As if we didn’t get enough screaming and yelling already this season, it’s time for the Southern Charm Recap of the reunion. I wonder if Leva, who is not happy with her social media feedback, especially here, will stop screaming at everyone else to shut the fuck up. It’s amazing to me that someone could be so sensitive to social media feedback after being so judgmental all season. In other news, I am feeling A LOT better today! Finally! And I found my driver’s license! It was in the car. I had already looked there once but I as on death’s door at the time and clearly didn’t do a thorough job. So glad to have found it.
Since starting this setup, I’ve almost burnt down the kitchen trying to cook a chicken post pie. My new influx of haters will be sad to know we all survived. This time. 🙂 It never fails that when it is a busy recap night, just as I’m starting setup, Banjo wants all the things. He just ate, had water, has been outside and has a brand new bed that just came today. The house is trying to burn down and the phone starts ringing. My phone isn’t really working so it’s just annoying.
Craig is coming for Madison it seems and won’t be happy until she runs off stage crying. Craig! What a terrible thing to say! Ha. Just kidding. She deserves what is coming for her. Shep talks about how Leva spent the whole season wagging her finger at everyone. And there she is in the doorway pointing her finger at Shep while denying it. It takes a WHOLE LOT for me to be on Shep’s side at a reunion. Yet, here were are. Austen is over Leva too.
Has Madison Been Juggling Major League Balls?
Everyone is on set and Andy is ready to get started. The first big blow up is between Craig and Madison. They were talking about Covid precautions and I was shoveling pot pie in my big fat pie hole and suddenly, Craig starts screaming at Madison about flying to Miami in a pandemic to fuck some former baseball players. She strongly denies it. Where was her kid in all of this? Who’s the kid’s daddy? Is he local? I have questions. Everyone seems to know that the ball player is famous and very married. Klazzy.
Craig is losing his mind. Andy has indicated that it seemed like Craig was under the influence the entire reunion. Madison only admits to DMing with the baseball player. Austen and Craig both says she was bragging about it. Pringle says, “I don’t think jerking off with someone on Facetime is cheating.” Wow even Pringle is over Madison. Guess he hit it and quit it too. Craig’s girlfriend Natalie was on Love Connection season one. Austen slept with Natalie a year before she started dating Craig. Madison is trying to destroy Craig’s relationship. Madison is awful but her dress is stunning. Craig calls Madison trash repeatedly.
It’s Shep’s Turn In The Hot Seat
Shep wrote a book. The photo above is Shep preparing to answer the question about whether or not he has been faithful to his girlfriend. I mean, come on. Of course he hasn’t. Leva has been sitting arms crossed waiting for a moment to pounce. She tells Shep and the guys they romanticize cheating. Shep is in therapy. Oh finally, Shep is going to have to answer to the horrific video he posted of him mocking a homeless person collecting cans. He’s so awful. Pringle said he called Shep the night he posted that and advised him to take it down. He sent him a documentary about people who collect cans to survive.
Shep’s response was that it was funny and that is all he cares about. Shep says he was drunk. Shep says that is not the kind of person he is. He certainly treated Madison like that.When Madison acts like she has forgiven Shep, Austen calls her out. She says they are not fucking friends so both of them need to quit acting like they are. Shep continues to rag on Austen. Madison calls Austen a muppet mouth. She really is trash. Austen goes all Maxine Waters and basically says he will be reclaiming his time later.
Craig Conover, Prince of Pillows
Andy says that after seven seasons of Shep treating Craig like shit and belittling everything he does, Craig is the one who is used their platform to the greatest success. Shep is living on another planet. He acts like he hasn’t belittled Craig and all of his life choices for years. Andy can’t believe what he is hearing. Craig says the grossed $250,000 in November. He says they just got their first million dollar order for 30,000 pillows. He’s not even sure if they have the current capacity to make that many. He plans to open a brick and mortar store in Charleston soon.
Pringle suggests that Craig sell body pillows that look like him. Brilliant idea. When can I place my order? Andy brings up that Patricia has some bitchy things to say when Craig was on HSN. Aw, sweetie, you still have your rayon muumuus with pets printed on them. Don’t be a hater dear. Craig says her pillows sell for $20 on the internet. His pillows are $58 and HSN has purchased two more collections. He says Patricia is a failure of a company. Andy tries to get him to be nice. WHY? She is not nice? Craig says he will support people until poke him. Patricia’s little lap dogs, Madison and Leva start coming for Craig.
Who Is Leva Trying To Pretend She Is Now?
Leva says the best part of being on the show was getting to know everyone. She says that even though she and Kathryn had their ups and downs, she got to know her better and there are wonderful parts of her. Really girl? You told pretty much all the guys and Kathryn to shut the fuck up while shoving your finger in their faces on every episode. You didn’t exactly make new friends. She says she enjoyed getting to know the guys better even though they don’t always get along. They are all good people and she enjoys them. What the actual fuck? All she did all season is preach and scream and tell people to shut the fuck up and poke her finger in their faces. I feel like that is why she is sitting with her arms crossed this whole time. Someone must have told her to quit pointing in everyone’s faces.
She says the worst part was there were parts of the season where she thought no one was hearing her so she was just trying to be clear, and that’s a shitty feeling. The faces on everyone else while she says this are incredible. She says it’s like “when your really trying not to be abrasive and it feels like you are knocking on a door and nobody’s home.” Again, she was BEYOND abrasive in nearly every interaction and when she wasn’t abrasive she was condescending and trying to over shout everyone. Leva says that Thomas is a good customer at her bars. That’s because he not allowed in most Charleston bars. Cameran hasn’t talked to Leva since she started filming. Cameran still talks to Shep and Austen but not to Craig and obviously not to Kathryn.
Kathryn Takes On Leva
Kathryn wants to clear up that Cameran left the show before she spread the rumors about her marriage. That is true. HOWEVER, the producer Aaron Rothman already knew that was part of the storyline, and so did Kathryn. And when Cameran found out that is when she left the show. Craig says that Kathryn did not make up the rumor. They are all acting like they don’t know why she didn’t come back. But I know. So how can they not. And Andy said she quit before filming started. That is correct and incorrect. She filmed the first time they started shooting before Leva was even part of the show. Bravo rejected the original first episode that was filmed at the end of 2019. It had different new people in it.
Haymaker was forced to recast and that is when Leva and Pringle joined. Those two may not know this. But they replaced a different group of people. The rumors about Cameran and her husband were not true and it would not surprise me if they originated from production. Perhaps production heard something around town, or they just made it up completely. Kathryn was chosen as the person to bring it up and she was more than willing to do it. Especially after Aaron met with the entire cast before filming and told them they had to bring it or the show would be cancelled. Her comes Leva screaming and preaching about spreading fake rumors while point at everyone. The guys all look like, “Thar she blows!”
Kathryn points out that she has talked shit about Kathryn all season. Leva needs a list so that she can apologize. REALLY? Then Kathryn goes off and starts waving her hands around like a damn crazy person and it reminds me of Marlo and Sheree fighting on the stairs in Africa or wherever they were and it’s giving me a headache. And there it ends
