Breaking: Southern Charm continues the “boys among men” vibe. Recently Craig Conover has had to defend his pillows against the elderly likes of Patricia Altshul. I’m actually giggling. If Naomie Olindo could see him now!! Then there’s Shep Rose who’s writing a book inspired by his first serious relationship ever. At age 40. Lol, okay.
That brings us to John Pringle and Austen Kroll. Two grown men who are still discovering concepts like bed-times and bro-codes. All while fighting over Madison LeCroy’s heart. Did I forget to mention Austen has previously hooked up with Craig’s girlfriend before they got together? How’s that territorial thing working out, dude?
The last time Craig Conover dated on camera, he was clearly mismatched with Southern Charm alum Naomie Olindo. They were polar opposites. She was driven and focused, while Craig struggled to find motivation. He cycled through different endeavors, but never committed to anything. Naomie lost patience and often belittled him on camera. They split up, and she eventually left the show.
Craig seemed pretty affected by the breakup, and did not pursue any relationships. At least not publicly. Craig did find success in his professional life after founding the company Sewing Down South. Maybe that success boosted his confidence to start dating again, and wouldn’t that be nice to see, especially since one of Craig’s costars has high expectations for his new lady.
This season of Southern Charm seems to have a very new vibe. There’s a new cast, but there’s also a new energy. Maybe it’s because three of our main ladies have exited stage left. In their place, we’ve added Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. John has almost immediately started trying to swoop in on cast-mate Austen Kroll’s girlfriend, Madison LeCroy.
Unsurprisingly, Austen is starting to get pissy with John and seemingly the other guys. He’s also been majorly dishing his true thoughts on his other cast members recently.
Southern Charm has had a fair amount of recasting this season. The show lost Naomie Olindo, Chelsea Meissner, and Cameran Eubanks. They added new cast members, Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. While Leva is carrying on Cameran’s tradition of beefing with Kathryn Dennis, John is just being another grown-ass man-child chasing unavailable women. Don’t we already have enough of those on the show?
Shep Rose really is the only one we need to get our healthy dose of deadbeat with this franchise. He’s finally old enough, at 40, to use the world girlfriend for goodness sake. He’s really going for the good guy edit this year. Maybe he’s finally taking feedback from his previous years seriously.
Many Southern Charm fans miss Cameran Eubanks narrating the show. Some people are hating on her for quitting as soon as Kathryn Dennis brought up rumors about her husband Jason Wimberly cheating.
Even so, for the most part, Cam has been relatively unscathed throughout her reality TV career, which started on MTV’s The Real World. On Southern Charm, she spent most of her time commenting on other people’s lives, keeping hers pretty private. But, perhaps, she was waiting to open up until she could share her story on her own terms.
After what seems like the longest hiatus ever, Southern Charm is FINALLY back. Kathryn Dennis, Craig Conover, Shep Rose, Madison LeCroy, and Austen Kroll are all returning. However, Cameran Eubanks, Naomie Olindo, and Chelsea Meissner will NOT be featured this season. It’s sad to see them go, but it’s an exciting new direction for the series. Leva Bonaparte & John Pringle are joining as series regulars!
It’s going to be so interesting to see the extent that the pandemic impacts the season. From the looks of things, it affects everyone on the cast in some capacity. This is going to be good! The way all of these shows have been forced to change things because of the virus has been fascinating. Seeing why Cameran exited the show right as it began filming the new season. Something nasty went down, and we need to get to the bottom of it!
Southern Charm Season 7 presents a major cast shakeup. OG cast member Cameran Eubanks is gone. Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner exited as well. Now, Madison LeCroy is an actual cast member along with two other newbies, John Pringle and Leva Bonaparte.
Austen Kroll, Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, and Craig Conover are still on the show to bring the drama… and dish on the former cast members in interviews.
After a long delay, Southern Charm is finally gearing up for a new season. Thanks to the Rona and some cast members jumping ship, production was postponed and some even questioned if the show would return at all. We’ll see some new faces in the group, but other things apparently never change. So far, it seems Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll’s “relationship” will be heavily featured.
Hopefully viewers will be spared from watching Austen take part in any unsafe sexual engagements. That wouldn’t be proper social distancing during these trying times! While the crew tackles white privilege, surviving a pandemic in cargo shorts, and Kathryn Dennis, Craig Conover says relationship issues are still a thing. Now Craig details what’s in store for viewers, as the saga of Madison and Austen continues.
