Although Madison LeCroy watched the demise of her relationship with Southern Charm‘s Austen Kroll in 2020, she has no fear in commenting on his current romances. Recently, Austen split with Olivia Flowers – who publicly feuded with Madison – on the heels of his romance with Ciara Miller (from Summer House).

During his relationship with Ciara, fans slammed Austen over his controversial behavior. At one point, the 35-year-old kissed another Bravolebrity, Lindsay Hubbard, while Ciara still had feelings. After Austen faced the backlash, Madison hinted she was happy to see it.

But in an interview with Us Weekly, Madison shared who she thinks Austen should date.

“I mean, honestly, I met Ciara this weekend and I am like, after meeting her, she’s such a cool girl and so beautiful,” said the star at BravoCon.

“I was like, ‘Wow, he really messed up.’ Like she’s perfect in my opinion,” she continued. “So maybe he should revisit that, but I think that she’s too smart.”

But when Madison was asked if Austen should reignite the flame with Olivia, the 31-year-old answered, “I don’t care.” On the season 8 reunion, Madison surprised audiences by defending Austen as Olivia pointed to his inability to commit to their relationship.

“I didn’t think that anyone would think that I would actually defend him,” Madison shared with the outlet. “So I knew it was gonna be a little shocker for everybody, so I was like, ‘Why [not] just throw a wrench in there?’ And that’s exactly what I did.”

Also in the reunion, Madison accused Olivia of hooking up with alum Thomas Ravenel – which Olivia denied.

After the season ended, their drama seemed to continue, as Olivia approved a social media photo of which Madison was cropped out.

“I was like, ‘S–t, are we doing this again?’” explained Madison in the interview, revealing her reaction. “And I was like, ‘Why did you send me a come to peace like text after the reunion?’ She did.”

According to the hairstylist, Olivia sent a message to the effect of: “‘Let’s just be chill, let’s be good and you know, happy this is all done.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ I’m fine. I feel good.”

Madison also shared where she stands with Venita Aspen, after declaring they were no longer friends at the reunion.

At BravoCon, Madison revealed that the relationship has changed – for the better. “When I saw her cute little face, I was like, ‘Damn it!’ We’re good,” said Madison at an October 16 panel, via Venita added, “You can’t stay mad at me too long,” before Madison confirmed, “I cannot stay mad at you.”

“I love you, Venita,” she expressed, before Venita responded, “I love you, Madison. Thank you.”

In the same weekend, Madison indicated that no castmembers are invited to her wedding to Brett Randle.
