If there's one thing we've learned from watching Below Deck over the years, it's that you do not want to get on Kate Chastain's bad side. Well, it looks like Below Deck Mediterranean's Malia White has found herself in that unfortunate position.
Kate questioned Malia's ideas of professionalism on Twitter since she has kissed two crew members this season: Wes Walton and Adam Glick. "Malia makes out with 2 crew members and suddenly becomes the voice of yachting professionalism," Kate tweeted during Tuesday night's episode. "Bless her heart."
It appears that Kate also didn't like hearing Malia talk smack about Hannah Ferrier, calling her out for her criticism of Bugsy Drake and Adam. "I'm confused. Why does 0% yachting experience Malia think she's in a position to judge Chief Stew Hannah?," Kate tweeted during the episode.
Malia fired back by tweeting, "You don't need yachting experience to judge professionalism."
Malia also asked for Kate to show some empathy toward the rookie. "Don't hate the Greenie," Malia tweeted. "I learned a lot of lessons this season."
Kate seemed to think Malia was acting like she knew more about what it's like to work in the yachting industry, sarcastically asking Malia to "tell me more about working on yachts." But Malia expressed that she felt like Kate was acting like the know-it-all. "You're so quick to judge someone you've never met," she tweeted to the Below Deck chief stew, ending the message with a kissy face emoji.
Kate made it clear that she wasn't here to pick a fight with Malia, but she did offer some final words of advice. "I appreciate your confidence. [I'm] sure you'll do well in anything you pursue," she tweeted. "But maybe lay off the kiss face emoji all things considered."
Malia seemed to take that comment in good humor. "Hahaha thanks girl. I will take it easy on the kisses from here on out!" she tweeted to Kate in response. "[M]uch love."
But perhaps Malia should have known that if you come for Kate's BFF Hannah, there's a good chance she's going to come for you. "I would love to work with or just hang out with Hannah. We've actually chatted on Skype a few times," Kate gushed about Hannah to The Daily Dish last year. "I think we're very similar. We have a lot of the same yachtie friends in the real yachting world. She's badass."
