It seemed touch and go there for a minute, but Southern Charm is returning. The show faced some hardships prior to it’s comeback. Kathryn Dennis decided to imply Cameran Eubanks’ husband was playing doctor with a side-piece, so Cam quit the program. Naomie Olindo and Chelsea Meissner also jumped ship, rather than face another 13 episodes of Kathryn’s high drama. Eliza Limehouse also opted to not come back, but if I hadn’t mentioned it, would you have noticed?
While Thomas Ravenel has been gone for eons, his spirit lingers on. He doesn’t show up, but he is certainly talked about. Madison LeCroy has a new set of extensions and she isn’t afraid to use them. Mads is now a full cast member and appears to be well-versed in the formula of reality television. We also meet newbies John Pringle and Cameran’s buddy Leva Bonaparte. Under the haze of a summer filled with a pandemic, battles over race relations, and questions about sobriety, it looks like we might actually have a season.
We all know that Southern Charm is a problematic show, especially thanks to (but not limited to) Thomas Ravenel and the many sexual assault allegations between them. Recently, Kathryn Dennis came under fire for using the monkey emoji to refer to a Black woman in a DM conversation.
Last year, Shep Rose mocked a homeless woman and doubled down on his “jokes” before he eventually caved with a half-ass apology. We all know that “good people” don’t necessarily make for the best TV content, but do we really want to watch awful people saying and doing awful things? Well, recently, Bravo has decided to re-examine shows that have already aired, on the look out for racial insensitivities and outright racist behaviors.
As we patiently wait for Southern Charm to return to our screens I guess we can at least be thankful that this crew just keeps bringing the drama off-camera as well. Thomas Ravenel has a fresh ex-girlfriend he made a whole new baby with. Please don’t forget his history of arrests and sexual harassment claims! Meanwhile, his ex-ex-ex-(?) Kathryn Dennis has a new man. Word on the street is Kathryn is also being sued by her former image consultant. You know, after she was under-fire for her use of the monkey emoji when DMing with a black radio host.
Wow, for a show built on old money and family names this sure is a day-time court TV show waiting to happen. Let’s not forget that Craig Conover and Austen Kroll have been seen out several times maskless. Who wouldn’t want to stick around and hang out with these guys? Maybe like, Naomie Olindo and her hot new doctor boyfriend?
Most people like to lay low following a massive scandal so they can regroup, reflect, and ultimately, reinvent themselves for the better. However, former Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder is just not one of those people with (seemingly) staged paparazzi photos and early pregnancy announcements. What racism scandals? As a result of her racially offensive behavior, she got dropped by many brands. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Her agent and publicist cut ties with her. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Then, she hired a crisis management team.
But at least, she has one good thing going on right now. Stassi and Beau Clark are expecting their first child in January
and have been using this news to deflect from the Faith Stowers scandal and build up some goodwill.
When Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright got married, it was a real Bravo affair. Obviously, there were Vanderpump Rules cast members in attendance and as members of the wedding party, even though Jax regretted some of those decisions. Summer House alums and Shep Rose from Southern Charm attended the wedding as well. Jax and Britany even designated Shep as “the worst wedding guest.”
And now Scheana Marie is sharing her not-so-glowing review of Shep’s wedding… performance, if you will. She admitted that she had every intention of hooking up with him that weekend, but it just didn’t happen, thanks to alcohol.
Southern Charm viewers know Cameran Eubanks as the “normal” cast member since she has had zero drama on the show. Well, now she’s known as a former cast member. Last week the news broke that Cameran will not be returning to the show for another season. She has served as the voice of reason. She narrated every episode. However, her life was never at the center of the action.
Cam was one of the few reality TV stars who managed to have a private life, until last week anyway. After she announced her departure from the show, rumors swirled that her husband Jason Wimberly was having an affair with a Charleston-based makeup artist. This woman denied it, with support from Cameran and she accused Kathryn Dennis of starting and spreading the rumor.
From reports of multiple cast members leaving the show to accusations of racism and false infidelity rumors, there’s been so much drama happening with Southern Charm this week that it’s enough to make your head spin. And now, former cast member Landon Clements couldn’t resist chiming in with her two cents regarding the show’s recent headline-making scandals.
The one-time Charmer took to social media on Thursday (May 14) to look back at her time on Southern Charm and point the finger squarely at nemesis Kathryn Dennis for all the drama that’s currently brewing in Charleston.
Another reality TV bachelor may be off the market ladies! Shep Rose is known for being a confirmed Peter Pan-type frat boy who refuses to settle down. His single ways and aversion to commitment have long been chronicled on both Southern Charm and his own dating show, Relationshep.
Shep left his dating show without finding love and returned to Charleston as a single man. But now a new social media post suggests there may be a new serious lady in his life.
