Danielle Olivera may have had her ups and downs with costar Lindsay Hubbard, but she's still always Team Lindsay.

The Summer House star, 35, is weighing in on the latest episode of the series in which her on-again friend Hubbard accuses her sober fiancé, Carl Radke, of being back on drugs, which as you can imagine, didn't go over so well and caused a huge argument in the house.

"So, it's weird because at that point I wasn't getting any information about what was going on. I mean, it was behind closed doors," Olivera tells Parade of the incident, which occurred off-camera en route to a bar in the Hamptons. "It was in a car ride, the club, it was loud. I was doing my own thing. I wasn't really in tune with what was going on with them because again, I was setting some boundaries. I was like, 'I'm not going to go back into a best friendship out the gate.' So I was really removed from it."

Now that she's watched it play out on the show, Olivera says, "I had no idea what was going on. And it makes it difficult because I'm obviously Team Lindsay, we know how this whole thing ends. But there are some moments where I'm just like, 'I wish you didn't do it like that. I wish you didn't say that because Carl really wasn't on anything.' He was just trying to have a good time with the guys."

Viewers know that about a month or two later, Radke ends up calling off the wedding. And although the former couple was arguing a lot in the house, it seems no one predicted the nuptials would ever be canceled.

"If I'm being honest, never," Olivera tells Parade. "For me. I know the new guys, they're like – especially Jesse [Soloman] – 'What's going on here? This doesn't seem right.' He's like, 'This doesn't pass the smell test.' It's funny because later on, he even sometimes used the words, 'It feels like this is too fast.' And I was like, 'Don't use those words because I got burned for that.' But I had no idea that it would never happen."

She adds, "And in seasons past, when Kyle [Cooke] and Amanda [Batula] were getting married, it was a rocky road to their nuptials as well. So we were questioning them too. This happens with couples in the house. I would never think that if this would've happened, the outcome. But couples in the house, it's like a pressure cooker. So fights are going to happen."

As for her own love life, Olivera recently told Parade that she's single and moving on from her fling with Southern Hospitality's Joe Bradley.
