The second part of the Southern Charm Season 8 reunion aired on Thursday, featuring an emotional segment between ex-couple Shep Rose and Taylor Ann Green.

Taylor was seen breaking down while questioning Shep about his actions. She called him out for sleeping with other women in Texas within just two months of their breakup. Amid the accusations, host Andy Cohen was seen defending Shep’s behavior, leaving fans furious.

When Taylor asked Shep why he hooked up with other women just a few months after they split, Andy said:

“He is single now.”

He further asked Taylor why she was hurt by Shep’s behavior when she mentioned that she was still in love with him.

Fans didn’t appreciate Andy taking Shep’s side

Taylor Ann Green was seen calling out Shep Rose for his behavior throughout the Southern Charm Season 8 reunion. She pointed out that he couldn’t wait two months after their split to sleep around with women. She mentioned multiple inappropriate analogies, questioning Shep’s character.

While Taylor was crying and slamming Shep, host Andy Cohen was seen justifying Shep’s behavior. Not only did he defend the Southern Charm star by calling him “single,” but also gave him a hug backstage and mentioned that he felt bad for Shep.

Fans didn’t appreciate Andy’s behavior and compared him to Shep. This is what some of the Twitter users had to say:

In the latest reunion episode, Taylor called out Shep for not working on himself, even after claiming to do so. She brought his parents into the conversation by stating that they didn’t hold Shep accountable for his rude behavior.

Taylor mentioned that he spoke to his parents in the same manner he spoke to her in the group’s Auldbrass’ trip. There, Shep shouted at Taylor, calling her a “f**king idiot,” in front of their friends. In the reunion episode, Andy asked Taylor whether her parents hated Shep after watching the particular episode. She responded by saying that her mom and dad love Shep even if they’re not together.

The former couple confessed that they still love each other. However, Taylor looked frustrated and furious whenever any topic related to Shep was brought into discussion.
