Below Deck

Kate-Chastain-Hand-On-Cheek-Below-Deck

With her court date upon her today, Kate Chastain will face the charges brought about in early June of domestic battery of then-girlfriend, Rocio (Ro) Hernandez. Charges against Kate detailed in a Melbourne, Florida police report claimed Kate bit, held down, and choked Hernandez after the two women came home from a bar late at night on June 11. But the Below Deck star has maintained her innocence all along, even issuing a statement through her lawyer, Gary Frese, in August that said, “The version of the incident told to the police by Ms. Hernandez is completely fictitious.”

Now, video footage of Kate from the day of the charges reveals her telling police that she was actually the victim of domestic battery – not Hernandez.

Since we were royally shafted out of a Below Deck reunion this year, Bravo is throwing us a (very tiny) bone by way of a catch-up blog, highlighting what the crew has been up to since cameras stopped rolling and regrets they have from their days aboard Valor.

A few juicy details are revealed, but maddeningly, Kyle Dixon spills absolutely no beans about his shady shenanigans of late. Thus, we must continue to stalk him on social media for answers. Sigh. #TheTruthIsOutThere

Kate Chastain left the season on a low note with former friend and sometime-lover, Ben Robinson. Since then, though, she admits that she’s seen Ben from time to time – and that he’s had more than one lady friend by his side over the past months! What? Bemily is OVER? Say it ain’t so!

Below Deck First Impressions

Season four of Below Deck sailed into the sunset this week; thus we are left with Captain Lee Rosbach’s final searing blog in its wake. Though a fair amount of drama happened throughout filming, Lee reflects that his crew didn’t seem to learn a whole lot from it. But he sure did.

“From a captain’s point of view, I learned a lot,” writes Lee. “For instance, I found out that no matter how well you feel you know your crew and how they will behave in a given set of circumstances, you really don’t know them as well as you thought you did. People I thought were loyal weren’t and some who I thought weren’t turned out to surprise me. I’m not going to get into names or specifics here, but I really was not all that pleased with our overall performance this season. And for that I must bear responsibility.”

It’s time to bid a fond farewell to Below Deck, season four. Goodbye, Captain Lee Rosbach’s epic blogs! Adios, Kate Chastain’s Resting B*tch Face! See ya later, Kyle Dixon’s massively confusing backstory! Ciao, Bemily! Thanks for the forever scarring memories of late night snot snacking, Trevor Walker! Tragically, we won’t get to see the aftermath of this season’s drama play out on the couches, as there will be no reunion this year. To which I say: Pfffffffffft. Not okay, Andy Cohen! Why do you have to be so uncool to us, bro?

Last night, Kate continued laying into her crew, who seem to be using their last charter as a chance to slack off. After a pep talk from Kate, Emily Warburton Adam seems on board with ending the season strong. But Sierra Storm is not about to let this annoying stuff called “work” ruin her frightening permasmile. She chooses to passive-aggressively snark “sure” to Kate’s instructions. Maybe she just needs a hug? Emily obliges by giving her one.

Kate-Chastain-Book

This season of Below Deck has been so good. It is chock full of drama and I’m living for it. One person with no tolerance for bull shit who has been all kinds of annoyed this year is my girl Kate Chastain.

Kate is not afraid to speak her mind in any situation so it makes perfect sense that she has a book coming out soon. I can’t wait to see what she has to say about her experiences on the show – especially since she also mentioned that there won’t be a Below Deck reunion this season. This news really upsets me because I would love to know what the cast members have to say after watching the season, but I’m sure Kate will be serving up enough tea for me to feel satisfied and entertained.

Kyle-Dixon-Ashley-Girlfriend-Walking-Below-Deck

When Kyle Dixon first came on Below Deck, I found it difficult to understand him and I mean that in the most literal sense since his dialogue was often accompanied by subtitles for clarification, which made things feel even more awkward when he tried to woo his coworker Sierra Storm. Well, that didn’t go well and then Kyle revealed that he actually had a girlfriend named Ashley, who happens to be transgender. And for some insane reason Sierra thought it was a good idea to make derogatory comments about that in front of reality TV cameras.

Damn. That was stupid. Pretty much everyone forgot about Kyle trying to woo Sierra when he already had a boo at home because Sierra’s comments ended up taking center stage. Obviously, this didn’t sit well with Kyle. AT ALL.

As Captain Lee reflects on their last charter of the season on Below Deck, he has some words of advice and thoughts on this episode for each of his crew members.

He starts out this week’s blog, “We’re on our last charter, so you would think that we would have our sh– together, wouldn’t you? The guests are a group of lovely ladies that are just out to have a good time, relax, and enjoy themselves. It’s our job to be as energetic and upbeat as we were on day one of the season. After all, the guests don’t know that they are the last charter of the season…oh wait they do, Sierra politely informed them of that. But even so, they deserve our best effort and service. Unfortunately, that sentiment doesn’t seem to be shared by all of the crew. Some are too busy slacking off and thinking of what they are going to do when this charter is over or bitching about their superiors, who only want them to do their jobs well. Well I for one have heard enough of this whining to last me a long time. Guess what, cupcake, it’s not over till it’s over, and we’re not done yet.”

Last night’s Below Deck was all about frustration. Kate Chastain resurrects the Resting B*tch Face to combat her frustration over the shoddy work – and attitude – she’s perceiving from Sierra Storm and Emily Warburton-Adam. Meanwhile, Kelley Johnson does his best to quiet his ego as he adjusts to life with Nico Scholly’s new senior deckhand status. As opposed to Nico’s freshman deckhand behavior lately – which now includes blaming Kate for all of his self-inflicted problems aboard Valor! Lauren Burchnell is, of course, all too happy to blame Kate too. She’s #TeamNico, whether it makes sense or not. Sigh. I had such high hopes for Lauren early in the season. What happened to this girl in six short weeks?

We begin with Kate and Kelley bemoaning their separate fates. But Ben Robinson and Emily are celebrating theirs! After preserving Emily’s funeral bouquet for as long as humanly possible, Ben finally scored an adult sleepover ashore. From which he emerged giddier than ever. Kyle Dixon is also breathing a sigh of relief after his girlfriend Ashley took his sketchy Sierra news pretty well. Kyle better get it together for that patient girl because she is standing by his excuse-making arse even though he doesn’t deserve it. #TeamAshley
