Austen Kroll

Southern Charm

The Southern Charm series sure has it’s share of love triangles and failed relationships. Currently we have Thomas Ravenel, his newest baby’s mother, and Kathryn Dennis. Then there’s Austen KrollMadison LeCroy, and John Pringle. Honestly, none of these combinations of relationships are going to work out. But that’s not why we watch, is it?

This show has also kept viewers on their toes for the birth of three Southern Charm babies in 7 seasons. Thomas and Kathryn had their two. Shortly after they entered into an intense custody battle, and there was yet another love triangle. This time it involved the infamous Ashley Jacobs. There was also Cameran Eubanks who previously claimed she would never be ready for parenthood. Instead, she has taken motherhood by the ovaries. It’s almost impossible to say what will happen next, but that didn’t stop the current cast from placing their bets anyways!

Austen Kroll Madison LeCroy Southern Charm

Austen Kroll, after years of puppy-dogging behind Shep Rose and Craig Conover, may finally be coming into his own. He’s one by one starting to call out his cast-mates for being shitty. It’s sort of impressive. He’s even come for Patricia Altshul’s caftans. Look out now!

While some seem to think Austen’s whining is limitless and played out, others are finding it refreshing. He’s certainly shooting his shot on this season of Southern Charm. On camera, and off.

Craig Conover Southern Charm

The last time Craig Conover dated on camera, he was clearly mismatched with Southern Charm alum Naomie Olindo.  They were polar opposites.  She was driven and focused, while Craig struggled to find motivation.  He cycled through different endeavors, but never committed to anything.  Naomie lost patience and often belittled him on camera.  They split up, and she eventually left the show.

Craig seemed pretty affected by the breakup, and did not pursue any relationships.  At least not publicly.  Craig did find success in his professional life after founding the company Sewing Down South.  Maybe that success boosted his confidence to start dating again, and wouldn’t that be nice to see, especially since one of Craig’s costars has high expectations for his new lady.

Austen Kroll Says It’s Important For Southern Charm To Talk About Racism; Says The Show Was “White Privilege Nonsense”

The off camera Southern Charm drama has been absolutely flowing during and prior to this latest season. But let’s go back a little bit. This show, though loved for years, has also been touted as one of the most problematic Bravo has ever seen. They literally had episodes scrubbed from existence they were so disgusting. We’ve had empty couch seats at reunions due to sexual assault allegations. Yet somehow this season we have an entire racist monkey emoji fiasco. Not to mention a super lackluster rich guy acting entitled to his friends girlfriend?

I would ask if these people will ever learn, but I think the proof is in the pudding. Using words like “sanctimonious” then silently allowing slut shaming of a single mother. Ringing bells to alert the help and then purposely appropriating and selling entire outfits to contribute to your already massive wealth. The hypocrisy is THICK. At best, these seem more like morbid compulsions and not conscious choices. At worst, well….you know.

Craig Conover Southern Charm

Southern Charm has had quite the shake up this year. Some people aren’t exactly loving it. We’ve lost some cast members and added some new. The season thus far has mostly focused on one newbie in particular, John Pringle. John has been doing the most his best to seduce Madison LeCroy away from Austen Kroll. A bold choice, to say the least. This show never ceases to amaze me with how thirsty for any kind of attention some men can become.

Perhaps one of the biggest shocks for this new season was the introduction of Shep Rose’s new girlfriend! That’s right,Taylor Ann Green has officially been claimed by Sheppy. And he’s not the only one excited about it.

Shep Rose Shares His Frustration With Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy’s Relationship

The relationships of Southern Charm are all pretty depressing. Not to mention archaic. The love triangle between John PringleAusten Kroll and Madison LeCroy is a good example of both. Who can forget Austen getting caught in a threesome off season. Yet Madison stayed. Now John is trying to win her affection simply by….being rich? I’m not even sure what exactly this guy is offering. Yet everyone seems convinced he’s deserving of Madison’s affection.

I love watching two borderline unemployed men fight for the attention of a woman who owns her own business while raising a child and co-parenting. Not. Why did Madison stay with this jabroni?!?

Austen says in between drama with Madison and Craig this season; Says madison is his soulmate

What a tangled web Austen Kroll has weaved on this season of Southern Charm. He’s still reeling from his off-season threesome drama. Austen hasn’t been totally dumped by Madison LeCroy. At least not yet.

Despite the advances by newest cast-member John PringleAusten and Madison have remained committed to each other. For whatever reason, this seems to have drastically upset Craig Conover. Maybe because his temporary landlord and drinking buddy is too busy to hang out? Like, I really don’t get what Craig’s issue is.

John Pringle Southern Charm

The ladies and gentleman of Southern Charm are about to be hit with a dose of reality like never before. COVID-19 is making its debut in this episode, and things will never be the same again. Everything is going to be different moving forward. It’ll be interesting to see how they navigate filming in the midst of the pandemic. This was one of the network’s first shows to be impacted by the virus.

The drama is heating up within the group though. The arrival of John Pringle might end up being the worst thing to ever happen to Austen Kroll. His interest in Austen’s girlfriend Madison LeCroy is SUSPECT. This man JUST came into the group, and this is the chaos he is already causing. There are so many other women in Charleston that he could pursue. Why set your sights on someone you know is in a relationship?
