At this point, the Southern Charm cast is either talking about Ashley Jacobs or waiting for the next opportunity to bring her up. Same goes for most of the viewers. This woman isn’t even a full-time cast member, yet she is definitely stirring up the most shit this season- by far.
It’s a major red flag for most of the cast members (and the viewers at home) that Ashley moved from the West Coast all the way to Charleston, South Carolina just to be with Thomas Ravenel- of all people.
Last night’s Southern Charm was like an SNL review from Stefon. It had EVERYTHING. Butt cracks and callousness, polo and pettiness, and after dark, this plantation rages with the owner of the Boar’s Nest, insecure Florence Nightengales, and one very promising comeback kid. There is so much to recap, I’ll just dive into the craziness. It’s why we’re all here, right?
Craig Conover is still suffering from the great butter knife incident of ’17, and it is making it very difficult for him to follow his dreams to master the Singer. He recruits his roommate for help while whining about Patricia Altschul not giving him one more day to produce the pillow that would knock her caftan right off–alas, Ms. Pat does things on principle…like not extended already greatly extended deadlines. She’s so rigid!
Appearing on Southern Charmas Thomas Ravenel’s girlfriend, it was inevitable for Ashley Jacobsto receive lots of criticism. Thomas has been an extremely polarizing character throughout the years and Ashley isn’t doing herself any favors by fighting with him and the mother of his children, Kathryn Dennis.
As a result, a lot of Southern Charm viewers are coming at Ashley on social media. Unfortunately, it’s for a lot more than just her antics on a reality TV show. Ashley has spoken out against the people who have commented on her extreme weight loss.
During the last season of Southern Charm, the fandom was rooting for Austen Krolland Chelsea Meissner to make a relationship work. Just a season later, they are no longer together, Austen dated one of Chelsea’s (now former) close friends, and it just felt like there was something unfinished between them.
Now, it seems like there is zero hope for any sort of reconciliation since Austen went off on his ex-girlfriend in response to fan comments on his own Instagram post.
Last night’s episode of Southern Charm showed several of the cast members extremely worried about Kathryn Dennis and her safety as she went missing for a few days. Her building manager did a welfare check and declared she was physically okay. Kathryn later revealed that she was dealing with a bout of depression and needed to shut out the world for a while. Danni Baird, Naomie Olindo and Shep Rose weighed in on their thoughts during and after the incident.
On Southern Charm’s After Show, Danni Baird shared how unusual it is for Kathryn Dennis to ignore her calls. “Normally when she goes MIA or goes into hiding, she’ll respond to ME. this was a circumstance where she didn’t and it just kind of freaked me out a little bit. It was different than every other time.”
