Michael Kelcourse, lovingly known better as Michael The Butler, is the unsung hero of Southern Charm. He’s always there to lend a hand and mix up a perfect martini for Patricia Altschul at her beck and call. He never gets involved in the drama, but his presence brings a calming and old-world feel to the show. It’s welcome comedic relief from the constant drama from all the tumultuous relationships on the show.
So when Patricia announced in February that Michael suffered from a debilitating spinal stroke, fans were heartbroken. A blog was set up for regular updates on Michael and Patricia said he was “rapidly progressing” after receiving care. It’s nice to see Patricia being a part of taking care of Michael for a change because we all know he definitely deserves it.
And Pat’s given another update in a recent Instagram post. Michael has been transferred from the Shepherd Spinal Center in Atlanta to an assisted living facility for the interim. In the photo, Michael is seen smiling alongside two people. And, of course, he’s using a blanket covered in dog faces that was probably a gift from Pat.
“Michael has made many good friends while at the amazing Shepherd Center.. tomorrow he will be transferred to an interim place with assisted living in order to continue with his rehabilitation. Everyone loves #michaelthebutler,” Patricia wrote on Instagram. She’s got that right — Southern Charm really wouldn’t be the same without him.

Let’s hope that Michael’s recovery continues to progress so he can be back in Charleston soon. And when he does make his return, let’s hope Michael is the one ringing the bell for Patricia and Whitney Sudler-Smith to wait on him hand and foot. Now THAT would truly be a sight to behold.
Aside from taking care of Michael, Patricia recently took to the internet to stop the spread of any rumors about Whitney. We know Madison LeCroy has a new boo, and after a rumor started that she was seen making out with Whitney, fans thought he might finally be her Budweiser. However, Pat says that’s all a lie, so we’ll have to wait until next season to find out.
