Ashley Jacobs was at the center of the gossip during last week’s Southern Charm season finale, because of a rumor going around Charleston that she was an escort. The news traveled fast and quickly made its way to Jacobs and her boyfriend, Thomas Ravenel, and he said it was absolutely not true and “absurd.”
According to People Magazine, the “awkward rumor” first popped up courtesy of Naomie Olindo and her roommate, who told the group that a family friend from Jacobs’ hometown of Santa Barbara, California, said the nurse was actually an escort.
Ravenel’s ex and baby momma Kathryn Dennis said that she had heard the rumor from several people, and she wasn’t trying to be mean, but she believed it.
You have to laugh at her “how Ashley Jacobs is winning”. Really? Calling the FBI because people were not nice to you on social media? Creating so many troll accounts that #HiAshley is trending. I could go on. But if that’s winning, I’ll take losing any day.

But, Jacobs’ believes that Dennis is just jealous of her relationship with Ravenel.
“She’s so delusional. You know what she says? ‘I don’t think about you, I don’t talk about you.’ But you know what I want to say? Every night you go to bed and lay your head on your pillow, you think about how Ashley Jacobs is winning,” Jacobs told Dennis’ friend-turned-nemesis Jennifer Snowden.
Once the escort rumor reached Jacobs and Ravenel, thanks to Austen Kroll, she immediately asked if Kroll thought she was a nurse. Kroll responded that he didn’t know, and then asked how he could know. He added that he has never seen Jacobs do anything but spend Ravenel’s money.

Jacobs showed her nursing license to prove her occupation, but Craig Conover said that things were not working in her favor. Ravenel is paying for everything, and Jacobs did tell Conover and Shep Rose that she would date them. Conover said that it was guy code to question if Jacobs had the right priorities.
The escort rumor was definitely the talk of the evening, but Jacobs and Dennis got into it once again, when Jacobs told Dennis that she shouldn’t forget that she lost her kids and someday people are going to know why.
Dennis replied by calling Jacobs a gold digger and said that no one likes her – not even Ravenel.
Jacobs said that she isn’t going anywhere, so Dennis should get used to her. And, she added that she is the best thing to happen to Ravenel, and he is the best thing to happen to her. But, Dennis wasn’t convinced. She asked why the father of her two children is miserable and depressed.

But Jacobs claimed that Ravenel couldn’t stand Dennis, and she has to “hear about this all the time.” Dennis quickly quipped back that Jacobs was telling a lie, and she actually talks to Ravenel regularly about how he couldn’t stand Jacobs.
Their confrontation ended with Dennis believing Jacobs was threatening her when she warned her to “be careful” because she knows a lot of information.
Ashley Jacobs also claimed that she has the life Kathryn Dennis wants, and that is why she feels threatened.
