“Honestly, she slid into Craig’s DMs and was like, ‘I’m coming into town,’ so we all went to dinner,” Kroll, 33, explained on Thursday. “We all kinda hit it off. We wanted to go and visit them, and we did. We all get along so well.”

Despite their multiple hangouts, the relationship is only a friendship for now.

“Kristin is out of a 10-year long relationship, she’s not looking for anything. I’m out of one who had one kid,” the North Carolina native, who recently split from costar Madison LeCroy, explained. “There’s no reason to jump into something with someone who has three kids, I can promise you that.”

“There is no Austen and Kristin, you know, it’s just funny. Kristin is a beautiful driven girl, clearly, you know, what I’m attracted to, but she has a lot on her plate,” Kroll told Us exclusively. “She’s going through her own stuff.”

Dye, 37, seemingly responded to the dating rumors surrounding Cavallari and Kroll following their Instagram Live on Sunday, December 13. “He wishes,” the Washington native tweeted on Tuesday, December 15, a message that Kroll assumes is about him.
