Kate Chastain hasn't shared much about the legal situation with her ex-girlfriend Ro Hernandez since their public drama grabbed headlines last year. However, the Below Deck chief stew is getting ready to set the record straight on what really went down with her ex.
Kate said that she may soon be able to share more details about that difficult time during a recent interview with ET. “The charges have been dropped and I'm allowed to talk freely about it later,” she shared. “So, right now, I'm agreeing to not talk about it until about March. But then, come March, I am really ready to talk freely about it."
And Kate explained why she's looking forward to revisiting that painful period. "A lot of people are like, ‘Are you sure you want to revisit that?’" she said. "Well, yeah. If you feel like you never got your chance to say, you know, something. So, I can't decide yet. I'm gonna see how I feel in March.”
Kate confirmed to The Daily Dish last month that she has neither spoken to Ro nor does she plan on keeping in touch with her. As far as her current dating life goes, Kate told ET that there are "slim pickings" back home in Florida. “It's like retirees,” she said. “[And] I don't trust my judgment. If I'm attracted to you, I'm probably going to run … I'm still going through that rebel phase."
But Kate does know that she's done with dating women from here on out. “I checked that box,” she said. “It's like, in yachting sometimes, you visit a country you haven't traveled to, and then when you depart you're like, 'Well, I don't need to go back there’ ... I came, I saw, I conquered, I left.”
