When Paige DeSorbo came to the Hamptons for Bravo’s Summer house in 2019, the reality series is in dire need of a rejuvenation.
Two seasons in, Vanderpump’s Rule spinoff failed among the network’s more popular shows. Drama between some of the original cast has thinned out. Even Andy Cohen seems like he has better things to do as he hosts his first reunion show. But if anyone knows how to do great makeup, it’s the always chic DeSorbo.
It didn’t take long for the 29-year-old fashion influencer to win over audiences with her impeccable style, budget-friendly style and precise radar for freaks. In season three, she enters the motel with comedian Hannah Berner, whom she hosts podcasts with Giggly Squad, but DeSorbo soon proves that she can hardly be anyone’s normal. In the past three years, as Summer house Having found her footing, the New York native has become reality TV’s Carrie Bradshaw by tackling the challenges of modern dating and female friendship with her signature wit and low self-esteem. healthy.
Tonight, she’ll make us giggle again when Summer house back for a sixth season, and ahead of its premiere, DeSorbo showed The Daily Beast what fans have in store for this season. Among other intriguing storylines, we’ll take a look at the origins of her relationship with Southern charm star Craig Conover, after the two of them appeared on Southern Charm / Summer House crossover miniseries Winter house last fall. At the time of filming, Conover was in a relationship with Natalie Hegnauer, although he had expressed feelings for DeSorbo after they had met a few years earlier. When the 32-year-old lawyer split from Hegnauer in early 2021, the stars eventually linked up with him and DeSorbo.
Even before DeSorbo confirmed she and Conover were dating in October, Deauxmoi and Bravo fan blogs were posting snaps of them sailing around New York City and still haunting the pair. Bravo’s first crossover (at least as far as we know).
DeSorbo told The Daily Beast about the frenzy surrounding her relationship. “I mean, I think the birth of Deauxmoi is one of the wildest things about coming out of quarantine. So when people are interested in where we went to dinner or what we’re up to, it’s flattering. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried that my whole relationship was under scrutiny.”
“I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried that my entire relationship was under scrutiny.”
Before DeSorbo teamed up with Conover, fans watched her entertain a possible romance with glamorous but evasive Italian model Andrea Denver on Winter house. In the trailer for this season of summer house, Denver, who arrives as her new roommate, seems to be having a mental breakdown because of DeSorbo, who has been hanging out with Conover. Fans immediately began speculating about a controversial love triangle, but DeSorbo insists there was no foul play.
“I was very single during the summer,” she said. “Andrea is very single. And Craig is also very single. So neither of us owes the other anything.”
Despite all the water-related work, DeSorbo says things are fine between her and Denver.
“Andrea is one of the nicest people ever,” she said. “And he is a great friend. So it went the way it was supposed to. ”
Summer houseHowever, the central romance plot has long belonged to Kyle Cooke and DeSorbo’s best friend, Amanda Batula, whose relationship has been rocked by cheating scandals and Cooke’s drinking too much. in the past five years. This season, we finally get to see the couple get married, but before convincing us that they probably shouldn’t, including during tonight’s explosive premiere.
“It was definitely difficult because as a girlfriend I want to be as honest and honest with my friends as I can,” DeSorbo said. “But obviously I don’t want to go overboard and say things that don’t go my way.”
Plus, although she’s often vocal and honest when questioning the stability of Cooke and Batula’s relationship, DeSorbo says she’s always known the two would make things worse. .
She said: “I know that they will eventually get married, even in two months, six months, five years. “I know that they are meant for each other. So I just want to always make sure that Amanda feels secure and happy with their decision. And apparently, they get married. I think it’s a great time. I think they figured out what they needed to deal with.”
Another polarizing couple this season will definitely be housemates Ciara Miller and Southern charmAusten Kroll, who started a relationship with the nurse/model on Winter house. He also admitted to connecting with the original in the past Summer house actor Lindsay Hubbard, and in the section trailer, Kroll appears to romance both women behind their backs during his visit to the Hamptons.
Despite the Internet’s criticism of Kroll’s player tendencies, DeSorbo insists her man’s best friend has “a great personality” and “completely understands why girls The girl has a crush on him.” However, she seems to be hinting that things between him and her best friend Ciara are eventually headed south.
“All I really care about is Ciara being appreciated the way she should be,” she said. “And you know, guys are always using floppy disks. So my only piece of advice is that if you’re not treated the way you’re supposed to, there are millions of other guys who are jumping on the bandwagon. So I don’t think Ciara would have a hard time being treated the way she’s supposed to. ”
Above Winter house, we watched DeSorbo and Miller become the tight (but not nearly as dynamic) duo the fashion blogger was once with Berner, who left the show last year after removing most of the cast. . She said that entering this season without Berner was a bit of an adjustment, but ultimately allowed new friendships to blossom.
“Of course I miss Hannah,” DeSorbo admitted. “I talk to her all the time. We have Giggly Squad together, it’s one of my favorite hours of the week. But it certainly gave me a chance to get closer to Ciara. We shared a room in Vermont and we shared a room this summer too. She is one of my best friends. ”
She also invited her friend, restaurant consultant Mya Allen, to stay at home this season. Allen, the show’s second Black cast member after Miller, will step in alongside the show’s first East Asian actor Alex Wach, which seems like Bravo is working to add some much needed diversity to a show. The program is predominantly white.
“Mya is one of the best people I have ever met,” DeSorbo said. “She is really confident and stands her ground and has a strong opinion. I always say if you want the truth about anything, ask Mya. And Alex is one of the sweetest people ever. He’s a little more reserved, that’s normal.”
“I remember my first summer just sitting around eating my first dinner and watching people fight,” she continued. “It was very shocking. And then you get to know the group and you wonder, ‘You know what? I also have an opinion on this. ‘ So I think they did a great job. They really brought new energy, and we had a lot of fun with them. “
Who knows how DeSorbo will feel about her co-stars when their summer together airs and we catch her at the reunion. But for now, she’s enjoying life long distance with Conover, who lives in Charleston, and by the end of January — if COVID-19 allows — she’ll be flying around the US for some Giggly Squad live show in California. And on Instagram, she will continue to dress us all.
