This season, Southern Charm gave viewers lessons on how to handle situations poorly. The show was a hotbed of controversy with people who don’t know how to conduct themselves in polite society. Thank goodness Shep Rose wrote a book to provide guidelines we should all be following to achieve success. And if you believe that, Pat Altschul has a lovely
Ravenel bridge she would like to sell you. Fans went on a whirlwind journey dealing with a multitude of sensitive topics.
At least we were finally introduced to new faces. Successful business owner Leva Bonaparte. Potato chip guy John Pringle and his beard. And Madison LeCroy – hairstylist, Austen Kroll handler, and mom of one came on board full time. ‘Ol Mads has been in the media a lot lately, perhaps you have read about her entanglement with several men of an athletic nature. You might be under the impression Madison thinks very highly of herself, and that might actually be true – but it took some nips and tucks to get there.
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.
Austen Kroll was extremely vocal on the recent Southern Charm reunion. Mainly, it was a battle of wits between himself and ex-girlfriend Madison LeCroy. Craig Conover was after Madison in a big way, after she supposedly went after his girlfriend Natalie. But Austen’s outbursts seemed to dominate the stage, and while his target was Madison, Austen had opinions about all the cast conflicts.
One feud of interest this season was between Kathryn Dennis and long-time friend Danni Baird. After expressing hurt for Kathryn’s silence during her “monkey emoji” situation, Danni found herself looking for an apology for the latter part of the season. Kathryn was not sympathetic to her friend’s feelings initially, but apparently the two made up after filming wrapped.
Southern Charm has been a doozy. The reunions have basically been insane remakes of the issues throughout the season. The cast-members rehashed Kathryn Dennis’ racism with a new gusto. Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy seemed to have a new hateful passion as well. This season has changed the direction of a show that used to have a totally different vibe.
One major difference has been the exit of former cast-mate, Cameran Eubanks. And while Cameran hasn’t been on screen, her close friend Leva Bonaparte has. Leva has been open about her wishes for Cam to address some issues on camera. Leva also shared during Part 1 of the reunion that she and Cameran are not as close as they were before she joined the show.
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.
Wowowowowow. Say what you will about this season of Southern Charm, but their first reunion ep is SENDING viewers. Screw the Jay Cutler drama. We found out Madison LeCroy has a whole MLB saga!? She’s also made peace with the (supposedly) reformed Shep Rose. The COVID-19 seating distance created some serious whiplash as people watched the insults hurl all over the damn stage.
Seemingly wasted Craig Conover (who had to be shushed by Andy Cohen multiple times) and Austen Kroll were relentless with their anger towards Madison. Rather than take the hypocrisy lying down, Madison decided to air Craig’s relationship’s dirty laundry. Fair is fair, right? She listed off the new-boo’s former appearances on Andy’s dating shows as well as her previous hook up with Austen in summer of 2019.
