Last week’s Southern Charm episode was the popular Bravo show’s fifth season finale, and things exploded between Thomas Ravenel’s baby momma Kathryn Dennis and his current girlfriend, Ashley Jacobs. After weeks of tension, the two got into another big argument, and Ravenel is admitting that he should have defended Dennis during the fight and apologized to fans on Twitter.
During their verbal brawl – that began at Patricia Altschul’s ball after the rumor started circulating that Jacobs was an escort – Jacobs called Dennis an “egg donor,” and reminded her that she had her kids taken away, and someday they will want to know why. Dennis shares two kids with Ravenel – 4-year-old Kensie, and 2-year-old Saint.
I see ASHLEY JACOBS got rid of her twitter account because she knew what was coming after she made a complete FOOL of herself on the season finale ! Her parents need to help her get some therapy !

Dennis responded to Jacobs’ insult by saying, “All you are is a gold digger, no one f***ing likes you, including your boyfriend. It’s all in your head.”
But Jacobs made it clear that she isn’t going anywhere, so Dennis should “get used to this.” She also claimed that she was the best thing to happen to Ravenel, and he was the best thing to happen to her.
After the episode aired, the 55-year-old Ravenel tweeted an apology for not defending Dennis and wrote that he “felt horrible” during their argument.
What I don’t understand is .. why doesn’t @Thomasravenel ever stop #ashleyjacobs from disrespecting @KathrynDennis it’s obvious he still cares for her as a person? She’s worked hard to get where she’s at and he is just letting some crazy woman do that! Not cool #southerncharm

“I felt horrible for Kathryn during the final scene of the finale. I should have explained to Ashley what Kathryn had suffered. She’s had major anxiety and depression issues along with two babies in rapid succession at a young age. The responsibility was mine, and I must have it,” tweeted Ravenel.
Altschul also tweeted about the argument and wrote that she thought Jacobs’ comments were “unspeakably cruel.” Altschul and Dennis have not had the best history, but Altschul gave her support to Dennis, and the two are working on making a fresh start.
At the end of the episode, fans found out that Dennis now has 50/50 custody of her two kids with Ravenel, after losing custody because she failed a drug test in 2016.
As for Ravenel, he is going through his own personal drama. South Carolina police are investigating allegations of sexual assault brought by two different women. One of the women is “Nanny Dawn” who has appeared on Southern Charm caring for Ravenel’s kids.

Also, real estate agent Ashley Perkins claims that Ravenel assaulted her mother, Debbie Holloway Perkins, after they met on Tinder in October 2015 and went on a date.
Through his attorney, Ravenel has denied the allegations, but he decided not to go to New York to tape the fifth season reunion episodes. According to People Magazine, sources say the network has not made a decision about Ravenel’s future on the reality show.
New episodes of Southern Charm air Thursday nights on Bravo.
