They’re no strangers to drama.

And Austen Kroll revealed that on-screen antics made their way into real life relationships after a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live. 

The 34-year-old Southern Charm star was back in bad graces with Lindsay Hubbard, who leads the Summer House cast, after an awkward interview with Andy Cohen where she admitted to needing a ‘break’ from their friendship and subsequently blocking him on social media.

Austen and Lindsay recently starred on Bravo’s first season of Winter House, a blended cast included Summer House members with a few Southern Charm stars.

The pair, who had ‘hooked up’ four years ago, downplayed his interest in Lindsay on the show despite having a ‘history of friendship and physical history of romance.’ 

During WWHL last week, Austen chose Ciara Miller instead of Lindsay in a game of Pick Your Winter Spouse, as the HubbHouse founder sat front and center in the audience.

‘The tea on Watch What Happens Live is she ended up, like, you know, blocking me,’ Austen explained during a Pillows and Beer livestream with Craig Conover.

‘I saw weeks prior to Watch What Happens Live, she found out that I was going on and she was like, “Oh, my gosh, my aunt’s in town, I want to come.” I was like, “Cool, great, you know, I’ll call my sister.” … I thought that they’re gonna hang out in the green room and then Andy Cohen found out that she was there and was like, “Let’s put you in the front row.”‘

He added: ‘As I’m in the back, like, getting on my makeup and whatnot, she, like, falls on the ground, like, “Oh, my God, they want me in the front row?” And then they’re like, “Well, you don’t have to,” and she’s like, “No, no, I’ll do it.” And I was like, “Yeah, no s**t. No s**t that you’re gonna say yes.”‘ 

'I can’t be [OK] with keeping that kind of person in my life. Like, I spend so much time caring and nurturing for my friendships and being the best friend I can be to everyone around me,' she said

Lindsay admitted she was taken aback by Austen’s answer and wished he could have been a little more ‘respectful to me and to our friendship’ as she sat in the audience to support him. 

‘Specifically, after Winter House filming, I had a conversation with him about that,’ she said on Wednesday’s episode of the Reality Life With Kate Casey podcast. ‘I can’t be [OK] with keeping that kind of person in my life. Like, I spend so much time caring and nurturing for my friendships and being the best friend I can be to everyone around me. 

‘If it’s not going to be reciprocated [after] almost four years of friendship and if it’s still not there, then I don’t need to train a 34-year-old man how to be a good friend to me.’   

Regardless of Austen’s bad move, Lindsay’s rumored to be dating longtime Summer House co-star and best friend, Carl Radke.
