SOAPnet Launches New Southern Belle Reality TV Show

April 13, 2009 11:00 AM by Britteny Elrick


SOAPnet is starting a new reality TV series about five single twenty-something Southern Belles living in Louisville, KY. The show will chronicle their friendships, values, professional lives, and relationships according to the Southern way of life. In total there will be ten episodes of the documentary, which will debut Thursday, May 21, at 10pm. Check out the ladies…

Kellie Frey, 32: Kellie is a two-time divorcee who married into high society, and for the first time, she is going to try to stand on her own without the security of a man. Ironically, she’s decided to start a matchmaking service. Because of her two divorces, Kellie thinks she’ll be a natural, since she knows what doesn’t work in relationships. Plus, she’s the one everyone goes to for advice because she tells it like it is.

Emily Gimmel, 24: Emily is the prodigal daughter who turns her back on the riches of her family’s business to pursue a career as a TV reporter. When she’s offered her dream job, she must make the decision on whether or not to leave her friends and family behind in Kentucky.

Hadley Hartz, 26: Hadley is the girl next door who is beautiful, bubbly and fun to be around. Although she has a ton of potential, she has a history of dating the wrong kind of guys and making poor career choices. But now she’s decided it’s time to grow up, and she’s taking risks in both career and love.

Shea Johnson, 28: Shea has grown up in a wealthy family and is used to getting what she wants because she’s “daddy’s little girl.” On the outside, it seems she has it all; she acts confident, cocky and snobbish sometimes. Behind the faÃade, she’s actually just a regular girl with her own family issues. Shea has finally met someone who can give her something she’s never had — stability. She’s determined to make the wedding happen, despite the fact that she doesn’t have a ring on her finger.

Julie Smith, 34: Julie has built up walls to prevent herself from getting hurt, both romantically and professionally. It’s time for her to stop living on the sidelines and take some risks. Will a significant birthday be the catalyst to a whole new lease on life?

    Oh but Shea does have a ring. Her daddy loaned her broke bf the money so he can spend 50k on it. Remember, without daddy she wouldn’t be able to live!

    Kellie having a match making business? Not reality, but made up for reality tv. Maybe working on getting her next rich husband???

    In high school the Gimmel drove her t-top Camaro into a lake, and rumor had it she wore fake hair.
    Real high society.
