Finally, Summer House fans are getting some answers. Several months have passed since then Carl Radke ended his engagement with Lindsay Hubbard and the professional publicist is ready to share details of the breakup.
Little is known about what happened between the former couple. Of course, the public gave Lindsay space to process as she saw fit and thought she would share her side of the story when she was ready.
Now the time has come. Lindsay joined Nick Viall on his podcast The Viall Files on November 8th. She painted a picture of an unsettled Carl in the days before his separation from her.
“He’s really into me,” Lindsay recalled of the day before their breakup
“We were finishing filming that Sunday at the house and he came at me in a way that felt really gross and disgusting,” Lindsay said of Carl’s strange behavior.
“I get a text message on Tuesday evening saying there’s going to be filming tomorrow. “My radar is going off, my red flags are flying,” the “Summer House” star continued.
Her suspicions were aroused when Carl was more than accommodating to the production team.
“He responds immediately,” Lindsay explained. “He postpones couples therapy, he clarifies the schedule. I just think, ‘This is weird.'”
“I wake up early and go into his room at 8 a.m. and I’m like, ‘Do you know what they want to film with us about today?'” Lindsay recalled on camera the infamous day Carl broke up with her . “He jumps at me. What he said was just crazy shit.”
Lindsay had her theories
She had a theory about why Carl had arranged the interview. Maybe it was a trick to make her react a certain way in front of cameras. Lindsay, tough as she is, didn’t react the way Carl expected.
“They came that afternoon and we sat on the couch. When the words came out, I don’t think I reacted the way he expected me to. And as soon as he said, “You’re not taking me seriously.” I looked at him and I realized, “Oh, he wants me to beg and plead and say, ‘No, no, no, don’t do that.'” I will change me. I will do whatever you need. Don’t cancel the wedding,'” Lindsay recalled.
“He didn’t give me a clue,” Lindsay said of her lack of suspicion. “He hasn’t said anything that suggests cold feet, I have concerns, or I’m not ready, or I need more time.”
Lindsay continued: “He didn’t say anything that gave me any clues. I mean, two weeks before he broke up, I was at my bridal shower that he dropped by.”
Lindsay doesn’t think Carl may have been influenced by anyone else. She said: “Maybe there was a conversation with his mother. I don’t think so, Kyle [Cooke] knew. I think Kyle was caught off guard too,” Lindsay said. The Summer House star surmised: “I really think it was an impulsive, emotional decision made out of anger.”
She added: “I don’t think he cheated. I don’t think there was a big moment, I just think he doesn’t fully understand the commitment and what it takes.”
Summer House is expected to return to Bravo in 2024.
