Southern Charm New Orleans

Cynthia Bailey Mike Hill

We all know how much Cynthia Bailey wanted to marry Mike Hill. Even before he popped the question, she was talking about their upcoming wedding. She even created her own (over-used) hashtag #Chill, which was clever at first, but got played out after its excessive use.

Now, it’s official. Cynthia did something that no other Real Housewife has done before- she got married twice on the show. And, no, those ill-fated vow renewals don’t count. Hopefully, the day went better than when she married Peter Thomas. Her sister hid their marriage license, making it clear that both she and her mother disapproved of the union. Clearly, their instincts were on point with that one.

Southern Charm Naomie Olindo

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?

Southern Charm New Orleans’ Reagan And Jeff Charleston Announce Separation The Day After Season One Finale Airs

Well knock me over with a feather! I wasn’t expecting to hear this news…so soon after the finale, at least! With Southern Charm New Orleans’ inaugural season officially on the books, one couple has seen the writing on the wall as far as their union is concerned—or at least the wife is. Chalk it up as another win for that dreaded reality television marriage curse!

The relationship struggles of Reagan and Jeff Charleston were well documented by Bravo. Whether it was Reagan getting her own French Quarter crash pad an hour from her marital home or Jeff confronting his own issues through counseling, the pair went through a lot in the short season.

Southern Charm New Orleans Recap:

It’s hard to believe last night was the finale of Southern Charm New Orleans. I’ve really grown attached to these folks, and let’s be honest. These gentlemen are easy on the eyes! If you don’t believe me, let’s start the recap, shall we? Lots of gratuitous skin on the final episode which suited lil’ ol’ me just fine!

Jon Moody is prepping canvases for Gian’s party, but I’m not really focused on his artwork. Damn. Although swimming in athletic leggings. He takes a call from Gian who is very excited about the party. Speaking of Gian, Tamica Lee shares with her friends over brunch that Gian has blocked her on social media. She reveals that the pair had a very frank conversation about Gian’s treatment of Barry Smith and his dreaded “f-word” situation. Reagan Charleston comes to her friend’s defense. Barry was so quick to recognize and apologize for his behavior, and Gian heard the story third hand. Susan agrees. It’s ridiculous for Gian to have cut business ties with Barry as if she’s never said something completely ignorant and regrettable. Reagan is sure Gian’s jealousy of Tamica dates back to their high school days. Regardless, the ladies believe both Gian and Tamica are more alike than Tamica is willing the admit…and they are still going to be serving together on the board of Son of a Saint.

Southern Charm New Orleans Recap:

Southern Charm New Orleans has been a wonderful addition to my Sunday night. Jeff Charleston is so damn nice. All of these men are. I’ll go to one of their guys’ nights and promise not to complain when naked ladies make an appearance. Last night’s episode was no exception as to how kind, fun, and level-headed these gentlemen are.

After a thankfully uneventful night at the Myrtles, the crew is packing their bags. Jon Moody was missing his sock when he woke up, but the noises that freaked out Tamica Lee and Barry Smith were courtesy of their friend Susan and cousin Jared. Justin Reese completely ghosted with girlfriend Kelsey to spend the night at a hotel. The group convenes for lunch, and Justin isn’t scared to admit he’s terrified of ghosts. As Justin continues to say he’s fine, and Tamica takes the opportunity to share a story about her father dying of a heart attack at a young age. Barry interrupts to ask her to pass some sauce, and she is livid. While it is rude behavior, I don’t think Barry was listening to his wife’s conversation given the large number of people at the long table.

Southern Charm New Orleans Recap:

Southern Charm New Orleans really upped its game last night. Not only was my mouth watering the entirety of the show, the New Orleans crowd actually had a fun time together! Other than spending far too much time falling down a Myrtles rabbit hole on the internet (and not getting much sleep last night because of it), this episode solidified my adoration for this show. Take that, Savannah!

Reagan Charleston is blessing her new French Quarter apartment by burning sage with her sister as husband Jeff tends to the dogs thirty plus miles (and one long-ass bridge) away. Tamica Lee is about to head out of town with her cousin Jared. She straddles Jared and packs some roadies. The pair is heading to see Jared’s mom in the country after his recent coming out to his friend group. While he’s now told her he is gay, he hasn’t seen her face-to-face. Barry Smith bids farewell to his wife who isn’t looking forward to the road trip.

Southern Charm New Orleans Recap:

Southern Charm New Orleans is proving itself to be a Bravo contender. The combination of beautiful people stirring the pot has always been a winner, but throw in some voodoo and a level of self-absorption that defies the norm, and I’m certainly going to watch.

After the explosive end to Reagan Charleston’s jewelry launch, Tamica Lee, Reagan, and outlying friend Rachel are brunching at Nicelle’s home. In the French Quarter, Barry Smith is stewing in his bad judgment and the slur he spouted during his screaming match with Jon Moody’s friend. He’s lunching with Justin Reese and Tamica’s brother while rehashing the night. When he tells his friends what he said, Justin is floored. You can’t say that word unless you’re British and asking a cigarette or you’re looking for a bundle of sticks. Barry recognizes it was wrong, but the guy still continued to get in his face even after apologizing. Justin still can’t wrap his head around it. To him, it’s the equivalent of a white person using the n-word. A derogatory slur is a derogatory slur.
