Greetings to all the old friends! Season 8 of Southern Charm will feature a new cast member as well as a return of a previous cast member.
A decade after its initial airing, Charleston, South Carolina, and its eccentric citizens have remained the show’s primary draws for viewers.
Only Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, and Craig Conover remain from season 7 when Cameran Eubanks stepped away from the show. After pleading guilty to assault charges in 2018, Thomas Ravenel also left the show.
After losing several big names, Southern Charm has maintained its high level of drama thanks to the inclusion of Austen Kroll and his ex-girlfriend Madison LeCroy. Fans also met John Pringle and Cameran’s best friend Leva Bonaparte in the previous season.
The performers, on the other hand, have hinted that there would be a greater change in season 8.
In late 2020, Kristin Cavallari’s bond with Craig and Austen made news, and Us Weekly’s lawyer exclusively revealed that the reality star could show up on the show.
In April 2021, Craig commented, “It’s not ruled out at all.” I’ll go if [she and her BFF Justin Anderson] are there. As far as I know, several of our pals from the last six months will show up, which will be a lot of fun.
There are no preparations for a cameo appearance by the former Laguna Beach star, Us reports.
That month, Cavallari told Us exclusively: “I can confidently say I’m never going to do Southern Charm.” “Craig is one of my favorite people. Honestly, I’m stumped. The reason he was saying that was beyond me.”
However, Craig’s girlfriend, Paige DeSorbo, and a few of their Winter House co-stars may join him for a few episodes in Charleston.
This might be the future Marvel universe, with everyone becoming pals, as Craig hinted to Us back in October 2021. In the next few months, “I think everyone who likes to watch it has some pretty interesting things to look forward to.”
Shep, Kathryn, and Craig, the original cast members, have been added to Bravo’s cast list. Season 6’s breakout star Madison, as well as newcomers John and Leva from Season 7, are both returning.
Naomie Olindo Is Back!
In September 2021the, the Us confirmed that Naomie will appear from time to time this season, following her departure from the show in 2020. An insider close to production tells Us exclusively: “The expectation is Naomie will be in the program, but not as a full-time cast member.” “On the show, her character is more of a friend.”
Will Paige DeSorbo Make an Appearance?
So, I’m in a relationship with a Southern Charm cast member. Paige tells Us in October 2021 that she and Craig will “probably” appear in public, but “we’ll see.” “Everyone in Craig’s social circle is quite kind to me.” All of the major players have been introduced to me.”
‘Winter House’ Drama?
For the Charleston-based show’s eighth season, Craig hinted that Winter House’s spinoff series could feature more men’s drama.
“It’s fun because you have Winter House, Summer House, and Southern Charm. In October 2021, the founder of Sewing Down South told Us exclusively that she was nervous but pleased to be returning. This summer, “you’ll see our dynamics from Winter House, and who knows what will happen.”
