Months after telling her Instagram audience she was not willing to return, Ashley reunited with her co-stars, including Shep Rose, Craig Conover, Cameran Eubanks, Chelsea Messier, and the show’s guest star Eliza Limehouse. Ashley and Eliza are reportedly friends.
Below is a photo of the outing which was shared on Twitter by the Bravo Boy account.

In addition to the filming session seen above, Ashley also reportedly took part in production weeks ago with Eliza during a fox hunt, which was allegedly arranged to shock viewers. As fans of Southern Charm will recall, Kathryn and Patricia Altschul both previously assured their Twitter audiences that a return from Ashley was out of the question.
“Ashley has been desperate to film again. She didn’t move back to California after she and Thomas broke up. She stayed in Charleston hoping to be back on the show,” the source explained.
As for Thomas, whose relationship with Ashley ended last August, he’s said to be supportive of her Southern Charm return.
“Thomas is happy that Ashley is filming. He is completely supportive of her doing this,” the insider said.
Although Ashley has long been a villain of the series, the source went on to say that fans will soon be seeing a very different side of the nurse.
“Ashley isn’t coming back as crazy Ashley. You’re going to see a tamer version of Ashley. She’s only filmed a few scenes, but she is getting paid a very minimal amount to appear. She is not a cast member, she is just being used for drama on the show,” the source revealed.
