Leva Bonaparte Southern Charm Reunion

The Southern Charm Season 7 reunion may have had many dramatic moments when the cameras were rolling, but as Leva Bonaparte proves, the cast was also able to let loose. The Southern Charm rookie shared a sweet and "wild" behind-the-scenes moment from reunion day that featured herself, Craig Conover, Shep Rose, and Danni Baird.

"Tonight it’s Charms gone wild," she captioned the goofy moment. "I think I have PTSD from it."

While she's more than willing to share these moments publicly, Leva spilled just enough sweet tea at the reunion about what else she knows about her cast mates. The Charleston bar and restaurant owner teased during Part 1 of the sit-down (which aired on January 28) that she has "seen all these guys in the dark" at her various hot spots around town, adding, "I won't spill the tea. That's an industry thing. They are all protected."

However, she did note that "Shep's been ushered [out of my bars]. He's always polite about leaving. He actually usually has a really long-winded explanation about what went down."

Interesting, because he looks so studious holding a copy of his book in that Instagram.

Leva also shared a glamorous photo of herself from reunion day. And, wow, did she look red hot.

It's a big week for Leva. Not only did the Southern Charm Season 7 reunion start airing (Part 2 will air on February 4), but she also celebrated her son Little's birthday. She explained at the reunion a bit about the origin of her son's name, noting it's a nickname for Lamar Alfred Bonaparte III — and that it was a super cute alternative to "Trip" or "Tre" that her husband, Lamar Bonaparte, started calling him when he was a little baby. "It stuck," she said of the nickname.

This week, Little is getting bigger as he turns 3, and his mama is celebrating him on social media. "Happy 3 baby boy! My smart, attentive, gentle, sweet, loving, clever, witty boy - You are the best thing this world has to offer Angel boy!" she wrote on Instagram. "In all my 41 years nothing makes me prouder than being YOUR MOM."

Part 2 of the Southern Charm Season 7 reunion airs on Thursday, February 4 at 8/7c. That will be followed by a special "Secrets Revealed" episode on Thursday, February 11 at 8/7c featuring never-before-seen footage from Season 7.
