The Below Deck crew is always pretty vocal about the charter guests onboard. But now one particularly notable charter guest has responded to some sassy comments the crew made about her in the latest episode of Below Deck.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino climbed aboard the Valor in the January 13 episode of Below Deck, along with her boyfriend, Andy Bohn, and several of their friends. This charter was in celebration of Alexis' divorce from Jim Bellino, which was finalized in August 2018.
And Alexis was definitely feeling her new man during this charter, as evidenced by the fact that they could mostly be seen making out during their time on the Valor. "She just got divorced, and I don't know if she's trying to prove it to her ex or her friends that she is doin' fine!" Below Deck chief stew Kate Chastain said during an interview in the episode. "But you can be doin' fine without having a tongue down your throat."
Given what she knew about Alexis as a Real Housewives fan and how devoted she was to Jim on RHOC, Kate said that this "felt like the publicity tour" for her new relationship during the Below Deck Season 7 After Show, which you can view, above. "Get it, girl," Kate said. "But it's a lot."
When Alexis saw what Kate had to say about her and Andy during the episode, she didn't exactly take her comments as a compliment. In fact, she called the chief stew, as well as stew Courtney Skippon, out for also having their kisses caught on-camera this season. "Pot calling the kettle black????" Alexis tweeted on January 14, along with a clip of Kate and Courtney locking lips with Ashton Pienaar and Brian de Saint Pern, respectively, during one of the crew's nights out. "Kissing shouldn’t be judged or ridiculed, especially if you are doing it too @kate_chastain and @courtneyskippon!!!!"
Alexis can also be heard saying in a clip included in the tweet, "They can kiss, but Alexis Bellino can't kiss her boyfriend on national television? No way."
However, Alexis also noted on Twitter that it was all "fun times" during their charter. "We enjoyed every minute on the Valor!" she tweeted. "Thank y’all!"
And everything seemed all good on Kate's end. She responded to Alexis' tweet, "You were one of my favorite charter guests this season! You two make a gorgeous couple."
