Wow, tonight Craig Conover’s partying finally caught up with him on Southern Charm and he was officially fired from his law firm by his boss Akim Anastopoulo.
The 26-year-old legal intern has been pretty flippant about his job all season suggesting that he can get away with anything there—well not quite! Tonight his boss Akim — who is ALSO a reality star BTW — called him over to his home in Charleston to have a talk with him. Akim stated that his staff had told him on multiple occasions that they had not seen Craig in days. He also claimed that hiring him and giving him a full-time salary had been a “disaster”. Ouch! The episode ends with Akim telling Craig he is terminated.
Who is Craig Conover’s boss?
Craig Conover’s boss is obviously very easy going. He did put up with Craig for quite some time after all. And tonight we finally got to meet the man who was paying Craig to not show up to work. Akim A. Anastopoulo, 54, is a Charleston native and a reality show star. He was a judge on National Lampoon’s syndicated court show, Eye for an Eye, from 2003 through 2009. Interestingly he went by the name ”Judge Extreme Akim,” because of the tough love, and eccentric forms of punishment he doled out in the courtroom–which ironically sounds like exactly what Craig needs right now.
Tonight he told Craig he was talking to him and reprimanding him the same way he would talk to his son. He obviously really likes Craig and believes in him, but Craig’s partying had become inexcusable—especially to a Judge!
I suspect Craig’s failure to show up for work also had something to do with his lack of interest in what he was doing. Craig was working in the Pharmaceutical Division for Akim so perhaps that specialty was boring him to tears.
Anyhow Akim is a former South Carolina state prosecutor. He specializes in personal injury, automobile accidents and injuries, premises liability, and products liability.
Some other fun facts about him include:
He was a contestant on Hollywood Squares in 1999.
He played on the Greek Davis cup team with his brother, Arthur.
Previews for next week show Craig headed to Delaware to see his parents who do not know that he was fired.
Craig allegedly took his BAR exams in February.
