Let's face it: We all want a little of that glamorous Patricia Altschul swagger for ourselves, Kathryn C. Dennis included. So when the Charleston mama recently popped up on Instagram rocking a caftan (a move approved by Patricia, naturally), she began to understand what it's like to walk even a few inches in the Southern Charm grand dame's designer shoes. In fact, it was a fashion choice that had her considering a whole Patricia-inspired lifestyle change: "My very first caftan! Now I just need a puppy."
However, Patricia, who knows a thing or two about being a pet mom, quickly offered up some sage advice about, perhaps, not jumping on the puppy bandwagon just yet, noting, "Darlin...with 2 young children that’s the last thing you need."
Despite icy relations in the past, Kathryn and Patricia have since started up a bit of a friendship as of late, with the women teaming up to throw some sass Stephen Colbert's way, Patricia showing up to celebrate Kathryn turning 27, and even hanging out to watch the Southern Charm Season 5 reunion together.
Patricia recently chatted with The Daily Dish about this new bond she has with Kathryn following them hanging out and making amends with one another during the Season 5 finale at a ball hosted by Patricia (clip above), with the Charleston matriarch explaining, "I would hope that we are friends now. We had a very nice conversation at the finale, at the ball. It went on even longer than was shown and I have high hopes that we’ll be friends in the future."
