I hate to say you told me so, but you told me so. Yep, it sounds like Southern Charm is in ICU and the prognosis isn’t looking too great. It might be time to call friends and family members and get out your favorite black outfit. By all accounts, the show is in trouble. I’ll say it, the current cast is circling the drain because Thomas Ravenel departed. We don’t have a lot of people bringing interest to the table these days. No one seemed fascinated by Austen Kroll’s journey in trying to be a boy toy and Shep Rose has less personality and dignity than Naomie Olindo’s cat.
If the truth hurts, this will too. The ladies of the cast are leaving fans high and dry. Cameran Eubanks was the voice of reason when the show began, now she is the voice of judgment and often glosses over her friends’ shitty behavior. Chelsea Meissner is lovely but dang, she lacks a life. Since her “love interest” is some dude on a boat at sea, there are no relationship storylines for her. Kathryn Dennis is drama personified but not legally able to speak about certain things. Quite frankly her moods were so strange last season, fans constantly wondered if she was either on something or just checked out. Now we are hearing production has delayed filming through January, and you know what that usually means. Are we watching one of Bravo’s old favorites taking it’s last few breaths?
It just goes to show the old cliché is true. There might be someone out there for everyone! Exhibit A: Ashley Jacobs. The former
victim girlfriend of Southern Charm alum, Thomas Ravenel, has certainly been unlucky in love. During her reality television stint we saw Ashley plucked from the polo fields of Santa Barbara and plopped in the swamp by Thomas’ guest house. Ashley made quite an impression on the cast and viewers alike, as in nobody wanted to be around her in any capacity. Ashley’s fondness for torturing Kathryn Dennis after her daily ritual of gaslighting by Thomas became exhausting.
Thomas and Ashley’s relationship was anything but conventional. It was toxic at best and Ashley seemed to embrace her role as the Villian of Charleston proper. She managed to alienate most everyone, eventually Thomas had enough of her antics as well. After a brief return to the show last season, Ashley figured out
everyone hates her she needed to head back to sunny California to start over. Now Ashley is spinning the wheel of love once again, and this time she landed on someone without an AARP card.
The gift that keeps on giving. Southern Charm’s former cast member Thomas Ravenel is no longer on the show, but has been creating lots of drama in real life.
Thomas and ex Kathryn Dennis could have had an entire show dedicated to the toxicity of their relationship. Yet, it’s not enough that the two of them were accusing the other of being a horrible person. Now, one of Thomas’ friends is getting involved.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
Craig Conover is (seemingly) the most innocent man on Southern Charm. Which says a lot considering the cast of characters who are still a part of the show – (side eye Shep Rose). Southern Charm is a great reality show, but sometimes the reality behind the series can get too dark – exhibit A and exhibit B. So, I’m happy to have lighter characters like Craig brighten my viewing.
Craig has spent the past two seasons getting over his relationship with Naomi Olindo. Most of his recent time on the show is spent drinking, sleeping till the late afternoon, and conning his friends into sewing pillows. Things finally seem to be turning around for Craig however – both in terms of business and personal relationships!
Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks has a unique place on the show. She has been Southern Charm’s narrator since its debut in 2014. Through six seasons, Cameran has offered up her take on the behavior of her castmates in a way few other reality stars have been able to do. Of course, Cameran is also a star of the series, but she has largely kept her personal life private, a rare feat in reality television.
Cameran’s doctor husband Jason Wimberly has been almost completely MIA from the show, although he did show up in last season’s finale. Unfortunately, he popped up while Cameran was fawning over Naomie Olindo’s boyfriend Metul Shah! We have gotten to know a little bit more about Cameran in the last few seasons as she has shared her fears about becoming a mother, as well as her worries about being a good parent to daughter Palmer. And her ambivalence about having a second child. Another thing we know about Cameran is that she and alcohol don’t always mix. Recently, Cameran revealed why she gets a little crazy sometimes when she drinks.
One of the perks of reality star fame is that it can be a great launching pad for starting businesses. Reality stars have branched off into clothing, makeup and skincare lines, restaurants, wines and more. Some of these endeavors have been successful, some of them not. It is understandable anyone would want to strike while the reality iron is hot.
Southern Charm’s Craig Conover is one reality star who has started to have some success in the business world. His co-stars snickered when Craig shared his dreams of making pillows, but during the past year, he has launched a business, Sewing Down South, that is becoming more and more successful. Two of Craig’s fiercest critics have been co-stars Shep Rose and Cameran Eubanks. We all know Shep is not likely to eat his throw pillow words anytime soon, but Cameran has started to see the light on Craig’s business venture.
Man, if this happens, it will be another ratings extravaganza for Bravo. They do love bringing back
criminals former cast members to shake things up. Like many of our faves, Southern Charm’s Cameran Eubanks showed up at BravoCon. This was actually good as fans of the show have speculated it might not return. Even cast members have seemed bewildered at the lack of filming. Word on the street is production will begin on Season 7 in January.
So the Charleston crew is probably breathing a sigh of relief that they aren’t dead yet. Last year viewers endured a trip down STD mountain and had their eyes repeatedly assaulted by the tragic sight of Austen Kroll in his underwear. Shep Rose seemingly grabbed the asswipe title and has hopefully adjusted his attitude as a result. Speaking of assault and asswipes, what’s happening with good ‘ole
boy Thomas Ravenel? T-Rav recently settled a custody dispute with Kathryn Dennis and all is well on Fantasy Island. Now that Thomas’ sexual assault case has also been resolved, will he dip his dainty toes back in the reality television pond? According to Cameran, it’s possible. Yikes.
