Summer House

Kyle Cooke in a mullett wig

On last night’s Summer House, Fourth Of July fell on a Monday, which meant the party continued for one more lovely day!

Despite having to venture back to the city to begin a hellacious 3-day work week, the housemates threw a ‘casual’ BBQ brunch, where they frolicked in flag-adorned wardrobes, then strapped on their respectable fisherman’s sweaters and chinos to jettison back to reality later that evening, or in some cases, 4 am the following morning.

Yes, in Montauk every minute is a minute you could be consuming a cocktail, or dealing with a c–k! (or is it dick – I’m conflating the two with good reason here). The rules of Summer House are governed by Kyle Cooke and his roving eye.

Stassi Schroeder & Kyle Cooke

Stassi Schroeder had Kyle Cooke as her most recent podcast guest. Kyle is the blonde guy from Summer House who compared Stassi (in her turtleneck swimsuit) to Steve Jobs. “That scene made my year,” Stassi laughs. Kyle actually wore a turtleneck to the interview.

Apparently, Kyle is more than just a drunken womanizer! He’s a businessman who is starting an app to provide dating advice in 2017. Stassi quizzed him, and they dished on their disastrous ‘hook-up attempt’ in Montauk, some behind-the-scenes Jax Taylor gossip, and Kyle’s various business ventures. (Yes, he already has products for the Bravo Home Shopping Network!).

Kyle is very well-spoken and sounds thoughtful and intelligent. I actually enjoyed listening to his perspectives.

I have to be honest, I was annoyed with Summer House before I saw any of it. I wasn’t here for Bravo’s attempt to trick me into watching by not-so-subtly having the Wirkus twins show up at SUR to have lunch with Stassi Schroeder during Vanderpump Rules. It felt a little contrived. Nevertheless, when they previewed Summer House during another Pump Rules episode, I fell for the trick full force and loved the show. I didn’t want to love it, but I actually did and I think you should give it a chance as well.

First off, if you’re anything like me i.e. someone who watches every show on Bravo, then you’ll just end up viewing this one anyway. So why delay that and end up binge watching when you can just get into it straight out of the gate? If that’s not enough to convince you, I have some other reasons.

Summer House premiere - Wirkus Twins

If Bravo tricked you into checking out Summer House by adroitly tucking it onto the end of Vanderpump Rules, then you are in luck because here is a recap.

If you haven’t yet been wooed by the idea of men-children in tight white chinos paired with pastel polo shirts, then I implore you to tune in OnDemand, if only to better appreciate this recap. Because taking a cue from any good Bravolebrity, everything is about Me! Me! Me! Even Summer House. Last night we got our first taste of Montauk living from a bunch of late-twenty/early-thirty something New Yorkers who spend their summers in a rented mansion partying, playing girls (and each other), and wearing pastels.

Summer House - Season 1

Bravo is kicking off the new year with new shows and tonight we’ll get our first glimpse of the much contested Summer House!

With the least popular members of Vanderpump Rules partying in Montauk for Stassi Schroeder‘s birthday (a national holiday if you are a self-absorbed brat!), they introduce us to Summer House via Stassi’s friendship with Lauren and Ashley Wirkus.

What this means is TWO HOURS of Vanderpump Rules drama! Is that a good or bad thing? I don’t know… What I do know is that you can meet the cast of Summer House below!

Vanderpump Rules & Summer House cast in Cabo

Several of the stars of Vanderpump Rules headed to Cabo to party into the New Year. Along for the trip were Lauren Wirkus and Ashley Wirkus, twins, and stars of the new Bravo show Summer House. (They made a cameo on Pump Rules earlier in the season).

Kristen Doute, her boyfriend Carter, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor, Tom 2 and Katie Too, plus Stassi Schroeder and their friend Rachel O’Brien all hopped on a plane to spend New Year’s Eve beach-style. Naturally, since reality stars cannot do anything without a selfie-stick in the hand which isn’t holding a cocktail, the cast shared plenty of photos of their debauched and relaxing beach week.

The fact that Montauk residents are against Summer House is not at all surprising. I know the Bravo reality TV show has not even aired yet, but there were reports that people were annoyed when it was filming, so it was inevitable that they were going to be upset when the previews started to surface.

Obviously, there is going to be even more protest once Summer House episodes start airing on Bravo. The same thing happened with Jersey Shore and pretty much any reality show with a location that’s integral to its story lines and marketing. The irony is that all of the protests against these reality shows bring them even more attention and possibly increase viewers.
