‘Southern Charm’: Shep Reveals Austen “Does NOT Want to Hear About” the A-Rod and Madison Rumors

0

Southern Charm star Shep Rose is wading into the alleged love triangle between Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez, and Madison LeCroy. On Thursday night, Shep stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where he was asked about the drama between the famous (and now reconciled) couple and his co-star, who is reported to have been DMing and talking on the phone with Rodriguez. Insert eyes emoji here!

“Sheppy, we have not caught up with you since the Southern Charm reunion,” said WWHL host Andy Cohen during Thursday’s episode. “In a recent US Weekly interview, you claimed A-Rod allegedly made Madison sign an NDA. When was the last time you spoke with Madison, and what do you make of all the hoo-haa now that’s going on in the media?”

Shep, ever the diplomat, was hesitant to respond at first. “Andy, you’re going to get me in trouble,” he said (to which Andy insisted that that’s his “job”). “Yeah, yeah. I’ll only answer to you from now on.”

“I mean, it’s surprising. Our little show is on the cover of magazines,” continued Shep, who added that he’s attempted to speak to Austen Kroll, Madison’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, about it, but no dice. “Austen does not want to hear about it. He really doesn’t,” said the Southern Charm star. “He’s a sensitive guy, and he’s just — he’d rather just block it out and act like that’s the past and keep it in the past.”

But even Shep knows that avoiding this particular scandal is going to be hard for Austen. “I told him, buddy, ‘That’s going to be difficult to do if we continue doing the show here,’” he recalled.

Earlier this month, Madison found herself at the center of controversy when Page Six reported that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez broke up after he was linked to the Southern Charm star. In February, Madison said that she and A-Rod were FaceTiming but did not take things further. “He’s never physically cheated on his fiancée with me,” she told Page Six. “I don’t want anything bad for his family, or for mine. We are definitely innocent in this.”

The famous couple has since gotten back together, and they were recently spotted packing on the PDA in the Dominican Republic.
