In her five seasons of Below Deck, Kate Chastain has clashed with her fellow crew members before, but never anything like her showdown with new third stew Laura Betancourt. After Kate checked in on Laura's turndown service, Laura told Kate to "check yourself," and let's just say we'd be surprised if these two exchanged Christmas cards this year.
Laura provided some more insight into what was going through her mind during her confrontation with Kate during the latest installment of the Below Deck Season 6 After Show. At first, she was taken aback by Kate's comments. And then, she got angry. "Listen, like, I've been working hard. Recognize that, please. Like, can you recognize that I'm up at 6 every day, I don't get to bed 'til 10? Like, I'm working hard," she said in the above clip. "As a boss, it would have been nice for her to recognize how hard I was working, appreciate it, say thank you, as opposed to sh-- on me."
Kate explained exactly why Laura's turndowns weren't up to snuff during the Below Deck Season 6 After Show. And it's making her wonder if the yachtie has ever stayed in a hotel before. Press play on the above video to find out why.
In the Below Deck Season 6 After Show, you'll also hear from one of Kate and Laura's crewmates who's firmly on Team Laura this season. "I don't think that they were utilizing you for your full potential," the M/Y Seanna crew member said. "And I don't think they were utilizing your talents and appreciated your background."
Has a line been drawn in the sand? We'll find out when Below Deck returns with an all-new episode in January.
