Meet Leva Bonaparte's Wild Staff in This Southern Hospitality Trailer
Get to know the VIP hosts, bartenders, servers, concierges and managers working at Republic in Charleston.
Southern Charm fans may think they know Leva Bonaparte, but this Southern Hospitality superteaser is proof that there's much more than meets the eye.
The same could be said for her employees, too. Leva and her husband Lamar own four restaurants along Charleston's famous King Street, and Republic Garden & Lounge — the backdrop for Southern Hospitality — is the crown jewel of their kingdom. There, she manages Charleston’s very own "it" crowd, otherwise known as her larger-than-life staff: DJ and VIP manager Maddi Reese, VIP host Mikel Simmons, VIP concierge Grace Lilly, VIP host Joe Bradley, VIP server Lucía Peña, hostess Mia Alario, bartender Will Kulp, VIP server Emmy Sherrett, bartender TJ Dinch, and VIP host Bradley Carter.
The fiery group of best friends are just that in this superteaser, whether they're partying it up, navigating complicated workplace relationships or just trying to make it through another shift.
Grace seems to have discovered the ultimate hack, though. "The secret for working for Leva," she says, "is dress to impress, be professional, don't f--k your co-workers."
Cue a very different sort of statement: "We're all sluts. We have to f--k. What's wrong with that?!"
Elsewhere in the sneak peek are more emotional declarations, including Mikel's: "Imagine living two lives. My family has no idea I like men."
There's plenty of other brutally honest moments, all of which you can watch in the above trailer. (Don't miss those Southern Charm cameos, either!)
Southern Hospitality premieres November 28 on Bravo.
