I don't know about everyone else, but I secretly love Below Deck. It's like Overboard, but behind the scenes from the servants' perspective.
On this week's episode Kat Held purportedly got drunk during charter after some unruly and wasted guests sexually harassed her. The guests also happened to be friends with Kat's boss Adrienne Gang.
Instead of defending Kat, Adrienne confronted her about her alleged drinking and the two got into a heated issue in front of co-worker Sam Orme. Kat ended up confessing to Captain Lee that she actually takes anti-anxiety medicine and maybe went a leeettle too far with popping them to handle the stressful guests. But Kat is furious that Adrienne put her in the position to discuss her mental health with her co-workers and boss!
Kat still maintains she wasn't drinking during charter. Ok… Anyway here's what she has to say about the situation.

"I did not know that my entire crew thought I had been drinking," Kat tells Bravo TV. She says her focus was to "mentally overcome" the inappropriate guests and she wasn't paying attention to the crew's reaction to her behavior.
"When Adrienne initially confronted me in my room for drinking, I wasn't too concerned at that time. I didn't realize how bad my behavior was, so I thought that she was overreacting," Kat confesses. "However, when she confronted me in the crew mess with Sam present, I realized that this was more serious than I had initially anticipated." Kat says she truly believed she would lose her job over the incident.
Kat was also offended that Adrienne made her personal business everyone's business. "I was embarrassed to be antagonized in front of Sam, because this was an issue that was between Adrienne and myself, so I was angry with Adrienne for bringing this up in front of Sam, therefore making the situation more uncomfortable for all of us."
The situation made Kat lose respect for Adrienne "at that time" and so she opted to just go straight to the captain rather than trusting Adrienne with personal information. Kat says Adrienne seemed to genuinely believe she had lied to her about being drunk.
And prompting Adrienne to believe that was Kat's behavior the following night when the crew hit the clubs and Kat got waaaasted! Kat, of course, blames "peer pressure." Um… are we 12?
"I was feeling insecure, and once again, I wanted to forget about the issues surrounding work," Kat explains, "so I took the irresponsible route and gave into my emotional side."
Kat warns this is just the tip of the iceberg where the drama is concerned as personalities emerge. "There's also a lot of conflict going on and a lot more questions are arising because of that," she warns. "It definitely gives more insight as to what's to come."
