Rumors began to swirl when a source told a popular Instagram account that the Southern Charm star was seen getting super close with Paige at the Uptown Social bar in Charleston on Sunday night. However, they were not alone as Austen Kroll and Ciara Miller were reportedly there as well.
The source told Deuxmoi that Craig and Paige were “laughing” and “closely talking” before they left the bar “holding hands.”
Nevertheless, an insider explained to Radar Online that the hand-holding part is true, but their relationship is strictly platonic as there is nothing romantic going on between the pair whatsoever. The insider went on to say that Craig grabbed Paige’s hand because he was simply being a gentleman by safely leading her past the crowd as they had reportedly been surrounded by a number of excited fans.
This all comes a week after Craig, who is in a relationship with Natalie Hegnauer, was forced to shut down speculation that he and Ciara may have hooked up after she left him a flirty comment on Instagram.
“Who knew my attorney would be SO f*cking cute ?!?” Ciara wrote after the 32-year-old announced the opening of his law firm.
Craig explained that he and Natalie are still very much together, but he formed strong friendships with his Winter House co-stars because a lot went down while they were filming.
“All I can say is that everything that you could have ever dreamed to happen in, like, a show of your favorite people happened,” he told Us Weekly. “It was really, really fun. We can’t wait to be able to talk about it too. We have a great group chat that we talk [in] every day and it’s fun.”
Winter House is expected to air sometime later this year, but Summer House is currently airing on Thursday nights on Bravo at 9/8c.
