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.”
Drama on the high seas by Bravo will continue to float on!
Below Deck, whose freshman season was a surprise hit for the network, has unsurprisingly been renewed! Deadline reported that the second season is already being prepped by production company 51 Minds. Unfortunately Bravo is not bringing back the cast in it's entirety. The show is currently casting for their second season, advertising that they are searching for some "additional cast".
The posting reveals they are looking for: "additional staff members to work on the boat and appear on the show. We are currently looking for Captains, Mates, Chefs. Chief Stews, Stews, Engineers and Deck Hands."
Bravo's surprising hitBelow Deck is taking us inside the world of luxury yacht charters. Despite making me insanely jealous of the guests, I feel nothing but pity for the crew trapped together and forced to cater to every whim of the charter guests.
And it's enough to make anyone crazy. Clearly. The biggest drama on board so far concerns Kat Held, her love of al-al-al-al-cohol, and her hate of boss Adrienne Gang!
“She is absolutely the villain of this show” Kat declares of Adrienne.
And Kat is not stopping there! “I found Adrienne to be two-faced,” she explains to In Touch Weekly. “She says she comes across as professional. She was very unprofessional."
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.
