Taylor, 28, exclusively told Us Weekly in the latest “Reality Show Secrets” installment that her “biggest on-screen regret” is not pegged to her and Austen Kroll’s 2022 kiss fallout. In fact, it has to do with her season 9 fight with Austen’s BFF Craig Conover.
At the time, Craig, 34, laughed off the allegation and later told Us that he knew there was no truth to the rumor. “Paige is like, ‘How on earth would I have pulled that off?’” Craig exclusively recalled to Us in September, pointing out that neither he nor Paige, 30, can be “secretive” as reality stars.
Looking back, Taylor told Us that although she “tries to give [herself] a drink limit” while filming, that rule went out the window during Madison LeCroy’s post-wedding celebration, which is when she lashed out at Craig. (The party was the first time Taylor had seen her ex-boyfriend Shep Rose in months, which caused even more tension.)
Taylor admitted that she “100 percent” had too much to drink at that event. “I was very nervous going into that party, seeing Shep and all that stuff, so I should have really been on my best behavior,” she added.
While Austen and Taylor initially denied they’d ever hooked up, they eventually admitted to kissing in late 2022 while Austen was trying to work things out with Taylor’s BFF Olivia Flowers. (The drama played out during an October episode of the Bravo series.)
Despite being at the center of most of the season 9 blowouts, Taylor told Us that it’s “probably Austen” and Madison, 33, who “cause the most drama” among the cast. “Madison likes to stir the pot. She likes to throw a bomb in there and see what happens,” she teased.
