Bravo not too long ago ran a Below Deck season three marathon, which prompted Chastain to share a reminiscence she had of Walker. “Fun fact: Leon poured an entire jar of honey in my bed while I was off the boat during season 3,” she tweeted. Of course, the jokes rolled in instantly. “Shocked it wasn’t beef cheeks,” one particular person responded. Walker was recognized for continuously serving beef cheeks to visitors.

Another particular person recalled how Dobson kicked sand in Chastain’s common path. “Hmmmmm ….. brings new meaning to *sticky situation * but seriously – this is what people who can’t win a verbal argument do. Rather like kicking sand in someone’s face..”

Really? She’d quite work with Walker over Dobson?

Chastain instructed Andy Cohen she’d quite work with Walker if she had to decide on between the 2.  “Honestly, Leon,” she mentioned when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Her reply stunned Cohen. “Wow,” Cohen mentioned. Why? “Because he didn’t speak much at all,” Chastain replied. “Which was better than Kevin speaking so much.”

Chastain went additional along with her reasoning. “I mean, Kevin is like a Pinterest recipe chef,” she mentioned. “He says I don’t have foodie tastes, but he makes chicken parm.” Although she had no love for Dobson, the 2 appeared to return to an understanding and virtually made up through the reunion. Almost.

During a Below Deck After Show Dobson had some fairly optimistic feedback about Chastain. “Kate was really good in the situation,” Dobson recalled when the galley kitchen stuffed with smoke resulting from a damaged fan. “She set up a fan on one of the benches and we just blew it straight out the door. Kate sorted me out then. Yeah, she’s always been sort of a trooper in those situations. And finds the funny side of things.”

Walker in all probability doesn’t have a optimistic remark to make about Chastain

Walker appeared to vanish from social media after he was fired. He additionally didn’t present up for the season three reunion. But the 2 warred on the present and on social media whereas he was nonetheless on the present.

“I don’t normally bite my tongue during heated confrontations, but with Leon it was different,” Chastain shared with Bravo. “First of all, he made it nearly impossible to get a word in with his constant aggressive interruptions. Secondly, after working with Leon for a few weeks, I just knew that any point I tried to make would fall on deaf ears. Trying to get Leon to calmly and rationally hear any viewpoint other than his own would be a waste of my breath.”

“It was very clear that Leon has a healthy temper and is comfortable crossing boundaries of respect,” she continued. “I don’t know how to explain it other than I was legitimately scared that if actually told Leon what I honestly thought about him, he would fly off the handle and do something we would both regret. If a rabid dog were to come at me, I wouldn’t go and agitate it further or say, ‘Hey buddy let’s talk our way through this.’ I’d just tiptoe away and hope that it didn’t attack me from behind. It was the same feeling with Leon. Civilized communication is a skill that some creatures simply are not capable of learning, unfortunately.”
