The Southern Charm reunion special aired last night and fans were surprised to learn that Thomas Ravenel was not in attendance because of an accusation that he had raped the nanny that had cared for his children. That left viewers wondering about the status of Thomas and Ashley Jacobs’ relationship, which was on shaky ground after the season finale.
Kathryn Dennis revealed that she knew the nanny who was accusing Thomas and she had been working with the family for two years. At this point, Thomas hasn’t been charged or found guilty, which means that these are allegations.
This all came out after the cast had filmed the final episode of Southern Charm’s Season 5, where Kathryn and Ashley Jacobs got into a fight. No matter what Kathryn did, she was attacked by Ashley who was clearly insecure about her role in Thomas’ life.
Ashley kept attacking Dennis to make herself feel better, and viewers were horrified that Thomas wasn’t doing more to protect the mother of his children. As the finale ended, fans learned that Thomas and Ashley were still together, but that Thomas and Kathryn were hanging out more. So, what’s the deal now that the reunion has wrapped and the cast hasn’t filmed for about a month?
It’s hard to say what is going on, as Thomas Ravenel has made his tweets private. In addition, Ashley hasn’t said much on Twitter about how lovely her relationship is.
It has also been over a month since they posted photos of one another. Thomas last posted about Ashley back in May, while Ashley shared a photo of them together in early June.
In fact, it has been almost two months since Thomas even acknowledged Ashley on his Instagram account. Another interesting fact is that Ashley recently shared a photo of her in a nurse uniform, which means she’s back at work.
She always gushed about her love for nursing and how she wanted to go back to work. It sounds like she’s back at work, possibly because she has to as Thomas isn’t paying her bills anymore.
Thomas and Ashley haven’t addressed their relationship status on social media for their Southern Charm fans, but Thomas is focusing more on his kids and sharing photos of himself and Kathryn.
There’s no definitive answer at the moment, so it’s possible they are taking a break to see if they are truly meant to be. The Southern Charm cast clearly doesn’t think so.
