Captain Lee Rosbach

Below Deck season finale

Last night was the season finale of Below Deck. Valor whooshed into the dock for the very last time – at least it didn’t crash! Captain Lee Rosbach sent off his motley – literally – crew into the choppy seas and looked forward to a blue horizon filled with competent people. Unless Bravo has anything to do with!

Of course the last gasps of drama were still washing up onto the beach, little bottles with messages that people stopped caring about long ago. Well, all people except Jen Howell. And one little pirate of hearts who swashbuckled his way home – I’m talking about Nico Scholly. And aren’t all my sailing metaphors just as horrific as he is?!

It is the most wonderful time of the year! Not only are there great reality TV shows on right now, but also the winter holidays are coming up! This means that your favorite reality stars are getting festive, picking out and decorating their Christmas trees and attending big parties. They’ve shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup for their fans and followers to enjoy.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Eileen Davidson and her family chose their Christmas tree. Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino went to the Christmas tree farm with her family. Terry Dubrow shared a photo of his wife Heather Dubrow decorating a massive tree at the infamously mysterious (and expensive) Chateau Dubrow. Ex Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman carried her family’s tree with help from her husband Josh Taekman.

It’s time for Captain Lee‘s weekly crew member comments! The Valor captain breaks down each person’s performance on this week‘s Below Deck charter and, as always, he mixes sincere critique with some blunt advice.

On Jen‘s ridiculous antics, “You may not be the worst drunk person I’ve ever observed, but you are in the top 5 no doubt. You have a mean streak that really jumps out after a couple of pops. Kate was totally correct – had I witnessed your behavior, last charter or not, you would have been walking down the dock.” 

Kate Chastain

I hope Jen Howell is getting extra gratuities from Bravo, because Jen may be a terrible stewardess, but she’s basically the only interesting thing happening this season on Below Deck.

Let’s see: Jen has generally sucked at her job, publicly called her boss, Kate Chastain, a whore, gotten sloppy drunk once, or twice, maybe thrice, entered the book of world records for slowest latte making, was sexually harassed, but NOT sexually satisfied as she so desperately wants – instead Yachterella constantly bemoaned that she never gets taken to any balling, luckily Jen also gave herself an orgasm over dinner! She’s also thrown her chief stew under the propellor to guests, fought with Brianna Adekeye, resurrected the Jan Brady hairstyle one flowby at a time, and most recently scratched Bruno Duarte. A small part of me feels like Jen and Tom Cruise are soulmates – now that she’s officially too slut shaming for Kyle Dixon.

Sheesh guys, where is Jen’s fairy godmother?!

Jen Howell

It’s Jen Howell‘s world and we’re all just sailing through it! Or at least that’s what the worst stewardess in Below Deck history seems to believe!

Interactions between Jen and Kate Chastain are still strained after their ‘whore – no you’re the whore’ argument from last week. Jen doesn’t care though – she’s gonna be the best stew she can be (which means the worst stew Kate has ever seen) and she has a new ally in Kyle Dixon. Or so she thinks.

Instagram Roundup: Porsha Williams, Terra Jole, Dorinda Medley, Rasheed Frost, & More

Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.

The Real Housewives of New York ladies posted some great snaps. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams shared a rare photo of herself rocking that no-makeup look. There is a photo of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover, (a now-blonde) Kathryn Dennis, and Kathryn’s son Saint that has plenty of Instagram users wondering if the long-time friends are currently dating. Hold up – Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo posted a photo with Kathryn and Danni Baird. So it looks like they’re all just friends, but you never know.

A charter guest complains about Matt's cooking

On last night’s Below Deck, we lost one crew member and gained another. Well, I use the word “gain” loosely, Jen Howell and Kate Chastain needed an HR rep to review sexual harassment policies. Support each other, ladies – no slutshaming aboard the 5-star Valor! And Nico Scholly made a miraculous recovery.

Poor Nico is in his bunk, all by himself, flexing his hand while tapping on his iPhone just waiting for Brianna Adekeye to check his temperature. Instead Jen and Bri are in hula gear at 1am, faced with a mountain of dishes that gives Jen delirium and psychosis. She’s talking more gibberish than usual, and she’s pretty sure that butter knife turned into a talking seahorse. What was IN that dinner Matt Burns made? It sure wasn’t happy juice!

Instagram Round Up: Kelly Dodd, Kris Jenner, Captain Lee Rosbach, Stassi Schroeder & More

Your favorite reality stars were out and about this week and of course they documented it all for social media.

Shockingly, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador posted a photo with soon-to-be-ex David Beador and their daughter after they announced their intent to divorce. Stassi Schroeder shared a picture from her trip to Paris. Kelly Dodd hung out with Chef Ben Robinson. Luann de Lesseps rocked braids and hung out with RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon for a mirror selfie. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Camille Grammer held her own in Washington, DC.
