Last night I tuned in to Bravo’s latest reality show – Southern Charm. Being from the South and having spent quite a bit of time in the low country of South Carolina, I was curious to see how it would be portrayed. I also tuned in because one of the cast members – Cameran Eubanks – used to be on the Real World San Diego and I remembered enjoying her personality. Simply put, this show is a train wreck! I’ve spent my fair share of time around entitled rich people, but this goes above just about anything I’ve ever seen. To think people act like this for the whole country to watch blows my mind! However, I realize I’m probably being too harsh; these people are certainly not alone in going on national television and acting like a bunch of idiots. That is the world of reality TV and more often than not, bad behavior equals ratings! I did enjoy seeing the scenery around Charleston and getting a peak into some of the beautiful homes there. The ladies on the show came across as much more likable and down to earth than the men. I’ll probably tune in again since I’m a bit of a reality TV junkie, but my expectations aren’t high for the show.
What about you – did anyone else watch this show last night? Is anyone out there from Charleston? If so, I’d love to hear your take on this show!
