Carl Radke confirmed he’s dating his Bravo co-star Lindsay Hubbard earlier today on Wednesday, Jan. 12, and E! News got the exclusive scoop on how the other cast members feel about the longtime friends taking their relationship to the next level.
“We are so excited for them,” Amanda Batula said, sitting alongside her husband and fellow Summer House star Kyle Cooke. “We’ve obviously known for a while and, you know, they gave it a go way back when, and then they were best friends in the interim. And here they are trying it out again and the timing seems so much better.”
As Summer House fans surely recall, Carl and Lindsay briefly dated during season four—Amanda described the attempt as the two “exiting the friendzone and quickly going back in”—however, as Lindsay told PageSix on Wednesday, they “were both in such very different headspaces” at the time.
There’s one major difference between now and then, though: Carl has since given up drinking.
As Carl told Us Weekly, “Lindsay’s and I’s relationship has grown immensely in the last year because of my sobriety and where I’m at.”
Amanda and Kyle echoed this sentiment, with the latter explaining to E! News that their journey has only made their relationship stronger.
“They understand each other so, so well because they’ve both been there for one another when they’ve been going through their own individual hardships, challenges or, you know, whatever life has thrown at them,” Kyle said. “And so I mean, if there’s anybody that understands one another, it’s them, right? So I think that gives them a really great shot at having a great relationship.”
Kyle went on to reveal that the four of them recently traveled to Charleston, giving him and Amanda a front row seat to “that true couple zone,” as he put it.
Added Amanda, “It was cute! And it took a little bit of time to get used to them, like, calling each other ‘babe’ and and kissing because you feel it’s like your parents. You’re like, ‘Wow this isn’t right!'”
“But again, seeing them both so happy, I feel like I got to see a side of them in a relationship that I’ve never really seen before,” Amanda continued. “Just like their energy that they were giving off. So I’m really excited to see where they go.”
Perhaps Carl and Lindsay will eventually follow in their friends’ footsteps by tying the knot? Amanda sure hopes so.
“I can’t wait to go to their wedding!” she said.
Catch Amanda, Kyle, Carl and Lindsay on Summer House when season six premieres on Monday, Jan. 17 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

Browns DT Malik McDowell arrested fully naked in Florida.
Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Malik McDowell is accused of walking around naked in front of a South Florida learning center. When a Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrived, he allegedly attacked him.
The 25-year-old football player was then tased. McDowell is charged with aggravated battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and exposure of sex organs in public.
The graphic video obtained by TMZ Sports, shows the arrest and altercation.
According to the New York Post, his defense attorney believes his client could have been slipped something.
“Apparently somebody may have slipped him something or given him something he was unaware of, which explains some of his bizarre behavior,” said McDowell’s defense attorney.
In a statement, the Browns said they’re “aware of the very concerning incident,” and are gathering more information and will have no further comment at this time.
This season, McDowell appeared in 15 games, recording three sacks and 19 solo tackles. He will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
McDowell had been arrested three other times including for resisting arrest and assault.
Some online accounts suggest his actions could be the result of a mental heath issue.
Police in Washington, D.C. have released a video in hopes that the public may have some information in the brazen daylight carjacking of a city council candidate at a gas station this past weekend.
D.C. politician and Council at Large candidate Nate Fleming can be seen in the video walking to his vehicle when a SUV pulls up beside him, with a gunman immediately jumping out of the passenger side, who pointed the gun at him. The politician gives up his car keys and the assailants make their getaway in the SUV and Fleming’s BMW.
Fleming took to Twitter after the incident, tweeting, “To be threatened at gunpoint is shocking,” he wrote, “but I am not surprised that I was attacked given the increase in carjackings and the crisis facing young people in this city.”
After establishing its ambitions for the new digital frontier, adidas Originals is diving deeper into the metaverse to introduce a new chapter of its ongoing partnership with luxury collaborator, Prada.
The two iconic brands are joining forces to disrupt the metaverse through a charitable lens that puts creators at the forefront. Prada’s foray into the metaverse will take the form of a global, user-generated NFT art project, utilizing blockchain Polygon Web3. This first-of-its-kind interactive platform will allow the metaverse community to contribute to an NFT made up of 3,000 individual tiles that will then be developed into one final art piece by digital artist & educator Zach Lieberman.
The final adidas x Prada NFT piece will be auctioned off with primary sale profits going to climate-focused organizations Slow Factory and UNESCO Sea Beyond, and a percentage of sales will be split between the creators of the tile artwork – including any secondary sales of Lieberman’s final work each time it is sold. Acknowledging the fundamental role of creators, all 3,000 works featured in the final NFT project will be minted as unique NFTs that each contributor will own and can sell on the secondary market.
Each tile and the final piece will be inspired by the recently releasedPrada Re-Nylon collection – a sustainable, reimagined luxury sportswear collection, released in collaboration with adidas, that is composed of Prada’s signature, recyclable Re-Nylon fabric.
