The Daily Dish Southern Charm New Orleans

If You’re Excited for Southern Charm New Orleans, Just Wait ‘Til You Meet Their Dogs

OMG a scruffy rescue named BEIGNET? We are DEAD.

By Kristyn Pomranz

If you’re anything like the rest of the world, you believe that Southern Charm is one of the most educational and interesting TV shows in the history of modern television. The social classes! The love scandals! Craig Conover's quirky obsession with both sewing and his (former) cat Colonel Gizmo! What’s not to love? !

How to Watch

Catch up on Southern Charm New Orleans on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Well ... what if we told you that you’re about to get a second dose of Southern Charm, this time based in The Big Easy? Yep, Southern Charm New Orleans is just around the bend, complete with a whole new cast of Sazerac-swilling, well-mannered, and well-to-do belles and beaus. And just as importantly (more importantly?!) — their unbelievably cute pets!

The new Charmers with the largest cadre of critters are Jeff Charleston and his wife Reagan Charleston. The couple may not have procreated (yet), but in Jeff’s own words, “I LOVE OUR DOGS.” The compassionate pair has four rescue pups with the most NOLA names ever: Bacchus, Beignet, Bijou, and Puff Puff. (They also have a rescue kitty!)

Here is the whole crew together:

Meanwhile, mind-bendingly talented artist Jon Moody seems to have an Australian Shepherd. Although Jon’s only posted one picture of the pup on Instagram so far, we hope to see much, much more.

And fitness executive Barry Smith and wife Tamica Lee may not have a dog of their own, but they did give one to their daughter Rani — a Lhasa Apso rescue named Riley.

So far, it appears that lawyer Justin Reese is the only Nawlins-er without a pet in his family, but that may just be a lack of highlighting them on Instagram. As always, we will keep you posted on any and all breaking pet news about your soon-to-be-new-favorite-show’s furry cast member
