Conover and Olindo had been broken up for years, but they still talked after her breakup with Shah.

Kroll said he didn’t think Conover and Olindo officially ended their relationship. “We never ended it,” Conover laughed. “No one actually did. We just one day never talked again. But also guys, don’t freak out. I’m not saying there is a future. No. But I’ve been able to since the Bahamas to speak objectively about this.”
