Say what you want about Ashley Jacobs, but she sure has a way of bringing people together. Sure, people have come together against her, but she still has a significant effect on the viewers- a negative effect, but a significant one nonetheless. She has united the Southern Charmfandom and it could even be argued that her antics helped bring former enemies Kathryn Dennisand Patricia Altschulto the same side.
Ashley has provided us with many tweet-worthy moments, but at what cost? Her rant against Kathryn during the Season 5 finale definitely went too far. She had the nerve to tell Kathryn “You’re nothing, but an egg donor.” Needless to say, pretty much every Southern Charm viewer is on Kathryn’s side.
To say I have mixed feelings about the Southern Charm finale is a major understatement. Don’t get me wrong, I have been looking forward to the Kathryn Dennis vs. Ashley Jacobs showdown all season, but at the same time I just don’t want Season 5 to end. Thankfully there are still reunion episodes to watch.
Tonight’s finale is bound to be epic. There’s just something so entertaining about the cast arguing in evening gowns. Oh and the previews tease rumors that Ashley may be a hooker- which is bound to cause a lot of controversy at Patricia Altschul’sparty.
Even with all of the Kathryn Dennis vs. Ashley Jacobsdrama this season on Southern Charm, one of the most shocking moments of the season was when Kathryn revealed that she and Shep Rose have hooked up several times since her daughter was born. Somehow this never made it onto the show, but I cannot help wondering about it.
I have so many questions and thankfully Andy Cohen did as well. He asked Shep all about his behind-the-scenes hookups with Kathryn during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
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.
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.
Thomas and his new girlfriend Ashley Jacobs have truly united the viewers (thanks to shared annoyance). Kathryn’s comeback story is easy to root for and she very casually hit us with the revelation that she and Shep Rosehave hooked up a few times after her daughter was born. Even Naomie Olindoand Austen Krolladmitted that they were shocked by the Thomas and Ashley fights and the Kathryn and Shep hookups when they were on Watch What Happens Live.
