Whitney Sudler-Smith

Ashley Jacobs In Hilton Head

It’s safe to say that Ashley Jacobs is the most polarizing character in all five seasons of Southern Charm– which is saying an awful lot considering who else is on this show.

Nevertheless, Thomas Ravenel’s girlfriend has managed to rub just about everyone in the cast the wrong way. Not only that, but it is possible that she hit on some of her man’s costars. Sure, that’s up for debate, but Craig Conover, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Shep Rose and Austen Kroll discuss what went down.

Southern Charm Recap:

A lot happened last night on Southern Charm. Beers were brewed, confrontations were had, splints were worn, and T-Rav is still looking at Kathryn Dennis in a way he’ll never look at what’s-her-name. However, none of that matters. The only thing I picked up from last night’s episode was that Kathryn and Shep Rose have had a pattern of hooking up since Kensie’s birth. WHAT?? I thought this was a manufactured storyline, but hearing their admission, I’m here for it. Sure, there is no potential for anything long-term, but girl, you do you.

As always, the episode begins as the charmers are prepping for their day. Austen Kroll is picked up by Craig Conover who has a bionic hand thanks to his butter knife situation from a few weeks ago. The duo heads to Greenville (my hometown, sorry, but I love this stuff!) to get ready for the tasting of Austen’s new beer. Austen shares with Craig that Victoria isn’t ready to party with Chelsea Meissner after Naomie Olindo’s Hilton Head Island Instagram story. Yes, we’re still talking about it, and yes, I’m confused as to why so much breath has been wasted on it. Victoria still feels threatened…by her friend…who introduced her to Austen….when said friend was dating him first. Weird how that works, right?

Instagram Roundup: Kathryn Dennis, Tamra Judge, Teresa Giudice, James Kennedy, & More!

This week most of your favorite (and even some of your least favorite) reality TV stars were all about the family time and shared lots of photos on Instagram.

Even with all of the drama on screen and off, Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel came together as parents to support their daughter. Now I just can’t help wondering who took that family photo? Was it Ashley Jacobs?

Southern Charm Recap:

After two drama filled episodes of Southern Charm, it was time for a calm catch-up wasn’t it? Last night’s episode was just that, with a little dose of puppeteering from a guy who loves to pit women against one another. And no, I’m not talking about the brew master!

Austen Kroll’s girlfriend has hung up on him after spying Naomie Olindo’s Instagram story that shows him sitting a tad too close for comfort with Chelsea Meissner. Ashley Jacobs wants to hit the hot tub with Whitney Sudler-Smith who jokes she should soak with her new friends. As she cackles, Kathryn Dennis and Naomie sneak out of the kitchen before Ashley gets any ideas. Austen pulls Chelsea aside to share Victoria’s rage. Chelsea hates that Austen is being forced to choose between dating Victoria and maintaining a friendship with Chelsea, but that seems to be what is happening. He doesn’t understand. If Chelsea was hurt by his relationship and wanted him back, it would be one thing, but that’s not the case. Is it? IS IT? Austen certainly wishes it was.

Thomas Ravenel

The rumors that Thomas Ravenel will not attend the upcoming Southern Charm reunion have just been substantiated by Bravo! That makes it official, y’all – it’s a white pants-free zone.

Frankly, I’m not surprised by the decision. Not only has Thomas been battling two high profile sexual assault allegations, but Patricia Altschul and Whitney Sudler-Smith are not speaking to him in the wake of not only his legal issues but also the vile tragedy that is his girlfriend Ashley Jacobs. And Patricia has made NO secret of her disgust towards Thomas. ‘Bout time lady! Did Michael slip a wake up call in her cocktail and a reality check under her perfectly ironed cat-ty caftan? 

Southern Charm Recap:

I don’t think it would be humanly possible for me to get sick of Southern Charm even if it aired all year long. This season, in particular, has been everything, and it’s not because of someone claiming to play the role of villain after getting reamed for their bad behavior. It’s been so fun to watch Kathryn Dennis get her life together while Thomas Ravenel implodes (or explodes as happened last night). This week’s episode had everything: Craig Conover hit rock bottom, Naomie Olindo acted crabby, and Shep Rose, who loves EVERYONE, was unable to stomach T-Rav’s latest plus one. Mix in some mild canoodling (and tears) from Chelsea Meissner and Austen Kroll, and it was a winner! Just kidding, it was full-on hard to watch mess thanks to what’s her name. My friend, who has been hesitantly straddling the Team Kathryn fence (she can’t forget), expressed it best when she texted me that her husband had a headache due to the amount of screaming she’d been doing at her TV in favor of our underdog.

Last week’s cliffhanger had everyone screaming “What Dau…fu(skie)?!?” at their television screens when Ashley Jacobs came for Kathryn on the charmers’ weekend getaway to Hilton Head Island. Just a quick refresher: Ashley really wants to be invited to Saint’s birthday party, so she went about procuring an invitation in the best way possible…feigning sympathy for the passing of Kathryn’s grandmother followed by insulting Kathryn’s mothering skills. It’s Emily Post 101, y’all!

Southern Charm Recap:

Last night’s Southern Charm had everything America needs right now. Kathryn Dennis went head to head with her very whiny replacement. Thomas Ravenel lost the drinking game where he had to take a shot every time his wallet’s girlfriend said the word “birthday.” Most importantly, CRAIG CONOVER REUNITED WITH GIZMO. It was an episode for the people, no doubt.

The crew is heading to Hilton Head for the weekend, so Shep Rose has postponed his knee surgery, because, you know, priorities. Naomie Olindo is looking forward to some girls’ time with Kathryn and Chelsea Meissner, but she is dreading having to hang out with her ex Craig. He just brings out the mean in her. Her roommate urges her to have a heart-to-heart with Craig before the trip. They need to get in the fast lane to the friend zone to make it less awkward for the entire group. Chelsea checks in on Kathryn to find out that her grandmother has passed away. Kathryn was very close to her grandmother, who viewers met when she gave her blessing to a baby Kathryn in a relationship with a fifty-year-old T-Rav. She reminisces about going the library and playing board games with her grandmother, and it sounds like that had a very special relationship.

Kathryn Dennis & Craig Conover Comment On Sexual Assault Allegations Against Thomas Ravenel

When it was announced that Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Craig Conover would be on Watch What Happens Live, the fans wondered if they would address the sexual assault allegations against their costar and the father of Kathryn’s children Thomas Ravenel.

No one from the Southern Charm cast had commented on it at that point, but Andy Cohen asked about it right out of the gate.
