No show, no money!
The cast members of Southern Charm are usually able to spend lavishly before the Christmas holiday, flush with cash from the season they just filmed, but their worlds were thrown into turmoil after the show was put on hold until 2020.
“The cast has been told that filming will start next year, which is almost six months later than they usually start,” the insider confirmed to Radar.
“This means that they won’t start receiving paychecks until cameras start rolling.”
As producers went on the hunt for fresh faces for Southern Charm, the reality show veterans were left to beg their fans to buy their products online as their salaries were delayed along with filming.
Cameran Eubanks, Patricia Altschul, Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, Austen Kroll and Craig Conover were each paid $5,000 when they headed to New York City in November to attend BravoCon, an insider confirmed to Radar exclusively.
But that was the only money rolling in from the network as filming was delayed.
Kathryn was clearly feeling the cash crunch, as she recently moved out of her $8,000 a month rented apartment after Season 6 wrapped.
While battling Thomas for custody of their children, she was busy touting her new furniture line, named “Kensie and Saint."
Eternal bachelor Shep Rose was promoting his Shep Gear line, which included $30 t-shirts and $32 baseball caps.
Wealthy Patricia Altschul, for whom money was no issue, was living her best life while the show struggled to find new cast members to replace Thomas, going on a luxurious vacation in Rome and sharing the snaps on her Instagram page.

Thomas was fired from Southern Charm after his sexual assault allegations were made public, as Radar first reported. But producers were trying to get his first cousin, Lee Ravenel, to join the show — an offer he declined.

Kathryn was locked in a lengthy legal battle with Thomas but ultimately was given 50/50 custody of her children by the judge.
Patricia jetted off to Europe as the producers tried to find new cast members to stir up the drama on Southern Charm.
Cameran Eubanks had a steady stream of promotions on her Instagram page as she hung out with the cast during her downtime.
Shep even offered a “Buy 2 Get 1 Free,” Cyber Monday deal on his Shep Gear line.
