After filming Winter House with the Southern Charm star, who is believed to be in a relationship with Natalie Hegnauer, Paige reacted to a report prompted by an outing she and co-star Ciara Miller had with Craig and his friends in Charleston, South Carolina, during which they were allegedly spotted holding hands.
“Craig is adorable. I think he’s so cute,” Paige said on April 16 episode of the Comments By Bravo podcast, via Showbiz Cheat Sheet, after being asked about the romance rumors. “We have very similar personalities… I texted Craig and I was like, ‘We’re gonna be in Charleston if you wanna get a dinner’ and he was like, ‘Absolutely! I’ll plan the whole weekend.’”
While Paige and Craig have a lot in common, their Charleston outing was platonic.
“I think people saw us all out and automatically assumed, ‘Oh my God they’re all dating.’ The four of us get along so well and it was very harmless. I’m not dating Craig but we’re really good friends,” Paige confirmed, giving a nod to Ciara and Austen Kroll.
Paige also discussed her split from her ex-boyfriend, Perry Rahbar, and she admitted she felt guilty over it.
“It was really hard for me to watch this season knowing we weren’t together–and not because I made the wrong decision or I missed him,” she said.
“But I felt really guilty that I wasn’t strong enough to end it before I went into the house,” Paige added. “It put him through a lot of unnecessary exposure and insight into our relationship which he really didn’t want, which is why he’s never on the show. He just didn’t like the filming process –he knew what the vibe was.”
Although Paige isn’t interested in Craig romantically, she did admit to feeling “attracted” to her Summer House co-star, Carl Radke.
“Looking at Carl and the way the sun was hitting him, I was like, ‘Oh my God,’” Paige confessed of the time they spent together months ago. “He’s a big man. He’s, like, 6’5” and, like, big. I was like, ‘Oh my God you could literally throw me into the ocean and I would say thank you.’”
Weeks ago, after receiving a flirty message from Ciara on Instagram, in which the Summer House star called him “so f*cking cute,” Craig confirmed he and Natalie were still together.
“Well, there’s a lot that happens in Winter House, but no, I’m still with my girlfriend, Natalie, here in Charleston,” he told Us Weekly.
