Shep Rose was feeling the heat during Part 2 of the Southern Charm Season 6 reunion about what is perceived as his "elitist" attitude and his usage of the term "white trash." He has allegedly called several members of the Southern Charm cast "white trash" this season and he was forced to explain his words on the couches (more on that in the After Show clip above).
And to do so, he loosely quoted the Alice Roosevelt Longworth quote, "If you haven't anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me."
He also claimed on the couches that he uses the term "white trash" when he believes he's seeing someone act in a way in which he believes they were not "raised properly."
He added, "I was raised properly I feel like. I don't always act that way." He then added that it's "just manners" when asked to define what "being raised properly" looks like.
While he actually attributed the quote to First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt during the reunion, it should be noted that the quote actually originates with Longworth. She was a writer and socialite who happened to be the daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt and his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee.
And you can bet Patricia Altschul was quick to correct Shep about this.
Below, Shep opens up more about his family and background.
