Just hand Madison LeCroy a spoon. The Southern Charm cast member is always ready to stir the pot. We all know about her strange rivalry with Shep Rose. Now, she can add Craig Conover to the list of co-stars she’s offended.
On a recent Watch What Happens Live episode, Madison mentioned that Craig’s girlfriend Natalie Hegnauer slept with Austen Kroll before she got together with Craig, strongly implying that Natalie did so to get on the show. Well, pot, meet kettle. Many people have suggested that Madison used Austen to secure a spot on Southern Charm. If that’s not true, why would she make someone feel the way that she’s felt? If Madison did use Austen to be on TV, then it’s hypocritical to call out Natalie.
Madison has no remorse for mentioning this. She told Entertainment Tonight, “The thing was, I did not drop that [bomb]. Like, everybody already knew this going into it, when they started dating. Austen is the one who told me. So when I said that, I wasn’t trying to throw Craig or his girlfriend under the bus.” Sure, Madison.
Madison said, “That was going to come out. If you sleep with two of the castmates on the show and you think you’re going to slide by without that, you’re an idiot. … And if you can get past that, then by all means, knock yourself out.”
Madison claimed that she publicized the information because the guys are always talking about her personal life. So, despite what she says, she clearly was trying to throw Craig’s girlfriend under the bus.
Madison said, “I’m definitely always going to stay true.” She added, “I should probably just filter it, in a sense. I need to rein it in, but listen: When people try to attack me or anything like that, I’m ready for that. I can stand my own.” But, no one was attacking her in this instance.
She insisted, “I’m not trying to burn the house down or anything like that. I just hope that everything is resolved and we can all move forward as adults and I doubt that’s going to happen, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.”
Well, Craig is understandably annoyed by Madison’s latest outburst. He told Us Weekly, “She was really nasty for no reason” when Madison said she was “grossed out” by Natalie.

Craig said, “That’s how Natalie and I met, Austen introduced us in Aspen, [Colorado]. It was no secret that they had known each other before. Natalie has been nothing but nice to Madison. They hung out, they were friends. So what Madison did just wasn’t nice, you know? … I don’t even want to be associated with Madison anymore.”
Craig said, “Everyone else is happy for me. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this way about someone and since I’ve found someone that was so supportive.” He says that Madison “threw away” their friendship by making that comment.
Craig remarked, “It’s sad to watch [her] project and unravel in front of everyone. I mean, that’s her opinion and that’s fine. … She’s just not a nice person.”
