Season three of Southern Charm is in the can, and while most of the Southern Charm reunion was dramatic, as usual, Shep Rose provided some comic relief during the season, and especially at the reunion, with his story of whiffle ball and magic mushrooms. But missing from the couch was the mother of executive producer Whitney Sudler-Smith, Patricia Altschul. While Shep Rose supposed that Patricia didn't attend because Patricia didn't want to be mixed up in the fray of tawdry business, many Southern Charm fans believe that Patricia didn't want to be confronted with her behavior, or have to answer any questions.
According to the Inquisitr, though Kathryn Dennis is being attacked for failing a drug test and reportedly lying, Patricia Altschul and friends have also lied and allegedly used drugs. A former friend of Patricia Altschul, Suzanne Kent Cooke said that Patricia was run out of town after stealing family heirlooms from one of her former husbands and passing them off as her own. Patricia was in possession of Lee family antiques, and she allegedly claimed to Architectural Digest that they belonged to her own family.
