Leva Reveals the Interesting Advice Craig Gave Her Before She Joined Southern Charm

The Southern Charm newbie also shares what Craig's like as a business partner. 

By Michelle Regalado

Leva Bonaparte is one of the new faces on Southern Charm Season 7, but she’s been friends with the Charleston crew for years. Prior to joining the show, Leva even turned to one of her pals and fellow cast members, Craig Conover, for advice, as she shared during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

In the December 3 episode, Leva revealed that Craig gave her some sage advice to help prepare her for her first official season on the show.  “He just told me to have fun and just relax, and just be transparent,” she told Andy Cohen. “He was like, ‘Don’t try to hide stuff, it’ll always come out.”

The duo actually has some experience working together, as Craig has invested in one of the restaurants that Leva owns. When asked how she feels about having Craig as a business partner, the entrepreneur joked, “Craig is an investor. I think if I hired him for operations, um, yeah, we’d have a problem.”

Hear more about Leva’s friendship with Craig
— and get her unfiltered thoughts on the rest of the cast — in the videos, above and below.
