Thank goodness Kyle heeded the advice to remove the “pedestrian” (?) votive holders from the table, or Sutton would have had a FIELD DAY criticizing them. Perhaps Sutton would be more comfortable on Southern Charm with the other assholes that pretend they have manners and use them as their excuse to be mean.
Growing up in the South I have seen my fair share of Suttons in the form of mothers and mothers in law of some of my friends. In fact, my own MiL tries to pull that bullshit on me sometimes, even though she was raised in a tiny house in a poor neighborhood in Kentucky, just a few years removed from her own mother growing up in a shack with a dirt floor. She now wears full length real fur coats if the weather dips below 70 degrees, covers herself in flashy jewelry, speaks loudly in what she thinks is a posh manner, and tries to school me on all the “right” ways to do things. Little does she know my maternal grandparents were legitimately wealthy and lived in high society where manners were a big part of life, and taught to all of their grandchildren, but we were also raised how to be polite and use certain forms of etiquette without awkwardly shaming other people who didn’t. Southern women putting on airs and acting fancy as a vehicle to make digs at others is highly unattractive, no matter how much real money they might actually have.
i wish Kyle hadn’t gotten new teeth, I find their fakeness distracting. First cosmetic procedure she’s had done that I think was a miss, her real teeth were fine. Now she and Ramona both look weird with their blinding white chompers.
