In an effort to get to know constituents and to show the voters he can be a down-home guy, T-Rav hosted an open house at the Ravenel Plantation. He, a reality star and politician, hosted a party in his home that literally anyone could attend. LITERALLY ANYONE COULD WALK INTO HIS HOUSE. Brave man, that T-Rav. On Monday night’s episode of Southern Charm, Senate hopeful T-Rav and girlfriend Kathryn welcomed a sea of randos through their front door and in their backyard. Uff da. Maybe I'm an incredibly paranoid person who watches too many true crime shows, but the mere thought of letting a bunch of strangers wander around my place of residence gives me so much anxiety. Sure, I like to meet new people and be hospitable, but 50 or so randos roaming my home at once would test every last one of my limits.
Per usual, Cameran and I were on the same page. “I think it’s crazy,” Cameran remarked in a talking head. “I’d totally be freaking out if it were my home.” SAME. I wouldn’t be able to sleep for a month. I would convince myself there was a chance someone secretly cased the joint while chowing down on a plate of pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. Stranger danger is real, y'all.
...But I would be on board if I'd been planning to moving out of that home the next day. Well, well, well, what do you know? Kathryn and T-Rav had been planning to move out of that home the next day! So it was sort of like an open house a realtor would host, but instead of selling the plantation, T-Rav kept the plantation and relocated his family to new townhouse in the city. Brilliant timing, Team T-Rav.
Speaking of timing, Monday night's episode taught me all about about dressing drink o'clock. While primping for Cooper's fashion show, Patricia phoned Michael the butler. She informed him it was time for her "dressing drink." He knew exactly what she meant. He prepared her cocktail and delivered it to her. She sipped her beverage while she picked out which jewels she'd wear. The picture of elegance.
Later, her high heels for the evening would be presented to her on a silver platter.
Patricia outdoes herself every week and I am LIVING. FOR. IT.
