Southern Charm’s Olivia Flowers Slams TJ Dinch After He Tells Her to “Move on” From Austen & Taylor’s Hookup Drama as She Shades TJ’s Lack of “Storyline” and He Fires Back, See Their Posts

Olivia Flowers battled on social media with Southern Hospitality star TJ Dinch over her drama with Austen Kroll and Taylor Ann Green. As Southern Charm fans know, Taylor hooked up with Austen despite her close friendship with Olivia, his ex.

Austen and Taylor have changed their story several times. According to Taylor, Austen told her to lie about the hookup – right before he suddenly told the truth, making her look like the bad guy. Olivia soon forgave Austen – the Teflon Don of Southern Charm – but still resents Taylor.

In a clip from a Viall Files interview, shared by @queensofbravo on Instagram, Olivia addressed how Taylor and Austen “changed their story so many times.” The host Nick Viall, however, suggested Austen was given a “pass” while Taylor was left in the cold. Olivia denied playing “victim.”

Reacting to the clip, Southern Hospitality’s TJ wrote a shady comment. “We get it. Time to move on,” said the bartender, who shared a face-with-spiral-eyes emoji.

Olivia clapped back, “@tj_dinch didn’t realize answering questions about a season that’s currently airing suggested I haven’t moved on. That’s typically how this storyline stuff works. You’d know that if you had one.”

At this point, TJ responded, “You’re right.. the whiteboard in my room is filled with my workouts, work schedule & appointments not my storyline and what I want my relationships to be with my friends ❤️.”

He went on to say, “I’m also very proud of who I am on my show and the representation I bring to the gay community. Thanks.”

Southern Charm season nine airs Thursdays at 9/8c on Bravo.

Who the heck is TJ? I thought for a minute that the article just reversed JT’s initials, but the article includes tweets to Olivia from TJ. I have absolutely no idea who he is.

I mean, I kind of agree with TJ. Who cares at this point? She forgives Austen but doesn’t forgive Taylor? Weird. Also, her and Austen never had a real relationship. So this whole thing is just contrived for a storyline.

I disagree. Austen has said repeatedly on camera he loved Olivia.

He is a F boy and does not care about anyone more than a week.

If he really “loved” Olivia then they would have still been together. Olivia mentioned that it was he that ended their relationship.

They only dated for 8 months! Get over it. I am so sick of hearing out it. Also, Taylor seems to have a great relationship with all the guys.

Yeah, because Taylor is a pick-me guys’ girl. 🙄

This punk ass bitch needs to STFU and mind his own business.
And don’t throw the gay community in for a free pass – FU

Apparently, he’s the self-appointed representative of the entire gay community. And he’s proud of it.

As a gay male myself, lets not throw our community in a social media battle please, TJ.
Also, in the words of Mary Cosby: Who’s TJ?

I loved him on SH but this is a bit stupid for him to talk about. Olivia can be mad as long as she wants

ITA. It does annoy me that Austen always seems to get a pass though.

Fuck that pos fool. I’d wish he’d just go on

I don’t think it is necessarily a pass because she knew the relationship with Austin wasn’t going anywhere. Taylor was one of her closest friends and she valued that relationship. I do see how the betrayal is worse, and why she continues to keep her distance from Taylor. If she were to stay mad at Austin, he might think she still had feelings for him.

Is he yet another one of the 100 background characters they have added to Southern Charm this season? Patricia’s new gardener perhaps?

My gawd I hope not

I think she’s a mess, this back and forth with this guy made her look weak. I appreciate her loss, but as someone who lost two brothers and both parents, I never fell back into the arms of someone that fucked me over. And I had to google who this guy was, kinda cute but seems like he’s looking for attention that he’s not getting from that marginal show he is on, I mean I didn’t last the first 15 minutes, so I should not be too harsh on it.

Sounds like this TJ guy is a little bitch looking for relevance. No thank you.

“Southern Hospitality” is nothing more than a rip-off of Vanderpump Rules. The real question in all of this is why is there another season of this lame show when SC New Orleans was canceled.

Reply
Heidi November 30, 2023 - 5:39 pm

I can’t believe it got another season. Season 1 was boring as hell and Leva is no LVP.

Personally, I think Olivia is over Austin, however, I think she felt total betrayal by Taylor, who she considered a true friend, which in my opinion is worse.

Hope they dont’ bring Olivia back. She brings nothing to the show and has zero personality. She doesn’t appear to have a job, and has been living with her parent’s or a their house since the show began, so surely longer than that. She seems insecure, her speech patterns are halted, and other than always licking her lips or inside her mouth which is so annoying, – she doesn’t do much else. There is no ” charm” this cast member.
