Bravotv.com: Tell us about your relationship with Shep. How long have you been friends? How did you meet?
Landon Clements: Shep moved to Charleston and rented the house behind mine. (I was about 20 years old, so he would have been 22ish. We have known each other a little over a decade.) He was living with a bunch of boys that I already knew from GA, so between the two houses, we had a ton of fun. Actually one of his roommates ended up marrying one of my childhood friends. We have all remained really close over the years.
Bravotv.com: What has been the hardest part about adjusting to life back in Charleston?
LC: Honestly, there hasn't really been a hard part. That's why I came back. I have so much love and support here. The scary part was going through the divorce by myself on the other side of the country. I have never felt so alone in my life. That's why I moved to Aspen. I needed to regroup and then decided to come home. I'm so happy now, and I just got a new house this week!
They are going to talk, so let them.
Bravotv.com: What was your first impression of the group?
LC: I though they all seemed really fun. I had known Whitney from LA for years, and obviously Shep and I had been friends since school days. I'm obsessed with Patricia. She's amazing and has actually helped me a lot with realizing I don't need to worry so much about what everyone thinks of me. It's a small town--they are going to talk, so let them. You just do whatever makes you happy.
