Kyle Cooke Expresses Displeasure Over Craig Conover’s Investment in Competing Alcohol Company

Kyle Cooke expressed dissatisfaction with Craig Conover’s investment in Spritz Society, a competitor to Cooke’s alcohol company, Loverboy, during an episode of “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.” Cooke felt misled by Conover, especially after a dinner where Conover allegedly extracted information from him without disclosing his impending deal with Spritz Society, despite knowing about Loverboy’s similar product line.

Kyle Cooke expressed dissatisfaction with Craig Conover’s investment in a competing alcohol company, feeling misled and wronged by Conover’s actions and lack of transparency.

Kyle Cooke has some thoughts about Craig Conover’s latest career move. It’s a bit of a spicy topic since Craig decided to invest in a company that directly competes with Kyle’s alcohol brand, Loverboy.

On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, things got real. Initially, Kyle played it cool, claiming there was "no bad blood" between him and Craig. But, as the conversation heated up, his tone changed.

"I think this is being blown out of proportion," Kyle first told Andy Cohen. It seemed like he was trying to downplay the drama. But, the plot thickened when he mentioned how the press seemed to be stirring the pot.

Kyle launched Loverboy back in 2018. It was his baby, offering both alcoholic and non-alcoholic teas and cocktails. Then, Craig announced his investment in Spritz Society, sparking the controversy.

Oh, and there’s more drama. Kyle and Amanda Batula, his wife, had their fair share of ups and downs. Their journey to the altar wasn’t just about love; legal issues loomed over them, adding a layer of stress to their nuptials.

"Look, I wish him the best, but the way he handled it really rubbed me the wrong way," Kyle said. He tried to take the high road, but it was clear he felt betrayed by Craig’s actions and alleged dishonesty.

During the WWHL After Show, Andy Cohen poked the bear again. Kyle revealed that the founder of Spritz Society had dinner with him, milked him for information, and then didn’t mention his upcoming deal. Sneaky, right?

Kyle was baffled. Craig had tasted Loverboy’s range, including their spritz line launched way before Spritz Society came into the picture. "He knows we don’t just do teas," Kyle insisted, frustrated by Craig’s claims of ignorance.

He concluded with a pointed remark about business ethics. "Whenever someone says, ‘Kyle, it’s just business,’ that’s to justify something wack they did." Ouch.

Craig hasn’t publicly responded to Kyle’s comments. However, he did share his perspective with Page Six, acknowledging the hard work required in the alcohol business. He mentioned he would’ve loved to invest in Loverboy but wasn’t given the chance.

Amanda Batula, Kyle’s wife and part of the Loverboy team, also weighed in. She’s taking a step back from the brand for the sake of their marriage. "I think we needed a little bit of that separation for now," she admitted to Us Weekly. It seems like they’re trying to find a balance between their personal and professional lives.

So, there you have it. A tale of friendship, business, and a sprinkle of drama. Only time will tell how this saga unfolds.
