What happens in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas for Southern Charm stars Naomie Olindo and Craig Conover as their secret hook-up was revealed. In the season 8 premiere, the pair admitted they hooked up in Las Vegas while they were both in the city with separate friend groups. In the wake of Naomie’s split from Metul Shah and her return to Charleston, it seems there was some unfinished business between the ex-couple.
Naomie and Craig dated for three years and broke up in 2017. She explained there were several little things leading to the breakup, and ultimately they were just two different people who weren’t meant to be together. Naomie went on to date Metul Shah and left Southern Charm to focus on her business and her relationship. While her business grew, her relationship fell apart when Naomie found out Metul had cheated on her. Now, she is back in Charleston, and fans are excited to see what is next.
The rendezvous was first brought up by Leva Bonaparte, who was in Vegas at the same time as Craig and Naomie. Craig went on to tell Kathryn Dennis over the phone, expressing that they met up and had some fun, ultimately confessing they hooked up. The hook-up was around the same time that Craig started dating Paige DeSorbo from Summer House; however, he and Paige were casual at the time. Craig and Naomie have a long history, and it is clear there is still love between them, but Naomie expressed their hook-up was more about closure. Now Craig is fully committed to Paige, and Naomie completely supports them. Even though Kathryn’s thirtieth birthday party during the Southern Charm season 8 premiere was a bit awkward to watch, it seems they are cordial and mature about the situation.
Fans are not convinced that it is over between Craig and Naomie, but they are happy to see him with Paige. In a recent Reddit thread created by Southern Charm fan u/Repulsive-Dinner-716, agreed that Craig and Naomie never had closure, which was kind of a big slap in the face for Metul. Naomie seemingly moved on from Craig once she and Metul started dating, but she basically confirmed this season that she was never truly over Craig. Fans also believe now Craig is with Paige, he finally has the upper hand over Naomie, who always had the final say in their relationship. Other fans are happy they finally got the closure they needed to move on.
The Craig and Naomie hook-up revelation during the Southern Charm season 8 premiere came as a shock to fans, but the news started the season with a bang. There is not much more known about Craig and Naomie’s hook-up, but fans are eager to see how it unfolds. Craig seems happy with Paige, and fans are hopeful that their relationship works out, but now that he is filming with his ex Naomie, anything could happen. Whichever way it plays out, fans are excited to see what is next for Naomie and Craig on Southern Charm season 8.
