When that came to light, rumors began to circulate Lindsay Hubbard And Carl Radke had broken off their engagement. As soon as the news broke, people immediately recognized Bravo’s bluff. The two summer house Lovebirds have officially ended their relationship, albeit one-sidedly, according to reports.
According to the press releases, Lindsay was completely shocked that Carl called things off as she was too busy planning the wedding. Still, the news left a bad taste in people’s mouths. Everyone immediately started comparing it to Scandoval and other Bravo breakups.
Scandoval brought a lot of press and viewership to Vanderpump Rules, so it would make sense for the channel to try to replicate that. But now, whether the breakup is real or not, Bravo is starting to look like a one-trick pony. As rumors continue to circulate, more and more questions pop up out of the blue.
Is Carl Bravo manipulating? Or the other way around?
In a Bravo-themed subreddit, u/Yachtttstew started a thread entitled “Why does everyone keep [sic] ‘Cameras resumed’ over ‘Summer House’ split? The user pointed out that Summer House always finishes filming on Labor Day. In theory, the cameras should remain switched on at the weekend. To some, this was evidence that Bravo was creating and/or manipulating the situation.
Then another user jumped in and really started dishing. “This will sound like a sketch,” wrote u/linds360, “but I have a friend of a friend who works with Danielle [Olivera] on her new app Donne and was in the house filming. She confirmed yesterday that cameras were being called (by Carl) over the breakup.” The Reddit user has a point. That sounds sketchy at best.
But even if the claim were true, it would raise more questions than it answers. If Carl calls the producers, does that indicate the breakup is real and Lindsay was caught off guard? Or is it just the opposite, and the whole thing was coordinated with Carl’s approval? Chances are there will be no answers to these questions, especially as this rumor remains unfounded.
Tell us: do you think Carl called the cameras? If so, what does that say about this situation?
Is Katie’s idea a stroke of genius?
The red flags waved.
I hope Lindsay can remain inactive.
