Leva Bonaparte appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Monday night following the premiere episode of her Southern Charm spinoff, Southern Hospitality. During the appearance, she sparked some drama with Austen Kroll.
While playing a game of rapid-fire questions about her Southern Charm castmates, Leva prompted Austen to speak out in an Instagram comment by labeling him as the “most complained about” cast member at her Charleston hotspot, Republic, where her new show is based.
As she said she’d rather go into business with Shep Rose than Austen or Craig Conover and seemingly named Craig as the “worst tipper” of the Southern Charm cast, Leva took aim at Austen. And after the Queens of Bravo shared a clip from the WWHL episode on their Instagram page, Austen shared his response.
“Do I take this bait or just let it slide?” he asked.
After seeing how Austen reacted to the comments she made about him on the November 28 episode of WWHL, Leva offered a response of her own, also addressing her apparent accidental labeling of Craig as the “worst tipper” of the Southern Charm cast.
“Bahhahaha sorry I thought he said worst temper. No [Craig Conover is] NOT a bad tipper. [Austen Kroll] relax- it’s all good! Lol you literally posted how much sh-t you give my staff and admitted it!” she explained.
As Southern Charm fans will recall, Leva experienced Craig’s temper firsthand on the finale episode of season eight earlier this year. During the episode, Craig kicked Leva out of his holiday party for Sewing Down South after she complained about being sat at a table away from the rest of the cast, along with Craig’s ex-girlfriend, Naomie Olindo.
Months later, during his own appearance on WWHL, Craig confirmed he and Leva were on the “up and up” following their season eight drama.
Southern Hospitality season one airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo.
