Rumors began to go wild when Madison mentioned having an affair with an ex-MLB player that was censored out in a 'Southern Charm' clip.

She also explained that those phone calls happened over a year ago.
But many were curious as Madison mentioned the ex-MLB player was married while Rodriguez was engaged with plans for a wedding in the near future.
