Southern Charm’s Patricia Altschul Stands Firm Calling Ashley Jacobs A Gold Digger

The Southern Charm cast has made it known that they are not big fans of Ashley Jacobs since she joined the show to film alongside boyfriend Thomas Ravenel. Ashley has slammed the mother of Thomas’ children, Kathryn Dennis, and even hit on other men in the cast. Another person who is no fan of Ashley’s is Whitney Sudler-Smith‘s mother, Patricia Altschul, who feels the newcomer is nothing but a gold digging famewhore.

In a new interview, the Southern Charm matriarch shared, “My new favorite word is ‘famewhore,’ I love to use it whenever possible, so… famewhore! Famewhore! Famewhore!”

Patricia is like the rest of us, wondering why a woman would pick up and move across the country for such a new relationship. “I think it’s hard to fall in love after five dates. Call me a skeptic, and the fact that she was so adamant about getting a ring, getting clothes, getting jewelry, getting Vuitton luggage, I mean, it seemed a little too obvious to just be love.”

She didn’t hold back when she told ET, “I called her a gold digger. I stand by that, and she told [my son] Whitney [Sudler-Smith], which I thought was kind of insulting, ‘If it weren’t for Thomas, you’d be my second choice.’”

Patricia say she tried to give Ashley a proper welcome at first, but then she showed her true colors. “I was one of the few people that was nice to Ashley over the season. I never really knew how awful the Hilton Head episode was, until I saw it for myself.”

She was floored by Ashley’s behavior and appalled that she didn’t follow any of Patricia’s advice. “She did the opposite of everything that I told her to do. I would say it hasn’t worked for her… She’s kind of the example of what not to do. If you could write a list of what not to do, she would personify that.”

Patricia also shared that everyone in the cast seems to have a strained relationship with Thomas these days. She says she doesn’t “know anybody on that cast that keeps up with her or him.”

On Ashley attending the reunion she says, “I guess she went to, to defend Thomas.” Adding, “I understand that Ashley blames me for everything. Whatever it is, it’s my fault … if there’s anything that I want to take away from the reunion is, I didn’t do it!”
