Guess who’s back with your Summer House recap!? Your girl PCK has missed you all SO MUCH! We have so much to catch up on with our Summer House gang! Quick summation: they’re still varying degrees of drunken assholes. But they’re OUR drunken assholes damnit! Pandemic Summer House could have been a big, fat miss. But, no. Our crew has been SENDING IT! It is so good that they are getting a spinoff called Winter House. Craig and Austen from Southern Charm will be there too, but who cares. Summer House is the best show on Bravo right now. Change my mind.
Carl Gets Devastating News
First and foremost, my heart and deepest sympathy goes out to Carl (and his mom Sharon) for the tragic loss of Curtis Radke. To lose a brother (and son in Sharon’s case) to addiction is the most gut wrenching way to lose a loved one. I cannot send them enough love and prayers. Carl 1,564.0 has come a long way. I’ve always had a soft spot for him and it just keeps growing. The first person he told that his brother passed away was Lindsay, which made me ship them again. I love their bond. She hugged him tight and was super supportive. As was the rest of the gang. It was nice to see them rally around him, yet give him his space. He leaves the house to go be with his family for a while. Devastating is all I can say.
Worst. Day. Ever.
So you guys know how I go hard for the worst people on these shows, right? When Hannah first came on I LOVED her. Now I can’t stand her. She and Luke are still doing the faux relationship thing, which is clearly bullshit. Luke has no interest. Hannah fell for a fuckboy. Get in line girl! We’ve ALL been there. The whole making herself a victim of Luke (and now Amanda/Kyle) is infuriating.
I read today that Hannah is engaged to a guy she was reportedly dating as she cries to Luke. The timeline is fishy but Congratulations. Her fiance is a 16 years older comedian. He’s also Irish, so to me he’s already better than Luke! Haha. At this moment, Luke only cares about getting back into Ciara’s good graces. I’ll go out on a limb here and say how much I LOVE the addition of Ciara! She is the calm, stunning, caring, mature, voice of reason this show needs. She suffers no fools and will not be manipulated by Luke. Also,she kindly but firmly friendzoned him and it was GLORIOUS. I hope she’s in Winter House because she would have a field day schooling Craig and Austen. Ciara: Fuckboy Destroyer.
It’s A Situation-Ship
Speaking of Kyle and Amanda, I’ve finally warmed up to them. Last season I was so upset that they stayed together. Now, I feel like it’s ok. I follow them on the Instaface and they are very cute on there. Here in the Summer House, they are feuding with Hannah. Basically, Hannah isn’t pulling her weight with cleaning. Kyle could have been a little nicer but Hannah WAY overreacted. Hannah insulted Kyle and Amanda, so Amanda threw a glass at her (it didn’t hit her thankfully).
One would think the next day that Hannah would be contrite, but nope. Amanda is clearly upset and wants to make amends, Hannah won’t budge. You can see Paige becoming over Hannah as this argument goes on. Amanda may have her issues but you can see how much she cares about Hannah. Kyle, in the hallway listening, seethes as he hears how Hannah speaks to Amanda. Kyle does not like Hannah. Hannah does not like Kyle. It’s an organic, honest, mutual dislike which makes GREAT fucking tv.
Fish And Chips Are NOT A Sandwich, Stavy!
It’s Lindsay’s birthday, which means her boyfriend Stephen-Stavy better bring out all the stops! Spoiler alert: he doesn’t. I mean, he does in a way, he just doesn’t meet the HubbHouse-high expectations. He arranges a nice meal outside by the pool with fish and chips from their favorite Hampton restaurant. I thought it was cute. Lindsay’s absolute disgust was palpable. I’m not sure what she expected during the height of the pandemic, but a simple dinner outside wasn’t it. (By the way, who else sees Stravy as a grown up Travis from Clueless? Raise your hand if you can’t unsee it now).
Lindsay’s love language is a shit ton of attention and Stravy just isn’t up to the task. When was the last time he made Lindsay a sandwich, huh? An iconic line from an already iconic season. Anywhoodle, they fight and Tra-I mean, Stavy, leaves the house. He doesn’t even tell Lindsay he’s leaving, which is kind of hilarious. Lindsay is with Danielle, telling D how she wouldn’t care if he left this very night. At least one birthday wish came true?
Next week on Summer House: Kyle tells Lindsay that Stravy is gone. Paige and Hannah fight with Kyle. Amanda is caught in the middle. It’s so good to be back! I’m just getting back in the groove so apologies if it’s a bit muddled. Please visit me in the comments so we can discuss further! SO GOOD!
