Danielle Defends Her Craig Comments, but Paige is Hitting Back: "The Audacity..."

Paige DeSorbo insisted on the Summer House After Show that Danielle Olivera barely knows her boyfriend, Craig Conover.

By Allison Crist

It's safe to say that Paige DeSorbo did not appreciate Danielle Olivera questioning her relationship with Craig Conover on Season 8, Episode 9 of Summer House (which aired April 18). 

How to Watch

Watch Summer House on Bravo Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.

She made that clear on the subsequent episode of the Summer House After Show. Danielle, meanwhile, doubled down on the assertions she previously made — including the notion that Paige is giving Craig "nothing." 

"Like, giving nothing because I think that he's way more sensitive," Danielle said on the Summer House After Show. "For example, she would say, 'I'm looking for a new apartment,' and she'll shoot down looking at places together or having his input. She's like, 'It's my place.'" 

"It just seems like she shoots him down if he wants to be part of something," Danielle concluded.

Paige Says Danielle Barely Knows Craig

Reflecting specifically on Danielle's remark about Paige giving Craig "nothing," Paige said on the Summer House After Show, "If Amanda and Ciara [Miller] came up to me and said, 'Hey, we think you give Craig nothing,' I'd probably think about it and evaluate it." 

However, with Danielle being the one to say it, Paige recalled thinking, "Wait, have you met Craig?"

"Genuinely, in my head, I was like, 'I don't know if you've ever hung out with Craig more than twice,'" Paige continued. "So I'm like, I don't even know how you would know that."

Paige went on to acknowledge that "everyone's entitled to their opinion," but, "I know in my heart and head how much I've done for Craig in terms of his self-esteem, in terms of his health — I mean, I changed his hair and he looks phenomenal," she said with a laugh. "So, I didn't really take that much offense to [Danielle's comment] — not like the actual words she said — 'cause I knew she didn't know what she was talking about. So, I wasn't even offended by that. I was offended at the audacity." 

Amanda Batula Tells Danielle Olivera She Was Too "Harsh" on Paige DeSorbo

Sitting alongside Danielle on the Summer House After Show was Amanda Batula, who also was in disagreement with Danielle's assessment of Paige and Craig's relationship. "To tell someone they're giving nothing," Amanda said, "it's a little harsh."

What's more, to Danielle's point about Paige's apartment search, "I think she's really proud of where she is and what she's done and what she's built," Amanda said, echoing what Paige herself has said before. "She doesn't want to have to depend on Craig's paycheck or money towards rent."

Amanda clashing with Danielle on the After Show comes after both she and Paige expressed their frustration with her during the latest Summer House episode. 

As Paige put it in a confessional interview, "I feel like Danielle is foaming at the mouth to say anything about Carl [Radke] and Lindsay [Hubbard], but she can't because she knows what happened to her last year. So, she's like, 'Who can I pick apart now? Who's around?' And here I am."

"Please call Lindsay and get her back here to take her friend," Paige added. "We made a mistake. We don't want her anymore. This has been too much."

Amanda shared a similar sentiment in conversation with Paige. "I might eat my words," she said, "but I kinda get where Lindsay was coming from last summer."
