Premium- Summer House -Here's What People Need To Understand About Guys Like Craig Conover
If there is one thing everyone knows about me it's that I'm a huge Bravo fan, so as you can imagine I was beyond excited when the news broke out that Paige DeSorbo from Summer House and Craig Conover from Southern Charm were dating. I have been a die-hard Paige fan since her Summer House debut on Season 3 and was thrilled that she finally found someone that seemed like her perfect match... until Episode 3 of the new season aired.
On the Monday, January 31 episode of Summer House, Craig was visiting his new bae Paige out in the Hamptons when Lindsay brought up his supposed "friends with benefits" relationship with Kristin Cavallari, which Paige confronted him about. (Kristin, hilariously enough, denied the hook up in an article that came out after last week's episode aired.)
Instead of calmly having a conversation with Paige about the rumors, Craig lost his shit and lashed out on the Summer House ladies. "If you let Lindsay get in your head you are weaker than I thought," Craig yelled to Paige as she and the other girls went in her room.
This was the first moment of the episode that red flags starting waving around my brain, but it definitely wasn't the last.
A lot of us have dated a guy like Craig, and from my experience it usually doesn't end well. I had a boyfriend in college who treated me the exact same way Craig treated Paige that night: He would blame my friends for telling me rumors about his infidelity (which were always true), would interrupt me constantly when I was trying to get my point across, and a lot of other upsetting behaviors. When I was dating this person, I was about 20 years old, and as I matured and grew up, I realized that this was not acceptable behavior and I eventually dumped his sorry ass.
