Viewers were introduced to a new cast member on season 8 of “Southern Charm,” Olivia Flowers. The Charleston resident has been seeing longtime star Austen Kroll during the season and fans have since wondered whether the two are still an item, especially in light of Flowers’ appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” where she defended Kroll on a couple of occasions and was even wearing a diamond ring.
Flowers put engagement speculation to rest in an interview with US Weekly, but she did confirm that the two are in an exclusive relationship. “We are in a good place,” she told the publication. “We had an incredible summer together and traveled and we’re still good,” she said, revealing that they’re not seeing anyone else. She added:
We’re just having fun. We traveled a bunch this summer. We went to really cool places, and you always get to know someone on another level when you travel with them.
And we got to kind of relax once the cameras left and the shows stopped. We just kind of really got to know each other and figure out if this was something we wanted and we’re definitely in each other’s lives.
Flowers also said she’s not hurrying to get married and the diamond ring spotted on “Watch What Happens Live” was a “gorgeous” ring from a stylist but not an engagement ring.
