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.
The current era of Southern Charm‘s main source of controversy is Madison LeCroy, Austen Kroll and their various relationships A-List celebrities (and athletes). But, true fans will never forget where it all started.
It was really the drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis that put the show on the map. It remained a central plot for seasons to come (even in his absence). And while there have been many villains in the show’s history (cough cough Ashley Jacobs), Landon Clements is definitely a name that’s hard to forget.
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.
We’ve all been on a wild ride in recent weeks that is the messy rollercoaster of Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez‘s relationship.
Rumors started swirling at the Southern Charm reunion that Madison LeCroy was secretly FaceTiming with ARod. And ever since then, the tea being spilled has just gotten hotter.
The news broke recently that Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are having relationship problems. While some people are surprised by this, I’m just surprised that it took this long for breakup gossip to surface. Apparently, they’re still hanging on to this relationship, but I just don’t get why.
ARod was having secret FaceTime interactions with Madison LeCroy from Southern Charm. She maintained that he “never physically cheated” on Jennifer. Regardless, that’s so absurdly disrespectful and embarrassing. Jennifer should have dropped him immediately when this story broke.
