The cast of Southern Charm is setting the record straight about where they grew up. After Stephen Colbert questioned the legitimacy of the cast’s southern roots on Watch What Happens Live, several cast members assured the late-night host that they are almost all from South Carolina or North Carolina.
During a recent appearance on WWHL, Colbert told host Andy Cohen that he does not watch Southern Charm because most of the cast members are not from Charleston. Cohen quickly corrected Colbert, a Charleston native, and informed him that the majority of the cast are from the area. But that didn’t convince Colbert, who maintained that he must see proof of their birth before he’ll believe it.
A few Southern Charm stars clapped back shortly after the WWHL episode aired. Kathryn Dennis shared a quick note on Twitter, assuring Colbert that her birth certificate proves she was is a Charleston native. Patricia Altschul also chimed in and tried to break it easy to Colbert that most of the cast are from the south.
“Let me put this in perspective.. the show is called #SouthernCharm not Charleston charm,” Altschul explained. “We are all from the south except @C_Conover.”

According to Bravo TV, just about all of the cast members of South Charm are from North Carolina or South Carolina. The only who isn’t is Craig Conover, who moved into the area from Delaware. That pretty much settles the controversy of where the cast members hail from, though we’re not sure Colbert is convinced. The late-night host has not responded to Dennis and Altschul’s comments on social media.
The cast of Southern Charm is currently in-between seasons. While we wait to hear how Colbert responds, Altschul recently opened up about how she keeps her body in top shape. The reality star revealed that she once tried to become a vegan, but her venture away from meat only lasted about 14 days.

Since then, Altschul has changed her diet to include plenty of meat, including a hearty lunch every day. But there are a few animals that are off the menu for Altschul. This includes rabbits, goose, and veal, all of which she considers are cruel to the animals.
And when it comes to her martinis, Patricia Altschul revealed that she doesn’t sit around all day and drink. Instead, the Southern Charm star keeps it simple and sticks to one glass of martini per meal, which isn’t too bad considering how much is seems she consumes on the show.
