The trailer for season 7 of “Summer House” teased that a lot of close friendships will be getting tested, including the longtime friendship between OGs Kyle Cooke and Carl Radke.
However, Cooke recently addressed the ups and downs they experienced during the season and said the two are on “good” terms now. The “Traitors” star told Page Six it was a “raw” season for the friends but added, “Carl and I have nothing but love and respect for one another and everyone’s gonna see that.”
“I mean, obviously, it’s challenging working with your wife and your best friend, so it’s almost like I want to remind people that that in itself is not normal, and then you put it on TV, and it’s another level of crazy,” Cooke said. His wife is “Summer House” co-star Amanda Batula, who works with Cooke and Radke at Loverboy as the creative director. Cooke is the founder of the company while Radke works as the vice president of sales.
“They definitely go through it this summer, and it’s going to be interesting to watch both sides instead of the one side that I’ve heard,” Batula shared with the publication.
