What's the One Thing These Bravolebs Can't Live Without?

#RHONY, MDLNY, and #SouthernCharm cast members reveal their non-negotiables for living that #YachtLife.

What are Bravoleb Non-Negotiables?

It's the responsibility of the yachties on Below Deck and Below Deck Mediterranean to make sure that the charter guests have the most amazing time possible. That means they have to fulfill their often-outlandish and uber-luxurious requests, from organizing foam parties to shipping in a bottle of Don Julio tequila to streaming the Pittsburgh Steelers game in the middle of the Med.

But if these yachties had some of their fellow Bravolebs on board, would they be just as difficult to please? Andy Cohen's assistant Daryn Carp caught up with a bunch of Bravolebs to find out their non-negotiables for a yacht excursion during the Below Deck Med premiere party last month (clip above), and some of them will surprise you.

No charter is complete without refreshments, and Bravolebs definitely want their spirits lifted with some spirits on board, from Ramona Singer's Pinot Grigio as a must-have to Landon Clements requesting some rosé for the ride.

Carole Radziwill would have more of a relaxing cruise with "a full-time masseuse," while Luis D. Ortiz would bring his whole family aboard — all 86 of them, he joked. 

Most of these seem easier to fulfill than some of the things charter guests ask for. "You definitely have kind of cash-advance requests, which is definitely not gonna happen," Below Deck Med's chief stew Hannah Ferrier said.

But just give Shep Rose a terrycloth robe and a Speedo swimsuit, and he'll be one happy lad. "I have a collection of Speedos," Shep told Daryn. "I think they're hilarious, don't you?" 

"You think they're hilarious," Daryn told him. "We're not sold on that idea." 

But we have to say that Shep wears it well, as you can see in this collection from Patricia Altschul's Flamingo Party earlier this season of Southern Charm.
