Madison LeCroy really brought her own individual brand of messy to Southern Charm. Her tumultuous (and thankfully former) relationship with Austen Kroll was hard to watch from the beginning. All the way back to the world’s most hilarious video of her catching Austen having an alleged threesome. Madison has a special way of pushing Shep Rose’s buttons. And she has a thing for flirting with A-list athletes to piss of Austen, Craig Conover and anyone else who has a problem with her.
Last season of Southern Charm, particularly the reunion, was full of bombs like no other. Craigy was done playing nice with Madison, and revealed she was FaceTiming Alex Rodriguez while he was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. The tea only got hotter from there — with rumors of NDAs, deleted scenes and a whole lot of Madison acting like her hands were totally clean in the situation. ARod’s strategy has been deny, deny, deny, which is probably why his engagement to THE Jennifer Lopez fell apart. JLo doesn’t have time for foolishness.
Madison Lecroy has definitely brought her own brand of something to the most recent seasons of Southern Charm. Her toxic relationship with Austen Kroll was like watching a train go off-the-rails in real-time. She made her co-stars visibly uncomfortable with her treatment of Austen, and this is before the news broke she was secretly FaceTiming Jennifer Lopez’s FORMER fiance Alex Rodriguez. Austen wasn’t off the hook either, playing into this nasty back and forth dynamic.
But Austen and Madison are FINALLY done for good, aside from getting buddy-buddy at a mutual friend’s wedding recently. And now that Bennifer is taking over the A-list celebrity news feed, Madison apparently felt comfortable enough to debut her new boyfriend to the world. And Southern Charm fans, don’t get your hopes of. It’s definitely not Whitney Sudler-Smith. But can you imagine how messy that storyline would be? However, her new beau could be a dead ringer for Craig Conover, minus the pillows.
Madison LeCroy has worked double-time to get a full-time spot on Southern Charm. Since she busted Austen Kroll cheating on her, Madison has not been afraid to be explosive and polarizing, which at least makes for good TV. Like the SC reunion episodes was really the Madison and Austen show, as they went back and forth with Craig Conover and Shep Rose getting right in the middle.
At the reunion, it was revealed that Madison’s penchant for athletes expands way beyond her rumored “hookup” with Jay Cutler. The FaceTime dates with Alex Rodriguez, the then-fiance of Jennifer Lopez, were heard around the world. There were rumors of NDAs, secret DMs and a whole lot of messiness. Since the news broke, JLo and ARod called of their engagement because obviously, a superstar like JLo doesn’t have time to be with a man chasing after Instagram models.
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.
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.
Michael Kelcourse, lovingly known better as Michael The Butler, is the unsung hero of Southern Charm. He’s always there to lend a hand and mix up a perfect martini for Patricia Altschul at her beck and call. He never gets involved in the drama, but his presence brings a calming and old-world feel to the show. It’s welcome comedic relief from the constant drama from all the tumultuous relationships on the show.
So when Patricia announced in February that Michael suffered from a debilitating spinal stroke, fans were heartbroken. A blog was set up for regular updates on Michael and Patricia said he was “rapidly progressing” after receiving care. It’s nice to see Patricia being a part of taking care of Michael for a change because we all know he definitely deserves it.
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.
