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.
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.
Apparently, there are a lot of reality stars who get off on spite. We all remember Blac Chyna spite-dating Rob Kardashian to get back at Tyga and Kylie Jenner. Now, we have Madison LeCroy spitefully hooking up with Jay Cutler to get back at Kristin Cavallari and Austen Kroll… for being platonic friends. And, for the media attention, obviously.
Unfortunately for Austen, Madison clearly used him to get on Southern Charm, despite Patricia Altschul’s claims to the contrary. Fortunately for Austen, at least this mean he got a storyline too. However, he also got so much more than that, including heartbreak and embarrassment. He was visibly upset at the Southern Charm reunion while Madison smirked in response, thinking about how she secured her spot on the show for another season. Or at least that’s what I assume she was thinking about. She could have had A-Rod on her mind instead.
Oh come on, don’t act like you haven’t done this before! Madison LeCroy must be feeling “tension” aimed at her after this season of Southern Charm. Lots of folks are feeling some type of way about Madison because she was a big ‘ol meany pants to Austen Kroll and she may or may not have a penchant for athletes.
On the bright side, at least Madison’s scandals don’t involve racism (at this point) and people aren’t trying to hold her accountable for being either tone deaf or ignorant. That happened to poor Kathryn Dennis, the victim of systematic bullying after being called out for an incredibly insensitive text exchange with a Black woman. Hopefully Kathryn will somehow make it through these trying times. If Kathryn’s “mistake” was on one end of the spectrum, Madison’s latest guffaw is certainly on another. Sometimes people make separate social media accounts to comment on something and conceal their identity at the same time. And sometimes people forget to switch to their fake account before posting.
The Southern Charm reunion came in so hot on last week’s episode. Craig Conover was gunning for Madison LeCroy from the moment they stepped onto the stage. He came to the reunion with his sights set on wrecking her entire existence. The accusation that she slept with a former MLB player stunned the world. It’s been the hottest gossip since Craig dropped that bomb into everyone’s lap.
When the first part concluded, Kathryn Dennis was back to her old self and ready to spar with Leva Bonaparte. After a season that felt like a never ending crusade against her, Kathryn’s looking for a fight. She believes Leva has twisted her narrative and slandered her name, and she’s out for vengeance. Leva may have bitten off more than she can chew by messing with Kathryn. She’s been a wildcard since Day 1, and Leva’s about to find out why firsthand.
The current season of Southern Charm wasn’t the best. The same discussions got dragged out week after week. However, I give the cast, crew, and editors the props for bringing it all together to create episodes during the coronavirus pandemic. Thankfully, the reunion has more than made up for that. However, I really wish they were filming the show right now. The off-season accusations against Madison LeCroy are ten times as interesting as the current season. Madison dropped text message screenshots and a selfie with Jay Cutler, claiming that they slept together.
After that, Austen Kroll and Craig Conover accused Madison of dating married men and professional athletes at the reunion. Then, based on social media evidence, it seemed like one of those guys was Alex Rodriguez, who’s engaged to Jennifer Lopez. Andruw Jones also appeared in the gossip about Madison’s alleged hookups. Then, Madison addressed rumors about hooking up with Eric Decker, who is married to Jessie James Decker. And now, Madison’s frenemy Danni Baird is confirming some piping hot tea about Madison.
Gather ’round kids, Petty Crocker is in the kitchen and she’s about to make dinner. Southern Charm had a rough season. For a show that was already lacking substance, viewers were given no choice but to deal with some pretty unsavory issues along with some fairly unsavory people.
Let’s discuss Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy. A dish of vanilla pudding could best describe these two. Boring, unpigmented, and nauseating. Austen and Mads have been together for a few years, but their dual toxicity was not as entertaining as Bravo hoped. Now Madison has made it all the way to mainstream media. She found herself entangled with Kristin Cavallari’s ex and dude legit didn’t know what he was in for. Let’s introduce Jay Cutler to the world of receipts, shall we?
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.
