The Daily Dish Vanderpump Rules

Are Craig Conover and Stassi Schroeder New BFFs?

There seems to be a friendship brewing....

By Jocelyn Vena

When Craig Conover called into Stassi Schroeder's podcast Straight Up with Stassi this week, the conversation very quickly turned into a lovefest between the two Bravo stars. The pair bonded over their mutual admiration for one another and just how much their two shows have in common.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

After Craig confessed to the Vanderpump Rules pal that he got into her podcast at the suggestion of his girlfriend Naomie Olindo, he shared with Stassi that he thought that she "would fit right into our group of friends." That observation left Stassi, a Southern Charm fan, pretty excited. "What? Do you realize this is like one of the nicest things anyone can say to me?" she replied. 

Stassi tried to pay the compliment forward when she described Craig's series as a "Southern bougie version of Vanderpump Rules" — a description with which Craig agreed. "Yeah, that's actually how I kind of described it to Naomie's mom," he said. "It's L.A.'s version of us."

We aren't too surprised by that idea that Stassi would fit in with the Charleston group. She is a Southern belle herself, originally hailing from New Orleans.

Now that Stassi and Craig are pals, we are quickly hoping there's a Vanderpump Rules/Southern Charm crossover in the works. Have you heard about how Jax Taylor and Shep Rose are on the path to solidifying a bromance for life? "Yeah, he said that we're gonna all go on a vacation. I was like 'Well that's the first that I've heard of it, but I'm down. I'm down.' I met him and Tom [Schwartz] at the Below Deck Mediterranean opening and they were both really cool," Shep told The Daily Dish earlier this summer. "We went out had a few drinks and they couldn't be nicer really, so if they want to hang out I'm down to hang. I need some new friends."

Now that you know how much Stassi hearts Craig and the Southern Charm crew, check out who she'd want to Shag, Marry or Kill among the SURvers.
