Dibman claimed that Radke had not informed her of his romance with Hubbard. (The Bravolebrities previously gave dating a shot during summer 2016.)
The blond bombshell told us, “I’ll say I was surprised I didn’t get any texts saying, ‘Hey, so Lindsey and I are together.'”
“I don’t get a single message like, ‘Hey, I hope you’re okay,’ I think it says a lot about his feelings for me and how sincere they were at the end. But I will say it was a wonderful time when I was in it – even if the following months were pretty confusing for me.”
