Shep Rose always seems to have an opinion on everything Craig Conover does, and his love life is no exception. The Southern Charm gent gave his take on Craig's rocky relationship with Naomie Olindo this season and whether or not the couple has it what takes to withstand the test of time.
And believe it or not, Shep actually had something really nice and sweet to say when asked if he thinks Craig and Naomie will last during Monday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen — well, mostly. "I certainly hope so. I really like them a lot," he said. "We used to joke with Craig, 'If y'all break up, well, you know we're all gonna side with Naomie.' And he'd laugh."
But in all seriousness, Shep said that he would still stay tight with both Craig and Naomie if they ever did decide to call it quits. "I really, really have a lot of good, good feelings and good memories with both of them," he told Andy Cohen.
It appears that Craig and Naomie are planning to go the distance with their relationship. After hitting "rock bottom" about five weeks before this season's reunion, the Southern Charm couple got their relationship back on track and now see marriage in their future, Craig and Naomie revealed during Part 1 of the sit-down.
During Monday night's WWHL After Show, Shep also explained why he always appears to be so harsh toward Craig — and no, it has nothing to do with jealousy. "Let me tell you, I love Craig, but he begs to be given a hard time. I gave my little brother a hard time growing up. I consider Craig a little brother of sorts," Shep explained. "I don't think women understand how men interact with each other. I give people a hard time. If I didn't give you a hard time, it means I hate you. If I give you a hard time, it means I love you."
We'll be feeling that kind of love when Craig and Shep go head-to-head in Part 2 of the Southern Charm reunion on Monday at 8/7c. Your preview awaits, below.
