In case you were wondering, Patricia Altschul and son Whitney Sudler-Smith spent a good portion of 2020 self-quarantining together in Charleston at Patricia's home. The Southern Charm matriarch shared the news on Instagram where she also posted a moment with Michael the Butler from the Southern Charm Season 7 trailer that features her sterilizing a package amid the pandemic.
She also shared some insight into that time. "Michael the Butler, [Whitney] and I were self quarantined together for 4 months," she said, referring to the time spent with her live-in right-hand man, as well as her son, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. She added, "Shenanigans."
Previously, Patricia revealed why it was possible for Whitney to spend an extended period of time at his mom's home in South Carolina. “Michael, Whitney, and I have been self-quarantined since March 6th,” she wrote, adding, “Whitney can do his work from Charleston.”
In fact, the pandemic will be a topic tackled during Season 7 of Southern Charm, in which Patricia and Whitney will make appearances. According to the network, "This season, these Southern Socialites must navigate a consequential year that tests their relationships against the backdrop of a global pandemic and a cultural shift in Charleston, while still trying to maintain the breezy, low-country living they know so well."
Bravo added in a press release about the new season: "Cameras documented their lives from February to July 2020 with self-shot footage during quarantine."
As for what fans can expect from the new season, Patricia teased alongside that moment of her sterilizing the delivery, "Yes Michael, Whitney and I will be back. And there will be lots of fun, frivolous times as well."
She also added, "It’s wilder than ever... no one can think these things up."
Southern Charm returns on Thursday, October 29 at 9/8c. Check out the trailer for the new season, above.
