Will Southern Charm viewers see a one-on-one confrontation between Thomas Ravenel’s girlfriend Ashley Jacobs and Patricia Altschul one day? Perhaps so. While a recent episode showed Patricia kindly taking Ashley out on a shopping spree, things between the two have turned sour since then. As made clear by her social media posts since the season began airing, Patricia is now firmly in Kathryn Dennis’ side and thinks that Ashley should be gotten ride of.
As the latest episode aired on Thursday night, which showed the continuation of Ashley’s provocation of Kathryn in front of everyone as Thomas stood by, Patricia took a jab at Ashley. In response to one viewer who said that Andy Cohen should invite Ashley on to Watch What Happens Live so that she can be eviscerated by callers, Patricia, the mother of the show’s creator, producer and cast member Whitney Sudler-Smith, said that “fortunately,” Ashley’s “not a cast member.”
Ashley has responded to Patricia’s jab. In the comments of her latest Instagram photo, a viewer pointed out that Patricia said on social media that Ashley’s not even a cast member on the show. Ashley responded that Patricia’s right but also pointed out that she’s on TV more than the actual cast members.
“ashleyhjacobs” @chellelynnblue She’s right, I’m not. Yet I’m on the tv more than the actual cast members🙈 Go figure🤷🏼♀️”
As for what those actual cast members should do, Ashley thinks that they should thank her. Last episode showed Chelsea Meissner, Danni Baird and Naomie Olindo all sticking up for Kathryn against Ashley. Danni in particular was very vocal, go so far as cursing out Ashley and pinpointing her as being a manipulator.
“ashleyhjacobs: @ckg103 You are so sweet!! It was so nice to read this comment!! Thank you for the love! You’re right about the other girls…😴💤💤 They should be thanking me! Drama = ratings. You’re welcome😂”
In the comments of her photo, Ashley also called Kathryn and her friends “fake reality tv girlfriends” or “people paid to be friends.” Perhaps Ashley also includes Patricia Altschul in that group?
“ashleyhjacobs: @married__to_a_fox Definitely! Glad I’ve had a ton of girlfriends my whole life.. I don’t need fake reality tv girlfriends or people paid to be friends🙏🏼”
As previously reported, Ashley Jacobs admitted last week that she created and instigated drama with Kathryn Dennis just to provide entertaining TV for viewers. Yet she has also continued to claim that her love with Thomas Ravenel is real and that they’re still very much together.
