Southern Charm – In the Cups & Better Late Than Never

By HydrangeaHussy

Whitney is going to London for the 40th birthday of a relative of Winston Churchill.  He is hoping that his girlfriend will be able to meet up with him.  He travels to Europe every few months, where his pursuits include going to the beach and pheasant hunting.  At least he admits that he sounds pretentious.

Kathryn and Thomas are decorating their new downtown house.  She sounds really happy to be living in the city again.  Thomas has enough on his plate right now, so he’s trying to keep Kathryn happy and out of his way until the campaign is over.  That seems to be the reason for buying a new house – to give Kathryn something to do.  She seems to think that they’ll be spending more time together now, though he doesn’t seem concerned with working on their relationship.  There seems to be a lack in communication.

Shep is turning 35, but Whitney is missing his birthday.  Shep wants Craig to help with the planning.  He says that Craig listens to what you have to say, but then does whatever he wants.  Sounds like Shep.  Whitney and Shep discuss how fortunate they are to be able to live however they want.  Shep doesn’t plan to still be partying and hooking up with 20 year olds when he’s Whitney’s age.  Good for Shep.

Cameran and Shep meet up to pick out a puppy for Cameran.  She’s using the dog as practice for a baby since her husband is eager to have children.  They meet a standard poodle, which is the dog her husband wants.  That one doesn’t work out.  Then they meet a three-legged dog named Ellie.  Cameran is touched by her story and wants to take Ellie home.  I’m a little partial to Ellie because my BFF has a three-legged dog.  Cameran sends a picture to her husband so she can get his approval.  While discussing relationships, Shep admits that he was in love once.  He also admits that it may be time for him to settle down with a girlfriend.

At Thomas’ office, he meets with his campaign manager and Whitney.  The campaign manager doesn’t understand his relationship with Kathryn.  She has also gotten negative feedback on Whitney’s ad.  Whitney thinks that Thomas shouldn’t try to be a serious candidtate.  The campaign manager thinks that Whitney is out of touch and that Thomas has to be serious about this.  Thomas admits that the ad wasn’t appropriate for a serious candidate.  He wants to present himself as a real person, rather than a caricature.  Whitney follows his MO by making fun of the campaign manager and being condescending.  A media consultant calls and tells Thomas that he should destroy Whitney’s ad.


Landon, Cameran, and Kathryn are borrowing jewelry to wear to Cooper’s Founder’s Bal.  Cameran says that Cooper wasn’t born into Charleston society, so he created his own Bal.  Landon understands that Kathryn is lonely because she was also married to a man who worked a lot.  They end up looking at engagement rings for Kathryn.  Oh dear.  I don’t think Thomas is ever going to marry her.  Dream on dreamweaver.  Landon advises that Kathryn doesn’t have any options as an unwed mother, other than to try to marry Thomas.  Later, we see Kathryn trying to reach Thomas so that she can set up a time to see him.  He isn’t very responsive. And then she gets a response… from his campaign manager… who says that Thomas won’t be available for three days.  Classy, Thomas.

Patricia doesn’t have grandchildren, so she has lots of pets.  It seems that she got a dog (very rare breed of dog) for Whitney, which he may not have wanted.  He now has “drop everything” to meet with the dog trainer.  Because he’s sooo busy not working.  It’s been a rough year for Patricia’s animals – she’s lost several pets and is now looking for a place to build her pet cemetery.

Kathryn visits her new neighbor, Craig.  He’s home “sick.”  He didn’t call in to work, because he doesn’t really have to go to the office at all.  Yeah, cause I know a ton of young associates who don’t have to go to the office.  They talk about Cooper’s Bal – which is advertised on Facebook.  Men are to wear black tie and women are supposed to serve as decoration.  Women can’t dance unless asked by a man.  There’s traditional and there’s overboard.  This Bal is overboard.  The topic turns to Thomas’ campaign manager, who is in Kathryn’s way.  Kathryn realizes that she has to just suck it up until after the election.  Poor Thomas isn’t getting enough sleep and isn’t prepared for his debate.  He believed that Kathryn would take care of the baby so he could focus on the campaign, just like his mother did.  I bet his parents (who were probably married) agreed on that arrangement.  Or maybe his mother was just a “better” woman than Kathryn.  It sounds like he thought a family would look good but didn’t want to put in any of the work.  When Thomas calls to tell Kathryn that he won’t be coming home, she decides to go out and have fun.

It’s Shep’s birthday party!  It is mostly women.  Craig stumbles up to Kathryn’s to go to the party.  Craig thinks that Kathryn is being taken for granted.  I have to agree.  Landon is surprised that Thomas isn’t there.  The shots begin flowing and Kathryn is baby-free for the night.  Cue her letting her hair down.  Cameran reads a poem that she wrote for Shep’s birthday.  It’s cute and entertaining.  Everything is going well, until Thomas calls.  Kathryn feels that she has made all of the effort and deserves to have some fun.  Her parents are keeping the baby, so she’s able to act her age for a night.  However, she doesn’t seem to realize how all of the partying will affect her tomorrow.  I think that Thomas forgets how young she really is.


Kathryn ended up staying the night with Jennifer and is not feeling great in the morning.  Craig is eating cereal out of a pot and Shep is ironing a shirt on his bedside table.  Kathryn doesn’t think that Thomas will be upset that she didn’t come home.  She feels like he is withdrawing from their relationship because of the campaign manager.  Kathryn feels that she is putting in a lot of work, but not getting anything in return.  She thought that she and Thomas were partners.  Silly girl.

Shep is showing his new house to his mother.  She was able to do everything when he was young and is still helping him out.  His mother is helping him decorate the new house.  She has good taster and has already started buying new furniture for him.  Shep doesn’t plan to use the kitchen much, but his mother advises to spend some effort on it for resale value.  Shep tells her that he has a date this week, but she doesn’t want to get her hopes up.  He’s looking for someone that can measure up to his mom.

Cameran and Landon meet for brunch.  Landon hasn’t found a date for the Bal, despite pressure from Cooper.  Cameran is bringing a gay friend.  We learn that Landon, Shep, and Kathryn stayed out all night.  Cameran thinks that Kathryn is a mother now and shouldn’t be staying out all night.  Landon understands that Kathryn is lonely and young, so she has some compassion for her.  The two agree that the early twenties is too young to get married.  Landon doesn’t think that Thomas and Kathryn have really made an effort yet, so she doesn’t want them to give up.


Once again, Kathryn is home alone with the baby.  She doesn’t feel that she owes anyone an apology for staying out late, especially Thomas since he didn’t come home either.  Thomas finally arrives home, exhausted from the campaign.  He isn’t upset that she needed some time to herself, but also wants her to be home to take care of his child.  Thomas hopes that things will return to normal once the campaign is over.  I’m not sure they ever established what is normal for them.  They had a baby and started the campaign immediately after meeting.

Patricia is hosting a dinner party.  The menu sounds amazing!  It will be all men, and Patricia.  She feels that some of the women in the group that bring drama, but she isn’t mentioning names.  Cough, Kathryn.  Thomas is the first to arrive, followed by one of Patricia’s friends and Cooper.  They discuss the founding of Charleston and what a large, cosmopolitan city it was.  During dinner, they discuss the Bal.  Cooper requires that all women have an escort.  Craig is taking Whitney and Shep to Delaware to see where he grew up.  Patricia begins telling a story, but Craig interrupts her.  Very rude.  Talk turns to the campaign.  Thomas explains that they are changing the tone of his ads.  Whitney questions how he is raising funds.  At this point, it’s none of Whitney’s business.  Whitney takes the opportunity to again chastise Thomas for dropping the humorous ads.  Thomas is mad that he spent so much money on ads that he can’t use.  He blames Whitney for this and starts yelling.  It gets very intense very quickly.  Patricia attempts to lighten the mood.  Thomas tells Whitney that, if Whitney wants to pay for the campaign, he can run it.  Whitney seems to think that any publicity, even negative, is good publicity.


It’s the day of Cooper’s Bal and he is busy getting ready.  He loves the tradition and history of the grand bals.  His Bal will be a celebration of Charleston’s founders.  Kathryn calls Thomas to remind him about the Bal.  I really hope he doesn’t stand her up.  Craig and Shep are getting ready at Shep’s house.  Craig is taking an old college friend and Shep is taking a girl he met in a bar.  Shep doesn’t take nearly as long to get ready as Craig.  Landon, Cameran, and Danni are getting ready at Jennifer’s house.  Landon finds it ironic that Cooper requires a date of the opposite sex, when he is gay.

As guests enter the ballroom, they are announced.  Thomas arrives without Kathryn, who is still getting ready.  He may not have stood her up, but he certainly didn’t seem interested in going with her.  He sees this as a campaign event, rather than a night out with his girlfriend.  Thomas is glad that she isn’t there yet because he has time to mingle without her.  Kathryn, meanwhile, is at home waiting for Thomas.  Way to tell your girlfriend that you’re meeting her there.  Thomas finally realizes that he need to pick Kathryn up.  Patricia doesn’t seem very impressed with the Bal, but says that Cooper has made a “start” toward a real Bal.  The group notices that Thomas is missing and learn that he left to pick up Kathryn.  Shep is having a good time with his date and thinks she may be a keeper.  Whitney approves.  Dancing commences.


This seems like a party that was held simply for the show.  Kathryn and Thomas finally arrive, two hours late.  Kathryn seems upset that they are so late.  She notes that Thomas is trying to please everyone except her.  Thomas is ready to leave, but they just got there.  They don’t seem to be having much fun.  Kathryn tries to explain that she upset Thomas left her at home, but he seems to have had a few drinks too many.  He isn’t listening at all.  Landon sees a lot of her old relationship in Thomas and Kathryn.

In the morning, Craig receives a phone call from work.  They want to know if he’s coming in.  Craig says that he’s going to work from home because he needs to rest.  He got a lot of work done last night.  So irresponsible.  He’s told that his boss would like to see him, but Craig doesn’t seem too concerned.  He agrees to meet his boss at his boss’s home office.  Akim is waiting outside when Craig arrives.  They have a glass of wine and Akim lays down the law.  He isn’t happy that Craig has been skimping on work.  He is disappointed that Craig is never at the office.  Akim sees a lot of potential in Craig, but he isn’t living up to it.  He doesn’t have a choice but to fire Craig.  Who else saw this coming?

    Good morning! 😊😊

    Good morning everyone and Cali. 😊 🌅

    • TexasTart says:

      Amazing find, Kit! As I posted on the last page, my theory for Kyle needing medical attention is a bee sting…that would explain why no one looks too concerned….although I did like Jill’s explanation, better 😉

      KIM has aged at twice the rate of everyone else! These pics were only 9 years ago!

      • kit9 says:

        I bet that’s right! A bee! I actually didn’t even recognized Kim at first. I did a double take. Kathy looks pretty much the same.

    • California35 says:

      She was! Ok, thanks. She was not in any of the pics I saw. There are LOTS of pics 😋

      • She is there a few pages in…also it you click on Kim’s name it shows names and then you click on her father’s name and there is a pic of him and you can click on Big Kathy’s name and there is a pic of her, Kyle and a lot of granddaughters.

    Went to a local green house yesterday and gots me some plants! Aromatic geraniums – lemon, chocolate and nutmeg plus one grape tomato plant. That’s a start! When I got up this morning, my house was filled with the aroma of nutmeg. Maybe I’ll keep them inside a bit longer!

    OMG Dynasty is on Pop TV 273 on DirecTV. Never heard of Pop before the daytime Emmys.

    • Supposedly Dynasty was modeled after the Davis’ – the former in-laws of Rambles

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      I am LOVING POP

      they play the BEST movies !!!!! I’ve tweeted them !

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Do you watch Schitts Creek? It’s my new fave show!! Wednesday night on POP…

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          I live for Eugene levy and Catherine Ohara but no.
          Me and the 1/2 hr comedies. 🚷

          I have to push myself to watch the Banana Fosters girls (beautiful blondes!) – they crack me up.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            It’s the best show ever-you should check it out!!

            • JumpTheShark says:

              I love Schitt’s Creek; so funny and a wonderful cast.

              • not THAT Jill says:

                Oh Thank god I’m not the only person watching! It’s so good-the writing is outstanding and Eugene Levy kills it!! He’s so is pretty awesome too!

          • Just FYI: Schitt’s Creek has no laugh track, is brilliantly written, acted, and directed. The deadpan performances are hysterical, and Daniel Levy is…indescribably brilliant. It’s ON DEMAND on my cable service, as well.

    Great blog HydrangeaHussy! Maybe all these reality wannabes are right, and after you’ve been on a reality show you can’t get a job anywhere else… I’m not buying it. Craig seems to be unwilling to grow up – good luck with that. He needs to find a Sugar Mama like Kathryn did, of course look how well that worked out for her. And another thing, as much as it would be great if Thomas stepped up and acted like a great dad – that’s never going to happen. Did she know him before? Did she not see who he was/is? I know plenty of great southern dads, that’s not what I’m saying, but NONE of them had the personality traits of TRav. So in the words of Maya Angelou, when a person shows you who they are listen to them.

    Friday Eve !!

    I want to extend my periodic thank yous to all the bloggers and posters who keep this place humming. There are several shows I don’t watch including Southern Charms, Atlanta and Million
    Dollar Listing but I do read and enjoy the blogs. I’m in awe of how well they are written. Thank you all and thank you to Veena and her compadre Tartsy for overseeing it all.

  7. So far behind, still need to read yesterday’s blogs, read the comments, lol… I was out yesterday in the heat from 10:30 till about 3 and ugh!! Having a black car does not help!! It is supposed to be hot until tomorrow…in the 90s…boo hoo!!. PBB had to have 2 root canals yesterday and then a meeting with her group for a presentation today…since it was a “town”, we call them cities, lol, over I just went shopping…so much traffic and the lights were so long….it made me wish that I was “In a bar”.. 😉 But then last night I couldn’t move off the couch, I wore a pedometer and walk over 2 miles, so my family watched Survivor, Criminal Minds and MDL with me…(Obviously the Padres had a day game)…it was funny to hear all their comments and I was trying to explain to my husband that the people that the crazy guy was talking to were dead….anyway, he said, when he first sat down that he wanted to watch “girly” shows…he wants to get in touch with his feminine side to support Bruce… his words, not mine. I told him good luck finding shoes for those boats he calls feet, ha!! He said he would borrow them from Bruce… after 34 years together we still make each other laugh.. He lasted about 4 mins on MDL…he didn’t like Ryan at all!!! I think his exact words were “I’m not watching this shit.” lol!!! But I have to say that was the most fun I have ever had watching Criminal Minds, having my husband yell at the TV was fun!! I only hear him yelling at sports events…in a bar!

    • California35 says:

      Haha you guys have fun 😛 it is funny that he tried to watch your girly shows, and cute comment about his feminine side and supporting Bruce 😊

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      You guys are so cute!! You should play some NY in the background when B is onand ask him what he thinks!!lol
      I hope Princess BB feel much better. ❤️
      No update on Prince BB?:)

  8. California35 says:

    Thanks HHussy for the recap. I seem to miss out on some scenes or so e of what these people say. Too much noise? Too much mumbling? Any ways, I did notice I had missed some of the talk while reading your blog.
    Craig – yes I saw it coming, I was surprised he had not gotten fired earlier. I was hopping he would change his ways, and understand that at this point in his career, the job is a priority. Specially without the “backup”.
    Kayheryn and Thomas – i wonder if he was not “running” things would be better. His excuses right there are that the campaign is the priority. Although, he is not even making excuses, he is making complains about Katheryn. That she is on his way, that she is not like his mom, that she should take care of the baby, bla bla. So he doesn’t even see that he is doing something wrong. In a way, yes! She could be the supportive girlfriend(?) suck it up and let him be, but I think she already is, she just gets upset about it seeing how he is treating the situation. As you said, there is no communication. Is like she needs to be there for when he needs her, and that is all. She has no needs and doesn’t deserve respect.
    I like Patricia but because of Whitney and their dislike for Katheryn, I am seeing a side of her I am not appreciating. I will focus on the good things only fir now. Her life style and her love for pets 😊
    I like Shep, Cameran and Landon. Even with their snark commentary if some times, they do all show compasion and understanding. They seem to have the foundation of the good manners, but they are also young and enjoy some gussip 😛
    The “Jackholes” are Thomas and Whitney — for now 😛

  9. In case anyone has forgotten “in a bar, in a bar, in a bar”…

    I played that part of the interview for my husband last night and for once he actually liked Dr. Obvious too.

    So tonight I get to talk about a “bar” – is that karma? They want to open up a “bar” across from our apartment building and being the president of the building I am going to go speak out about the “bar”…

  10. Powell says:

    Watching tmz. Y’all know I don’t watch dance moms. Abby is building a studio in LA. The big story is that producers reported she had a fight w/a mom and her shirt was torn off. Not true. She has a new producer of her show. The producer was trying to bring up an issue that happened S1 or 2 that was resolved. She said when they get a new producer they don’t watch the past seasons so this producer wanted to bring up an old issue and she wasn’t having it. She said she doesn’t like the show over produced. Things happen as they normally do. She knows what to say that will make a kid cry. She knows if she picks a kid but doesn’t pick another a mom is going to get emotional, get mad. It happens. They don’t need that “produced”. So to not let the producer do what they wanted she took her shirt off. They can’t tape them in their undergarments. So she took it off. She believes her doing that was then how the producer went w/she was in a fight w/a mother and her shirt was torn off.
    Harvey asked her about her lawyer speaking w/the network. The network was asking if she wanted the producer fired. She said no. She doesn’t want to be responsible for someone not being able to pay their bills. The producer’s actions on it’s own can cause that to happen. Harvey asked her if she gets along w/the producer. She said yes. She ignores the producer.

    Pindy I’m glad to see you back – how is your daughter -? Some root canals are bad I hear – the only one I ever had was like nothing.
    I don’t know. My dentist is like a magician or something.

    How hot is it by you ? Aren’t you in the VALLEY?

    I’m going to need your strong stalwart support in the eyes of my ruthless enemies when it comes to HOLLA ! 🇺🇸😣✊💪🎌 so stick with me girl !

    You and your husband sound so funny talking the tv shows. Lol


    ASH– hahahaahaaaa could you imagine that was I that called in and got through about #BethennyFatigue#. Love that girl !!!! Wish I could seek her out !!!!

    #très fatigué de Bethenny#
    ⚡️Stay strong 💊😷

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Chismosita, don’t drag Princess Pindy into this! She’s my BFF! Hehe

      I’m actually going by each episode and I may like one person and not like another. You can all call me John Kerry if you all like–flip flop. But really,all of the women are great compared to what we’ve had to endure with BH.

    • I have lived in San Diego for 15 years…but you can take a girl out of THE VALLEY but you can’t take THE VALLEY out of the girl. HOLLA has not shown me anything to not like yet…..I mean she didn’t have to say anything about Heather but I think Beth is being very rude to her…the giving the countess a car was a trolling expedition by Heather….I don’t think Beth liked that HOLLA Heather was talking about being on a show for her business acumen and Beth was not….I think it gave Beth flashbacks of “I’m up here, you’re down here”…..So far not hating anyone….I think I have built up a tolerance to Beth….or maybe those years of watching her on NY were like a vaccination… #imvaccinatedagainstthebethfatigue’ #immunityisthekey #canthatanyofthenybitchesyet

      • Laineylainey says:

        Haha I like that a vaccination. Love it. Hola has always gotten on my nerves. I was liking her better this season but then she starts with her double standard of how bethenny should be more sensitive about leaving out Kristen when Heather herself was very firm about leaving Ramona out of the London trip. So heather can be ok about inviting whomever she wants with no apologies but bethenny can’t do the same? I know she’s been through a lot with her child so I really do empathize. I want to like the lady!!! Oh and Bethenny, I still like Bethenny. It’s that vaccination. I think she’s funny. She reacted to Heather because heather was so obviously there to “school” bethenny about how hurt Kristen was. Oops I ended that sentence badly. Bethenny is no dummy, she was not ABOUT to let Holla make that scene a let’s teach Berhenny how to treat people moment. No Holla. Sit Down. This is not Ramona or Sonja.

        • I don’t love Heather, I love HOLLA though, the fact that she says it makes me roar and that she is keeping with it makes it even funnier….but I am laughing at her, not with her, lol!

          • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            I’m alone. So so so alone. It’s cold here. So cold. 😰😫❄️❄️❄️🗻

              😆 I’m not laughing at your pain but laughing at the song you chose. I love it!

            • It is so hot here today that I got ill running around, so I jumped in the pool to cool off….ugh, it is supposed to be even hotter tomorrow #toooldforthis

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          Dude —–> did you not see me yesterday 🙋🏼…. Ramona had been outwardly kind of mean and awkward TO Heather.

          What the F did Kristen do to Bethenny ? Or Dorinda ?

          Like you ….. Was never a fan of holla. Times are a changin’.
          Barry manilow turksing and caicing won’t change that for me. 😕

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        Wait —- when did holla say she was on NY for business stuff ?
        At 🍒🍒🍒🍒????

        And I’m sorry —- San Diego !!!? Dammit I forgot my sincerest apologies. My uncle lives there and I thought it never barely ever gets SUPER hot that’s why people love it.

        You valley girl.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Its Good to have her in the food arena and not a show of her giving relationship advice. This is a good match. Since she is a chef (not a cook)

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        I was going to tweet if she was a cook or a chef.

      • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

        I agree it’s much more fitting for her. When I watched her talk show I most enjoyed the food portion because she seemed more natural there.

    • California35 says:

      I will watch that… I thought that would be the type of talk show/reality show whatever that she would go on. Instead of the one she got. I loved the food segments, and always thought they were super short and rushed. So I am excited about this 😊

      Have you guys seen that Tiffani Thiessen from Save by the Bell has a cooking show? I realized it too late, but I was surprised.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        Hi Cali! I loved a Kelly Kapowski! What channel is her show on?

        • California35 says:

          See this is why i missed it, and kept missing it. Thrn forgot, then missed it, and now it is over…or one more episode. I thought it was on the food channel, but it isn’t. It id on thr cooking channel. I am sure i have it, i just never visit it. It is called Dinner at Tiffani’s.

      • Laineylainey says:

        i didn’t know about Tiffani but I saw Tia Mowry on Wendy yesterday

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Much better for her! She should’ve thought about having a cooking show than a talk show.

      • California35 says:

        Yeah!! That is what i think too 😔 oh well. I guess the opportunity was too good to pass.

    • Powell says:

      I said I want to watch this show. I love the promo. Showing food just like its a man or woman taking their clothes off. Haha. 😉

    Have you ever read something that is so poorly written that you question the authors ability to make it through the day? No? Well then -give this Brandi interview a read…..Good Lord it’s Dumb and Dumber!!!

  14. lila1star says:

    Doing a drive by howdy to the best blog ever and the best bloggers ever! My 2 day split pea soup is just about done and it is so good if I can toot my own horn a bit lol. I have not made it in ages and can not figure out in this day of tech why I still have to sort the peas! The pay off makes it all worth it–cant wait. Have a good day 🙂

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      I loved split pea soup! What else so you add??

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        I LOVE that soup too.

        And I HATE DESPISE peas. But I think it’s not those gross peas in split pea soup

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          I do it Peruvian style where you put whatever you have in it. Lol

          • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            I need a name. A chupa of some kind???
            I’m so sick of Greek food I could kill myself. But my mom is so picky she won’t eat at some Peruvian places I find.
            Plus they have to have her picarones

            • Foxymel(Mel) says:

              Are you talking about Chupe de camarones? A spicy soup with a minute egg and shrimp? Delish!
              I think your mom is probably right to not eat at some place that may not have fresh seafood but otherwise, go for it! Did you say Picarones??,!!! Best thing I’ve ever had! It’s like a donut and funnel cake had a baby and don’t forget that syrup!

              I love Greek food! I just love the souvlakis!!

      • lila1star says:

        Onion, Garlic and Pork–I love Greek food! When I went to Israel they had a McDonalds snuggled between to ancient buildings that were 900 plus years old. Strangest thing I have seen.

    I am liking Shep this season – he seems to be growing up nicely – Craig’s firing was loong overdue – he is very immature and needs to work out what he wants in life and then come up with an actual plan to get it and quickly – otherwise its back to his parents’ house for him – reality shows don’t a career make –
    Whitney – what a horrid little man – he does not wish to grow old and is fighting it in the worst possible way – he is a meaner Jax – they both approach their aging selfishly dragging their friends down with them – talk about the lost boys….

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I loved it when Shep said something about Whitney hanging in a dark closet or something like that. Whitney has a vampire-ish quality to him. Shep, Whitney and Thomas all have really great manners when in a formal setting. It’s nice to see. They all do have a southern gentleman quality to them while at the same time they act like 12 year old boys going through puberty.

      • Powell says:

        Husker you have them pegged right.

      • And there it is: “They all do have a southern gentleman quality to them while at the same time they act like 12 year old boys going through puberty.”

        My hubs described perfectly.

        Southern men…s i g h…. They will make you crazy.

      Shep is my kindred spirit but it wouldn’t work out in the stars (zodiac)and the sibling-order. I was sad.😫😪 I thought we were meant to be.
      He’s in my head all the time and it scares me. He says the same exact things I say and it’s SCARY.

      Hear that JILL—- SCARY ! 👻👻👻😹😹😹

      Whitney has severe issues. Plus I think he’s manorexic. I find him very “shaky” ….. Like pre-Parkinson’s shaky. I notice it.

      Who is his father and where is he?
      And I’m confused if Pat is truly from the south? Bc I thought she was a YANKEE from ny originally. I’m confused.
      Tamara T is having a field day with her it’s quite delicious. 🍦🍮🍝

    • Powell says:

      I haven’t been watching. Craig got fired? I haven’t read either. You mean His partying until 2am then working wasn’t impressing the boss? Oh MY!

      • You should be watching this show. It’s like NO OTHER. It actually is either real, Southern upper crust lifestyle or this cast should get Emmys in ever category possible.

        And this season is so good, every episode so far, so much so I haven’t even wanted to kill myself after a one. O_o

    Ok I knew it.

    I saw the preview — cringing and screaming all at once – for the secrets and wives whatever blah blah blah “LI Princesses PART DUHHHHHHHHHH ” and I had this feeling 👣that the salon place where one blonde says to blonde #4,5, or 7 ” I don’t want yew ta feeeyalll lefttttt owt.” Or something like that —->that salon is a day spa blah blah that opened where I was SO excited that Cindy Lou from RHNY was going to open her latest outpost of the vajazzle spa. (Which, apparently she’s kind of kicked out of these days? From what I read) I even had emailed completely bare to ask if they were indeed opening there next to soulcycle🚴🏾🚵🏼 and they told me no.
    So the new salon that’s there —-> the owner is one of the 26 dyed blondes 8thx divorced cast membahs of this show.
    Man these ladies really make law school kids know which area to specialize in ! 😳💴💴💍💞❎🔚🔚🔚🔚🔚📄📑✒️📂💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰


    Serenity NOW😤🙌🏿. Breathe in. Breathe out.

    • OMG- what is wrong with being a blonde? I’m a blonde. Super platinum. To cover the gray. Gotta cougar it up.


      Cindy stopped paying her peeps awhile ago. Then the rent, mortgage, the lasers, etc. couldn’t get suppliers to deliver. Always the death knell.

      Reopened under a different name. Not doing too well.

      She overexpanded thinking her a Bravo gig would bring in so much business…

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        Her stuff I believe got the deal to be sold in drugstores and I do see them there – like home waxing kits and stuff. They have a new name and I receive emails from them. I wonder if cindys weird brother in the DEAD MAN’s SUIT (Ramona ! LOL 😝) still works with her.
        Some article looked like a publicist put out saying yes Cindy is still involved but I doubt it.
        I wonder if Cindy learned how to care for her kids without help at all, like hold them. What a mess she was.


        All my friends are Irish and blonde or redhead or 1/2 Italian 1/2 Irish and ALL are fair. I’m the “black Irish” of the bunch though I don’t fit the true definition. I got no problem IRL just in TV land and stars’ world’s. I love when I see anyone darker being out there (not dark skinned, I’m speaking of hair- though whatever – in the future the world will resemble Bruno Mars so who kehhhh’azzzzzzzz’)
        — as a brunette it’s just annoying I’m sorry. And I’m about ….. I’m 20% gray/ white ????
        So I love any show that features nice looking brunettes and not over processed blondes. Plus it’s a joke in my house about the Greek women who dye their super dark hair blonde.
        Ie, I think Camille grammar is dark originally. Mauricio/ BH- his mom is a perfect example of who my mom and I elbow eachother and laugh at – bc it’s SOOOOOOOO off the natural tint of their color. These are the Greek ladies we chuckle at at church.

        I’m all for coloring ! Dear god I had to start at mid-20’s— but my issues run wide and deep (ice and fire here knows my problems….., relaxers et al.) —
        And now I wear my white grays as proud highlights. I don’t have wrinkles so I’m ok.

        You reallly get the hair from your dad I truly think so. (Women I mean)

        Rock your blonde self girl ! 🙎>>>🙎🏻>>>>🙎🏼>>>>>🙎🏽>>>🙎🏾

        • Well.

          Mom was a natural redhead. I’m a natural redhead. Nothing worse than gray mixed in so…Blonderexic.

          Dads a brunette. So there you go.

          And I do know what you mean. About the Greek ladies at church. And MJs blond Persian mom.The underlying skin tone and all that…

      • Powell says:

        Yeah. She totally overexpanded and during the recession. Women were cutting back on hair & nail salons and she goes and opens two or three of them. And her bro was the biz mgr. She fired him right? LOL.

    • Powell says:

      You so silly chismosa. 😄

  17. NY first look on tonight at 8:49-9 – maybe they will be “in a bar”, but probably not back at Cherry (mentioned that just for you Chismo)

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Aww barf 💀/SJ is just so OVAH! that it’s probably moved on.
      She probably made production and the boom guy and grips leave because she’s just HAD IT. 🙅🏽
      Poor poor thing !

    • California35 says:

      THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!! I don’t want to miss it. I will be watching this week’s episode tonight since i did not recorded on tuesday 😑 luckily I found it listed again for last night (midnight?), so it should be recorded this time FOR SURE! I will make sure to record the 1st look 😊

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        Cali is it on demand for you ?

        I believe for me it is ……

        • California35 says:

          Oh! it must be!! I just assumed it takes a while for it to be on demand. Next time! Its on my DVR now.

  18. not THAT Jill says:

  19. chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

    I know I’m alone in Antarctica and my love for her but she’d be great.

    Her breakdowns her personality. That makes a show watchable.

    Teresa – personality plus all the way (from swingers …. i.e. zilch)

  20. chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

    No joke I JUST read this at the hair salon.
    Took a janky shot. It reminds me of Kim.

    About having to leave “stardom”

  21. not THAT Jill says:

    Brandi is having a party tonight-she’s launching her wine.
    I heard her say this yesterday on a podcast and now Bravo has it on their site

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      So Brandi is grasping ….. In the case that Kim’s crawl 🚼🚼to Bravo works out, Brandi may be asked back also to be her “buddy” to discuss “coming clean” about being in a bar /// then the “rehab”.

    • T-Rex says:

      I guess those children and her sister who want DrunkMcDrunkyDrugAddictAlcoholicKim to get clean and sober don’t count, because then THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi would not get any more dirt on VileKyle and probably KruellaKathy during their drunken and drugged out 3am phone calls. And she wonders why DrunkMcDrunkyDrugAddictAlcoholicKim would call her TOXIC that statement above clearly defines the toxicity.

    • Powell says:

      Did ya get your invite?! 😉

  22. Orson says:

    And in other news, remember my friend who became a grandfather 3 times since last July? Well, about 2 hours ago, grandson #4 arrived. The parents are still working on a name; I suggested “Mandingo”. I feel sorry for Max, his 9 month old brother… he’s going to have to share now for the rest of his life.

  23. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Totally off topic but I was watching Hell’s. Kitchen and they had the very famous Dean McDormet (Tori Spelling’s husband) on. This asshole was drinking a glass of wine. What the hell?? The last two horrible seasons of True tori centered around his lying-cheating-drinking ass! Never watching up this crap show again!

    • Powell says:

      It wasn’t sparkling water or grape juice or did they poor it from a bottle of wine? If it’s the later then he’s an ass.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        He was seen with another blonde–his agent and he had what looked like white wine and then champagne. The press made a bigger deal about the blonde than his drinking.

  24. VV™ says:

    Brandi’s BFF and #1 cheerleader.

    Let me be clear now IF I wasn’t before. I WANT YOLANDA FOSTER FIRED FROM MY SHOW TOO. Kim, Brandi, and Yolanda should all go!

  25. Powell says:

    Remaking Poltergiest and Mad Max.

  26. Powell says:

    Just saw the first reallly cool iWatch commercial w/different people wearing different styles, colors and configurations. Very cool.

  27. So in the RHNY first look I heard Dorinda’s convo with BF again and I was right in what he was insinuating and he is lucky she didn’t cut his balls off. I don’t think that she over reacted AT ALL!!! I feel vindicated because I knew he said something creepy piggo related regarding “her baby”….I would have been worse, lol!!

  28. Sonja the queen of TMI…!!

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      So gross

      Still love her

      See I think Dorinda shows that Bethenny was BATS**t cray.

  29. HydrangeaHussy, thanks for the blog. I’m behind today, as I’ve been Ninja Gardening, but I do look forward to reading this tomorrow as Southern Charm is MY FAVORITE SHOW IN THE WORLD EVAH!

    I may have mentioned that….

  30. not THAT Jill says:

    How can anyone take her business seriously when she has these JANKY ass extensions in her hair-these are the worst I have seen!!

    • vilzvet says:

      Haha! Oh those are BAD!! Yikes.

    • Wow those extensions are bad and I am assuming she still has her janky ugly nails – yikes what a picture to wake up to, maybe I should go back to bed?

    • Powell says:

      Happy May 1st. Thks for the adorbs pic JNNTJ. *sarcasm in my voice* 😖😉

    • T-Rex says:

      Actually that is one of those wiglet type of things, it has a clear wire with hair hanging from it and hers looks like the cheap one that is not made of real hair. When I first was going through treatments and my hair was falling out in massive clumps I went to a proper wig store and they had these there, she called it “fun hair” because it was for parties and places where it was kinda dark not for every day usage. I tried one on, a good one from real hair and it looked so fake! I bought hats instead, LOL!

  31. TexasTart says:

  32. Not sure if I should put this here or on the next blog…but it’s sooo good!

    Move over Lisa Vanderpump! You’ve got competition!
