Goodbye Archie Andrews, hello Victor Houston!
Looks like Riverdale star, Camila Mendes, has a new man in her life and she’s not shy to show off their love. On social media at least.
Victor, her new beau, posted an Instagram picture of the two for Camila’s birthday last week, captioning it: “Happy birthday beautiful,” which I guess means they’re now Insta-official!
While the two have been appearing on each other’s Instagram accounts on several occasions, Mendes hasn’t really been all that vocal about her new relationship.
She did, however, open up about her relationship a little in a recent interview with Nylon. When she was asked whether she was seeing anyone, she said that there was “a prospect.”
“No, and that’s, I think, why it’s so great,” she explained, referencing the fact that her ‘prospect’ wasn’t a fellow actor. “It’s somebody completely out of the industry. It’s funny because I’m more hesitant to talk about it because I don’t want him to read this… I actually would totally talk about it right now, if I didn’t feel like, Wait, he might read this.”
According to E! News, Victor and Camila have known each other for years, but have only been dating for about two months. They apparently went to neighboring high schools and just recently reconnected when they were in New York City.
Rumors of a possible new relationship for the 24-year-old actress started making the rounds last month when she posted an Instagram picture of Victor and another friend kissing her on the cheek.
Seventeen magazine reported that Victor double majored in Business and Philosophy at Boston University – so he is definitely not an actor. Which is a good thing, since Camila told Nylon that she’s realized she doesn’t like actors.
“Actors are really emotionally complicated,” she explained. “You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they’re just not. I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment.”
