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

I watch the show for the sole reason of reading these recaps. They are everything.

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

As a newbie to the series too, I gotta admit I am finding myself really starting to like Shep. He has really got a mature attitude underneath it all (he hides it well!) He planned the whole weekend in the mountains perfectly with a well thought out plan from accomodations to the menu and transportation. Really an excellent host and he knows there is a time and a place to speak your mind and times to just remain silent. Above and beyond he is magnanimous to forgive and forget everyone from Kathryn to Craig. I also do not blame Craig for telling Whitney to knock off the obnoxious commentary about Kathryn in order to soothe his bruised ego. No one stays so vehemently opposed to someone without a reason and his whining and profane objections to Kathryns' behavior is begining to sound like a broken record. Camerans' new pet project is helping Whitney to protect his bruised ego at all costs. Ridiculous! Earth to Whitney, best advice, man up to the truth and get over it!

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

I look forward to your column each Tuesday. I have to admit I watch the show at my convenience. I cannot help myself. I do not ordinarily watch "reality" except those that involve fishing. You do a wonderful job.

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

Amazing. My friend did run actually into Patricia doing a mundane errand in Charleston - grocery shopping. Well, actually she was walking around Whole Foods with her butler Michael who was dressed in an apron actually putting all the food in the cart for her, if that even counts as mudane...

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

I LOVE your writing; period, end of story. I get your humor completely. I Thank God for your very existence, I swear, because you make me laugh so hard I cry (not an easy task cause I have a weird sense of humor). You remind me of Lewis Grizzard, God Rest His Soul. I live here now, transported from NY (please don't judge me; I grew up in the Deep South, I just fell in love with a Yankee. At least I finally wrangled him back to my roots). Confession: While still in NY I tried to watch the 1st season of Southern Charm (only because I knew we were moving here; curiosity killed the cat, they say). I didn't make it through one episode. Fast Forward: I read this paper religiously and when I read your first recap I knew I HAD to give it another try (although I would never admit that to anyone). But here's the difference - I now read your recap first, then I watch the episode. I do love the local scenery but the "drama" is too funny to miss. And I never knew people had soooo many parties, with themes, no less! Keep up the good work, and I hope the City Paper knows you have a loyal audience :-)

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

I never have seen the show, and I probably never will. I just enjoy a good acrobatic writer.

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.
