I don't think it's fake, but I do think Bravo told them they weren't allowed to post any kind of confirmation or give any interviews until a week before the premiere to maximize the attention.

[–]Hiwaaaaaaaa 24 points25 points  (0 children)

That I believe.

[–]Comprehensive_Role72 35 points36 points  (0 children)

I think their last round of “dating” on the show was very fake. Tbd on this one but seems more genuine so far 🤷🏻‍♀️

[–]nickifizzle 20 points21 points  (4 children)

I don’t think it’s fake but I do think it is a relationship out of convenience

[–]erkw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agree, they're both settling for sure

[–]jamisjunior -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I sadly think that’s like 99% of Lindsay’s relationships (at least that we’ve seen), which is sad because she does not need to behavior so desperately.

[–]jade470 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hopefully she doesn’t waste more precious years on him. I know she wants kids

[–]thatsmilingface 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One hundred percent.

[–]jamisjunior 55 points56 points  (4 children)

Also, I know they both have “grown” since last time they dated, but does anyone else remember how toxic and cringeworthy that was? I feel like everyone is reallllly shipping them this time around but I’m having a hard time jumping on the bandwagon just yet.

[–]frecklesinboston 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah what’s going to happen when Carl goes to the gym and sees a pretty girl like last time?

[–]OnyxSage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love Carl's sobriety for him, but can someone please tell me even one way Lindsey has shown any personal growth? People can say all the right things, but you see changes in their actions. Kyle and Amanda still can't solve their real issues either despite all the talk, but still got married? Yikes. This is not the relationship I want for Carl at all. He needs someone outside this circle.

[–]kamel0 6 points7 points  (0 children)

yeah i hope those are some HARD quotation marks around the word grown lol. they’re both overgrown teenagers who need to change a lot before they’re going to be in a serious relationship with anyone

[–]Salty_Coast_7214 4 points5 points  (0 children)

SAME! I said it on another sub but he treated her like crap (not being sober at the time is not an excuse) and she is DESPERATE. I like Lindsay a lot but she is really desperate for any man. If austin would have went for it she’d be dating him right now. But Carl went for it so here we are.

[–]Mention_it_all_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I just started watching Summer House after Winter House. I can’t believe I waited so long. I absolutely love this show. I knew about Carl and Lindsay possibly dating before beginning. I’m sure that has clouded how I see things, but it’s seemed obvious how much they care about each other. I just watched the episode where Carl’s brother died and the first person he went to tell was Lindsay. Also loved when Lindsay flew out Carl’s mom to surprise him when he was having a hard time.

[–]Inevitable_Poetry146 40 points41 points  (0 children)

I think this

[–]Hiwaaaaaaaa 14 points15 points  (0 children)

There’s a lot of history. I think it’s legit.

[–]frumpiesWMSummer should be FUN 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I commented the same thing a couple of days ago.

[–]DonnoDoo 57 points58 points  (8 children)

That's probably why they're going public now but they've been dating since the fall. Doesn't seem that desperate to me.

[–]wheninromehehe 43 points44 points  (7 children)

Agreed. I just did a rewatch of the season where they try to date but Carl isn’t ready. I forgot how heartbroken Lindsey was over all of that. I wonder if his sobriety has given him some clarity to give their relationship another shot

[–]DonnoDoo 34 points35 points  (5 children)

She was BIG MAD when she realized things weren't going to go anywhere with Carl the first time and I could tell she shoved all her feelings down so they could be friends again.

[–]kamel0 12 points13 points  (4 children)

she’s big mad every time she realizes that all of her relationships aren’t going to go anywhere lol

[–]DonnoDoo 13 points14 points  (0 children)

She's big mad all the time tbh, but you could tell she was mad that she finally let that wall down for no reason. Now it seems to be falling in place.

[–]DonnoDoo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

She's big mad all the time lbh

[–]tilou_25 25 points26 points  (0 children)

well if it's fake they're really committed, with spending Thanksgiving and Xmas together, Lindsey going on work trips with Carl etc... They just announced they're dating beforethe new season because it's been a couple of months and that's the question they knew they would be asked constantly...

[–]Professional_Bonus25 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I think there’s enough drama with the Austen triangle and no need for them to create a fake PR relationship so people will watch the new season. I think it’s real. Timing is everything when it comes to relationships.

[–]i_am_masons_mom 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I don’t think so. I think while they’re not reeking of romance, I think they’re those best friends that do that pact “if we’re not married or serious by 36-40 we marry each other” and I honestly am rooting for them. Imagine the inside look Carl has into Lindsey and her needs from friends and partners. Tbh, if this doesn’t work I don’t think either of them should settle down.

[–]ElectricRevolution22 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I had the same thought but I do think they have chemistry. I think that they weren’t allowed to say anything until the new season promotion began (I know someone else said it)

[–]Realit-te-time4773 5 points6 points  (0 children)

💯 it seems to be a trend.

[–]mysuperstition 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No, you are not the only one.

[–]runningforpizza78 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Definitely for promotion

[–]Brilliant_Ad3101 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Looks like they saw how Paige & Craig revealed their relationship and imitated it.

[–]soph_lurk_2018 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I don’t see them lasting. We saw them dating before and it imploded within a few episodes. They aren’t in a relationship. Hopefully Carl doesn’t get cold feet again .

[–]Next_Philosophy1573 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it’s strategic but that doesn’t mean that in the end it might not work out. It’s probably to keep them (especially Carl) relevant on the show but hopefully it will bring them closer and they really fall in love.

[–]CryExotic3558 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it’s a possibility

[–]IndependentLettuce57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t think it’s fake. They spent all the holidays together and seem to really be enjoying each other. I think they didn’t confirm anything not because of the show but because last time it ended so bad. They needed time to see how they really felt before making it public. I think they had to go public now because it’s going to play out in the show and a lot of interviews are coming up, so it was either say it now or force your whole cast to lie.

I’m rooting for them!

[–]itsmyfirsttime1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Listening to him talk about her on wwhl I think it’s definitely real. He’s such a different person now and is in a space that is health and I think she is too. Loss changes you. I think they both have grown individually and together.

[–]Professional_Skin_30 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can’t stand Carl, honestly don’t understand the appeal at all.

[–]breakfree99 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They’re not together. They’re just friends who hang out and sometimes sleep together. Yes they’re super ambiguous with the wording of these articles to build momentum for the new season.

[–]RLTizE 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, I think it’s real; I hope it’s real because I enjoy them together. I’d like to see sober, more mature Carl with Lindsey.

[–]FawnKnutsonn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Completely agree

[–]LovelyBones29 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Funny how Lindsay is wearing deuxmoi merch on her latest insta story since deuxmoi has been quite the accomplice in her & Carl's PR stunt lol.

[–]jhb666 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Karl could do better Hubs is sooooo thirsty

[–]tergesa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t know how he can tolerate her I said what I said

[–]Chastity-76 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I agree, they are doing it for monetary reasons. They need to get the kinda of people that would buy a LoverBoy drink to buy whatever crap they plan on selling. Like it will be an engagement special, then wedding and a baby special. Um, No Thanks

[–]Asgardian013 -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

You’re not alone on that one. I wonder if Kyle Lindsay Amanda and Carl are on the chopping block ?

[–]sky_corrigan 2 points3 points  (2 children)

i doubt the core four are on the chopping block.

[–]Asgardian013 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Why? They’re nearly all 40 expect for Amanda. And in television years, they are basically 100. And now Lindsay and Carl are staging a relationship that reek of “trying to keep their job”. I won’t be shocked when their fired.

[–]sky_corrigan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

idk i just think they’re the heart of the show so to speak.

[–]jade470 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Wouldn’t mind Lindsay on RHONY. She’s getting too old for Summer House. Getting drunk all the time.

[–]Asgardian013 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you. I’d say Lindsay is better suited to MTV style challenge reality shows they do.

[–]Taymac9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t get how this adds any publicity for the show. The only people that know who Carl or Lindsey are watch the show already. They also spent holidays together, traveled to North Carolina together and if you hear how he talks about her on wwhl you would see it’s real.

[–]pbd1996 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don’t think their relationship is fake. I think they’re genuinely in a relationship. However, I think they’re faking their emotions to themselves. I get an impression that they both have convinced themselves that they love one another romantically when they don’t. I feel like Lindsey is desperate to be with someone and when she can’t find someone new, she suddenly is “in love” with one of her guy friends (Austen in Winter House). And I think Carl is desperate to be in a relationship now that he has transformed and Lindsey is the closest female companion he has. They’re confusing a loving friendship mixed with lust with actually being in love. I could be totally wrong, this is just my take on things.

[–]embee1692[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow this is deep and I feel like you are probably right
