Last night’s Southern Charm was like an SNL review from Stefon. It had EVERYTHING. Butt cracks and callousness, polo and pettiness, and after dark, this plantation rages with the owner of the Boar’s Nest, insecure Florence Nightengales, and one very promising comeback kid. There is so much to recap, I’ll just dive into the craziness. It’s why we’re all here, right?
Craig Conover is still suffering from the great butter knife incident of ’17, and it is making it very difficult for him to follow his dreams to master the Singer. He recruits his roommate for help while whining about Patricia Altschul not giving him one more day to produce the pillow that would knock her caftan right off–alas, Ms. Pat does things on principle…like not extended already greatly extended deadlines. She’s so rigid!
Last night’s episode of Southern Charm showed several of the cast members extremely worried about Kathryn Dennis and her safety as she went missing for a few days. Her building manager did a welfare check and declared she was physically okay. Kathryn later revealed that she was dealing with a bout of depression and needed to shut out the world for a while. Danni Baird, Naomie Olindo and Shep Rose weighed in on their thoughts during and after the incident.
On Southern Charm’s After Show, Danni Baird shared how unusual it is for Kathryn Dennis to ignore her calls. “Normally when she goes MIA or goes into hiding, she’ll respond to ME. this was a circumstance where she didn’t and it just kind of freaked me out a little bit. It was different than every other time.”
Thomas and his new girlfriend Ashley Jacobs have truly united the viewers (thanks to shared annoyance). Kathryn’s comeback story is easy to root for and she very casually hit us with the revelation that she and Shep Rosehave hooked up a few times after her daughter was born. Even Naomie Olindoand Austen Krolladmitted that they were shocked by the Thomas and Ashley fights and the Kathryn and Shep hookups when they were on Watch What Happens Live.
Disclaimer: I had a grand epiphany during last night’s Southern Charm, and it is shared throughout the recap. I knew the hyped disappearance of Kathryn Dennis had nothing to do with falling off the wagon, so I was hellbent on figuring out Bravo’s angle. I was horribly wrong in my assumption. What’s that saying about when you assume? I become an *asshat. I’ll own it. Regardless, this show keeps getting better and better! Let’s dive right in, shall we?
As the Charmers get ready for their day, Cameran Eubanks revels in her boobaliciousness to Chelsea Meissner, Thomas Ravenel tries to drown himself in his bathroom sink, and Danni Baird and Naomie Olindo are worried about Kathryn’s whereabouts. She skipped out on a boxing class with Naomie, and she isn’t answering any calls. Danni realizes it has been four days since her last communication with Kathryn. Concerned, Naomie dials Shep Rose, but he’s not worried. Have you seen Kathryn’s phone? It’s probably on the fritz.
Part of me is so annoyed by the constant Thomas Raveneland Ashley Jacobs drama on Southern Charm. Another part of me is so excited to see what they’re going to argue about next. Clearly they’re still together (maybe), so none of these arguments can really be that bad. Plus, they’re probably just hamming it up for the sake of a story line.
Nevertheless, this season of Southern Charm has been so good and he show has made Thursday a night to look forward to.
You know what they say, “the costars that take photos together stay together.” Well, no one actually says that, but it does make some sense. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars spent some quality time with their castmates (and their fellow network celebs) this week. And of course, they documented it all on Instagram.
