Southern Hospitality is a new Bravo reality show that will air next week. Southern Charm’s Leva Bonaparte will serve as a showrunner. Leva has been a member of Southern Charm since season 7 and will now have her own program on the network. Southern Hospitality will center on the reality star’s high-end restaurant company and its employees.
Leva, who was born in India and reared in Canada, went on to have a successful career in Charleston, South Carolina. She is married to Lamar Bonaparte, and the pair owns multiple high-end restaurants, leading to a prosperous lifestyle.
Leva Bonaparte Net Worth
Leva Bonaparte’s net worth is believed to be $3.6 million, according to Thrilling. She acquired it via her years of hospitality expertise and a joint enterprise with her husband, Lamar. The pair co-owns the Republic Development and Management Group, and the next Bravo program will center on one of their eateries. Republic Garden & Lounge is the name of the establishment.
Bourbon N’ Bubbles, 1st Place, and Mesu are among the other Charleston restaurants and pubs owned by Leva and Lamar. The 43-year-old does not stop there when it comes to generating money. According to Thrilling, she began receiving a $25,000 salary from Bravo when she joined Southern Charm as a key cast member in season 7. Leva has a young son called Lamar Jr., who was seen many times in Southern Charm season 8, which just finished. Leva will now return to Bravo with a new program called Southern Hospitality, in which she will play the boss woman. On Bravo’s website, her bio reads:
“Leva Bonaparte owns four restaurants on King Street, but every waiter in town wants to work at Republic, Charleston’s trendiest nightclub and the setting for the city’s bustling party scene.” Leva sets high standards, but she treats her employees like family – and that includes mentoring her crew of young, enthusiastic singles as they negotiate love, disagreement, makeups, breakups, and everything in between.”
It goes on to say:
“While juggling their personal lives with job obligations at the restaurant brings both blunders and problems, the stakes have never been greater for Leva as she prepares for Charleston’s busiest summer in recent memory.”
Leva will be seen heading a tight-knit group of staff people, each with their own set of difficulties and concerns. Southern Charm cast mates Craig Conover, Austen Kroll, and Naomi Olindo will all make cameos on the episode.
