Y’all keep asking me about what is going on in Charleston regarding the cast of Southern Charm. I thought I made that clear with the last few posts including the reunion posts. However, Ashley loves to keep her name in the press, which is why I ignore her antics. So she gave an interview saying that she and Thomas had broken up, I ignored it. While Kate Casey’s podcast is great and a trustworthy site, her guest is not. Today Fitz News posted photos of them together at lunch on Edisto. Why is this shocking news?
This is not a romantic relationship. It’s a business deal. Ashley has Thomas paying her rent through the end of October. We will see what happens then. I’m sure she wants to ride this out as long as she can, but I think that will be the official end of the deal. She’s going to stay in that “free” (ew) apartment near the beach for as long as she can and will eventually return to her mother if she will have her, or to Vegas where her alleged line of work is legal. Thomas wants to continue to stir up controversy now while production makes decisions on next year’s casting. This will have zero affection on his release by Haymaker.
This is going to be a long irrelevant back and forth situation where they try to get publicity before option pick ups go out in a few weeks. It’s all for nothing. Thomas will not be getting one because his options are expired and no further contract will be offered. Similarly, Ashley has no option to pick up because she had no employment and only signed a release. She will not be back either. But she is going to ride it out to the bitter end and will be gone just in time for Halloween.
Do we really care whether or not these two fuckwits are together or apart? They are off the show. Irrelevant. Not worth discussing. And until Thomas Ravenel gets arrested, I don’t plan to play along with their little “are they or aren’t they shenanigans.” Until the “video tape” goes public or these two go to full-out war trying to take each other out, I’m not interested. I expect the end to be vicious and dramatic but I don’t see any real change for the next three months.
Meanwhile, Kathryn just had her 27th birthday where here friends including Patricia, Shep and others from the cast threw her a surprise birthday party. #WINNING
