Southern Charm viewers are well aware that hell would have to freeze over before Craig Conover became friends with Madison LeCroy. The two have gone head-to-head since Craigy
inserted himself was in the middle of her toxic relationship with his bestie Austen Kroll. The Pillow King is the one who exposed Madison for FaceTiming Alex Rodriguez during the most recent reunion. If there’s one thing Craig’s going to do, it’s defend his friends, spread gossip and never being embarrassed about his sewing. At least he’s consistent.
But Madison and Craig have come together, albeit over a lawsuit. The two are part of a suit brought against them by Kathryn Dennis’ ex Joe Abruzzo. If you don’t remember him, it’s OK — their relationship lasted about two seconds. He was another older man in politics Kathryn dated, honestly probably to make Thomas Ravenel jealous. But the two called it quits, but Joe is apparently trying to milk the most out of his 15 minutes of fame. Last year, he filed a lawsuit against Madison, Craig, Chelsea Meissner and Bravo producers for intentionally inflicting “emotional distress, fraud, negligence and defamation” on him. He’s going after $10 million from the group. Ironically, viewers probably barely even remember any scenes involving him in the first place.
How many times a day do you find yourself wondering whatever became of former Southern Charm star Landon Clements? If your answer is, “zero”, you are 100% in compliance with the rest of the United States population. Landon is gone and pretty much forgotten, but it looks like she’s trying to get someone’s attention.
Like other cast members who
were fired left the series, Landon continues to comment publicly on the show. And sometimes it bites her in the ass. When Thomas Ravenel famously went through some serious allegations relating to his children’s nanny, most people doubted Thomas’ claims of innocense. But Landon isn’t most people and she counted herself as one of Thomas’ defenders. Recently Landon claimed after she sided with T-Rav, Patricia Altschul dumped her on Instagram. I guess it’s easier to say you were dumped for defending an outcast than realizing you were possibly dumped for being a bore.
Southern Charm OG Craig Conover has really been on the up and up throughout the past year or so. He and Naomie Olindo broke up and while he was heartbroken, it was time for the toxicity between them to stop. He FINALLY passed the bar exam and opened his own law firm. And his pillow business, which started as a sewing hobby, blew up with online sales, tours and more.
Craigy finally seems to be getting his act together. And while it took him a while, it’s nice to see him turn his passion for sewing into a career. He’s come a long way from sewing homemade gifts for Cameran Eubanks’ baby to appearing on HSN and selling out his pillows online. He even has a podcast with Austen Kroll called “Pillows And Beer” based on their businesses.
Season 7 of Southern Charm has long been over, yet Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll continue to make headlines. The pair “officially” split last December, following the bombshell dropped that Madison allegedly FaceTimed Alex Rodriguez while he was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. And when the A-list couple announced they broke up, all eyes were on Madison, even though we know she’s under an NDA.
Over the past few months, it really seemed like Madison and Austen were done torturing each other for good. Madison recently announced that she has a new man, who isn’t A-Rod or Whitney Sudler-Smith, despite hookup rumors. Austen’s been doing what he always does — hanging out with Craig Conover, drinking TropHop and talking shit about Madison. But despite the officialness of their breakup, they look to be pulling a Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis back and forth with a recent reunion.
If you’re a Southern Charm viewer, you know that pillow king Craig Conover doesn’t have the best luck in relationships. Or with women in general. His relationship with Naomie Olindo, while it seemed good at first, was just a mismatch. Craigy felt really put down in that relationship, and we know he’s a sensitive guy. Even though Naomi was probably valid that he needed some motivation. He came onto the show with a crush on Kathryn Dennis, prior to her getting involved with Thomas Ravenel, but that fizzled out quickly. It’s probably best they stay friends, or else that would be a whole new mess.
While Shep Rose and Austen Kroll have a reputation for being womanizers, Craig always seems like the third wheel who isn’t one for approaching girls with cheesy pickup lines. And coming into Season 7, he didn’t have to anymore. He introduced girlfriend Natalie Hegnauer to viewers, who he raved was into his cooking, his sewing and all the other little quirks we love about Craig. Sure, she might have had a history with Austen, but nobody really cares about that. Unless you’re Madison LeCroy.
Kathryn Dennis is back in the news. But, this time it has nothing to do with a battle over her children or sending ignorant texts and not knowing what they mean. Last season, the Southern Charm star faced accusations of racism and falling off the wagon. She has maneuvered numerous allegations during her tenure on the show, but most can be traced back to her own questionable decisions. Kathryn has never walked the path of least resistance, instead heading straight into conflict.
Kathryn’s troubles seemingly started when she decided to have relations with Thomas Ravenel. Thomas has a sketchy past and trouble tends to follow him like a puppy, but Kathryn wasn’t deterred. One child lead to two and a passionate love affair ended amid jealousy and harsh mudslinging. Both parties have moved onto other relationships. And T-Rav even added a new baby into the mix. While Thomas finds himself engaged to his new baby mama, Kathryn is taking steps as well. Chleb Ravenell has been in the picture since the summer 2020. Their union has no signs of slowing down. Recently Kathryn revealed she and Chleb no longer just share a fondness for Fendi, now they share a whole apartment.
Whitney Sudler-Smith is no stranger to cast hookups, whether he is denying being involved in one or just watching the carnage unfold around him. He has an uncanny way of side-stepping the drama on Southern Charm season after season. Whitney just seems to have the long-game in mind and doesn’t sully his name with any reality show tart.
Whitney’s one weak spot was Kathryn Dennis. He denied hooking up with her in Season 6, claiming a southern gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell. Clearly he learned his lesson after she chose Thomas Ravenel over their brief hook-up during the premiere season and his ego now suggests he act otherwise. But maintaining good decisions can’t be easy.
