Naomie Olindo and Craig Conover broke up before the Southern Charm cameras started rolling again, but the aftermath of their split plays out in painful detail in Season 5 via several awkward confrontations. And viewers saw it coming from a mile away — actually from thousands of miles away. Before the breakup, Naomie traveled internationally — perhaps in hopes of taking her mind off of relationship woes — but it didn't exactly work.
“I was actually in Budapest last summer and this couple came up to me and they were like, ‘Can you dump him yet? He’s absolutely terrible,’” she revealed to People. “I was like, what in the world?”
Though it was pretty remarkable that people so far away would be talking about the intricacies of Southern Charm, their advice wasn't what later moved the needle.
“The only opinions that really matter to me are my friends and family. A stranger’s opinion really doesn’t affect me at all.”
She admitted that sometimes being on a reality show is not in the forefront of her mind unless she's on the road.
“The show is a part of my life, but it’s a pretty small part of my life compared to other things that it’s easy for me to just forget about,” she explained. “When somebody comes up to me in an airport or something I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, OK.’”
