So apparently, TamaraTattles.com has arrived, as Nene Leakes would say. It’s been a bit of a banner evening. For one thing, Micheal J. McDonald , executive producer of American Crime tweeted me and retweeted this post of mine, then I got my FLOTO wallet that has been on backorder ever since someone here sent me a VERY NICE handbag they no longer wanted so now I can switch over without putting my Target wallet in a VERY NICE HANDBAG .
And then I got a cease and desist letter from Patrica Altschul’s fancy pants lawyers from New York City! #SQUEAL NEW YORK CITY Y’ALL! That right there is HILARIOUS I was going to wait to tell you about this until I consulted with my attorneys but I am so excited by the prospect of my attorneys deposing PATRICIA I could die!
Let’s review the super secret cease and desist that I am not allowed to share with anyone. I think this may be the best anti-depressant out there.
Okay, according to the fancypants boys in NEW YORK CITY that are defending the southern belle…Seriously. I can’t breathe. First, I might suggest that the third tier law clerk that wrote this letter needs to learn to spell and conjugate verbs correctly in scary documents…I’m just saying. The law firm of Norton Rose Fulbright should be embarrassed by all the errors, bless their heart.
Okay let’s see what they say. Oh and by the way there were big scary, bolded and underlined letters saying I am not allowed to discuss this cease and desist. OR ELSE. Because?
They want to make it clear that I reposted information readily available on the Internet,”with reckless disregard for the truth with a motive to damage her reputation, and business relations and suggesting she is unfit for her profession.” I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING! Since when are bloggers not allowed to repost information? I credited the sites! They are all still out there! I can’t help it if as they say “I already have more than 200 comments.” That reinforces to me I am small time, and I WAS QUOTING THINGS ALREADY OUT THERE!
I’m damaging the reputation of someone on a reality show by reposting comments from the Internet by someone who is apparently her arch business rival? She’s palling around with Thomas Ravenel while bringing along someone to make her martinis and I’m damaging her reputation? The attorneys went to all the trouble to find my full name, and managed to miss the shack I live in the ghetto? My site holds so much weight for this southern wannabee who lives in an explosion of chintz and gin martinis? Who knew? I have arrived indeed and am apparently upsetting the fake Charlestonians.
Business relations? Suggesting she is “unfit for her profession?” Is “business relations” a euphemism for marrying well? Her profession, at the moment seems to be “reality show participant” and I believe I called her a star at that profession. I think she is fantastic at being a reality show participant. She might be my all time favorite. If I had her kind of money I’d want to be a fake Charleston socialite too. But buying a house and being on a reality show I self-funded through my kid who lives in L.A., allegedly, would be my DREAM JOB. Alas, I’m a fat chick on the couch discussing things on my blog that I could only have found out about if she were not a public figure now do to her two seasons on a television show of which I am a fan.
Among my false statements, according to some law clerk in the bowels of Norton Rose Fulbright include, “reposting” statements by Susan Kent Cooke. I went into great detail pointing out that Suzanne Kent Cooke seems to have an ax to grind. A commenter or two even pointed out, we don’t know Patti, as SKC calls her indeed has the heirlooms of the Lee family as she suggests. Yet in the cease and desist, goes to great lengths to verify that the items previously owned by General Robert E Lee and the Pocahontas painting were all given to Patrica in the divorce settlement. So I guess that Patricia can clear that all up in her deposition in this lawsuit she wants to be the plaintiff in? I’m sure my attorney will also ask about the vitriol between Patricia and Suzanne in the deposition. I’d love to hear her side. Or she could have offered to give me a statement which I would still gladly publish to clear all that up. Something is going on between those two for sure and there is nothing like frivolous lawsuit to get all that on the record.
Who knows? But apparently Patricia wants to set the record straight. Nothing was stolen. So the items are confirmed to be in Patricia’s possession by her fancy pants NEW YORK CITY attorneys (as all southerners have) by order of a divorce decree. For the record, I had no idea if she had these items at all. I merely republished a comment on the Internet, that last I checked was still there. These two women obviously have a history. I cannot and have never held up the opinion of one side or the other. I just find the public squabbling amusing and reported on such. The cease and desist itself admits I call Cooke a dubious source. So perhaps making the divorce decree public would clear things up? We do know know that Patrica has some things from Robert E Lee. So that NEW YORK CITY attorney verified that.
The hilarity continues when they state that I called Patricia a damn yankee and that Patricia’s marriages have all been for money. AND THOSE STATEMENTS HAVE NO BASIS IN FACT. Yeah. I said that. I stand by my opinions. Opinions are different than facts and are upheld by the first amendment. This is apparently causing serious damage to Patricia’s reputation and career. Well that is a measurable allegation. I can’t wait to see the horrific damage delineated in court that I have done to Patricia. Is she going to have to give up a butler? I’d be happy to provide my IRS statements since I started this blog until present and my readership. I’d love to see the IRS statements of how I have harmed Patricia financially.
The letter says that I clearly knew I would hurt Patricia and the show when I posted. “I think you would all like the show more if you didn’t read what I am about to post.So consider not reading and further.” YOU. CAN’T. MAKE. THIS. SHIT. UP. Warning my readers that something I am about to copy from the Internet may make them like someone less? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Patti thinking I would see her as someone who even HAS feelings?
Finally, the idiot… I meant fancy pants NEW YORK CITY attorney for the fake Charleston socialite says in essence, that if I mention they sent this letter it is could be construed as of malicious intent. CHILE PLEASE. The woman is on a reality show. She’s married well several times. I report daily on reality shows. It is what it is. I didn’t invent it or sign on to be on one.
I think she is going to be alright if a fan of the show calls her a poseur and reposts some shit from the Internet written by someone she clearly does not like. You can either fuck off, or come on down and meet my attorney. I’d love to post all the depositions about how she acquired so many Lee family heirlooms that you admit she has in her possession. I’m VERY interested in that information, which is why I chose those posts out of all the ones on the Internet here.
Your attention amuses me. I have no money, my Elizabeth O’Neill Verner is only a print. And my house is worth less than $100K . I was gifted with a lovely handbag recently, if Patti would like a twice handed down bag…
It seems to me that Patti is everso jealous of Kathryn. She has lineage. Oh wait. I’m a DAR. That should make her squirm.
So no, I will not be taking down my post. Feel free to take whatever steps you feel necessary. The other day, I bought an EIGHT DOLLAR BLOCK OF CHEESE from Whole Foods. It was Parrano! That’s my favorite. So I’m going to slice some of that up now and eat it before you bankrupt me and leave me destitute. Remind me how I will know the difference?
Or you could continue this stupidity and it could go viral and I might make a dollar on my ads for a change.
Your turn. Yankee boys.
