Craig Conover is ready for Paige DeSorbo to sew south with him.
The ‘Southern Charm’ star tells Vidak For Congress exclusively that it is becoming increasingly difficult not to live in the same city as his girlfriend ‘Summer House’.
“You know, long haul works for us,” says Conover, 34. “We’re lucky to be on the East Coast, so it’s only an hour flight, but it’s getting harder and harder.”
Conover, who has lived in Charleston, SC since college, and DeSorbo, who lives in New York City, have officially been in a long-distance relationship since last fall.
“She had just been away for 10 days in Italy, and that was tough,” he says.
“But we’re starting to see the amount of time we spend chiseling to just a few days. So you know, we’ll see.”
Conover’s co-star and close friend Shep Rose joins in and teases his boyfriend for talking about the future so early in the relationship.
“Well, Craig, every time Craig dates a girl for more than two weeks, he brings up baby names,” Rose, 42, tells us as Conover lists names he likes, including Dash, Exit, and Seven.
Sadly — or luckily — DeSorbo has rejected her beau’s ready-made names.
“Paige says, ‘You can call our dogs that,’” says Conover.
Conover’s ex-girlfriend and co-star Naomie Olindo is returning to “Southern Charm” this year after a brief hiatus.
Olindo, 29, tells us that she filmed several scenes with DeSorbo and that she approves of her ex’s relationship.
“I love them together,” she says. “I think it’s really good to see him with someone where he can completely be himself and feel comfortable. And she seems to totally see him for who he is.
“And I think that’s very good. He doesn’t have to pretend. He doesn’t have to hide anything. They can be a very good match.”
Olindo made her reality TV debut as Conover’s girlfriend during Season 3, which aired in 2016, and they continued dating until their breakup in 2017. However, after both went through other breakups last summer, they briefly got back together after meeting in Las Vegas.
Olindo is teasing that fans will have to watch the new season to see exactly what happened when they met.
Season 8 of “Southern Charm” premieres June 23 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
