Kyle Cooke Addresses Wife Amanda Batula’s Weight Loss
Kyle Cooke has opened up about his wife Amanda Batula's weight loss. The “Summer House” star revealed that it was a combination of medication changes that caused his wife's dramatic weight loss and menstrual problems.
In a March 2023 interview with Page Six's “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast, Cook, 40, said his wife's medical struggles “clearly a lot more than what viewers see on Bravo reality show.” . In the “Mountain Resort” episode “A Cup of Faithful Tea,” filmed in the summer of 2022, Batura, 31, revealed that she hasn't had a period since going off birth control in November 2021.
“I'm going to set the record straight,” Cook said in an interview. “Yes, going off birth control can make you lose weight. It can also cause your hormones to go out of control, like when you were a teenager.”
The Loverboy CEO revealed that after she got off the pill, Batura's hormones went wild and started to explode. “She went on … a by-product that just happened to be a drug for clearer skin,” he said. “One of the side effects was that it also caused her to lose some weight. I don't think it's a common side effect, but it was like a double weight loss that she couldn't control.”

In the podcast interview, Cook responded to comments directed at his wife.
“She's been hearing a lot of crap from trolls about her weight and people are like, ‘Well, you missed your period because you lost a lot of weight,'” he said, adding that it's been “difficult ’, as his wife was simultaneously dealing with weight loss and adult acne as well as fertility issues.
