Former Southern Charm stars, Ashley Jacobs and Thomas Ravenel are no longer together – but they seem to be on great terms now. They split in August and have had many ups and downs. Recently the former lovers had some drama on social media, but now they’re sharing love towards one another on there. Recently Ashley posted on Instagram a heartfelt message for Thomas. She shared a photo of the two smiling, and wrote, “For all the crap we went through together this past year, the good really does outweigh the bad.”
She added, “You can’t go through stuff like that and pretend like it never happened, like the person who got you through some of the toughest times of your life means nothing to you now. You were my boyfriend during a time in my life when I needed you and you needed me. I don’t know how much I believe in the idea of fate, but if it exists, I know it brought you and me together for a reason … even if we weren’t meant to last forever.” Thomas saw it and replied, “Our time together brought much outside pressure, but what they didn’t see was how I treasured your precious presence. I pray that you’ll be spared more senseless anger moving forward. I wish you good things, Ashley. Only good things. Always, Thomas.”
Just one week before, Thomas called her “hateful” for her rude comments on the show towards his ex-girlfriend and mother of his children, Kathryn Dennis. That post has since been deleted. E! News had posted a screenshot though, where he said, “I totally disavow this horrendous behavior and will have nothing to do with her.” Also in the comments section he had said he, “begged her over and over to no avail … So hateful. Hope she gets help.” Ashley did address that, when she was asked why the politician was ‘all of the sudden turning.’ Ashley replied, “Thomas and I aren’t together. I wish him the best though.”
According to Us Weekly, Thomas had implied after the split that she had cheated on him. He tweeted this summer, “Today, my personal life just took a huge upward turn. I finally have more than enough information to move forward without any doubt or hesitation and I’ll never look back … After 30 years I finally understand the lyrics from that wonderful Chicago tune: If she would have been faithful / if she could have been true / then I would have been cheated / I would have never known real love.”
Ashley denied all of that, telling Us Weekly, “I was back in my hometown, Santa Barbara, at the end of July/beginning of August and I had actually kind of called things off with him and I didn’t want to put that out publicly. When I came back to Charleston, I was still spending time with Thomas, but I made it very clear to him that we weren’t exclusive. People can think, ‘She’s having her cake and eating it too,’ but I wasn’t necessarily dating people or hooking up with people.”
Although Ashley had great things to say about Thomas, she does not feel the same towards the rest of the cast. In the comment section of her tribute post, Ashley blasted her former Southern Charm co-stars after one of her followers suggested she become friends with them now that she and Thomas have split up. Ash said, “Yeah no offense, but the cast are a bunch of losers.” Ashley added that Patricia Altschul she especially didn’t want to reconnect with, writing, “Especially that old Patsy broad.” In the past, Patricia was friends with Thomas and Ashley, but she turned against them during season five of Southern Charm. Patricia thought they were attempting to sabotage the mother of his children, Kathryn, amid their custody battle.
Would she ever do Southern Charm again? She says no! According to Reality Blurb, Ashley commented, “Never would I do Southern Charm again!!! I took all the bullets for them last season. They won’t take advantage of me again. I hope the sh*tty cast doesn’t quit their day jobs (oh wait, they don’t have jobs).” Ashley added, she wants to “distance” herself from the cast.
Now Ashley’s social media is set to private, but Reality Blurb and other sites have posted screenshots of everything. Ashley says she’s “speaking her truth.” See for yourselves all that she had to say:
Woah! This was a lot! I’m glad that Thomas defended Kathryn because they did not act nicely towards her last season at all. I think they both see that now after watching the show. I’m glad that Ashley and Thomas are moving forward now and are on good terms. Life is too short for the negative, so it’s good that they are being positive. Ashley’s post was super sweet, as was his response. I think her comments about the cast is probably stemming from hurt feelings in regards to the show. Ashley must be hurting to have such strong feelings about some of the cast and the show in general. I think it’s best for Ashley and Thomas to not return and I think they’ll have healing happen in the meantime. Ash should focus on being a nurse. They certainly made for good Reality TV, though! I’m excited for next season and I wish them all the best in their other endeavors.
