All eyes are on Lisa Vanderpump these days. If you’re searching for her, don’t look anywhere near the Beverly Hills Housewives. She’s not hanging out with any of them these days, but she does spend time with some beloved animals. Recently, she shared a photo of herself holding a giant bunny.
Flipping Out cast member Jenni Pulos posted a photo of herself and her new puppy named Jax. She did not specify if she named him after Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, but that’s the first “Jax” that popped up in my mind.
That last episode of Below Deck was jam-packed full of drama. Captain Lee Rosbach finally fired Chandler Brooks. Caroline Bedol gave Kate Chastain her “two days notice,” as if that’s an actual concept. Then, Kate and Josiah Carter played loud music to disrupt Caroline when she was resting instead of packing up her belongings. Caroline shared her version of the story with Captain Lee. Then, he questioned Kate based on Caroline’s words.
Ashton Pienaar had sex with a random in a car, which may or may not be related to Rhylee Gerber going off on the rest of the cast. There is just so much to unpack from that one episode. Thankfully, Kate and Josiah were on Watch What Happens Live last night. Unfortunately, they still didn’t have enough time to touch on all the important moments from the episode.
And like dominoes, they fall on Below Deck! Last night the crew lost not one, but two members! It may be for the best, but good lord was everything a hot mess of crazy! My head is spinning.
Following disaster, after disaster, and dropping a guest, then pissing off Kate Chastain over ice cream, it’s Chandler Brooks time to go. Despite being fired Chandler actually waved his pink slip high in the air as he pranced off the boat hoping never to see the red hair of Rhylee Gerber again. Chandler is a free bird – ready to fly right into Jamie Jason‘s arms. He swears he’ll never leave the high seas behind, so maybe we’ll see him on Below Deck Med!
About the only person sad to see Chandler go is Caroline Bedol, who like kinda like-liked him, but kinda just like-liked having someone to funnel her dysfunction onto. BUT now that Chandler is gone Caroline has inherited his entire freezer drawer full of ice cream pints! It turns out ice cream consumption is the nail in one’s coffin on My Seanna, though! You have been warned that frozen dairy kills careers if mixed with Kate.
Captain Lee Rosbach will fire someone on Below Deck. Or at least I think he will. They have been teasing a crew member termination all season on Below Deck. So far, bosun Chandler Brooks and Third Stew Caroline Bedol are the obvious candidates.
Chandler lacks leadership and personal skills. Furthermore, he basically dropped a charter guest last week. Caroline has been a bundle of nerves all season. On top of that, she injured her foot. As a result, she has not been able to pitch in as much as Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter. Will Captain Lee fire either one of them?
Time after time, we the viewers have been hoping that the fumblings of the deck crew on My Seanna would be improved upon the following episode and the Below Deck yacht could sail into proverbial calmer waters. I hoped. We all did.
In a way, things have gotten better. Ashton Pienaar, Rhylee Gerber, and Ross Inia seem to be looking out for each other, and communicating more as a team. Then there’s Chandler Brooks, the Bosun, who picked up a charter guest and saw her slip on algae-covered concrete. After that, he didn’t think to apologize to her or offer first aid assistance.
Like the rest of the audience tuning in to Below Deck each week, Captain Lee Rosbach has reached his limit on how much crew dysfunction he could watch during the last episode. After a bit of a hiatus, Captain Lee returned to blogging on his official website. He shared his opinions and feedback for each of the crew members. Of course, he discussed what went down on My Seanna last week.
Unsurprisingly, Captain Lee had only good things to say about most of the crew. Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, Adrian Martin, Kate Chastain, and Josiah Carter got some well deserved praise. Even Rhylee Gerber’s critique was mainly constructive with suggestions to be less reactionary to
Chandler situations on deck. On Captain’s Lee “screwed the pooch” list was Caroline Bedol, and Bosun Chandler Brooks. This is not at all surprising.
