Southern Charm  star Craig Conover has a new leading lady.

Nearly one year after splitting from his co-star Naomie Olindo, Craig is moving on from his past romance with a woman named Larisa Lara, who he’s reportedly been dating for the past two weeks.

On June 25, OK! Magazine confirmed the identity of Craig’s new girlfriend and revealed that the couple has been spotted together on a number of occasions and recently attended the 2018 U.S. Open.

After the golf tournament, Craig and Larisa spent time together at the Surf Lodge and Shagwong’s in Montauk, New York before venturing to Delaware to celebrate Father’s Day.

They also traveled together to New York City for Craig’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live on June 14 and during her visit to the Bravo Clubhouse, Larisa shared the photo below.

According to Larisa’s Instagram page, she splits her time between New York City and Los Angeles and describes herself as the “Happiest, luckiest woman in the world.”

As Craig and Larisa enjoy their new romance, Craig’s former girlfriend Naomie, who he dated for nearly three years, is also involved in a new relationship.  In May, Naomie confirmed she was dating anesthesiologist Metul Shah.

In other Southern Charm news, Austen Kroll is getting some criticism today following some shocking comments he made about the reason for his split with ex-girlfriends Chelsea Meissner and Victoria Bolyard.

The comment about Chelsea was more surprising since the two are costars and still appear to have a close relationship despite their break up.

On Instagram, Austen shared a post with his new girlfriend Madison LeCroy, and a follower scolded him for not trying harder to make things work with Chelsea.

Austen’s response? “I need a woman with a sex drive.” Yikes!

When asked about his other ex-girlfriend Victoria, who threw a drink on him during a recent episode of Southern Charm, Austen stated she acted much worse when the cameras were off.

Austen wrote, “After she threw the drink on me, she followed me home and threw a rock through my window and I had to call the cops. That was the third time she’s had similar freak outs. I’m in a tell [all] mood tonight.”

Austen Victoria Comment

Some fans suspect that Austen was perhaps a little tipsy when he made these comments! He has since deleted his post about Chelsea. Below is a photo of Austen and his new love.

Southern Charm season five airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
