“I was rather disappointed,” Taylor, 28, exclusively explained to Us Weekly although discussing the Thursday, Oct 12, episode of Southern Allure, referring to Austen, 36, telling Shep, 43, they “kissed” after weeks of them equally denying the hook up.
Taylor described to Us that she at first felt like she and Austen wanted to “come cleanse and just appear out with everything” but Austen allegedly persuaded her to maintain the magic formula. (Taylor swore to Olivia Flowers earlier this period that she and Austen in no way hooked up. Nevertheless, Austen admitted on Thursday’s episode that he shared a smooch with Taylor following Taylor and Shep break up. Austen then claimed that very little else occurred among them.)
“He was like, ‘That’s not the significant aspect.’ He was like, ‘A drunken kiss, doesn’t truly make any difference. A conversation that we had [about dating]. Alright, we can do that,’” Taylor recalled. “But then of system he was like, ‘I sense liberated and free and I never treatment.’ And I was like, ‘Well, I’m happy you really feel liberated, simply because I just lied to a person of my really fantastic good friends and I felt definitely, genuinely lousy about that.’”
Taylor — who dated Shep for two several years prior to splitting in July 2022 — couldn’t get around the simple fact that Austen hung her out to dry. “I was like, ‘I want we have been on the identical web page with this since I stuck to what you experienced advised me to do,’” she told Us.
Although Austen eventually confessed to kissing Taylor on Thursday’s episode, Taylor held her floor and only advised Austen’s ex Olivia, 31, that they chatted about perhaps staying boyfriend and girlfriend.
When Olivia — who dated Austen in 2022 in advance of contacting it quits that Oct — earlier requested Taylor place blank if “ya’ll at any time hooked up,” Taylor denied it.
Taylor confessed to Us that she felt “a minor bit” betrayed by Austen when he transformed the system. Eventually, she forgave him simply because she is “glad that it arrived out” and was no more time concealed.
All through Thursday’s episode, Taylor at last told Olivia that she did kiss Austen soon immediately after Austen and Olivia broke up. The timing, nevertheless, was awful as Olivia and Taylor had been amongst their buddies about to sit down for a extravagant dinner bash.
“Looking back again, I’m like, ‘I wish that we had just kind of [waited],’ but I was so keen to be like, ‘I don’t want you to hear it from anybody else. I want you to listen to it from me.’ So I was like, snag her at the [moment] when she walked in, I’m like, ‘Hey, welcome,’” Taylor explained of the awkward trade. “I was like, ‘I need to have likely taken her off and pulled her apart,’ but I just was like, ‘I have to tell her.’ … Austen received to experience liberated with his mate. I want to sense liberated with mine.”
Taylor shared that she was in a position to breathe once she informed Olivia the fact, but it was noticeable she did not select the right minute to very clear her conscience.
“Olivia’s the variety of particular person in which she has to procedure items, and which is why I was so seeking to meet up with her that early morning and permit her procedure it,” Taylor spelled out. “But of training course, you cannot definitely have it your way when cameras are in city. I felt definitely negative that she was not ready to definitely process it. And there we are with all of her buddies, and she is just sitting down right here like she claimed, she’s like, ‘What twilight zone am I in?’ So I desire that she experienced had a small little bit more time.”
When it will come to their current friendship status, Taylor explained to Us that she and Olivia have “tabled” their drama for now. Just after they equally misplaced a sibling this year — Taylor’s brother died in June, although Olivia’s brother passed absent January — the women have “been able to place all matters apart and be there for each individual other as close friends.”

“I experience quite self-confident and safe in our marriage, so I never come to feel like we’re each two different people,” she informed Us, noting the duo “made things official” about a thirty day period ago. “We do our individual items and when we arrive jointly, it feels pretty pure and quick.”
