Hurricane Flo blew through South Carolina hard in September2018. Southern Charm was supposed to start filming but instead everyone was evacuating. All the cast headed off to different places and straggled back to town when they felt like it. Shep Rose went on some sort of tour of the country. Then he got stuck in Dallas or somewhere for a few extra days. Speaking of Shep Rose, on the upcoming season it’s pretty much all girl power and love with the female cast now that Ashley Jacobs is gone. That is probably why production kept on trying to get some conflict by bringing Ashley in as the stooge, But the girls weren’t having it.

They were still together as of Thanksgiving, but that was early on in Southern Charm filming and the streets are saying that Shep Rose interfered in their relationship in some way. I take that to mean that Shep Rose put the moves on her. Because Shep Rose is an asshole like that. Shep Rose has always been a dick to Craig Conover so I think we will see a closer friendship season with Craig Conover and Austen Kroll... at least after the Madison LeCroy situation happens (if that is indeed what happens) and the two bond over what a piece of garbage Shep Rose is. He’s really well suited for Ashley Jacobs though. Ashley Jacobs is the female version of Shep Rose.
Craig Conover has been dating a girl named Larissa on and off. I don’t think it is that serious but I haven’t been paying it much attention. That said, whatever drama occurred between the guys seems to have resolved itself. They all seemed fine together at the finale. (more on that in part four)
This brings us to the fox hunt that had everyone losing their minds. Everyone except Patricia Atlschul and Whitney Sudler-Smith were in attendance. Production sent Ashley Jacobs as a guest of Eliza Limehouse. The fox hunt was at the Limehouse Plantation. The actual name of the plantation is Airy Hall Plantation. I just call it the Limehouse Plantation so you know what I am talking about. The cast didn’t know Ashley would be there. But, shouldn’t they have guessed after the last time they were there? The whole fox hunt was likely added after production realized that Kathryn had a previous commitment that conflicted with the first plantation outing. Again with the whole, “it didn’t work the first time but let’s just keep on trying” strategy.
The cast didn’t react to it as calmly to Ashley’s Jacobs presence as they did the first time. Thank God for the mobile bar. They were pissed at Aaron Rothman for pushing the same storyline hoping to get a different result. They wanted to showcase other storylines they had going on instead. This is the third time that he has tried to trot out the despicable Ashley Jacobs. This disrupted the natural flow of the series. All of Ashley Jacob’s appearances are completely unnatural and unnecessary. They result in nothing more than annoying the actual cast. Ashley Jacobs was mostly ignored once again until production insisted that Kathryn Dennis speak to her.
Ashley tried to apologize to Kathryn. Kathryn supposedly listened to her and let her hug her at the end in hopes that would give Rothman the closure he wanted and end things once and for all. But it didn’t. Strike three for production.
