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.
Let’s begin with something positive. The most recent appearance of Thomas Ravenel in our news feed does not have anything to do with court! Earlier this month, Thomas’ children lost their maternal grandmother. Kathryn Dennis mother Allison, passed away after battling cancer. According to Thomas, Allison played a huge role in his kids’ lives, as she lived with Kathryn during her treatment. Thomas had even previously accused Kathryn’s mom of “doing all of the work” with Kensie and Saint, while in the care of their mother. Days before her death, Allison went to court to refute these allegations, and commend her daughter’s parenting skills.
Allison’s struggle ended on August 7. Now, this subject matter involves your opinion on the appropriate measures of etiquette following a family death. The former Southern Charm star found himself the recipient of many unpleasant reactions after posting a photo to social media. It might be worth noting, prior to this incident, Thomas had not been active on Twitter since June 1. While Thomas is not standing in front of a judge
for once, this trial is being held in the court of public opinion.
Well this has been a long time coming. It’s only been three years, but honestly this court case has aged us all. Thankfully, it looks like the custody saga between Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel has reached a plateau.The former Southern Charm couple didn’t make it easy on each other, or their kids, but hopefully this resolution will allow all involved to heal accordingly. He implied Kathryn used drugs with the Southern Charm crew and producers. Upon requesting her medical records, Thomas claimed Kathryn had an abortion and was promiscuous with men. Pretty much the only thing he didn’t accuse her of is sexual assault, though I guess he has that one covered.
Kathryn definitely has her own demons. She admitted to a problem with substance abuse and subsequently went to rehab. Kathryn also found herself the pariah of her cast mates, when uncouth behavior made her a social outcast. After Thomas’ own uncouth behavior found him behind bars, the tide began to turn against Kathryn’s ex. His arrest encouraged Kathryn to file for sole custody and the mud slinging really began. It’s safe to say Kathryn and Thomas could carry Southern Charm on their own, but now we’re finding out one chapter of this non-storybook romance is finally ending.
Can you believe it was the finale of Southern Charm this week? I always think the the show goes by too quickly. Not a lot has happened this season, but you can’t have high drama all the time. You would never appreciate the really good stuff when it happens!
The Charmers often save their biggest drama for off camera–like the custody battle of Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel. Plus, the social media gaffes and embarrassing escapades of Shep Rose. You have to wonder–where is all the on-screen juicy drama in South Carolina? Southern Charm cast member Cameran Eubanks must think that there is plenty of drama in the state, as she shared that South Carolina might be the perfect place for another Bravo franchise known for high histrionics.
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!
Shep Rose has had quite a season on Southern Charm. His witty personality and the size of his
ego wallet made him one of the more watchable characters in the past. Eternally single, his lack of relationship and hilarious antics became a recurring theme of the show. As his popularity quickly increased, Bravo spawned a spin-off program for the favored bachelor, chronicling his search to find love. Spoiler alert, he didn’t find love.
We have seen another side of Shep this year. A side not quite so charming, a tad less humorous than in the past. Austen Kroll’s girlfriend, Madison LeCroy has been the new target of Shep’s thinly-veiled insults. Shep has been unable to hide
being butthurt his disparaging thoughts on his friend’s relationship. Shep even referred to Madison as “white trash,” a taunt not lost on his castmates. He also implied Austen needs to control his woman, as Madison is not one to slink away from Shep’s petty intimidation attempts. While Madison’s mouth has gotten her into a caldron of hot water, Shep is not to be outdone. Recently, the 39-year-old man pulled a stunt. Another action he thought was terribly amusing. In the wake of posting an extremely insulting video of a homeless woman, Shep is hiding trying to manage the fallout of his ignorance.
Can you believe that the season finale of Southern Charm is next week? With the absence of Thomas Ravenel, the show has not been as dramatic as in the past. However, one cast member’s ugly accusation turned the show upside down a few weeks ago. Austen Kroll’s sometime girlfriend Madison Lecroy accused Shep Rose of giving Danni Baird chlamydia.
The season-long animosity between Shep and Madison escalated at the end of the cast Colorado trip in a dangerous game of one-upmanship between the two. Poor Danni was the collateral damage in their dispute. To me, the accusation is one of the all-time most uncomfortable reality television moments. Apparently, some of the Southern Charm cast feels the same way.
He loves her, he loves her not? Southern Charm’s ex-couple
that just won’t quit Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel are back in the news again as another tidbit from a court filing as been made public.
In the latest headache that is the Kathryn and Thomas show, Kathryn is now claiming that Thomas recently told her he loved her. On behalf of everyone..WTF?
