Netflix released Selling the OC, a spin-off to the streaming platform's popular real estate show Selling Sunset, on August 24. It featured a group of realtors working for The Oppenheim Group’s Orange County branch.

One of the real estate agents was Tyler Stanaland, who recently made headlines after revealing that his co-star/colleague Kayla Cardona tried to kiss him. He clarified that she was drunk and the incident didn’t happen while filming the show.

For those unaware, Tyler is the husband of Pitch Perfect actress Brittany Snow, who is also popularly known for her work in films like 90 Minutes and Hairspray.

Tyler recalls the moment Kayla tried to kiss him

Tyler Stanaland opened up about the kissing incident with Kayla Cardona on the Reality Life with Kate Casey podcast, which was released on August 24. He explained that nothing happened between them because he didn’t allow Kayla to kiss him.

Tyler recalled:

"One night, Kayla did try and kiss me. And then it happened another night as well. And so on the show, out of respect for her, I am just kind of trying to minimize it and brush past it so that there isn't drama. We can all focus on what we should be doing.”

He continued:

“But that was something where I had to kind of set some hard lines and some boundaries and reconsider the social environment a bit. Nothing happened. It was just … something that, you know, you don't do to somebody who is married.”

While Tyler admitted to moving on from the incident, Selling the OC fans have a lot to say about the drama. One of the episodes showed Polly and Alex being furious at Kayla for trying to cross the line. Viewers felt that the two women were trying to make the incident about them.

Take a look at their fans' reactions:
