Madison LeCroy Reflects on How Those Closest to Her Reacted to That Time She Was “in the Tabloids”
The Southern Charm cast member also opened up and spilled new details about the Mormon upbringing of her fiancé, Brett.
Of course, over the years, fans watched Austen and Madison’s roller-coaster ride of a relationship, which eventually led to a drama-filled breakup. These days, she’s engaged to Brett with a wedding around the corner. And yes, she remains friends with Patricia. So while some things have changed, some things remain the same.
And you can bet that those close to her have watched her public ups and downs along the way, including one moment that left her family in their feelings. “My dad always said that your name is everything. And he told me that at a very early age. So I think it was a little bit of a shock when I was in the tabloids and things like that,” she told The Daily Dish earlier this season. “And I don’t think that they loved it. And I think that they’re really happy for this new chapter of my life and to see where that goes.”
During her time in the spotlight, even with some bumps, Madison noted that she’s been able to grow her brand and her business. “I’ve gotten to work with tons of companies that I am, like, shocked [I get to work with] and huge fans of. So I have loved that aspect of everything. I will say everybody’s been very nice to my face that I’ve met and haven’t had anybody crazy yet. So, so far so good,” she said, adding that the experience of being on TV has been “wild,” and even with the good and the bad of having the world know everything about you, “It’s been fun.”
And amid all the drama, Madison revealed her favorite part of being on Southern Charm. “I would say my favorite thing about being on Southern Charm is all the events that we host. And, like, getting dressed up and having these lavish parties is always fun,” she said. “I’m always there for a good hair and makeup moment.”
As for her relationship with her future husband, Brett, who has yet to appear on the show, during the Southern Charm Season 8 reunion, Madison shed more light on her partner, including the fact that he is Mormon. “He was raised Mormon,” she said during Part 1 of the reunion, which aired on October 6. “It’s not that he’s a practicing Mormon.”
When speaking to The Daily Dish this past summer about what makes Brett different from her previous relationships, she noted, “I would say my relationship now is completely opposite of any relationship I’ve ever had. He has a level of respect for me and as I do for him. And with that being said, what a difference. I have not been treated so well. And I am very blessed.”
