Madison LeCroy claims that her “Southern Charm” co-star Olivia Flowers and former controversial cast member Thomas Ravenel were previously affiliated.
LeCroy made the claim in the new trailer for the upcoming season 8 reunion after host Andy Cohen noted that everyone in the cast has shared “loved ones.”
“I think Thomas and Olivia, right?” said LeCroy, 31, pointing to Flowers, who is currently dating LeCroy’s ex-boyfriend Austen Kroll, 35.
Flowers, 30, immediately became defensive and denied any flirtation with the 60-year-old, who shares two children with Flowers’ close friend and co-star Kathryn Dennis.
“Sorry, did you just get that out of your fake ass or something?” Flowers shot back, to which LeCroy replied that her “ass is real.”
Ravenel — who starred on the popular Bravo series from its 2014 premiere to season 5 in 2018 — was fired from the popular Bravo show following his arrest in 2018 for second-degree assault and violence against his children’s former nanny. At the time, Ravenel claimed he decided not to return.
He pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and assault in September 2019. He eventually reached a settlement with the nanny, agreeing to pay $45,000 in her personal legal fees and $80,000 to a local nonprofit that helps adult survivors of sexual assault.
Ravenel apologized at the time, but redoubled his innocence by saying that he “never intentionally sexually assaulted anyone”.
Meanwhile, Ravenel and 31-year-old Dennis — who dated for years before breaking up in 2016 — have been embroiled in a nasty custody battle since their split. In March 2021, Ravenel gained primary custody of their two children: daughter Kensington (Kensie), 8, and son St. Julien (Saint), 6.
It was unclear what prompted the change of joint custody when the documents were sealed, but Ravenel previously claimed in court files that Dennis is “addicted to prescription drugs, marijuana, alcohol, shopping and sex.” Dennis vehemently denied these claims.
The trailer also teases an emotional conversation between exes Shep Rose and Taylor Ann Green, a heated showdown with friends turned rivals Craig Conover and Leva Bonaparte, and an argument between ex-boyfriends Naomie Olindo and Dennis.
Part one of the two-part “Southern Charm” reunion airs Thursday, October 6 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
