Days after the former Southern Charm star, 56, and his ex-girlfriend, 34, dined with friends and posed for a suspicious Instagram photo, a source has revealed new details about their night together and confirmed their relationship status.
“It was a fun night and dinner with friends and they toasted with champagne when the ball dropped,” the source explained to Us Weekly on January 4.
Although the magazine’s insider said Thomas would love to rekindle his romance with Ashley, she isn’t on board with getting back together with the former politician and prefers to date someone her own age.
“If Thomas had his way, they would be back together, but Ashley is at the point where she wants to be married, wants to have children and wants someone in a situation where it’s their ‘first’ too,” the source explained. “She won’t go back to Thomas and won’t be with Thomas in a romantic way again.”
Instead, the insider continued, Thomas and Ashley will continue to “be in each other’s lives as long as they have mutual friends.”
As Southern Charm fans may have heard, Ashley was recently caught filming scenes for the upcoming season with her co-stars, despite having previously told her Instagram audience that she was unwilling to return. As for Thomas, he was fired by Bravo TV in September 2018 after being arrested on charges related to a sexual assault.
Southern Charm season six will premiere on Bravo TV sometime later this year.
