Kyle Cooke has made a rather unfavorable impression on Captain Lee Rosbach by proxy of his friendship with Carl Radke. The Loverboy founder was vocal about his concerns for Carl when he was in a relationship with Lindsay Hubbard. When Carl broke off the engagement with his Summer House co-star, Kyle made interview rounds sharing his opinion and what he had seen when they were filming together last.
As a result, Captain Lee puts some of the blame of the failed relationship on Kyle’s shoulders. So when the two Bravolebrities attended BravoCon 2023, they made sure to stay out of one another’s way to avoid feeling uncomfortable.
Captain Lee called it an “unusual moment”
Kyle admitted to The Messenger that he “kind of walked by” the Stud of the Sea at the event in Las Vegas.
“I was surprised to hear that Kyle Cooke said he avoided me at BravoCon,” Captain Lee responded during the November 15 episode of the Salty With Captain Lee podcast.
His co-host Sam DeCavalcanti asked if the resulting behavior was a “highlight.” The reality TV star replied, “I don’t know [if it was a highlight]. The fact that I didn’t have to talk to him probably might have been.”
“It was funny just to find out he was actually avoiding me. He flatters me. I think, I am not sure. That was an unusual moment at BravoCon,” he added. It seems Captain Lee’s ego enjoyed the lack of interaction.
Captain Lee had blamed Kyle for contributing to Carl and Lindsay’s split
In a previous podcast episode from November 1, the former Below Deck captain explained why he blames Kyle for adding stress to Carl and Lindsay’s relationship.
“You know know the guy who really kind of ticks me off in that whole situation? Kyle,” he stated. “I think he contributed to a certain degree.”
Referring to the infamous Season 7 argument between Carl and Kyle, Lee added, “Like that one night he got totally sh*t-faced drunk and called Lindsay everything under the book that you could think of in front of Carl. And Carl sat there and took it and didn’t get all bent out of shape and aggressive on him. Which he had every right to do.”
He also took offense to Kyle’s post-split interview comments and found them very tone-deaf.
“Kyle comes out and says he could see the cracks in the relationship. Wake up, you were part of the cracks. You are supposed to be Carl’s best friend, and all you do every waking moment that you’re talking to Carl is badmouthing Lindsay,” he opined.
“Is that what friends do? I feel bad for both of them. I think people that don’t know should realize that they don’t know, and they shouldn’t speculate because their words have impact.” He added: “I don’t know how Kyle and Carl stayed friends.”
Indeed, it’s interesting that Kyle and Carl’s friendship emerged unscathed from the break up mess. But perhaps speaks volumes as to the true underlying issues. As for Lee and Kyle, it seems there is little reason or motivation to mend fences.
Summer House is due to premiere in early 2024.
