Remember when Below Deck was just a newborn babe of a Bravo show, and chief stew Adrienne Gang was the center of the entire crew’s disdain? Well, Adrienne sure does! And she is a teensy bit bitter about how easy the chief stews since season one have had it. At least, that’s the way she sees it!
To be fair, Adrienne was consistently tortured by her second stew, Samantha Orme, who perma-smirked her way through her entire stint aboard Honor, undermining Adrienne’s management efforts at every turn. Adrienne claims, “I think the chief stews since me have had it a lot easier than I did with the girls that they had. The girls that they had actually wanted to do work.”
Returning players for season three include: Juliet Angus, Caroline Fleming, Marissa Hermer, Julie Montagu and Caroline Stanbury. Former “friend” of the show – and soon to be ex-sister in law of Caroline Stanbury – Sophie Stanbury will also join the cast full time. Newbie Adela King, long time friend of Caroline S, will also join the cast, albeit in a “friend” capacity.
Before unraveling that mess, Melissa focuses on Juicy Joe’s departure for “camp.” She writes, “I think we can all agree that last night’s episode was so raw and emotional. No matter how you look at the situation, it is heartbreaking to see a family go through something like this. Teresa [Giudice]and her girls are incredibly strong. I’m so happy that we were able to be there for them and have the kids spend time together with Joe Giudice before he went away.”
It’s no secret that Captain Lee Rosbach was all over the crew of Valor on Below Deck this week, and more specifically, all over newly appointed bosun Kelley Johnson. Lee claims the entire crew is indeed struggling, and took to his blog to break down this week’s performance and drama!
“Wow, this week is really something else. I have no frigging idea where to start. We had a lot of stuff going on, and plus we had a charter break out in the middle of it all,” admits Captain Lee. Although the charter guests were fun, he observes, “The crew, however, is struggling just a bit, and there are a variety of reasons.”
TLC’s juggernaut of a reality TV series, 90 Day Fiance, is the beautiful gift that keeps on giving. (If by beautiful gift, we mean horrific, bloody, no-survivors trainwreck.) And one of the ill-fated couples that has everyone scratching their heads this season comes in the form of Jorge, a “legal” marijuana distributor in LA, and Anfisa, his Russian mail order bride fiance.
Anfisa has become somewhat of a reality TV anomaly, in that she is NOT playing any head games with the so-called love of her life. Her demands for a $10K monthly allowance and a $45K wedding gown – not to mention the $70K Jorge has already spent on her – are clear, concise, and served up straight. As for Jorge, he seems up for the frank negotiation, if it includes making Anfisa his wife at the end of their 90-day K1 Visa term, which dictates that a couple must marry lest the foreign-born partner be returned to their homeland.
But, let’s start on a positive note! Even though they’ve butted heads on more than one occasion over the years, Christy says she’ll always have a true friend in Tonya Banks. “I think with Tonya nothing would really tear us a part. Tonya’s really solid. I am solid and we’re really solid in ourselves. And, so we know if something … goes on that day, she knows to call me, I know to call her, and we’re cool,” says Christy.
Who’s more important in her own mind than the President of the United States? Kim Kardashian, that’s who! The reality and social media star is taking major steps to beef up her security after a robbery in Paris left her bound, gagged, and minus some serious jewelry – but ultimately unharmed (at least physically).
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, along with her entire Kardashian family, is taking the Paris incident seriously, which is to be expected. But her latest move to hire former Secret Service agents is leading some to wonder: Is this, perhaps, going a bit too far?
