Lucas Gulbranson dropped a bombshell on the Summer House cast, as well as reunion host Andy Cohen, when he said the producers told him to ask Hannah Berner to visit him in Minnesota.
Not only did Gulbranson’s revelation shock the cast, but it brought Berner to tears and she stormed off the stage. The conversation turned to Berner’s anger at Gulbranson when he didn’t return her affections last summer. She recounted that Gulbranson asked her to go to Minnesota to meet his parents. “I was upset that this person in my life had confused me,” Berner said during the reunion. Gulbranson can be seen shaking his head as he delivers the blow.

“I should have said no,” Gulbranson added. Paige DeSorbo exclaimed, “What?” And Cohen said, “That’s not true.” Carl Radke can be heard in the background adding: “That’s not true.”
