Kyle Cooke teased that best friends-turned-enemies Lindsay Hubbard and Danielle Olivera may be friends again after the intense “Summer House” Season 7 reunion.
“Andy [Cohen] has a way with words, and he really helped facilitate a productive conversation between Lindsay and Danielle,” Cooke told Page Six exclusively at his company Loverboy’s Limoncello Spritz launch dinner in New York City on Thursday.
Cooke added that everyone on the cast felt “relieved” afterward because they went into the reunion taping in April having “no idea” whether it would help or hurt Hubbard and Olivera’s friendship.
“I know I left feeling hopeful,” he shared.
Hubbard, 36, and Olivera, 34, were close friends for years, but their relationship took a turn when the fashion app founder expressed concerns about the speed of the publicist’s romance with now-fiancé Carl Radke.
While Hubbard and Olivera left the reunion on better terms, both Cooke, 40, and his wife, Amanda Batula, kept tight-lipped on the current status of their co-stars’ friendship.
Cooke also addressed fans tweeting their surprise at how “intense” and “nasty” the reunion got considering the rest of the season was more on the “tame” side.
“I think at the reunion, there was a lot of pent-up stuff, even from the Season 6 reunion, some stuff that should’ve been discussed that wasn’t, so some of that bled into this season,” he explained to us.
Cooke did not specify which cast members rehashed past feuds, but after the first part of the reunion, fans were wondering why Hubbard and Paige DeSorbo were arguing considering they were seemingly on good terms throughout the season.
DeSorbo, 30, hasn’t addressed the chatter, but Hubbard seemed to lean in to the feud and throw some shade at her castmate on social media.
“I guess we speak in couches & beds these days…” she captioned an Instagram Story of herself and some of her other co-stars working, not-so-subtly shading DeSorbo, who admittedly prefers a day in bed over socializing.

DeSorbo and Hubbard have since unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Amid all the drama, Cooke and Batula, 31, have been busy launching their 14th Loverboy flavor, Limoncello Spritz, after getting inspired on their trip to Italy last summer.
“I ordered limoncello spritz because it sounds fun, and I had my first sip, and I immediately was like, ‘Kyle, you have to try this. This is our next spritz flavor. We need to recreate this,’” she recalled.
Batula teased that in addition to their newest cocktail, they are working on a variety pack of their spritz drinks, concocting a possible margarita recipe and even experimenting with alcohol-free versions of their beverages.
The final part of the “Summer House” reunion airs Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
