Shep Rose from ‘Southern Charm’ Makes Last-Minute Attempt to Snag Charlize Theron as His Wedding Date

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding is only days away. But Shep Rose from Southern Charm is still holding out hope his wedding “dream date” might still agree to accompany him.

The Vanderpump Rules wedding is one of the most anticipated events for Bravo fans, but also for Rose who is hoping he can convince actress Charlize Theron to be his date.

So where did Rose get the idea to ask Theron to be his date to the wedding? And how serious is he about taking the Oscar-winning actress to the big Vanderpump Rules nuptials?

This may be where Rose got the idea

When Theron made a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller wanted to know which Bachelor contestant or Bravolebrity she’d consider dating. She seemed pained and even agreed the caller lobbed a great question her way.

She and co-guest Seth Rogen thought the new Bachelor was not in the running whatsoever. But when she tried to suggest she’d “think about it,” Rogen made this suggestion. “The politician dude from Southern Charm,” he suggested. She was adamant there was no way she’d date Thomas Ravenel.

But what about Rose? “Shep is a disaster, but he would be fun,” she pondered. Cohen suggested Craig Conover from Southern Charm, but Theron didn’t think that would work either.

So Rose took her remark as an opportunity

Rose took the comment and ran. “So i got a lovely invitation to @mrjaxtaylor and @BNCartwright ‘s wedding in a month,” he tweeted shortly after her WWHL appearance. “Who should my plus one be? @CharlizeAfrica seems like a fun date. Just watch the Oscar humblebrag. #nopressure#butseriously.”

Ariana Madix from Vanderpump Rules was quick to respond. “PLEASE (100% for selfish reasons bc i LIVE for her).” Of course, the Internet had a slew of ideas for Rose too. Several people suggested he take Tinsley Mortimer from The Real Housewives of New York City.

Others want to see Rose and Kathryn Dennis go together. During his appearance on WWHL, he revealed their first season hookup wasn’t their only one. But he also shared he really likes Dennis’ new boyfriend so she’s probably not in the running. Some people thought it would be funny if Rose brought James Kennedy from Vanderpump Rules to mess with the couple.

She still hasn’t said ‘yes’ yet

The wedding is on June 29 and even though he hasn’t locked down Theron as his date he may be dancing with Sheana Shay from Vanderpump Rules.

“I need a date! I don’t think I got a plus one,” Rose told People Now, People reports. “Scheana texted me the other day, she’s like, ‘Save me a dance at Jax’s wedding!’ I was like, ‘Okay.’”

But he’s still holding out hope for Theron. Rose jokingly mentioned he was still waiting to hear back from her on WWHL. Plus he retweeted and responded to this fan’s plea. “I’m afraid I’m the only one working on it. Nobody else seems share my zeal for arranging a date with a stunning actress. Thanks for nothing everyone!”
