This article says Whitney's cousin is engaged to actress Sophia Vergara

I didn't know that about Whitney -- although Sofia has since broken up with his cousin (Nick something) and is now engaged to Joe Manganiello from True Blood and Magic Mike. And I hate that I knew all that from memory.

Trav seems to dislike Cameran and Shep's place looks like fun and has an interesting menu of upscale bar food. Thanks for posting the links!

Wait, Whitney's cousin is that thuggy guy Vergara was engaged to? If memory serves, the former fiance has a rumored criminal past (and present). The rumor is that Vergara's relationship with Joe M. is a PR move to distance herself from the thug.

 

Every once in a while I am suspicious about the source of Whitney's and Patricia's wealth.

No twitter?

 

Some of these people like the sound of their voice a little too much so you'd think it would be a perfect fit for narcissists.

I am sure most of them have Twitter.  I saw Thomas' senator page on FB and was able to right click my way to all the others.

I easily found Shep's Twitter (@ShepRose), and scrolling down just a little found a retweet of a tweet from Charlestonion. It's a photo of a Renob t-shirt, which hilariously says under the name "It's Boner backwards". LOL! They really must print some. (And we'll hand them out on our tour bus along with T-Rav for Senate bumper stickers.)

Kathryn worked for the Lt. Governor, it said, so that may be how she already knows Jen? I think they are better friends than the show is leading us to believe.

It feels very PR bio-y especially with Thomas reducing his age but learned a tad bit more about the cast.

 

Thomas can lie about his age all he wants but in claiming to be  48 he would not have entered The Citadel in 1981 (unless he was some sort of child genius).  I'm 50 and started college in 1983.

He's like a real male version of Erica Kane from All My Children, who just kept getting younger.

 

Craig is taking some tips. He's already shaving a year off his age and he's only 26...unless he just forgot to update his bio.

This site has some interesting tidbits on some of the cast, esp Shep.

 

 

The Shep one is so funny! He must have written it himself, he's so witty and intelligent. 

 

As for the ages, I think some of the bios just haven't been updated, although I can imagine T-Rav wanting to shave a couple of years off his age.

Charleston City Paper (weekly) has tabulated and today released its Best of Charleston which covers everything from best spa to best burger and is always a fun read.  Here's the main link:

Of course the BoC wouldn't be complete without some Southern Charm recipients and Thomas heads the list with four "wins".

Best Charlestonian to Defriend:

Best Impromptu Baptism:  (And they're not talking about Kensie's!)

Shep has his own category!

I think I threw up in my mouth a little at Whitney calling himself a "bon vivant" in his bio.

Yeesh. It never ceases to amaze what a tool Whitney is. 

 

Shep's was cute! It does sound like he had a hand in writing it.

The bus is leaving next month! Load up, y'all!!

I am headed to Mt. Pleasant on Mother's Day weekend, and I'll have my camera in one hand and I'll be grabbing any local newspapers or magazines with the other. I already told my friend I plan to stalk Shep at the Palace Hotel, and I want to find Thomas' new digs on Charlotte St. She told me she has a story to tell me about Thomas, so I can't wait!

Yay, Cooks! We'll be expecting pictures. Good luck with your stalking, er, sightseeing!

Whoever the author is, she has the caption under the christening wrong. That's Danni, not Kathryn, standing next to Thomas. That appears to be the "real" christening.

Since Previously TV isn't recapping SC, I thought I'd give a shout out to both The Charleston City Paper and the Charleston Post and Courier. Both of their SC recaps are very funny and very insightful.

Can't link from my iPad. Charleston City Paper SC recaps can be found at charlestoncitypaper.com. Click the Arts + Movies tab. If a recent recap isn't listed on the menu, then click the Holy Cinema tab. Post and Courier SC recaps at postandcourier.com. Search Southern Charm.

I have no idea if these tweets with photos featuring Shep at the offices of the Post and Courier have anything to do with a future episode of SC, but he appears to be receiving some tutoring on what it's like to be a reporter.  (Wish there was a way to embed tweets here.)

Someone posted this on Shep's thread but thought I'd give heads up here, too: Shep will be on Watch What Happens Live next week. According to his Twitter he will be on Monday, 4/27 but the Bravo website had it as Tuesday. I think Shep is smarter than Bravo so I'll take Shep's word for it.

Does anyone local know if someone has capitalized on this show in the form of a "Southern Charm Tours"?? Any advertisements down there for that sort of thing? One of those horse-drawn carriages could take us around town to see the houses, the restaurants, etc.

Cooksdelight, I think we need to get down there and create one ourselves. (We would obviously need to meet with Shep regarding the happy hour at the Palace Hotel which will conclude each tour.)

I would pay to see a bunch of refined PTVers turn into a classy version of "housewives" vying for Shep's attention.  It could get ugly, but the elevated level of shade being thrown would be EPIC!    :-D

 

edited to fix Shep's name. He's no She.  :-)

I totally have been thinking Shep needs a "Shep of Love" spinoff.

Could you imagine Shep with the caliber of women that were on the VH-1 "of love" shows? How declasse! Our dignified Southern gentleman would have a case of the vapors! (Yet, I would be the first one tuning in! VH-1 was the heyday of reality TV, IMO. One contestant has a murder and subsequent suicide after going on the lam, and it shut down an entire genre/network!)

I love Shep's bio.  I'm sure he did participate in some tomfoolery, that scallywag!

 

I nearly peed myself laughing over Craig's - - has anyone here seen him "prioritizing" a work-life balance?  And he has the "ultimate goal of financial freedom by the age of 30."  How was that going to happen, again?   And who "finds meditation in diving, golfing, shooting guns, or barhopping around whatever city he might find himself in?"  Meditation in barhopping?  For realz?  Oh Craig, never change, you special little snowflake.  

 

Thomas not only avoided his prison sentence but his real age.  Nice.

 

I am so unbelievably jealous of the southerners who are going to stalk, I mean sightsee, Shep.  And Charleston, of course.  You must report back with any and all stories.  And pictures.  And requests for bail money.

My sister is going with me on this trip next week. She is as in love with Shep as the rest of us. There may be blood drawn if we find him, as to who gets to him first. :)
