Meet Shep Rose from Bravo's Southern Charm

William Shephard “Shep” Rose is a Charleston socialite on Bravo’s Southern Charm. Shep is known for his free-spirited, free-thinkin’ Grateful Dead following, southern hippie charm and charisma.
The 34-year-old Professional Raconteur grew up on Hilton Head Island, S.C. He attended boarding school in Virginia and went on to study at the University of Georgia. He also studied business at Vanderbilt business school.
In Southern Charm, Shep happily plays the part of court jester in this amalgam/ensemble of colorful characters that is the show. However, this season Shep grapples with the Falstaffian allusion that the joviality of a clown often masks a certain sadness and avoidance of responsibility and/or accountability. However, his acknowledgment of this looming identity shows a self-awareness that may allow him to get ahead of the curve and make the necessary adjustments in order to avoid clichéd pitfalls and double binds.
This season, we see Shep living downtown in the house he built last year, enjoying all the tomfoolery that bar ownership affords and seems to invite. Indeed, good times are had. Women, wine and song will get you every time though, and Shep is wondering if the late nights and mornings are taking their toll? Is the love of a good and honest woman the answer and salve that can bring him back from the fringe? Perhaps, but he will not compromise and settle for anything less than true love. For why settle down when you can settle up? (bar analogy).

Shep will be appearing on the Spectrum Fashion & Entertainment Stage Sunday at 1pm.

The Margarita Confessionals

•People often ask us how the idea for The Margarita Confessionals came about. We were going to try to come up with an inspiring, entrepreneurial backstory. In reality, we're just best friends who like to drink margaritas and talk about dating, relationships, our careers, and more. We figured other people might be able to relate to what we were saying as we sipped our drinks, and the podcast was born.  
•We began in 2015 as “the podcast for the jaded dater” but have since broadened our horizons. We’ve realized that while many of our listeners are out there dating, you’re also trying to achieve big things in your career, take care of your physical and mental well-being, be a good friend, and manage your connections with your family. That’s why we want to talk about anything and everything dating-related, but we also want to cover all the other, equally important areas of your life.
•We hope you enjoy The Margarita Confessionals as much as we love doing it.  We always want to hear from you, so connect with us at any time! 

A local Charlotte Podcast, these ladies have their pulse on our community and will have a feature 2 times per day on Channel 96.1!

Join The Margarita Confessionals Saturday at 1pm on the Spectrum Fashion and Entertainemnt Stage as they welcome Laurie Hernandez to the show!
