First, Madison LeCroy uninvited Austen from her upcoming beach party that was originally intended to celebrate his birthday. This was after Craig Conover advised Madison to stop socializing with Austen following their breakup earlier this season. Madison then told Austen that if he could come to her party and just be friends, he was welcome to attend. But Austen ultimately decided that it would be best if he wasn't there.
However, Austen later changed his mind and surprised Madison by showing up to her party on the day of the event. The tension between Austen and Madison turned awkward when she turned her attention to John Pringle, who has expressed his attraction to Madison in the past and notably went on a playdate with their respective children at the batting cages earlier this season.
Madison and Pringle addressed their interactions at the beach party during the January 7 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The titular talk show host read a question from a fan who wanted to know if Pringle "ever [feels] like Madison uses you to make Austen jealous, especially at the private island party?"
"I think there were a couple moments where I thought there was a little bit of twisting the sword in the side, maybe the threesome slip that was pretty funny, or just maybe things that were a little needling," Pringle replied in the above clip. "But I don't think it was very malicious, really. More of a tactic."
Madison clarified that she "wasn't using" Pringle at the beach party. "Was I probably throwing it in Austen's face? Absolutely," she said. "But, no, I'm not using Pringle."
Madison simply summed up her feelings for Pringle like so: "I think Pringle's nice, and we're friends."
So there you have it.
