Kelly in New Netflix Special. How To Watch on Peacock. This season of Southern Charm has done a lot of things right. Their depiction of the pandemic was not only accurate and effective, but the Bravo series has also remained light and humorous throughout, especially when appropriate. They fairly covered the Black Lives Matter movement in Charleston over the summer and beyond, as Kathryn Dennis is called to take accountability for unfortunate messages. She is precisely the reason so many have called for this show and many others to include diversity in their cast lineups.

Leva has sure tried her hardest to pry open the eyes of the privileged white folks around her, and even Madison Simon has been a welcome face to the friend group. Intentionally or otherwise, Venita has been put in a position where she is speaking on behalf of an entire group of people — and doing a damn good job of it at that.

She said she was distraught and depressed after the incident went viral — a similar sentiment to the public statement that she made at the time. But they were bullying her, like this woman was bashing my friend Katie. So I started responding. The women became visibly horrified and the conversation turned to her white privilege and selfishness. When the monkey emoji conversation came up, the women became even more enraged. Madison said she had to fire Dennis and take a stand against her publicly as a result.

Then we see Kathryn in her room, or the room belonging to a year-old girl who is really into American Dolls and Disney Channel starlets. It might be one in the same.
