Lindsay Hubbard and Luke Gulbranson Praise Carl Radke as He Celebrates 2 Years of Sobriety

The Summer House cast member felt the love from several Bravolebrities as he marked a major achievement in his sobriety. 

By Shannon Raphael

Last year was pretty special for Carl Radke, as he became engaged to fellow Summer House cast member Lindsay Hubbard, but he’s starting 2023 with yet another major milestone moment. 

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

On Sunday, January 8, Carl officially celebrated two years of sobriety — and the achievement did not go unnoticed by his friends and loved ones.

His fiancée, who referred to herself as a “proud future wifey” in an Instagram Story, also marked the occasion on her main feed with a photo of the two on the beach. 

“Congrats on [two] years of sobriety to my babe!” Lindsay wrote in the caption of the January 8 post, along with a red heart emoji. “I am so beyond proud of you, your journey, your strength, and your dedication to becoming the best version of yourself. You inspire so many people! I love you!”

Bravolebrities including The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Whitney Rose and Below Deck Sailing Yacht’s Daisy Kelliher shared their well wishes for Carl by adding a “Congrats” message and heart emojis, respectively, in the comments of Lindsay’s post.

Summer House alum and Lindsay’s ex-boyfriend, Everett Weston, wrote, “Congrats Carlito,” while Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent (who celebrated four years of sobriety herself in October) added, “Yassssss! Happy f--king birthday [Carl Radke] so proud of you!”

Lala also shared a photo of Carl on her Instagram Story and sent along some more words of encouragement. “Happy (sobriety) birthday! So proud of you, brother,” she captioned the post, adding a prayer hands emoji. “One day at a time. We got this.”

Carl’s longtime pal Luke Gulbranson took to his own Instagram Stories to acknowledge the accomplishment. 

“Some people say they need to make changes in their lives, and others actually put it into motion,” Luke wrote over a photo of the two from Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula’s wedding. “Your discipline, love for those who love you, and yourself shine every day, brother,” Luke wrote. “Happy two years of sobriety!! Love you amigo!”

Daily Dish Summer House Carl Radke Sober Anniversary 01

As Summer House fans may remember, Carl initially decided to abstain from drinking on Season 5 of the show, but it proved to be difficult following the unexpected passing of his older brother, Curtis Radke, from addiction. 

When Carl arrived in the Hamptons to film Season 6 in the summer of 2021, however, the Loverboy sales VP had decided to stop drinking completely. He was nearly six months sober when the summer began. Though it was challenging at times to be “sober for the first time in the Hamptons,” he said he ended up having a “powerful summer” during the Season 6 reunion.  

Fast-forward to the beginning of 2023, and Carl is celebrating two full years of being, as Lindsay noted, the “best version” of himself.
