A new season of Southern Charm is upon us, which means more Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis drama (thank God). From the previews of the new season, it looks like Thomas has got a new girlfriend, and she's not going to get along with everybody on the show. So who is Thomas dating on Southern Charm? Her name is Ashley Jacobs and I don't think she's here to make friends, at least if the clips of her interactions with Kathryn are any indication.
Kathryn continues to be the best part of this show, as evidenced by this clip, which shows the two women dressed to the nines, including elbow-length white gloves, naturally, getting into a heated argument outside a fancy old house. Ashley tries to scoff at Kathryn, but she's no match for the reality TV veteran's righteous motherly rage. I'm not sure what Ashley did that caused Kathryn to fly off the handle at her, but Kathryn told her coldly, "I want you to know, you’ve crossed the line. And as a mother, f*ck you." The fight devolves from there while Thomas, as is typical of him, looks on without visibly supporting or defending either woman. Sure this isn't the most mature behavior, but it is absolutely why I watch reality television. So naturally, I wanted to know more about this Ashley person. After a social media deep dive, here is what I've learned.
