Before his separation from Brittany, Tyler was caught up in drama involving another Selling the O.C. co-star. During an Aug. 23 appearance on the Reality Life with Kate Casey podcast, the former pro surfer claimed that his fellow realtor Kayla Cardona tried to kiss him on two separate occasions, but added that the incidents “didn’t happen while we were filming.”
Tyler noted that he eventually “set some hard lines and some boundaries” between him and Kayla, who later apologized to him for disrespecting his marriage.
As for the rest of his female coworkers, Tyler insisted there was nothing romantic going on, despite appearing cozying with them in front of the cameras, particularly the scene where fans saw Alex sitting on his lap.
“The hard part with that is, like Alex, Polly, me, everybody, we’re all really tight friends,” he explained. “There’s a respect; no lines will ever be crossed. Most of us are married or dating somebody, so there is kind of a set boundary there.”
