Southern Charm Recap: Tally No!

After Madison LeCroy spewed the accusation heard ’round Bravo world, Shep Rose gave Austen Kroll an ultimatum, and Cameran Eubanks realized she’d never get her groove back, the crew could relax on the manufactured drama and rely on the unhinged villain fans love to hate. That’s right…last night’s Southern Charm brought back Ashley Jacobs who just can’t help herself when it comes to confronting Kathryn Dennis.

Chelsea Meissner is meeting her absolutely adorable father some good food and great atmosphere. They discuss Chelsea’s boyfriend and her decision not to go into business with Madison. After Madison’s Rocky Mountain outburst, Chelsea is worried how Madison would react if they ever had a professional disagreement. Very good point, Chelsea.

Southern Charm Kathryn Dennis

Love him or loathe him, Austen Kroll has been carrying this season of Southern Charm. What is everyone else doing? Eliza Limehouse is a complete non-factor. Why is she a full-time cast member when Danni Baird has been a “friend of the cast” this whole time? Naomie Olindo brings nothing to the table. Cameran Eubanks has never had an actual storyline.

And in contrast, we have Austen, whose tumultuous relationship with Madison LeCroy, has provided a constantly-changing storyline. The season started with him cheating on her with not one, but two women at the same time. Shep Rose and Craig Conover got overly involved in their relationship and exposed Madison for sliding in Danni’s man’s direct messages. Now, it looks like the couple is getting back together. For now, anyway.

Austen Kroll “Disappointed” By Southern Charm Cast Members Who Don’t Show Struggles On Camera;

When Austen Kroll joined Southern Charm, he was deemed the “New Shep Rose” and touted as the golden boy of the show, which are, clearly, two very contradicting descriptions. Nevertheless, Austen shed that golden boy persona last season when ex-girlfriend Chelsea Meissner claimed that she was his short-lived sugar mama, picking up the tab on dates.

This season has revolved around Austen’s relationship drama with Shep Madison LeCroy. It started with that infamous video where Madison caught Austen with two women, while they were dating. Now, this season seems to revolve around their ups and downs. No one can say that Austen isn’t bringing it this year. However, the same cannot be said about some of his co-stars. There are plenty of people on this show who aren’t pulling their weight, just getting by commenting on other people’s storylines. Now, Austen is calling them out. Or at least he plans to at the reunion.

Southern Charm Danni Baird

Is Madison LeCroy set to be the next Naomie Olindo on Southern Charm i.e. will she earn a full-time spot on Southern Charm thanks to a dysfunctional romance with a cast member, Austen Kroll in this case? She just might. She really stirred things up during the last episode.

Madison claimed that Shep Rose gave Danni Baird chlamydia. She claimed that it was a fact… just because Austen relayed the information. How reliable! Now, Danni is speaking out about Madison’s claims.

Southern Charm Recap: Loose Lips Sink Sheps

It’s safe to say that the Charmers Colorado trip has been filled with highs and highs and highs and lows, and last night’s episode of Southern Charm was just as hot and cold…and not just in the natural springs! After a night with the wicked weed, the group munches on a hearty breakfast before heading to the hot springs. Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy conveniently found their way into the same bed, and Shep Rose can’t handle their early morning PDA. You know what I can’t handle, flashbacks of a grown man unable to function because he can’t handle his marijuana mashed potatoes!

Cameran Eubanks and an even more awkward than normal Whitney Sudler-Smith are taking the next plane back to Charleston. After her trip with the ganja gang, Cameran misses daughter Palmer more than ever, and Whitney…? Well, Whitney must feel embarrassed after what when down at dinner with Kathryn Dennis, right?

Ashley Jacobs crying

Ashley Jacobs might be nuttier than a squirrel’s nest, but we need her. Southern Charm was in danger of getting stale. There’s only so many times Shep Rose can be drunk. Who wants to watch Craig Conover not sew his pillows? Or listen to Austen Kroll pontificate about beer and his lack of personality employment. While an ensemble cast is great, occasionally someone needs to come in and ruffle some feathers.

Heeere’s Ashley! She used to date Thomas Ravenel and she’s still stirring things up. While Thomas gaslit his new victim love and manipulated encounters with Kathryn Dennis, Ashley eventually turned down a dark road. She hurled disparaging remarks at Kathryn in a liberal fashion. But should Kathryn thank Ashley? She managed to turn one of reality television’s most hated, into Mother of the Freaking Year. Ashley had a role and she committed to it full throttle. Now she’s dealing with the aftermath of her actions, and what it means to be a villain.

Southern Charm Recap:

If last week’s episode Southern Charm was the introduction of Mary Jane into the cast (with cameras involved, obviously), last night’s show was a sky-high debacle. It’s the first day on the mountain for the Charmers, minus Shep Rose who is still nursing a drunken knee injury and Whitney Sudler-Smith who is still crying over a ski accident from childhood. Chelsea Meissner is channeling Putin’s mistress, Austen Kroll is pretending he’s not trying to hook up with ex Madison LeCroy, and the majority of the girls are headed to ski and snowboarding lessons.

Over a pre-slope breakfast, Austen denies any smooching with Madison, but he’s not going to lie and say he doesn’t want to rekindle that flame. Cameran Eubanks recognizes that this trip will not be rejuvenating her mojo as she FaceTimes with baby Palmer. The group is quick to motivate, waiting on Kathryn Dennis to don her Tellatubbie/Charlie’s Angels (original, not the reboot) ski look. It’s a lot, but it is magnificent.

Southern Charm Recap: Rocky Horror Mountain Show

It took a week for us to recover from Ashley Jacobs’ appearance on Southern Charm, and this week’s episode gave us more Craig Conover tantrums. He needs a new shtick. At least we were treated to a change of scenery as the group jetted off to Colorado.

The show begins with Cameran Eubanks joining Shep Rose at the site of his new lot on James Island. It’s 3.5 acres for a mere $900K, and Cameran is is convinced it’s a money pit. He doesn’t have any site plans, and he’s unsure about the flood zone designation which is a very key item in Charleston. The pair discusses their upcoming trip to Colorado, and Shep is peeved to hear that Cam has included Austen Kroll’s ex Madison LeCroy in the group.
