Below Deck

Instagram Roundup: Teresa Giudice, Stassi Schroeder, Andy

It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.

Bravo worlds collided when Vanderpump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark spent time with (the remaining) Summer House stars Kyle Cooke, Carl Radke, and Amanda Batula.

Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador followed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.

Captain Lee Rosbach and Katie Chastain attended an event in Florida with Below Deck alum Connie Arias. Josiah Carter shared a picture of himself  Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, and Adrian Martin. Meanwhile, the two most controversial cast members (who haven’t been fired yet) Rhylee Gerber and Laura Betancourt took a selfie while kayaking.

Southern Charm stars Cameran Eubanks, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, and Whitney Sudler-Smith enjoyed some quality time. Naomie Olindo shared an “after” photo following some Botox injections. Kathryn Dennis slayed in a hot pink outfit at her brother’s wedding.

Teen Mom and star of the upcoming Ex on the Beach season Farrah Abraham channeled her inner Ariana Grande (who was inspired by Mean Girls) for a photo.

90 Day Fiance couples Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores, Ashley Martson and Jay Smith, and David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan let us all know that their relationships are still going strong with some photos.

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Melissa Gorga and her daughter Antonia posed for a photo with Jennifer Lopez.

Ashton Pienaar Names Below Deck Cast Member Her Never Wants To Work With

The Below Deck viewers are still reeling from that last episode. Ashton Pienaar was mere seconds away from losing his life. He fell got caught in a line, fell overboard, and nearly severed his foot.

He joined Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night to discuss the incident and the rest of the season.

Josiah-Carter

This season of Below Deck is overflowing with drama. That’s definitely a good thing, at least for the viewers. However, it has to be tough on the crew members to be away from their friends and family for these extended periods of time.

Recently, Below Deck cast member Josiah Carter shared a sweet photo with his mother Kairen Carter on social media.

Captain Lee reacts to Ashton going overboard

On last night’s Below Deck the crew dealt with a shocking realization. Ashton Pienaar’s fall overboard wasn’t just a dramatic television moment, but that he could’ve lost his life!

Ashton went off the back of the swim platform after stepping into a tow line which wrapped around his ankle. It was exactly like a movie, but this was actual reality and Bravo editing magic had nothing to do with the events! As Captain Lee Rosbach explained while choking up, Ashton was “within 30 seconds” of losing his life, or at the very least his foot!

The most surprising revelation, however, was that Ashton owes his life (and the continuation of his defined tricep muscles) to the rapid reaction of a Below Deck cameraman named Brent. He literally threw down his camera, raced to the side of the boat, and untangled the lines to give Ashton more time, which set him free to swim to the tender to wait until they were in safer water to bring him in! Maybe Brent should be bosun. Something tells me Rhylee Gerber wouldn’t be talking to him with a nasty attitude! 

Below-Deck

This season of Below Deck delivers week after week, much like Chef Adrian Martin’s cooking. Well, that is until tonight’s episode. The Below Deck crew deals with some majorly picky and stuck up charter guests.

Plus, we pick up right where last week’s Below Deck episode left off with Ashton Pienaar’s man overboard incident. This was the most-teased scene of the season. Of course, we were stuck with a cliffhanger last week. They wanted to drag this out as long as possible, which is a shame, considering how serious the incident was. Thankfully, Ashton is OK!

Man overboard!

Though the man overboard incident only took place during the last few minutes of the most recent Below Deck episode,  Ashton Pienaar being dragged into the water has been the main focus for all the cast interviews this past week.  The entire crew is still coming to grips with the severity of what happened, and what was narrowly avoided.

Tyler Rowland was a witness at the back of the boat with Rhylee Gerber.  As the junior deckhand of the group, Tyler was getting a lot of instruction from Ashton.  Apparently, Ashton himself had warned him about the lines.  Tyler said, “Ashton told us they’re super dangerous.  Don’t step over those lines because they go out.”

Below Deck Aftershow:

On this week’s Below Deck, it seems as if the arrival of the new third stew Laura Betancourt started a sexual awaking of sorts onboard My Seanna.  As if she brought a Canadian jet stream with her down to Tahiti.

The kind of cool and crisp air that makes a person look up from their work and say, “Hey, you’re attractive.” That, or if you give a group of people enough time to drink heavily, something is bound to take root.  A far more likely scenario, but less poetic.

Caroline gets many unwelcome surprises

Caroline Bedol from Below Deck  had an interesting run on the show, to say the least.  At first, she came across as a very chipper and ready to please third stew. However, that persona quickly disappeared when it became evident that anything involving doing two things at once had her running in circles.

I honestly felt bad for Caroline.  She was dealing with personal issues at home and just did not have the personality to handle a reality show or the new Bravo power couple that is Kate Chastain  and Josiah Carter.  Despite her less than graceful departure from the boat, Caroline is still circling the show and its cast members.
