This May Be Why Ashley Jacobs from ‘Southern Charm’ Wants to Bond With Landon Clements
Ashley Jacobs from Southern Charm retreated after alienating the entire cast following repeated attacks on Kathryn Dennis. She joined the cast as Thomas Ravenel’s new love interest, but the relationship quickly fell apart during the season.
Since last year, Jacobs returned to her home state of California. It appears she and Ravenel parted ways although she makes an appearance on the current season of the show. She’s also posted a few photos with Ravenel this year, implying the two have reconciled, at least briefly.
Most recently she posted a photo with former cast member Landon Clements. The image was shot in California as Clements moved to the West Coast as well. Jacobs gushed about how connected she feels to Clements, but why so much love? Perhaps because the ladies have so much in common.
She’s found a connection
Even though Jacobs clashed with the cast, she desperately wanted to be part of the show. Unfortunately, she seemed to seal her fate during last year’s reunion, but pops up again this year, without Ravenel by her side.
Jacobs’ return to the show will likely be very brief and explosive. Cameran Eubanks spoke with Entertainment Tonight about her appearance. “I was shocked when I saw Ashley,” she said. “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.”
While the current cast doesn’t seem to be receptive, Clements appeared to be friendly toward Jacobs. “I love this woman!” Jacobs wrote on Instagram. “Although we were never on the show together, she’s the only person from the show who has been there for me. We have been put through the wringer and we came out stronger. I feel so fortunate to have found such a great support system and true friend in @alandonclements Onwards and upwards!”
They both had a romance with Ravenel
Although Clements never completely became Ravenel’s girl, she was his possible love interest during her last season of the show. Patricia Altschul pushed the romance as both Clements and Ravenel seemed to seriously consider a union.
Jacobs not only dated Ravenel but moved to Charleston to be by his side. She started her season as Ravenel’s girlfriend but quickly lashed out at most of the cast. Plus she appeared to enjoy seeing Ravenel defend her with his angry outbursts toward his friends.
Both women tried to land Ravenel but neither could make it work. Jacobs was especially determined to continue her relationship with Ravenel, but it now appears they are living apart. One possible reason a future is impossible is that Ravenel is embroiled in a sexual assault mess.
And then there is Kathryn Dennis…
The women also both battled Dennis who shares two children with Ravenel. Clements spent her last season on the show trying to ice out Dennis. She planned Shep Rose’s roller skating party but refused to invite Dennis. This enraged Rose as he didn’t want any of the cast members to be left out.
Jacobs’ attempts to move Dennis out of the way were more overt. She was furious when Dennis refused to invite her to a birthday party for one of the children. This sparked a number of angry insults, which included calling Dennis an egg donor.
As though both came full circle, Clements has softened her tone toward Dennis since leaving the show. Last summer Clements tweeted she was happy for Dennis’ success. “Popping up on @Forbes it’s been a long road KD. Happy for your happiness.” When a fan asked about the feud, Clements responded, “The past is the past we should all look to a bright future (also don’t believe everything you read).”
Also, Jacobs issued her own apology to Dennis last summer. She shared a message on Instagram apologizing for her comments, especially about how she treated her as a mother.
