That southern charm The cat is out of the bag who brought Naomie Olindo and Whitney Sudler-Smith together… but is Olindo’s ex-boyfriend Craig Conover really upset?
Fresh from Conover’s blasting of Olindo when she told him she wanted a friendship, Conover now seemed upset upon learning of the connection, though he made it absolutely clear that he’s moving on with Paige DeSorbo.
Craig seems blown away by the “Southern Charm” Whitney and Naomie brought together
Olindo shared with Leva Bonaparte that Sudler-Smith had spent the night at her house after a drunk dog wedding. As usual on southern charmGossip spread quickly, and the entire group of friends eventually found out about the connection.
The majority of the cast mused and laughed at how Sudler-Smith made sure Olindo had the best room on his hosted friend’s trip to the Frank Lloyd Wright Auldbrass Plantation. And while the cast gushed over the connection, Conover appeared floored when he found out about the tryst, especially after telling Austen Kroll he’s completely over Olindo. Plus Conover said he doesn’t care who Olindo dates. Spring …
“What do you mean they made out?” Conover demanded of Kroll as Kroll spilled over the night Olindo and Sudler-Smith had together. “What…did Whitney get drunk and tell you?” Conover got angry when Kroll didn’t provide further details, adding, “For two years I’ve been telling you everyone your girlfriend has slept with!”
Craig confronts Whitney on the friends trip
“What the hell,” Conover said to Kroll. “To go from me to Whitney. It’s just not that much fun.”
Olindo didn’t find her relationship with Sudler-Smith as bad as it would have been had she bonded with Shep Rose or Kroll.
But Conover confronted Sudler-Smith after he sauntered into Kroll and Conover’s bungalow. When Sudler-Smith confirmed that he had kissed Olindo, Conover looked visibly excited. “That’s my ex-girlfriend…” Conover said.
“It’s not a lie,” Sudler-Smith said. He added (and his words slurred with a cocktail in hand): “Who gives what? There are other reasons, not just a random connection. It’s none of your business, so we don’t have to explain ourselves in any way.”
Though Conover patted Sudler-Smith on the back, he added, “F*** you, Whitney.”
Did Whitney Sudler-Smith break the bro code in Southern Charm? Craig thinks he did it
Later at the bar, Conover told Sudler-Smith he broke the bro code by dating his ex-girlfriend. “I don’t understand her obsession with you,” Conover said. “But anyway. It is your life.”
“I mean, Naomie can do whatever she wants,” Conover insisted in a confessional. “But I think it’s dodgy of Whitney. The Bro Code rules are sometimes complicated. I understand that. But it’s still my ex-girlfriend. Like… what the hell?”
As some of the group gather around the campfire, Rose tells Conover that the connection isn’t personal. But Conover replied, “I was just disappointed when I heard that.”
Later, the group explodes at Conover, but not specifically because of Sudler-Smith’s association with Olindo. Rose responded to him. “I think that part of you likes being around people who didn’t know the Craig from eight years ago,” Rose told Conover. “And a part of you resents the fact that we’ve known you from your deepest side.”
Those comments don’t sit well with Conover, especially when Sudler-Smith said to him, “You’ve become more of an asshole.” Oops
southern charm is Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
