What to expect from Southern Charm Season 8 Episode 13?
The upcoming episode of Southern Charm Season 8 will see Austen and Craig being concerned about Shep’s behavior towards Taylor. Shep was criticized in a past episode when the group went to Auldbrass. There, he called his girlfriend Taylor “a f**king idol” in front of their friends.
Although Taylor forgave him for his behavior, the rest of the cast members found it abusive. In episode 12, the boys discovered that a gossip website reported that Shep was using a dating app while in a relationship with Taylor. Austen and Craig tried to convince Shep to delete the app, but the latter didn’t, stating that he was not using the app.
In a preview for episode 13, Austen was seen in tears while talking to a heartbroken Taylor. He said:
“It kind of break my heart, but when he [Shep] talks to you sometimes, he feels like there’s no consequence. Stand up for yourself.”
The clip further showed everyone going to Georgia on a trip arranged by Shep. Craig asked his girlfriend Paige DeSorbo to join him, but she refused, saying she had a job. He was later seen getting involved in a heated argument with his ex Naomi Olindo, who confronted him about some mean things he said about her during the Friendsgiving event.
Titled “St. Simon Says Fight!,” Southern Charm season 8 episode 13’s official synopsis reads:
“Shep tries to right his wrongs from Auldbrass; Austen expresses concern for Taylor's future with Shep; Craig loses his temper.”
Southern Charm Season 8 Episode 12 recap
Last week, Southern Charm male cast members had a gentlemen’s night at Patricia’s house, while the ladies went to a restaurant for a girls’ night out.
At Patricia’s, drunk Craig spilled red wine on her expensive white sofa and broke a chair. However, the influence of alcohol soon disappeared when he saw a gossip column written about Shep being on a dating app.
Meanwhile, the girls were seen talking to Taylor about Shep’s behavior. They were shocked by her response as she defended his verbal abuse. She said:
“He didn’t mean it, you know. Like I don’t care about being called a effing idiot coz I know he doesn’t mean it.”
“I have the biggest heart for him and sometimes I want to walk away and I want to be done with it. But for some reason, God has pulled on my heart to go, ‘Taylor stick with him.’”
Apart from the Taylor-Shep drama, the girls also discussed Venita snitching on Leva to Madison. The previous episode also saw foes — Naomi and Kathryn — cordially talking to each other.
Southern Charm airs new episodes every Thursday on Bravo at 9 pm ET.
