The last time we saw Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula on TV, they were on Winter House navigating a pregnancy scare and talking about their future. Apparently, something shifted between Winter House Season 3 and Summer House Season 8. The premiere episode showed the couple in a rough spot.

In a recent interview with People, Kyle opened up about the friction in his relationship with Amanda. Apparently, working together, living together, and partying together on reality TV has added some undue stress to their marriage. Kyle explained that they weren’t necessarily on the verge of divorce, but things weren’t in the best place either.

Troubled waters for Kyle and Amanda

“I’m not going to lie about it, when we went in a summer, we weren’t in a bad place, but we definitely weren’t really seeing eye to eye on a number of things, like the balance between work and our personal lives,” Kyle explained.

During the Summer House Season 8 premiere, Amanda shared a similar sentiment. She told the ladies in the house that her patience with Kyle was wearing thin. In a confessional, she revealed how the Winter House pregnancy scare was a turning point for her and Kyle.

“Over the winter, I ended up taking a pregnancy test. And I feel like ever since, we haven’t been in a really good place. Taking that test really made us start to think about like what’s next for us. And we’re not ready,” Amanda revealed.

Although Kyle said he and Amanda weren’t seeing eye to eye, it does seem like they’re on the same page about the fact that the pregnancy scare was super stressful. He said they’re getting questions left and right about “what’s next.” It’s not fun.

“All these pressing questions that it’s not just producers and the audience asking, it’s our friends, it’s our family,” Kyle shared.

A screwed-up work/life balance

In addition to the pregnancy scare, Kyle also explained how he and Amanda have struggled with their work/life balance. On the show, Amanda told him that he spends too much time in his office. Plus, we all know she’s busy pretending to be a fashion influencer. It’s a lot of work.

“We don’t make it easy on ourselves,” Kyle admitted. “We’ve been filming two TV shows for three years. We work together and running a company, particularly in alcohol where it’s insanely challenging, and that weighs us down. It definitely impacts our relationship.”

Although work and pregnancy scares have added pressure on their relationship, one thing they both agree on is that Summer House gives them much-needed relief. Amanda suggested that Season 8 will show them “getting their groove back.” Meanwhile, Kyle surprisingly shared how filming is kind of like a therapeutic experience.

“I always think filming’s a little therapeutic for couples that are on the same show,” he explained. “I know that sounds crazy, but you’re forced to talk about things that you conveniently avoid and I think of Summer House as my therapy.”

We’ll see where things go with Kyle and Amanda as Summer House continues. Will they get their groove back, or is this the beginning of the end? Only time will tell.

Season 8 of Summer House airs on Bravo Thursdays at 9/8c.
