Kathryn Dennis Celebrates Her Birthday With Patricia Altschul & Shep Rose

A lot can change in one season of a reality TV show. Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul did not get along at all for the first four seasons of the show. Now, Kathryn is celebrating her birthday with Patricia at a surprise party.

Did Patricia throw the surprise party? That is unclear, but if that’s the case then these two have really come a long way. Shep Rose was also on hand for the festivities. After Kathryn revealed their clandestine hookups on Season 5, there are plenty of viewers rooting for them to date. Was he there as a friend? Or as something more?

Patricia Altschul Stands Firm Calling Ashley Jacobs A Gold Digger

The Southern Charm cast has made it known that they are not big fans of Ashley Jacobs since she joined the show to film alongside boyfriend Thomas Ravenel. Ashley has slammed the mother of Thomas’ children, Kathryn Dennis, and even hit on other men in the cast. Another person who is no fan of Ashley’s is Whitney Sudler-Smith‘s mother, Patricia Altschul, who feels the newcomer is nothing but a gold digging famewhore.

In a new interview, the Southern Charm matriarch shared, “My new favorite word is ‘famewhore,’ I love to use it whenever possible, so… famewhore! Famewhore! Famewhore!”

Southern Charm Reunion Recap:

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m pretty sad that Southern Charm has ended. What an amazing season! We witnessed the complete redemption of Kathryn Dennis, the softening of Shep Rose, the badassery of Chelsea Meissner, and the birth of Cameran Eubanks’ daughter Palmer. Craig Conover whined sewed, Naomie Olindo tracked him on her phone, Austen Kroll brewed, and Thomas Ravenel unraveled with the assistance of an equally unhinged romantic entanglement. It was about as perfect as television can get!

Southern Charm Reunion Recap: Get (Con)Over It, Craig!

To say I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the Southern Charm reunion would be a gigantic understatement. I’m even more excited to be watching it in Charleston with my trusty college roommates, Kristen and Haze. They are just as die-hard fans as I am!

The Charmers are getting ready for what is sure to be a draining day. Austen Kroll and Shep Rose are having a sausage fest as Cameran Eubanks preps to watch the smackdown between Kathryn Dennis and the absent Thomas Ravenel’s money spender. As usual, the cast is more casual than other reunions, with the exception of Kathryn who is highlighting her new boobs in a bedazzled gown. Chelsea Meissner looks stunning. Andy Cohen welcomes the crew, hitting on Craig Conover and Shep while highlighting Naomie Olindo sitting on an opposite couch from her ex. He is excited that Austen has brought him beer and Craig may have a few pillows for the clubhouse. Andy reads a statement from T-Rav’s attorneys which asserts he is cooperating with authorities during his ongoing investigation.  Thomas believes he will be vindicated, although I’m not sure he knows the meaning of the word.

Ashley Jacobs Explains Why She Called Kathryn Dennis An “Egg Donor”; Kathryn & Patricia Altschul Discuss Progress In Their Relationship

Say what you want about Ashley Jacobs, but she sure has a way of bringing people together. Sure, people have come together against her, but she still has a significant effect on the viewers- a negative effect, but a significant one nonetheless. She has united the Southern Charm fandom and it could even be argued that her antics helped bring former enemies Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul to the same side.

Ashley has provided us with many tweet-worthy moments, but at what cost? Her rant against Kathryn during the Season 5 finale definitely went too far. She had the nerve to tell Kathryn “You’re nothing, but an egg donor.” Needless to say, pretty much every Southern Charm viewer is on Kathryn’s side.

Southern Charm Finale Recap:

Were you suffering from Southern Charm withdrawals last week? I know I was. While the last episode gave us friendship and butt crack, last night was all about drama and formality. It certainly delivered, although Bravo sure knows how to gloss over current events, doesn’t it?

Craig Conover is still living like a college student (and that statement is an insult to college students), and he welcomes Cameran Eubanks into his halfway house. She’s critical of the space, which is well-deserved, but she puts on airs when she sniffs the box wine he offers. She grills him about practicing law, but he counters that he’s yet to be sworn into the bar. He’s still working on the Character and Fitness portion of the application. As someone who went through this a while ago, the bar is basically making sure he doesn’t have an errant DUI (a regular one is fine…I don’t know that first hand, but I have some friends…) and isn’t an ax murderer. Clearly, Bravo reality whore ranks up there as a reason one wouldn’t be fit to practice law–in South Carolina. That’s a hard feat given the lawyers I know! Craig claims his pillow business is thriving, so attorney ethics benchmarks be damned! He presents Cameran with a bunch of pillowcases that he just needs to stuff before fulfilling his orders. She, like the rest of America, wonders what he’s waiting for with his sham empire. Was sham empire a pun? I didn’t think so until I typed it! She poo-poos his pillow situation as a distraction. Craig needs to focus on one thing. Isn’t he seeing a life coach? Craig admits that he stopped returning his life coach’s calls. Why can’t he take accountability? Craig reveals that Naomie Olindo may not have been wrong in labeling him a drifter.

Southern Charm Season 5 Finale Tonight- More Kathryn Dennis Vs. Ashley Jacobs Drama

To say I have mixed feelings about the Southern Charm finale is a major understatement. Don’t get me wrong, I have been looking forward to the Kathryn Dennis vs. Ashley Jacobs showdown all season, but at the same time I just don’t want Season 5 to end. Thankfully there are still reunion episodes to watch.

Tonight’s finale is bound to be epic. There’s just something so entertaining about the cast arguing in evening gowns. Oh and the previews tease rumors that Ashley may be a hooker- which is bound to cause a lot of controversy at Patricia Altschul’s party.

Ashley Jacobs In Hilton Head

At this point, the Southern Charm cast is either talking about Ashley Jacobs or waiting for the next opportunity to bring her up. Same goes for most of the viewers. This woman isn’t even a full-time cast member, yet she is definitely stirring up the most shit this season- by far.

It’s a major red flag for most of the cast members (and the viewers at home) that Ashley moved from the West Coast all the way to Charleston, South Carolina just to be with Thomas Ravenel- of all people.
