Southern Charm Cast Update: Patricia Altschul’s Reason of Purchasing the Birkin Bag

Patricia Altschul proved her wealth in the South by recently buying the bubble gum pink alligator Birkin bag. However, the “Southern Charm” star chose to explain the reason behind the very expensive purchase. Read on for details.

Altschul’s blog revealed that the Birkin bag was purchased “strictly as an investment.” The resident glam mom of “Southern Charm” explained that Birkin bags are usually purchased and traded as “commodities.”


Altschul assured that her Birkin bag is still “unsullied and pristine in its original box.” She planned to sell it for a good price.

“I have never worn nor carried it anywhere,” Altschul stated.

Whitney Sudler-Smith’s mother definitely chose a practical decision. A similar Hermes Birkin bag was recently sold during Christie’s auction in Hong Kong. According to StyleCaster, it was sold for a whopping price of $222,912. It is made of pink crocodile skin and diamond-covered 18K white gold hardware, which was considered the most expensive handbag in the auction.

Christie’s also sold 300 more designer bags in the same event. A black crocodile Hermes Kelly bag was sold for $145,000.

Altschul previously encountered controversies regarding her wealth. FITSNews reported that Tamara Tattles is given a cease-and-desist letter from a New York lawyer. It was because of her statements about Altschul’s possession of heirlooms from the Lee family. The website’s claims came from Suzanne Kent Cooke. She is an ex-wife of former Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke.

Cooke commented on OkHitS that Altschul stole the Lee heirlooms from her husband, Ed Fleming, who is a descendant of Lee. She elaborated that Altschul even stole Robert E. Lee’s bed and “brooch pin which contains a lock of hair.”

“Southern Charm” Season 2 airs every Monday at 10:00 p.m. on Bravo.
