12 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Summer House’
Summer House is one of Bravo’s hottest newest reality shows. Following a group of friends – including Kyle Cooke, Lauren Wirkus, Carl Radke, Lindsay Hubbard, and Stephen McGee – who spend weekends together in a summer house in Montauk, the show is filled with a lot of drinking and plenty of drama. Since the show is currently airing its second season, here are 12 things you didn’t know about the Bravo series:
12. They Were Already Friends Prior to the Show
The group of friends on Summer House had been friends for a while before they were cast on the show together. “I think that almost everybody – other than Carl and I, who met at a party in New York and reacquainted with in Montauk — we all go back, especially some of the girls in the house, seven or eight years. Bravo was looking for an existing group of friends, and they found us through pretty serendipitous means,” Kyle told AOL.
11. Vanderpump Rules Meets Summer House
The cast of Summer House first made an appearance on an episode of Vanderpump Rules. Both Ashley and Lauren Wirkus are friends with Stassi, so they invited her, Kristen, Katie and Scheana to Montauk, and all four of them were featured in the series’ first episode. The episode of Vanderpump Rules and Summer House were then blended together on Bravo and it was done so seamlessly that most fans kept watching the premiere episode of Summer House without realizing that it was a new series. This is exactly how Vanderpump Rules was first introduced to viewers. It was through an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
