Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula, a longtime Summer House pair, have a lot of drama in season 6 leading up to their wedding, and many fans are questioning if they’re still together.
Yes, the Bravo pair is still going strong today, and they even made it down the aisle. In September 2021, the couple married in the backyard of Amanda’s parents’ home in Hillsborough, New Jersey. However, as fans have witnessed, getting there was no simple task.
Kyle, 39, and Amanda, 30, got into a massive confrontation during the season 6 opener, which aired on January 17, about the Loverboy founder’s partying lifestyle.
Amanda was in tears because she couldn’t reach Kyle while he was out drinking, and she was afraid he would cheat again. She scattered his belongings around the room and placed his bag outside their door before retiring to bed. Their fight continued the next morning, and it became much more acrimonious.
Kyle said his fiancée was his “first line of fire” when asked why he blamed Amanda for his behaviour on Watch What Happens Live after the premiere, while acknowledging he was wrong.
“I made a mistake.” I decided to remain out. I shouldn’t have gone out in the first place. He told host Andy Cohen, “I was delighted, it was night one!” after a poll revealed that 87 percent of viewers said they would not marry Kyle after seeing the vicious debate.
Fans of Summer House were also surprised when Amanda disclosed to co-stars Ciara Miller and Paige DeSorbo that Kyle and her parents had signed a legally binding contract regarding their forthcoming marriage. He would repay the Batulas all of the money if they didn’t make it down the aisle because of his behaviour, according to the documentation.
Kyle admitted that he “didn’t come up with the contract idea,” but that he “agreed to it.”
The Winter House alum explained, “She wanted to know I had skin in the game,” noting that the “financial repercussions” offered his bride peace of mind. “I was all in for anything Amanda needed.”
Amanda, for one, said that she doesn’t always enjoy watching their confrontations on television.
“Obviously, I’ve had a few outbursts over the years,” Amanda admitted to E! News. “I don’t like to watch it because I’m not proud of how I acted, how I handled the situation, or how mad I became, and I’m embarrassed by it.” “So it’s not something I like to sit and watch with a smile on my face and say, ‘You go lady!'” “Ohhhh, it’s a touch cringy,” I say.
