The downfall of Bravocon is that we have to hear anything that comes out of Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard’s mouths. Both have made themselves people that we can’t root for, but then again, after the events of the past year, we’d rather root for Lindsay than Carl.
And well, reality television editing has made Lindsay Hubbard one of the most annoying people on television.
But as we watched the two get engaged, we knew that something was a foot. We agree with and believe what Paige Desorbo said at last years Summer House reunion – something along the lines of they set up their engagement for a photo opp (not those exact words, but we’re paraphrasing our impression of what was said). Those two always seem to want to have a bigger storyline than they have had.
Now, as they settled in and watched Kyle and Amanda, as well as Paige and Craig become media darlings, is there any shock that they seemed to do everything this past year, keeping it a media moment? Nope. But we also aren’t shocked that they’ve managed to keep the reason that they broke up under wraps, because hey, that will keep people talking for a few months.
And you know what else will keep people talking? Well, talking about their breakup at Bravocon.
Radke sounds like he’s doing his best to spin it in a way that makes him look redeemable, but after knowing that he called producers to film the breakup conversation – there is no redemption.
“We had a really rough summer and I think people will see that,” Radke told People on Friday (November 3) while at Bravocon, “But it just shows the gravity of the situation when I really deep down felt like I needed to have a conversation with her about where we were at in our relationship and moving forward with the wedding.”
That’s a contradiction to what Lindsay said. The day after Radke spoke to People, she spoke to US Weekly and said, “OK, listen, I don’t like this narrative that we fought all summer. We did not fight all summer — at all. That’s why it was an ultimate blindsiding, because we had a couple of arguments in the beginning. Normal couples [have] arguments.”
“It was like, ‘What is happening right now?’ So, this whole idea that it was like we had a rough summer [is wrong]. This was the best summer. It was the most fun summer in the last couple of years of Summer House. Even Kyle agrees! Everyone agrees with that. All the girls, everyone. I don’t like this narrative that this was a rough summer, because it was not.”
Like we said, we’re more likely to believe Lindsay over Carl. But hey, keep trying to remain relevant and not look like an asshole Carl.
