How much is the ‘Southern Charm’ cast worth?
When Southern Charm first appeared on our TV screens, we wondered what the heck the cast did to earn their money (spoiler: the answer was mostly “inherited it”). Now the answer’s more clear – they’re TV stars. But, there are some details about their financial lives that would surprise you. Find out how much they're actually worth.

Chleb Ravenell’s net worth: $200 000
Chleb Ravenell and Kathryn Dennis have been lovebirds since July 2020 when they were first spotted together. Their relationship came into question after Dennis was called out for racist messages that were revealed on the show, but years later, the couple are still going strong. Ravenell works as a creative director for a clothing company, Kenneth Beatrice Clothing.

Taylor Ann-Green’s net worth: $250 000
Surprise, surprise — Shep Rose and his girlfriend Taylor are still going strong. Something about this career woman must have Shep hooked. She's an account executive at Associated Staffing and as a clinical assistant for Kelley Orthodontics. She's clearly no stranger to hard work — unfortunately, the same can't be said for her man.

Olivia Flower’s net worth: $500 000
Austen Kroll's latest love interest joins the show after a series of hookups we've witnessed Kroll run through on Winter House. Flowers works in the entertainment industry, starting out as a production assistant for Paramount Pictures. After a few years in the business, she worked her way up to being a production manager and even has acting credits listed on IMDB.

Venita Aspen’s net worth: $500 000
When it comes to earning money, Aspen gets into her bag. She's a full-time model, influencer and stylist, having created her company The Aspen Agency. Despite her modelling background, she went to culinary school and spent time as as fashion and food blogger and pastry chef. Now, she can add reality TV star to her resume.

Craig Conover net worth: $400,000
So much has changed with Craig in the course of a few years — he went from unmotivated almost-lawyer to thriving pillow mogul. His pillow line ‘Sewing Down South’ has taken off, so much so that apparently he makes more with his line than he would have as an attorney. It seems his business was a wise choice considering he passed the bar but never actually practiced law. Now he’s on HSN and throws ‘Pillow Parties’ where he signs pillows from fans who buy from his line of home goods.

Naomie Olindo net worth: $500,000
Though it’s unclear what Naomie currently does for a living, she does have experience in real estate as she was once listed as an agent on a real estate firm’s website. As we saw in season five, her family is involved in the restaurant business, both in France and now in Charleston. Though she’s not listed as an owner, she has been heavily involved in the opening of the restaurant. Naomie has a fashion line called L’ABEYE (french for ‘honey bee’), which she launched through the entrepreneurial spirit she says she got from her father. She’s also part of a business, 80x20, that teaches the importance of balancing all aspects of life from exercise to work.

Kathryn Dennis net worth: $800,000
Kathryn has one of the highest net worths of the Southern Charm cast, which might make you scratch your head. We haven't seen Kathryn do much in the realm of work on the show. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kathryn’s worth $800,000. This one seems a touch high, considering Kathryn’s sole income pre-SC was some small market modelling. And at one point, she was spotted working at a local department store in Charleston. Would she be doing that if she had more than half a million to her name? Regardless, she was fired in May 2020 for allegedly making racist comments toward a woman named Mika Gadsden. The only other explanation is her social media brand deals and her Southern Charm salary — each cast member is said to make around $25,000 per episode.

Austen Kroll net worth: $1 million
Information on Austen Kroll’s net worth seems to be scarce, but from what is known, it doesn’t seem he’s on the same financial footing as his castmates. In 2014, he was a Territory Sales Manager for Red Hare Brewing Company which has a national average salary of $64 000. In season five, Austen was “fun-employed,” immersing himself in beer tasting and forging ahead with a craft beer of his own. Kroll was most likely added to the cast because he comes from an affluent southern family — his dad used to work in the FBI and his mom was in software sales. It’s known that his parents own a second home off the coast of Charleston, so perhaps his wealth is inherited. Who knows — he might hit it big with his new craft beer!

Madison LeCroy net worth: $1.5 million
From the show, Madison seems like quite the go-getter. She’s one of the most sought-after hair stylists in Charleston, and shows no signs of stopping. Her motivation seems to be her son Hudson who she raises as a single mother. Her potential and work ethic is why Patricia Altushul has taken her under her wing and is pushing her towards a wealthy suitor.

Marcie Hobbs’ net worth: $2 million
Marcie Hobbs comes to the cast by way of older cousin Shep Rose. She makes her money primarily has a realtor, having worked at The Boulevard Company since 2018. Hobbs also works in public relations as an Events, PR and Marketing Specialist, according to her LinkedIn.

Whitney Sudler-Smith net worth: $2 million
Whitney’s no longer a main cast member on SC, but he is the creator of the show and served as an executive producer until 2016. He was also involved behind the scenes on Southern Charm: New Orleans. But, like Thomas, Whitney’s $2 million net worth, per Celebrity Net Worth, is legacy cash – his mom Patricia was married to a Wall Street mogul, Arthur Altschul.

Leva Boneparte: $3 million
Leva is one part of Charleston’s nightlife power couple. She and her husband Lamar Bonaparte own several high-end restaurants, bars and lounges in the city including Republic Garden & Lounge and Bourbon and Bubbles. The couple also own Republic Development Management Group which aims to create global destinations for high-end nightlife and culinary experiences. Their hustle and business savvy put them higher up on this list.
14 / 15
Shep Rose net worth: $4 million
Celebrity Net Worth pegs Shep’s net worth at $4 million — impressive for a playboy who supposedly doesn't have his life together. Shep comes from family money like Thomas, so it stands to reason he’s worth more than Craig. He’s never really worked from what we’ve seen, but he’s invested in bars and real estate, so our bet is he’s got more than that in the bank… or at least coming his way via inheritance eventually.

Patricia Altschul net worth: $50 million
The richest Charmer of them all? None other than Whitney’s mom, Patricia Altschul. Celebrity Net Worth estimates her fortune at $50 million. Patricia’s late husband Arthur was a partner at Goldman Sachs Group and for years the couple were New York City socialites. When she moved down to Charleston, she picked up her historic home for a whopping $4.8 million. But we can’t discount Patricia’s business savvy. In October 2020, she launched her home decor line (which you can find on HSN), and a few years earlier published her book The Art of Southern Charm.
