The crew of the mega-ultra-wish-I-was-on-it yacht Honor were all present to be questioned by Andy Cohen.

For once, we got to see some personal style instead of uniform. And naturally I’ve got thoughts on the all, including their fashion choices…

Adrienne Gang – Chief Steward

She wore a striped nautical dress, which I really liked. (And I guess her anchor flip flops were cute. Not sure on those. But I don’t spend enough time on boats.)

Here’s another thing, while Sam and Kat both were styled in a very ‘sexy’ and trendy ways, Adrienne wore natural, classic make-up and a dress that will never look out-of-date. It’s a Charlotte Yorke approach, and I’m very much a fan of people who are consistent about being a girl-next-door (especially because BRAVO doesn’t have many of them.)

Watching the show, I never thought Adrienne was overly rude to her other stew’s, because they were usually being lazy idiots.

I’m proud she went there, knowing she’d be taking a beating from Sam, once again.

Sometimes, guests ask her to get them a hooker. Wow.

Aleks Taldykin — First Officer

Andy: The hair has changed a tiny bit.
Aleks: Yea, no more sonic.

Captain said he would not work with Aleks again.

Ben Robinson — Chef

I’m not the only one who adores him. But he has a girlfriend named Erin.

We all want to see him do a Top Chef challenge!

C.J. LeBeau — Second Engineer

CJ almost couldn’t attend because he had a misdemeanor assault against his ex-girlfriend.
He wanted to stress how single he was.

He said he was dating someone from home the whole time, and he had “rules.” So they did not sleep together.

He refused to apologize, and tried to say everyone drank on charter – though Eddie, Dave, Adrienne and Aleks said they never did.

David Bradberry — Deckhand

He and Eddie both thought Sam was playing CJ.

Eddie Lucas — Deckhand, Bosun

We didn’t talk to him or Dave much, but I want to mention that these two guys are so likeable, so sweet… ugh, we need them back on our TV for sure. Does that need an exclamation mark? Yes, I think so!

Kat Held — Second Steward

She was very tan, wearing a red dress, and her face was very bronzey and flushed… oye. But her hair was nice! Very sleek and 60’s.

Usually so unprofessional, I was surprised she knew that when you can’t tell a guest ‘no,’ you can put a positive spin on it and give a vague ‘let me see what I can do for you.’ Smart moment, Kat!

She was “mortified” by her video clips of her drunk.

Did she and Ben hook up? She said she doesn’t “kiss and tell.” So, yes.

After the show she considered getting help for her drinking, and called her behavior “out of control.” She claims she did it on her own, though she’s not completely sober.

She called herself “irresponsible” and apologized to everyone in the crew.

Samantha Orme — Steward

Annoying smirk girl wore hot pink lipstick. When Samantha said that Adrienne didn’t lead, but was just a boss and everyone would agree, I definitely saw people shaking their heads and looking around. Suck on that, Sam.

She claimed that CJ and her had a more emotional relationship, and don’t have sexual chemistry.

Below Deck 2

It has ben renewed!

All in all, Sam and CJ provide the drama – but their attitudes are gross. Since Captain Lee doesn’t want to work with many of these people again, I wonder what will happen for season 2…
