Last season’s Southern Charm reunion was all about the feud between Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel’s girlfriend Ashley Jacobs, but a lot has changed since then. Bravo fired Ravenel last fall, and then he and Jacobs split, but somehow the California nurse managed to work her way into Season 6 even though the cast wanted nothing to do with her. For part one of the Season 6 reunion, Bravo was kind enough to leave Jacobs out, but will they extend that kindness to part two?
As Bustle brilliantly pointed out, all Eliza Limehouse did during her first season as a full-time cast member was tell Jacobs not to attend any events, but at the same time, she would tell her everything she needed to know about how to crash them.

It makes perfect sense for fans to wonder if Jacobs will crash the reunion, but it looks like there is no reason to be worried. Jacobs’ name does not appear in the Part Two reunion description, and she doesn’t have a relationship with any of the cast members. There are no loose ends to tie up, so there is no reason for her to make an appearance.
During the season finale, Patricia Altschul actually hired extra security just in case Jacobs showed up to her party (she did), and kicked her out immediately, leaving Jacobs in tears. She has also moved out of Charleston and back to Santa Barbara, California, earlier this year and her social media posts never indicated she flew to New York for the reunion taping.
The taping took place on August 1st, and Jacobs posted a pic from the Santa Barbara Zoo on that day.
Jacobs says that her return to Southern Charm this season kept her life interesting and there was never a dull moment. She added that she doesn’t know what to do with herself now that it’s over.

“I’m like, ‘Where else can I stir some hearts and drama. What man can I annoy the hell out of now?’” said Jacobs. “Well, compared to last season, it was really easy. Even though it wasn’t great, compared to last season, I was like, ‘Ooh, this is nice. I can handle this.’ I feel that there was some closure on my end. And that brought me some peace.”
Finally, it looks like the era of Ashley Jacobs has come to an end. Let’s all raise our glasses in celebration.
Part two of the Season 6 Southern Charm reunion airs Wednesday, August 28th on Bravo.
