No one does a rivalry better than the South - and it couldn't be truer for our Southern Charmers. Turns out that the new Savannah Charmers are not too keen on [cast_bio_link id="925906" label=""Shepard ""Shep"" Rose"][/cast_bio_link] calling their beloved hometown "Charleston's ugly step-child" in the Southern Charm Savannah' super trailer. For a refresher watch below:
Ouch. Before you feel too bad for the Savannahians, our Georgia peaches are setting the record straight in a hilarious video rebuttal (top) on why Savannah is actually the superior town. "You don't rage if you're from Charleston. You're the pretty little port city with all the influx of the Yankee money. You're not even considered Southern if you ask me," joked the owner of specialty sock collection JL the Brand [cast_bio_link id="1120348" label="Louis Oswald"]Louis Oswald[/cast_bio_link]. And while it's all in good fun, them's fightin' words.
It doesn't stop there! "You can't walk around with your drinks in Charleston, super lame...I think Charleston smells" [cast_bio_link id="1120346" label="Daniel Eichholz"]Daniel Eichholz[/cast_bio_link] mused - though his point may have been slightly mitigated as [cast_bio_link id="1120349" label="Lyle Mackenzie"]Lyle Mackenzie[/cast_bio_link] astutely points out. We'll let you watch to find out why. "Charleston doesn't have the personality or the spirit that Savannah has," [cast_bio_link id="1120344" label="Ashley Borders"]Ashley Borders[/cast_bio_link] added defending the oldest city in Georgia. But the real bone the Savannahians have to pick is, of course, with Shep.
"I wanna go on the record and let it be known..." Lyle begins. "We are not the step-child, Shepard," his girlfriend [cast_bio_link id="1120345" label="Catherine Cooper"]Catherine Cooper[/cast_bio_link] finishes. Nothing cuter than a couple tag-teaming a comeback, right? "We are better than Charleston," Lyle declared. He also quipped to his pal Daniel, "You don't like Charleston because Shep lives there."
Charmer [cast_bio_link id="1120347" label="Hannah Pearson"]Hannah Pearson[/cast_bio_link] did attempt to put a softer spin on the blow, "Savannah is Charleston's scrappy little sister, not quite as perfect, but way more fun." Maybe W. Nelson Lewis, Jr., put it best saying, "Charleston's lovely, but Savannah is just the quintessential definition of Southern Charm." Hmm, we wonder what our Charleston pals have to say about that? Ball's in your court, Shep!
