How about a little Southern comfort to warm you up on this chilly January day. The kind folks at Bravo have blessed us with the announcement of an all-new reality series, Southern Charm, revolving around the exclusive world of the upper-class in Charleston, South Carolina, and by the looks of the trailer, there’s lots of scandal and intrigue in store!
The series follows six elite singles that are seriously connected — cast member Thomas Ravenel is the former State Treasurer of South Carolina and the son of Congressman Arthur Ravenel Jr.. Other cast members include Real World: San Diego alum Cameran Eubanks (!!), Craig Conover, Jenna King, Thomas Ravenel, Shepard "Shep" Rose, and Whitney Sudler-Smith.
The cable network describes the series as, such: "Southern bachelors who suffer from ‘Peter Pan Syndrome' by refusing to settle down; and the women in their lives who challenge them to grow up." Ha! Sounds like every reality star man we’ve ever encountered. Though we’re excited to see these ladies try to reign in their fellas.
In addition to following the political careers of some of the gents, we’ll also dig into their businesses and (duh!) love lives. That’s the fun stuff, after all! Just don’t have too much fun if you plan on keeping a good image in the eyes of your old money family! As they say in the trailer: "In Charleston, you're only as good as your last garden party and one social screw-up can taint generations to come."
Southern Charm premieres Monday, March 3 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
