While we wait for an official announcement about Southern Charm’s return, viewers are still recovering from
Shep Rose the multitude of drama the stars gave us in Season 6. Not only were we tortured by the reappearance of Ashley Jacobs, fans were also introduced to recent college graduate, Eliza Limehouse. We can blame Eliza for bringing Ashley back, but it’s safe to say Thomas Ravenel’s ex wasn’t the one who brought class and sophistication to the show.
We can save that honor for Madison LeCroy. As Patricia Altschul’s hair stylist, Madison could also call herself Austen Kroll’s girlfriend. Because unemployed men with zero ambition and friends like Shep are a hot commodity in Charleston! Austen tested Madison’s boundaries when he was busted having a threesome. Madison tested Austen’s nerves when she wouldn’t take any of Shep’s misogynist garbage. By the time the cast reunited for the reunion, Austen and Madison were sadly no more. Well, now that
filming is about to start the holidays are approaching, we might have been given an early gift. Love is in the air! Sorry single gals and guys, it looks like Austen might be off the market again.
Craig Conover had a mostly good season on Southern Charm this year, despite some hiccups along the way. He finally kicked it into gear to take steps to get his online pillow business started, which he later called Sewing Down South. Craig moved on from pining over his ex Naomie Olindo. He also revealed at the cast reunion that some of his erratic behavior during the season was due to his problem with Adderall, which he seems to have conquered.
It was exciting to see the positive changes in Craig after years of stagnation. Of course, we all want updates on what he has been up to since last season. Southern Charm fans know that the show usually films in the fall and it appears the cast is not currently filming. Shep Rose even stated on a recent podcast that he didn’t know if there was going to be another season. Say it ain’t so! But, what is the real truth about a possible season 7 of the show?
You live, you say and do ignorant things, you issue your “my bad” statement. You move on. This seems to be the mantra for Southern Charm’s Shep Rose.
Fans of the show have watched Shep act like an ass to pretty much the entire cast. Last season, during a dinner event hosted by Patricia Altschul, the ladies shared the fact he had made them all cry at some point. What a sweetie.
Well, well, what do we have here? Have we lost another Bravo show? This is the time of year Southern Charm is in production, yet word on the street is no one is filming. The Charleston show was knee-deep in the swamps last season. We had Austen Kroll thinking he was Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Then there was the STD scandal, courtesy of Austen’s then-girlfriend, Madison LeCroy. And of course, Kathryn Dennis did not disappoint in her continued struggle to navigate motherhood and sobriety.
So what gives? We haven’t heard any rumblings about the show being axed and there is seemingly no reason why cameras shouldn’t be rolling. Unless Bravo and Haymaker are too involved with active lawsuits brought on by former cast members. Is it possible we have seen the end of Craig Conover’s pillow making empire? Will viewers be left hanging on the threads of Shep Rose’s non-existent love life? In a new interview, Shep gives an update on the future of Southern Charm. If there is a future.
Isn’t it great to have Below Deck back? How beautiful is the exotic Thailand setting? I think this might be the most stunning place Below Deck has been yet. Back for more charter merriment on the high seas are Captain Lee Rosbach, prickly chief stew Kate Chastain and last year’s favorite deckhand, now promoted to bosun, Ashton Piennar.
The yacht drama has already started with a nauseatingly sick on the first charter chef Kevin Dobson. Handful deckhand Abbi Murphy and complaining third stew Courtney Skippon are sure to make for an eventful season. Such crew members make you wonder, what would Kate do if she could actually pick her own crew? Maybe from some other Bravo franchises?
Southern Charm’s Craig Conover has always been a little slow to follow up with his goals. Viewers watched for several seasons while Craig procrastinated about taking the bar exam. His girlfriend at the time, Naomie Olindo, frequently expressed frustration with his easy-going approach to life. Co-star Shep Rose made fun of Craig for his lack of direction. When Craig had an opportunity to partner with Patricia Altschul on a pillow project, he failed to follow through with deadlines and she was forced to put the project on hold.
This year, however, Craig seems to be more ambitious. He has started an online pillow business, Sewing Down South, even selling out in an hour at his first in-store appearance. Now, Craig is expending his horizons even further, with his announcement that he has ventured into the restaurant business.
Lawd, will this ever end? Probably not, but the shabby moral behavior of others is what we’re here for! Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis began their doomed love affair on Southern Charm. Viewers watched their relationship produce two children and multiple headaches. These headaches include a bevy of nightmarish scenarios. We have a never-ending custody battle. A couple of ALLEGED sexual assault claims. And nonstop reports on various attempts at incriminating both parties. Sounds like a party, right?
Thomas eventually left the show, because you can’t exactly sue Bravo and continue filming. Thomas and his deep pockets subpoenaed everyone from Patricia Altschul to Andy Cohen in the custody dispute. I wouldn’t be surprised if he also tried to resurrect Kathryn’s dead hamster from when she was 12 to testify. After exhausting claims from both sides, Kathryn was eventually awarded joint custody in August of this year. A final ruling regarding the terms has yet to be determined, but little miss Kathryn just found an interesting nugget for the judge to entertain.
Our summer with the folks of Southern Charm has come to a bittersweet end. Sweet because it’s over, and bitter because the story line centered around a withering bromance and toxic romance of an Austen Kroll triangle. The wayward beer enthusiast spent the season entangled in a twisted web, pulled between his snobby, elitist wing man and shrill, roid-raging girlfriend. It wasn’t the stuff of Bravo dreams…that’s for sure!
Andy Cohen welcomes Danni Baird to the sofa before Austen continues to lecture Kathryn Dennis about her admittedly odd Watch What Happens Live appearance. Naomie Olindo interjects to state that a friend of hers witnessed Kathryn drinking before her evening in the clubhouse. Cameran Eubanks had the same snitch friend texting her this intel as well. Kathryn maintains that she didn’t have a sip of alcohol before WWHL, and she’d admit it if she did.
In fact, Kathryn has already shared that she is back to drinking in moderation…whatever that means. Craig Conover reveals that often times the cast has lied about seeing Kathryn drink because they didn’t think she was allowed to drink. Shep Rose agrees that they have all defended Kathryn’s reputation more than she knows.
