Let’s Talk…Southern Charm

Happy Monday!

Friends, let’s talk about something REALLY serious…
 Just kidding.  🙂

Not serious at all.  But who out there is watching Southern Charm?

Anyone with me?  Raise your hand if you’re out there. 

I started watching Southern Charm last year.  I was way behind, started all the way back at Season One, and am caught up right now watching Season Five.  It’s a guilty pleasure, reality television show that follows the lives of seven adults all living in Charleston, South Carolina.  And it’s good.  It’s real good.  {Rated R}

The main cast is made up of some living on family money, some who married into money, some super hard working making their own money, and others are jobless and you wonder how they have any money!  Or at least I do!  🙂

A few of my FAVORITE things about this show…

*CAMERAN!  Do you follow Cameran on Instagram?  She is one of my favorite feeds to follow.  She is a new mama and is always keepin’ it real.  Most of the time we can ALL relate!  One of my favorite things she’s shared lately was a picture of an eaten rotisserie chicken and her caption said something about one of her favorite meals to make for her husband is the rotisserie chicken from Publix.  She went on to say she even prefers to serve it in the plastic container from the store.  ha!  We’ve ALL been there.  Haven’t we?  And most often on the show I feel like she is the voice of reason.  #loveher

*ALL THE COLORS!  Most of the time the cast is chock full of bright vibrant colors. This cast does not shy away from the colors.  I love it.  I got finished watching this week and MIGHT have hopped on Lilly Pullitzer’s website to try a couple things.  All of her prints scream, “SUMMER VACATION!!” to me so I’m getting prepared.

*Speaking of ALL THE COLORS…I also ordered a spring/summer Barrington tote and if that palm beach leaf pattern doesn’t scream, “SUMMER!”.  Then I don’t know what does.  I left the initials blank so you can imagine your own there.  ha!

*THESE TWO…Shep and Austen…I’ve loved watching their friendship, {WAIT FOR IT} their SOUTHERN CHARM, and their dating lives play out on the show but HOW DO THEY HAVE MONEY TO LIVE?!  Shep has family money.  Right?  But what about Austen?  And if Chelsea isn’t the most precious thing!  I’m not sure why one of these guys isn’t doing everything they can to snatch her up?!  #shesgorgeous

*The MUSIC…The show has fun, catchy music and I seriously find myself dancing along as I watch.  #yesidothat

*THE DRAMA…Let’s be real, the reason we enjoy reality television is the drama.  Right?  This show isn’t lacking in the drama department.

*TAKES ME BACK…I think the music, the people, and the vibe of the show takes me back to one of my very favorite weekends.  I know this was New Orleans and the show is all Charleston, but I do see a few similarities.  {By the way, are you watching Southern Charm-New Orleans?!}  Apparently, I really let my people know how much fun that wedding weekend was because we were just talking about weddings the other day and Ebby Lee let us all know she wants to get married in New Orleans.  And she’s never been, BUT she knows a wedding there is a good time.  🙂

If you’re looking for a show to keep you entertained, well look no further.  The drama, the architecture of the gorgeous city, the cast of characters, and well-the Southern Charm will keep you coming back for more every week on Bravo.  You can catch up on episodes via the Bravo app, purchase on Amazon Prime, or maybe catch reruns on Bravo-if you’re lucky?

If you’re a Southern Charm watcher, please share and tell me your FAVORITE thing about the show!  

Have a GREAT day, Everyone!

    It's definitely a guilty pleasure

    I love Southern Charm too! Cameran’s style and bright colors are amazing! I also love seeing Charleston and the surrounding beaches & islands in the background. It is such a beautiful area! It is definitely one of my favorites!

    Cameran is just downright hilarious and beautiful! I agree – what is wrong with Shep or Austen….Chelsea seems like the total package! So obsessed with this show.

    Cameron is one of my favorite Bravolebrities! (Is that a real word!?) her Instagram is so real, and her daughter is just adorable! Southern Charm is such a good guilty pleasure.

    LOVE Southern Charm! But, what is up with Thomas' new girlfriend? Not sure I trust her #moneyhungry My favorite is also Cameron and love following her on IG! And Chelsea..she's gorgeous!

    Emily said:

    I’m going to come off as a crazy fan girl, but I do love the show and discuss it with my friends like we know them. Cameron makes the show and agree her Instagram is the best. Kathryn drives me crazy but she is better this season. I used to be so annoyed by Craig but also is better so far this season (and I like how he is into his sewing ha). I think he went thru a phase of trying to be one of the guys that has money but didn’t have to work, yet he lacked the trust fund part. Did you see they made a shirt that says “Craig is my lawyer”?? I like how Shep can just casually throw out how smart and well read he is. And it makes me laugh how Thomas and Whitney are in their 50s and still running around with the 20and 30 year olds!

    So far I’m not liking the NOLA version, and Savannah wasn’t great either. Nola feels more like a real housewives. Those Charleston peeps just have the perfect mix of fun and crazy.

    Kara said:

    Love, Love, Love Southern Charm! Yes, it is my guilty pleasure. I make everyone in my house leave alone to watch it along with an adult beverage. Cameron is my favorite and I would LOVE to hang with her. Chelsea is great although I have been kinda disappointed in her instagram.
    Can't stand Craig…glad Landon is not on this season.
    Didn't like Whitney at first, but he has grown on me.

    I could go on and on….I wish there was a group chat about the show. 🙂

    I have never seen this show or really even heard of it to be honest, but you have convinced me to watch it. I am going to have to hunt down the first season and start binge watching!

    LOVE Southern Charm!!! Cameran is the coolest chick ever. I have been watching The Real World San Diego (her season) on dailymotion.com lately. She hasn't aged a DAY since then. It's so unfair!! And her housemate, Jamie Chung, is a full-blown legit actress now too! And I have to add that Southern Charm New Orleans is disappointing me so far. Just like last year's spin-off attempt. Womp womp. 🙁 That Inspired Chick

    I'm ALL about Southern Charm as well and definitely a member of the Cameran Fan Club. Also, I could not agree more about Chelsea. So sweet and stunningly gorgeous. What are these men doing? Though, maybe she's too good for them.

    Southern Charm is one of my favorites! I am a huge Cameran fan (I love her Instagram stories), but I also have a soft spot for Craig! There's just something about him. Maybe it's his sewing or the fact that Naomie is so mean! I was in Charleston last year and searched and searched for the cast, to no avail.

    Sara said:

    Yes, yes, yes! Love Southern Charm. And there's a new one starting up in New Orleans! Cam's Insta stories have me cracking up half the day. And Elvis….Oh, Elvis! Love it all.

    We've only had season 1 in England and I'm the only person I know who has watched or heard of it. This is my take so far after S1- they all drink a lot, all day. Kathryn slurs a lot. Shep is somehow very loveable but useless. Cameran kindly and subtley mocks them. Thomas is kind of charming but delusional and also pretty useless. The sunshine and arcitecture is gorgeous and pure escapism in winter. But I mostly get entertained by the fact they are a bunch of loveable useless lushes. Joanne x

    I discovered Southern Charm Savannah last year and liked it, so am now curious to know if is not coming back on. (can someone help me out here?) It made me want to watch the SC – Charleston but forgot about it until now and after reading this, I want to start binge watching right now!!! I will definitely have to check out SC – New Orleans as I am a Louisiana girl (living in Texas) and love me some New Orleans! ❤️

    My favorite guilty pleasure! Cameran is a hoot and a half. Craig’s sewing 💕💕. The old money and family history is fascinating to me. And Patricia and her butler cuhrack me up. I may be just a tad obsessed with all of their social media 😳

    I think they each get around 200-300K a season for the show, show obviously some (cough cough, Austin, Craig and Kathryn) live on that…. Great show:)

    Oh my! I have been watching Southern Charm since season 1 and adore Cameron and now have a love for Chelsea. They are both gorgeous, precious, and adorable. How can you not love Shep? I mean, he is a train wreck sometimes but you cannot help but watch it happen… I love this show and Cameron. I would love to see the show do a spin-off of just Cameron and her life. Wouldn't that be a hoot?!

    I started watching Southern Charm New Orleans because I love me some New Orleans! That is where my people are from…. not all from NOLA but southern Louisiana where the food is beyond amazing and so are the people.

    Love reading about you and your precious family…. thanks for sharing everything with us.
