Sandy Yawn

Below Deck Rhylee Gerber

Below Deck cast member Rhylee Gerber always presented a tough exterior.  Whether it was a simple exchange between coworkers or answering to the lineup of bosuns that tried to manage her, Rhylee’s reactionary attitude seemed to escalate situations.  Of course, the toxic masculinity onboard this past season was beyond acceptable, but dealing with male coworkers often put Rhylee on the defensive.  Recall the season with the perfectly respectful Ross Inia as her bosun.

But that is just in the professional realm.  Rhylee does have a positive male relationship in her life.  That person is her stepfather.  This weekend, Rhylee shared some touching photos of her with her stepfather.

Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

Joao Franco’s first season on Below Deck Mediterranean did not inspire a lot of confidence in his ability for a respectful romantic relationship.  His constant flirtations with Kasey Cohen while wooing a smitten Brooke Laughton was cringe-worthy at best.  Their relationship chugged along for a bit after the season ended.  Brooke went to visit Joao’s family in Zimbabwe, which seemed promising, but she ultimately broke up with him shortly thereafter.

Of course that all played out in the Bravolebrity spotlight.  Since then, Joao has been keeping his relationship with girlfriend Michelle Dicu relatively private, except for a few Instagram posts.  But on Friday, Joao did share some very exciting news with his followers.

Below Deck Mediterranean Star Captain Sandy Yawn Had A Heart Attack During A SoulCycle Class

Captain Sandy Yawn, star of Below Deck Mediterranean, is taking care of business. She is a leader in a career mostly dominated by men. Cancer tried, but Sandy beat it. And she overcame a life-threatening motorcycle accident. Throughout the many personal challenges Sandy has faced in her life, she has pushed through with a staunch positive attitude and forayed that into becoming one of Bravo’s most-discussed celebrities.

Even if Captain Sandy isn’t your cup of tea, with her penchant for giving hugs and exasperation of Chief Stews who take too many meltdowns smoking breaks, there is one thing that cannot be denied. Sandy is a badass. Recently, Sandy experienced another harrowing medical incident. Now she is using her platform to raise awareness and share some advice we could all probably stand to hear. Listen to your body, y’all.

Captain Lee Rosbach Reveals Which Real Housewives Of New Jersey Star He’d Want To Work With

Below Deck has become one of the hottest franchises on Bravo. People love to watch the glamorous yacht life and the drama between the crew. Captain Lee Rosbach is somewhat of a pop culture icon at this point. Unlike Captain Sandy Yawn, Captain Lee rules his crew with an iron fish. There is no room for BS, and you need to get your work done. It takes a strong person to work under someone like him.

Before Below Deck, the ruling franchise on Bravo was The Real Housewives. Think for a second and imagine what a crossover might look like. Imagine if Captain Lee hired one of the Housewives to work on his yacht. There is no shortage of Housewives to choose from, but some may lack the work ethic required. Luckily for inquisitive fans, Captain Lee is FINALLY revealing which Housewife he’d want to work with. 

Kate Chastain Below Deck

Andy Cohen announced that Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will join the Real Housewives franchise this past weekend at BravoCon. Both Andy and the Bravo Network hinted that a new Real Housewives show was on the way. However, it’s fair to say that most people did not expect the new show to take place in Salt Lake City. Talk about random! Nevertheless, most people who complained about it will probably tune in anyway. The same thing happens with the current Real Housewives shows that may be falling short.

One show that continually comes through is Below Deck. Its successor Below Deck Mediterranean is an equally compelling show. And now, the Below Deck franchise is expanding with a third show on the network.

Below Deck’s Jack Stirrup Is Expecting A Baby With Girlfriend

Jack Stirrup from Below Deck Mediterranean came across as as an impish guy.  With floppy hair that annoyed Captain Sandy Yawn to no end.  A problem with authority. And a sweet blossoming relationship with fellow co-star Aesha Scott.  They were two weirdos who found each other in the middle of the open sea.

The show has since ended. And reality has slapped everyone in the face.  It appears as though our cheeky brit, Jack, has been quite a busy fella with someone other than Aesha.

Below Deck Mediterranean recap

Here’s a name you haven’t heard in a minute:Malia White. She joined Below Deck Mediterranean as the resident femme fatale and deckhand on Season 2. You might recall she had a thing going on with the yacht’s chef, Adam Glick. Unfortunately for Adam, Malia also had eyes for her bosun, Wes Walton. Captain Sandy Yawn wound up promoting Malia during the charter season. Many people wondered if it had to do with her superior performance as a deckhand or her superior performance at flirting with her boss.

Listen, a girl can’t help it if she is the object of men’s affection. But a girl can help it if she’s leading several people on at once. Wes and Malia eventually parted as friends, but onion-loving Adam probably still uses her photo as his dartboard’s bullseye. She eventually apologized for her behavior surrounding the love triangle and has since moved on to bigger and better things. One of those things is a steady relationship not involving Wes or Adam. Could another be our first female bosun in the Below Deck franchise? The streets are saying it could happen.

Anastasia defends her Attitude as Chef

Despite the inexplicable decision to end Below Deck Mediterranean without a reunion, fans can still get some insider scoop from Season 4.  Cast members have been making the rounds on Watch What Happens Live in a bid to make up for it, and also extend their fifteen minutes of fame.

Most recently was the interior supporting team of Anastasia Surmava and Aesha Scott.  These gals were the most competent and least dysfunctional duo that Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier had to work with.  They also became good friends with their superior and never questioned her work ethic, unlike in previous seasons.  So their storylines had less to do with discussing Hannah’s inadequacies and more to do with the aftermath of Anastasia’s shortcomings in the galley.
