Two Bravolebrities walked into the Winter House? Paige DeSorbo and Craig Conover were friends for years before their relationship took a romantic turn.
The Southern Charm star and Summer house personalities crossed paths while starring in their respective Bravo shows.
“I met Craig, actually, three years ago and he was single. “I had a boyfriend and I absolutely respected being in a relationship,” DeSorbo said Us Weekly of October 2021, referring to e.g Perry Rahbar.
Although they initially struck up a friendship, DeSorbo and Conover spent more time together in 2021 when they filmed Winter House. The founder of Sewing Down South was dating Natalie Hegnauer in that time.
“When we got to Vermont, I didn’t know he had a girlfriend. So I was a little angry when I first got there. But of course he had absolute respect for his girlfriend,” DeSorbo said Us. “And I’m so happy now that I look back on him having a girlfriend because we just built a platonic friendship, which is, like, the basis of our relationship now. Everything really happens for a reason.”
After completing the crossover series, Conover and Hegnauer called it quits. He confirmed that he was single in May 2021. Things between him and the fashionista continued until the summer, according to insiders, and by the fall the two were officially dating.
“We actually like the long haul. We are two very independent people who have so much going on during the week,” DeSorbo said Us in October 2021, noting that it is likely to appear southern charm, which is currently in production for 8 seasons in South Carolina. “When we get, say, Monday through Friday to get all our stuff done, and then I hop on a plane Friday morning, it’s fun. I feel like we are more present to each other when we are together. We’re not on our phones and planning and doing fun things.”
Conover, for his part, admitted that the two have fallen for each other since filming the episode Summer house for Kyle Cookebirthday 2019
“We’re pretty happy now,” he said in October 2021. “I don’t think either of us have ever dated anyone else in the industry. We understand each other, it’s nice. We really are each other’s biggest fans, which is something I’ve always wanted.”
