Craig Conover first opened up about his Adderall addiction on the Southern Charm Season 6 reunion, but recently went into more detail ahead of the release of his debut memoir, Pillow Talk: What’s Wrong with My Sewing?
Back in 2019, the Bravo star called that he was prescribed Adderall when he was in law school to treat ADD. He shared that he should stop taking the drug after school, but didn’t.
At the reunion, Andy Cohen asked Conover why he seemed so much healthier in the Bahamas after his split from Naomie Olindo, and he said it was because he stopped taking the addictive prescription drugs there.
This week he opened up about having to revisit that period in his life as he wrote his memoir, and went into more detail about reactions to his admission.

Conover said he received incredible feedback after getting clean
Conover spoke E! Messages About the moment he finally opened up about his addiction. “It was maybe the sixth season reunion [but] I had never spoken about it,” he shared. “And finally, I just sat there on the stage and I thought, all the questions that were asked and all the issues that were raised, I mean, the answer was Adderall.”
The Bravo star said opening up from that moment resulted in “the most incredible feedback” from others who have been in similar situations. He said:
Some pretty famous and successful people have reached out to me personally and spoken to me and said, “Hey, this affects my marriage” or “This affects my relationship with my kids,” and I’d just never talked about it or heard that anyone talked about it.
Conover described needing to be vulnerable to write his memoirs
The Southern Charm OG said writing his book made him even more “open and vulnerable,” which he described as a “strange feeling,” and that it would be “crazy” to find out how his story will be received. Still, it was important to him to share his full story with fans, including the good and the bad.
“I think it’s me who’s telling the truth about everything, and I’m comfortable with being vulnerable because I feel like people would rather judge me for the whole story [rather] as an incomplete story,” he concluded.
Conover’s memoir, Pillow Talk: What’s Wrong with My Sewing? hits shelves March 29. For more Southern Charm, Season 8 doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it’s been filmed and will likely be announced soon.
Conover tells E! Messages that he thinks fans will love the new season because it feels like an “OG” season. “I mean, that’s about as OG as Southern Charm [can] get,” he hinted. “There are things viewers will see, you just won’t believe. It’s crazy,” adding that it’s “one of the wildest” seasons yet.
