Lindsay Hubbard revealed the “straw that broke the camel’s back” regarding her rift with Danielle Olivera. The Summer House star – who got engaged to castmate Carl Radke last August – also shared an update on her wedding plans.
A trailer for the new season teased a falling-out between Lindsay and Danielle, who were once strong allies. Many viewers were shocked to see glimpses of arguments and tension amidst the friendship.
Speaking with Us Weekly, Lindsay addressed the starting stages of her divide with Danielle.
“I look forward to figuring that out along with the viewers, because I spent my entire summer just very confused,” she said. “I would never have guessed that this is where our friendship would’ve ended up.”
The star seemingly suggested her romance with Carl was a factor.
“When we got engaged and the way that [Danielle] reacted — it was kind of, like, the straw that broke the camel’s back,” shared Lindsay. “Because all summer I’m listening and hearing all these hurtful things that she’s saying about us … It seemed like she was very supportive of us walking into the summer and then all of a sudden that didn’t happen, and her dialogue became the opposite of that.”
Despite the issues, Lindsay hasn’t given up hope for a possible reconciliation. “I don’t think anything is ever beyond repair in life. I don’t think any relationship unless it’s, like, extremely abusive is beyond repair. I do hope that we can understand each other, maybe, from watching the show,” she explained.
Lindsay believes it will “suck” watching the friendship decline on the show. “This is going to be really difficult. Watching those scenes are probably going to be the most difficult for me and I’m dreading them,” expressed Lindsay. “Because it was hard to live and now it’s really hard to relive too. But I am hoping that each of us can hear each other through the television and see the other person’s perspective. Because we certainly weren’t doing that this summer.”
In an interview with E! News, Lindsay and her fiancé gave an update on wedding plans.
“We are super close to locking everything in, either this week or next week,” she said. “We are looking at this year in the fall and it being a big, big wedding. It’s taken this long for us to come together—he’s 38, I’m 36—I don’t think there is anybody in our lives that would let us get away with a small wedding, including Bravo.”
She revealed that planning their wedding has “been a big challenge,” and Carl believes this is due to the lingering effects of the pandemic on the industry. Lindsay also addressed whether the nuptials will be filmed.
“If we were just getting married with all of our guests and friends that would be one thing,” said the 36-year-old, “but when you’re considering the idea of filming it, there’s another level of criteria that you have to get checked off.”
“It would be crazy to me—from season one till now—to all of a sudden not see our wedding,” added Carl. “We’ve been such big parts of the show. You’ve seen our journeys and now we’re together and you’re going to see the engagement this season and then for them not to film?”
Lindsay continued, “Imagine if we were like, ‘Alright, that’s all you get from Carl and Lindsay.'”
Regarding which castmates will get invited, Carl expressed, “We’re still working out the guest list … We have kind of an idea of numbers, but I don’t know. We still have some time.”
Season seven of Summer House premiered on February 13 at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
