Southern Charm was epic this season! There was a lot of drama between Ashley Jacobs and Kathryn Dennis. Ashley is dating Thomas Ravenel, who is Kathryn’s ex. Although Kathryn and Thomas are no longer together, they do have two children together. Thomas was accused of sexual harassment and abuse (even by their former nanny) so this season had a lot of scandal. Even Andy Cohen was shocked by Ashley this season. The most extreme moment was when she called Kathryn an “egg donor.” Ashley made an appearance on the Southern Charm reunion to defend herself and Thomas.
However; she does have some regrets. What does she wish she would’ve done at the reunion? Apologize. Ashley revealed to The Daily Dish that she wishes she had apologized to everyone for her behavior during the Hilton Head Island trip. It was on that vacation that she got into an argument with Kathryn. Ashley said, “That’s not how I felt at all. I didn’t realize looking back that I made their trip uncomfortable. If I had a chance to apologize not just to Kathryn, but to Shep and Chelsea and Craig, you know, everyone else that was in this house that had to deal with me. In hindsight, I wish I would have said something sooner, I wish I would have apologized to everyone in that moment in that home, and I didn’t. It didn’t occur to me that they were sort of hurt, too. And I ruined a memorable trip for them as well, so I feel bad for that, that I didn’t apologize to them.”
Is her time on Southern Charm coming to an end? Ashley shared a heartfelt post on Instagram that has people speculating, will she stay or will she go?
August 3, 2017 I moved away from Santa Barbara, California. A year ago I was living a safe, quiet, private life. Though there wasn’t really anything wrong with my life, I just knew I wasn’t on the right track. Today, I am living in Charleston, South Carolina. I had met a man, and not too long after, I hopped on a plane and flew 2,300 miles to Charleston with the intention of starting a new life. I left behind my family, friends, my home and basically everything that has made me who I am. I went on a reality show (we all know how that went) and this past March I started working as a nurse. A year ago, I basically had all my ducks in a row, but something was still missing. So I said, “Screw the ducks!” and created chaos. And a chaotic life it is. It is messy, lonely, adventurous, funny, happy, emotional and scary, but it’s all mine. Every time I tell someone my story, I am met with reactions ranging of praise and shock to doubt and judgment over my motives. It’s a complicated life to choose, and a lot of people can’t really wrap their heads around the concept of doing something so extreme. Not a day goes by where I am not met with moments of overwhelming doubt. But the decisions I made became mine and mine alone. I’ve had to learn to embrace the freedom of not knowing. It’s a life that forces me to trust myself because there is no one else around on whom to fall back. If I had never left home, I know exactly where I would be right now and where my life would be going. Now, I couldn’t even tell you where I’ll be tomorrow. In becoming the rawest version of myself, I opened up this world of deep emotions I didn’t know were possible. I have learned to embrace those moments of doubt and fear. Those are the moments I realized how capable I am and how much stronger I am as a person for taking the risks I needed to take. I only get one shot at living, so I’m living for myself without the influences of other people getting in the way of who I am. Thank you to all those who have loved me and supported me through this tough journey. I am humbled. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. I am beyond words of gratitude??
I’m glad that she realized she owes them big apologizes now. It seems she is being accountable for her actions during that trip and this season in general now. Life is all about growing, learning and loving. It’s best not to hold grudges. It’s hard to think about what Southern Charm would be like without Ashley on it – with all of the drama that happened. It made for good reality TV. I’m loving me some Southern Charm!
