Page Six learned today that Naomie Olindo is happy to be finished with the reality TV series, Southern Charm. The 27-year-old reality star said on an episode of The Skinny Confidential podcast that she was “so thankful” for what the show gave her, but it was time for her to leave.
Reportedly, Olindo first joined the series back in 2016, and while she was pleased with the opportunities it gave her, it was time for her to go. Naomie explained how she did a cost-benefit-analysis, and she realized the good was outweighing the bad.
As fans of the popular reality television program know, she appeared as Craig Conover’s girlfriend during the third season, but she later joined the cast as a full-time member in the sixth season back in 2019.
Naomie said it was a perfect time for her to leave, and she noted how many others have chosen to stay on the program. She says Chelsea Meissner and Cameran Eubanks had similar thoughts as her.
According to Page Six, it’s doubtful Olindo and Kathryn Dennis will speak to each other now that they’re no longer working together on Southern Charm. The 28-year-old reality star, Dennis, found herself in trouble after she allegedly started a rumor about Eubanks’ husband, Jason Wimberly.
Wimberly and Eubanks denied ever cheating on each other in their marriage. Naomie went on to say how she and Dennis didn’t have the greatest relationship with each other. In fact, she says Kathryn might be the only person she doesn’t get along with.
At the moment, Southern Charm is currently off the air on account of the coronavirus pandemic, but Olindo said there was a chance it was going to start up again soon with a few new girls, one of which is her good friend, Leva Bonaparte.
Fans of Southern Charm know the show is frequently in the headlines, including for one of its cast members, Thomas Ravenel, who was one of the men accused of sexual assault amid the #MeToo movement.
