Fingers crossed Bravo cameras are rolling in Charleston! As Madison LeCroy celebrates her engagement, Southern Charm followers can’t assist however surprise how her ex Austen Kroll feels about her transferring on with Brett Randle.
“He’s never met her fiancé, nor has he gotten the chance to see them together, so it’s hard for him to form an opinion about Brett,” one supply tells Us Weekly, noting that Kroll, 34, is “still taking in the engagement news” as he feels it occurred rapidly.
A second supply shut to the Winter House star tells Us that Kroll is “completely unbothered” after LeCroy, 31, introduced proposal particulars through Amazon Live on Thursday, October 14.
“He was enjoying a BBQ with Craig [Conover], Shep [Rose] and [John] Pringle when the ‘news’ broke,” the insider says. “When the time comes for Austen to get engaged, he won’t make it an infomercial.”
LeCroy and Kroll’s rocky romance performed out on season 6 of Southern Charm, with the twosome confirming they had been over for good in December 2020. She met Randle throughout a trip within the spring, and he popped the question seven months later. According to the primary supply, the Kings Calling Brewing Co. and the hairdresser “remained friends” as they “run in the same friend group.”

Kroll, for his half, has not publicly reacted to LeCroy’s engagement information. She instructed Us earlier this week that his response to the marriage information hadn’t “even crossed” her thoughts.
“I don’t think that the lifestyle that I want for myself and my son is something he’s really even interested [in],” LeCroy instructed Us, referring to Hudson, whom she shares with ex-husband Josh Hudges. “It’s going to be hard for him to understand why I do want to get married and do want to have kids in that kind of situation. I don’t think that’s something he really wants to do.”
While Southern Charm is anticipated to return for season 7 with each Kroll and LeCroy on the cast, his love life will first be on show on Winter House. In the trailer for the sequence, which debuts this month, he’s seen in a love triangle with Summer House costars Lindsay Hubbard and Ciara Miller.
“He’s not ready for a big commitment of marriage right now and just wants to have fun,” the primary supply tells Us. “Madison, clearly, wants the opposite.”
LeCroy, for her half, instructed Us that she reached out to him after the teaser — which included Kroll mentioning his ex reaching out to him — dropped final month.
“When I first saw the trailer for Winter House, I actually called him and he was like, ‘I can’t talk about this right now.’ And I said, ‘No, I actually was calling to tell you, like, good for you,’” she stated on September 29. “‘Like, you look like the GOAT here. I mean, all these girls are fighting over you.’ I was, like, ‘You’ve been insecure before in the past. So this should, like, boost your confidence through the roof and good. I’m happy for you.’”
