Afterwards Austen Kroll and Olivia Flowers revealed that they have split, things may be looking up for the former couple.
“I didn’t properly convey at the reunion how much this girl means to me and how close we’ve gotten over the past year and changes,” Austen, 35, said during Southern Charm cast panel at BravoCon 2022 on Sunday, October 16. “She means the world to me. … I made a big effort to change [things] after the reunion. We had a wonderful weekend.”
The host of the “Pillows and Beer” podcast and Olivia (30) started dating at the end of last year, which was recorded in the 8th season of the Bravo series.
“We’re in a good place,” Olivia chimed in Southern Charm this season, he said Us Weekly exclusively in August, revealing that the couple was monogamous. “We had an amazing summer together and traveled and we’re still going strong.”
The duo confirmed their split a month later while filming the Season 8 reunion, which aired in October. “We both talked and we said, ‘I don’t ever want to lose you as we were seeing our friends,'” Austen said at the time. “Or in a way like me and Madison [LeCroy, whom he previously dated] do not speak. She said, ‘It would break my heart’ and it’s true. You can call me a coward … because I didn’t take that leap, but, like, it doesn’t scare me.”
Although Olivia was eager to be in a committed relationship with the founder of Kings Calling Brewing, he couldn’t commit at the time.
After the couple split, they reunited at BravoCon on Sunday, but were coy about what the future holds. Austen even turned the question around Shep Rosewondering if he got back together with his ex-girlfriend Taylor Ann Greenwhom he divorced earlier this year.
“Yeah, Shep, where were you this morning?” Olivia teased the 42-year-old Bravo star, seemingly implying that he may have hooked up with Taylor the night before.
Craig Conover said, “BravoCon is for lovers!”
As Austen and Olivia continue to banter about what’s next for them, Winter House star previously said Us that his former partner will always be special to him.
“I would never say never with her,” Austen exclusively said on Wednesday, Oct. 12, of the potential for a reunion. “She’s such an important person in my life and, like, she’s been huge for me, you know, this year to get back to who I think I am. So I would never say never with that.”
