I still haven’t heard a thing from my primary sources about what went down during the reunion taping of Southern Charm last night. However, Andy Cohen can’t stop talking about it. He did an Instastory at half time about how great it was going. That typically means some female got dragged. Hopefully it’s Ashley.
Update: It never fails the second I hit publish an email comes in with new information. It’s nothing earthshattering. It basically says that Ashley is mentally ill and acted just like expected. She loves to accuse others of doing what she herself is really doing to them. It’s very bizarre and she seems to believe her lies. Then she acts like she is being victimized by the people she attacks.
Andy filmed WWHL right after the reunion with Captain Sandy and Fredrik Eklund. He was a hot mess and seem pretty drunk by the after show. He spilled his drink on his tie and everything.
Austen has a new girlfriend. He’s been traveling with her. He took her to St. Kitts with his family recently. She was with him on NYC. She’s really cute and fits in with the cast well. Expect to see a lot of her next season.
It was Chelsea’s birthday and everyone went out to a restaurant after the reunion to celebrate. Well, except for Ashley, obviously have not yet heard what was precisely said about Thomas at the reunion. Or if they mentioned that he is not returning next season.
Andy was talking a lot about the reunion on his talk show today. Here is what I was told about that.
I’m sure that you’ve had multiple people filling your inbox, but Andy talked about the reunion on his radio show (I had a meeting, so didn’t listen to the whole show.) He said it was long and took it out of him, but he thinks that they may get 3 episodes out of it. Said Southern Charm this season has risen to Vanderpump Rules level. Sounded pretty epic. Said that Ashley was on the couch with them for TWO HOURS, and it was at the end of the day. Said Bravo doesn’t like it when he does a reunion and then immediately goes and does a live WWHL. He thought it would be an easy one with last night’s guests, and admitted he was a bit off – that he broke his rule of not taking a sip of his cocktail until the show actually starts if he drinks at all… I don’t believe him that after that reunion he took his first sip around 10:45!Said it took it out of him… but sounded excited about it. Realized I made it sound that he was a Debbie Downer/bitching about it… more of a “can’t wait for everyone to watch” tone.
That’s what I know. It’s going to take some time for the news to trickle down, but if I hear anything else juicy I will let you know. The big news we already knew, Thomas is fired (he says he is not because technically his contract expired and they did not offer him a new one, but same thing. They do not want him back.) Ashley was there in a weird cheap looking white top and white pants apparently trying to look innocent. Or perhaps less anorexic.
Oh and I forgot about the second picture in this post. This was all over Twitter yesterday and seems to have originated from someone with production. The little titles seem petty. Craig’s was particularly “high school slam book.” Some I can’t even figure out at all. What is written next to Ashley’s name?
Also the reunion photo looks very disjointed. They should have some sort of Southern Charm theme to keep the looks more cohesive. Perhaps simply pastel colors, or black and white. Something. What do y’all think about the wardrobe?
