Even off screen, the Southern Charm drama never stops.
On this week’s episode, both Austen Kroll and Craig Conover were feeling the intersection of current and former romances.
First, Craig set new “boundaries” in his friendship with beautiful Naomie.
Meanwhile, Austen isn’t sure that he has a future with Olivia if she’s going to be so friendly with Madison LeCroy.
On this week’s episode of Southern Charm, viewers got a walk down memory lane of Craig Conover and Naomie Olindo’s history.
The two dated for three years before their 2017 breakup.
More recently, the two bumped lovelies in Vegas. These days, they’re working on just being friends.
Craig is with Paige DeSorbo.
We can all understand why, given their history, Paige is uncomfortable with Craig hanging out one-on-one with Naomie.
But this week, Craig and Naomie did meet up to talk about Naomie’s awkward chat with Chleb.
Chleb had discussed Kathryn Dennis at length. And not in a flattering way.
“One of the lessons that I learned after everything happened with me and you,” Naomie began.
She stressed: “is never air your dirty laundry with other people.”
Hearing Chleb dragging Kathryn’s name through the mud really put her own past in perspective.
Naomie had already apologized for speaking ill of Craig.
“I have so many regrets about that,” she emphasized.
Craig was not entirely receptive to what Naomie had to say. It was weird.
“Craig is making me really uncomfortable. He’s, like, jittery,” Naomie told the confessional camera.
“Not making eye contact,” she observed.
Naomie jokingly characterized: “He’s literally acting like I’m part of a sting operation.”
Apparently, Craig felt annoyed that she’d called him to meet in person. He was very this could have been an email about it.
“Why did we have to have coffee to tell me Chleb is talking s–t about Kathryn?” Craig complained to the camera.
The obvious answer is because this is a reality show, my dude.
But of course, Naomie seems to just be having an easier time being friends than Craig is.
So Craig told Naomie that he wanted to set some “boundaries” in their friendship.
“I think that Paige is being very understanding,” Craig told the camera
“Even though she doesn’t understand it,” he added, “because she lives in New York where you don’t run into your exes.”
Craig added: “She has been patient with me hooking up with Naomie while me and Paige were figuring stuff out.”
“I don’t want to push it by disrespecting her any further,” Craig emphasized.
In other words, he put his own relationship on thin ice, and is making it Naomie’s problem.
Naomie felt surprised and weirded out by Craig, but she didn’t try to dispute his new boundary.
“I’m not trying to get with Craig if he has a girlfriend. That’s just not how I am,” Naomie told the camera.
“If Craig and Paige feel awkward,” she reasoned, “that’s on them, not me.”
Just for the record … plenty of people are friends with their exes. Yes, evenin New York.
Meanwhile, Austen Kroll also found himself in an uncomfortable spot involving a girlfriend and an ex.
His own girlfriend, Olivia, invited Madison LeCroy to her get-together.
Austen admitted: “I haven’t spoken to her since the party.”
“I don’t want to pursue someone that wants to be friends with my ex,” Austen expressed.
Upon hearing this, Kathryn then quipped to the cameras: “Sometimes Austen can be a petty bitch.”
We don’t always agree with Kathryn Dennis. But she’s not wrong here.
