Vacation from hell Shep Rose, Austen Kroll Craig ConoverThe latest episode of Southern Charm — and the drama is nowhere near done.
The Bravo series featured the boys as they tried to navigate their relationship on St. Simons Island. Austen was not a fan of Shep, 42. Taylor Anne Green’s romantic issues, which resulted in one of the biggest arguments of the season.
After a night out in St. Simons, a drunken Shep told his then-girlfriend, 27, that he was “done” with everyone butting into their relationship. Austen, 35, overheard Shep’s remarks and stormed off, but not before calling out his longtime friend for his poor treatment of Taylor.
“Shep, you’ve been an embarrassment too long,” the Kings Calling Brewing Co. founder yelled at Shep. “F—king moron. You f—king idiot.”
The Average Expectations author fired back, “You are the biggest embarrassment of my f—king life. You’re a f—king joke. I cannot believe I’m even sharing oxygen with you.”
The following morning, Shep got real with Taylor about where they stand, confessing, “Everybody thinks that I’m bad for you.”
The clinical assistant, meanwhile, told her then-boyfriend that she understood that he could “only take so much,” but she was unhappy with how he handled himself.
“That was an unfortunate end to the night for yours truly,” Shep later told Naomie Olindo, Olivia Flowers Venita aspen. “That didn’t help,” he added, pointing to a bottle of alcohol.
While Taylor and Shep seemed to be in good spirits during the trip, Us WeeklyThey announced in July that they had called it quits after two-years of dating.
Thursday’s episode was also a tough one for Craig, 33, who couldn’t help but get into trouble with his ex-girlfriend, Naomie. The twosome dated for three years before splitting in 2017 — and although Craig is now dating Paige DeSorbo, he and the L’Abeye founder, 30, have had issues throughout season 8 of the reality show.
“I’m definitely more irritable when Naomie’s around,” the Sewing Down South founder told the cameras on Thursday after yelling at his ex on night one.
The drama of Craig and Naomie stole the show again when the group attempted to have another dinner together on night 2 of their vacation. After Naomie accused the Delaware native of not being “civil” to her earlier in the trip, he apologized but didn’t exactly let it go.
“I should never yell at you … but at the end of the day we probably shouldn’t interact too much because you’re in my past,” Craig said before uninviting her to his holiday party.
Once Craig stormed off — for the second time during their Georgia getaway — Venita, 28, got into with Naomie. While Venita claimed she wasn’t defending Craig, Naomie took her accusatory tone to mean she wasn’t being “loyal.”
The night ended with the two women at war and Craig, Austen, and Shep sipping wine and eating dessert in their villa.
