Below Deck Mediterranean, the younger sibling to Below Deck, has been one of the most successful reality show spinoffs. Understandably so, as the opportunity to watch beautiful people in stunning locations exhibiting sometimes ugly behavior is just too good to resist! Too much food, too much alcohol and non-stop drama make for great television. Last season, the yacht crew and guests sailed into the beautiful ports of Italy, which made me want to chuck it all and fudge my resume to apply to be a deckhand.
During Season 3, we were treated to crew hook-ups, unruly guests, alcohol-fueled melt-downs and endless tension between Captain Sandy Yawn and Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier. And now, the wait for a new season of merriment on the high seas is just about over!
Ahoy, readers! I must announce all of my nautical dreams and wishes have come true in the form of another series from the very popular Below Deck franchise! Always a fan of watching any and all antics on the high seas, another form of this show brings me so much joy and makes me downright giddy with excitement. This time the action on the high seas will happen aboard a luxury sailing charter rather than the charter yachts we have become accustomed to.
We are coming off the most recent season of Below Deck where we witnessed wild (“I’m a boat captain too you know!”) Rhylee Gerber yelling “Got it!” to long-suffering Bosun Ross Iniaa minimum of 15 times per episode. And, of course, the amazing working relationship between Queen of the High Seas of Chief Stew-dom Kate Chastainand Josiah Carter. #bestseasonever
Below Deck Mediterranean’sJoao Franco has a new lady in his life. And unlike Joao’s last attempt at a mature relationship, he seems very confident in his decision this time. She’s even got him smitten enough to be sharing sentimental poems and quotes about serendipity.
Joao’s current love interest debuted on his Instagram back in November. The two were paddle-boarding in Fort Lauderdale. Since then, Michelle Dicu has appeared with the Season 3 bad boy spending Christmas at the beach and enjoying cozy dates in Manhattan. Joao even dedicated a poem to his sweetheart for Valentine’s Day.
There’s nothing like some mother/child time, right? Kelly Dodd took her daughter Jolie to Phoenix via private jet. How Lala Kentof her! Teen Mom star Jenelle Evanstook the low key route. She just posted a selfie with her baby girl.
Kristin Cavallarishared photos with her children taking care of a baby bird. Shamari DeVoeshared a throwback photo breastfeeding her twin boys. This is probably going to get some attention, because… well, it’s 2019. People are just looking for reasons to be offended these days.
Below Deck Mediterranean will be back for Season 4. Bravo revealed the familiar faces in the cast lineup for the next season. Captain Sandy Yawn is back to navigate the picturesque waters of the Mediterranean. This time in South of France.
Hannah Ferrier returns as Chief Stew. That’s to be expected. She’s been with the show since the beginning. It doesn’t seem like any of her second or third stews ever have any longevity though. Brooke Laughton andKasey Cohenwill not be returning.
It’s safe to assume that pretty much anyone reading this is thankful for reality television. This gratitude is probably applicable to reality TV Instagram posts as well. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from their Thanksgiving celebrations and charity work.
There are some reality TV Thanksgiving gatherings that I wish were filmed. First and foremost, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, and Stassi’s man Beau Clark all spent Thanksgiving together. Stassi even joked on Instagram, “Why weren’t the cameras here?” Seriously though. That is a great question. Exes hanging out and actually being friends will forever fascinate me.
Speaking of exes, JWOWW and her ex Roger Mathewsspent time with family on Thanksgiving. What is going on with the two of them? Are they just keeping it cordial for the sake of the kids? Are they repairing their romantic relationship? Either way, there were no smiles in the Instagram posts.
The set of these WWHL Reunions is so depressing, isn’t it. Like getting married in a Vegas chapel with a liquor store next door. It just doesn’t translate to ‘daytime’ activities. Who wants to bear their soul in front of a rhinestone Snoopy or a photo of Ramona Singer doing Turtle Time in a satin dress? I guess Joao’s nervous breakdowns don’t discriminate?
