Southern Charm fans have been hyped up for a dramatic love triangle with Austen Kroll, Madison LeCroy, and John Pringle, but in real time, fans want to know what’s going on with Austen, Madison, Kristin Cavallari, and Kristin’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Jay Cutler. That’s a reality TV crossover none of us ever expected.
Most likely it’s just a bunch of thirsty people looking for that “Wait, how do they know each other?” attention (which I am clearly giving them), but some people wonder if there’s anything romantic going on.
The Instagram account Comments by Bravo shared a screenshot of Austen commenting on one of Kristin’s social media posts with “See you next week! Keep breaking the internet in the meantime!” To add to the intrigue, Madison commented on a photo that Jay posted with Shannon Ford. Shannon was on Very Cavallari until Kristin fired her and they are not friends. So, Jay hanging with Shannon is very likely a move to get a rise out of Kristin.
Well, here comes Madison, according to Comments by Bravo, Madison commented “See y’all soon” on Jay’s Instagram post. Wait, how do they know each other? Is there some sort of love square/love pentagon emerging?

Madison told Entertainment Tonight, “I don’t know Shannon in a sense of personal, like, we don’t hang out or anything like that — especially during this — but there was a point where I was calling to invite her to Austen’s party and things like that.” But, this wasn’t Shannon’s photo, it was Jay’s picture with Shannon in it.
Madison continued, “So, we talked via Instagram and, you know, she’s an influencer and we would chat here and there, and I actually, I really do like her. I think I like her personality. I think she’s great. So, I don’t know. I wasn’t trying to start any drama or anything like that.” No one believes that, but I don’t want watching this all play out. Pass me some popcorn.
Madison claims that she is tired of people asking her about Austen, yet she’s on a reality TV show that she joined as Austen’s girlfriend. If she doesn’t want to be associated with Austen, that wasn’t the best path to take.
So what does Madison have to say about the possibility of Kristin and Austen dating? She remarked, “If he was actually dating her, I don’t think he would be sending me song lyrics at midnight. She’s a bombshell, like, I don’t you know — I know that they are friends. I think he’s trying to get under my skin, which is fine. And, like, honestly? If he can pull her, go for it. Knock yourself out. I’d be shocked.”

When it comes down to it, Madison thinks, he “was just trying to get [a rise], get a comment out of” her by hanging with Kristin.
Kristin, Austen, Craig Conover, and Kristin’s friend/hair stylist Justin Anderson hung out recently, which involve documenting some cringe-worthy dancing on Instagram Live. Kristin responded to the dating speculation via Instagram Story, per Us Weekly.
Kristin quipped, “I didn’t realize I wasn’t allowed to have FRIENDS that are guys.” Considering that Kristin was just photographed in Mexico
by paparazzi she probably called herself making out with comedian Jeff Dye, it’s fair to assume that she and Austen are actually just friends.
