Heavy/NBCUniversal Olivia Flowers and Tom Sandoval.
“Southern Charm” star Olivia Flowers opened up about why she was spotted with “Vanderpump Rules” personality Tom Sandoval at BravoCon 2023, held in Las Vegas the weekend of November 3.
During a “Southern Charm” discussion, a fan asked Flowers if she had been seen with Sandoval at the fan convention. Flowers responded that she had a brief interaction with Sandoval, who was criticized by Bravo fans after he cheated on his now-ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix with former “Vanderpump Rules” star Rachel “Raquel” Leviss. The “Southern Charm” personality also explained that she was aware that fans would be curious about her encounter with Sandoval. She explained that both she and Sandoval attended “Summer House” star Paige DeSorbo’s 31st birthday party in Las Vegas.
“I knew this question would come up. I went – we went to Paige’s birthday party and happened to leave at the same time. And I remember walking through the casino and hearing, ‘That’s Olivia and Sandoval.’ And I was like, ‘Oh shit,'” Flowers recalls.
She clarified that nothing happened between her and Sandoval.
“It’s not Olivia and Sandoval. But we just left at the same time. But yeah, I mean, I’m a big Ariana fan, a big fan of the cast,” Flowers said.
Olivia Flowers opened up about her relationship with Austen Kroll
While speaking with Us Weekly at BravoCon 2023, Flowers briefly discussed her relationship with her ex-boyfriend and Southern Charm cast member Austen Kroll. As fans know, Flowers felt betrayed when she discovered Kroll and her friend Taylor Ann Green kissing and then lied about the romantic encounter. However, on Southern Charm Season 9 Episode 7, Kroll became a source of support for Flowers after her brother Conner Flowers passed away. In Season 9, Episode 8, it was revealed that Flowers spent time at Kroll’s, where she took off her bra.
In the Us Weekly interview, Flowers stated that she took off her underwear because she was “just getting comfortable.” She claimed she had not resumed a romantic relationship with Kroll.
“Wrong place to get comfortable because the next day the whole city of Charleston knew about it. So I’m just not going to do that anymore,” Flowers said.
Flowers also gave an update on where she stands with Kroll after filming Season 9 of Southern Charm. She explained that watching Kroll this season was “eye-opening.”
“I just can’t help but feel frustrated when I hear conversations happening when I’m not around. So I’d be lying if I said it didn’t affect our friendship now. But it just depends on the day with him. He really annoys me. But I also enjoy his company, so it’s weird,” Flowers said.
Austen Kroll commented on the argument between Taylor Ann Green and Olivia Flowers
During the Us Weekly interview in November 2023, Flowers confirmed that she is no longer close to Green. Kroll commented on the feud between his castmates in a separate interview with Us Weekly on November 4, alongside his castmate Craig Conover. He indicated that he felt guilty about the situation since he was directly involved in the end of Green and Flowers’ friendship.
“It upsets me because I knew how close they were. And let me just say that it’s not the act [of kissing], it’s because of the consequences and the decision not to be honest in the moment and things like that. But it bothers me because they were so inseparable between filming season 8 and season 9. They were like best friends,” Kroll said.
Conover agreed that he believed Flowers and Green could work out their problems since he and Kroll also had a lot of problems.
“The beauty of our show is that you see the ups and downs and then when it works out, like we will,” the Sewing Down South co-founder added.
