The effects of Scandal rippled through the Bravoverse.
“I think this Scandoval has definitely become a drama on everyone’s shows, like everything looks like it needs to be higher, bigger and crazier,” Summer houseAmanda Batula told PEOPLE at BravoCon in Las Vegas on Friday. “People want every break to be chaotic and explosive. Sometimes things just don’t work out. It’s that simple.”
Batula’s co-stars Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard broke off their engagement at the end of the summer, and the film will air on Summer house season 8

But unlike Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix’s breakup, which took place while Vanderpump Rules season 10 aired and recorded, Summer house fans won’t see what happened between Radka, 38, and Hubbard, 36, for months.
“You’ve only seen about a third of it Vanderpump season when he fell,” Batula’s husband Kyle Cooke told PEOPLE. “That’s how it was on the air, and in the meantime, not all episodes were locked, so they could, the producers could somehow go back and look for those little Easter eggs. This is a slightly different situation. I mean, you won’t see the frame Summer house season 8 until February.”

Meanwhile, Radke (38) and Hubbard (37) managed privately.
“This is not happening in real time like Scandoval,” continued Cooke, 41. “They’re both kind of hurt and they’re both trying to figure out a new normal.”

Radke told PEOPLE at BravoCon that viewers will “pick up and see things from the beginning” that were problematic in his relationship with Hubbard when the new season airs.
“We had a very difficult summer and I think people will see that,” Radke said. “But it just shows the seriousness of the situation when I really felt deep down that I needed to talk to her about where we were in our relationship and moving forward with the wedding.”
Radke also denied rumors that he called production to film the break ahead of their November wedding.

“I didn’t call production to set her up,” he said. “I don’t decide what will be filmed about Summer house. I really don’t. I only respond to what is asked.”
Meanwhile, Hubbard claimed that Us Weekly that Radke did exactly that.
“It would have been one thing if this conversation had happened over the summer during the normal filming schedule,” the publicist said. “But for [Carl] to call the producers and then set up the cameras and manipulate me into sitting down [so he could break up with me] after we’ve already finished it’s terrible. The whole world found out within 30 minutes of me.”

Batula and Cooke told PEOPLE they tried to stand by Hubbard and Radke without taking sides.
“My goal is really to provide support in the best possible way,” said 32-year-old Batula. “We have a history with both of them, they are our friends. They’re going through a really tough time and to be there for as long as they need at that moment, without choosing sides or taking a stand, it’s just being there to support our friends.”
Cooke added: “It’s a difficult situation to navigate even for us, I can’t even imagine Carl and Lindsay, especially in this environment. We’re not trying to sit here and screw up the details. Trust me, there’s a lot of footage to come and right now they’re just trying to be supportive.”
