Southern Charm’s Shep, Taylor & Austen Address Love Triangle!

Taylor Ann Green is coming for Craig Conover‘s relationship—but he’s definitely not buying what she’s selling.

After Taylor accused her Southern Charm costar’s girlfriend Paige DeSorbo of cheating on him during the Bravo series’ explosive season nine premiere Sept. 14, Craig is shooting down the infidelity claim as total B.S.

“It was just sad for me because I think I realized in that moment how lost Taylor really is,” the 34-year-old exclusively told E! News. “I care about her and I was like, ‘Man, you’re really struggling.'”

Taylor threw out the cheating jab while she and Craig were arguing over her bitter breakup from his BFF Shep Rose, who was unfaithful to her during their two years together. As for why the Pillows & Beer podcast co-host thinks she came for Paige instead of her ex?

“She thought she was gonna get married to Shep and he had cheated on her multiple times,” Craig noted. “I’ve been cheated on before. That will really turn your world upside down and everything that you think you know about the world. So, she’s dealing with that.”

But when it comes to the validity of Taylor’s claim that his girlfriend of two years cheated on him, Craig didn’t believe it for one second.

“To say that about Paige—my reaction, the reason I walked away was because there was nothing I could do to help her in that moment,” he explained. “I kinda laughed because I was like, ‘Me and Paige just sit on her couch and watch TV.’ It would be a little hard for either of us to be out there being secretive. I don’t think that comes with this territory anymore.”

And the Summer House star felt the same way. “Obviously, I had to tell Paige what someone was saying about her,” Craig added, “but she had a similar reaction.”

However, he promises his drama with Taylor is short-lived this season. As he teased, “It comes to a quick conclusion in episode two, which is good.”

See it all play out when Southern Charm airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo. And for more from Craig, watch E! News weeknights at 11 p.m.

Keep reading for everything to know about season nine (so far).


Kathryn Dennis Isn’t Returning

Original castmember Kathryn Dennis announced in January she was exiting the Bravo series after eight seasons. “What a wild ride it’s been!” the Charleston native shared with fans. “Can you believe I was 21 when I first started filming Southern Charm, back in its first season? That was in 2013, and in the decade that followed, it’s safe to say my life changed in ways I could never imagine.”

“It hasn’t always been easy,” Kathryn continued, “but I’m so lucky to have had reality cameras there, capturing so many moments that I’ll never forget (and a few, even, that I’d like to).”


New Castmembers

New to the series’ ninth season are Rod Razavi and Jarrett “JT” Thomas, who aren’t afraid to pursue their female castmates. The trailer even previews a budding romance between Rod and Olivia Flowers.

Plus, long-time friend of the Charmers Rodrigo Reyes is joining in on the antics as a full-time cast member.


Taylor Ann Green & Shep Rose’s Hookup

Despite breaking up last year, it seems the two Bravolebrities might still have feelings for each other. In the trailer, Austen Kroll announces, “Shep and Taylor banged.” Then, the former couple is seen in bed together the morning after, with Shep even calling Taylor a “kissing bandit.”

But Shep supposedly isn’t Taylor’s only hookup of season nine…


Taylor Ann Green & Austen Kroll’s Hookup

“Something happened with me and Taylor,” Austen admits in the first look, to which his ex Madison LeCroy replies by inquiring, “Did you f–k Taylor or not?”

When Olivia Flowers questions Taylor about the alleged PDA, she denies it by saying, “Never, swear on my life.” Guess fans will have to tune in to find out the truth.


Madison LeCroy’s Pregnancy Issues

Newlywed Madison seems like she and husband Brett Randle might be on the fast track to having their first child together.

“Why do I feel so nauseous?” she questions during the upcoming season before visiting a doctor who inquires about her first pregnancy with son 10-year-old Hudson, whom she shares with ex Josh Hughes. Revealing she had a rough birth, Madison shares, “I had a pelvic fracture during the delivery.”

To date, Madison has not publicly announced any baby news.


A Shocking Physical Fight

The season nine preview teases a heated altercation between Austen and JT.

JT screams “do it again” in Austen’s face before seemingly pushing him, leading to what look like a physical fight.


A Mysterious Naked Photo

In the trailer, Patricia Altschul implies that one of the ladies sent NSFW pics to her son Whitney Sudler-Smith. “And then there’s the nude photograph she sent you,” Patricia states, shocking Madison. “We’re not talking about that.”


Leva Bonaparte & Venita Aspen Are Back

Leva Bonaparte and Venita Aspen are also returning for season nine. Leva continues to be the voice of reason while Venita has left her feud with Madison in the past and is focused on new friendships with Olivia and Taylor. 


The Cast Trip to Jamaica

This season, the gang will be heading to Jamaica for some fun in the sun. (And, of course, tons of drama.)


Craig Conover & Paige DeSorbo’s Relationship Troubles

Craig Conover continues to struggle to get on the same page with girlfriend of over two years Paige DeSorbo.

“I’m not trying to plan a wedding right now,” the Summer House star tells the Sewing Down South founder, to which he replies annoyed, “Why would we date if we’re not going to take the next step?”


Taylor Ann Green’s Brother’s Death

Taylor shared in June 2023 that her brother Richard Worthington Green died at the age of 36, though it’s unclear if the new season will address her tragic loss as filming had already wrapped.

“Not enough words can encapsulate who Worth was and the impact he left behind,” she wrote in a June 19 Instagram post. “June 8th, 2023, The Lord called you home. We are going to miss your goofiness, your bear hugs, and that infectious laugh. I will always admire the steadfast love you had for your family, friends (too many to count), your girlfriend and Jesus Christ.”
