The rumors are … they are not true! Summer house Star Paige DeSorbo is shutting down speculation that she and fellow Bravo-lebrity Craig Conover (from Southern charm fame) are an item after filming their new spinoff / mash-up series, Winter house. Bravo’s best internet detectives were sure something was going on between the two after Paige showed up in Craig Town, Charleston, South Carolina, right after shooting the Summer house Season 5 reunion a couple of weeks ago. Now, Paige says that meeting Craig was nothing more than a coincidence.
“Craig and I are not dating a thousand percent,” Paige tells Amanda Hirsch on the latest episode of Dear Media. Not skinny but not fat podcast. “Actually, I planned this trip, because my brother and his girlfriend were leaving for his birthday and they were going to Miami and then they said, ‘You know what? Let’s go to Charleston. Like, everything is wide open. ‘ And it just landed on our reunion weekend. “
From Paige Summer house/Winter house Co-star Ciara Miller accompanied the getaway, adding fuel to rumors that she is dating Craig’s friend. Winter house-r Austen Kroll (rumors that she closed with ET at the time of the trip).
“Ciara was in New York and I was like, ‘Hey, do you want to take a flight with me like Saturday morning and go to Charleston?’ And she said, um, yeah, “he explains. “So Austen wasn’t even there Saturday night, and … of course, Craig is very accommodating. And when he found out we were going to go, he said, ‘OMG I’m planning the whole weekend.’ And we were with him the whole time. “
“Craig and I have known each other for years because he came to the house like two, two years ago,” Paige continues. “So we’ve always gotten along well. We’ve always been friends. We have very similar personalities, but we’re not romantically involved or anything, but we’re really good friends.”
When Amanda mentions anonymous advice posted to Instagram gossip accounts like DeuxMoi (Y even Amanda’s own page) on the flirtatious nature of Paige and Craig, Paige says that people are reading too much about what they may or may not have seen.
“We were drunk the whole time,” admits Paige. “People saw everything they saw, but it wasn’t like that, it was disproportionate. And like, a lot of people came up to us, because they think it’s just the fact that the four of us were all together and it seemed, ‘Oh my God! going out. ‘But there were so many other friends around us and we were drunk every night. “
Paige also points out that, as far as she knows, Craig is still with his girlfriend of almost a year, Natalie Hegnauer.
“The status of their relationship is none of my business, but I would never want to disrespect a girlfriend or anything like that,” he says. “And I don’t know her, but I don’t need to know her too. Don’t respect that, so nothing like that happened.”
“Craig is very respectful,” Paige adds. “He would never cheat on a girlfriend, and he certainly would never cheat on a girlfriend with me. And then none of that happened.”
Paige recently got out of her own long-term relationship with restaurateur Perry Rahbar. The end of their romance is unfolding in the final episodes of Summer houseFifth season.
“I’m excited for people to actually see my real feelings documented over six weeks, because there were so many times that I thought, I’m crazy. This man is perfect and I’m the one who’s broke, which is true.” Paige shared with ET before the season. “A breakup is never easy [and] There were times when I thought, this is crazy. There were times when I thought, maybe I’ll move to Bali and change my name. ”
“When we broke up, I think we took adequate time to be apart, and he lives in Miami and I live in New York, so we are not going to meet, but we always knew that we were going to be in each other’s lives forever.” added. “We are texting now. He will call and communicate. We are still very good friends, we still have that love and respect, but I think we are both very happy with our current situation. He will be in my life forever. … a Unless screw it up. You never know! Season 6? “
