Ah, exes. You can't live with them, and, well, that's pretty much it. Even so, it turns out that reality stars and former lovebirds Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll are finding a way to live in the same Bravosphere. Kroll recently joined the cast of "Winter House," which features some of Bravo's beloved "Summer House" and "Southern Charm" cast members during a two-week vacation in Stowe, Vermont — and LeCroy had something to say about it, according to Us Weekly. (For anyone in need of a refresher, LeCroy and Kroll dated from 2018-2020, though quarantining during COVID-19 led to the end of their relationship, per Us Weekly.)

But it seems that where one goes, the other follows. As Screen Rant notes, LeCroy was name-dropped in the trailer for "Winter House," in which Kroll reveals that his former girlfriend sent him a text that says, "Please tell me that you haven't moved on." As for LeCroy's opinion on that, and her feelings on Kroll joining a new show, she seems to bear him no ill will. "When I first saw the trailer for 'Winter House,' I actually called him and he was like, 'I can't talk about this right now.' And I said, 'No, I was actually calling to tell you, like, good for you," LeCroy told Us Weekly. There's nothing like exes rooting for each other!

Madison LeCroy gave Austen Kroll a huge compliment

Whether Madison LeCroy was actually happy for Austen Kroll or not is up for debate, but her words do seem pretty sweet. In fact, she even goes a step further than just giving a good 'ole "good for you." Per Us Weekly, she called her ex "the GOAT," aka the greatest of all time. "Like you look like the GOAT here. I mean, all these girls are fighting over you," LeCroy told Kroll during the pair's phone conversation, via Us Weekly. "I was like, 'You've been insecure before in the past. So this should like boost your confidence through the roof and good. I'm happy for you.'"

As Screen Rant outlines, LeCroy is referring to Kroll's involvement in a love triangle with fellow castmates Lindsay Hubbard and Ciara Miller. Both are shown in the "Winter House" trailer saying that they'd like to date Kroll. While this can't be an easy thing for an ex-girlfriend to hear, LeCroy takes things in stride and has nothing but positive things to say about the situation.

Madison LeCroy has moved on from Austen Kroll

As it turns out, there's a good reason why Madison LeCroy isn't jealous of Austen Kroll's current success in the love department. That's because LeCroy got engaged to her boyfriend of seven months in October 2021, per Page Six. "I am engaged! And I'm so excited because I honestly had no clue at the time," the reality star shared on Amazon Live, of her big news. Over on Instagram, she posted a black-and-white photo of the two in which she wrote, "when you know, you know."

All in all, it's nice to see LeCroy cheering Kroll on in his quest for love, especially because they're slated to share the screen once Season 8 of "Southern Charm" kicks off. Per Screen Rant, the two exes have yet to begin filming together, and there's no word on what storylines will be covered in the new installment. However, there may be some crossover between "Southern Charm" and "Summer House," since co-stars Craig Connover and Paige DeSorbo are now dating, according to Page Six. Of course, there's almost certainly guaranteed to be some drama in the future, but for now all seems well in the Bravoverse.
