So much of recent Southern Charm news has been about Kathryn Dennis and her disgraced criminal baby daddy. It’s time for something different.
Austen Kroll and Madison Lecroy have had an on-again, off-again relationship with some serious and dramatic ups and downs.
Now, Austen has confirmed that the tumultuous duo are back together … for now.
Have you noticed that a lot of your favorite Real Hosuewives and Southern Charm stars are in New York this week? It’s not a coincidence.
They’re in the Big Apple for Bravocon, a convention for Bravo stars.
On Friday, November 15, Austun Kroll took part in a panel that spoke with fans.
Also on the panel were Patricia Altschul, Kathryn Dennis, Cameran Eubanks, Shep Rose, and Craig Conover.
It was on this panel that Austen divulged that he and Madison Lecroy have reconciled and are back together.
"This week, I’m doing well with Madison," he joked.
Austen’s joke continued: "Next week, I’ll let you all know."
It’s a nod to the instability and on-again, off-again nature of their romance.
"I tried to go our separate ways," Austen explained to fans.
But he readily admitted: "Madison has been a person for me for a long, long time."
"It’s hard to walk away from someone like that," Austen confessed.
Some times, two people just click … even if not all of the sparks that are flying are emotionally healthy or conducive to their happiness.
"She really is a hell of a woman," Austen openly gushed.
Continuing to sing her praiser, he expressed: "She’s got it going on."
So, we have heard, did the fabled mother of Stacy.
"I find it hard to walk away from her," Austen offered to fans and fellow panelists.
Fans may be happy to see this cute couple back together or they may be annoyed by the news.
But Southern Charm viewers are very well aware that Madison and her relationship with Austen just did not click well with some members of the cast.
Madison clashed with Danni Baird. She clashed with Shep Rose.
However, Austen informed the audience that Madison was totally chill with everyone and that all beefs had been quashed.
Patricia Altschul disgreed. She said that peace has not been forged.
"Madison told me about that night," she revealed at the panel. "She said she bit her tongue."
Shep was hurt, saying: "That is not nice for her to say that."
Craig straight up blurted out: "I think they are horrible together."
Back in August, Madison admitted to Us Weekly that her relationship with Austen has been "complicated."
"Austen’s a grown man. He can make that decision on his own," Madison said.
She continued: "I do tell him that you end up being influenced by the top five people that you hang out with."
Madison added: "Or even betrayed is the same kind of vibe that they’re giving off."
"I tell him now," Madison continued. "I’m like, ‘Now that you’re a business man, let’s act like it.’"
“Craig is Craig," she stated. "I’ve known Craig for a long time. It’s so crazy."
Madison said that it was nuts "because he acts so chill when it’s just me around him on my own, and then he has a lot of things to say."
"I’m never mad at Craig," she concluded. "I mean, come on."
