News, the 30-year-old reality star opened up about the second season of Bravo's chilly spinoff, Winter House — and why he won't be a part of it. "I had other things that I feel need my [attention]," he told the news outlet without identifying his girlfriend. "I think I got back with a person that I really wanted and like I, said it was a really long run to win her back, so I feel like that was more something I wanted to focus on and I prefer to sit back." "People that matter to me, they are the most important thing and I wanted to give my priority to her," he added. Denver also shared how "serious" the relationship has become. "I've been really happy," he said. "We've been happy and we've been traveling around these last few months. We just came back from a beautiful holiday vacation in Hawaii and so I've been really happy."

"She models part-time but she does interior design and I'm really proud of her," he continued. "That's also something that I always loved about her because she knows a lot about history, she knows a lot about art and all of that is in my background because it's what I studied back in high school and back in university when I studied communication. So we watch a lot of documentaries together and she's really curious about history." Denver made his Bravo debut during Winter House's first season, premiering in October 2021. He is also starring in the current season of Summer House. The Italian model first confirmed his relationship in early February, telling Page Six it's "kind of related to [his] last summer."
