Kate Chastain - Below Deck

Below Deck returns tonight, bringing some insane charter guests, and a deeper glimpse into what will become of the relationships on this show once the charter season ends. Uh-oh!

With one charter left until the end of the season, Tyler Rowland asks Rhylee Gerber out on an official date. Then, he learns that have drastically different expectations for what comes next. 

Janelle -gets- bad -news -from- producers

On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2,  Jenelle Evans’ baby daddies are coming out of the woodwork. Nathan Griffith took her to court after child abuse allegations.  Jace’s dad Andrew Lewis, showed up out of the blue.  Is Andrew’s new interest genuine? Or does he just want attention? Jenelle definitely has 99 problems, and ALL of her baby daddies are one!

Leah Messer’s daughter, Addie is going to kindergarten. Her twins are starting third grade. Ali is going to get a new aide at school to help her. Ali had not been eating at times in school because she was worried she would drop her tray. Hearing this, broke my heart, I am glad the school decided to give her assistance again. I think it is sad that this school isn’t prepared to help students with disabilities.

Below Deck - Josiah Carter Gold Speedo

On last night’s Below Deck Josiah Carter‘s childhood insecurities were triggered by demanding and flamboyant guests, and Rhylee Gerber and Tyler Rowland took their relationship next level!

After an entire season of Josiah flying under the radar, it was kinda nice to learn more about him.

Morning Afters on this show are always a shammy of shame. Except if you’re Rhylee and Tyler! I don’t know how anyone who spends like 2 hours a day cleaning and 8 hours a day screaming about how she’s being rejected from manual labor has any energy leftover to be sexing down Tyler, but Rhylee does. She has fought flounder with her barehands so clearly she is superhuman. After 3 solid days of hooking up, Rhylee and Tyler are basically levitating on the after-sex glow as they flirt through their chores.

Josiah Carter Below Deck

Tonight the person having the crisis on Below Deck is Josiah Carter. I mean it’s about time he did something besides simmer and sulk behind the scenes, snipe under his breath, and slither about under the protective glare of Kate Chastain! (I kid – I find Josiah hilarious).

After a crazy crew night out Tyler Rowland and Rhylee Gerber went through the five stages of lust, dating, fighting, breaking up, and rekindling. In contrast, Ashton Pienaar and Laura Betancourt have found themselves officially flung out

Janelle-cries-over-husband

Teen Mom 2  is back with a brand news season! Last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2 opens with Chelsea Houska who is seven months pregnant. She and her husband Cole DeBoer just bought a house on a large plot of land in a quiet rural area. The couple seems to be having many new beginnings, with a baby on the way and buying a new home. Everything isn’t as sweet for everyone on. Teen Mom 2. One cast member is fighting child abuse allegations the episode!

Chelsea’s ex, Adam Lind, can now only see Aubrey at a visitation center. He has to show up fifteen minutes early so that they don’t run into one another. If he fails to arrive on time, the appointment is cancelled. While on the way to the visitation, Chelsea is very open and honest with her daughter about why she has to meet her father in this manner. Sadly, she receives a call from the center reporting that Adam didn’t show up and therefore the visit is cancelled. He will have to pay a no show fee in order for them to set up another appointment. My heart broke for Aubrey. It was apparent she was disappointed not to get to see her dad.

Laura Betancourt Below Deck

Lord – this is the craziest season of Below Deck ever! It is literally Wham, Bam, Thank you ma’am, next drama! Laura Betancourt and Kate Chastain went from screaming at each other to peaceably getting along as co-workers. In contrast, Laura and Ashton Pineaar transitioned from friends with benefits to, well, I don’t know what. In less than one episode!

Laura is “sore-ry, not sore-ry” that she told Kate to check herself over some towels not being hung up. This is the myopic world of luxury yachting where the placement of a pond frond can make the difference between a $17,000 tip and a $20,000 tip. Basically what I’m saying is that all the escalated drama over towels and toilet paper matters! The little things become the big things, you guys. And Kate’s refusal to see Laura as the top-notch CHIEF STEW wannabe she is, is a big thing, guys. 

Kate Chastain Below Deck

It’s been so long since we’ve had an episode of Below Deck. I seriously forgot who these people even are. Well, not really.  I think I’ve intentionally blocked Laura Betancourt from my mind, however.

When we left off, before the Christmas holiday, Laura was fighting with Kate Chastain over turndowns. Tonight we see the conclusion of that argument, and the fallout naturally! After Laura told Kate to check herself, Kate checkmated Laura by going directly to Captain Lee Rosbach to report her insubordination. 

Laura Betancourt

On last night’s Below Deck things got really really, REALLY deep. Like penetrating each other in the bunk beds deep and delving into people’s inner psychological matter deep. All the shenanigans make it hard to remember that just 3 days earlier Ashton Pienaar nearly died. He is still wearing the ankle brace to prove it!

With just 36 hours before the new charter arrives the crew heads out for a much-needed break from the close confines of My Stupida. Ashton is especially ready to let loose and be grateful for this amazing life he still gets to lead. Ashton and Ross Inia have evolved from crewmates to soulmates. They have a sweet moment where they discuss survival and friendship. The most detrimental thing they now have to face is Rhylee Gerber!
