“I’m calling it Armageddon!”
That’s how Southern Charm star Patricia Altschul describes co-star Thomas Ravenel’s dinner party disaster. Viewers got a taste of the event in the season three premiere -- Thomas screaming at Shep Rose, Cameran Eubanks and Landon Clements, then chasing them out of his house and barking at them through a fence. The rest of the party will air in upcoming episodes.
“You know, I just had an inkling that all hell was going to break loose, and I was right,” Patricia remarks. “I was invited to that dinner party, and I knew that with the assembled group, nothing good was going to come out of that dinner party.”
“I mean, it was incendiary,” she adds. “I'm surprised the police weren't called. That's my reaction to it … I think he chased them down the street in the golf cart, and golf carts can only go so fast. I think it was pretty scary.”
Cameran admitted to ET back in March that it was, indeed, pretty scary.
“I don’t know if [Thomas] was having a [psychotic] break or what,” she said. “It was shocking, to say the least.”
We have a feeling one of Patricia’s parties would never get that out of hand. The wildest thing that’s happened at one of her southern shindigs this year was Shep in a Speedo jumping into her pool. Of course, we had to ask Patricia how she pulls off the perfect party -- she’s writing a book on the subject. Turns out, she has three simple rules.
“Be totally organized and do everything you can ahead of time,” Patricia shares. “Have somebody else cook the food, and have a margarita machine!”
“That is my great tip, because if you have a margarita machine and you start off with two or three margaritas, it doesn't make any difference what you serve,” she jokes.
Patricia says the margarita machine trick is now a family tradition, with her son and Southern Charm co-star, Whitney Sudler-Smith, having one at every party he throws, too.
Speaking of Whitney, Patricia also opened up to ET about his alleged relationship with Kathryn Dennis. Watch the video below
