It just goes to show the old cliché is true. There might be someone out there for everyone! Exhibit A: Ashley Jacobs. The former
victim girlfriend of Southern Charm alum, Thomas Ravenel, has certainly been unlucky in love. During her reality television stint we saw Ashley plucked from the polo fields of Santa Barbara and plopped in the swamp by Thomas’ guest house. Ashley made quite an impression on the cast and viewers alike, as in nobody wanted to be around her in any capacity. Ashley’s fondness for torturing Kathryn Dennis after her daily ritual of gaslighting by Thomas became exhausting.
Thomas and Ashley’s relationship was anything but conventional. It was toxic at best and Ashley seemed to embrace her role as the Villian of Charleston proper. She managed to alienate most everyone, eventually Thomas had enough of her antics as well. After a brief return to the show last season, Ashley figured out
everyone hates her she needed to head back to sunny California to start over. Now Ashley is spinning the wheel of love once again, and this time she landed on someone without an AARP card.
The gift that keeps on giving. Southern Charm’s former cast member Thomas Ravenel is no longer on the show, but has been creating lots of drama in real life.
Thomas and ex Kathryn Dennis could have had an entire show dedicated to the toxicity of their relationship. Yet, it’s not enough that the two of them were accusing the other of being a horrible person. Now, one of Thomas’ friends is getting involved.
Man, if this happens, it will be another ratings extravaganza for Bravo. They do love bringing back
criminals former cast members to shake things up. Like many of our faves, Southern Charm’s Cameran Eubanks showed up at BravoCon. This was actually good as fans of the show have speculated it might not return. Even cast members have seemed bewildered at the lack of filming. Word on the street is production will begin on Season 7 in January.
So the Charleston crew is probably breathing a sigh of relief that they aren’t dead yet. Last year viewers endured a trip down STD mountain and had their eyes repeatedly assaulted by the tragic sight of Austen Kroll in his underwear. Shep Rose seemingly grabbed the asswipe title and has hopefully adjusted his attitude as a result. Speaking of assault and asswipes, what’s happening with good ‘ole
boy Thomas Ravenel? T-Rav recently settled a custody dispute with Kathryn Dennis and all is well on Fantasy Island. Now that Thomas’ sexual assault case has also been resolved, will he dip his dainty toes back in the reality television pond? According to Cameran, it’s possible. Yikes.
To say that it’s been a tough year for Kathryn Dennis would not be descriptive enough. The Southern Charm star has really gone through it. This past year has been dominated by her very public custody issues with her ex Thomas Ravenel, who also spent a majority of the year facing sexual assault charges. I feel like that man basically lived at the courthouse.
Kathryn and Thomas co-parent their kids Kenzie and Saint. It hasn’t been smooth sailing though. They have been battling it out for custody and accusing each other of some nasty things in a super public forum. However, things have finally turned around for our favorite redhead, which she discussed in an exclusive interview with Reality Tea during BravoCon.
Wait. Did hell freeze over? Are pigs flying? There’s actually some positive news in Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel’s highly-documented custody issues. Yes, the Southern Charm star and former cast member (sorry, Thomas) are finally on the same page when it comes to their kids Kensie and Saint.
There has been a lot of drama between these two. Kathryn allegedly didn’t tell Thomas that she got in a car accident while their kids were present. A friend of his accused Kathryn of burglary. A video surfaced of Thomas allegedly doing drugs. Kathryn claimed that Thomas launched a fully-decorated Christmas tree at her and drunkenly fell in a pool while he was holding their daughter. Thomas accused Kathryn of going to rehab to cover up getting an abortion. And those are just the very recent stories. There’s a lot more drama in their history. There’s no word of what it took for them to put all the madness behind them, but they seem to be in a truly better place these days.
While we wait for an official announcement about Southern Charm’s return, viewers are still recovering from
Shep Rose the multitude of drama the stars gave us in Season 6. Not only were we tortured by the reappearance of Ashley Jacobs, fans were also introduced to recent college graduate, Eliza Limehouse. We can blame Eliza for bringing Ashley back, but it’s safe to say Thomas Ravenel’s ex wasn’t the one who brought class and sophistication to the show.
We can save that honor for Madison LeCroy. As Patricia Altschul’s hair stylist, Madison could also call herself Austen Kroll’s girlfriend. Because unemployed men with zero ambition and friends like Shep are a hot commodity in Charleston! Austen tested Madison’s boundaries when he was busted having a threesome. Madison tested Austen’s nerves when she wouldn’t take any of Shep’s misogynist garbage. By the time the cast reunited for the reunion, Austen and Madison were sadly no more. Well, now that
filming is about to start the holidays are approaching, we might have been given an early gift. Love is in the air! Sorry single gals and guys, it looks like Austen might be off the market again.
Craig Conover had a mostly good season on Southern Charm this year, despite some hiccups along the way. He finally kicked it into gear to take steps to get his online pillow business started, which he later called Sewing Down South. Craig moved on from pining over his ex Naomie Olindo. He also revealed at the cast reunion that some of his erratic behavior during the season was due to his problem with Adderall, which he seems to have conquered.
It was exciting to see the positive changes in Craig after years of stagnation. Of course, we all want updates on what he has been up to since last season. Southern Charm fans know that the show usually films in the fall and it appears the cast is not currently filming. Shep Rose even stated on a recent podcast that he didn’t know if there was going to be another season. Say it ain’t so! But, what is the real truth about a possible season 7 of the show?
Well, well, what do we have here? Have we lost another Bravo show? This is the time of year Southern Charm is in production, yet word on the street is no one is filming. The Charleston show was knee-deep in the swamps last season. We had Austen Kroll thinking he was Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Then there was the STD scandal, courtesy of Austen’s then-girlfriend, Madison LeCroy. And of course, Kathryn Dennis did not disappoint in her continued struggle to navigate motherhood and sobriety.
So what gives? We haven’t heard any rumblings about the show being axed and there is seemingly no reason why cameras shouldn’t be rolling. Unless Bravo and Haymaker are too involved with active lawsuits brought on by former cast members. Is it possible we have seen the end of Craig Conover’s pillow making empire? Will viewers be left hanging on the threads of Shep Rose’s non-existent love life? In a new interview, Shep gives an update on the future of Southern Charm. If there is a future.
