Smiles, laughs and a few uncomfortable silences filled the majority of the "Southern Charm" reunion episode Monday night, when "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen sat down with the cast for an hour to rehash the best and worst moments of the season. 

Cohen came prepared with tough questions he fired with particular force at T-Rav, Shep, Whitney and Kathryn, asking about their regrets, their hurt feelings and what they might have done differently. 
What hurt Kathryn the most while filming the show? That no one believed she actually had true feelings for Thomas. (And she said she really did pee on the pregnancy stick, you guys.)

What does Whitney wish he could take back? The meaner things he said to T-Rav, although the two are still very close friends today despite Whitney's harsh words. 

Why did T-Rav always look so drunk? He's a lightweight, apparently. The man cannot handle his liquor. Now, a Senate bid on the other hand...

For a quick recap of the reunion, we compiled a list of superlatives, part summary, part end-of-season awards, because you deserve it, Charmers. Congrats on making it through Season 1! 

 

SOUTHERN CHARM REUNION SUPERLATIVES

BIGGEST SURPRISE: That Kathryn appeared on the reunion show with her post-baby weight. After giving birth a month ago, the poor girl probably hasn't had time to sleep, let alone work out. She looked almost like a different person, but not in a bad way. 

BEST DRESSED: Craig. Those red pants deserved respect. 

BEST NICKNAME FROM ANDY COHEN: Sheppy. We love Sheppy. 

FUNNIEST IMPRESSION: Andy trying out a Southern accent. He said "Y'all" like he had a bad taste in his mouth, but props for the effort. 

REASONS JENNA ISN'T PRESIDENT OF MORGAN STANLEY: "I'm really good at rolling the dice playing Craps," she said when Andy pressed her about how she gets her money. That's maybe half a step above "I invest in stuff." 

REASONS SHEP MIGHT BE YOUR DAD: While Shep may have done the right thing with Kathryn, he admitted he prefers not to use protection, assuming the girls he sleeps with are on birth control. "It feels so good, I can't stop," he said. 

He could very well have little Sheppies roaming the Earth for all we know. 

SOMETHING LINDSEY GRAHAM CAN LOOK FORWARD TO: Waterworks from T-Rav. According to the would-be Senator, "Real men cry." T-Rav almost teared up again when Andy brought up the "beverage cart girl" he almost married. It's clearly still a touchy subject.

MOST LIKELY TO BE A HYPOCRITE: Whitney. After harping on T-Rav the entire season about how inappropriate his relationship with Kathryn was, 45-year-old Whitney said he is currently dating a 21-year-old European model. The hypocrisy! At least Patricia approves...

BIGGEST CASE OF SENIORITIS: Shep. Who else? The man (and man might be a stretch, perhaps man-child is more accurate) admitted to being overeducated and undermotivated. He just wants to be a free bird, like Lynyrd Skynyrd. 

MOST IMPROVED: Kathryn. There was no immature snottiness or naivete from Kathryn tonight. She seemed calm, collected and grown-up. And she apologized for the eyelashes. All is forgiven. 

WORST MOMENT: Patricia Altschul not being there because she had the flu. 

BEST MOMENT: When it was over.
