My favorite weeknights are Wednesdays. This is because I get a double dose of BH drama with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Hills: New Beginnings. The latter brings me back to my teens with a potent shot of nostalgia – particularly whenever Brody Jenner and Audrina Patridge are on screen. Will they, or won’t they? Please do something more than flirt like you never left high school!
At this point though, I’ll take the nostalgia over RHOBH’s lack of anything interesting right now. Not much even happens on The Hills: New Beginnings– the drama is vague and dulled by everyone’s laid back California vibe. I still watch with glee, especially because insane characters and crystal moguls Heidi Pratt and Spencer Pratt seemingly live on another planet. Brody even seems to know that not much ever happens on the show – which is why he’s calling for Kristin Cavallari to come back full-time.
The new (and somewhat improved?) Southern Charm has a mind of its own. Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll’s messy relationship has brought a ton of new drama into the mix that has us saying Thomas Ravenel who? And while the show started off as being an inside look into Charleston’s elite, now real-life athletes and A-Listers are getting in the mix, making the whole storyline even juicier.
As we know, Madison apparently has a thing for athletes. She allegedly signed an NDA after FaceTiming with Alex Rodriguez, who is engaged to the Jennifer Lopez by the way. She’s also claimed that she and Jay Cutler had a thing, but that might have just been a total dig at Austen. He and Craig Conover become close friends with Kristin Cavallari, so Madison was doing what she does best — fighting with him about it.
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.
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?
Some people have been wondering if there’s something going on between Austen Kroll and Kristin Cavallari. However, Kristin has been dating comedian Jeff Dye and she’s still in the midst of her messy divorce from Jay Cutler.
Seemingly, Austen, Craig Conover, and Kristin have been documenting their hang outs on social media just to get attention. If Kristin was actually dating one of the Southern Charm guys, she’s much more likely to keep things private to protect the relationship. This is clearly just a thirsty social media ploy for everyone involved. However, the start of these reality TV friendships is pretty interesting, according to Austen.
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.
Growing up in Southern California in the age of Laguna Beach and The Hills, I was so happy to see Kristin Cavallari finally find her match with Jay Cutler. It was a beacon of hope to see such a strong female in a successful marriage. Despite their differences, they found a way to make it work and they seemed genuinely supportive of each other. They were the couple I would point to as an example of a happy marriage.
So I am taking it hard to hear that they are divorcing after ten years together and three children. I loved getting to know Jay and seeing their relationship on Very Cavallari. He has a dry sense of humor and an amazing ability to embrace the joy of doing nothing. He seems to enjoy staying home with the kids and does not mind taking a back seat to his successful wife. Jay appeared to be a perfect balance to Kristin’s drive and dedication to her business. It was proof to me that there are supportive men out there, and that a strong woman like Kristin can still find her happily ever after. Now, it turns out they are not a happy, successful couple after all. And although the divorce started amicably enough, there are new details emerging every day that suggests the relationship is much uglier than it appeared.
