Even with all of the Kathryn Dennis vs. Ashley Jacobs drama this season on Southern Charm, one of the most shocking moments of the season was when Kathryn revealed that she and Shep Rose have hooked up several times since her daughter was born. Somehow this never made it onto the show, but I cannot help wondering about it.
When Austen Kroll joined Southern Charm last season, he gave Shep Rose a run for his money as the ladies man in the cast. Even so, he was more of an anti-Shep back then. He had a nine to five job. He preferred pursuing a serious relationship with Chelsea Meissner over random hookups.
Now, the women in the Southern Charm cast feel like Austen has transformed into Shep Jr and they have no problem calling him out.
The cast of Southern Charm has truly stepped up its game this season- at least for the most part. As per usual, everyone is bleeding out for the show and opening up about their personal lives except for narrator Cameran Eubanks, who just comments on everyone else’s drama while keeping her own life under wraps. Nevertheless, the show is really on point this season.
One major reason for this reason’s entertainment value is the anger of post-breakup Naomie Olindo. She is calling out the good ole boys of Charleston whenever she can. She has a major ax to grind with ex-boyfriend Craig Conover and (kind of, sort of cast member) JD Madison. She is giving us the most talked-about moments- by far.
Spoiler alert! Shepard “Shep” Rose wasn’t quite all-in on his quest to find love on his spin-off Relationshep (although I’d love to see him with producer Sarah!). Who knew? Technically, I don’t know for certain if his budding romance with the New York chick (I’ve already forgotten her name) crashed and burned, but he did mention a post-filming hookup with a former Summer House yoga one-off on a recent WWHL, so there’s that. However, we will get to see all this (and more!) unfold very soon because SOUTHERN CHARM IS RETURNING FOR ITS FIFTH SEASON VERY SOON! AS IN APRIL 5TH!!! <—This is me maintaining my cool.
Yes, the whole gang will be returning, with a calmer Kathryn Dennis, new mom/Peter Pan whisperer Cameran Eubanks, and a smitten Thomas Ravenel. Sadly, Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo are no longer a couple and are trying the old “exes as friends” thing perfected by Austen Kroll and Chelsea Meissner (now a “full time” cast member). Of course, they weren’t ever really a pair to begin with, but let’s give those crazy kids a story line! Regardless, I cannot wait for this new season. There will be hilarious antics, South of Broad drama, adorable babies, caftans, and, best of all, crafting Craig! Added bonus? No more Landon Clements!
At best, it can be said that Scheana Marie lacks self-awareness. Scheana’s frienemy Stassi Schroeder described her as narcissistic during the last Vanderpump Rules episode. Then there’s Scheana herself who adamantly denies her betrayal and dismisses her comments as jokes that just didn’t land.
The last Vanderpump Rules episode centered around everyone’s (alleged) adultery. Jax Taylor admitted to cheating on his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and this has been the main story line all season. Tom Schwartz put himself on a break from taking shots after he blacked out and made out with a woman who isn’t his wife. And just for good measure, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute claimed that Scheana’s new man Robert Valletta kissed someone else.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared some intriguing snapshots in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup. Some of the stars were still on vacation following the winter holidays. Others got back to their “normal” lives which could be considered a luxurious vacation for most of us normal folk- which of course made for some jealousy-inducing Instagram posts.
Before we know it, we will be blessed with a brand new season of Southern Charm. Obviously the seasons are filmed months before they air, so the fans are already aware of some major plot points. Cameran Eubanks is now a mother. Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo ended their relationship. Shep Rose may (or may not) have a girlfriend thanks to his spin-off show Relationshep. Thomas Ravenel is dating a woman named Ashley Jacobs who hasn’t appeared on the show yet. Kathryn Dennis is working at a Charleston department store. Landon Clements is not a part of the cast.
All of those aspects are very much public, so I can’t help wondering what else is going on. Are there any other story lines that have been kept under wraps? Or did too much information leak thanks to interviews and social media? It might actually be the latter since production (allegedly) wants the cast members to chill out when it comes to their social media posts.
After dating around Charleston on Southern Charm, Shep Rose landed his own dating show aptly titled Relationshep. Considering that Shep revealed a recent hookup with a fellow Bravolebrity while he was a guest on Watch What Happens Live, it’s pretty doubtful that he’s with someone from the show – unless, she is just very laid back.
I guess we will have to wait and see how that all plays out, but it turns out that someone from the show will be moving to Charleston, even though it’s unclear if she’s “dating” Shep. Shep also shared some updates on his Southern Charm costars Kathryn Dennis, Thomas Ravenel, Naomie Olindo, and Craig Conover.
