What started as a vague rumor in the New York Social Diary back in the fall of 2012 (which Holy City Sinner posted about in February 2013), is now a reality…even if the show itself is not based on any sort of reality us peasants are familiar with.

As you are all well aware, Southern Charm, the show featuring the “small, ruling, entrenched minority” in Charleston, will debut on Monday at 10 pm on Bravo. Even before the commercials started airing, the majority of the Holy City was up-in-arms at what was sure to be a tragedy. Sure, plenty of people are excited to watch the show, but others are treating it like the car wreck you just can’t turn away from no matter how horrific it is.

It’s too early to tell how the show will go, but we do know the cast and have for some time. Thanks to some awesome sources around Charleston and FITS News, readers of this website have known about most of the folks who would be appearing (in some capacity) on the show since last year. Now that everything is official, we know a lot more, so let’s meet these Charmers…
