It’s completely surreal to be watching the early stages of the pandemic play out on Southern Charm. As we move into that, we’re going to dive into the Black Lives Matter movement as well. I kind of love this. It’s a real and raw season, and we’re showcasing the state of America. So much went down in the beginning of the lockdown, so it’s great to be able to view it in this lens.
Flashing two months later following the beginning of the pandemic is a fascinating time jump. Things are opening back up, but life is nowhere near normal. Between the social justice movements and the virus, there’s so much happening in Charleston. We’re going to get a view of where all of the guys and girls stand on these issues. Who is taking it seriously? Who is standing up for change? That’s what we’re FINALLY going to learn.
Austen Kroll, after years of puppy-dogging behind Shep Rose and Craig Conover, may finally be coming into his own. He’s one by one starting to call out his cast-mates for being shitty. It’s sort of impressive. He’s even come for Patricia Altshul’s caftans. Look out now!
While some seem to think Austen’s whining is limitless and played out, others are finding it refreshing. He’s certainly shooting his shot on this season of Southern Charm. On camera, and off.
The ladies and gentleman of Southern Charm are about to be hit with a dose of reality like never before. COVID-19 is making its debut in this episode, and things will never be the same again. Everything is going to be different moving forward. It’ll be interesting to see how they navigate filming in the midst of the pandemic. This was one of the network’s first shows to be impacted by the virus.
The drama is heating up within the group though. The arrival of John Pringle might end up being the worst thing to ever happen to Austen Kroll. His interest in Austen’s girlfriend Madison LeCroy is SUSPECT. This man JUST came into the group, and this is the chaos he is already causing. There are so many other women in Charleston that he could pursue. Why set your sights on someone you know is in a relationship?
Patricia Altschul always functioned as the matriarch of Southern Charm. She offered dating advice to cast members and played matchmaker with her themed dinner parties. Landon Clements and Thomas Ravenel never worked out and both cast members quit the show, but it looks like Patricia has a new protege in Madison LeCroy.
Patricia is not the only cast member that has an opinion about Madison and Austen Kroll’s relationship. But no one throws shade quite like Patricia, sipping a drink in her parlor with the man she really wants to see Madison dating. On last week’s episode, John Pringle made it known that he was interested in Madison, and while Patricia couldn’t be more pleased, Austen was left incredulous.
The new season of Southern Charm has been eventful so far with the introduction of Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. Neither are shy about giving their opinions, and they’re the shakeup the show needed. Pringle’s infatuation with Madison LeCroy is absolutely going to lead to a feud with Austen Kroll. It’s so messy and so dramatic, but that’s why we love this show. MORE PLEASE!
Kathryn Dennis has been toying with the possibility of making things work with Thomas Ravenel. However, she has to know that’s a horrible idea? Right? What could she be thinking? Going down that road again with Thomas surely is not going to end well for either of them. Something needs to go down that ends them forever. As horrible as that sounds, it’s the only way she will learn her lesson. Here’s hoping!
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.
It certainly seems like Southern Charm star, Austen Kroll is this season’s Chatty Cathy. Austen has had a lot to say about his co-stars in the media as of late. He’s feeling some type of way about Patricia Altschul’s canine-themed caftan line. He’s relieved to no longer carry the burden of Kathryn Dennis throwing herself off the wagon. And his messy storyline with Madison LeCroy kicked off a new batch of relationship issues for him to
whine about contend with.
Speaking of relationship issues, Kathryn has a new man in her life. Her followers got their first look at Chleb Ravenell in July after a pic was posted to Instagram.’Ol Chlebster has been hanging in there and we will surely be hearing more about him. Austen had a chance to work with Chleb and shares his opinion on whether or not the couple are going to set the standard for being
stunt queens a model romance.
During last week’s episode of Southern Charm, Patricia Altschul encouraged new cast member John Pringle to pursue Madison LeCroy… even though Madison was dating Austen Kroll.
Patricia doesn’t think that Austen is good enough for Madison and she dissed his beer company, saying that Madison deserves “Budweiser” instead, I.e. Madison deserves someone with more money and stability. Well, Austen didn’t take too kindly to that and he shaded Patricia’s business pursuits in response.
