On the latest episode of Southern Charm, Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs’ relationship looked to be nearing rock bottom when she shamelessly flirted with his friends while he poured his heart out to Kathryn Dennis, his baby momma. Ravenel then confessed to Patricia Altschul that there is “an unevenness” in his relationship because he gives her more than she gives him. That’s when Altschul told Ravenel that he is dating a “gold digger.”
According to Radar Online, Ravenel said that Jacobs’ unemployment is creating resentment in their relationship. He said it would level the playing field if the hospice nurse got a job and focused on something other than him.
When he asked Jacobs why she loved him, she replied that he was a good provider, and Altschul says that translates into “you’ve got money.”

“No job. No interests. No friends. Just hanging out in an apartment that Thomas pays for. The word that comes to mind is ‘gold digger,’” said Altschul.
While at Brookfield Plantation planning a polo match and party, Ravenel and Jacobs talked about their unhappy romance. But when Jacobs mentioned that would be an ideal place to have a wedding, Ravenel quickly changed the subject.
He told Jacobs that he sees her as “a wonderful person who has a wonderful career.” But, because of the way things have been going, he feels like a sugar daddy. Jacobs started to tear up and explained that she loved Ravenel and wanted their relationship to work, but she worried that having a job would change things – and not in a good way.
She said that she worried that if she were working, he would be partying without her.
But Ravenel said that Jacobs getting a job would be a change for the better. However, things started to get heated when she responded by saying that she has worked and hustled, and she doesn’t know how it would change things if she got a job.
And that is when Ravenel dropped the bomb. “Maybe we should just call it quits,” he said.

Then, things started to get a little weird. In another scene, Jacobs talked with Shep Rose and started complaining about how miserable she was with Ravenel. Then, she shocked him when she asked Rose if he would date her if her current relationship ended.
Rose replied, “I’m not a good safe bet.”
At the same time, Ravenel was talking to Dennis, and he told her that he hasn’t had a lot of success in his personal life and has become someone he isn’t proud of. Dennis told him that there doesn’t need to be drama in his relationships, and then asked if he feels she was less psycho now that he is dating Jacobs.
The episode ended with Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs’ relationship hanging in the balance. She told him that she doesn’t want things to end because she loves him. And, Ravenel said that he still has some hope.
The Southern Charm season finale airs Thursday night on Bravo.
