This past week in New York City, the cast of Southern Charm got together to film their season five reunion show. And after the taping, Craig Conover made a surprise appearance on Watch What Happens Live, and he took the opportunity to take some shots at his ex-girlfriend, Naomie Olindo.
Andy Cohen asked Conover about the reunion, and he said it will be one that fans will not forget.
“It’s going to be fun for you guys,” said Conover. “You have different reactions different years but this year at one point, you were just looking at me like ‘what is going on?’”
Cohen then switched the subject to Conover’s ex – who he split with last summer after dating for three years – and the reality star said that he told Olindo things during the taping that will result in her never speaking to him again. Cohen jumped in and added that Conover said “horrible things” to Olindo, but Conover disagreed.
“I just said that her whole life is a lie and she’s fake,” Conover responded.
Fans could consider Conover to be an expert when it comes to lies. For years he told everyone that he had graduated from law school and was going to take the bar exam. But, at the season three reunion, he finally had to admit that he never finished law school because he didn’t finish his final paper, and therefore he was not eligible to take the bar.
However, according to his social media, it looks like he did eventually finish law school and pass the bar exam in April 2017, but only after years of lies. The South Carolina bar officially swore him in in February of this year, and he says that it is something he wanted for a long time, but there were a lot of speed bumps along the way.
As for his current relationship status, Conover says that he is “finally single,” and there is currently no none special in his life.
Meanwhile, Olindo is in a relationship with Metul Shah, an anesthesiologist from South Carolina, and she recently posted a pic of the two of them together at a wedding. Conover said last month that he is happy for Olindo and Shah, but he wants her to stay out of his life.
Craig Conover says he knows Shah and he is what Naomie Olindo wanted – someone with a real, structured job.
New episodes of Southern Charm air Thursday nights on Bravo.
