Austen Kroll can stop sleeping with one eye open… Madison LeCroy is affianced. The black widow of Southern Charm had only just introduced her new man to the world on Instagram in June. Given Madison’s panache for attention grabs, it crossed people’s minds that this was just another ploy, conveniently timed around the break-up of Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez. I guess this question has now been officially answered. Grab a Trop Hop and let’s break this down.
Madison is not only known on Southern Charm for being Austen’s ex-soulmate, but also hairdresser extraordinaire to Patricia Altschul, our fabulous southern matriarch. While her relationship with Patricia has been adorable to watch, Madison’s relationship with Austen has been a toxic mess. From cheating threesomes, to drama with Shep Rose, and Madison’s conflict with Craig Conover over who Austen really liked the best.
Unfortunately, even when the relationship was over, the jabs kept coming. When Austen’s friendship with Kristin Cavallari came into the open, girlfriend wasted no time in targeting the Very Cavallari star’s husband, Jay Cutler and sharing their text messages. This earned her nothing but a big eyeroll from Kristin and the rest of us.
Madison then found herself, gleefully I would imagine, on the forefront of the ARod JLo split after rumors started floating around during the Southern Charm’s reunion show. Madison claimed that Alex never “physically cheated.” Uh-huh, I see what you did there. Tsk-tsk. She also claimed absolutely no responsibility for the split, and effectively washed her hands of the whole thing. Other than, you know, taking all the credit for the Ben Affleck and JLo reconciliation. Sure Jan. They’ll be sending you flowers any day now.
However, it seems as if Madison has finally decided to put fruity IPA’s behind her, and claim the Budweiser she’s been looking for. According to Page Six, Madison has not only left her star athlete obsession behind her, but will no longer be taunting Austen on the daily. “ ‘I am engaged! And I’m so excited because I honestly had no clue at the time,’ the “Southern Charm” star, 31, exclaimed on Amazon Live on Thursday.”
Madison has been uncharacteristically protective of this relationship from the start, claiming her fiancé, known only as “Brett“, would never film for Southern Charm. We haven’t been given any specifics about him, other than she was hesitant to commit this time around.
“LeCroy said she didn’t hesitate to accept when Brett popped the question over dinner on Oct. 8. She added that Brett had asked for Hudson’s permission, which the 8-year-old happily gave as long as he could be a part of the special moment.”
As we longtime Southern Charm viewer’s know, LeCroy is a single parent to her son, Hudson, sharing child rearing duties with her ex. Austin never seemed ‘enthusiastic’ about a potential step-father role, so it’s nice to see that Brett wants to include Hudson in the proposal and as a part of their lives together. This actually gives me more hope than anything else, for a happy ending.

Page Six pointed out that in June, Madison told US Weekly that even her, “…ex-husband [Josh Hughes] approves,” she told the mag. “My son’s father knows a lot about him through my son and my son saying that I seem happy and ‘He’s really nice to Mom’ and all these things.” So clearly the folks over there agree with me.
