Austen Kroll took aim at Brand Glanville on Tuesday’s episode of his podcast after hearing that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum dissed him to Ciara Miller on a recent episode of her own podcast.

Following an episode of Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, in which Brandi, 50, told Ciara, 27, she was too good for him and that Austen was beneath her, the Southern Charm cast member, 36, labeled her as “low-brow.” He also denied exchanging numbers with Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps, 58.

“I do not recall… I don’t think that I exchanged numbers with Luann. I would’ve remembered and I think it’s interesting. I… I… No, I didn’t,” Austen told co-host Craig Conover, 34, on the July 11 episode of Pillows and Beer, via a clip shared by Rate My Bravo on Instagram. “I did not exchange numbers with her. I mean, she easily could be confusing me with somebody else.”

“I would remember,” he noted.

As fans may have seen, Luann said on Sunday’s Watch What Happens Live that the two of them exchanged numbers as her RHONY castmate, Sonja Morgan, suggested they also swapped spit. But according to Austen, it never happened — not that he wouldn’t want it to.

“I think Luann’s gorgeous. [But] I don’t think that I’ve ever spoken to Luann, and that’s where I stand. But I’d like to,” he clarified. “I’d like to because she sounds like a lot of fun. And I think making out with an older woman would be a lot of fun.”

“Unfortunately, no Luann, I don’t have your phone number. But DM me!” he added.

Also on his podcast, via Page Six, Austen slammed Brandi for her “bullsh-t” podcast episode, saying he’s been “nothing but nice” to Brandi since meeting her last year at BravoCon and also agreed to be “a guest on [her] podcast” months later.

“And then she does this low-brow, clickbait bullsh-t to, like, try to be relevant,” Austen said. “[It’s] disappointing to see.”

After reaching out to Brandi about the comments she made to his Summer House ex, via text, Brandi began “gaslighting” him.

“She was like, ‘No, no, no, you didn’t see the whole clip! I said that you were nice and that I had you on [my podcast]!’” Austen recalled.

“You know that’s the definition of gaslighting, right?” he said back to her. “Like, you’re telling me that I’m crazy for thinking that you calling me ‘down here’ is f-cked up, but it’s f-cked up that you’re trying to defend it.”

“See you in the streets, girl,” he added.

Meanwhile, Craig said he also had an “interaction” with Brandi.

“She said that Craig was rude because Craig said that they don’t do personalized monogram pillows,” Austen explained. “How is that rude? It’s just that his business doesn’t do that.”

According to Craig, Brandi told him she’d like a pillow at BravoCon with her initials. But because his company, Sewing Down South, doesn’t “really do custom pillows,” he was unable to produce such a thing.

Also on the podcast, after Austen said Brandi is “someone who talks sh-t,” Craig looked back on Brandi’s claims of him being “hammered” and ignoring her by teasing “the full story — about, like, how she was.”

Southern Charm season nine is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in the coming months.
