Craig’s Ex-Girlfriend Naomie Olindo
Craig and TV star Naomie Olindo started dating in 2016. Moreover, it was also reported that they got engaged. However, the couple ended their relationship in 2017.
Naomie Olindo did not leave Craig Conover because anything was wrong with his sewing, contrary to popular belief.
Instead, as Conover detailed in his book "Pillow Talk: What's Wrong with My Sewing?" he was physically and mentally deteriorating as a result of an Adderall addiction. Conover was so tense that he passed out by a dumpster at one point. And Olindo admitted to Showbiz Cheat Sheet that his spiral was the reason she left.
However, even after they ended their relationship Naomie revealed that she hooked up with Craig before the show Southern Charm was filmed.
Olindo said when she bumped into Conover in Vegas it wasn’t one of those moments where her heart started racing and old feelings came flooding back. “I mean it was like OK I know you. I trust you,” she said. Olindo had recently left Shah so she was in a vulnerable state at the time.
She added, “It wasn’t nearly as big of a deal as I think it may get played out on the show.” Gossip that Olindo and Conover had hooked up spread like wildfire during the first episode. Some cast members, who were in the dark ended up having a big reaction.
However, as of now, they stand as friends, Naomie said to Showbiz Cheat Sheet.

Paige revealed to E! News that she and Craig chatted long before they met in person.
"Craig actually DMed me off of a painting that I posted that somebody painted of me, and he said, 'Wow, this is really cool,'" she recalled. "And I said, 'LOL, I know, right?' And then, we didn't DM again for like two years. So, I don't know if I nailed it with that response, or that was awful."
The couple made their relationship public through Instagram.
