Thomas Ravenel’s girlfriend has his back.
The 55-year-old disgraced Southern Charm star isn’t participating the show’s season 5 reunion, but he still had an ally at the shoot.
Bravo’s Andy Cohen confirmed on Tuesday night that Ravenel’s girlfriend Ashley Jacobs taped the end-of-season special in New York City.

‘It was intensely dramatic, which is why I have dropped everything tonight,’ he said on the Watch What Happens Live after-show. ‘And Ashley was there. It was really something.’
Ravenel was accused of rape by two women, including his children’s former nanny, last month.
Dawn Ledwell, known to fans of the Bravo reality show as ‘Nanny Dawn’, was the second woman to come forward and accuse Ravenel of sexual assault following Ashley Perkins who claimed Ravenel sexually assaulted her mother Debbie.
Ravenel has denied the allegations.

‘Nanny Dawn’ was featured on the show caring for Ravenel’s two children with ex Kathryn Calhoun Dennis: daughter Kensie, four, and son Saint, two. Dawn claimed he attempted to kiss her after coming back from a night out with friends.
Additionally, real estate agent Ashley Perkins has alleged that Ravenel assaulted her mom Debbie Holloway Perkins after meeting him on Tinder in October 2015 and going on a last-minute first date.
Ravenel has denied the accusations through his attorney, and a source close to the network told People.com earlier this month that ‘no decision has been made yet’ about firing him from Southern Charm.
Jacobs, 32, has clashed with Dennis, 25, all season long. She posted a cryptic Instagram story on Monday night with a photo of herself in Manhattan and the caption ‘What a day!!! #ISurvived.’
