After weeks, no, months, of speculation, Summer House fashionista Paige Desorbo finally admitted that she’s dating sewing king Craig Conover. The Winter House pair have been rumored to be together for weeks. Paige skipped one of Hannah Berner’s engagement parties to hang with the Southern Charm star in Charleston. She and Craig posted very couply photos from Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula’s wedding. And Craigy has even hinted at a move to New York City. Now, Paige has confirmed that they are for real, for real, and it’s pretty adorable.
Bravo’s Daily Dish reported that Paige officially announced she’s an item with Craig. She says that she met the Sewing Down South founder three years ago, but she was in a relationship at the time. “And then we got to Vermont, I didn’t know he had a girlfriend. So I was a little bummed when I first got there,” Paige said, adding that Craigy respected his girlfriend while filming. However, she was happy they started off the show as just friends. “We built just a very platonic friendship, which is like, the base of our relationship now,” she said.
Paige hints that at the end of Winter House, fans will see a shift in their dynamic. “It sounds so cliche, but Craig just gets me. There’s a lot of things I don’t have to explain to him because we look at things very similarly. It just fits, like, it just is very natural,” Paige said. Awww, I think I stan. I do wonder how this will play out if Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo will be returning to Southern Charm next season. But for now, let me bask in the good news and get to work on a couple name — Craige? Praig? Caige? I’ll keep thinking. Definitely not as good as Kymanda.
As for the couple living in separate cities, Paige said they like it that way. “We actually love long-distance. We’re two people that are very independent and have so much going on during the week,” Paige said. Loves long distance, said no one ever. But I believe Paige that it works for them, considering they both have a lot going on. “When we get, like, Monday through Friday to get all of our things done and then I hop on a plane Friday morning, it’s fun,” Paige said. “I feel like we’re more present with each other when we are together. We’re not on our phone and we plan and do fun things.” And we know a fashion-lover like Paige DEFINITELY appreciates Craig for his sewing. That is NOT a point of contention.
