Brianna Adekeye has served as the zen second stew on the fifth season of Below Deck, never cracking under pressure and advising crew members on how to diffuse their own conflicts. It makes the free-spirited stew's recent battle with fellow stewardess, Jennifer Howell all the more surprising. What wouldn't be surprising, however, is if someone else was the actual catalyst for the argument. According to Brianna, Chef Matt Burns is the one to blame. Brianna shared details about the spat this week with Kate Chastain on Bravo's podcast, After Deck with Kate Chastain.
Even Kate was taken aback by Brianna's snap at Jen. She asked Bri what happened. "To be honest, I was having a conversation with Chef Matt and he threw it out there that Jen was bitter," Bri revealed. "And I was agreeing with him." According to Bri, this was the moment Jen overheard and so she pointed her anger at Bri.
"Of course I wasn't going to throw Matt under the bus; that's just not me," Bri explained.
Bri also told Kate that she loved the "olive branch" bracelet that Jen gave her the next day. "I really appreciated that for sure," she said. While Bri wore the bracelet through the charter season, she admitted she lost it when the season finished, "probably diving or something." That makes another piece of precious jewelry lost to the depths of the ocean.
