Most of the ‘Summer House’ Ladies Attended Linday Hubbard’s Bridal Shower, Including Danielle Olivera, But Paige Desorbo Was Nowhere to be Seen
Photos from Hubbard’s bridal shower were shared online on August 12, 2023. Celebrity jeweler Nicole Rose posted several photos on her Instagram stories, including a picture of a champagne-colored bride-to-be cake and a look at a menu of an “activated bride” drink made with tequila, mezcal, aloe vera, cucumber, melon, agave, and lime.
Tables were set with pink candles and champagne-colored roses.
Another post was tagged to reveal that the celebration was held at Cathédrale at Moxy East Village in New York City. Hubbard, who wore a ruffled, strapless Amur dress, also shared photos that featured the venue, guests, food, and party games.
Other photos showed “Summer House” alums Danielle Olivera, Amanda Batula, Gaby Prescod, Ciara Miller, and Samantha Feher all posing with the bride-to-be, as well as Hubbard’s stepmother and future monther-in-law Sharon Radke.
“I have such an amazing group of girlfriends that were not going to let me get away without having a bridal shower,” Hubbard told People of the event. She added that her best friends, Katie Thiele and Yvonne Najor, planned the shower.
In addition to her girlfriends, Radke showed up to surprise his future wife as she opened gifts. The groom-to-be wore a white suit as he showed up with flowers for Hubbard.
Notably missing from photos from the NYC shower were Mya Allen and Paige Desorbo. Allen has had beef with Hubbard in the past. On her Instagram story, Allen shared photos from a beach and tagged the Curaçao beach Playa Daaibooi as her location on the same day the bridal shower took place.
Fans know that Hubbard has also feuded with DeSorbo. At the “Summer House” reunion that was shot earlier in 2023, DeSorbo accused Hubbard, 37, and Radke, 38, of acting “fake” in front of Bravo’s cameras. She also said the couple’s seemingly surprise engagement was “premeditated” and that the two “just lie” about everything, according to Page Six.
It is unclear if Desorbo was invited to the shower and declined, or if she simply didn’t make the guest list. n nAccording to Page Six, DeSorbo was part of a celebration for Hubbard’s 37th birthday at the Manhattan bar Make Believe earlier in August.
Heavy has reached out to a rep for DeSorbo for comment.
Lindsay Hubbard Previously Teased Her Wedding Guest List
While it may not be a huge surprise that DeSorbo wasn’t a guest at the bridal shower, in May 2023 Hubbard was still mulling over who from the “Summer House” cast would be invited to her wedding.

At the “Summer House” season 7 reunion, which aired in June, Hubbard said of her wedding, “We only want the people there who support our relationship,” per People.
“There’s definitely some people sitting up here today that are going to be there,” Radke added. “I just really hope that we can find a way to remove some of the deep-rooted anger and hate and try and figure out a path forward. I thought today would be that chance, so we’ll finalize the invite list hopefully soon.”
In July 2023, Hubbard told The Sun that she and Radke ultimately “invited a good amount” of “Summer House” cast members” to their destination wedding. The outlet also reported that Bravo host Andy Cohen made the guest list as did “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Whitney Rose, Southern Charm” star Shep Rose, and “Vanderpump Rules” stars Katie Maloney and Ariana Madix.
In addition, Radke previously teased that “Below Deck” star Captain Lee may officiate the wedding.
