If Winter House is proving anything to me, it’s that Austen Kroll cannot be in a grown-up relationship. We all saw the toxicity between him and Madison LeCroy play out — it’s almost documented too well. But now, Austen is a single man and showing his true colors. He completely led on Lindsay Hubbard and embarrassed her on live TV, yet is trying to turn the blame around on her (gaslighting, anyone?) Meanwhile, the Southern Charm star is flaunting his fling with Ciara Miller on the show. Like, come on dude? Why do you put yourself in these positions?
The cast of the Summer House and Southern Charm mashup has been very vague about their relationship statuses these days (aside from the new Bravo It couple Paige DeSorbo and Craig Conover who are madly in love). Linds and Carl Radke are rumored to have rekindled their romance, even though neither will fess up to it. Maybe they’re saving that for next season of Summer House.
Apparently, Austen decided to jump in on the teasing train and tell People about his current relationship with Ciara. “Yes, we are both single,” he said. “You never say never. Craig thinks I’m going to end up with her.” Of course Craigy thinks that — he wants to be able to double date with Austen since that CLEARLY wasn’t going down with Madison. But Paige and Ciara are besties like Austen and Craig — it’s a perfect match-up in Craig’s mind.
Austen says that Ciara was in Charleston recently, but didn’t film for Southern Charm. While they’re still in touch, Austen says fans will have to wait and see why the pair left Vermont single. “There’s still so much left to happen,” he teased. Sounds like Austen’s sketchy behavior might catch up to him. Like, Ciara, girl, WHY AUSTEN? I don’t ship it. Maybe she should give Luke Gulbranson another shot, as his hot lumberjack vibes on Winter House are doing something for me. Maybe Winter is just his good season. Redemption for Luke.
