'Southern Charm': Is Leva trying to drive a wedge between Danni and Kathryn? Fans say she is 'pot stirrer'
'Leva totally gets in Danni's head about Kathryn next week. She's good,' a fan commented
'Southern Charm' is known to focus on the elite lives of Charleston socialites. But this week, the ladies, especially Leva Bonaparte, took a break from the fancy dinner parties and get togethers to shed light on a topic that needed to be addressed for a long time - Slavery.
After educating Danni Baird about Charleston's history and how Kathryn Dennis was directly involved in it. Kathryn's ancestor - John C Calhoun - supported slavery and yet has a statue of his that sits right at the centre of the Marion Square Park. The statue has been taken down but before a concrete action was taken, Leva made sure to check with Kathryn to understand how she felt about it. "I don't care, it's ugly," she responded, which became a major part of the discussion the rest of the ladies had, including Leva and Danni.
While at it, Leva also questioned Danni about being friends with Kathryn knowing that she has never returned the friendship in the way Danni had hoped and in addition, was also someone who came across as callous in matters of racism. Even though Danni was surprised to learn of Kathryn and how she reacted to the Calhoun statue being pulled down, she seemed upset about her reaching out to Leva and not her.
Kathryn came under fire not only for showing little care about the statue being taken down but also for the emoji scandal. She had sent a direct message with a monkey emoji to a black woman that read: "Dont use your minority claim, you are what is wrong with Charleston." Even then Danni could not be convinced that she needed to cancel Kathryn. Yes, she was disappointed in the way Kathryn behaved or responded to the situation but that was it.
Meanwhile, fans thought Leva was a real pot stirrer and has gotten into Danni's head. "She’s a pot stirrer I allready see it," a user commented, while another shared: "Leva totally gets in Danni's head about Kathryn next week. She's good. #SouthernCharm." "Leva gave me Regina George vibes forcing poor Dani to cancel her friendship with Kathryn... #SouthernCharm," a fan wrote, while another tweeted: "#southerncharm used to be a fun show - thanks for ruining it with Leva & #BLM and racial politics." "I’m so tired of this Leva chick schooling everyone. she’s so annoying always on a soap box #SouthernCharm," a viewer expressed.
