Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 8

I cannot thank you enough for writing this column. It means I don't have to waste my time actually watching the show, unless I happen to be extremely bored and pick it up On Demand, but frankly there are better shows and better things to do than to be caught up in that drama. I can't wait for next week's recap...keep up the great work, you're are truly entertaining.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 7

Kathryn has a NANNY-us mothers that did ALL our own work and raising kids, having a JOB and PAYING a reliable babysitter for a night out if family couldn't sit should be VERY proud of our accomplishments. I for one am!!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 7

Kathryn has a NANNY for gosh sakes-many women raise 2 children without the "conveniences" of perks that we all have to work for.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 7

I only caught up with this show this season so I am still getting to know the characters and storylines. Basically Kathryn is the lynchpin to the whole show and with good reason as she is beautiful and volatile (think Erica Kane on All My Children) and the story waxes and wanes around the others who are all professional losers. Thomas is a has been political hack, Shep refuses to grow up at nearly 40, Craig wants to be all grown up but doesn't know how, Landon is an airhead little girl who wants to be a magazine magnate someday when she grows up and Whitney lives with his mother. Lets not forget Cameron who has made raising Shep her pet project. Yet this crew of lost causes point a finger at Kathryn to make themselves feel good. They distance themselves from the only person who is dealing with the harsh reality of life (raising children on her own) as a means of escapism from the fact that she is forging forward as the rest of them are frozen fixtures that merely exist in the staus quo.

Aha! I knew free outdoor events and Spoleto were not mutually exclusive. This is great.

"In other words, Craig ain’t pass the Bar, but he knows a little bit, enough so you won’t accompany him on this trip."

I have to admit I inherently matched the cadence starting at "Bar" - nicely done.

Re: “Who is Southern Charm's Whitney Sudler-Smith?

Omg. People please...you are all taking this stuff way too seriously. This is just another example of mindless scripted reality tv. Don't invest yourselves in these people's made up lives. They are setting any examples to be envied or admired. Just thank your lucky stars that your lives are not as screwed up as these characters. These are not the true Charleston society families. They would not be caught dead on a reality tv show. These people are attention seeking posers with just enough flaws (and unpaid bills) to make them"good tv". Stop encouraging Whitney Sudner-Smith. He is neither talented, nor smart, nor witty, nor interesting, and needs to spend many more years as someone else's assistant before striking out on his own. Thomas is a privileged manchild idiot with the sex appeal of a drunken frat boy on qualudes. Watching him try to pick up women is actually painful. Shep is just not all that and who sleeps until noon anyway? Craig, no woman wants to compete for being the better dresser. Langdon or whatever your name is - are you really that stupid? Cameron - are you really without faults of your own? And Katherine - well, Katherine, for the love of God girl, you are young, but did no one ever encourage you to get an education before you decided to start having all those babies simply because you could? This is not a true portrayal of the south but another self indulgent project by Whitney.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 7

I refuse to watch this show, mostly out of fear that it will ruin this column for me. From turtles all the way down to 99 problems but a license to practice law ain't one, this is good stuff. Can't hardly imagine the show holds a candle.
