Here's What Happened Between Jenna and Madison After the Below Deck Sailing Yacht Reunion

Jenna MacGillivray opens up about her tearful apology to Madison Stalker and their post-reunion conversation.

Andy Cohen revisited the biggest moments of Season 1 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht when the whole Parsifal III crew reunited on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home on June 1. The yachties looked back on the most-talked-about moments of the season, from Paget Berry and Georgia Grobler's flirting to Parker McCown's resignation to Adam Glick and Jenna MacGillivray's relationship.

However, the conflict reached new heights when it came time to break down all the drama in the interior this season, especially Jenna and Madison Stalker's working relationship. We caught up with Jenna via video chat on June 2, the day after the Below Deck Sailing Yacht reunion aired, and asked how she felt things went with Madison during the virtual sit-down.

"The same as they always do," Jenna said in our new video series The Final Word, which you can view, above. "I think it's very clear that her and I are just fire and ice, and we're just not gonna be on the same page, and that's OK."

During the reunion, Madison confronted Jenna about how much she hurt her this season, expressing that she felt "excluded" by the chief stew and that she made her "life a living hell." "Well, to be honest, I'm not responsible for that. Tell me exactly how I bullied you to the extent that you felt that you needed to cry every night or that I excluded you," Jenna responded to the claims Madison made during the reunion. "Like I said, we were all joking and laughing together all the time, and literally everyone but Madison and Parker were on board with that. We'll continue joking around, and we weren't joking about them. To be honest, I never excluded her. I didn't have anything in common with her."

As the Below Deck Sailing Yacht reunion came to a close, Jenna delivered a tearful apology to Madison for her behavior this season. But, as Jenna mentioned during the reunion, this wasn't the first time she had shown remorse for how things went down with the second stew. "With Adam, when we left the season, and we were doing our road trip, I would constantly talk about this feeling like, 'Oh, I'm really frustrated that Madison still thinks I'm this a--hole, and it's really bothersome to me.' He's like, 'Well, maybe you should contact her.' And I was like, 'Yeah, I will,'" Jenna said. "So I sent her an apology, and it was like, again, nothing I ever did or said would just be resolved. [Madison] at first wrote, 'OK, yeah, there shouldn't be bad blood.' And then it was like, as soon as that happened, 'Well, why did you want to fire me? Why did this happen?' I could never just have a conversation with Madison. I tried, I really did." 

Madison said that she accepted Jenna's apology during the reunion and that she had moved on from their drama. The two even talked after the reunion, according to Jenna. "We had a phone call after the reunion, and she seemed to accept my apology, but now is still posting negative stuff about me on social media. She is liking the comments of trolls. She is reposting things that speak negatively about me," Jenna said. "I've never said anything about her on social media. She has done that from the start about me. So it's like, that's not a good person to me."

When asked if there was anything she could have done differently in order to have a smoother time working with Madison this season, Jenna said that she "would've suggested firing Madison." "She should've been let go," Jenna said.

Jenna added that Madison "equally" didn't like her this season and that they would both probably agree that they would never want to work with each other again. The chief stew also said she doesn't see them having much of a personal relationship in the future. "We go nowhere. I live my life, and she lives her life," Jenna shared. "Hopefully, she's happy. I wish nothing but happiness for anyone. I wouldn't have ill wishes for her. I hope that she does well in life, and that's all."
