In case you are like me and have found yourself itching for more after an episode of Bravo's reality series, Southern Charm, you are in luck. Andy Cohen has gifted us all a spinoff from the original series, which is set in South Carolina. Southern Charm: Savannah will follow another group of fancy Southern belles and Southern gentleman while they sip on some bourbon and provide us with copious amounts of drama. Of course, you're probably wondering whether we will see the same kind of high-class shenanigans that we are used to seeing on the original Southern Charm. So, how rich is the cast of Southern Charm: Savannah?

Don't you worry about these stars, because they are doing just fine. While some of them definitely come from a long line of family money, they have all made their own way in the world and seem to be reaping the financial benefits of their own hard work. This is good news, because I don't know about you, but I like to see people like Patricia Altschul sit around doing oxygen therapy treatments, wearing a crystal kaftan and beckoning their butler for another gin martini. Throw in a Founder's Ball and you are close to perfection.

Here is a little look into what kind of bank accounts the cast is working with on Southern Charm: Savannah.

Catherine Cooper

Catherine studied abroad in Austria before receiving a BA in Business Marketing from the University of Georgia. Now she is working for Dasher Management in Savannah as a Marketing Director according to her Linkedin. Salary.com claims that the average salary for that position, specifically in Georgia, hovers around $124,000.

Ashley Borders

Ashley is a tough one to estimate because she has about 400 companies and positions to her credit. According to her Linkedin, she is a freelance costume designer, set designer, and art buyer. That's not all, because she is also fashion stylist and creative director at Ashley Borders INC. Oh yeah, she is also the designer and CEO of Bedouin LLC, which is her clothing line that she received a lot of attention from the Business In Savannah website for creating. Let's just say she is doing well for herself.

Daniel Eichholz

Daniel comes from one of the oldest historical families in Savannah, Georgia. So, he likely has family money to begin with. After graduating from the University of Boulder in Colorado, he became the manager of the Eichholz Law Firm, which is the position he holds today. The Eichholz Law Firm is actually run by Daniel along with his brother as a family business. Daniel is also listed in his Bravo bio as a serial entrepreneur, so he has money coming in from a lot of different sources.

Hannah Pearson

Hannah also studied abroad in Barcelona before getting a degree in Marketing and Spanish from the University of Georgia. Now she works as a Solutions Specialistfor Old Dominion Freight. Glassdoor has the average salary for her position around $58,000.

Louis Oswald

Louis graduated Auburn University with a degree in finance and quickly got a job as a financial advisor and then as a regional bank private banker with Wells Fargo Bank. Along with that as his current position, he in a friend opened up JL The Brand, which is a luxury sock company. Glassdoor has the salary for his position at Wells Fargo can range from $52,000-$110,000 a year. Tack that onto his blossoming sock line and he's doing pretty well.

Lyle Mackenzie

Lyle secured a position at a Fortune 500 company right out of school according to his Bravo bio, but he decided it wasn't for him. Now he works in Business Development for a salon and spa equipment business. According to Glassdoor, the national average salary for someone in Business Development is around $60,000 a year.

As you can see, the cast of Southern Charm: Savannah are working hard and making good money. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of shenanigans they get into this season, starting on May 8.
