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'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.

Re: “Southern Charm Double Recap E9&10: Time to hang up the cock

Snort laughing here. Shep is the most unappealing goof. I can only hope the entire show is 100% contrived and he is trying really hard to be a douche. No one can be that cheesy... can they?

Re: “'Vaxxed' screening at the Terrace starting Friday

Just saw Vaxxed at the Terrace Theater. My impression is that it is really just an attempt to hold our elected officials' feet to the fire - they've had the classified documents and internal emails for 20 months and have not deposed anyone from the CDC to answer the charges. It has been confirmed that this Dr. William Thompson is in fact a senior CDC scientist and it has been officially confirmed that he has been granted federal whistleblower status. Legally, he can't shout from a bullhorn because he is a govt employee and therefore must be subpoenaed in order to testify and maintain his legal immunity - otherwise he could be charged for treason if he speaks out of line against the govt agency. Overall,the film was too disturbing to be entertaining, so don't go expecting to be entertained.

Re: “Critics are split on Spoleto's Little Match Girl

I hate feeling stupid. "The Little Match Girl" has ended up making me feel stupid because I simply didn't "get it". I have friends (well, at least one friend) who did like it although I attribute some of his liking it to the fact that he can speak & understand German. Everyone else I talked to was simply left out in the cold (the "stupid" cold) with me. I think if it had been about one hour 15 minutes shorter I would have liked it a lot more. It should NOT have been billed as opera. It was not an opera, at least not what I understand to be opera.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 10

It was mamzing to see the house of cards start falling apart. Cameron fired Shep (anyone could see that one wasn't going to work from the get go!)and he will now sleep more. Landon met with the prospective investors and started in with her little girl voice and Peter Pan phraseology and they laughed at her stupidity (this is another one we all knew would not work out!) She needs to get a job as a waitress. Then Landon tells Shep she loves him after Cameron tells her she should. Well there's a declaration of love! That one will never work either! On a high note Katharyn and Thomas welcomed their baby boy into the world and seemed like a happy family for the moment but we know that will not work out either! So the house of cards is starting to fall and next week should be the final blowout for the gang of losers!
