This season on “Southern Charm,” relationships old and new are tested as the women are turning the good old boys club on its head. With years of friction seemingly behind them, Kathryn and Thomas reached a custody agreement and have officially moved forward. Kathryn, now an independent woman, is marking her territory in Charleston and has high hopes of growing closer with the ladies of the group. Meanwhile, Thomas has found a new love interest, Ashley, who has relocated to the city and is shaking up the newly solid ground he and Kathryn have finally found. After years of fighting motherhood, Cameran welcomes her first child, Palmer, to the world. However, despite focusing on raising her daughter, Cameran still finds herself doling advice to the childish members of the crew. Meanwhile, Shep is fresh off his search for love that didn’t go as planned and wonders if he is cut out for a life of romance. After a contentious breakup, Craig and Naomie struggle to remain friends, realizing quickly how hard it is to move on in a small town where everyone knows your business. Despite this, Craig is determined to pinpoint what went wrong, and launch a sewing empire, so he enlists a life coach to help keep him in balance. After a recent break up, Chelsea and Austen try to maintain a friendship, even though Austen has moved on with her close friend. Is this Charleston group strong enough to weather the ever-changing dynamics, or will they crumble under the pressure?

Meet the new Charmer

Chelsea Meissner

Chelsea Meissner grew up on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina and moved to Charleston eight years ago. After starting her career in medical sales, Chelsea realized it wasn’t her passion and took a year off to travel the world to figure out her next move. Known for having a strong work ethic, she ultimately decided to become a hairstylist at a salon in Charleston and is working towards creating a hair care line. Family is one of the most important values to Chelsea, but she is in no rush to settle down and start her own. Currently single, Chelsea is enjoying her independence with her favorite companion by her side – her rescue pitbull Tyson. In her free time, she appreciates the outdoor activities Charleston has to offer such as surfing, fishing, boating and golfing.

“Southern Charm” is produced by Haymaker Productions with Aaron Rothman, Irad Eyal, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Bryan Kestner, Jason Weinberg and Jessica Chesler serving as Executive Producers.
