Okay, so I kinda failed big time at blogging Southern Charm this season. I felt like I was saying the same thing every week…you know – they aren’t that charming, Craig & Naomie need to break up, Landon is awful, Shep is an old frat boy, blah, blah, blah. I basically got sick of myself & them, so I focused on The Bachelorette instead.
But, after the finale I decided to recap my thoughts of the season as whole, by individual.
I honestly thought Austen was a very “safe” addition to the cast. If he lasts another season, I think we’ll see his real personality – hopefully not the was we saw Landon’s on her second season. I get what people say, he is the younger version of Shep; they do look kinda similar & clearly have the same taste in women.
I’m back on board the Cameran Express. It doesn’t bother me that her husband isn’t a part of the show, but I do hope we get to see her mothering skills next season. I feel like she allowed herself to open up to Kathryn, & perhaps see a different side of her. However, in the same breath she bulldozed Shep & Chelsea into getting together.
Oh Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea… I like her, but there is something about her that annoys the shit out of me. I do feel like she kinda played Shep & Austen against each other because she liked being pursued – what women doesn’t? I loved that she was on #TeamKathryn as opposed to #TeamLandon. Chelsea may be a “champion” for Kathryn.
I have NEVER disliked Craig more than I did this season. I think he has a drug problem, I suspect Adderall…he has lost an astonishing amount of weight. He was angry all the time, the way he treated & spoke to Naomie was disgusting. Craig seems like a lost soul, but he’s also the worst Type A ever. Craig’s ambition is waning.
So, at the end of last season I decided I liked Jennifer after all. Well, I’m a fair weather foe because I’m back to distrusting her. I do not trust anyone so buddy buddy with Landon. I’m delighted that Ascher is a happy healthy baby, but as a 30-something woman, she leaves a lot to desire in a friend.
I’m so proud of Kathryn this season. She’s definitely not out of the woods, but she has made huge strides in her recovery. I think she handled herself well with the entire cast; although, I do still wish she could eloquently say what’s on her mind in the heat of the moment.
Ugh, nothing nice to say about Landon…except that I slightly liked her better than Craig. She’s just not a girl’s girl. She only cares about herself, & will knock out anyone in her way, especially on the way to steal your man. She’s gross & I wish this would be her last season.
I pretty much agreed with everything she said to Craig this season, but she came off as a nagging brat. Her delivery wasn’t great. However, she never “gossiped” about Craig, she was simply venting to her friends.
Whew, Shep! Talk about someone who’s a lost soul… He got a deservedly bad edit this season, which I was surprised by since he is getting his own show. Now, most of y’all know that I am ride or die for Shep, but even I was a little disenchanted with him. Mama J was not impressed at all! I do get annoyed when people say that Shep only gets “mailbox money,” which by the way, how can I get some of that? Shep does own a couple bars & a cap/t-shirt line, so I assume he makes money from that? Shep might be a bit full of himself, but I thought his analysis of Craig & Landon was spot on. His comment about the Bay of Pigs was hilarious.
Yuck! Thomas is the scum of the earth, always & forever. He fathering skills did not impress me. His human skills did not impress me either. I find him to be a vile human being. He can have Landon.
I found Whitney to be very charming this season. That is all.
What did y’all think of Season 4? Who do you love? Hate? Love to hate?
Until next season…
