Southern Charm’s Austen Kroll Discusses Tension Between Girlfriend Madison LeCroy & Shep Rose

Season 6 of Southern Charm has finally descended upon us. In the premier episode we met Austen Kroll’s new(est) girlfriend, Madison LeCroy. Madison is a clone of Jessica Simpson currently Patricia Altschul’s hair stylist and friends with Naomie Olindo, so she is already familiar to the group. She is also familiar with Austen’s lies tendency to have his cake and eat it too. After walking in on her beau having dalliances with two other women, she “forgave” him and continued the relationship.

Austen was able to talk his way out of that unfortunate circumstance, I guess it helps to have a television show. He certainly cannot fall back on his ambitious career choices. But what do Austen’s close pals think of his lady friend? In the trailer for the new season, we saw Madison tell Austen she thinks Shep Rose is a “bad influence” on him. But is Shep just an easy target, or does he really have some kind of leverage over how Austen behaves?

Southern Charm Recap:

Last night’s Southern Charm was swirling with the confirmation of the “did they or didn’t they” hook-up rumors surrounding Kathryn Dennis and Whitney Sudler-Smith. Shep Rose’s love life was once again thwarted by ill-thought Instagram posts, and we got to peek inside Craig Conover’s fledgling pillow company. It doesn’t get much better than that!

The episode begins with Kathryn unable to summon Austen Kroll on any of her smart devices. Across town, Cameran Eubanks is getting some much needed relaxation at the nail salon before being interrupted by Recent College Grad who comes in like a bull in a china shop. She’s got a cooler of kombucha and she can’t stop talking about her last name and her royal status in Charleston society. However, her politician father’s affair caused a serious blacklist for her family. She wasn’t even able to be a debutante! Cameran’s husband has known this girl’s family for decades (he gave her swimming lessons when she was four), and Cam likens her to a little sister. She gives RCG some sisterly advice–she needs tone it down and mind her manners. Cameran reminds RCG that her behavior at Patricia Altschul’s dinner party was over-the-top and obnoxious.

Cameran Eubanks Confronts Eliza Limehouse For Her Poor Behavior & The Cast Wonders About KathrySouthern Charm

Season 6 of Southern Charm got off to a dramatic start with last week’s premiere episode. It all went down at Patricia Altschul’s dinner party. It was the first time that Kathryn Dennis was a welcomed guest in her home. She was both nervous and excited about the invite. Unfortunately, the new girl ended up giving Kathryn a lot of shit. This is a pattern on Southern Charm at this point.

Eliza Limehouse walked in as an oddly a very proud friend of Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs. Who in her right mind would ever brag about that? Claiming those two is not a good way to make friends, girl. However, she wasn’t the only one to stir up the drama. Austen Kroll told Chelsea Meissner that Kathryn and Whitney Sudler-Smith hooked up over the summer. Whitney awkwardly deflected, but, by no means, is the storyline over. It is still a hot topic of conversation during tonight’s episode.

Austen Kroll Talks About His Girlfriend Madison Lacroy Catching Him In A Threesome

Wasn’t it great to have Southern Charm back last week? It is one of my favorite shows and the seasons never seem to last long enough. It will certainly be a different show without Thomas Ravenel, but it looks like we will be hearing a lot about him throughout the season. For better or worse-probably worse! My favorite part of the premiere show was definitely the dinner party at  Patricia Altschul’s house, which was as wonderfully strange as any of her gatherings.

Austen Kroll was one of Patricia’s dinner invitees and for the most part was a low-key party guest. Low-key would not be the words to describe an embarrassing video that surfaced last summer of Austen and his new girlfriend Madison LeCroyhowever. In the video clip, Madison appeared to catch Austen in a threesome while stopping by his house early in the morning. Understandably, an argument ensued in the video, which was  apparently taped by one of Austen’s “houseguests.” And now Austen is telling his side of the story.

Southern Charm Recap:

He’s got money, he’s in magazines….the tabloids! Last night, Southern Charm made it’s much anticipated return with one missing piece, one Mr. Thomas Ravenel, who is sitting out this round due to several alleged sexual assault accusations. We do get our OG Charmers–Cameran Eubanks, Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, and Craig Conover. To say I cannot wait for this season to unfold would be an understatement!

The format remains the same…we follow the Charmers through their morning routines. The only difference is this group of noon sleepers are all actually early-rising adults. One by one, they recap their thoughts on the allegations against T-Rav and his subsequent arrest. Kathryn talks to Danni Baird and Craig. Shep admits to Austen Kroll that he’s yet to check in on the mother of two. Chelsea Meissner and Naomie Olindo (added to the credits this season, congrats!) joke about whether what’s her name will stay with Thomas if he goes to jail. Cameran is wisely pleading the fifth. She doesn’t want to risk a lawsuit from the Litigious Lothario.

Southern Charm Returns For Season 6 Tonight

Southern Charm is back for Season 6 tonight. Thomas Ravenel is not on the show. This also means that his on-again-off-again girlfriend Ashley Jacobs will not be making regular appearances. Although she does pop up at some point.

Nevertheless, the cast does have Thomas on their minds and his name in their mouths. Even though he’s no longer a cast member, Thomas is still a conversation topic. So much for suing Bravo to prevent that.

Cameran Eubanks Surprised To See Ashley Jacobs Back On Southern Charm

They’re baaaaaacck…Head’s up, Southern Charm fans! The crew from Charleston has returned for Season 6. We will see new faces, old faces, and faces you had hoped you would never see again. Returning to your television screens will be newish mom, Cameran Eubanks. Shep Rose is still hanging around, because what else does he do? Captain Beer himself, Austen Kroll, has a new girlfriend and is hopefully making money this year. Then there’s Craig Conover. Our Craigy passed the bar (not the one that serves alcohol, no one on this show passes a bar). He is presently fulfilling his current life’s dream of being a sewing master. I do not hate on this. I love a man who has actual domestic skills. Also returning is Kathryn Dennis. Kathryn has stayed out of trouble and has been keeping busy. She even has a new man in her life, but you can only go up after the father of her children.

Gone from the fold is convicted felon, Thomas Ravenel. Thomas basically unraveled (see what I did there) and got himself a one way ticket off the show. Thanks to a sexual assault charge and an extremely psychotic interesting girlfriend. These days, he spends a lot of time in court. Speaking of the psychotic girlfriend, whatever happened to Ashley Jacobs? She was a real Snickers bar with extra nuts. Ashley took being Thomas’ girlfriend VERY serious and essentially turned herself into the show’s resident pariah. She basically begged Thomas to marry her on a regular basis. She had no concern that he financially funded her escort lifestyle way of living. Ashley also backed herself into a passive-aggressive corner with the rest of the cast. Now, I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger – no wait, I am saying she’s a gold digger. If she were a smart woman, she would have packed her bags and returned to her family in California. Like I said, IF she were a smart woman…

Suds Ahoy! Austen Kroll Has Just Launched A Brews Cruise

Last season on Southern Charm, Austen Kroll‘s female costars thought he might be turning into the new Shep Rose, otherwise known as “Shep 2.0.” Those are very big shoes to fill. But once Austen seemed to settle into long-term unemployment and mess things up with costar Chelsea Meissner, who often picked up the tab on their dates, it looked like a good fit.  

In his defense, Austen was trying to create his own line of beer. At least it seemed like a more viable business than Craig Conover’s pillow line.  At the Season 5 reunion, Austen told host Andy Cohen that he was still in “stages” with his beer, which meant trying out names, networking and branding.
