A lot can change in one season of a reality TV show. Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul did not get along at all for the first four seasons of the show. Now, Kathryn is celebrating her birthday with Patricia at a surprise party.
Did Patricia throw the surprise party? That is unclear, but if that’s the case then these two have really come a long way. Shep Rosewas also on hand for the festivities. After Kathryn revealed their clandestine hookups on Season 5, there are plenty of viewers rooting for them to date. Was he there as a friend? Or as something more?
The Southern Charmviewers saw Kathryn Dennismeet and fall in love with her ex Thomas Ravenel (and we also watched the relationship’s demise). Now she’s ready for a major upgrade. Just like the rest of us, Kathryn was live tweeting and retweeting along with the last episode of The Bachelorette last week.
As I scrolled through my Twitter feed, I couldn’t help thinking that it was cool we had this in common since there are far too many reality stars that brag about not watching reality TV- even though it’s a direct diss to their profession. But another tweeter had much more entertaining thought: Kathryn should star in the next season of The Bachelorette. That would definitely be an entertaining season.
It’s a sad day for Southern Charm fans! Tonight is the conclusion of the Southern Charm reunion episodes! The Charleston crew goes out with a bang tonight, or five if you’re Shep and Kathryn. Wink Wink.
On tonight’s reunion episode, the cast will discuss the Shep Rose and Kathryn Dennis hookups. They giggle their way through the conversation, confessing they have great physical chemistry and admit to hooking up at least five times.
To say I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the Southern Charm reunion would be a gigantic understatement. I’m even more excited to be watching it in Charleston with my trusty college roommates, Kristen and Haze. They are just as die-hard fans as I am!
The Charmers are getting ready for what is sure to be a draining day. Austen Kroll and Shep Rose are having a sausage fest as Cameran Eubanks preps to watch the smackdown between Kathryn Dennis and the absent Thomas Ravenel’s money spender. As usual, the cast is more casual than other reunions, with the exception of Kathryn who is highlighting her new boobs in a bedazzled gown. Chelsea Meissner looks stunning. Andy Cohen welcomes the crew, hitting on Craig Conover and Shep while highlighting Naomie Olindo sitting on an opposite couch from her ex. He is excited that Austen has brought him beer and Craig may have a few pillows for the clubhouse. Andy reads a statement from T-Rav’s attorneys which asserts he is cooperating with authorities during his ongoing investigation. Thomas believes he will be vindicated, although I’m not sure he knows the meaning of the word.
Were you suffering from Southern Charm withdrawals last week? I know I was. While the last episode gave us friendship and butt crack, last night was all about drama and formality. It certainly delivered, although Bravo sure knows how to gloss over current events, doesn’t it?
Craig Conover is still living like a college student (and that statement is an insult to college students), and he welcomes Cameran Eubanks into his halfway house. She’s critical of the space, which is well-deserved, but she puts on airs when she sniffs the box wine he offers. She grills him about practicing law, but he counters that he’s yet to be sworn into the bar. He’s still working on the Character and Fitness portion of the application. As someone who went through this a while ago, the bar is basically making sure he doesn’t have an errant DUI (a regular one is fine…I don’t know that first hand, but I have some friends…) and isn’t an ax murderer. Clearly, Bravo reality whore ranks up there as a reason one wouldn’t be fit to practice law–in South Carolina. That’s a hard feat given the lawyers I know! Craig claims his pillow business is thriving, so attorney ethics benchmarks be damned! He presents Cameran with a bunch of pillowcases that he just needs to stuff before fulfilling his orders. She, like the rest of America, wonders what he’s waiting for with his sham empire. Was sham empire a pun? I didn’t think so until I typed it! She poo-poos his pillow situation as a distraction. Craig needs to focus on one thing. Isn’t he seeing a life coach? Craig admits that he stopped returning his life coach’s calls. Why can’t he take accountability? Craig reveals that Naomie Olindo may not have been wrong in labeling him a drifter.
