The latest episode of Southern Charm ended with Kathryn Dennis ripping into Ashely Jacobs after a season of venomous remarks and vicious feuds. At one point, Dennis even called Jacobs a “complete a**hole” when she refused to apologize for her hateful comments.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Jacobs’ boyfriend, Thomas Ravenel was banned from the reunion after multiple women claimed he sexually assaulted them. Instead, his doting girlfriend went in his place, ready to face the cast in New York City.
Jacobs began by telling Andy Cohen that the assault allegations were “humbling” for Ravenel, and that she expected her man to be cleared in the investigation.
“It is all hearsay. He’s not been charged with anything, these are just allegations. It used to be ‘You’re innocent until proven guilty,’ and now you’re guilty until proven innocent,” Jacobs said.
Despite the entire cast trying to tell her that Ravenel even treated her poorly, Jacobs dug her heels in and defended him.
“What are you doing with this douchebag?” Cohen asked her from a viewer’s question about Ravenel flirting with Dennis during the season.
“It didn’t bother me. I was standing right there,” Jacobs said.
“He was leering at her, I thought it was bulls**t on his part,” Shep Rose said.
“He said ‘I love you’ in French to Kathryn,” Cameran Eubanks pointed out to Jacobs.
“That’s got to affect you, you’re a human being,” Rose said.
“It doesn’t. I wish I could say that. I’m so secure in this relationship. I’m not insecure, I know he’s coming home to me,” she replied.
In a long white dress and bright red lipstick, Jacobs told Cohen about her dramatic weight loss. “The pressure of filming made me nervous. Afterwards I had a hard time eating. It caused a lot of stress and I put a lot of pressure on myself. People saying I’m the villain. It didn’t happen overnight.”
Jacobs told the incredulous group that her biggest regret from the season was not attacking Dennis, but “going on that shopping trip with her Patricia Altschul when I should have gone with Kathryn.”
Despite her attempt to divert the conversation, the cast continued to fixate on her shady relationship with Ravenel. They tried to prove to Jacobs he had a history of bad behavior, and brought up his argument with Chelsea Meissner.
“Whenever he gets completely unhinged and the mask falls, and he turns into this person where you just see black eyes and he’s foaming at the mouth,” Dennis said about the father of her children.
“He says the same thing about you,” Jacobs retorted.
“It’s not normal for a man to speak to a woman like that,” Eubanks said to Jacobs, but she leapt to his defense.
“He was worried about where we were going to stay. I was getting kicked out of the house, and he was protecting me,” replied Jacobs.
“There’s nothing you can say to defend him,”Meissner said.
“It was ok for him to say ‘Shut the f**k’ up to Chelsea?” Austen Kroll asked.
“No,” Jacobs admitted.
“Have you ever seen anyone else talk to a girl like that ever?” Conover asked, and again she replied “No."
“Has he talked to you like that? That concerns me,” Meissner said, and Eubanks said she thought Jacobs was “terrified of him.”
Jacobs tried to turn the conversation to Dennis’ friends “holding her accountable,” and said she almost missed her mandatory drug testing.
“It is none of your f**king business to begin with. You really are so out of touch with the fact that you’re a complete a**hole,” Dennis slammed.
Jacobs finally admitted that she was “being a b***h,” and tried to apologize to Dennis.
“I can’t defend myself because my behavior was indefensible. It was frighteningly scary. I should have pulled you aside and had a private conversation,” she said. “I picked the worst time the worst place. I apologize that I didn’t pull you aside if I had these feelings.”
But Dennis didn’t accept the apology: “I’m glad you did what you did because you showed your true colors.”
Dennis pointed out that Jacobs “said even worse things to me than you said in Hilton Head,” and Jacobs apologized again, saying she “felt attacked” by Dennis at the season finale party when she said Dennis was an “egg donor.”
“As a mother, f**k you for saying that. It’s not ok to say to any mother. To just keep saying it is so hurtful and disrespectful. I just feel bad for you that you can’t even see that. I hope that one day if you are ever a mother I hope you learn this. This is so hurtful. You’re around them and you say these things about me and to me.”
Dennis laid down the law with Jacobs. “As their mother, I would like you to not be around my children. Because I feel uncomfortable with it. You are an unkind hateful sadistic person. And unfortunately, if you need to have this message delivered to you like this I will deliver it. Thank you. That’s all I have to say to you. This has been so frustrating. Done.”
But Dennis did try to warn Jacobs that her relationship with Ravenel was unhealthy.
“I feel bad for you. I’m watching you be me years ago. I’m watching it unfold in front of me,” she said, and Eubanks echoed her sentiment.
“He’s been not a nice person. I think you’re telling yourself these things. Save yourself and go back to California and give yourself a nice life while you can.”
Even Conover said: “You don’t look healthy. You’re exactly where Kathryn was,” and Jacobs asked if it was an “intervention.”
“Charleston is a small town and from what we hear y’all do not have a happy relationship,” Eubanks told Jacobs. “From what we hear it’s pretty volatile and not good.”
“And not your fault,” Conover told her.
Cohen described the story Meissner told of Ravenel throwing leftovers at Jacobs outside a restaurant.
“No, he did not throw it at me,” Jacobs said. “He was upset because I was leaving and I handed him the food and I was being a brat and I handed him the food. It was my fault. I was being a brat.”
“You just took the blame for Thomas yelling at you,” Conover pointed out.
“It’s a red flag Ashley,” Eubanks warned. She also told Jacobs his actions were “F***ed up. That’s not normal. He’s baiting you.”
But Jacobs refused to admit there were cracks in the relationship and tearfully told a producer that she was not ready to “throw in the towel” with Ravenel.
As Radar exclusively reported, Jacobs headed to California the day before the final reunion episode aired, without Ravenel.
