Former Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel turned himself into Charleston, South Carolina, police earlier this week after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of 2nd-degree assault and battery in relation to a sexual assault case. And now, Ashley Jacobs and Kathryn Dennis are speaking out about Ravenel and his arrest.
After a fan mentioned a tweet that Ravenel had shared last weekend implying he and Jacobs had split again, the California nurse responded by revealing their current relationship status.
“[Thomas] just said he doesn’t date people with zero integrity?? Did y’all have a fight? I thought you were back together?” the person asked Jacobs.
“Huh! Well we’re dating so must mean I have ‘some’ integrity,” Ashley responded.
Ravenel also tweeted “perhaps” when someone asked him if there was “no more trashley.”
In another Instagram comment, Jacobs responded to a fan who told her to hold her head up after the news of Ravenel’s arrest broke. She simply wrote, “Thank you,” and added a red heart emoji.
While Ashley Jacobs was responding to fans comments and questions, Dennis — who is the mother of Ravenel’s two children — released what appeared to be a statement about her ex’s legal situation.
Dennis’ response to Ravenel’s arrest was a cryptic tweet that revealed how the Southern Charm cast felt about the news. “People are on the side of the road with signs saying #believesurvivors in mount pleasant,” Dennis wrote.
After his arrest Tuesday morning, police released Ravenel from jail after the court granted him a $20,000 personal recognizance bond. The sexual assault allegations against him come from his former nanny, Dawn. Earlier this year, she claimed that Ravenel raped her, and she also says she told Dennis about what happened before she reported the incident to police.
According to People Magazine, the cast of Southern Charm is relieved that they don’t have to deal with Ravenel on the show anymore. After his arrest, Bravo officially announced that the former South Carolina state treasurer would not be back for Season 6.
Now, continue to stand for what’s right, & do NOT cast Ashley Jacobs next season. If you need proof as to why, we have it. Although last season alone & the social media attacks should be enough. I promise you, WE WILL NOT WATCH IF SHE’s CAST.

An insider says that Ravenel was friends with the cast at first, but things changed over the years after non-stop lies and manipulation. They weren’t happy with how he treated Kathryn Dennis, but the accusations from the nanny were the last straw.
The source also claims that Ravenel disgusted so many of the female cast members, that after the nanny’s accusations they kept their distance because he is “toxic.”
Thomas Ravenel’s next scheduled court date is November 16th.
New episodes of Southern Charm will return to Bravo in 2019.
