Ro Hernandez

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.

Kate Chastain

Season four of Below Deck has found Kate Chastain and Ben Robinson butting heads of late. Kate claims that it’s not sexual tension (left over from their previous romantic relationship), but simply work tension. It ia just how Ben and Kate operate, apparently!

Kate explains, “There was definitely still tension between Ben and I this season, but it definitely wasn’t sexual. I think the fact that we’re so comfortable with each other can be both a good and a bad thing when working on a boat together. Sometimes minor disagreements escalate into heated arguments quicker than they should because Ben and I don’t feel the need to politely hold back like we might with other crew members.”

Captain Lee

Oh boy. Get ready for an epic smackdown! Taking no prisoners in his blog, Captain Lee berates the entire crew of Below Deck for their frat party behavior on this week’s episode. If he would have seen their antics real-time, Lee assures viewers they would have all (well, almost all) been fired! Alas, he has only Bravo footage to rely upon now. But that’s enough to make his blood boil, apparently.

Lee begins, “Well if you thought I was pissed last week, then you have seen nothing yet…honestly I am seething. As you know, I don’t get to see all of the crew shenanigans until the episode airs, unless I happen to come upon them misbehaving unexpectedly. That was not the case here.”

On last night’s Below Deck, the guests are vomiting, the pool almost drifts out to sea, trouble brews between the newly besotted duo of Emily Warburton-Adam and Ben Robinson, and Ben’s open resentment of Kate Chastain grows. Kelley Johnson is also not having a stellar week as tension continues to rise between Captain Lee Rosbach and him.

But none of that really matters because this happens: Kyle Dixon confesses that he “came out” to his parents at one point in his life, and that he prefers sex with transgender partners.

Okay. Either Kyle is desperately trying to take the place of Trevor Walker as most bizarre deckhand ever, or he’s hatching a cover story to mask his icky feelings after Sierra Storm stone cold rejected him last week. In any case, our boy Kyle appears to be TOTALLY INSANE!

Below Deck recap

After last week’s love fest, hearts are bound to break on this week’s Below Deck. And break they do, when Kelley Johnson discovers Ben Robinson has wooed Emily Warburton-Adam away from his shirtless shenanigans with a mere bouquet of blue roses and a dinner date. Kelley weirdly directs his pent up hormonal rage at the perpetually confused Sierra Storm, though, who also has to weather her own ill-fated date with the very persistent Kyle Dixon.

As Emily and Ben lightly flirt their way through the workday, Kate Chastain still can’t believe how goofy/nervous Ben has been with his newest love interest. So, she decides to humiliate him by asking him to dress as Elvis for a Vegas themed party she’s planning! His grouchy days may be largely behind him, but he’s not about to bow to this wish. Even if Kate did score him a date with Emily. Meanwhile, Sierra is dreading her fishing date with Kyle, and doesn’t have the heart to tell her suitor that she’s kinda-sorta-maybe got a dude back home. Or at least the prospect of a dude!

Captain Lee

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.”
