Southern Charm’s Shep Rose and business partner Taylor Grant took a big risk when they opened Palace Hotel, a bar and grill in Charleston’s Eastside neighborhood around two years ago. Surviving the first year is hard for any restaurant but the two seemed to be beating the odds.
Unfortunately, last Thursday, in the wee hours of the morning, one of the apartments above the bar caught on fire causing extensive water damage to the Palace Hotel. There were five people in the apartment above at the time of the fire. Four escaped unharmed but Shep told The Daily Dish that the fifth person was not as lucky. Shep explained, “With the help of our employees and a neighborhood resident, they were able to drag the gentleman out of the burning apartment. He’s now in critical condition. It was a very scary and tense situation. It’s just too early to tell about what will happen from here business-wise. We’re just hoping that the tenant upstairs is able to make it out of the hospital soon.”
Shep told his Instagram followers the Palace would be closed for the foreseeable future but plans to be back better than ever soon. Let’s hope so! I still want to go there for a $2 PBR and a haute hot dog!
But that is not the only major drama going on in Charleston….
Parents of two young children, Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis, appear to be at war again. It seems the Christmas season started off great for baby Kensie, who on only her second Christmas got her first Chanel bag! But something happened, as it usually does with these two that apparently started yet another battle of War of the Roses proportions!
According to FitsNews, the couple, who seems to always be either making beautiful babies or fighting like two tigers in one sack, had yet another huge blowout. Kathryn made the usual allegations against Thomas, he can’t see to keep his dick in his pants. Somehow this has become a legal matter with both sides filing some sort of legal action against the other. It’s not really clear what Kathryn filed because being a man whore is not against the law. Thomas is claiming that Kathryn took drugs during her last pregnancy according to the Fits story. This leads me to believe they are arguing over visitation.
The third season of Southern Charm wrapped filming just before the holidays so none of this will be on Season 3 unless they edit in some updates. Rumors abound that Thomas was hold out on filming season three. I’d put my money on him being there though. The unrequited love triangle of Kathryn and Whitney fighting over the disgraced man-child is the fulcrum upon which the entire storyline rests. If it weren’t for Kathryn’s major social media blast at the end of a floundering season two, we wouldn’t have even had a season three. As it stands now it should show up on our screens around April.
