Till death do us part? Southern Charm’s dog wedding caused quite the stir in Charleston, especially for exes Austen KrollAnd Madison LeCroyAnd Craig ConoverAnd Naomie Olindo.
Madison, 31 and Austen, 35 were reunited during Thursday’s episode, August 11, as the best man/maid of honor for Little Craig/Peaches.
“Who would have ever thought we’d see Madison and Austen at the altar together?” Craig, 33, asked, before letting out a belly laugh.
While Shep Rose’s pooch, Little Craig, and Patricia Altschul’s pup, Peaches, were the stars of the ceremony, the drama between the humans on the show bubbled over throughout the event.
“Once they said their ‘I dos,’ you and Madison, Little Craig and Peaches will all walk out together,” the wedding planner told Austen, to which he confessed, “That’s my nightmare but OK, yes. Madison was able to be anywhere near an altar. Wow, OK.”
To make matters worse, the “Pillows and Beer” podcast cohost’s new flame, Olivia FlowersZach, a new man, was her date to the puppy nuptials. This irked him. The North Carolina native jokingly called Olivia’s guest, “Lumberjack chic” based on his outfit, before claiming he was fine with her seeing someone else.
Olivia was, for her part, happy as punch about her choice of date. “Considering this is my first official blind date, I am pretty pleased with what I am seeing so far,” the 30-year-old reality star told the cameras. “I think he’s very handsome. So far so good.”
Paige DeSorbo, who attended the event with her beau, Craig, pointed out that a dog wedding isn’t exactly normal. “It’s a Charleston thing,” the Delaware native explained, but Paige, 29, shot back, “No, this is some rich people s–t. This is nicer than my wedding is going to be.”
Paige and Craig had a great day despite being confused by the formal event. Naomie, however, got too involved with their relationship.
“Y’all, somebody give Paige your jacket. Craig, give her your jacket. Paige, you need a jacket,” Naomie said before the wedding, noting that the Summer HouseStar was not dressed warmly enough.
Craig eventually gave Paige the coat, but he was mad that Paige’s ex-girlfriend, with whom he had dated for 3 years before their 2017 breakup, intervened in the matter.
“What is going through Naomie’s head where she thinks she knows what’s best for me and my girlfriend?” the Pillow Talk author said during a confessional. “I don’t think she’s getting it. This is not respecting boundaries.”
