Southern Charm Craig Conover

Craig Conover Says He And Paige DeSorbo Always Had A Crush On Each Other; Praises Getting Together In A “Healthy Way”

Winter is coming — well, it’s already here. At least on Bravo anyway, now that the long-awaited Winter House is on air. The show will be a mashup of the Summer House Good Vibes Tribe and a few Southern Charm boys, vacationing together in Vermont. And, as always when you put a bunch of reality TV personalities under one roof, there’s bound to be drama.

One of the most exciting relationships sprouting from Winter House is Bravo’s latest IT coupleCraig Conover and Paige DeSorbo. After months of speculation, the pair finally admitted to being together. But if you ask them both, it was a long time coming — three years in the making.

Craig spoke with People about his relationship, saying that it evolved “naturally” out of their friendship. “It was done in a healthy way,” Craigy said. “You see the foundation of our relationship start to form on the show.” He added that both parties were crushing on one another since they met three years ago when Craig made a brief appearance on Summer House. However, neither were single at the same time. “We always had an eye for each other,” Craig added. Oh boy. Now I’m going to really need Naomie Olindo to go back on Southern Charm to get her reaction to the new and improved sewing king.

While there have been rumors that Craige has been an item for months, they purposefully decided to keep it on the DL, Craig said. Well, until Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula’s wedding, when Paige made Craig Instagram Story official. “It confuses me when people didn’t think it was real or that we were hanging out for publicity,” Craig said. “If it wasn’t real then I’d be posting about it. I haven’t posted a single thing about it because it’s so real.” Wait am I swooning for Craigy? I love the idea of him sitting at home, sewing little outfits for Paige while he anticipates a weekend with her in Charleston. Maybe I’m getting a litttttle too close with Bravolebrities these days, but they feel like my friends.

Overall, Craig said he and Paige are very happy, especially now that the news is official. “I don’t think either of us has ever dated someone else in the industry. We get each other, it’s nice,” Craig said. He added that they are both each other’s “biggest fans” which is adorable. And he even said he’s excited to share the relationship with the world. So this has to confirm Paige making a cameo on Southern Charm Season 8 right? We’ll have to wait and see.
