Leva Bonaparte

Southern Charm Season 7 Headshot Leva Bonaparte

Leva Bonaparte

Admittedly a bit complicated, Leva’s life is one of culturally-diverse experiences. She is Persian and was born in India, but spent her years growing up in Canada and Bolivia. She began traveling to the Deep South after her family’s multi-national business expanded into Charleston 18 years ago. It was there that she met her husband Lamar, a Charleston native with whom she shares a two-year old son. Aside from being mom and dad, she and Lamar are also business partners dominating the Charleston nightlife and hospitality scene. This season, Leva is on a quest to alter the social landscape of her adopted hometown, advocating for a “new south” that embraces her family’s varied culture and promises a brighter future. After years of mingling with the charmers in the same social circles, she does not shy away from tough conversations with her friends and unapologetically calls them out in the hope of shifting their perspectives.
