The series premiere of the latest Bravo spinoff, “Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard,” took place on May 7 and introduced viewers to a brand new cast of professionals vacationing in a shared house.

One of the stars of the show, Silas Cooper, is joining the show along with his wife, Jasmine Ellis Cooper. He sounded off on joining the show as a married man and addressed Kyle Cooke’s appearance on the original “Summer House” as the only husband on that show, accompanying his wife Amanda Batula.

“Listen, I have a lot more grace and appreciation for Kyle, let me just say that,” Cooper told Us Weekly ahead of his show’s premiere. “On the show, I’m like, ‘Man, this guy’s always got a drink in his hand.’”

“I understand why, brother,” he continued, laughing. “I understand why. Having all those folks around you and all these personalities and trying to make sure everybody’s good and you got your girl there.”

Jasmine Ellis Cooper Said It Was an Interesting Dynamic in the House, Especially Just After Silas Cooper’s Military Training & Their Wedding

Cooper’s wife and now co-star Ellis Cooper, agreed with him and told Us Weekly, “It’s a lot of dynamics, but it’s fun and you just make your way through it.”

She shared that the show came at an interesting time for the couple because he’d recently been gone for half a year to go through military training. “Him to come back and have the wedding and have this trip, I think we all kind of underestimated how we had to relearn each other,” she shared of her group of friends.

She also pointed out that they hadn’t even reached their one-year wedding anniversary. “So it was exciting to be present for all of our friends, but still show up for each other and have a good time,” she said. “It wasn’t the easiest every moment, but I think we did a good job.”

Cooper said that the two of them had gone through marriage counseling even before they got married, which helped them learn ways to communicate through their arguments. “I think we talked about this during filming that, like, feeling as if we have to uphold like this grand institution [of] marriage is a lot of pressure,” he said.
