“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.
