‘Southern Charm’: Are Ashley Jacobs and Thomas Ravenel Back Together Again? Patricia Altschul Spills Tea

Southern Charm fans were just as shocked as the cast when Ashley Jacobs showed up back on the show for Season 6. There were a variety of reactions to her walking up to the crew, ranging from gasps to stunned silence. Suffice it to say, it was an uncomfortable moment for everyone involved. During the episode, Shep Rose asks Jacobs if she’s still with Thomas Ravenel, and she gives a telling response. But the season was filmed a long time ago — could Ashley Jacobs and Thomas Ravenel have gotten back together since then?

Unhappy to see her

Ashley Jacobs certainly didn’t make many friends among her Southern Charm peers last season. She remained steadfast when it came to Thomas Ravenel, actually going out of her way to attack Kathryn Dennis, calling her an “egg donor,” not a real mom. 

Meanwhile, she and Patricia Altschul started feuding — Altschul claims it was a result of Jacobs harassing one of her friends. When asked why she dislikes Jacobs, Altschul tweeted, “Why people ask? Because of his and Ashley’s smear campaign, character assassination, lies and purposeful defamation.”

She followed up with another tweet. “And let’s add to that list an innocent friend of mine who was viciously cyberbullied by Ashley because of her obsessiveness and insecurity,” tweeted Altschul.

Cameran Eubanks told Entertainment Tonight, “I was shocked when I saw Ashley. But then, I wasn’t. I was hoping that if she had any sense, she would go back to California, which is her home, which is where she’s from, where all her family and friends are. I cannot believe she stuck around.”

The worst year of her life

When Ashley Jacobs showed up on the scene, the Southern Charm cast was understandably shocked. Shep Rose, however, had a burning question. He approached Jacobs and right away asked her if she and Thomas Ravenel were still together.

“How do we sum up [the] worst year of my life?” replies Ashley Jacobs. “Maybe I need a cocktail first.” It sounds like she had her own nightmare moments with Ravenel — does that mean Jacobs and Dennis might end up uniting over their mutual bad experiences?

Rose added, “So the relationship’s done but you’re staying in Charleston? That’s cool.”

It did not sound like it was cool. 

Are they together again?

Now, Southern Charm fans are wondering if the two might actually be back together, or if they’re totally done for good. Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs were spotted together previously on New Year’s Eve, a source told Us Weekly. That’s almost four months after their breakup. 

“It was a fun night and dinner with friends and they toasted with champagne when the ball dropped,” the source told Us Weekly

On Instagram Live after their breakup, Jacobs had said, “I don’t want to comment but there are just some things I’m trying to handle privately. Before I say too much, I love Thomas and I’ll always love Thomas. I’ll always care about him.”

She added, “I’m still trying to work it out, not work out getting back together, but I’m still trying to figure it out. I think everyone’s been through breakups before but it’s hard. It’s not easy. … Sometimes you just want to stay quiet and figure out what the next move in your life is going to be. … I’m just trying to take care of myself the best way that I can.”

But, according to Patricia Altschul, the two might be back together again. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Altschul said, “Let me tell you what somebody told me, they ran into Thomas, I think this was last week, they said, ‘Are you still with that woman?’ And he said, ‘Well, yeah. Who else am I going to get?'” 

If Altschul’s source is right, then perhaps the two are back together after all.
