Bravo’s “Southern Charm” Spin-Off “Southern Hospitality” starring Leva is here and the show is being compared to “Vanderpump Rules”!!
“Southern Hospitality follows Southern Charm resident boss-lady Leva Bonaparte as she manages Charleston’s very own ‘it’ crowd, otherwise known as her larger-than-life staff at Republic Garden & Lounge. Leva and husband Lamar own four restaurants along the city’s famous King Street, but Republic is the crown jewel of their kingdom. The hottest nightclub and backdrop for Charleston’s lively party scene, Republic is the place to go for pleasure, business or both.
For Leva’s team — a fiery group of best friends driven by their work hard/play hard mentality — working at Republic is the gold standard. They’re forced to compete for prime positions and the best tips the city’s nightlife has to offer. Leva sets the bar high, but she treats them like family, guiding this crew of young, passionate singles through love, conflict, makeups, breakups and everything in between. As the matriarch of Republic, Leva finds herself with a full plate as she strives to be the voice of reason with her unpredictable staff, but never afraid to make tough decisions that could change the dynamic of this close-knit group. While the staff balances their personal lives with work responsibilities, the stakes have never been higher for Leva who preps for Charleston’s biggest summer in recent memory.”
Leva recently shared her opinion on the comparison.
“I definitely think our business is far more Below Deck than it is Vanderpump in terms of the adrenaline,” Leva exclusively told E! News. “I’ve never been to any of the restaurants that that Vanderpump is running, but this nightclub business—not lounge—but nightclub business is a very different beast.”
The show will air every Monday on Bravo!
