All is not well in Charleston.
Southern charmThe September 22 episode saw longtime friends Naomi Olindo and Venita Aspen step into what might be the most shocking fight of season eight yet. The source of said fight is less shocking, however: Craig Conover.
He and Naomie – who dated for three years, broke up in 2017 and had a short-lived reunion in 2021 – have been at odds throughout the season, and their latest disagreement centered on another one fight they had the night before while having dinner with Venita, shep rose, Taylor Ann Green, Austen Kroll, Olivia’s Flowers and Whitney Sudler Smith.
The first time, Craig drunkenly berated Naomie after she brought up derogatory comments he had recently made about her. Leva Bonaparte. He apologized the next night at dinner, saying he would “work on being nicer,” and everything seemed to be fine from there until Venita spoke up.
The way she saw it, Naomie was trying to ‘pick a fight’ with Craig,” Venita said in a confessional. “Keep your sides together and enjoy the steak and have a good time.”
And while she didn’t say that to Naomie at the dinner table, she asked her to “acknowledge” Craig’s feelings.
