We’re off to the races with Southern Charm Season 8 and the tensions down in Charleston are higher than ever. Naomie Olindo is back in town fresh off of a break-up (and a rebound hook-up with Craig Conover). Craigy is offish with Summer House’s Paige DeSorbo, but his relationship with Austen Kroll and Shep Rose is on the rocks. Of course, we have Kathryn Dennis in the mix to stir the pot and cause her own brand of mess as a series OG.
Madison LeCroy is back and in an entirely new place in her life. She’s found her Budweiser who she’s keeping far away from the cameras. She’s also booked and busy, this time without the need for press from the Alex Rodriguez of it all. Hey, Madison has even found a way to mend the fences with Craig. She’s totally turned the page.
Thankfully, Madison has finally moved on from Austen, who is perpetually up to no good. Austen’s behavior on Summer House pretty much solidified that he’s a trainwreck. Now that he’s back to his home base on Bravo, he’s also back to feuding with his savage ex.
Madison decided to celebrate the premiere of Southern Charm Season 8 with some pettiness toward Austen. What else do you expect at this point? She posted a clip on Instagram of her entrance into Kathryn’s birthday party from the show. It included her awkward reunion with Austen, who claims he’d bet a million dollars that his ex would show up. “Do you have a million to bet?” Madison clapped back without skipping a beat. It made Austen sweat, but Madison has no regrets for ending things for good. “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em… Know when to fold ’em,” she captioned the post.
Since Austen is Austen, he couldn’t resist a trivial back and forth with Madison. In his Instagram story (captured by Queens of Bravo), Austen posted a video of himself floating in a river with the Kenny Rogers’ song “The Gambler” playing in the background. In case you’re unfamiliar with country classics, that’s the song Madison quoted in her caption. To double-down on his shade, Austen made his own caption aimed at his ex. “In honor of 11 seconds of airtime,” he wrote. Shady, shady. Some things change but when it comes to the toxic king and queen of Charleston, some things will always stay the same.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK AUSTEN OR MADISON HAD THE BETTER CLAP BACK? ARE YOU SHOCKED TO SEE THESE TWO STILL FIGHTING ON SOUTHERN CHARM?
