Chrissy Teigen has never been afraid to speak her mind (which we absolutely love about her, by the way), but the Bravo superfan was actually going to reserve judgment on Below Deck Mediterranean's new chef Mila Kolomeitseva after the first dinner she prepared for the charter season looked less than stellar.
That was, until Mila made some homophobic comments in the latest episode of Below Deck Med. "I don't want to see a man kissing a man in front of me," she said in the car on the way to the crew's first night out (clip above). "In your home, you guys can do whatever you want. I don't want my son to be growing up and seeing two men kissing each other and thinking this is normal because this is not f--king normal!"
And, well, Teigen just couldn't hold back her true feelings about Mila after that. "Wowwwww I was hesitant to talk s--t about the chef’s cooking on Below Deck because I didn’t wanna be a jerkhole but then it got to the end and turns out she is also a terrible person," Teigen tweeted earlier this week.
Mila's Sirocco crewmates Travis Michalzik, Jack Stirrup, and Aesha Scott immediately called the chef out for her controversial comments on Below Deck Med. Many of the other crew members also denounced Mila's comments and showed their support for the LGBTQ+ community on social media.
In fact, Mila's behavior inside and outside of the galley seems to have everyone talking this season of Below Deck Med, from Below Deck chief stew Kate Chastain to The Real Housewives of Dallas' Kameron Westcott to Bravo's Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.
We'll hear more from the Sirocco crew about what it was really like to work with Mila in the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 After Show premiering July 29 on Bravotv.com and YouTube. Check out a sneak peek, below.
