Austen Kroll and Shep Rose's bromance has been interrupted on Season 6 of Southern Charm by Austen's on-again, off-again girlfriend Madison LeCroy. Shep has made clear that he doesn't approve of Madison, and the feeling is mutual. Their tension has definitely caused some awkwardness for Austen, who feels caught in the middle. He elaborated more on his unique situation in the Southern Charm After Show.
"The thing with Shep is he thinks you're just going to continuously choose Madison over him or over anyone else in your life and that's kind of being a bad friend," Austen explained. "He's like, no matter what she does to you, you continue to go back to her. I'm just really [between] a rock and a hard place. I'm like, this sucks. My girlfriend and my best buds do not get along."
Cameran Eubanks has a unique perspective on Shep and Austen's friendship. "Sometimes your friends can see things that you don't see because you're blinded by love," she pointed out.
