Southern Charm adds new cast member

Southern Charm is adding a new face to its cast, bachelor Austen Kroll will be featured in the fourth season. Confirmed via the Bravo blog Kroll will be sharing a lot of screen time with Southern Charm original Shep.

Southern Charm, for y’all that don’t know, is a weird fucking show that follows a bunch of rich white people of ‘diverse’ ages getting drunk and going too fancy parties. That’s it.  And it’s the best reality show on Bravo. I can’t hate it.

Season 4 premieres this April and Katherine Dennis is returning for the new season (yay) and it looks like there is still plenty of drama surrounding her relationship with Thomas. The new season four trailer also hints Cameron might be ready to try for a baby and Danni is a lil worst for wear.

And honestly, can’t wait.

What Vanderpump Rules could learn from Made in Chelsea.

The young, the rich, the beautiful. We all want to see them, regardless of which side of the pond we’re on, it’s as addictive as reality TV. This is why Vanderpump Rules and Made in Chelsea have both gained massive audiences and why we’re low-key obsessed with both of them and kind of hate ourselves.

The two share more similarities than differences, the cast is all ridiculously attractive, the drama never happens in real life and everything seems beautifully curated. While Vanderpump Rules edges it out when it comes to drama, Made in Chelsea wins it with pretty scenes and drink throwing.

Vanderpump Rules is still masquerading under the guise that it’s about a group of servers at Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR in the same way we were supposed to believe that Lauren Conrad was an intern at Teen Vogue. It’s just following a group of friends some of whom like each other and some don’t which might be why the drama is stagnating this season. Made in Chelsea at least admits they spend their days going around drinking and partying.

And I apparently deeply care about the quality of a random show.

Why do I care? Well, you see I’m a reality connoisseur and overall just a trash person.

This season of Vanderpump Rules is Lala Kent centric, whether you care about if Lala Kent slept with a married man or not it was the main plot point for this season. Well, the only plot point, sure Katie is getting married but the conflict isn’t there and there are only so many times you can see tea towel wedding invitations.

It needs to extend its cast and it needs to extend it quickly.

I’m not talking about dismissing the original core cast, like Made in Chelsea Vanderpump Rules has its core characters. Spencer/Jax, Stassi/Lucy, Binky/Ariana (if you disagree with these comparisons pls let me know we could probably talk for hours) They could easily be rotated in and out depending on what’s going on, or even a Mark-Francis like character who literally floats around the show making bitchy remarks.

But adding extra scenes + cast members could help liven things up, a rotating cast manages to create interweaving story lines so as soon as you get bored with one you’re instantly put in the next.

Also for a show entitled Vanderpump Rules extending the cast to include more servers would give Lisa Vanderpump more of a platform in the show.

It’s not like there isn’t enough drama to go around as we saw with the litany of Sur waitresses who have apparently slept with James one of whom is already friends with Sheena, surely they’ve got a plethora of other problems going on. It would just make things flow a little better and stop one plot point being peddled over a bunch of episodes.

Either that or pls give me the Stassi spin-off we all want or else…

Who is getting the Vanderpump Rules spinoff?

What do you call a spinoff of a spin off?

Seriously suggestions in the comments please.

Jax Taylor’s love interests and heartbreaking ways has supplied many a storyline on the BeverlyHills Housewives spin off Vanderpump Rules. He seemed almost Westworld like, stuck in his perpetual cycle of dating and breaking that was until he met Brittany.

She’s sweet, she’s from a farm she wears cute rompers to job interviews and she apparently even had a role in Katie Maloney’s wedding.

It looks like she’s changed his ways and now Jax is saying goodbye to Vanderpump rules and heading down to Kentucky to film a new reality series.

After Jax tweeted a picture of the two at Bravo Studios rumours started flying about a possible spin-off series but it seemed confirmed as Jax tweeted several pictures of himself down on the farm.

Now Vanderpump Rules is never going to win an Emmy but part of it’s addicting appeal is the crazy drama a group of friends get into so we’re assuming there is a group of Kentucky waiters somewhere ready to stir shit.

But then again can a show like Vanderpump Rules ever work without a Stassi Schroeder to deliver one liners…

Lisa Vanderpump talks returning to Housewives for a new season…

Vanderpump has definitely been the breakout star of the Housewives series, with a luxury lifestyle brand and a spinoff show. But last year was a rough one for Lisa Vanderpump on the set of Beverly Hills and many wondered whether or not she’d be returning next week. But in an interview with Adweek (media magazine) Vanderpump dished on her feelings about it…

 

Yeah, it was something we talked about. I was so beaten up last year. The audience has always stayed with me, so that indomitable support has really seen me through. But from the other women, that kind of haranguing and—I don’t like to use the word bullying because everybody uses that word and it’s so cliché—but just feeling totally persecuted by them, screaming at me, I just felt I couldn’t do it anymore, and I said that to Bravo.

The new series will feature new housewives after Yolanda’s unexpected departure after the end of last season including glamorous Dorit Kemsley, fashion designer and another British woman and potential ally to the fold as the new season starts next month.

 

Keeping up with the Kardashians stops filming

Is the reality dynasty officially over?

After the robbery in Paris Kim Kardashian has stopped filming off her smash-tv show Keeping up with the Kardashians

“Kim’s well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when production will resume,” an E! spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE Thursday.

With theories about the robbery have ranged from insurance fraud to an act of Taylor Swift revenge, the 3.2million engagement ring was stolen in a raid on her Paris hotel room during Fashion Week,

Kathryn Dennis will not be returning to Southern Charm + potential replacement

Possibly the best reality TV star to emerge in the past 12 months Kathryn Calhoun Dennis will sadly not be returning to season 4 of the Bravo hit Southern Charm.

Kathryn Dennis’ tumultuous relationship with Thomas Ravenel played out  last three seasons of the show and Dennis’ reunion argument with Landon was legendary reality TV.

Miss Dennis tweeted out

“Was excited to show the new me on #SouthernCharm but they aren’t interested. I want to thank my fans for EVERYTHING and wish #SC4 luck,”

It’s time for me to focus on my kids and myself. This was the best decision for us! No hard feelings. Good luck y’all! #southerncharm.”

The show is scheduled to start shooting pretty soon and we’re disappointed because Kathryn honestly made this show. Who is going to bring the drama now?

Reportedly the show is auditioning daughter of Chip Limehouse 20 year old Eliza Limehouse as a potential replacement for Kathryn. The it girl and polo enthusiast is apparently being tried out along with Jennifer Snowden.
