Reality TV enthusiasts have found a lot to love in Southern Charm, which follows a group of friends living in South Carolina as they navigate their personal and professional lives. As with any Bravo show, “Southern Charm” doesn’t lack drama — especially when it comes to the cast’s love lives. But few relationships on the show are as controversial as Austen Kroll and Madison’s. The exes, who first began dating in 2018, broke up and got back together a number of times before finally pulling the plug, according to Us Weekly in 2020. From then on, LeCroy and Kroll made headlines thanks to their alleged involvement with reality stars Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler. LeCroy also sparked major controversy over rumors of an affair with Alex Rodriguez.
But things seem to have settled down since then, and both parties are moving on. As of October 2021, LeCroy became engaged to Brett Randle, and told People that she knew immediately he was “The One.” “I thought, ‘I’m going to marry this man.’ There’s something about him that I’ve never felt before in my entire life,” she said, reflecting on their first meeting. As for Kroll, he found love for the reality star (and coincidentally LeCroy look-a -Like) Olivia Flowers. The duo’s relationship has been slower than LeCroy and Randle’s, with Kroll teasing big revelations about “Southern Charm,” per Us Weekly. So far on the show, however, the big reveal is that Flowers aren’t in love lost to LeCroy.
Madison LeCroy isn’t Olivia Flowers’ “home girl.”
When Olivia Flowers called Madison LeCroy a “home girl” in the season 8 premiere of “Southern Charm,” LeCroy didn’t take it well. She clapped back with an Instagram photo with the caption, “I’d rather be a homegirl than a homely girl.” Undaunted, Flowers posted a photo to her Instagram Stories the next day with the caption, “Homely? More like homebody.” In other words, Flowers doesn’t take anyone’s shade, especially LeCroy. But what flowers Yes, really Offense is the fact that LeCroy Kroll still writes, aside from the engagement. During a Watch What Happens Live interview, Flowers revealed that “[Madison is] always tries to make their presence known [Austen’s] Live,” adding that this also includes “late texting.” “The other day she sent him a night. It was like, ‘I don’t want to fight anymore,'” Flowers said.
In the same interview, Kroll’s girlfriend seemed upset by LeCroy’s underhanded ways (via ET). “I really intended to be at least cordial [with her]’ Flowers explained. “So when I kept hearing some things she said about me or people I care about… to have those kind interactions and then hearing that she was just saying things behind my back… I got to the point of Frustration driven.” Fans got a glimpse of how things came to a head between the two women when Flowers knocked out LeCroy in a preview of the Season 8 finale.

During her Watch What Happens Live debut, Olivia Flowers claimed she wasn’t trying to be friends with Madison LeCroy, and it looks like the salon owner feels the same way! Clarifying her dig that Flowers was “homey,” LeCroy told Us Weekly, “When I called her homey [it] could have been worse. I thought homeless because I don’t even think she lives with her mom and dad.” She added that Flowers has to be the one to stop throwing shadows and offering the olive branch. Whether Flowers and Austen Kroll’s relationship will stand the test of time, LeCroy isn’t sure: “They’re both tall,” she told the outlet. It’s far from a rousing endorsement!
Flowers is a newcomer to “Southern Charm,” so she was surprised by all the barbs LeCroy threw in her way early on in Decider. But it looks like she’s decided to take the big road and focus on the positives, like her relationship with Kroll. “We’re in a very good place,” the “Charmer” told ET. “I wouldn’t take part [Austen]like I was when I couldn’t [see a future with him]Flowers went on to say that she believes her boyfriend is being misrepresented on the show, describing him as “sensitive” behind closed doors. She also thinks Kroll is completely over LeCroy (via “Watch What Happens Live”), but fans will have to wait and see what drama unfolds on that front.
