The current season of Southern Charm shows Thomas Ravenel pursuing Landon Clements. Landon, however, has expressed that she’s hesitant to get into a relationship with Thomas given his drama with Kathryn Dennis, with whom he has two young children with. Apparently, viewers won’t end up seeing Landon get into a romantic relationship with Thomas by the end of the season, or if she did, they have since broken up, for Landon recently confirmed that Thomas is now dating a nurse from California.
On Saturday, Landon posted a photo of herself sitting between another woman and Thomas in a restaurant. Landon shared that they were enjoying tequila drinks. Landon also identified the other woman as Ashley Jacobs.
Did Ashley hang out with Landon and Thomas as the third wheel? As it turns out, no. A viewer left a comment stating that Thomas is dating the blonde woman, Ashley, in the photo. According to the viewer, Thomas posted about Ashley a while ago but then deleted it.
“jeremygarbin_readpoe: @dhhuizar Thomas is dating the blonde in the pic, Ashley. He posted about it/her awhile ago but then he deleted it”
Landon responded to confirm that Thomas is indeed dating Ashley. Landon explained that Thomas deleted his post about her because he wants to protect her from mean comments.
Is Landon jealous that Thomas is now with another woman? It doesn’t seem so, for Landon also shared that Ashley is “rad” and that if Thomas is smart, he would propose to her real fast.
“alandonclements: @jeremygarbin_readpoe Yes, because everyone has an opinion and says mean things; he’s just protecting her. She is rad- if he’s smart he’d put a ring on it real fast.”
It seems that Thomas now wants everyone to know that he is indeed in a new relationship. On Monday, Thomas posted a photo of himself with Ashley. The photo shows Thomas cozying up to Ashley as she takes their selfie.
So who is Ashley? On her Instagram profile, she states that she’s a registered nurse from Santa Barbara. Her Instagram profile also shows multiple photos of herself hanging out with Thomas on both sides of the country. One photo, posted a week ago, shows her, with her arm around Thomas’ neck, seductively posing next to Thomas outside the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara. The next photo in the slideshow shows Ashley and Thomas, who has his hand on Ashley’s waist, enjoying some drinks by the fireside with Landon and another woman.
Another photo shows Ashley with Thomas in Charleston with another one of Thomas’ Southern Charm co-stars, Whitney Sudley-Smith.
The next day, Ashley posted a photo of herself cuddling up to Thomas in Charleston.
Ashley’s Instagram page also shows a lot of photos of her enjoying her baby nephew and expressing a love for children.
If Ashley Jacobs’ relationship with Thomas Ravenel becomes more serious and Thomas does, as Landon Clements recommends, end up marrying her, she will become the stepmother of Thomas’ two children with Kathryn Dennis, Kensie, 3, and son Saint, 18 months.
On Monday night’s Southern Charm episode, Kathryn talked with JD and Elizabeth Madison, close friends of Thomas’ and godparents of Kathryn and Thomas’ children, about the state of her relationship with Thomas. Kathryn revealed that after nine months of no communication, she just received a text from Thomas asking for a meeting. When Liz asked Kathryn if she wanted to meet Thomas, Kathryn said that she did for the sake of the children but expressed fear that Thomas wasn’t being genuine.
“I want to, of course, for my children. I’m nervous. I always feel like he has a motive or something like that, you know?”
When JD pointed out that Kathryn and Thomas wouldn’t want to continue celebrating the children’s big life events, such as Saint’s upcoming birthday, separately, Kathryn said that in a perfect world, she and Thomas would celebrate things together. JD and Liz advised Kathryn to take small steps with Thomas and to treat her get-togethers with Thomas like a business deal.
In her confessional interview, Kathryn agreed that perhaps it is time for her to meet with Thomas.
“I’ve worked really hard to get to a place where I’m okay with the fact that Thomas and I do not communicate because it isn’t good for us. But maybe it’s time.”
In an earlier episode, Kathryn confessed that she lost custody of the children after failing a drug test and hadn’t seen them in a while. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Jennifer Snowden, Kathryn’s former friend and one of the show’s recurring cast members, claimed last month that Kathryn still can’t see her children because she’s still doing drugs.
A preview for the rest of the Southern Charm season shows Thomas Ravenel sharing that he received an “apologetic” letter from Kathryn Dennis but that he’s not sure if she’s being sincere or if it’s “a huge manipulation.” The preview also shows Kathryn, during a group gathering that includes her enemy Landon Clements, telling Thomas that she loved him a lot and will always love him.
“Thomas look me in the eyes. I loved you so much and I will always love you.”
