It’s completely surreal to be watching the early stages of the pandemic play out on Southern Charm. As we move into that, we’re going to dive into the Black Lives Matter movement as well. I kind of love this. It’s a real and raw season, and we’re showcasing the state of America. So much went down in the beginning of the lockdown, so it’s great to be able to view it in this lens.
Flashing two months later following the beginning of the pandemic is a fascinating time jump. Things are opening back up, but life is nowhere near normal. Between the social justice movements and the virus, there’s so much happening in Charleston. We’re going to get a view of where all of the guys and girls stand on these issues. Who is taking it seriously? Who is standing up for change? That’s what we’re FINALLY going to learn.
The ladies and gentleman of Southern Charm are about to be hit with a dose of reality like never before. COVID-19 is making its debut in this episode, and things will never be the same again. Everything is going to be different moving forward. It’ll be interesting to see how they navigate filming in the midst of the pandemic. This was one of the network’s first shows to be impacted by the virus.
The drama is heating up within the group though. The arrival of John Pringle might end up being the worst thing to ever happen to Austen Kroll. His interest in Austen’s girlfriend Madison LeCroy is SUSPECT. This man JUST came into the group, and this is the chaos he is already causing. There are so many other women in Charleston that he could pursue. Why set your sights on someone you know is in a relationship?
The new season of Southern Charm has been eventful so far with the introduction of Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. Neither are shy about giving their opinions, and they’re the shakeup the show needed. Pringle’s infatuation with Madison LeCroy is absolutely going to lead to a feud with Austen Kroll. It’s so messy and so dramatic, but that’s why we love this show. MORE PLEASE!
Kathryn Dennis has been toying with the possibility of making things work with Thomas Ravenel. However, she has to know that’s a horrible idea? Right? What could she be thinking? Going down that road again with Thomas surely is not going to end well for either of them. Something needs to go down that ends them forever. As horrible as that sounds, it’s the only way she will learn her lesson. Here’s hoping!
Southern Charm is back, and it might be one of the best season’s yet. New cast members Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle are already bringing a fresher vibe that the show really needed. They’re on the path to make up for the slew of cast members we lost prior to the season. One thing that hasn’t changed however is how shady Shep Rose can be. It’s definitely looking like he purposely set up Madison LeCroy at his party.
Another source of tension in the group right now is Kathryn Dennis starting a rumor about Cameran Eubanks and her husband Jason Whimberly. Whether the cheating allegations are true or not remain to be seen, but she definitely did this with malicious intent. It’s wild that this was enough to send Cameran packing from the show. That kind of exit makes you wonder if the rumors were in fact true. We’re in for a crazy season.
After what seems like the longest hiatus ever, Southern Charm is FINALLY back. Kathryn Dennis, Craig Conover, Shep Rose, Madison LeCroy, and Austen Kroll are all returning. However, Cameran Eubanks, Naomie Olindo, and Chelsea Meissner will NOT be featured this season. It’s sad to see them go, but it’s an exciting new direction for the series. Leva Bonaparte & John Pringle are joining as series regulars!
It’s going to be so interesting to see the extent that the pandemic impacts the season. From the looks of things, it affects everyone on the cast in some capacity. This is going to be good! The way all of these shows have been forced to change things because of the virus has been fascinating. Seeing why Cameran exited the show right as it began filming the new season. Something nasty went down, and we need to get to the bottom of it!
Our summer with the folks of Southern Charm has come to a bittersweet end. Sweet because it’s over, and bitter because the story line centered around a withering bromance and toxic romance of an Austen Kroll triangle. The wayward beer enthusiast spent the season entangled in a twisted web, pulled between his snobby, elitist wing man and shrill, roid-raging girlfriend. It wasn’t the stuff of Bravo dreams…that’s for sure!
Andy Cohen welcomes Danni Baird to the sofa before Austen continues to lecture Kathryn Dennis about her admittedly odd Watch What Happens Live appearance. Naomie Olindo interjects to state that a friend of hers witnessed Kathryn drinking before her evening in the clubhouse. Cameran Eubanks had the same snitch friend texting her this intel as well. Kathryn maintains that she didn’t have a sip of alcohol before WWHL, and she’d admit it if she did.
In fact, Kathryn has already shared that she is back to drinking in moderation…whatever that means. Craig Conover reveals that often times the cast has lied about seeing Kathryn drink because they didn’t think she was allowed to drink. Shep Rose agrees that they have all defended Kathryn’s reputation more than she knows.
Geez Louise. There is a lot to unpack from last night’s Southern Charm reunion, the least of which was the spectrum of outfits…but seriously, can we talk about that for a quick second? Cameran Eubanks keeps it chic and simple with her gorgeous dress and amazing shoes, but the rest of the ladies are all over the map! While Naomie Olindo looks cute repping her line, she could be at a dance club or hanging out at the mall in the 80’s with her look. And while we’re on the subject of the 80’s, Chelsea Meissner stole her dress from the Dynasty costume archives. Of course, no one’s ensemble is more confusing than Kathryn Dennis’ bridesmaid’s dress and matching eye shadow. It’s just…a lot.
Cameran is under fire from some viewers who thought she whined too much about motherhood. Instead of being defensive, Cameran admits that she cringed a bit watching some of her complaints this season. While she misses her career and the adult time it afforded her, she knows she is incredibly lucky to be able to afford to be a stay-at-home mom. Motherhood has certainly changed Cameran, and she loves that she can watch Palmer grow and change each day. Cam apologizes if she came across spoiled or privileged as she is very aware of her good fortune. Kathryn comes to Cameran’s defense, asserting that every mother struggles with the same feelings of guilt and the inability to balance.
Well, last night we finally got to see the two minutes of cocktail chaos that Southern Charm has been teasing us with all season! While the party crash was anti-climatic, the real drama was the demise of a bromance and the rise to fame of those elusive ladies from the cell phone footage…let’s dig in, shall we?
Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul are shopping at Gwynn’s and exploring fifty shades of Gucci. As they try on shoes for Pat’s upcoming cocktail party, the pair gossip about Shep Rose’s horrible attitude towards Austen Kroll’s relationship with Madison LeCroy. Patricia reveals what we’ve all known–Shep despises Madison because she once rebuffed his advances. Color me shocked by that news!
