Southern Charm star Taylor Ann Green has made a shocking admission about her recent kiss with co-star Austen Kroll. In an exclusive interview with E! News, Green revealed that she was the one who initiated the kiss, and takes full responsibility for it.
The kiss in question occurred during a cast trip to Colorado, and was captured on camera for the show. It sparked a heated debate among fans, with some accusing Green of being disloyal to her then-boyfriend, Shep Rose. However, Green insists that there was nothing romantic or disrespectful about the kiss, and that it was simply a moment of weakness between friends.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” Green said. “I initiated the kiss with Austen, and I shouldn’t have done it. It was a mistake, and I apologize for any hurt or confusion it may have caused.”
Green acknowledges that the kiss may have looked more intimate than it actually was, due to the way it was edited on the show. However, she maintains that there was no romantic intent behind it, and that she and Kroll are purely platonic friends.
“Austen and I have been friends for years, and we’ve always had a flirtatious dynamic,” Green explained. “But there’s never been anything romantic between us. We were both just having fun and enjoying each other’s company in that moment. I know it may have looked different on TV, but there was nothing more to it than that.”
Despite taking responsibility for the kiss, Green also emphasizes that she doesn’t regret it. She believes that everyone makes mistakes, and that this is just a learning experience for her.
“I’m not perfect, and I never claimed to be,” Green said. “I’m human, and I make mistakes like anyone else. This was just a moment of weakness, and I’ve learned from it. I don’t regret it, because it taught me something about myself and what I need to work on in the future.”
Green also addressed rumors that her boyfriend, Shep Rose, had broken up with her over the kiss. While she wouldn’t confirm whether or not they’re still together, she did say that their relationship is stronger than ever.
“Shep and I are good,” Green said. “We’re working through things, and our relationship is stronger than it’s ever been. He knows me better than anyone, and he knows that I would never do anything to jeopardize our relationship. We’re moving forward, and we’re happy.”
As for her friendship with Kroll, Green says that it remains strong as well. Despite the controversy surrounding the kiss, she and Kroll have talked things through and cleared the air.
“Austen and I have spoken, and we’re all good,” Green said. “He understands where I’m coming from, and vice versa. We’re still friends, and we’ll continue to be friends. There’s no hard feelings between us.”
In conclusion, while the kiss between Taylor Ann Green and Austen Kroll may have raised eyebrows, Green insists that it was just a harmless moment between friends. She takes full responsibility for her actions, and is using this experience as a learning opportunity. With her relationships with both Shep Rose and Austen Kroll remaining strong, it seems that Green is ready to move on from the drama and focus on the positive aspects of her life.
