Madison LeCroy recently took to social media to address Olivia Flowers calling her “homegirl” in the Southern Charm season 8 premiere. Madison first appeared in Southern Charm season 6 as Austen Kroll’s girlfriend and fans quickly witnessed their roller-coaster relationship. After season 5 ended, Austen was caught in bed with two other women, which Madison had caught on video. A few episodes into Southern Charm season 6, Austen accused Madison of sliding into another man’s DMs and the two broke up. Madison and Austen rekindled their romance, only to break up a year later. The two reconnected in 2019 but during Southern Charm season 7, they revealed that they were broken up for good.
Since his breakup with Madison, Austen played the field with several women. He starred in Winter House, where he connected with Summer House star Ciara Miller. They tried to make their relationship work outside of the show but unfortunately, the two reality stars were on different pages. Austen made an appearance in Summer House season 6, where he flirted with both Ciara and Lindsay Hubbard, causing friction in the Hamptons house.
In the Southern Charm season 8 premiere, fans watched as Austen pursued his new love interest, Olivia, who was his date to Kathryn Dennis’ thirtieth birthday party. When Madison walked in, Austen became very flustered, which Olivia was taken aback by. Later, Olivia told the cameras during a confessional, “We shouldn’t be going on our first date and talking about homegirl.” Following the premiere, Madison posted a picture of herself on Instagram with the caption, “I’d rather be a homegirl than a homely girl.” The next day, Olivia shared an Instagram story of herself wearing a robe and eating a bag of Doritos with the caption, “Homely? More like homebody.”
Many Southern Charm fans applauded Madison’s shade towards Olivia, but some thought her dig at Austen’s new girlfriend was out of line. One fan responded, “The sad thing is that you spend so much time showing the world how ‘beautiful’ you are…just to blow it all with a post like this shows your true heart.” Although Madison is engaged to her fiancé Brett Randle, many viewers noticed the tension between her and Austen. The Trop Hop brewer seemed visibly uncomfortable seeing Madison, which led Southern Charm fans to wonder if there were unresolved feelings between them.
Since Madison’s debut in Southern Charm season 6, she has been in the middle of much drama. Austen’s friends and fellow Southern Charm stars Shep Rose and Craig Conover blasted her for toying with his emotions. During the Southern Charm season 7 reunion, Craig blasted Madison for being a “homewrecker” and “trash.” With both Austen and Madison in new relationships during Southern Charm season 8, hopefully, viewers will see a resolution between the two fiery exes.
