Okay, the last two weeks have been crazy busy, so I haven’t gotten to watch Southern Charm in real time. So, instead of a traditional recap, I want to RANT about Thomas, JD, & the other “Good Ol’
Let’s first start with Ashley. I have three things to say about her, so far:
- She’s trying too hard. Take that as you will…I mean it in all the ways you are thinking.
- She’s loves her camera time; does this make her an opportunist?
- No offense to Chelsea, but Ashley looks like the lovechild of Chelsea & Landon.
Now let’s move on to Thomas. I’ve long said that TRav was a narcissist and master manipulator. That opinion hasn’t changed. I’ve also claimed that he is a sociopath and probably a contributor to the #MeToo movement in Charleston; I 100% believe he got Kathryn into drugs & then used it against her. However, I want to throw something at you and see if it sticks.
Thomas is a functioning alcoholic & drug addict. I think he targets younger women to
manipulate date. And, because they are much, much younger they are eager to please, and therefore, susceptible to trying “fun new things.” Drugs. Alcohol. Sex. Any combo of these. Maybe they dabble with drugs & such in the bedroom? Then these young, jaded women get addicted to drugs & Thomas, but associate both with love because they became addicted in the bedroom. Once Thomas tires of them, he casts them aside, & then uses their addictions to either destroy their reputations or to reel them back into his web of crazy.
As much as I love Kathryn, she made a comment on last week’s episode that “she still loves Thomas.” It wasn’t past tense, y’all. She has come such a long way, and I feel like he could easily pull her back in. I think Thomas is also playing Ashley for a fool, and if she’s not careful she will wind up as Kathryn 2.0. Their date at the end of last week was proof of my theory.
JD Madison. Where do I even start? I don’t know much about him or Liz, or him & Liz. However, in my experience is that if you hang out with
Thomas trash long enough, eventually you too become trash. I find it really hard to believe that JD didn’t cheat on Liz & lose all of her trust fund on bad business deal. It now makes so much sense why Danni turned down working for Gentry Bourbon a couple seasons ago. She knew what we didn’t know yet. What happened to Craig’s money that he invested?
I personally came alive when Naomi skewered JD like the douche kabob he is. I also give praise to Kathryn for calling Austen, Whitney, & JD out for looking at the women like they were crazy for not tolerating their behavior any longer. The Good Ol’ Boys club is dying…I hope.
Word on the street is that Liz is furious with Naomi for going after JD.
Austen falls into this Douche category as well, but to what extent I’m not yet sure. He basically went after one of Chelsea’s friends & flaunted it in her face. Classic douche move.
What do y’all think of the season so far? Shep is looking down right saintly right now.
My next Southern Charm post will be on Friday.
