Furthermore also adding reasons on why things became strained between him and Craig in ‘Southern Charm’ Season 8, Shep said, “He wasn’t a very good friend leading up to the last season with reaching out or anything.

Spilling beans on how he’s always feeling caught in between Shep and Craig’s drama in the season, Austen said, “I feel like I’m in between Shep and Craig. I’m, like, trying to hold them. Like, come together. You guys secretly love each other”.
