There has been serious animosity between Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Whitney Sudler-Smith all season and now it appears to make some sense to the co-stars—-now that they have figured out that Whitney was seeing Kathryn just before she started dating baby daddy Thomas Ravenel.
In fact last week it came out that Whitney and Kathryn had been “hanging out” just days before Kathryn got together with her baby daddy Thomas Ravenel.
Craig Conover claimed that the two were in a relationship and that Kathryn had basically moved in to Whitney’s mother’s mansion where Whitney was living.
But Whitney’s straight-talking mother Patricia Altschul claims that Kathryn and Whitney did not have a relationship.
Pat recently spoke to ET:
“I mean, it is drama playhouse to the nth degree,” ….. “I’m always surprised that all of this happens in our sleepy, little Southern town.”
As far as the relationship between K Den and Sudler-Smith she says,
“What can I say?” ….. “I live in one wing of the house, and at that time, Whitney was living at the other wing. And I think that this whole contrivance that there was a relationship is misconstrued. I mean… I don’t like to use the term one night stand. I prefer ‘sleepover.’”
“I think this was just a good, old-fashioned Southern sleepover,” Pat claims. “I mean, I never saw her in the house except once.”
“The funny thing is, she was talking about having a relationship that went on for a week and a half,” Pat adds. “I mean, I think that it was relations — they had relations, they did not have a relationship.”
At any rate Whitney does not seem happy with his edit this season and no wonder he manages to hide this situation for 2 and a half years!
What I find intriguing about all of this is the fact that everyone seems to hate Kathryn and want her off the show, but no one seems to have the power to give her the boot. I guess what I am saying is who is steering this ship? It would appear that Executive Producer Whitney Sudler Smith would have a ton of clout but apparently not!
The other thing that I find intriguing is that Pat is so bent out of shape about this revelation. WHY??!! Why does it make a lick of difference in the grand scheme of things if Whitney was with Kathryn or not? She seems very nonchalant in this interview but she is not being nonchalant about it on Twitter.
I just discovered that I was added to the #blockedbyPat club on Twitter which I find surprising because overall I think I have been pretty kind to her and her son and since it just occurred it must have been because I wrote a piece mentioning the rumors — in a very matter of fact way even. So her disproportionate response is a bit bizarre, but intriguing.
Not to mention I never tweet Pat anyway! I can’t even recall the last time I tweeted her. It would have probably been season 1 and it would have been something kind so what gives? Why are you getting all Taylor Swift Bad Blood on me P?
Why block someone who isn’t even tweeting you?
At any rate, given that it took 3 years for this situation to come out I have to wonder if both Whitney and Pat had been working hard the past 2 years with producers to keep it under wraps.
They’ve taken a situation that really seemed like a non-situation and turned it into the situation of the century with their response.
