Wow, this week’s Below Deck Mediterranean was hard to watch. I can’t be the only one who felt that way, right? Watching a tearful Chef Kiko Lorran be chewed up and spit out was not only painful but frankly unfair and all kinds of unnecessary. I mean, last week ended with the Brazilian ray of sunshine being summarily fired by Captain Sandy Yawn. In front of the rest of the crew. In the middle of a charter. And then, he was expected to carry on and rise to the occasion for an entire day and a half after being told his food is terrible.
Tonight’s episode picks right back up in the middle of Sandy informing Kiko that he’ll be done once they reach the dock. And honestly, it isn’t any less frustrating to watch the second time around. In her confessional, the captain admits she likes Kiko. (If you don’t, you have a heart of stone.) But she insists that leading a crew isn’t about liking them, it’s about them doing their jobs correctly. But here’s the main issue with Sandy’s leadership style. Yes you have to find capable employees who can execute their responsibilities. But even more importantly, you have to create an environment as a leader where every person on your crew is primed to succeed and be their best selves. And that doesn’t equal micromanaging every single thing they do and constantly criticizing them as you look over their shoulder.
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance The Other Way was filled with family meetings and suspicion. When entering into any relationship, you are agreeing to also interact with your partner’s family. With this cast, it’s especially important because they will need as support as they can get after leaving everything they know behind.
Biniyam Shibre‘s family grills Ariela Weinberg about her commitment to staying in Ethiopia. Deavan Clegg gives Jihoon Lee a shocking ultimatum. Tim seeks forgiveness from Melyza‘s mom. Sumit reaches out to his brother after running out of options. Let’s get straight to the recap!
As we patiently wait for Southern Charm to return to our screens I guess we can at least be thankful that this crew just keeps bringing the drama off-camera as well. Thomas Ravenel has a fresh ex-girlfriend he made a whole new baby with. Please don’t forget his history of arrests and sexual harassment claims! Meanwhile, his ex-ex-ex-(?) Kathryn Dennis has a new man. Word on the street is Kathryn is also being sued by her former image consultant. You know, after she was under-fire for her use of the monkey emoji when DMing with a black radio host.
Wow, for a show built on old money and family names this sure is a day-time court TV show waiting to happen. Let’s not forget that Craig Conover and Austen Kroll have been seen out several times maskless. Who wouldn’t want to stick around and hang out with these guys? Maybe like, Naomie Olindo and her hot new doctor boyfriend?
Below Deck is just a fool-proof reality TV show. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Take a bunch of young, probably horny and drunk, employees, deprive them of sleep, and make them live in the tightest quarters possible for weeks. Let’s add some no-fucks-given bosses and sprinkle in some rich demanding customers…and…POOF! You have a masterpiece. Oh, and they cut their racist cast member’s scenes at lightening speed. Gotta love it.
This show and Below Deck Mediterranean have both been known to host some bigger names like baseball legend Johnny Damon. I mean, and then there are some that are not so big. I’m talking like Alexis Bellino and that Versailles lady. But you gotta walk before you can run, baby. It’s time to get some big wigs on this thing.
Oh, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? where would we be without you? Sunday nights are filled with plenty of drama now that the show is back and in full swing. But there isn’t just drama, there is confusion. Because who can keep up with the perils of this cast? It’s filled with back and forth, only to be magnified by buzz on social media.
One couple I can never seem to keep up with is Colt Johnson and ex-wife Larissa Dos Santos Lima. For one, the two of them went back and forth for the longest on their
toxic relationship. Once they finally did part, Larissa moved on to another toxic relationship with unknown Eric Nichols. Much like her relationship with Colt, they make up and break up over and over. As far as we know, they are still together at this moment, with Larissa plugging Eric’s OnlyFans account on her social media. Eeek.
For those of you watching Real Housewives of New York, you know that the “Ramona-coaster” is in full swing. That’s right – Ramona Singer is officially ready to rumble with anyone standing in her way. And her main target seems to be newbie, Leah McSweeney. Despite them getting off to a decent start, things quickly grew frosty between the two. Ramona just can’t seem to get over mothering Leah and won’t accept her for who she is. Well, in fairness, who Leah is is a lot. But Ramona could take it down a notch.
The last few episodes of RHONY have showed Ramona’s unwillingness to bend on what she would deem “high society” behavior. But at this point, it’s seeming more like “old puritan” behavior. Ramona should know that sometimes when people are drinking, they get a little rowdy. Especially with this bunch! You mean to tell me that one of her 50 closest friends hasn’t had a lapse in judgment when slinging back cocktails? Seems to me that Ramona is just trying to control the situation. Case in point, Ramona trying to cut the cameras when Leah was grinding on Luann de Lesseps at her birthday party.
After a three month delay, we can finally catch up with Real Housewives of Potomac! Soon we will discover if Monique Samuels and her parrot physically cleaned the floor with Candiace Dillard, or vice versa. But first we need an update on Ashley Darby and the state of her
contract marriage. This isn’t Michael Darby’s first time in the hot seat, because touching seats is what he does best, ALLEGEDLY.
For several seasons, speculations about Michael’s extra-curricular activities have been on the minds and in the mouths of the cast. In 2018, Michael was suspended from filming RHOP after he was accused of man-handling a member of Bravo production. Charges were eventually dropped, but stigma is harder to shed than Robin Dixon’s hope of getting married again. If that wasn’t enough, a kind-hearted individual seemingly recorded Michael on a romantic date. Unfortunately the date wasn’t with his wife, and the setting was a hotel. Now Ashley shares where she and Michael are with their relationship, after navigating the trials and tribulations of suspected infidelity. Again.
If anyone thought that an elderly woman with a cane couldn’t be gangster, they don’t know Debbie Johnson. Don’t ever underestimate the love of a parent. Especially a parent who thinks a woman is trying to steal her husband son. In last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, she pulled off a move that is best described as revenge with a side of shade. Whew, the drama!
Colt Johnson is caught red-handed in a lie. Things get heated between Elizabeth Potthast Castravet‘s family and Andrei Castravet. Larissa Dos Santos Lima and Eric Nichols spiral into chaos. Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa endure a travel day from hell. Angela Deem finally comes clean to Michael Ilesanmi . Syngin Colchester is overjoyed to see his famly. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After recap!
