ATTN OTHER MEDIA: This is a four-part series of EXCLUSIVE details of related to the filming of season six of Southern Charm collected from Tamara Tattles exclusive sources over several months.

Just over a week after the plantation fiasco, during the week before Christmas, the cast went to Colorado on an all cast trip. I’m actually looking forward to that episode since it was relatively drama free. Ashley Jacobs was of course not invited because she is not part of the cast, she is just being used by production to stir up controversy. It’s not working. So far it just makes her look like an even bigger loser who hangs around where she is not wanted.
While the cast was in Colorado, Kathryn Dennis posted the above photo with her BFF, Dani with the caption “We’re in a serious relationship.” Amazingly, sites including “The Bravo site” posted this as a serious thing. At least the Bravo site didn’t include the words “dating” or “banging” like some other sites did. I should take this time to let you know that the Bravo site isn’t run by Bravo. It’s owned by Bravo but The Dish, and Jetset,etc have writers who generally don’t have any more insight to what is going on than any other site without good sources. I believe they finally edited their post to make it seem like they weren’t taking the “serious relationship” seriously, but they were at first.

From everything I heard about the Colorado trip,there was not much drama and everyone had a good time. At least the girls did. The guys may have still been squabbling a bit at this point but by the end of it they were coming together. At the finale taping (more on that in part four), from what I understand everything went well and relationships were all intact. Shep Rose will go after at least one of the guys probably Austen Kroll because he always does. Hopefully, it won’t be Craig Conover. I hate when these people jump on Craig Conover over absolutely nothing.
The reason I mention the Colorado trip, where a good time was had by all, is because Naomi Olindo did not come on the trip. She was on the call sheet and expected to attend the all cast trip, but her live in doctor boyfriend would not allow her to go because Craig Conover would be on the trip. Wow, what an insecure guy Naomi Olindo has. She really does have a type: Attractive, likely sexually fluid, and full of insecurities. Anyway, Naomi Olindo stayed home, defying production demands.
Haymaker doesn’t like it when people don’t show up to film. Aaron Rothman decided Naomi was forced to film a one on one with Ashley. Talk about a high price to pay! She already lost money for not being in the Colorado episodes! From what I heard from Tamara Tattles exclusive sources is that Naomi Olindo and Ashley Jacobs went for coffee or something to film a conversation. Naomi was polite and listened to Ashley Jacobs try to justify her behavior. She alternately blamed it all on Thomas Ravenel, or Kathryn Dennis, or whatever.
Naomi told her in her most pleasant way that she should go home to her mother in California because there is nothing good for her in Charleston. Wise words of guidance that she didn’t follow.
Ashley’s second shoot for the season was also a dud. Naomi did not give production the drama they wanted. This footage may end up on the cutting room floor. Strike two for production.
