Exclusive BravoCon Interview: Craig Conover Explains Why He Was Meant For Reality TV & Why Is So Excited To Meet Fans At BravoCon

Only one day down and BravoCon has been a fan’s dream come true so far. So many Bravolebrities gathered in one place is unreal.
We even got to talk to a few of them, including Southern Charm star Craig Conover, who was just as excited as the fans were when he heard about the first-ever BravoCon.

In an exclusive interview with Reality Tea, Craig admitted, “I like this stuff because I’m a pretty social person. I love meeting people from other shows and all the fans. I embrace it.” And this is why so many of us Southern Charm fans love Craig, pillows and all.

Unfortunately, every single reality star isn’t as nice and appreciative as Craig is. Without naming names, Craig remarked, “Some people kind of fight it and they view everything in a negative light and it’s like no one is forcing you to do this.”

Still talking about the BravoCon concept, Craig said, “I think it’s great. I was excited when I heard about it and I’m even happier to be here.”
Craig is a reality TV veteran at this point. After so many years on Southern Charm, he can’t imagine doing anything else. Why does Craig keep coming back to reality TV, even with its drawbacks? Craig shared, “I enjoy it. I think I’m good at it. I think I’ve been able to convey some positive messages, even though it took a long time.” But, that’s why fans are riding so hard for him now. We’ve seen Craig learn some tough lessons throughout the years. Craig got a lot of shit from fans and his costars, but he’s truly come into his own. He is building his empire one pillow at a time.

Craig also told us, “And, I just think, even though this is weird to say, that this was kind of what I was supposed to do more so than going and working a traditional job.”

The Southern Charm OG also admitted, “I would miss it if it went away. I really enjoy doing it.” And we would all miss watching it. When is Southern Charm returning with some new episodes? I’m gonna need a premiere date and a trailer ASAP.
