Recently Bravo has taken action during the Black Lives Matter movement and axed several stars for their racist behavior. Vanderpump Rules showed Kristin Doute and Stassi Schroeder the door. The ladies held it open for Pump Rules newbies Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens, who were also fired for their past racist comments.
Below Deck Mediterranean star Pete Hunziker was also let go because of a racist social media post. Yet, there are some Bravo stars that have shown similarly unacceptable behavior but haven’t paid a price for it.
There’s no doubt that the Bravo world is still recovering from some recent firings. Most notably, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute from Vanderpump Rules. Next up to be fired was Pete Hunziker, a newbie deckhand on Below Deck Mediterranean. This was his first season and thanks to a racist post, followed by an abysmal apology, it will be his last.
It’s hard to keep up with some of the problematic pasts of these stars. It seems like everyone has one. Fans are already calling for Jax Taylor’s firing. They aren’t the only ones ready for someone else to be on the chopping block. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge is coming after her former castmate.
There are a lot of reality TV stars getting fired after racially insensitive comments recently resurfaced. Vanderpump Rules fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Brett Caprioni, and Max Boyens. Siesta Key cut Alex Kompothecras out of episodes because of his racist social media posts.
But, there are also some people who came under fire for recent social media activity. The Challenge fired Dee Nguyen for her remarks about the Black Lives Matter movement. And we can add Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Pete Hunziker to the list of fired reality TV stars. From the show, we know him for his condescending and sexist remarks. His online presence is even worse.
Another week, another Bravo star bites the dust for being a complete racist.
On Wednesday (June 17), Bravo announced that Below Deck Mediterranean star Pete Hunziker had been fired from the show and the network for an abhorrently racist post on social media.
Well, well, well. It’s only the third episode of Below Deck Mediterranean and we already have an interior war on our hands. Last week ended with a standoff between Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani, with the chief stew calling Captain Sandy Yawn in to mediate in the standoff with her subordinate second stew. And this week picks up right where we left off in the heat of the battle.
At first, Captain Sandy cuts Hannah off, telling her to let Lara speak, but the captain eventually sides with Hannah after hearing the second stew’s side of the story. In my eyes, it’s a classic Below Deck story. Basically, Hannah is angry at Lara for having an attitude about every little thing and Lara is angry at Hannah for she’s being spoken to. It seems like every season, on every franchise, this issue boils down to one thing: developing an effective management style. However, as much as Hannah’s lack of leadership would probably grate on me too, Lara certainly takes her attitude problem to another level. And it’s only been one charter!
There’s a new episode of Below Deck Mediterranean tonight. The tensions between Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani continues. And while this is apparently Hannah’s last season of Below Deck Mediterranean, this might be the first one where the whole fandom is actually behind her. She has Lara to thank for that. Lara is extremely disrespectful as far as stews go. And she’s not providing much entertainment.
On tonight’s episode, Lara just disappears, somehow, even though they’re all living and working in close quarters on a boat. Just fire her already, Captain Sandy Yawn. Lara’s drama isn’t even enjoyable to watch. She is just so frustrating.
Wow. Lara Flumani has set a new record for the worst stews in the history of Below Deck Mediterranean. And that is a show that has no shortage of emotionally challenging stewardesses! It’s almost like the editors wanted to give Hannah Ferrier a redemption send-off so they hired a person who would definitely make Hannah look good, no matter what.
Lara and Hannah just can’t seem to find any common ground. I blame Lara who views the entire world as being made of extra sharp knives she has to walk over. I refuse to believe she was some sort of super stew, as she claimed on her CV.
Lara has decided that Hannah is not her boss because she doesn’t like to be bossed, whereas Hannah has decided that Lara definitely needs to be bossed. And sassed. Honey. While the guests are playing an after-dinner drinking game, Lara and Hannah are arguing while clearing the table. This all came about because Lara feels condescended to by Hannah requesting she do 3rd stew responsibilities because she has a bad attitude. So hat does Lara do but fight bad attitude with a bad attitude.
Below Deck Mediterranean is back tonight with another new episode. Last week we got to “meet” all of the new crew members in addition to getting reacquainted with Captain Sandy Yawn, Hannah Ferrier, and Malia White.
Right from the jump, Chief Stew Hannah had tension with Second Stew Lara Flumiani. And those issues continue on tonight’s Below Deck Mediterranean episode.
