Retired New York Yankees superstar, Alex Rodriguez, who is engaged to A-list entertainer, Jennifer Lopez, reportedly face-timed the Bravo star, according to Danni Baird, who spilled the tea during a recent appearance on Kate Casey’s podcast, “Reality Life With Kate Casey.” The Charmer alleged that Madison confessed to chatting with the former MLB-er months before the reunion taping.
“Months before [the show’s reunion special], I had heard … [Madison] had told me they were FaceTiming or something,” Danni, 36, alleged on the podcast. “I never asked more about it, or anything like that. I just didn’t tie in that he was a Major League Baseball player.”
Craig Conover dropped the bombshell during the first episode of the reunion special, sending fans scrambling to uncover the identity of the “married” baseball star. Host, Andy Cohen, tried to get to the bottom of the covert drama, which supposedly went down while Madison was in a romantic relationship with fellow cast member, Austen Kroll. The Charleston duo spilt in December.
Cohen referenced Madison’s mystery man as a “very famous, married ex-MLB player,” which confused viewers and social media sleuths, who had previously suspected that A-Rod was the guy, because the former Yankee and Lopez have not yet wed.
Cohen asked the hairstylist if she had directly messaged the man, and Madison admitted that a former baseball pro had communicated with her. She denied Craig’s allegation— that she had traveled to Miami to hook up with him.
“He contacted me, and yes, we DMed, but other than that there was nothing … I’ve never seen him [or] touched him,” she told Cohen.
Craig responded by calling Madison a “f**king liar” and a “home wrecker,” alleging that the duo had been “jerking off … on FaceTime all the time.” Madison was accused of jetting to Miami to have a fling with the man, whose name was bleeped, during the contentious exchange.
Madison fired back, demanding that Craig identify the pro.
“Give me a name!” she demanded. “Put me on a lie detector test. I never flew to Miami. Where’s the record of that? That’s fake.”
Madison will also address her controversial connection to NFL star, Jay Cutler, on Thursday’s reunion conclusion. The reality star produced receipts to prove that while she spent time with Cutler, she did not have a hot romance with the former football star. A released preview clip teased the upcoming drama.
Madison claimed that she began communication with Cutler after he slid into her DMs, while planning a trip to Charleston. Austen alleged that his ex was in it for revenge, which she denied. Madison then showed Cohen her receipts, in the form of messages on her phone.
“So this is the DM,” Cohen said. “This is Jay Cutler asking what the top three restaurants in Charleston is. She said, ‘Are you asking this because your ex sent the same DM to my ex?’ So he said, ‘Haha did she? I don’t keep up with her.’ And then she recommends a restaurant.”
“She said, ‘I’ll guess we’ll have to test more out,’” Cohen continued. “That’s flirty with a winky emoji! And then she said, ‘When are you coming?’ He said, ‘Tomorrow,’ and then she said, ‘Wanna come out on the boat?’”
Madison LeCroy posted alleged screenshots of her text exchanges with Cutler last month, after the ex NFL player and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kristin Cavallari, fueled reconciliation rumors by blasting “users” in twin Instagram posts on both of their accounts.
Part 2 of the Southern Charm reunion airs on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
