Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: The Finale

Dustin,
I hope your editors appreciate what a gem you are, or should I say a jewel? 😀 I hope you will be assigned to write recaps for the "Southern Charm" reunions. Your writing is just genius! Thanks for the serious moments, as well as the witty ones.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: The Finale

Many thanks from someone sworn to never become a slave to a cable provider for the superbly stylistic writing in "Confessions" that made it possible to "shep" (pardon the metaphor) my way through this entire salacious, semi-sweet, sordid, spiritually stirring, sublime season of Southern Charm without ever having to actually watch a single show.

Please make us all staggeringly happy by sadly announcing there will be a Season 4 and queuing up Firefall's "Cinderella" for poor Thomas.

I so much enjoyed reading your column. You are very funny and witty. I have been sending to my friends in Manhattan and Palm Springs, CA. It's been a great ride.

Dustin, I am going to miss your weekly wit and wisdom. Your "voice" lifted my spirits and had me laughing out loud with your thoughts about Southern Charm.

"...you’re only a phone call away from cheesy bread"! Ha.

I'll really miss your morning after commentaries. SC is the only reality show I watch. Think if you stopped writing about them, they may not be as interesting or less cringe worthy to watch. You're fun :)

The entire gang are a bunch of classless, tasteless, clueless knuckleheads. (I love it!)

Re: “The Sick of Stupid comedy tour takes on Southern stereotypes

"In a typical set on the Sick of Stupid tour, you'll probably hear Huff talk about the person who told him science has never done anything for anyone . . . while the two of them were sitting on an airplane."

"Cash says the point of this tour is to serve as an antithesis to shows like Blue Collar Comedy tour. 'It was wildly successful, and I respect that, but I think ***it serves to perpetuate negative Southern stereotypes,***' he says."

This is like that part of the Old Testament where one verse directly contradicts the previous one, yet it's still somehow the infallible word of God or something.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 11

I giggled reading this, and I needed that after days of covering the Wounded Warrior Games, let me tell you.
I have to admit the only reason I watch this show is because of your articles. There's gotta be a way to get you some kick-backs for this.
We all know this isn't real and the majority of these people aren't Charlestonians, much less, South Carolinians! But it's been fun to watch alongside your posts. I hope they let you keep this up next season! (That's what she/he said!)

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 11

Let me guess, you posted this from one of your homes in Spain while getting ready to dine at El Celler de Can Roca, where you'll sneak around back to smoke a j with the dishwashers because you and your trust fund keeps it real.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 11

My worries for the future of this country, in no particular order:
1. Donald Trump
2. Hillary Clinton
3. People who watch Southern Charm and believe that this could possibly be "reality". Although the ACTING is simply dreadful, its still acting and these master thespians still get paid for their stellar performances.
4. The fact that some of us are rather envious of Dustin's Beenie Weenie Casserole.
5. Me liking Jaxx's comment.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 11

Tipsy Yoda!!!!! Love it! One for the books. Hey, I admit I watch the show. And I will confess, I am one of those you allude to as being intellectual and smart, blah blah...however, I never made an excuse for watching the show. I think my point, was there is nothing wrong watching it, even if you have some brains..it's not beneath me. I guess I have no morals:) I'm a Yankee. A transplant from NYC, so I get a kick out of this show. I got so much flack when I told people in my neighborhood I watched the show. They said.... how could I watch such trash...easy..I watch some of the Housewives shows:) I even got one of my NYC girlfriends hooked on Southern Charm..she LOVES it. And a friend out in Palm Springs. We find it addicting.

No mention of Thomas' house. My NYC friend is an interior designer and we both have to say, Thomas maybe a total screw up, but boy does he have good taste in homes. That house was absolutely gorgeous. Really beautiful. Tastefully done. I wouldn't have changed a thing. Move in condition as far as I am concerned...and that is good coming from someone like myself:) But my friend and I, who discuss the show like we are a couple of shrinks, think that dinner party was staged. You need drama for these shows. Otherwise no renewal. I had thought that was the finale. Guess not. We also read that Thomas and Katherine are estranged again....she has not seen him in months and he has not given her any money..oh boy!!!!! i guess to be continued!!!!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 11

I thought that window scene was hilarious!!! Not the fact he went out the window, but the fact that he came back in... LOL!! Then they sat down and had a normal conversation. I think the two of them are so cute together, they get each other......or at least they did.
