Even though I have always been #TeamKathryn, it’s taken a few years for the other Southern Charm fans to see what I’ve seen all along and support the person who has always made this show interesting: Kathryn Dennis.
All it took was for Kathryn to acquire an enemy that absolutely no one could side with: Thomas Ravenel’s new girlfriend Ashley Jacobs. From her instantly moving to Charleston to be with Thomas to rubbing it in Kathryn’s face that she first met Kathryn’s kids on Mother’s Day, this woman just hasn’t made a great impression on the fandom. Let’s not forget the first scene of the season with Ashley telling Kathryn that she is “just an egg donor.” There really isn’t a whole lot to root for when it comes to Ashley, so by default pretty much everyone is on Kathryn’s “side” in every single altercation they have.
According to an episode description on the Bravo website, the Kathryn vs. Ashley showdown takes center stage on tonight’s episode.
The description begins: “Emotions run high during the gang’s first night in Hilton Head, when Ashley confronts Kathryn. After the group is forced to pick sides, everyone is walking on eggshells for the rest of the weekend.” Everyone- aside from Thomas– has to side with Kathryn, right? There’s no way anyone could support Ashley demanding to be invited to Kathryn’s son’s birthday when her relationship with Thomas is so new and she doesn’t get along with Kathryn.
Aside from the Ashley and Kathryn drama, there is actually more to look forward to: “When the last flare up comes, it’s Austen [Kroll] who gets burned when a flirtation with Chelsea [Meissner] comes back to haunt him.” Flirting with an ex when you are currently dating her (former?) friend just doesn’t sound like a good move to make. At all.
