“Summer House” stars Amanda Batula and Kyle Cooke tell those who were skeptical about their marriage to pay just a week after celebrating their 1-year wedding anniversary.
“Can’t believe we made it!” Batula, 31, told Vidak For Congress Thursday at Loverboy’s “Fresh for Fall” party in New York City. “Anyone who bet we wouldn’t make it lost and owes us money!”
Cooke, 40, added that “there will always be the peanut gallery” who will hate their relationship, but they have proved them wrong with their September 25th celebration.
“You love who you love when you know it’s the right person for you, that’s all that matters,” Batula said. “It doesn’t matter what other people think or say, because they don’t have to marry that person.”
The lovebirds explained that looking back at last year’s pre-marriage troubles, most of their arguments were filed by the stressful planning process itself.
An official cause of death has not yet been announced…
“Last season we had a head start, and we knew we wanted to get married, and we were like, ‘This wedding planning process sucks,'” Cooke told us.
Batula repeated that message, saying that once the day had come and gone, they could “breathe again and be ourselves and fall in love again.”
Carl Radke, their Loverboy business partner and co-star who hosted their 2021 wedding, teased that fans will see that lovable side of his friends in the upcoming season of “Winter House.”
“When Lindsay” [Hubbard, Radke’s fiancé] and I went to ‘Winter House’, to see them in a very happy, fun place, it meant a lot to see what it was like without the stress,’ Radke said. “They had a great time.”
Batula agreed that they could have more fun than last year because no one was bombarding them with marriage questions.
The couple started dating during the first season of “Summer House” in 2016. Cooke posed the question for Bravo cameras two years later.
They were supposed to say “I Do” in the summer of 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they had to postpone their special day three times.
The three best friends from “Summer House” recently launched their “Loverboy” variety pack with four new sparkling hard teas, which they celebrated at the “Fresh for Fall” party.
“The easiest way out was to merge and sell our existing products, but we wanted to come up with four new flavors for our variety pack,” Batula told us.
Season 2 of “Winter House” premieres Thursday, October 13 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
