Ashley Jacobs might be nuttier than a squirrel’s nest, but we need her. Southern Charm was in danger of getting stale. There’s only so many times Shep Rose can be drunk. Who wants to watch Craig Conover not sew his pillows? Or listen to Austen Kroll pontificate about beer and his lack of
personality employment. While an ensemble cast is great, occasionally someone needs to come in and ruffle some feathers.
Heeere’s Ashley! She used to date Thomas Ravenel and she’s still stirring things up. While Thomas gaslit his new
victim love and manipulated encounters with Kathryn Dennis, Ashley eventually turned down a dark road. She hurled disparaging remarks at Kathryn in a liberal fashion. But should Kathryn thank Ashley? She managed to turn one of reality television’s most hated, into Mother of the Freaking Year. Ashley had a role and she committed to it full throttle. Now she’s dealing with the aftermath of her actions, and what it means to be a villain.
If last week’s episode Southern Charm was the introduction of Mary Jane into the cast (with cameras involved, obviously), last night’s show was a sky-high debacle. It’s the first day on the mountain for the Charmers, minus Shep Rose who is still nursing a drunken knee injury and Whitney Sudler-Smith who is still crying over a ski accident from childhood. Chelsea Meissner is channeling Putin’s mistress, Austen Kroll is pretending he’s not trying to hook up with ex Madison LeCroy, and the majority of the girls are headed to ski and snowboarding lessons.
Over a pre-slope breakfast, Austen denies any smooching with Madison, but he’s not going to lie and say he doesn’t want to rekindle that flame. Cameran Eubanks recognizes that this trip will not be rejuvenating her mojo as she FaceTimes with baby Palmer. The group is quick to motivate, waiting on Kathryn Dennis to don her Tellatubbie/Charlie’s Angels (original, not the reboot) ski look. It’s a lot, but it is magnificent.
It took a week for us to recover from Ashley Jacobs’ appearance on Southern Charm, and this week’s episode gave us more Craig Conover tantrums. He needs a new shtick. At least we were treated to a change of scenery as the group jetted off to Colorado.
The show begins with Cameran Eubanks joining Shep Rose at the site of his new lot on James Island. It’s 3.5 acres for a mere $900K, and Cameran is is convinced it’s a money pit. He doesn’t have any site plans, and he’s unsure about the flood zone designation which is a very key item in Charleston. The pair discusses their upcoming trip to Colorado, and Shep is peeved to hear that Cam has included Austen Kroll’s ex Madison LeCroy in the group.
Even though Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel is no longer on the show, his nasty custody case with ex Kathryn Dennis is playing out in the public eye.
Thomas thinks he has a smoking gun thanks to cell phone records. He wants to prove that he is merely a victim of a media hungry young woman with a drug problem.
Last week marked the return of the notorious Ashley Jacobs to Southern Charm. Thomas Ravenel’s loose cannon ex was invited by Eliza Limehouse to a gathering at her family’s country home. Ashley managed to anger or offend nearly everyone there. Things got even worse once she actually started to speak to the guests!
However, the two Southern Charmer’s whom Ashley has had the most drama with (besides Thomas) weren’t even at the gathering. Kathryn Dennis was at her brother’s wedding–a lucky break for her! Ashley’s other arch nemesis, grande dame Patricia Altschul, must have declined the invite–or maybe she had a previous luncheon engagement at McDonald’s. Patricia might not have been at the gathering, but she shared her thoughts about Ashley on social media before the episode aired. Needless to say, they weren’t warm and fuzzy accolades.
Shep Rose had some choice words for Ashley Jacobs following her return to Southern Charm.
The Charmer let fans know exactly what he thought of Thomas Ravenel‘s on-again-off-again girlfriend popping back up in Charleston to cause drama with his friends.
After last week’s
snoozefest episode, it was about time Southern Charm offered up some serious drama that didn’t involve Craig Conover getting his feelings hurt. Last night was the highly anticipated return of Ashley Jacobs, who proved, yet again, that she can’t take responsibility for any of her actions. It is exhausting to watch her battle over semantics, but it’s torturously entertaining. Let’s dig right in to last night’s show, shall we?
While the OG Charmers are bonding with their pooches, Recent College Grad is complaining about how hard it is to be overshadowed by the Limehouse name. With three hotels and a $50 million inheritance in her future, Eliza works hard to learn the family business booking reservations and covering shifts at hotels. She is not just a spoiled polo brat like most people assume. Eliza discusses the skeet shoot brunch she and her boyfriend Don will be hosting at her family’s plantation. Her mother nags her about emo manicure and sleep habits…and the fact that Eliza is dating someone fourteen years her senior. She wonders if her daughter is seeking a father-figure in her older beaus. Her mother would rather Eliza marry into another well-bred Southern family instead of traipsing around with some thirty-something from (gasp!) New Jersey.
The romantic history of Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis reads a bit like a bad romance novel. One that you might not believe if you picked it up at the bookstore. Viewers are all too familiar with Kathryn’s dramatic relationship with her ex Thomas Ravenel, who is old enough to be her father. And her brief dalliances with co-stars Shep Rose and Whitney Sudler-Smith along the way. Plus, an unconfirmed fling with Craig Conover.
This season, Kathryn revealed that she was dating someone new, Joe Abruzzo, a Florida politician. But that relationship flamed out as quickly as it began. Then, earlier this year, Kathryn announced via Instagram that she was dating country singer Hunter Price. And so far, that relationship has endured. Kathryn has not shared a lot of information about their romantic life, but she recently discussed how the two met and also spilled some details on their relationship.
