Patricia Atschul: Her Martini Has Its Own Butler

Recommended Posts

Eh, I think the consensus is that Patricia peaked in the first or second season.

I still like Patricia and think she's a caricature of something (of what, I'm not sure) and she knows it and plays it up. She's pretty much the only one on the show I'd want to hang out with.

I love that Patricia is rarely filmed without a Martini in hand but has never appeared drunk, unlike everyone else on this show. Imperious and catty, sure, but I think she's a hoot.

yeah but isn't that likely a prop?

It's not like they're pulling out their iPhones and filming her and she always has a martini.  They take a lot of time to set up the cameras and the lighting and do hair and makeup for the on-camera talent.

Plenty of time to prepare a Martini for her to hold on camera.

I'd be happiest if I were living in her house and she came to visit. :-D

Oh yeah!

Still though, my favorite house of any of the franchises is  Yolanda's.

And then there's the time Drunkie O's lawyers threatened a blogger for posting info that was already available and repeated multiple times on the internet:

http://tamaratattles.com/2015/04/17/jesus-damn-yankees-are-difficult-creatures/

They want to make it clear that I reposted information readily available on the Internet,”with reckless disregard for the truth with a motive to damage her reputation, and business relations and suggesting she is unfit for her profession.”   I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING! Since when are bloggers not allowed to repost information? I credited the sites! They are all still out there!  I can’t help it if as they say “I already have more than 200 comments.” That reinforces to me I am small time, and  I WAS QUOTING THINGS ALREADY OUT THERE!

 

The best part was that Drunkie O's lawyers demanded their cease and desist letter remain top secret. I think Patsy hired the same fools who wrote Tamra Barney's cyst and deceased letter.

I love Patricia's story about how she met, then married, each of her rich husbands so quickly.  When one strikes gold, one doesn't wait months to grab it and take it home.

That's right, she didn't sit around and let some other woman jump her claim. 

I gotta say, it's in the Golddigger Handbook that if you want a man to marry you, get him when he's in that early-enamored stage (e.g., Craig with Naomie). That's where Kathryn made her big mistake. She could have been Mrs. T-Rav before Kensie was born if she had been a tad wiser, sweeter, and kept her crazy under control until they'd been to the alter.

Didn't Patricia leave out two husbands when she was telling her stories of love and marriage?  Sometimes the truth is more interesting than the carefully crafted image.

Yeah, I've always wondered about the name "Whitney Sudler-Smith". Neither of Whitney's parents or stepfathers was named Sudler. I have a feeling that, as a pretentious, social-climbing youngster, Whitney hated being just plain "Whitney Smith", so he dug up the name Sudler from somewhere back in his family tree and hyphenated it with the Smith to make himself sound more "aristocratic".

I read somewhere that Whitney added in the Sudler because he thought a hyphenated name would make him seem even more pretentious than he already is. I mean, Whitney Smith just doesn't have the same ring to it.

This doesn't surprise me in the least.

This reminds me of a running joke I have with my friends who have or are having kids. I've told them that they should use the name of a prominent American family for their kids' middle names because most people never ask and just assume that you are a member of that prominent family. Who would really have the chutzpah to give their child the middle name of DuPont,  Vanderbilt, Roosevelt, Kennedy, Mellon, Scaife, or any other name of a prominent family if they weren't related to said family? No one. That's why no one ever questions it. It worked for Clark Rockefeller and Taylor (Shana Hughes) Ford Armstrong. Or you could be like Ralph Lauren's family who all changed their names to Lauren when he became famous.

Pat (I call her Pat 'cause we're tight like that) is actually pretty gracious on Twitter. Someone asked her if the could have one of her used flamingos from the flamingo party and she not only agreed but offered to send more.

Well, she has a lot of them.

I wonder if that would work with her used money...

Has anyone been noticing her jerking/twitching movements? Sometimes it is very mild and sometimes not so mild. It makes me think of Parkinson's.

I have noticed. She seems older this year. Not sure but I guess she's between 75 and 80. I hope it's not Parkinson's.

She turned 75 in April. Could just be normal shaky movements that happen when one gets old. I hope so, she seems like a very vibrant lady.

Then where does the Sudler come from? Patti was a Dey, not a Sudler, right?

I believe her "Yankee"  Mothers maiden name was Sudler.

Jenna was an LA friend of Whitney's, right? And she went to several gatherings at Patricia's too, so I'm assuming she was cool enough with Pat, but probably just seen as yet another one of Whit's more colorful, creative type cronies that Pat's used to randomly entertaining on his behalf.

 I admittedly follow Jenna on social media because I'm still beyond baffled/fascinated by her entire lifestyle. She doesn't appear to be involved with the wealthy married dude anymore((or else it's extremely hush-hush now)), yet she still travels lavishly around the world in a private jet, lives in a pimped out LA penthouse, wears expensive clothes/accessories and doesn't appear to work. I cannot fathom how or what she does to live like that since she didn't come from money---investments and gambling, she claims? Is it bad that I keep wondering if she's really an escort or drug dealer??((she and her buddies do seem high half the time))

I didn't recall much about Jenna.  This link provides some background.

https://www.bustle.com/articles/23145-southern-charms-jenna-king-lived-a-lie-on-the-show-duh-its-reality-tv

Sounds like much of what she provided was not factual, though, that's common on reality tv.  It seems her boyfriends provide much of what she has and does.  Maybe, she's a professional groupie.  See the movie Almost Famous?  Penny was one.  She traveled all around the world, met all the biggest stars, best life ever, until it wasn't.

I was at the taping of the Bitch Sesh podcast on Saturday, and there was some disgusting info revealed about Patricia from a friend of the hosts who has Charleston sources. Among the dirt: she collects racist art that she calls her "negrobilia"; and a friend of hers, when dying of AIDS, gave her art/collectibles of his (I think as a keepsake) and good ol' Pat turned around and sold it after he passed.

That dog print caftan Patricia was wearing was soooooo fugly. And she even has her own line of pet customizeable caftans (regular ones too I suppose)??? Totally creepy. And of course Landon bought one. Kiss ass. What is Pat's obsession with caftans? Anyone know? We almost never see her wearing anything else. To me, that is bizarre.

I think that Patricia wears a lot of caftans because of their comfort and that they are very forgiving with body issues. . With them one doesn't have to wear Spanx, or worry about panty lines. They do not show muffin areas and can hide wide hips or a big derrière (we aren't talking about the 'fit' ones that the younger starlets sport these days). It's pull on and go. I think she's doing it this season especially as a means of self promotion for her line. I'm wondering how many she has had made with her pug on it. I've seen her wear it on WWHL, and on this show...I know they can be laundered (anyone out there know what fabric they're made of?). Are they washable or need to go for dry cleaning? Whitney was wearing a silk suit. I think it was TRav or Shep that picked up on the fabric as he entered the door to Patricia's fete. Fancy Dancy. 

P.S. Lol'd at the Landon kiss ass comment @fliptopbox

This is almost certainly not what the friend was referring to. This painter paints animals in the style of old masters. 

Negrobilia is understood to be pretty much just racist items depicting black face caricatures, sambos, picanniny characters, and black minstrelsy on signs, children's books, salt and pepper shakers, cookie jars, mechanical and regular piggy banks, music boxes, and anything else on which they could slap offensive depictions of Black people. Some people collect these itens for historical and educational reasons. Considering that Whitney is her son, I doubt Patricia is collecting these items for those reasons. Whitney has said some sexist, homophobic, classist, and vaguely racially bigoted things. Additionally, the only person on this show who has been shown talking to any person of color where they weren't ordering food is Cameran. I side eye all of these assholes when it comes to things like this.

I don't like or admire her.  I did covet a couple of her classier caftans, and her martini butler, but the bitch woman doesn't fool me for a hot minute.

I unfollowed her on Twitter. Too boring. Maybe she is really a gambler, who knows? Maybe she yachts? I have a fascination with people live big and don't work. Has be loads of money to maintain her overly cultivated LA look.

I only follow her on Instagram because her IG stories always give interesting clues about her lifestyle. And the rich older dude is apparently still very much around((he was having dinner with her and was in her friend's IG story for a moment)), although it's weird that she doesn't mention or show him at all on her own feed. Embarrassed to still be a sugar baby?

Maybe she wants to avoid being named the other woman in a divorce case. 

Too late for that, as evidenced from her "If I were a golddigger I could've married Lou years ago" talking heads on S1. That's just a weird, wacky story right there...being a well-kept concubine apparently affords her quite the luxe lifestyle.
