What happened in Charleston this week? A strawberry festival, mermaids
visited the aquarium and a new episode of Southern Charm. This week brought
us another lackluster snoozer episode. Highlights include the men not
shooting anything on Shep's plantation, Kathryn giving us way too much
bare-back information (TMBBI), Cameron reveals her gold digging habits and
Craig being his usual horrible self.
Shep's family owns a plantation. Basically this means they own a large
amount of land and probably participated in pre-Civil War slave trade.
Anywhere else in the US, a family owning a large amount of land would be
referred to as the family's farm or ranch. Not a plantation. Can we please
retire the plantation term?
Thomas and Kathryn
T-Rav and Kathryn are the show's darlings. Their love story is the plot. As
we previously learned Craig is the only guy in the show Kathryn has not
slept with and Craig cannot stop talking about it. He is soooo bitter and
judgy about the whole affair. This week we watch T-Rav grapple with the
information Craig forks out over the dinner table. T-Rav handles it
surprisingly well. He comes off a genuine and accepting person -
rationalizing the situation by reminding everyone she is only 21 and if she
were a man people would be congratulating her. It forced me to think he
might be someone worth having a drink with.
To help seal their relationship, T-Rav and Kathryn visit her parent's
house. It's time for T-Rav to meet the parents. T-Rav looks older than both
parents. At a minimum, he is similar in age. Kathryn's father takes him
aside for a man-to-man chat. T-Rav actually seems nervous and very aware of
the fact that her parents are probably not impressed. In a surprise turn of
events, Kathryn's father was totally okay with her current gig. Is this an
On the ride to Shep's plantation, we learn more about the relationship. The
charming Southern Charm ladies charmingly questioned Kathryn as to extreme
details regarding she and T-Rav's sex life. Only US Airways tweets matched
the ladies in crudeness this week. What did they and we learn? Kathryn and
T-Rav are not being careful. They are probably trying to get pregnant. BUT
she keeps drinking and we've not once observed her popping a Folic Acid
pill! Note to female viewers despite what you see on Southern Charm,
excessive drinking and pregnancy do not go well together.
Based upon last week's spoiler and this week's announcement sounds like
T-Rav and Kathryn are no longer just trying. On March 24, the couple
welcomed a very cute baby girl into the world. Oh my.
Not much happened with the show's other characters. Cameran 'sold' Whitney
a lease. She was so could think of nothing but her upcoming payout from the
deal. Who is the true gold digger on the show Kathryn or Cameron?
Did you think Whitney's new digs looked great (minus the pedestrian
furniture)? You too can rent a room from the Charleston boutique hotel,
Restoration on King. Is a room for rent all his real estate agent could
Gun Safety Lessons. Shep does a great job of giving Danni a gun safety
lesson, while she wore earmuffs. How very effective.
Missing Mommy Dearest. Where was Whitney's Mom? She was dearly missed in
this episode. We need to see more of her!
What Reality TV Show is Complete Without Pole Dancing? Whitney loves a
pole. Discuss amongst yourselves. The puns are endless.
Charlestonian Thoughts. It should be noted the residents of Charleston are
split regarding the show. Some residents dislike the show because they feel
it reflects poorly on our fair city. Other residents laugh at the 'reality'
TV shenanigans and hope the show gets renewed for a second season. If you
are a non-Charleston resident please do not believe everything you see on
