It’s time for a Summer House Recap! After watching the VanderPump Rules reunion, I think we all need a fun show to decompress. I can only seethe at Jax and his minions for so long. We pick up where we left off last week at Topping Rose, celebrating Kyle Cooke’s birthday. Danielle Olivera fesses up to Lindsay Hubbard that she told Paige DeSorbo about Kyle’s alleged ‘cheating again’ rumor. Lindsay is PISSED. So as one does when they do not want attention, she throws a fit and causes a scene. Danielle cries in the corner. NOTHING TO SEE HERE PEOPLE! Paige finally gets Lindsay’s attention to assure her that she will not say anything to Amanda Betula. Paige is truly the Lindsay whisperer, she has Lindsay calm and pacified. Crisis averted. Paige continues to awe and amaze.
Later that night, the gang goes back to the Summer House. Everyone is drunk and getting it on. I think this is the most sex the house has gotten in any season, am I right? It even affects Paige! She crawls into bed with Carl. After a quick make out session, she smartens up and crawls into Lindsay’s bed an hour later. Carl Radke woke up in the morning ghosted. That sound you heard was all the women Carl has ghosted over the years rejoicing.
Loose Lips Sink Summer House Ships
The next morning, no one wakes up hungover. It is truly amazing. Danielle goes to Lindsay’s room to apologize, but Lindsay is not ready to accept it. Lindsay tells Danielle how betrayed she feels by Danielle gossiping to Paige. While everyone is hanging by the pool, Lindsay pulls Kyle aside to talk. She tells Kyle that she heard about the cheating rumor. Kyle cannot deny cheating on Amanda as he cannot remember that night. Lindsay wants to know why he is sabotaging this relationship. Though Kyle struggles with monogamy, he feels that he has changed his cheating ways. Kyle tells Lindsay that he is going to propose to Amanda. He is not going to wait a year to tell Amanda about this rumor, not with the cameras rolling. He is going to tell Amanda right now. At the pool. With everyone around. Should go swimmingly!
Kyle tells Amanda that he may have made out with a random girl but cannot remember. Amanda leaves the pool area, mid conversation. She has been down this cheating road before so she wants off the ride. Kyle follows her to tell her how sorry he is. Amanda is embarrassed that Kyle cannot even deny the rumor since he got blackout drunk. There are zero rumors about her cheating on him, it is not a lot to expect the same in return.
Blackouts Are Not Becoming
The whole house is shooketh with this news. Paige and Lindsay console Amanda. Amanda wants Kyle to stop the heavy drinking. Kyle very, very poorly attempts to apologize to Amanda. What girl does not want to hear how her boyfriend of three years has not flirted with a girl in months? The rest of the house observes from the deck. Lindsay tells Carl that he should help Kyle apologize. Carl tells Lindsay that she should stop making suggestions.
The rest of the gang pack up to leave the Hamptons. Everyone is leaving on a somber note. Thanks a lot Kyle! Kyle and Amanda have the most awkward drive home ever. Amanda knows that if Kyle cheated again, she has to break up with him. She wants to know the truth about what happened. Kyle feels bad but cannot say that it did not happen. Amanda tells him to contact the girl he allegedly cheated with to find out the truth. I am very curious to see where this goes.
Berning In Hell
Back in the city, everybody’s working for the weekend. Our Hannah Berner is branching out from her job to start her own podcast. It will be her interviewing successful people about their worst “hell” moments. Hannah wants Jordan Verroi as her guest to get to the bottom of what he is suppressing. She could care less if Jordan is gay, straight or Darthrakien. She just wants him to be real.
Hangin’ On A Cheating Cliff
Kyle Facetimes with his mom while she was undressing. Do not ask. Kyle tells his mom about THE rumor. His mom questions if he has been over drinking, which of course he has. His mom advises him to prove with actions that Amanda can trust him. For example, keep his tongue out of other women’s mouths. Speaking of moms, Lindsay surprises Carl by bringing his mom to the city for a visit. Carl is visibly surprised and beyond happy to see her. He has been down in a funk, all he has wanted was to see his mom.This made my heart super happy. Good on Lindsay for giving a happy surprise for once!
Next, we have Kyle waiting outside of Amanda’s office with flowers. She has not been answering Kyle’s calls. Kyle wants to talk, but Amanda wants receipts. She wants to know if Kyle has spoken to the girl that he supposedly cheated on her with. He says that he DM’d her, so he takes out his phone to show her the DM’s. We wait with bated breath to see her response and….damn it! Of course it is a cliffhanger. UGH! Did the girl reply to his “Hey, do we know each other?” DM? Did Kyle cheat? Will Amanda forgive him yet again? Tune in next week to find out!
Next week on Summer House we also have Carl’s mom visiting the gang in the Hamptons. Lindsay has a date with Peymon. Amanda has dinner with her parents who question what she is doing with Kyle. Jordan admits to the ladies of the house that he has been holding something back. What a cliffhanger! Let’s discuss more in the comments. See you there and come back next week for the big reveal on my next Summer House Recap!
