"I had to, like, beg my way back," she said on Dear Media's Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast. "I was like, 'Guys, please. I know I quit and I know I told everybody to f--- off, but please I'm very depressed and I really want to come back. I don't know what I'm going to do if I'm back in Charleston.' They were like, 'All right.' " Conover is now dating Summer House star Paige DeSorbo. He recently opened up about the couple's future together. "I think, eventually, when we have kids or family or whatever, I think we would be in Charleston, but I don't think she'll ever not have an apartment in New York," he said on the Reality Life with Kate Casey podcast. "We're just in a fortunate place that we don't really have to make those hard cut decisions. We're just both so busy right now and traveling. And now, we're getting to start to work together on projects outside of TV, which is really fun." Season 8 of Southern Charm is slated to premiere later this year.
