After an entertaining and tumultuous season sailing around Croatia, the cast of Below Deck Mediterranean is on dry land and ready to face the emotional pirates of their past voyage. Heading up this charter is a take no prisoners when it comes to love, Andy Cohen, who wants nothing more than to get to the bottom of Chef Adam Glick’s heart. Over and over, we have to relive Adam’s take on Malia White, the one that got away, although she’s really less of “the one that got away” and more of “the one who played two guys like a pro and ended up with the other, who she may or may not be dating still (but we all know she is)”. You’re not fooling anyone, Malia! Just because you come to the reunion dressed like you’re on the Real Housewives of the Croatian Seas, doesn’t mean you get to play the same coy games they do.
Before Andy dives in, he starts with a few ice breakers like, who is still working together? Wesley Wiz Walton and Christine “Bugsy” Drake, who is finally the Chief Stew of something besides her own fantasy world. Who would be Hannah Ferrier’s perfect interior crew? Julia and Tiffany from last season and Lauren Cohen from this season, despite the fact that she talked crap on Hannah the whole time. How did Captain Sandy Yawn feel about Adam mistaking her for the Chief Stew? It doesn’t bother her, she is used to it and she thinks it’s fun to surprise sexist chefs who are too proud to follow a preference sheet people.
We have officially reached the end of the road with Below Deck Mediterranean for another season! Tonight we get just one reunion episode to rehash things and let the cast give extended explanations regarding their behavior, their charter guests and the charter season overall.
Malia White, Wes Walton, and Adam Glick are given a chance to hash out their love triangle. Malia will cop to leading on both Wes and Adam, but tries to justify the why. She does reveal that she and Adam never had sex, although nobody is giving Andy a straight answer on exactly what they consider “sex”.
“The wild thing is,” notes Andy, “[Luann] had just gotten all the other women in her corner and rooting for her. That’s what’s also really sad about this, you know? Everybody was on her team.” Then boom: marriage is terminated. Luann’s logic is apparently more backed up than the toilets at Villa Crumbles de Morgan.
Unfortunately for Meghan Edmonds, she doesn’t have much of a story line on Real Housewives of Orange County. Fortunately for Meghan this just means that she has a relatively drama free personal life. So obviously she has to dish on the other Housewives to stay on the show.
Despite their misgivings about Tom – and in some cases, their personal dating histories with him – Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley reached out on social media and news outlets to offer empathy and support. Their statements, much like their TV personalities, varied widely.
