Craig Conover “Almost Threw Up” When He Heard The Cameran Eubanks Rumor on ‘Southern Charm’

When Craig Conover and I hopped on a Zoom name final week to debate the brand new season of Southern Appeal, he didn’t go online from his own residence. He did it from Austen Kroll’s. “It’s humorous, as a result of I’m truly doing the interview from his home, however it’s as a result of I used to be downtown and he has good lighting,” he mentioned along with his signature smile. It’s truly not that odd contemplating Craig has spent a lot of the final 12 months dwelling with Austen whereas his own residence was below building. “I’m about as shut as you possibly can presumably get to being completed,” he mentioned. “It’s time to have a house base once more. It’s been a journey. Simply one other completely different aspect to this season, which might be humorous,” he teased of the upcoming odd couple shenanigans we’re more likely to see on the present.

However after all it’s not all enjoyable and video games, as a lot as a few of these solid members want it was. Craig additionally reveals his candid response to listening to this season’s huge rumor about former solid member Cameran Eubanks, the private {and professional} adventures we’ll see him embark on, and what we must always know concerning the present’s latest solid members. Plus, he’s promising some thrilling stuff forward. “I don’t know the way it occurs yearly with Southern Appeal, however it all the time simply works out,” he mentioned. “For higher or for worse, there’s simply all the time one thing altering in Charleston and one thing new.”

DECIDER: How is Austen as a roommate? How did you guys get alongside that approach?

CRAIG CONOVER: It was good! I used to be on the Pillow Get together tour for some time within the Fall and Winter [last year]. I didn’t have my home, so I’d stick with Austen once I was on the town. With him, all the time perpetually on-and-off with Madison, he preferred the corporate too. Neither certainly one of us actually preferred being alone. When the Pillow Get together tour was over, and I used to be settling again in, it was time to start out spending constant time in Charleston and Austen welcomed me to remain right here.

However we’re completely different in methods. He’s truly much more of a neat freak than you’d assume. I’m trying round at this time, and I’m like, “This home is actually clear.” He’s simply very specific about the place his stuff goes — and I’m not. I don’t actually care. I do it extra like: I’ll let issues get messy, after which have somebody come clear it.

So Austen and I received alongside nicely. We’ll take care of it this season, however he’s received this thorn in his aspect that when Madison’s not concerned with him, he’s nice. He’s blissful. We received alongside amazingly. She would tease him, and let him assume that there was an opportunity that they have been gonna hang around. He would deflect all of that anxiousness onto me, and it began to turn into an issue. One time I had individuals over and didn’t inform him; he didn’t like that, threw my stuff out into the yard. I used to be like, “This isn’t gonna work anymore.” As hospitable as somebody may be, it’s nonetheless not your home. However it went precisely how you’d assume it could go.

Did you guys simply should make an settlement to not speak about his relationship in any respect?

[Laughs] I’m positive he would love that! And sure. It received to that time. That’s a fantastic segue into this season, and you will note why. That’s precisely what occurred. We have been like, “You already know what? You’ll be able to solely lead a horse to water a lot. It’s not our enterprise, and we don’t care.” You will notice, although, that issues develop that convey us again into it. We might have liked to remain out of it, however there’s a motive that it sucks everybody again.

You say that Shep’s new girlfriend Taylor is the explanation why he’s tolerable now. Possibly you could possibly say to Austen: “Look! This can be a girl that makes a man higher or wish to be higher. You may have that too!”

I imply, I feel we’ve mentioned all the pieces that exists. I wasn’t talking to Shep final winter. I had simply sort of lower him out of my life. He began thus far Taylor and he began to see a therapist, and he grew to become a 1000 instances higher model of himself. She actually does make him a happier, tolerable particular person. With Austen, I don’t blame Madison, as a result of he has all the data he must make an grownup choice. My good friend was like, “Craig, it’s not that straightforward while you love somebody.” However I don’t blame Madison in any respect. He’s an grownup.

Inform me somewhat bit about doing this season with out Cameran. Did you miss her? How concerning the different ladies, did you miss them? Was it noticeable?

I imply, yeah. I miss Cam. We love doing this collectively, and I feel she loves doing it too. That was my rock; it was me and her and Shep because the starting. I didn’t actually see that ever altering. After all I missed Cameran. Shedding Cam made me unhappy, however Naomie and Chelsea, that’s simply sort of the ebbs and flows of the present. Chelsea wasn’t going to permit anybody to see inside her relationship. There wasn’t the rest to speak about. And Naomie’s on her personal path, which, we truly are on nice phrases now. I noticed her at an occasion a few weeks in the past and we talked for quarter-hour. It was actually humorous. I sort of keep in mind Stassi doing this with Jax on her podcast. It’s been so lengthy and we’re each moved on with our lives, however you additionally know one another higher than nearly anybody on the planet. So we might speak concerning the classes we each discovered in our relationship collectively, how we’re attempting to not try this stuff in following relationships. That was a superb time to speak to her. Miss Cam, however it’s okay. The present evolves. There’s all the time one thing else happening.

Effectively, it appears as if she is gone however not forgotten. We see within the first episode that Kathryn brings up the rumor about her marriage to you. You instantly attempt to shoot it down, however I’m guessing it doesn’t simply finish there. Is it bizarre to speak about her with out her being there? What’s that entire expertise like?

I’ve by no means had this occur earlier than. I used to be utterly blindsided. I had not heard this rumor. I couldn’t work out why Cam wasn’t with me. We went up proper till we began filming, after which she simply didn’t do it. I simply had no clue what was happening, after which Kathryn drops this bomb on me. I nearly threw up. Which, I’ve by no means felt that earlier than. However it was like getting punched within the abdomen. There have been so many ideas that raced via my head as a result of it simply didn’t make sense. Both approach, you have been going to be heartbroken. It was the primary day, my first time again on digital camera this 12 months, and I used to be like, wow. You’re inserting a piping sizzling potato in my palms. It was in all probability the toughest factor that I’ve needed to take care of on the present, or the toughest piece of knowledge, rumor, thrown at me.

I walked off, and I used to be like, “What the fuck is happening?” I do know all the pieces, often. I’ve been right here so lengthy that folks like to inform me stuff, and I all the time know. I really like simply getting utterly stunned. Not on this second, however even on the mountain weekend, with the Danni/Madison factor [last season]. I had by no means heard that both. I used to be mendacity on the sofa, like, “Oh my god.” [Laughs]

It was powerful. I received up, and I walked away. However yeah, Kathryn, she selected me to inform. After which no matter how I felt concerning the rumor, it was being talked about, it existed. It was out of the tube of toothpaste. I didn’t know the right way to deal with it, as a result of I really like Cameran a lot. In a single sense, you’re involved as a result of even when one thing’s 99.9 p.c false, even the likelihood, you continue to damage in your good friend. However then you definately have a look at the opposite aspect, and also you’re like, “Effectively, shit. Nobody desires this.” It’s worthwhile to know if that is on the market. Or possibly you don’t! I don’t know. That’s why I needed to ask Leva, who’s Cam’s finest good friend. As a result of I used to be like, this big sizzling potato that I’ve, and I would like handy it to another person. Leva and Cam was once roommates, they usually’re finest buddies. My greatest worry with telling Leva was that she was going to kill Kathryn. I used to be put able the place I really like Kathryn, however I additionally love Cam. So it was powerful.

How about Leva? What was it like having her within the solid full time?

Oh, it was nice! Leva’s all the time been round. The folks that joined this 12 months did a very good job. And by doing a superb job, all that consisted of was being herself and saying what you’d often say even when the cameras weren’t there. You’re not performing. You’re simply being clear. I feel prior to now few years, we’ve been missing that with the ladies. If I’m being sincere, I don’t assume they have been being that clear, all of them. This 12 months, they’re. And it’s nice. Leva and I’ve recognized one another for 10 years, and I joined her and her husband’s restaurant group final 12 months. It was enjoyable having her. She’s received quite a lot of opinions and isn’t scared to say them. It was a enjoyable shock, to be round somebody who was talking their thoughts.

And the way about John? Something we must always find out about him?

[Laughs] Yeah. One way or the other it simply works, as a result of he’s everywhere. You all the time neglect how outdated Shep is till you’re round somebody his similar age that has youngsters and has already had a divorce and stuff. However John, he likes to get together. He goes from zero to 100 actually fast, and also you don’t know what’s going to occur. He’s sort of a bull in a China store, actually. I simply made positive that I wasn’t within the China store, however watching from outdoors. I used to be egging it on. I’d sort of simply instigate. However he’s nice. He’s an excellent good man. However he’s received quite a lot of demons too, similar to all of us. He does some stuff that’s simply completely absurd and stunning. He positively is Austen’s [antagonist] this 12 months. I’m positive Austen simply needs he wasn’t round.

Are we going to see you do any courting this season?

Yeah. Quarantine was an fascinating interval. Yeah, we are going to see it.

Nice! Within the first episode, you say that you simply received Most Dramatic in highschool, however I’d guess that your castmates in all probability provide you with a run in your cash now. Is there anybody that you’d nominate from this solid to be most dramatic?

Effectively, Austen was most dramatic too. We now have the identical image in our yearbook. I’m whispering into the lady who received its ear, and he’s too. Yeah, we each received it.

I imply, most dramatic apart from me? Yeah, Austen is fairly dramatic. And thru the courting that you simply’ll see on this season, I’ve discovered I’m extra dramatic than I assumed I used to be. Or so I’ve been advised. But in addition, I’m like, what do you count on? However reactionary-wise, it’s in all probability Austen.

How is Stitching Down South going and we are going to see you in motion being a businessman this season? 

Yeah. You’ll get to see my HSN journey on the present. They really simply positioned their second buy order with us this week, a pair thousand extra pillows, which was superior. The Thomasville line we have been engaged on, we simply received to launch that.  It’s doing very well. We’ve received some huge names coming at us. We’re excited to launch our vacation assortment and simply hold transferring ahead with turning into a household family identify. It’s enjoyable. We had that 12 months once we weren’t filming, and I might actually deal with the corporate. By the point we got here again, it was thankfully doing nicely sufficient that nobody had something to query anymore. Shep’s moved on to yelling at another person about their life.

Is there the rest you wish to say about this season? 

I simply don’t know what it’s going to appear to be. I feel because the years go on, the an increasing number of true to myself, and the an increasing number of clear I’m, it’s a optimistic factor. I like individuals attending to know an increasing number of about me. The true me. I’m excited to proceed to share this journey with everybody. This 12 months just isn’t the best, however it’s cool as a result of you’ll truly get to narrate to us. We’re going via precisely what everybody else was going via. Somebody was making enjoyable of [us and] mentioned one thing nasty and I used to be like, “It’s not straightforward to do what we do.” [It caused] me to mirror, however I get pleasure from it. I feel it’s enjoyable. I like connecting with individuals the best way we do. There’s positively extra I’d have preferred to share with the courting world this 12 months, however you’ll get to see somewhat bit. I’m glad [this season] labored out as a result of clearly, we have been somewhat frightened there. Nobody knew what to do, however we figured it out. In true Southern Appeal style, shit hit the fan.

Southern Appeal airs Thursday at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.
