Madison LeCroy

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.

Kathryn Dennis Southern Charm

Season 7 of Southern Charm has wrapped, and whew. Who could have predicted this landing for a season with so much tumult. For one thing, the open talks about racism have been a major change of pace. Shep Rose has a real life girlfriend !?!? Then there’s the fact that the cast have finally reached a fame level requiring some fourth-wall breaking. It’s been a journey, but they’ve made it!

For some, “making it” has meant brokering HSN deals. For Kathryn Dennis it means finally ditching her expired fuck-buddy and entering a possibly real relationship. Is this real life?!

Kathryn Dennis Southern Charm

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.

Danni Baird Southern Charm

After the beach party from hell, it’ll be curious to see where the cast of Southern Charm goes from here. To say there’s tension in the group is the understatement of a lifetime. All eyes are on Kathryn Dennis because half of the cast has a bone to pick with her. Not the guys though which is evidently a whole other problem if you ask Leva Bonaparte. Besides Leva & Danni Baird washing their hands of her, Madison LeCroy has an issue too!

Speaking of Madison, the cycle between her and Austen Kroll is too much. They’re horrible for each other, and do nothing but continue to bring out the worst. Everyone wants it to be over. Their personal problems spill over into the group way too often. On last week’s episode of Southern Charm, a fight between Leva & Kathryn became about Austen & Madison. That’s a problem. Can they actually stay away from each other this week?

Austen Kroll Southern Charm

After a holiday hiatus, Southern Charm is finally back, and the drama is bigger than ever. The aftermath of Madison LeCroy & Austen Kroll’s breakup is proving to be just as draining as them in a relationship . These two are the WORST for one another. There’s something that happens when they interact that turns the entire world around them into a twisted toxicity.

The other large source of contention in the cast is the controversy surrounding Kathryn Dennis. While she’s always somewhat of a hotbed for drama, this time it’s a bit more serious. Finding yourself embroiled in a racism scandal tends to have that effect. Leva Bonaparte has been leading the charge of holding her accountable, and at this point Kathryn’s also lost Danni Baird as a friend. Is there any hope for Kathryn in this group after this?

Austen Kroll Southern Charm

These post quarantine episodes of Southern Charm are really turning up the drama. Kathryn Dennis is being forced to face the music for her actions has been oh so sweet. It’s about time. Seeing Leva Bonaparte and Danni Baird holding her accountable gives hope for the future of this show. Leva in particular has been such a renewed vibe to the group that is needed in 2020.

The biggest drama in the group right now though has to be about Madison LeCroy & Austen Kroll’s relationship. They FINALLY called it quits after the most toxic back and forth cycle since Kathryn & Thomas Ravenel. Do we think it’s for good? However, one thing is for certain. John Pringle is lurking and waiting for the perfect time to make his move on Madison.

Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel

Kathryn Dennis really tried it immediately into this season of Southern Charm. I wonder if she had known what was in store for her, if she would have done things differently this year. Things are so bleak for the woman some viewers hailed as a queen in seasons past.

Of course, it doesn’t help that she just can’t seem to quit Thomas Ravenel. Why is he still here? Like at all? These two have been off and on for years. Their custody battles have been raging for what feels like forever. Among these court cases have been ongoing claims of Kathryn’s drug use. Including allegations of substance use with the show’s crew! Yeeeesh.

Danni Baird Says It Was “So Stupid And F**cked Up” For Kathryn Dennis To Use Monkey Emoji; Insists Kathryn Is “Not Racist” And Has Learned “Hugely” From Mistakes

Southern Charm is currently giving viewers a season shrouded in controversy. The cast is tackling the beginnings of the Coronavirus pandemic and the height of the Black Lives Matter movement that had a massive impact on society in general. And if you’re weary of either the disease of bacteria or the disease of racism, you’re out of luck because this is what was happening in Southern towns across the US.

The spotlight is on Kathryn Dennis – again. Because she has a knack for stirring things up. In the midst of the BLM wave, Kathryn engaged in a heated exchange with a Black DJ. While attempting to emphasize a point, Kathryn chose to use a monkey emoji in a comment. We all know how that turned out. Now Kathryn’s ride-or-die friend, Danni Baird, is speaking out on Kathryn’s behalf. I guess someone has to do it.
