Craig-Conover

I don’t know about you, but I felt very uncomfortable watching Craig Conover during that bourbon tasting on Southern Charm. In all honesty, it came off like Craig really had no idea what he was doing or what his role was in the bourbon company. I was just getting vicariously embarrassed as the event dragged on.

Well, Craig is saying that the footage shown on that episode was very misleading and that he actually is a lot more involved with the business than it appears. If you follow Craig on Twitter, or even if you tweeted at him, you would see that Craig is actively trying to defend himself.

Watching the episode, it seemed like Craig just thought he should be handed ownership of the bourbon company. Craig was tweeting up a storm to prove that was not actually the case. 

In response to a fan who asked, “Do you feel like you were portrayed correctly last night? Seems like you are made to be the kid who thinks he is owed everything,” Craig responded by saying, “haha no. But I guess u cant win them all. It’s middle of season they needed to bring me (down arrow emoji) a little.” There was more to it though. It seemed like Craig was responding to anyone who wanted clarification about what went down.

A different Southern Charm viewer tweeted, “We’re at “Craig’s warehouse”??? WTF! It’s a 3rd generation biz IN JOHN’s family! Hello?! .”  Craig responded by saying, “We just started the company a year ago dude – where’d you get that?” I too was under the impression that it was JD‘s family business and he took on Craig to mentor him, but maybe I need to re-watch the episode? Or I just need to realize that it is impossible to show every aspect of anyone’s life in a reality TV show.

Another Twitter user wrote, “I’m confused whether is an employee or a partner in this Gentry Group situation…” and Craig responded with something that I did not expect or really understand, “Both, it’s complicated. Especially when they don’t air everything. They said it would be too hard to follow.” I really wish they did show more though because I’m curious about how this arrangement worked out and I also feel bad if Craig is not being portrayed well if it is not accurate.

I just wish that JD Madison would step up to explain the deal that was made with Craig when he signed on to the bourbon company. On one hand, Craig really does not have much credibility based on the past. Then again, it really does seem like Craig has made some good steps forward and that he really is trying to take on an active role in the business. It is hard to figure out what to really believe.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THAT CRAIG WAS POORLY PORTRAYED AT THE BOURBON TASTING? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT HE IS ACTUALLY MORE INVOLVED WITH THE COMPANY?
