A lot of people are talking about Amanda slut-shaming Lindsay at the vineyard for flirting and hooking up with people, all while trying to cover up for "something else." (Presumably LH's miscarriage.) Lindsay says she always dives into the deep end no matter what and has always done that, so she wasn't "covering up" for anything else. It's clear Lindsay isn't putting the pieces together that Amanda is maybe referring to a very recent (and traumatic) experience Lindsay has opened up about to the cast. She's also very defensive because of Paige and Ciara, and not really listening to Amanda. (I also think Amanda means overcompensating, and just used the wrong word... they're all DRUNK keep in mind.)
Lindsay then gets into it with Paige and Ciara, who are definitely coming from a much more attacking-POV than Amanda was (Amanda at this point has left the table crying because she wasn't being understood and emotions were escalating). This just amps up LH.
There has been a lot of conversation about how Amanda shouldn't have brought up Lindsay's miscarriage at all while the two were talking privately. I think she was trying to get Lindsay to realize she was talking about Real Things and not Surface/Show Things. For that, I think what Amanda said was OK! Lindsay has opened up to her about it, Amanda was referencing it. (And as someone not in Lindsay's situation, I can't help but wonder the same thing Amanda was wondering!)
To me, it's clear, Amanda is coming from a good place. (A drunk, but good place.) Paige, no. Paige was definitely being a hater, esp with that therapist line — and I think that helps highlight how Amanda meant everything with the best intentions.
Amanda's intention was to ask her friend if she was OK. Should she have originally done it more privately, probably. Especially with the messiness of Lindsay/Paige/Ciara/Danielle dynamics. But do I think she was WRONG? No. I really don't think she did anything wrong.
What do you think?
I'm not ready to say goodbye, despite the reunion looking amazing, I just feel this has been the best season of Summer House of all time! But tonight is one of our final Live Chats for this season! We get Kyle and Amanda finally saying I do, Carl and Lindsay get together, and we get more... Austen. *sigh* But I can't wait! ☀️

One thing that I found particularly upsetting at the Summer House reunion this season was Paige and Ciara's use of language when talking about Lindsay. For example, when Ciara was talking about whether or not Austen and Lindsay had sex, she said, "the hurt is still the same whether he entered you or not." Paige, on the other hand, said "I don't care who you let inside you," when talking with Lindsay.
It's easy to look at these two phrases and align it with slut-shaming (which they were likely trying to do), but it also dehumanizes Lindsay. It's language used more for objects than people, and is incredibly offensive, regardless of how hurt you may or may not be about her actions.
It's clear both of them came into the reunion with an agenda, but trying to reduce Lindsay to a thing vs. a person does not win you favors.
I just saw watch what happens live and Andy asked Paige about Craig allegedly hooking up with Naomie in Vegas. She brushed it off and said that she was fine with it because Craig didn’t find out what she was doing in New York.
However, during this whole relationship it just seems that Paige has been going along with whatever Craig says. It’s like she wants to be the cool girl described in gone girl where she doesn’t trip about things that she wants to trip about and that she just has a very lax attitude about some questionable things that Craig did.
Because as we saw on summer house she was very upset about the Kristin Cavalleri thing and he made her feel that she was wrong to be upset even though he turned around and did the same thing with Andrea. I just hope that Paige does not lose her self in this relationship because she has so much potential.
I get not being mad because they weren’t officially together but it’s just ironic and the opposite of what we saw on summer house. Plus Naomie and Craig dated for years so I would be more upset about them hooking up than anyone else.
I've been thinking about this since Alex joined the house — he's such a dud. But is he better than Jordan? Discuss.
I'm sorry, but the unseen footage from the SH reunion pt. 2 was better than most of the reunion eps, combined. (Not that I didn't love every second of the reunion, but there's only so many fake apologies this cast is going to want to make.)
I am begging and PLEADING that the Bravo gods give us more unseen footage... I mean from Monday's ep alone we got:
- sexy car rides
- nipple lickin'
- emotional heart to hearts
- so much fun!
When you tune in tonight to watch Summer House at 9:00 p.m ET, come here and chat with me, Samantha Bush, a writer for The Dipp and the brains behind me, @Bravohistorian!
I need everyone's thoughts and feelings about wtf is going on with our crew. What will happen with Paige and Craig, when do Lindsay and Carl decide to be together!? I NEED TO KNOW.

Currently watching the reunion and am honestly appalled by the comment Paige made about Lindsey having a miscarriage going against her choices made over the summer. Given the reaction to Kyle saying this earlier, I'm surprised this didn't generate more heat towards her. Thoughts on this?
WOW. We finally got a glimpse into the reunion, and I cannot WAIT. It looks so good, so much drama, and none of it honestly seems resolved which is perfect for season 7. But here are my takeaways:
-WHERE WAS THIS ALEX THE WHOLE TIME
-Paige not even being able to look at Lindsay..
-No one liking Carl and Lindsay's IG posts!!
-Danielle saying she has a hatred for Ciara!
-Luke has to go next year, he adds nothing.
-Good for Mya for sticking by hating Austen and standing by her truth.
-THE SHOCKING revelation that Ciara has hooked up with Austen since this all went down... what is the hold this man has on these women!
-Andy seemed to be loving it all and the drama
-I'm not convinced Andy loves that Kyle and Amanda got married...
What do you guys think!
From everything we've seen, I'm truly baffled. This man looks like a gaslighting fool on Summer House and Andrea looks like the kind, Italian cookie you want to bring home. I know that we love a project and a bad boy (LOL do you think Craig has ever been called that before?) but I'm truly just so confused as to how Craig and Paige actually end up together.
