I feel like Stephen McGee was everyone’s favorite cast member from the first season of Summer House– well except for Lindsay Hubbard and Everett Weston. They are not Stephen’s biggest fans and vice versa. As the newcomer to the group, Stephen wasn’t really involved in most of the drama. Instead he provided the fans with “that’s exactly what I was thinking” commentary in response to the group’s antics.
Even though the first season is (sadly) over, Stephen still has a lot to say about what went down last summer and since the show started airing. He shared his opinions on the cast’s love lives (including his own) and he even revealed who actually paid for the summer house last summer.
When I watched the episode of Summer House with Lauren Wirkus laying into Cristina Gibson for “accusing” Jaclyn Shuman of flirting with Carl Radke, I was wondering what Lauren would think watching the previous episodes because it did come across like Jaclyn was flirting with Carl. She kept talking about sleeping in the same bed with him, so I thought that was pretty “flirtatious,” but Jaclyn provided some back story to explain that conversation. Will it make the viewers look at their interaction with a different perspective?
Believe it or not, but her explanation does make sense. Do I still think she was flirting with Carl? Yeah, I do. It seems like Jaclyn flirts with everyone and the whole cast (except for Cristina) is okay with it. Still, I have to say that I was surprised when she shared some additional information about her conversation with Carl.
It doesn’t seem like Everett Weston is actually into all of the drama that goes down on Summer House. He comes off like a loyal boyfriend who’s willing to do anything to take up for his girlfriend Lindsay Hubbard. Other than standing up for Lindsay, Everett has been the victim of some drama, courtesy of housemate Stephen McGee.
In the last episode Stephen told Lindsay that Everett told him (yes, I know this sounds like a horrible game of telephone) that he woke up in a bed with four women. It should be noted that Everett was never actually shown saying that and if he did, I’m pretty positive that it would have made the episode. It’s a shame because Stephen was my favorite cast member and now we have to figure out who to believe in this dramatic situation.
The best reality shows are the ones that involve already existing friend groups – instead of just a mix of people thrown together by a casting director. That said, some of the saddest reality show story lines involve the demise of these real life friendships.
Case in point, everyone who has been watching Summer House has seen the slow (and agonizing) end of Cristina Gibson and Lindsay Hubbard’s friendship. Things have become ugly for the two of them and it’s clear that they did not make up since the show wrapped up filming at the end of the summer.
Last night Kyle Cooke celebrated a birthday on Summer House, but all anyone could think about or talk about or not have sex with was Carl Radke. There’s something about Carl, apparently!
While the Wirkus’s are away, Carl’s roving eye will play. And it casts its spell on Jaclyn Shuman who is all too happy to oblige – to a point. Massages in the hot tub – check! Sexual innuendo – Check! Promises to share a room – Check! Willingness to share a bed… uncheck! Jaclyn is one of those girls who just needs attention. Like if there is a peen in the vicinity she is tracking it like the Chanel coat on a mannequin that will be headed for the sample sale post season.
After she throws herself at Carl all night, and invites him to share her room, Jaclyn directs Carl to the futon and turns out the light. She giggles that she knows what she’s doing, and also that it’s going to look sooooo bad to the rest of the house. So bright and early the next morning, she skuttles into the Wirkus twins room to reveal that Carl was snoring the blue balls away on her futon. Lauren Wirkus is still trying to play it cool-ish with Carl, but Ashley Wirkus has no such compunctions!
After Lindsay drunkenly announced that Cristina was fired from her job, she got in a car and slapped Everett in the face for “being rude.” This erupted into a house-wide drunken fight during which Kyle just slurred “sorry” at a bag of chips approximately 300 times, until Everett dumped Lindsay, who hid under the covers until Ashely Wirkus came to console her.
On last night’s Summer House, roommates turned enemies, and Lauren Wirkus demonstrated how to lose a guy you don’t want in 10 days or less.
After learning of Carl Radke‘s “betrayal” in bringing a date to a wedding, then lying about it, Lauren has decided she must confront him to let him know A) she doesn’t care; and B) she does care that he lied; and C) she’s a super chill, rational, understanding, forgiving person who totally doesn’t want to marry Carl and have extremely tall babies. Carl got his karma, however, because he came down with tonsillitis at the wedding and is forced to endure an entire weekend in Montauk, including Lauren’s rambling lecture while sober.
On last night’s Summer House we met the newest housewife Jaclyn Shuman, and Do. Not. Like. So far. Sorry. Also, Lauren Wirkus got a first glimpse of the sleaze-o-rama that is Carl Radke, and Kyle Cooke finally, officially, had his last bootycall with the foolish Amanda. Well that’s what he says anyway.
But first we must break-down the hot tub wrestling match that went on between Kyle and Everett Weston the night before. Ashley Wirkus has never seen water slash so high as when Everett threw it at Kyle’s slurring mouth. Ashley – you could walk to the beach which is probably like 8 feet from you. She crashes Lauren and Kyle’s slumber party to reveal the details of the fight. She’s shocked Everett got so worked up over Kyle trying to simmer down his argument with Lindsay Hubbard.
