While many of your favorite Bravo shows are on hiatus, a lot of the stars need to compensate for lack of attention. This might be why everyone and their mother now have podcasts. It’s an outlet that provides a platform to openly discuss politics, environmental issues, or in Bravo’s case, what random people are in bed together.
That’s why we’re lucky to have the Pillows and Beer podcast courtesy of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover and Austen Kroll. If you think that sounds too good to be true, prepare for your mind to be blown. Recently Vanderpump Rules new mom, Lala Kent, joined Craigy and Austen to chat. How much star power can one podcast handle? Lala and the boys teamed up to dish on life, love, and the pursuit of Madison LeCroy’s happiness.
Who would have thought that the drama from Madison LeCroy sphere of influence would reverb far beyond the reaches of Southern Charm. That Austen Kroll wouldn’t be the only one affected by her siren song. In the spirit of nautical tales, it never ends well to follow that tune.
Clearly, Madison has further ambitions. That became very clear during the Season 7 reunion, when she revealed her latest target. And now that the full effect of Madison’s “friendship” with A-Rod is front page celebrity news, Cameran Eubanks wanted to share her thoughts about Austen and Madison.
The latest season of Southern Charm showed off an entirely new vibe. OGs like Cameran Eubanks, Thomas Ravenel and more were out. The show confronted racism, the pandemic and everything in between. The only thing that stayed the same was Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll’s turbulent relationship, and it escalated to new heights.
By now we know Madison has a thing for athletes. She’s allegedly FaceTimed with Jennifer Lopez’s fiance Alex Rodriguez and apparently signed an NDA about it. We also know that she has a thing for Jay Cutler, and that thing seems to be making Austen jealous. She was super pissed when Austen started hanging out with Jay’s ex Kristin Cavalleri, and thus began one of the messiest relationship webs in reality TV history.
Shep Rose has been a mainstay on Southern Charm since the beginning. He’s a womanizer, a party animal, and a bit of a late bloomer.
And now Shep can add author to the list, as he just released his book Average Expectations: Lessons in Lowering the Bar, about his life, relationships, and his time on the show. I haven’t gotten my hands on a copy yet. However, I’m not exactly dying for life advice from a 40-year-old frat boy who has family money. But at least he knows what it takes to make good TV, unlike Landon Clements.
Apparently, Braunwyn Windham-Burke isn’t the only one who calls the paparazzi on herself. Southern Charm cast member Madison LeCroy seemingly employs the same attention-seeking habit.
It’s not as if there’s a regular influx of paparazzi photos of any other Southern Charm cast member walking around in Charleston since the show started. It’s not exactly a common occurrence there. Nevertheless, a camera crew for Daily Mail just happened to be following Madison while she was in (an admittedly adorable) activewear look with perfectly-styled hair. What. A. Coincidence.
Season 7 of Southern Charm introduced viewers to a (slightly) more mature Shep Rose. But frankly, his reputation could only go up after Season 6.
Who could forget all of the harsh words he’s shared with Madison Lecroy? Or his never-ending antics to break her and Austen Kroll up, such as inviting the girls from the infamous threesome video to a party the couple was at. And don’t even get us started on the video of him berating a homeless person.
Another day, another bombshell about the Madison Lecroy–Alex Rodriguez–Jennifer Lopez scandal. This time, it was dropped by none other than Southern Charm mainstay Shep Rose.
On the show, Bravo kept a lot of the details vague regarding allegations that Madison was secretly FaceTiming a married baseball player. However, that’s not stopping Shep from spilling what happened — even when the cameras were rolling.
