They’re baaaaaacck…Head’s up, Southern Charm fans! The crew from Charleston has returned for Season 6. We will see new faces, old faces, and faces you had hoped you would never see again. Returning to your television screens will be newish mom, Cameran Eubanks. Shep Rose is still hanging around, because what else does he do? Captain Beer himself, Austen Kroll, has a new girlfriend and is hopefully making money this year. Then there’s Craig Conover. Our Craigy passed the bar (not the one that serves alcohol, no one on this show passes a bar). He is presently fulfilling his current life’s dream of being a sewing master. I do not hate on this. I love a man who has actual domestic skills. Also returning is Kathryn Dennis. Kathryn has stayed out of trouble and has been keeping busy. She even has a new man in her life, but you can only go up after the father of her children.
Gone from the fold is
convicted felon, Thomas Ravenel. Thomas basically unraveled (see what I did there) and got himself a one way ticket off the show. Thanks to a sexual assault charge and an extremely psychotic interesting girlfriend. These days, he spends a lot of time in court. Speaking of the psychotic girlfriend, whatever happened to Ashley Jacobs? She was a real Snickers bar with extra nuts. Ashley took being Thomas’ girlfriend VERY serious and essentially turned herself into the show’s resident pariah. She basically begged Thomas to marry her on a regular basis. She had no concern that he financially funded her escort lifestyle way of living. Ashley also backed herself into a passive-aggressive corner with the rest of the cast. Now, I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger – no wait, I am saying she’s a gold digger. If she were a smart woman, she would have packed her bags and returned to her family in California. Like I said, IF she were a smart woman…
Fans of Southern Charm kind of assumed once Thomas
was given the boot “chose” not to film anymore, he would take his girlfriend with him. After alienating everyone in the greater Charleston area, there wasn’t much left for Ashley to do. But much like a roach infestation, it’s hard to get rid of this one. Viewers were shocked to see coo coo for cocoa puffs Ashley show up in the Season 6 trailer. But according to show veteran Cameran, no one was more surprised than the cast.
Cam spoke on the surprise appearance to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, “I was shocked just as everybody else to see her back,” she admitted.
Cameran said, “I figured the mature and the smart thing for her to have done after last year would have been to get on a plane and go back home to California, so when I saw her roll up at that party, my mouth was hanging wide open.”

Ultimately, Cameran teased, “I won’t give away too much but she definitely tries to make amends and I think the viewers will have to wait and watch to see how we all react to that. So she wants in; she wants in the group really bad. It’s kinda sad.”
Totally sad. Weirdly sad. Watch-your-back kind of sad. Is this tenacity or just plain crazy? Ashley is an incredibly controversial subject, but seeing as Kathryn completely changed her life, maybe Ashley can too. I wouldn’t bet my paycheck on it though.
When asked if Ashley could ever be friends with the rest of the Charm squad, Cameran said, “Hey, never say never.” Listen, there was a time everyone hated Kathryn as well. I do not stan for Ashley in any way, but I guess anything is possible. I would personally stay 500 yards away from her at all times and perhaps have my phone set to call 911 at a moment’s notice. Based on her history, she has a lot of amends to make.
Southern Charm returns to Bravo on May 15. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Charmers have in store for us this season.
TELL US- ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE RETURN OF SOUTHERN CHARM? DO YOU THINK ASHLEY JACOBS IS IMPORTANT TO THE SHOW? DOES ASHLEY HAVE ANY PLACE NOW THAT THOMAS IS GONE?
