Summer House Season 8 has already highlighted some of the issues that ultimately ended Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard's engagement, but it was also a difficult summer for spouses Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula.

How to Watch

As the couple was gearing up to celebrate their second wedding anniversary, they were struggling to get on the same page about their next steps. While Amanda wanted to move to New Jersey to be closer to her parents' house and gear up to have kids, Kyle wanted to remain in New York City.

Amid their struggles, Kyle suggested that the two go to couples therapy together, but Amanda wasn't interested.

On the April 4 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Amanda opened up about why she was so frustrated with Kyle last summer, and she shared an update on whether the spouses ever ended up going to couples therapy.

On WWHL, a fan wrote in and asked Amanda why she was "so harsh with Kyle this season." She acknowledged that she wasn't easy on her husband, but it was because the couple was going through a rough patch in their relationship.

"You know what, I think with relationships and marriages, you just kind of go through the motions, and I was having a really hard time with Kyle," Amanda explained. "I was really annoyed with him going into that summer, and it shows. He was just — he would breathe and it bothered me."

Amanda also justified why she got upset at Kyle for going out until 4 a.m. with Carl following his suit fitting with his groomsmen and flower boys.

"Kyle downplays everything that doesn't work in his favor," she said on WWHL about how he does still continue to go out late, despite him saying that it's rare for him to go out during the week. 

"Also, I live with Kyle. People love him, he's great to watch, but I live with him," she concluded. "You guys have to remember that."

Are Amanda Batula and Kyle Cooke in Couples Therapy Today?

After declining Kyle's offer to go to couples therapy to work out their issues on Summer House Season 8, Amanda explained why she was hesitant about seeing a professional.

"I don't have anything against it. We've been before together, we have filmed it," Amanda said on WWHL, about how she would have been more open to seeing a therapist off-camera. "I just felt like if we were really going to go, we should have done it the right way."

"You seem to have something against it," Kyle joked from the WWHL audience. 

"In that moment," Amanda responded, before sharing that the two haven't gone again. "We've gone. We're not currently going."

"One and done," Kyle added before laughing.
