Eliza Limehouse "has family roots in Charleston as old as the city itself," according to her official Bravotv.com profile. And as it turns out, the Southern Charm newbie's history with Cameran Eubanks also runs just as deep.
"I have known Eliza probably the longest out of anybody, for sure," Cameran recently told The Daily Dish. "I've known her for years and years. My husband [Jason Wimberly] actually taught her how to swim when she was a kid. So we've known her family forever. And to me she's always kind of been like a kid sister."
While Eliza has popped up on Southern Charm in the past, Season 6 marks the first time viewers will get to delve deeper into her life, and with that Cameran knew she wanted to keep an eye on the newbie. "So, I was very protective of her. And she's a little spitfire, you all will quickly tell," Cameran noted, revealing she even offered her some advice: "You have to kind of enter this group slowly — and you'll see how that all goes down."
From there, she revealed why she thinks Eliza makes for the perfect addition to the cast. "She is your quintessential Southern belle: comes from very old Charleston family, has the big beautiful plantation, and then the horses. And so she comes from a very well-to-do family, but at the same time she has like five jobs. So she's very independent. She is not the typical southern girl that's gonna rely on Daddy for money."
Eliza's jobs include working for her family's business, Limehouse Properties, where she manages and renovates hotels in their Charleston portfolio. The Clemson graduate also founded Snaffle Bit Bracelet Company and Plantation Candle Company. Oh, and she plays polo, and she's a model, and an animal rights advocate with an eye on politics in her future. So, like, no big deal.
"She's awesome," Cameran added. "I love her."
