See Which Southern Charm Stars Are Allegedly Banking $480K For The New Season!
Although the direction of the upcoming season is uncertain, it has been confirmed that producers will start filming in January. Despite the lackluster ratings of last season, these four castmates just got huge raises for their role on the show.
According to a new report by Radar Online, Cameran Eubanks, Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, and Craig Conover all got an $80k payday raise bringing their total earnings for the season to $480k a piece!
Austen Kroll will be making a whopping $80k for the 16-episode installment and newcomer Eliza Limehouse will be banking $40k. It's currently unknown how much Naomie Olindo, Danni Baird, Chelsea Meissner, and Madison LeCroy will be paid if they choose to return.
This is allegedly the season that will prove if the Southern Charm cast can really stand on their own without drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn along with resident villain Ashley Jacobs.
Producers are allegedly scrambling to find an interesting storyline and have even reached out to Ravenel's relatives to try to get an inside look at Thomas' life after Bravo.
'Southern Charm producers are desperate. They reached out to some of Thomas’ relatives about being on the next season. Thomas’ first cousin, Lee Ravenel, was approached to be on the show, but he declined. They want stories about Thomas and his children from a family point of view. But this seemed like a stretch and people are saying no.'
Shep took the title of the bad boy last season with his demeaning comments about Madison and Austen's relationship. His character was also questioned offline when he made fun of a homeless woman on social media so it wouldn't be a surprise if he decided to make the upcoming installment his 'redemption' story.
Meanwhile, Austen and Madison couldn't care less what his friends think of their relationship because they're back together. Craig is now running a successful pillow empire.
Whitney Sudler-Smith also serves as an executive producer to the show so he really doesn't need a storyline as viewers could tell from the lack of his presence in the last season.
