While Naomie snubbing Kathryn seems to have been enough to rile her up and cause her to stomp out of her own party, Kathryn didn't hold back when it came to calling Naomie names, stating that she was a 'petty little b--ch' before she stormed off. Interestingly enough, the conversation started off as tame, with Leva acting as the mediator. But the moment she turned her back, it looks like the claws came right out.
In a conversation with Decider, Naomie opened up about what went down during the Season 8 premiere, stating that in hindsight, she should have seen it coming, seeing that "Kathyrn has patterns". She even called out Kathryn on the way she fights, noting that she tended to fight dirty. "The show makes you very aware of things that you might not be aware of before. And I noticed that I didn’t like the way that I was fighting. So, I would say things to him there and then and that weren’t untrue, but the message would get lost in the delivery. So, it’s impossible to communicate with someone," Naomie explained in the interview.
"I mean, I remember that night Kathryn had been drinking a ton, and I had been drinking, too. And it’s not the time or place to be having this like super loud fight. And I think that sometimes when people know that they’re in the wrong, they kind of double down and get more aggressive. And so that’s what was happening, but it was escalating, like very quickly," she added. "She uses her body to sort of get in people’s faces. And it can be very daunting, you know? And that’s clearly like something she’s always done. But yeah, I didn’t like it" she added.
Southern Charm Season 8 airs on Thursdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
