Shep has his own spin-off
There are a few Southern Charm spin-offs, but Shep Rose's spin-off, RelationShep, is all about him. RadarOnline reports that he also makes $25,000 per episode.
And other spin-offs?
It looks like other spin-offs, like Southern Charm New Orleans, fall under the same umbrella of $25,000 per episode. Jeff Charleston is a star of the series, even though his last name makes him perfect for the original show. Alas.
Shep isn't the only special case, though
Ashley Jacobs is Thomas Ravenel's girlfriend, but she's made quite an impression on Southern Charm as she feuds with Thomas' ex and baby mama, Kathryn Dennis.
And for her trouble, Ashley is paid ...
Nothing. Ashley is not paid to be on Southern Charm. With the sole exception of the reunion episode, for which she WAS paid to appear.
And speaking of the reunion ...
A reunion special does not count as a regular episode, so Southern Charm cast members are paid $60,000 as a bonus for the reunions.
Thomas Ravenel may be kissing all of this goodbye
If you add that up, it's $435,000 per season (including the reunion special bonus). But Thomas Ravenel, who is accused of sexual assault by multiple women, did not film the reunion.
