Tonight’s the night. Our charming Charmers return to the small screen at 9 p.m. for more screaming, scrapping, and crawling out windows. And if this preview is any indication, T-Rav is in fine form. 
There’s nothing more charming than a slurring host calling his guests sanctimonious, thin-skinned sluts. 

In case you missed it, the off-season has been quite dramatic too. T-Rav and Kathryn had a second baby together and named him St. Julien. He was born in November, but the couple remains split with Kathryn taking to social media on the regular to berate her baby daddy for doing what he does best.
This was after a classy Twitter war ensued on Valentine’s Day. According to a piece on Daily Mail, T-Rav is all up in it with a new gal, Nadia Bakalov, and that just burns Kathryn up. Over on Instagram, Kathryn is shilling for diet shakes and apparently receiving lots of free merch. Not a bad jobby-job if you can get it, I guess. 

As for the other Charmers? Whitney Sudler-Smith was once involved in a French-Mexican restaurant called the Generallisimo that was supposed to open on King Street this spring, but that’s no longer happening. According to a report on Eater, a Charlotte chain will open in that spot instead. Of course, that failed attempt at restaurateuring hasn’t affected his enviable life of privilege. 

In related news, his mother Pat remains fabulous, even when traveling in India. 

Despite Whitney scoffing in season 1 that he wouldn’t open a hot dog stand with him, Shep opened a hot dog-selling dive bar called the Palace Hotel, which caught fire this January and has since been closed. But that tragedy hasn’t quelled his impish spirit. You gotta love a fellow who can wear a banana hammock with such charm and grace.

Oh, and JD just launched Gentry Bourbon with many of Charmers on hand for the release party last week.  
[embed-4] Now that you’re caught up, tune in BravoTV tonight for the premiere of the third season, and then come back tomorrow to read my recap.
