Ashley Jacobs has officially broken her silence about Thomas Ravenel. The former Southern Charm star apologized to fans and Kathryn Dennis for her behavior last season with an apologetic note on social media. But are fans buying Jacobs’ apology?
Jacobs issued the apology on Instagram shortly after Bravo gave her and Ravenel the boot from Southern Charm. It also comes roughly a week after Jacobs and Ravenel ended their relationship. Jacobs cleared her social media of any and all pictures of Ravenel last week, the same day that Ravenel announced his departure from Southern Charm.
Although Jacobs followed Ravenel’s lead all season long, their breakup seems to have sparked some regret on her behalf.
According to Decider, this is the first time Jacobs has apologized for her actions last season. She wasn’t apologetic at any point during the season and did not say anything about how she treated Dennis during the Southern Charm reunion (which Ravenel did not attend). She did, however, seem genuinely sorry about how things went down.
In her note, Jacobs admitted that she did not understand the sacrifices parents make for their kids and hopes that Dennis will find it in her heart to forgive her for all of the nasty things she said.
There is no telling how Dennis will react to Jacobs’ apology. In the meantime, Ravenel is still dealing with the fallout of his departure. The Southern Charm star announced his exit on social media last week and made it sound like it was his decision to leave. Inside sources, however, claim that producers fired Ravenel because of the sexual assault allegations that were levelled against him this year.

Two women have come forward and accused Ravenel of sexual misconduct. This includes one woman whom Ravenel paid $200,000 to keep quiet and his former nanny, Dawn. The nanny says that Ravenel assaulted her while she was watching his children. Police are still investigating the claims made against Ravenel and should be releasing their findings in the coming weeks.
Thomas Ravenel has not responded to Ashley Jacobs’ recent apology. He released an official statement on the sexual misconduct scandal and assured fans that he is fully cooperating with police. He also denies the allegations and expects the charges to drop.
