The “Southern Charm” season 8 reunion just got filmed, but Bravo fans shouldn’t expect to see one guest star at the cast reunion.
“Summer House” star Paige DeSorbo has appeared in a few episodes of the season thanks to her relationship with longtime star Craig Conover. She also had some tense on-camera moments with Conover’s ex Naomie Olindo during Austen Kroll’s Friendsgiving, but the two seemed to sort out their issues.
On September 13, the day the reunion was filmed, the Instagram account “Bravo Breaking News” shared on their Instagram Story the hope that DeSorbo and Patricia Altschul would attend the “Southern Charm” reunion. In a photo posted to their Instagram account, they showed DeSorbo responding to the story, “Hahahah I’d rather die than go to that reunion.”

There was mixed reaction to the news, both in the Instagram comments and in a Reddit thread sharing the news, but many people slammed DeSorbo. “She’s not even going here,” one wrote. Another added: “Because you know you’ll be eaten alive for being so insecure in your relationship and scripts to make Naomi look bad when you’re literally obsessed with her and can’t keep her name out of your mouth .”
One person wrote: “Beware! cool girl alert!! Just too super cool for Southern Charm K Paige.” Another agreed: “She’s just too cooolllllll for something like *literally*” Someone else said, “Why is she acting so over the top.” Quite a few people said that DeSorbo probably wasn’t invited, and one person wrote, “A rather narcissistic way of saying you weren’t invited. Craig and Austen made 100x the storyline for Summerhouse and they weren’t at that reunion.”
One wrote: “Because she wasn’t invited…” Another agreed: “Hahaha, we’d rather not see you at the reunion.” Someone said, “Hahahah good, because nobody wants you there. She would have gone if she had been invited.” Another added: “Why does she even think she’s going to be included? She’s just a friend of the show and not needed for any conversation at the reunion.”
Some people defended and agreed with DeSorbo, including one person who wrote, “If I were Paige, I’d rather die than be at that reunion too. What does that sound like? Lol.” Someone else said, “Love Paige, but she’s not a regular, so she doesn’t have to be there. She’s busy, I’m sure!! Hard worker!!” Another agreed: “I like her, but she doesn’t have to be there, she’s not a regular.” Someone else said, “I don’t blame her.”
Andy Cohen and Conover teased the “Southern Charm” season 8 reunion in an Instagram story posted by Cohen. In the video, Conover said they were halfway through filming the reunion but thought it was about to “ignite”.
Conover shared that it was his turn to be in the “hot seat” with Shep Rose and so he thought it was going to be heated. Cohen also told Austen Kroll in the same story that he felt like he had roasted it quite a bit.
