But this season, it seems as though the Southern Charm matriarch has softened toward Kathryn, saying that she hopes she's getting the help she needs as she deals with her substance abuse issues and that she'll be able to turn things around. So does this mean Patricia's negative feelings toward Kathryn have mellowed a bit recently? "I would be a hypocrite if I said I was yearning to get to know her better," Patricia said on Monday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "However, I'm hopeful that she will turn her life around this year."
But one WWHL caller still wanted to know why it seemed like Patricia has been so hard on Kathryn when Thomas Ravenel has made mistakes in the past as well. "I think that you should watch the entire season because you're going to have some things divulged to you that you didn't know before," Patricia explained. "And that's the reason why."
