Selling The OC star Tyler Stanaland found himself at the center of the drama on the premiere season of his new Netflix show. During a Wednesday, September 7, appearance on the "Behind The Velvet Rope" podcast, the real estate broker revealed how wife Brittany Snow really felt about costar Kayla Cardona's drunken attempt to kiss him during a wild night out.
"I assumed that [the kiss] would be part of the storyline, but I didn't anticipate it being as much of the storyline as it became and that was kind of another reason why I continued to try and squash it throughout filming," Stanaland told host David Yontef. "I don't want this thing to grow legs when it was something that could have been handled very quickly. But something that makes [his & Snow's] relationship great is trust on both sides."
"We have to have that in order to make this thing work," he continued of his and the movie star's dynamic. "Especially in the public eye. It was a couple of conversations and something that we just had to prepare for."
Despite the Laguna Beach native being in the hot seat in the new reality series, he and the Hairspray actress, who have been married since 2020, will always respect each other's decisions and career choices even if it means putting themselves out there on television.
"I think it was something that when we first got together, we both said whatever best for our careers we will always support," he explained.
"That comes with on it her end, lots of long distance and online, and now the show," Stanaland noted. "And it was a good opportunity so it was something that we both just decided was the best thing."
As far as his and Cardona's platonic relationship? The fifth-generation realtor said the two are leaving the awkward situation in the past.
"I have no problem squashing with Kayla one-on-one and saying like, 'Hey, you know, this thing can't happen' ... putting up those boundaries," he said. "But when it's in a group setting and I know there's millions of people watching now, then I just want to minimize it, get away from it and have it not be a thing. I think you can kind of see that where I'm not saying much, I'm just trying to move past it."
