Ashley Jacobs is a reality television star as well as a former nurse. She is most known for her appearance on the Bravo show “Southern Charm” during the fifth season. During this time, she also had a love relationship with politician Thomas Ravenel.
According to sources, she has a net worth of more than $200,000 as of mid-2022, achieved from success in her many pursuits. Her television career offered her a lot of exposure, which led to a lot of opportunities. It is believed that her riches would expand as she continues her pursuits.
Ashley was born on December 1, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California, USA. Ashley’s biography prior to her appearance on “Southern Charm” is unknown, as she hasn’t revealed much about her family. There are no specifics about her background or education, although it is known that she grew up with a younger sister and worked as a licensed nurse before debuting on television.
She graduated from college in 2008 and began working at Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital. Every year, the hospital admits about 1,500 patients and receives over 18,000 emergency visits. The hospital, which has 20 patient rooms, 52 private rooms for varied medical care, and a Wound Management Center, is relatively new. They also offer an Orthopedics section, multiple surgery suites, 3D mammography, and a Healing Arts section with over 200 pieces of local artwork for inspiration. During Ashley’s stay there, she frequently cared for individuals who had suffered catastrophic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.
Ashley’s personal life is reported to have been in a relationship with Thomas Ravenel throughout the fifth season of “Southern Charm,” having begun their relationship soon before production began. According to the show, former “Southern Charm” star Landon Clements introduced them, but this was proven incorrect when the two met at a Cinco de Mayo party. Many people have criticized their relationship, with many claiming that it was contrived by the show to create a storyline, especially because the two abruptly dissolved their relationship once the season concluded.
Thomas Ravenel is the son of former South Carolina Congressman Arthur Ravenel Jr. and a former State Treasurer. In the 2014 South Carolina Senate election, he ran as an independent candidate. Prior to entering politics, he focused on commercial real estate, establishing the Ravenel Development Corporation. He has been running for politics since 2004; two years later, he ran for State Treasurer against nine-time incumbent Grady Patterson, defeating him and taking over the seat for a term.
He was indicted on federal cocaine distribution charges in 2007, with charges alleging that he purchased fewer than 500 grams of cocaine through an intermediary. As a result, he was removed from his position as state treasurer and placed in a rehabilitation facility. He then resigned as Treasurer, and Rep. Converse Chellis served out the remainder of his tenure. He was sentenced to ten months in federal prison after completing a rehabilitation program in Arizona. Since then, he’s mostly worked in the background, assisting other politicians with their campaigns.
Jacob’s reputation skyrocketed once she was cast in the television series “Southern Charm.” It’s a reality show that premiered in 2014 and follows the lives of numerous socialites in Charleston, South Carolina. The show is well-known for its coverage of southern culture as well as the region’s political history. They’ve covered various historical sites as well as several politicians, including Ravenel. Mikell House and the Lewisfield Plantation are two locations that have been covered. It is notable, like many reality series, for the continual turnover of cast members, with only Craig Conover and Cameran Eubanks remaining on the show during its entire run.
The show aired for six seasons and was so popular that it spawned a spin-off series called “Southern Charm Savannah,” which debuted in 2017 and follows the same premise but is based in Savannah, Georgia. Another spin-off, “Southern Charm New Orleans,” followed, as did another show starring Shep Rose, “relationship.” During the show’s fifth season, she appeared as a recurrent cast member and was portrayed as a villain. She then returned as a guest for the sixth season.
This is only one of the numerous issues Ravenel is presently dealing with, as multiple women have come forward with allegations of sexual assault by him in 2018; investigations into the charges are still ongoing. She, like many other television personalities, is quite active online through social media profiles, particularly on Instagram, where she has over 145,000 followers. She shares a lot of personal images on her Instagram account, as well as updates to her followers, like how she returned to California following her stint on “Southern Charm.” She is also close friends with Landon Clements, who is also involved with the show.
