Bravo’s latest show Summer House has only aired two episodes, but it caused an uproar before it even aired thanks to the Montauk residents who didn’t want their city to be portrayed as a party destination. Even if Montauk is not hard partying town, the Summer House cast members love to turn up and they are not sorry about that – at all.
The single sister Lauren Wirkus and the cast bromance members Kyle Cooke and Carl Radke opened up about their personal experiences spending their summer weekends partying together in Montauk. Was it an eye-opening interview? No, not at all, but I have to say that there is something refreshing about new reality stars talking about their show without PR training or products to endorse on Instagram. They kept it real and they like to have a good time.

During an interview that aired on Pix 11, Lauren, Kyle, and Carl talked about their new show and why they enjoy turning up in Montauk. So no, we don’t really learn a whole lot about them, but I do find this cast to be entertaining in a no holds barred early Vanderpump Rules sort of way.
When Kyle was asked to comment about a previous remark he made about how it’s so great to be a guy in the Hamptons, he did not take the opportunity to clear up his statement with something more politically correct. Instead, he just said, “We might have a leg up. There’s less pressure.” Thankfully for Kyle, he’s not really famous yet so this remark slipped under the radar. I feel like anyone else would have had a major image crisis for this seemingly sexist perspective.
When Lauren was asked if Kyle‘s thoughts were accurate, she said, “I beg to differ,” without adding much else to the conversation.
Carl joined the conversation when the interviewer questioned him about his relationship with Lauren after she saw their hook-ups on the show. When asked, “Are you guys dating?” Carl gave the answer that I would expect him to: “I mean, we are really very close.” And of course, Carl followed it up with, “You gotta tune in Monday at 10.” Gotta love it.
The interviewer seemed to be baiting Kyle with this riveting question: “Do the Hamptons live up to the reputation of being a place the rich and spoiled? Or no?” Wow. What a blunt and insulting question, man. Kyle had a pretty good answer though. He countered, “We as a group, we work hard, we play hard. None of us come from money, but I think that is one of the reasons we gravitate toward Montauk.”
And then Kyle started talking about Montauk’s other attributes: “It’s laid back. It’s chill. It’s got a great surf community, fishing, and a nice change of pace – and plenty of Rosé.” Can’t forget the wine. #Priorities
Was this the best interview? No. Did it make me love this cast. Yes, it did. I enjoy this show to see them partying and making stupid decisions, not to see them give politically correct and articulate explanations for every facet of life. I hope the show blows up, these people get famous, and they all end up doing more press.
TELL US – ARE YOU ENJOYING SUMMER HOUSE SO FAR? DO YOU THINK THIS SHOW MAKES MONTAUK LOOK BAD OR IS THE TOWN JUST A BACKDROP TO THE CAST’S ANTICS?
