conover (I would). She also seemed to be considering smoking the jazz cabbage in an effort to deal with the trials and tribulations of motherhood.  

Life has been hectic for Cameran since her baby was born. She has encountered obstacles returning to her real estate career, as well as juggling her return to social gatherings. Her awkward flirting didn’t stop with Craig. Enter Naomie Olindo’s boyfriend. Metul Shah is the new meat man on campus and Cam can’t take it. The resident physician in anesthesiology took Cameran’s breath away, and maybe her ability to think before she speaks.

Southern Charm Austen Kroll Shep Rose

After last week’s episode of Southern Charm confirmed the dastardly deed between Kathryn Dennis and Whitney Sudler-Smith, last night’s show focused on the perils of a new couple, Austen Kroll and his Instagalpal Madison LeCroy. I’m not counting out these two…if they can survive a threesome and retaliatory cheating, what’s a little DM action going to hurt?

Naomie Olindo is hard at work at her online apparel business, but she makes some time to Facetime with her adorable parents who are traipsing through Europe. In addition to her new endeavor, she is also helping her family run their Greek restaurant Nico. Speaking of precious parents, Chelsea Meissner’s dad drops off Tyson after dog-sitting him for Chelsea’s house-warming party. They discuss Chelsea’s sailor beau Nick who has a three-year contract in Rhode Island with the America’s Cup. She seems to have a type…and it’s someone who lives far, far away. She likes her space! Her dad wonders how the relationship will work for so long with such distance, but he adores Nick. He’s a man, and Austen’s more of a house cat.

Ramona Singer Defends Social Climbing; Craig Conover Weighs In On Naomie Olindo’s New Relationship

Wednesday night is a big one for Bravo viewers. We get to watch Southern Charm followed by Real Housewives of New York. This means that we (usually) get to watch RHONY and Southern Charmers on Watch What Happens Live that same night.

During last night’s WWHL episode, Ramona Singer and Craig Conover stopped by the Bravo clubhouse. What did Ramona have to say about the social climbing allegations against her? What does Craig think of ex-girlfriend Naomie Olindo’s relationship with Metul Shah?

Southern Charm Recap:

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.

Southern Charm Recap:

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.
