‘Southern Charm’ Season Five: Thomas Ravenel’s New Girlfriend Begins Filming, Meets Kathryn Dennis?

Southern Charm Season 5 has reportedly begun filming in Charleston, South Carolina, and there may be a major feud brewing.

According to a new report, Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis’ ongoing drama is expected to continue through the new season, and now, as they continue to butt heads over custody of their two children, three-year-old Kensington and 23-months-old Saint Julien, a new factor has been thrown into the mix.

On November 1, Radar Online shared a report in which they revealed that 32-year-old Ashley Jacobs, Thomas Ravenel’s latest flame, has begun filming scenes for Southern Charm.

“Filming is definitely something Ashley is getting used to,” an insider told Radar Online.

Although the two women are sure to come to blows at some point due to Kathryn Dennis’ up-and-down relationship with Thomas Ravenel, the source said that Dennis and Ashley Jacobs are getting along “pretty well” at this point in time. The outlet also noted that Ravenel and his new leading lady are “more in love than ever.”

While things between Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel have been highly contentious during past seasons, the former couple is said to be in a good place as they embark on production on Southern Charm Season 5. As the insider explained, Dennis and Ravenel agreed that their co-parenting relationship isn’t about them; it’s about their children. Meanwhile, Jacobs is reportedly respectful of their relationship as the parents of two children.

“Ashley hopes that they can always remain cordial,” the insider concluded.

Radar Online noted in September that Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs would begin starring alongside one another on Southern Charm Season 5 following a whirlwind romance that reportedly began in May. As the outlet explained to readers, Jacobs transferred her California nursing license to South Carolina and moved to Ravenel’s hometown to be closer to him at the end of this past summer.

While Ravenel and Jacobs have reportedly been dating since May, Radar Online claimed that he hooked up with his ex-girlfriend, Dennis, earlier this year after filming the Southern Charm Season 4 reunion special.

The two were in a heated custody battle over their 3-year-old daughter and 23-month-old son at the time, but now Ravenel has full custody of their children.
