Patricia Altschul seemingly shades Sonja Morgan for not paying her interns, plus the Southern Charm star reveals if there’s any competition between her and Craig Conover‘s respective home decor businesses.
Every Real Housewives of New York City fan knows how much Sonja adores her interns as she speaks about them often. However, Patricia appeared to take a jab at the blonde beauty regarding said interns after introducing her own apprentice to her Instagram followers.
“My intern MaryGrace….I knew immediately she would reflect my dedication to hard work and abstinence,” she jokingly captioned a photo of MaryGrace drinking from a Chambong, which is used to drink champagne at a rapid pace.
But after a fan asked Patricia if she’s running a “Sonja Morgan intern program,” that’s when she offered up a bit of shade.
“No… mine is an actual paying job,” she quipped in her response, which was captured by Comments By Bravo on Instagram.
Her followers immediately took notice of the paid position, and it seems several were ready to send Patricia their resume.
“Next time you’re looking for an intern, Ms. Altschul, I’m ready, available, and at your service,” one fan commented.
Another wondered, “Have you considered a [57-year-old] intern with a love for pups, the beach, and all things Southern, and a size [two with a] 5’7” frame?”
Meanwhile, in other news pertaining to Patricia and her business, she was recently asked if there’s any bad blood between her and her co-star Craig, who owns Sewing Down South.
If fans recall from season seven, Patricia and Craig dissed one another’s pillow lines, and the Southern Charm matriarch fired the first shot.
“I don’t consider Craig competition in any way, in any form,” she stated in a confessional. “My pillows are unique and in the luxury category. Craig’s pillows are affordable.”
Following the December episode, Craig appeared on Watch What Happens Live where he referred to the 80-year-old as a “catty little child” after claiming that Patricia is jealous of his “pillow success.”
However, according to Patricia, she and Craig are in a great place as she even attended the grand opening of his Sewing Down South store in Charleston, South Carolina.
“It’s so silly. I adore Craig,” she told Forbes in late July before noting their previous collaboration, which was featured on the show. “When I was doing custom-made caftans that we put people’s cats and dogs on, we collaborated on a pillow. Craig’s pillows are more casual and totally different.”
