Ashley Jacobs, who is the girlfriend of Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel, caused a lot of drama during season five even though she wasn’t a full-time cast member. But thanks to her feud with Kathryn Dennis and her rumored breakup with Ravenel, the gold digger won’t be back for season six.
“The production fired Ashley last week. They were considering bringing her back for season 6, but her volatile behavior was too risky for the network,” claims the website All About The Tea.
Dennis confirmed the firing when a Twitter follower asked her if Jacobs would be getting a second season with the Bravo reality show, and she replied, “She will not.”
Shame on BRAVO TV AND THE PRODUCERS OF SOUTHERN CHARM. there is a reliable source stating Ashley Jacobs was hired to "play" the role of TRAV girlfriend and signed NDAs. Ashley Jacobs contract was for 1 season and she had a role she was hired to play to spice up the show. #shame

According to Radar Online, Jacobs left Charleston last week and returned home to Santa Barbara, California, amid rumors that her relationship with Ravenel is over. With Jacobs out of town, Ravenel spent last weekend on his boat with his ex and baby momma, Dennis, plus their two kids, Kensie and Saint.
An insider says that Dennis and Ravenel enjoyed a drama-free weekend with their kids, and with Jacobs gone there was no conflict. All About Tea is also reporting that Jacobs called Dennis a “wh**e” in some shocking text messages that she sent to Ravenel after she found out he was getting a massage with his ex. This resulted in the couple having a huge blowout.
I admire @Pataltschul for her restraint—this girl is trying to deflect and use her as a scapegoat and sorry..not true and won’t work for ya A! Move on. Ugh. Patricia is amazing and you took her kindness for granted. #byeA https://t.co/jd76htxE8e

Since Jacobs wasn’t an actual Southern Charm cast member, Bravo did not pay her for her appearances last season. However, they did give her $5,000 to fly to New York City for the reunion show. She had hoped to return next season, but it doesn’t look like that is going to happen.
So, if Dennis wants to continue her feud with Jacobs, it looks like she is going to have to do it on social media. After Jacobs claimed at the reunion that she had lost a bunch of weight because of stress and pressure from the show, Dennis called her out on Twitter.
I make my husband watch #SouthernCharm with me because Ashley Jacobs makes me look like a saintly choice in a life partner. Thanks gurl xx

Dennis didn’t buy Jacobs’ explanation that filming made her so nervous that she couldn’t eat and wrote that it was her first year and she is an “a**hole.” She added that the original cast has been through way more than Jacobs has, and she needs to get herself together and move on. Dennis concluded by writing, “Be an a**hole in private. Truth hurts. Bye.”
Ashley Jacobs says she doesn’t like having enemies, and she would like to be on good terms with Dennis for the sake of Ravenel and his kids. She says that she would like to be cordial with Kathryn Dennis, so they are able to say hello and have a friendly conversation.
New episodes of Southern Charm will return to Bravo later this year.
