'Summer House': Paige DeSorbo on Where Things Go With Carl Radke After Their Pantry Makeouts (Exclusive)
Nothing says summer fling like a makeout session… in a pantry.
"I think that I was just always in the pantry because, like, that's where we kept waters, that's where all the snacks were," Summer House star Paige DeSorbo teases. "So, I feel like Carl [Radke] knew to find me there. And I just feel comfortable if there's four boxes of dried pasta if I'm making out with someone."
The 26-year-old fashion writer found herself locking lips with the 33-year-old salesman behind their summer share’s pantry doors a few times so far on season three, and viewers will get to see things heat up even more in the next episode. Those viewers include her parents, whom Paige has described as “old-school Italian” on the show.
'I mean, they understand that I'm 26 years old and I'm probably at some point in my life going to kiss a boy," Paige notes. "Do they want to see it? Mmm... I don't think so. But I mean, they're understanding, they get it. You know, one day I will probably get married and have a baby and I think they know how that happens."
Before marriage comes lots of dating, which can apparently be tough for the guys going after Paige.
"I'm a really tough cookie when it comes to dating, I have a lot of rules, I have a lot of stuff," she admits. "So, I tried to teach Carl how to date me, but you'll definitely see -- I think he gets a lot better at following my rules."
Paige’s rules are all about courting. She wants good morning texts, planned out dates and a lot of attention.
"You don’t have to be obsessed with me," she says. "But, like, that’s a bonus."
It seems safe to say that Carl didn’t exactly pass all of Paige’s tests.
"Today, we are not an item," Paige confesses. "Today I am very single."
Still, Paige says she and Carl are "the best of friends" and "talk all the time." They just weren’t a match when it came to romance, and Summer House fans will get to see why in the coming weeks. It all comes to a head when co-star Kyle Cooke accuses Paige of “leading on Carl.”
"I definitely hold my own with that, because I feel like I did the exact opposite with Carl," she says. "I told him, you know, how I felt about him and I said, if you want to continue this, these are the steps you have to take, and this is how it's gonna go down. And if you want to do that, then cool, we'll see what happens, but, you know, men don't ever listen."
Also still to come this season is housemate Jordan Verroi’s big "secret" reveal, first teased in the season three trailer.
"Jordan definitely felt the most comfortable with Hannah [Berner] and I, but then toward the end of the summer he gets comfortable with everyone," Paige explains. "We end up at a dinner with all the girls and, you know, Carl and Kyle are doing something else, and then Jordan is sitting at dinner with us and just kind of tells us why he's been so quiet the whole summer, why he's acted in certain ways. And it’s nothing crazy crazy, but he felt comfortable enough with us to tell us and, you know, we love regardless of anything."
