Tonight is the night! Bravo premieres the all new series Southern Charm New Orleans!
From Bravo’s summary of tonight’s episode: “Welcome to life in the Big Easy! Hidden away from the beer, boobs and beads of Bourbon Street is a high society of wealth, champagne and costume balls, with a healthy dash of voodoo magic. Meet the high-class ladies and gents of this tight-knit group as they strut their stuff at the biggest party of the year, Mardi Gras. Later, secrets will be revealed during a birthday party that will ultimately steal the spotlight from its guest of honor.”
Bravo loves a franchise…and why shouldn’t it? Just recall Real Housewives! However, has Bravo actually mastered the spin-off? The verdict is still out on Relationshep, but what was that if not a hook for the latest season of South of Broad mischief? I’m going to reserve judgment. Some things just can’t be improved upon, especially when we’re talking about the OG Southern dysfunction that is my one true love, Southern Charm. They’re just so adorably flawed, it’s perfection. I mean, look at Thomas Ravenel (or don’t–he’s a mess!). We watched Southern Charm Savannah, and that’s the end of that sentence. However, will the viewers watch–and LOVE–Southern Charm New Orleans? Only time will tell, but I’m excited about the prospect…and the bayou drama!
Thankfully, we have the cast bios and teaser trailer for Bravo’s latest mint julep and old money shenanigans set in the Big Easy. I’m optimistic, which is a positive. Let’s give it a go and meet the cast of Southern Charm New Orleans, shall we?
