Naomie Olindo posts an update after confirming breakup
Olindo is best known to Bravo audiences that tuned in to Southern Charm. The former reality star made her first appearance in season 3 of the show as Craig Conover’s girlfriend. Unfortunately, Conover and Olindo split up but by season 6 of the series, she introduced Metul to viewers of the franchise. The couple had been in a serious relationship for 3 years and recently made a move to the Big Apple to start a new life. However, the happiness would soon end when reports of a cheating scandal would pop up.
After news broke that Olindo was possibly cheated on, she received tons of support from fans and her close friends. Olindo took to Instagram Stories to share an update on her well-being for everything that was concerned.
“I am so thankful for all of the support you guys are giving me right now. Trust me, I need it,” she wrote in the now-deleted story shared by Queens of Bravo.
Olindo captioned a blurry photo with four friends on her bedside seemingly comforting her through this breakup. Although the star said she feels “lost” during this time, she asked fans not to send hate to Shah.
“This is incredibly embarrassing and I feel so lost,” she added. “I just ask that you please stop sending/saying hateful things to Metul. I have self-respect and I will not be getting back together with him, but he is also in a terrible place dealing with the consequences of his actions. Please don’t be mean, he is human and this situation is punishment enough.”
