Craig Conover’s debut memoir Pillow Talk: What’s Wrong with My Sewing? hit shelves this week and featured several key talking points, including, of course, his three-year relationship with Southern Charm co-star Naomie Olindo.

The two split in 2017 but their relationship and breakup was showcased on the hit Bravo show and will surely be revisited in the upcoming Season 8 as Olindo is set to return to Charleston. Conover revealed himself E! Messages prior to the publication of his book, that the Olindo sections were the most difficult to write, and described the chapter as “a chapter about love found and a chapter about love lost”.

Luckily for the longtime Bravo star, Olindo was involved in the process and was “interviewed a lot” for this chapter, with Conover stating that he “didn’t feel comfortable telling our story without her being a part of it.” He also spilled that the book’s co-author Blake Dvorak was “almost surprised” that Olindo and Conover were on the same page in terms of their stories and perspectives.

Despite this, Conover revealed in his memoir that as their relationship deteriorated, he felt “betrayed” by Olindo for sharing “so much of our dirty laundry in front of the cameras” in seasons 3 and 4. Us weekly reported.

Conover shared the moment he saw their relationship begin to deteriorate

In his book, Conover spoke about his relationship with Olindo and the moment he felt it beginning to end, Us weekly reported. He revealed that Olindo was part of the group of Charleston folks considered for the show’s first season, but she withdrew on the advice of her family and friends.

Conover and Olindo began dating before season three began, and the OG of “Southern Charm” said it was up to her whether she wanted to be on the show. After she agreed, Conover wrote that he thought he would “ride or die” on the show.

That wasn’t the case, as the two had their first big on-screen fight when Olindo wasn’t on Conover’s side in a confrontation with Whitney Sudler-Smith. He said Olindo knew he would confront his co-star and agreed, but halfway through the two men’s argument she said to him, “‘Would you just stop?'” He concluded, “And that, I think that’s when our relationship started to fall apart.”

Conover also spoke about his breakup with Olindo in the memoir

Conover also went into the details of how their relationship ended, mentioning that a defining moment at a friends’ wedding came during the bride’s vows, when she said she would always be her husband’s “biggest fan.”

“Almost everyone in the audience was crying by this point,” he wrote aloud Us weekly. “But I saw that Naomie wasn’t crying happy tears for her best friend; hers were tears of sadness.” He added:

Later, during the reception, when we were celebrating the newlyweds, she told me that she was crying because of us. I asked her why. “Because I know I’ll never be your biggest fan, Craig. I can’t be that person for you.”

Conover also said Olindo didn’t really mind that he took up sewing. “What bothered her was my schedule; What bothered her was how I was doing what I was doing,” he explained. However, he said he felt like when the cameras rolled, it was like she’d become “the girlfriend she thought the audience wanted to see.”

As Bravo fans may know, Conover is now in a relationship with Summer House star Paige DeSorbo.
