Maddi Reese was just an aspiring DJ when she was hired by Leva Bonaparte in 2017. She stayed humble though her career at Republic Garden & Lounge, and now she’s managing VIP hosts at the popular restaurant and is also featured on Southern Hospitality.
This Maddi Reese Bio explores her life.
Maddi Reese On Southern Hospitality
Bravo’s Southern Hospitality came into existence thanks to Leva Bonaparte’s time on Southern Charm season 7. Handing the star her own show, Bravo not only blessed her life but also the lives of her employees including Maddi Reese working at Republic Garden & Lounge.
According to Leva, her restaurant was popular, not only because of its ambiance and name but also thanks to her larger-than-life staff who each shone in their own light. And we couldn’t agree more. The Republic’s DJ & VIP Manager, Maddi had already been working there for over 4 years, and each day felt somewhat new. Her charm and talent for pleasing the guests were second to none. Ever her co-workers were mesmerized by the lady! So, much so that Joe couldn’t resist asking her out.
Joining Maddi for the inaugural season of Southern Hospitality were her co-stars/workers Mikel Simmons, Grace Lilly, Joe Bradley, Lucía Peña, Mia Alario, Will Kulp, Emmy Sharrett, TJ Dinch, and Bradley Carter.
Besides Republic Garden & Lounge, Maddi’s employees also owned three other bars located on King Street. Their premium sports bar has gleaming reviews on Google. And their fusion restaurant Mesu has a whole lot of flare offering a menu of Mexican food and sushi. It invites guests to come and enjoy Mesu’s “bold flavors, exotic plates, and well-crafted cocktails.”
Finally, they owned Bubbles N’ Bourbon. It was also featured in an ep on Southern Hospitality — the one where Patricia Altschul was shown having her own private liquor locker there.
Guess, Maddi also had options to jump ships if she was on the good side of Leva.
Southern Hospitality premiered on November 28, 2022.
How Much Is Maddi Reese Net Worth?
Maddi Reese garnered a net worth of under $200 thousand by 2022. Reportedly, her salary as a Vip Coordinator at Republic Garden & Lounge was around $45 thousand per annum.
This Southern Hospitality has always loved music and hospitality. So, as she grew up, she started Djing and was eventually hired by Republic Garden & Lounge. Before that, she worked as a server at three other restaurants — Bourbon N’ Bubbles, O-Ku Sushi Charleston, and Rooster’s Woodfire Kitchen.
Among them, Bourbon N’ Bubbles is also owned by her current employer Leva Bonaparte.
Sadly, while growing up, Maddi also got addicted to alcohol. And after her parents bought her a breathalyzer, she switched to drugs! But fortunately, she realized that wrong track she was in and underwent four treatments before she got sober. Now, she’s practicing “enthusiastic sobriety,” which is how she can be the life of the party at Republic.
Moreover, she even worked as a Substance Abuse Counselor Volunteer for over 3 years at Insight in Charlotte, North Carolina.
As for her education, Maddi grafted from Charlotte Catholic High School in 2015 and later joined the College of Charleston for her undergraduate degree (just like Southern Charm’s Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo). There, she studied Psychology and Communication, and she graduated in 2019.
