Southern Hospitality’s Joe Bradley Wants a Career Like Leva Bonaparte’s
The VIP host is Southern through and through — and he has feelings for another cast member.
The staff members at Leva Bonaparte’s popular Charleston nightclub, Republic Garden & Lounge, will soon be revealing their work lives and their personal relationships on Southern Hospitality. Based on a trailer for the new series, it looks like problems actually do arise when friends work together.
VIP host Joe Bradley is one of the Republic employees who will appear on the debut season, and his love life could be a major topic of discussion. Find out more about Joe below.
The Southern Hospitality cast member comes from a “successful family” in Atlanta. Joe has a sister named Caroline, and a brother named Mike. He has shared photos with his siblings on his public Instagram feed over the years.
Joe attended the University of Michigan, where he studied art and design, as well as communications. According to his Southern Hospitality bio, Joe ultimately dropped out of college.
His work life
Before he began working for Leva, Joe had a series of entry-level jobs. Per his LinkedIn profile, he also currently works as a sales representative for Bradley, a luxury furniture and textiles brand.
At Republic, Joe is a VIP host — and he eventually wants to be a restaurateur entrepreneur like Leva and her husband, Lamar Bonaparte.
His personal life
Joe has big dreams at Republic, but will his romantic life get in the way of his success? In the Southern Hospitality trailer, Joe tells fellow VIP host/DJ Madison “Maddi” Reese that he’s “had feelings for [her] this whole time,” but she’s also exploring the possibility of getting back together with her “cheating ex-boyfriend.”
It looks like Maddi’s ex confronts Joe in the teaser as well.
“I’m her boyfriend,” a guy tells Joe in the clip. “You need to create a boundary, [and] if you cross it again, we’re gonna have an actual problem.”
Before the teaser trailer ends, Maddi also tells Joe to “be a man,” while Mikel Simmons throws a drink in his face.
You can catch Joe when Southern Hospitality premieres on November 28.
