NEW ORLEANS--Look out, New Orleans. The Crescent City is hitting the reality TV circuit in a big way. Southern Charm New Orleans, featuring News with a Twist co-host Tamica Lee, debuts at 8 p.m. Central on Bravo TV tonight!
Last night a premiere party for the cast was held at New Orleans Board of Trade.
In addition to Tamica Lee, the other stars on the reality show include Barry Smith, local businessman and Tamica’s husband; Justin Reese, a personal injury lawyer for The King Firm and sports agent who’s the son of judge and activist Dottie Reese; Jeff Charleston, a former New Orleans Saints player; his wife, Reagan Charleston, a jewelry designer; and Jon Moody, a local artist with killer abs.
“We were always as authentic as possible,” Tamica Lee says about the show. “We show the city in a positive light. And we showed internal conflicts that everyone has with their friends.”
Bravo has released a trailer for the new series. Here’s what Bravo has to say about the show:
Southern Charm New Orleans will introduce us to a whole new crew of young Louisiana socialites who always bring the glitz, glamour, and good times. Or, as New Orleans Charmer Justin Reese so perfectly puts it in the above trailer, “My circle is well-to-do, easy on the eyes, and most of all, well-connected. And though we all have our different histories and beliefs, we all manage to be a big melting pot of gumbo around here.”
But don’t let the fabulous lives of these squads fool you; they also have their secrets, which you know is going to make for a drama-filled season. In addition to the beefs, expect to see some incredible parties, fashion, food, and fun. Oh, and you’ll also notice some heated moments and even a pregnancy test featured in this season’s trailer.
