Southern Charm fans have been hyped up for a dramatic love triangle with Austen Kroll, Madison LeCroy, and John Pringle, but in real time, fans want to know what’s going on with Austen, Madison, Kristin Cavallari, and Kristin’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Jay Cutler. That’s a reality TV crossover none of us ever expected.
Most likely it’s just a bunch of thirsty people looking for that “Wait, how do they know each other?” attention (which I am clearly giving them), but some people wonder if there’s anything romantic going on.
Everything has changed this season for the Southern Charm cast. For the first time, they’re being forced to tackle the biggest issues in America. Whether it’s the pandemic or the issue of systemic racism, we’re going there this season. In a city like Charleston these are important conversations that are long overdue. It’s almost as if people like Kathryn Dennis are entirely unaware of the white privilege they have.
There are also many issues currently brewing among the cast that threaten to change everything. The friendship between Kathryn and Danni Baird is barely hanging on by a threat. Unless Kathryn starts making an effort to reciprocate what Danni gives her, it’s going to crumble. Another big issue is the never-ending relationship trouble between Madison LeCroy & Austen Kroll. Now that he has COVID-19 and put her son in danger, they might be on the verge of calling it quits.
It’s completely surreal to be watching the early stages of the pandemic play out on Southern Charm. As we move into that, we’re going to dive into the Black Lives Matter movement as well. I kind of love this. It’s a real and raw season, and we’re showcasing the state of America. So much went down in the beginning of the lockdown, so it’s great to be able to view it in this lens.
Flashing two months later following the beginning of the pandemic is a fascinating time jump. Things are opening back up, but life is nowhere near normal. Between the social justice movements and the virus, there’s so much happening in Charleston. We’re going to get a view of where all of the guys and girls stand on these issues. Who is taking it seriously? Who is standing up for change? That’s what we’re FINALLY going to learn.
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 Kroll, Madison 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!
The relationships of Southern Charm are all pretty depressing. Not to mention archaic. The love triangle between John Pringle, Austen 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?!?
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 Pringle, Austen 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.
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?
